At Dunton Hot Springs, there are just 13 historic log cabins and cottages, most hand-built by the original miners who occupied the town, and all have been restored and renovated, with modern bathrooms added. They are still furnished with original artifacts, including rifles (firing pins removed, of course), medicine bottles and lamps. Each is unique with a different size, layout and name, but all have an Old West motif of logs or barn board walls, wooden floors covered with throw rugs and furs. Most have wood stoves and porches. Well House is the only one with its own hot spring, piped into a soaking tub, as well as a cold plunge. Dolores Cabin has a large deck overlooking the namesake Dolores River. Vertical Log is an unusual cabin made from upright cottonwood logs. It’s larger, accommodating up to six, with two bedrooms and two baths, one with an oversized antique copper soaking tub. There is one larger cabin, Potter House, which sleeps up to 10, and Christy’s Tent is a hybrid of wooden walls and canvas, sort of a cross between a luxury safari tent and cottage. An important part of a stay at the all-inclusive hotel is choosing the cabin that best suits your tastes and group size. All are just steps from the main house and saloon.
