Experience rural Colorado in styleDolores, USA

For those who like the idea of being at one with the great outdoors, but can’t imagine life without a hot bath, there’s glamping on this Colorado property about 50 kilometres from Telluride. Eight tents – each with handcrafted beds, gas fireplaces and full-sized tubs – are located either on the banks of the Dolores River or in a forest tall with blue spruce and ponderosa pines.

Meals are served at the renovated farmhouse, where there’s also a bar on the veranda overlooking the Wilson Range. Guests can also get a shuttle to the nearby Dunton Hot Springs resort, built in a former ghost town, to soak in the healing waters. Go horse riding in the High Rockies, mountain biking, hiking, rock climbing, fly fishing (there are guides for beginners) or relax with a massage or body treatment in the spa tent.


  • Spacious, bespoke glamping tents
  • Wi-fi
  • Ensuite bathrooms and gas stoves inside each tent
  • Mountain bikes and lawn games are offered free

About US$1438 a night, though all meals and beverages (alcoholic and non-alcoholic), the sauna, the mountain bikes etc are included.
