Remember a time when you could go on vacation and really be on vacation -- with no phone calls, no emails, no Tweets, status updates, or pokes? No?

All our high-tech gadgets are wonderful but they often keep us tethered to the world when what we really want -- and need -- is a great escape.

Here are five properties that offer truly off-the-grid vacations without sacrificing comfort and style. So step away from the keyboard. Power down your phone. It's easy to #getunplugged.

Dunton Hot Springs is a small and exclusive resort nestled deep in the San Juan Mountains of the Colorado Rockies, near Telluride. This restored ghost town features original 19th-century hand-hewn log cabins that have been transformed into 12 luxury accommodations with unique artifacts and furnishings. Summer activities include fly fishing, hiking, mountaineering, mountain biking, rock climbing, rafting, photography classes and more. Prices include meals featuring local organic foods, with fine wines to match. Your cell phone most likely won't work, though there is wi-fi access in each room. The best way to avoid all outside communication? Get a massage and then soak in one of six natural hot springs under an edgeless sky.
