Nestled in the heart of the Rockies at 9,953 feet, just 10 miles from the center of Colorado, the Peaks Bed and Breakfast. is surrounded by spectacular 14,000-foot peaks in historic Fairplay. Enjoy postcard views of Mount Sherman and Horseshoe Bowl from your log cabin's cozy room or balcony.

Located directly across the street from charming South Park City, an authentic reconstruction of a Colorado mining town between the years of 1870 and 1900, the Peaks Bed and Breakfast offers three accommodation choices. One cabin room has a balcony and mountain view, another room has a master suite complete with a glamour bath and the third choice is an efficiency apartment which includes full kitchen and living room.

The Area

Step out your front door and back in time to an era that has stood still for over 100 years. South Park City offers 32 vintage buildings and more than 60,000 artifacts which bring to life the economic and social goings-on of a 19th century Colorado boom town. Log, batten, clapboard and stone buildings contain room settings and exhibit areas which feature that period's professions, trade and industries. Exhibits include equipment used in hydraulic, placer and hardrock mining.
