Cowboy Cabins: Dunton Hot Springs, Colo.
A late-1800s Rocky Mountain mining town that by 1918 had become a crumbling ghost town, Dunton was restored in the 1990s and converted into a stunning mountain retreat. Today, 13 luxurious cabins (from $600/night) dot the picture-perfect 187-acre property surrounded by southwest Colorado’s San Juan Mountains, where biking, hiking, fly-fishing, rafting, kayaking—and, come winter, heli-skiing—adventures await. After a day out, enjoy a chef-prepped meal and soak in natural hot springs.
Remoteness: Dunton is located 30 miles from Telluride—the last 11 of which are over rugged dirt roads.
Book It: Whenever. If you’ve got the cash, most likely they’ve got a room. duntonhotsprings.com
