Glamping: The one activity of camping with some of the comforts and luxuries of home. Or, if you're a visitor at Dunton Hot Springs in Dunton, Colorado, the activity of camping with the most incredible comforts and luxuries in the world.

Sound amazing? Oh, it is. The Dunton Hot Springs bathhouse at dawn. An actual ghost town that's been restored to more than working condition (did we mention it's amazing?), the small and exclusive destination that is Dunton is nestled in the Colorado Rockies.

The resort's private hand-hewn log cabins come exquisitely furnished and are just steps away from the restorative hot springs, a winding river and miles of trails through the San Juan Mountains.

Other top-notch amenities in Dunton include a life-worn saloon serving sophisticated fare in a rustic setting; outdoor activities, yoga and pilates; and indulgent spa treatments. Free of cell phones, this romantic old mining town still provides high speed wireless internet access in every cabin, although we think you'll be too busy relaxing to even open up that laptop.
