Dunton Hot Springs

I have found the most incredible place. No really- I know I'm always saying stuff like that on here, but I really mean it this time. I swear! Ok, so I know I have a fondness for Colorado, probably because we went on so many vacations there as a child, but this luxury resort has been featured in worldwide magazines such as Vogue, Conde Nast Traveler, and Tatler, so it's not just me. It's called Dunton Hot Springs and is just across the mountain from Telluride. It's basically a ghost town that a couple bought and restored with all of the original miners cabins uniquely furnished with the owner's finds from around the world. A spa, library, organic award winning dining, and activities that range the gamet from horseback riding to helicopter skiing (you get there via helicopter as well) will keep you busy for days. And even cooler, some cabins have a private hot spring right outside of the door if you don't care to join anyone else in one of the six hot spring spots on the property to choose from. Something else that really seemed to reel me in was that there is an option to rent the entire town for private use for up to 42 people. Can you imagine doing this for a wedding!? Oh and on top of that, did I mention...the entire town is free of cell phone service! Now I know that a lot of people would turn their backs on it now, but being completely unreachable is so freeing. I could go on and on about all of the amenities, but you just need to visit their website on your own to get the full effect. My bags are packed.

I think my heart leapt right out of my chest. Absolutely incredible. I spent a lot of time in Montana as a child & CO reminds me of it from these photos. How about that one of the indoor pool with the stunning view...OMG! Thanks for the fun *sigh*
