Not too many people have heard of Dunton. That's because until only a few years ago it was a ghost town. A ramshackle collection of rustic log cabins, it is typical of the makeshift mining towns that sprung up in the Rockies during the gold rush of the late 1800s.
Bang in the middle in one of the most pristine and spectacular stretches of Rocky Mountain wilderness and flanked by no less than three 'fourteeners' - local jargon for 14,000 foot (4,000 metre) peaks - Dunton is blessed with breath-taking scenery and a plethora of natural hot springs.
Rustic Santa Fe antiques, African masks, Turkish kilims, Rajasthani beds, Chinese chairs and Moroccan rugs are combined in one cross-cultural eclectic bundle to give each cabin a style of its own and a sophistication that perfectly complements the ragtag exteriors of these former miners' huts.
