If you've ever wondered what it would have been like to live in a small village in the 1800s, head to Dunton Hot Springs. Just over the ridge from Telluride, Dunton is a reclaimed ghost town that's been transformed into a serene upscale getaway. The accommodations include 13 restored log cabins built in a circle around a saloon — itself restored, serving up fantastic food — a dance hall, and a bath house. Just down the river are eight luxurious canvas tents, and there's also an open-air chapel, library, and, of course, natural hot springs on site.
