Dunton Hot Springs is simply the most delightful "get away" my wife and I have ever experienced. Our vacations are almost always somewhat adventureous, whitewater rafting, skiing vacations, etc. We live on the Gulf Coast and really needed a break from all the hard work after Hurricane Ivan devastated our community. When we listed our " fantasy" criteria for the perfect vacation spot it had to include a wild and scenic setting in the mountains that offered solitude and solace for our weary souls. Our fanatasy hierarchy of "needs" included a hot springs, at least a 4 star resturant in the vicinity and of course of good bar. Hiking oppportunities were a necessity as we did not want to just lay around and relax. My wife read an article about Dunton Hot Springs in a travel magazine while at a doctors office. When she came home she said she believed she had found the perfect place.
Dunton Hot Springs is a wondrous place of exquisite solitude and beauty. The attention to detail and finery is so tastefully implemented that it exudes a down to earth beauty that attracts Dukes and Duchesses, as well as those willing to go the extra cost for a unique experience. The hot springs, personal attention, dining and well-thought out amenities make one feel as if they have encountered heaven on earth.
Do yourself a favor: Book this adventure in living, hiking, skiing, fishing, horseback riding well in advance and book it longer than you would imagine. You will not regret it!

We were married at Dunton in September and it was perfect! Our guests came from all over and everyone raved! The staff is fabulous--fun, helpful, totally professional; the food was delicious; the cabins are unique and beautiful and the setting. . . well, it's just amazing! It's causal, elegant and so classy! Plus, they have wonderful robes! We've been three times and I know we'll keep going back!
