Hi, Does anyone know of week-long spa retreats in the mountains but driving distance from Denver ? We are planning for a girl's week out in June.

Any recommendations ?

Do you mean something like Green Valley or Red Mountain in Utah, or Canyon Ranch in Tucson? The resort spas that come to mind are The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, the Ritz Carlton at Bachelor Gulch and Allegria Spa at Beaver Creek. I don't know if they have the week long programs though. Worth checking out. I've been to Allegria just for a day and loved it.

If you bleed money, there's Dunton, otherwise:

Colorado Spas & Spa Resorts | Colorado.com

and Chipeta Solar Springs Resort & Spa | Ridgway Colorado Resort & Spa | Ouray Hotel | Ridgway Lodge | Telluride Hotel

Wink Worth the drive

If in the mood for something of a drive, you may wish to visit the natural hot springs and spa at Ojo Caliente, NM (of the same name).

Not exactly in the mountains, but a beautiful location. One that offers several levels of accommodation, and at a price something quite nice in Southwestern theme, with your own private hot spring pool. There are a number of distinctly different pools on the premises open to the paying public and all registered guests, each fed with different types of natural hot water with different mineral content. There are also spa facilities offered.

Spend a week there, and you'll probably return to Denver all the more enchanted.

Yes, Ojo Caliente is WONDERFUL! And only @ 5.5 - 6 hours away. It's my favorite hot springs, so far!

For a rustic hot springs experience, give this place in Monroe-UT a whirl: Mystic Hot Springs. However it is quite a drive, probably 8 hrs from Denver straight out I-70.

MY favorite is Mt. Princeton Hot Springs in Nathrop about 8 miles into the Canyon from Buena Vista. Hildegarde gave me the best Rolfing there I have ever experienced ..

If you want to do the "girls week/end" thing, the spa at the Hyatt in Beaver Creek is probably what you are looking to do. There is also plenty of shopping and restaurants and other activities. It is the opposite of "rustic".

I read about Dunton in my Sunday paper here in eastern Mass., and was shocked at the prices. Chipeta is easily half that, although neither is anywhere near Denver.
