Colorado’s Most Desolate Hot Springs Resort Is In A Ghost Town
This place is truly a hidden gem, and a haunted one at that.
If you're looking for a break from the daily grind, whether it be work, traffic, people in general, who can blame you. I think we can all use something like this from time to time, and it's certainly important to remember to just unplug sometimes. From everything.
Thankfully, we live in a state where you can go from bumper to bumper traffic to being almost completely secluded rather easily thanks to places like this: Dunton Hot Springs, which is about 25-30 miles outside of Telluride.
Oh, and did I mention the town itself is a ghost town? Yeah, pretty cool right?
Not only can you spend some time relaxing at a resort in the middle of nowhere of an old town that's haunted, but you can actually rent the entire town for parties, anniversaries, really any kind of gathering. I mean, how cool is that?
With that being said, if it's an actual break from people you want, then this is perfectly suitable for a solo or couple's retreat to get away from it all.
Dunton Hot Springs is also home to Colorado's only geyser which bubbles up about every 45 minutes.
Tell me this doesn't look like the perfect winter escape into a Colorado postcard:
While this may be a bit of a haul for us here in Northern Colorado, if you're looking for a nice weekend getaway and/or something different, this just might be the perfect escape to restart and rejuvenate the mind, body, and soul.
This place was even recognized on the Travel Channel:
