In a rural corner of southern Colorado, the historic Dunton Hot Springs resort has its roots in the late 1800s, and bridges the gap between Dunton's history as a mining town, and its current position as a rather luxurious vacation spot, where visitors can play at being old-timey homesteaders, all with the feel of a hotel, or perhaps a very upscale sleepaway camp. The resort is open year-round and features seasonally appropriate activities, like horseback riding, fly-fishing, in- and outdoor hot springs, and lots of other ammenities that should make it worth the trip. The resort is made of 13 'homestead cabins,' including one with canvas walls, and the option of an extra teepee outside. The whole thing is spread over 183 beautiful acres of Colorado land, with two rivers, a waterfall, and a gorgeous view of the mountains. It's shabby chic, but not too shabby.
