The Soak: Yee-haw! This impeccably restored ghost
town, located at 8,600 feet in the San Juan Mountains near Telluride, offers
six ways to soak in waters ranging from 85°F–106°F and rich in
calcium-bicarbonate, iron, and manganese with a pinch of lithium. The most
authentic (and hottest) is under the stars at the source; the most private is
the king-bedded Well House cabin for two.

The Scene: Twelve hand-hewn cabins, built by gold
miners in the 1800s and given a five-star facelift, bunk up to 42 people.
Social hubs are the Saloon (serving organic local cuisine) and the Bath House
(with two geothermal pools).

When to Go: Year-round.
