??A Mountain Hide-Away at 11,000 Feet

At 11,000 feet elevation, the Bear's Den is the highest bed and breakfast in North America and is a perfect escape from the stress of today's busy world. From the many decks, one can look across a beautiful tree-filled valley extending to the adjacent Continental Divide's many 14,000-foot peaks. The Bear's Den (21K)
The Bear's Den

Although no houses are visible from the Bear's Den decks, it is only a short 21-mile drive to Breckenridge and just six miles west of Fairplay. The bed & breakfast was specifically designed for people who want to "get away from everything" into a quiet, breath-taking setting while, at the same time, providing accessibility to some of Colorado's finest skiing resorts: Breckenridge, Copper Mountain, Keystone and Arapahoe Basin.

Breakfast may be served on the large deck or in the dining room and consists of a gourmet hot entree, such as Belgium waffles, French toast, pancakes, eggs benedict, eggs and ham or omelets, accompanied by home-made breads, muffins, yogurt, fruit, fresh ground coffee and juices.

If curling up with a good book sounds inviting to you, our library may be your special place. Furnished with large, comfortable chairs, the second-story loft library is a favorite spot with its many high windows which seem to beckon guests to enjoy the natural beauty surrounding this room. The Great Room (17K)
The Great Room

Our large recreation room is equipped with many activities which you may enjoy anytime, but particularly on a snowy day or evening. Available in the rec-room are:

The Bears Den Hot Tub (16K)
Relax in the hot tub
  • Satellite TV (many stations with no commercials)
  • Ping pong table
  • Board games
  • Exercise equipment
  • Microwave for popcorn, hot chocolate, tea or coffee
  • Refrigerator for cold drinks, etc.
  • Half bath

And for those days or evenings when nothing else will do, enjoy relaxing in our new hot tub.



Cross country skiing and snowshoeing are just out the back door of the Bear's Den in the wintertime. In addition to miles of terrain for those sports, the Frisco Nordic Center in Fairplay is only 6 miles away and offers groomed trails as well as rental equipment.

In the summer the mountains afford a natural beauty, unspoiled by civilization, for hiking and biking. One can often discover ruins of a log cabin or even small ghost town remnants.
