dunton hot springs

since leftovers are on the menu for tonight, instead of a recipe, today i get to share my latest travel fantasy with all of you!  dunton hot springs: the #7 luxury hotel in the U.S., the #6 all-inclusive in the world, and 2010 Trip Advisor Travelers' Choice Award...WOW!  it is jaw-dropping gorgeous...

first of all, i simplycannot believe a place like this actually exists!  after stumbling upon it last week, it's hard to stop myself from daydreaming about spending a few nights in one of the beautifully, cozy cabins.  dunton hot springs resort is a restored ghost town magically tucked into the san juan mountains of the colorado rockies, just across from telluride, colorado.  not only does dunton offer amazing places to stay, but it has tons of activities such as fly fishing, natural hot springs, horseback riding, hiking, skiing, snowshoeing,  and dogsledding, and a local and regionally sourced menu served in the old saloon! 

if all of this is not great enough, you can rent the entire town for up to 42 people!  what a perfect spot for a reunion.  friends???  family???  are you reading this?!
