DINING AT DUNTON Dunton's Chef draws on his classical training to create a new menu every day using local and regional ingredients, some from our farm and vineyard. In the late summer we gather wild mushrooms, chanterelles and boletus in the surrounding mountains. The open kitchen is the heart of the old Saloon for everyone to see and enjoy. People love to watch and even help the Chef, as he makes the days fare. We welcome the opportunity to prepare something special, just say the word. We all eat at a long, antique table in the center of the Saloon. A tradition from the big cattle outlaws that we choose to maintain. Breakfast: The morning starts when you want. Meander over to the Saloon. You will be greeted by an array of fresh delectables, aromatic coffees and teas, and just-squeezed fruit juices. Our Chef is then ready to prepare whatever you choose. Lunch is both casual and special. For the adventurous we will put together the most wonderful picnic for your fishing trip, hike, horse ride or the shady mountain meadow you have picked out. Dinner is the pinnacle and culmination of a day of excitement, wonder and relaxation. Among friends, sharing the stories of the day. Amazing food, fine wines and delightful company come together to enrich the evening. Wines: Sutcliffe Vineyards is our winery. At Dunton guests have the opportunity to sample from John Sutcliffe's wide array of exquisite wines. Wines that are crafted to accompany food. www.sutcliffewines.com.
A number of major airlines provide daily service to the region through Durango, Telluride, Cortez and Montrose. Whether you would prefer to make arrangements for the staff to meet you at one of these airports and drive you to Dunton, or rent a car to enable you to explore the area on your own, your brief journey will provide a glimpse of the Rocky Mountains you will not soon forget. Airports for more information: Durango Airport (DRO) Phone:+1-970-247-8143 Telluride Airport (TEX) Phone:+1-970-728-5323 Cortez Airport (CEZ) Phone:+1-970-565-7458 Montrose Airport (MTJ) Phone:+1-970-249-3203
Cortez is a popular stop for tourists, who do not necessarily tour the city, but stay there because of its central location among surrounding attractions, such as Mesa Verde National Park, Monument Valley, and the Four Corners.
Saloon & Dance Hall The Saloon is the heart and soul of Dunton and is replete with local lore. Many of the fixtures are original, including the rustic wooden bar in which are carved the monikers of Butch Cassidy and his sidekick Sundance, attesting to the lawlessness that prevailed in this part of Colorado in the 1800’s. There is a spacious sitting area, a large communal dining table, and a pool table. The kitchen is open and guests particularly enjoy being able to watch and even participate in the preparation of the day’s fare. Adjoining the Saloon and equally steeped in history, the Dance Hall is the perfect place for a wedding party or a family gathering. If only its walls could speak, they might recount many a secret from the "fallen angels", miners, trappers and cowboys who built Dunton Hot Springs.

This perfectly restored ghost town thrives on contradictions; hand-hewn log cabins exquisitely furnished, a life-worn saloon serving food of startling quality, lung torturing trails followed by pampering massages, sensuous hot springs beneath shimmering snow banks. Free of cell phones, this romantic old mining town still provides high speed wireless internet access in every cabin and video conferencing in our dance hall to the comforting sound of a tumbling waterfall. Contradictions indeed; gentle tranquility or a host of breathtaking adventures. Dunton can steer you to adventures you’ve only dreamed of. Sturdy horses to penetrate the endless wilderness, helicopter skiing in a silent world of billowing powder, mountain biking, snow shoeing, hiking, from gentle to demanding, camping, fly fishing, river rafting, kayaking, the list is endless. Or perhaps more contemplative days exploring North America’s most evocative archaeological sites, all within a short drive of the resort. And the desert beckons, from the haunting beauty of Monument Valley and Canyon de Chelly, deep in the Navajo Reservation, through the sculpted wilderness of "Valley of the Gods" to our own vineyard in McElmo Canyon. Or simply soaking for hours in our natural hot springs under an edgeless sky.
