Average time to visit

The Colorado mountains have an extreme continental climate with very cold winters and warm summers. Dunton is a year round destination – with June to August being its peak summer months. Colorado averages over 300 days of sunshine a year. June is however the best month weather wise with no rain expected. From the first week of July to the first week in August guests can expect short-sharp afternoon monsoon showers so activities like horseback riding are arranged for the morning.

From September onwards through to the start of November the weather is usually sunny and dry. In November, rain and then snow flurries begin. Riding, biking and fishing give way to winter sports like heli skiing, snow shoeing, dog sledging and skiing in world-renowned Telluride.

With the soaring peaks of the Rockies to one side and the pretty town of Telluride to the other, Dunton Town House is perfect as a base for Colorado mountain adventures. This beautiful B&B has just 5 rooms and acts as a wonderful home away from home.

Dunton Town House is a beguiling Bed & Breakfast in the tiny Colorado town of Telluride, just moments from the slopes of the Rocky Mountains. This lovingly restored Victorian building exudes charm and accommodates a maximum of ten guests, ensuring a friendly and intimate atmosphere.

Each of the five rooms has its own unique character, completed with cosy furnishings and custom made wooden furniture. Plush rugs, cushions and bedding add to the warm feeling and despite the property being small, all of the bedrooms are spacious. One bedroom has its own separate entrance for ultimate privacy while another has the option to be converted to twin beds to accommodate families.

A daily breakfast is served in the small dining area, created in partnership with a local bakery guaranteeing a fresh and delicious meal! Main Street is a short walk from Dunton Town House and so the many restaurants and bars of Telluride are within very easy reach. A few steps in the opposite direction will bring you to the gondola, which offers free access to the neighbouring mountains in summer and access to the slopes in winter. Spend days trekking, cycling, fly-fishing nearby or even enjoying via ferrata adventures for an extra thrill!

Dunton Townhouse has an enviable position right in the heart of thee Telluride action. A beautiful property in a residential road yet just a minute's walk from the main street in one direction and the gondola up to mountain in the other.  This is no 5 star hotel with every amenity under the sun, instead this is like walking into your own mountain home, cosy and inviting after a day enjoying the mountain activities of the area.  Whether you are staying in winter or summer, this is a great base for adventurous days.  Retreat back to your comfortable bedroom, the cosy lounge or in the winter, a hot tub out the back.  It's all about low key living here in a wonderfully central location.  When I visited in September 2017, there is some construction going on at the back of the property.  This is ongoing at the moment and may cause some noise impact during the day Monday to Friday.  Please do ask for the latest status on this.
