COLD STAN­DARD COLORADO

London Evening Standard (West End Final B) - ES Magazine - - Weekending Xxx Xxxx Xxxx -

Dun­ton Hot Springs might just be the most pic­turesque place to stay this side of the Milky Way. A re­stored min­ing vil­lage in a se­cluded Colorado val­ley at 8,900ft, this ‘ghost town’ is now a col­lec­tion of log cab­ins with a nat­u­ral hot spring pro­vid­ing the per­fect way to thaw out. Make the most of the wide-open spa­ces with down­hill and cross-coun­try ski­ing, hik­ing, rid­ing, dog sled­ding, snow­mo­bil­ing, ice skat­ing and ice climb­ing. Wan­der around out­side and you’ll be fooled into think­ing you’ve time-trav­elled back to the days of the Gold Rush, but in­doors, the cab­ins are warm and cosy, with ex­otic touches — one even has a huge slate hot-spring pool that fills in just 20 min­utes. And af­ter all that you can have a glass of wine from the ho­tel’s vine­yard, sit­ting in the saloon where Butch Cassidy and the Sun­dance Kid are said to have hid­den out af­ter rob­bing the Tel­luride bank. From £377 per night, full board (dun­ton­hot­springs.com)
