The Hand Hotel Bed and Breakfast offers genuine western hospitality, high in the heart of the Colorado mountains. Located in Fairplay, Colorado, the Hand Hotel is surrounded by the quiet beauty of the Rocky Mountains and overlooks the Middle Fork of the South Platte River. Each of our eleven rooms carries a distinct personality, reminiscent of the people who settled in South Park and the Fairplay area. You may choose from any of the available rooms during your stay, each having its own private bath. Click on the room name to see a photo of the room.
