The seven hour drive through acres of snow covered mountains and pine forests was full of promise. So we were disappointed when we pulled into a muddy drive with a tiny, flat encampment of cabins. We had to ring the gate twice to get in, because the attendant confessed he forgot to buzz us in the first time. Not an auspicious beginning for an alleged, top 10 luxury resort, but we tried to keep an open mind. We were told lunch would be duck salad. I envisioned seared duck breast. Instead we were given a scoop of what resembled canned tuna drowned in Mayo, some field greens, and four points of toast. The table next to us asked, “is this for two people” and my fiancé asked is this the appetizer? We were told this was the entire lunch. We asked what was for dinner and the waitress didn’t know. The intro email says the chef will custom prepare what you like, so we asked for another option. we were given grilled cheese sandwiches that were edible, although they were doll-portion sized. we paid 1500 a night to stay at dunton, and I assume some guests paid more. But The kitchen must have spent less than 30 dollars on the ingredients to prepare everyone’s lunch. Admittedly, the drinks were strong, which was a positive. We were taken on a tour of the property next. The indoor hot spring was rustically elegant, but Luke warm. The outdoor springs were tepid and dirty. There are no views from the springs, despite what dunton advertises. We were informed that because we had a service animal, we could not stay in the christys tent we had booked. the resort was put us in the geyser cabin instead. they didn’t tell us geyser was the size of a garden shack and had no fireplace. It also had an outhouse closet for a toilet. There was Nothing luxury about it...and The WiFi did not work. Dunton failed to alert us that geyser costs $350 a night less than what we paid for Christys tent...they just expected us to pay the christy price and be cool with the downgrade. Meanwhile they upgraded another party to our original booking. When I called them out in it, they didn’t have a response for me. We high-tailed it out of there within an hour of arriving, and drove another 7 hours late into the night. We were exhausted, but it was worth 14 hours of driving NOT to spend thanksgiving at Dunton. the final straw was the decor in geyser, which bordered on offensive. There were schlocky, replica African masks hanging on the walls. They were out of place in what was touted as an authentic, Colorado mining town. It was particularly painful because we had driven through Navajo nation to access dunton, where covid-stricken artisans could really use duntons support. It would be aesthetically appropriate, not to mention kind, to display local, Native American artwork in the cabin. Dunton: if you ignore all my other critiques, please consider at least this one.

Aside from getting stuck in the snow on the way up and having to walk at night the last quarter mile, it was a marvelous stay. At one point as we were stuck, Jay, a Dunton employee, stopped to render necessary, very welcome, and very kind assistance. He’s a saint. We spent four night in Bjoerkman cabin, the oldest cabin there. It is supposed to have a direct view of the waterfall, but it’s difficult to see. The cabin has a couple of chairs at the front. The cabin is sort of like a junior suite, with a sitting area and then the bed area, with a wood burning pot belly stove in the middle, which worked very nicely. The cabin is not particularly large, and our gear took up a lot of space because there isn’t much closet space. There is no minibar or anything like that, but there is a phone (no cell service, but very good WiFi) and a safe. The bed was very comfortable with good sheets. The couch was torn in several spots. Perhaps that is part of the ambience. The bathroom has a single sink, excellent Aesop amenities, good towels, shower tub combo, toilet cubicle, and beads at the top of the three stairs to the loo to keep you aware of the stairs. The view from the several windows was good. There were enough outlets, but lighting in the room was not good. They could use a couple more. At 7:30 every morning, we were brought a tray with coffee and cups. We’d then make our way to breakfast in the main house. It was usually not hard to find COVID-safe space to eat, but we did eat in the cabin a couple of times because it was too crowded, even though the resort keeps a 50% occupancy rate for safety. The eating areas are in the main room with the bar and in the saloon, which is a bit big and somewhat lacking character for me. Most everyone wore masks, except some workers outside did not. Food was delicious. Chef Aaron and crew do a super job of creatively serving local stuff on their daily lunch and dinner selections. There were choices only for breakfast, but if you have an issue with an item, they will take care of you. Our first night of braised beef, for example, was superb. They are also great at soup, salads, and desserts. Staff was uniformly friendly and warm. There is no tv, and that was a good thing in general. Not too much withdrawals. Dunton gets great word of mouth for a reason. It’s a wonderful escape and in a simply beautiful location. So, if you want rustic comfort on a beautiful mountain with quite a few activities, this is for you. Highly recommended.

There are unique, luxury experiences, and then there is Dunton. My wife and I first went to Dunton in 2017 for our honeymoon. Since then we have returned 1-2x a year for our annual "reset". Overall: The natural hot springs, top level service, amazing bedding, farm to table meals, craft cocktails, wood burning fireplaces, and unreal scenery all come together for the unique, luxury experience that is Dunton. I cannot wait till we get to go back! The Service: The staff is so friendly. They don'y only meet your needs but anticipate them. One time, my wife and I got our car stuck on the way in. I was worried about AAA, towing, getting home, etc. As I walked to the property, the staff kindly asked "are your keys in the car or on you". The next morning my car was in the parking lot. Another time, I was a little hungry and craving a mid night snack...they made me the most amazing grilled cheese after the kitchen was closed. The Facilities This is rustic, refined, and real. An original mining town that has been transformed into a 5 star property cannot be replicated. I love boutique hotels and I feel like Dunton takes this to another level. Add the natural (sulfur free) hot springs on-top of it, and you are in heaven. COVID Vacations look different right now. Dunton has adapted and still delivers an amazing experience.

Dunton Hot Springs is a hidden gem! I cannot imagine a more idyllic place to kick back, relax in the amazing hot springs, hike, go fly fishing and experience breathtaking views. The meals were fabulous - imaginative and beautiful in addition to delicious! The best part about Dunton, however is the quality people. To a person, the people working at Dunton bent over backwards to meet every need. Preferences at meals were noted and consistently provided - without fail. We were made to feel like we were the only guests on the gorgeous property and that the only goal was to make sure we had an exceptional experience. We loved every minute!

There is no place quite like Dunton Hot Springs. Winter, summer both offer completely different and magical experiences. We came for New Years Eve in 2016, and when we got married in 2019, we knew exactly where we wanted to do it :) (And they let you rent the town!) Each cabin (& tent) are beautifully outfitted and unique. The beds are comfortable. It's hard to say which cabin is our favorite, we have been in them all at this point...honestly, depends on your mood! Check the listings carefully to see which one is for you (and if you are bringing a dog, make sure you pick a dog friendly cabin!) Morning coffee is delivered to your doorstep, but the breakfast in the saloon is not to be missed. The kitchen is creative and delivers consistently every time. Dinners (precovid) were social experiences, and offered the opportunity to mingle with other guests as much (or as little) as you would like. Over the course of the 7 nights we spent here (in both trips), the staff was very warm, helpful, and non intrusive. They go out of their way to make sure you are having a fabulous time and seem to genuinely care about making your experience special. As far as activities go, there is so much to do, winter or summer. The hot springs itself is the obvious (and free) one. But we highly recommend fly fishing, hiking, and the horseback riding (my fave). If you are on the fence, do it. There is no place more serene. Thanks Dunton, and hope to see you soon!
