I was quite surprised to read the initial review from a former patron regarding this hotel. Upon further examination of their assessment, however, it is clear that this castigating review was more personal than objective. I usually don't spend time reading and posting extensive online reviews, due to the aformentioned problem, but upon reading this harsh critique I felt obliged to offer a different, less emotional review.
I have stayed in the Hunt Placer Inn several times, and there are many compelling reasons to return to this quaint, mountain Inn. The Hunt Placer is a small(9 rooms), romantic Inn that has excellent individualized service and a tremendously convenient location(short walk) to both the town of Breckinridge and the ski area.
The Inn is also owned by two of the nicest people, Trip and Kelly Butler, that I have met since moving to Colorado 3 years ago. The managers were equally hospitable, very informative, and quite engaging. The managing couple were both well educated and well traveled, and they gave us several helpful tips regarding local restuarants, shopping, and mountain sports.
The breakfast at the Inn was fresh, innovative, and very good. You will find no beans on toast at this establishment! I have had five of the many breakfasts they serve, and each time the offerings were varied and creative, and the servings, especially the main course, were large. The configuration of the dining room also created an intimate setting conducive to meeting and visiting with other guests.
I would highly recommend this B&B as a destination for the long distance traveler, or for those looking for the perfect "getaway destination" that reside in the Denver/Colorado Springs Basin. It offers a true taste of a Colorado mountain town, and captures the spirit of the Western Bed and Breakfast experience.

My wife and I spend the week at this fabulous B&B just off Main Street and across the street from the ski bus that took less than 5 minutes to drop us off at the lift line.

Rooms very cozy and private with a nice breakfast served and is a great alternative to the condo route that always seems cramped and noisy.

Friendly staff/owner added to this exceptional ski vacation.

What looks romantic on the website is actually rather disappointing- overheated, inflexible, and with some of the most peculiar food and worst coffee (in the manner of these kinds of establishments, available only between about 7.45 and 8.30), we'd advise giving Hunt Placer Inn a wide berth. No sign of the mooted teatime wine and cheese, sausages with caramel sauce and creme caramel for breakfast (has a tendency to make you lurch down the slopes in nausea) and policies which, when we politely asked to leave after eight days for two days elsewhere saw us charged 100% for the two nights we didn't stay there. So insanely heated I wouldn't take a child there. Avoid.

Management response:Responded March 21, 2004

I am personally and professionally troubled by --- vindictive and mean-spirited review of our property. What started out as a dispute over our strict cancellation policy has turned in to an unfair and dishonorable attack of our livelihood. My wife and I have proudly operated the Hunt Placer Inn since 1999. We regard all our guests with kindness, courtesy and respect. We do not pretend to be in a league with the Ritz Carlton. We only hope to offer an intimate level of service, consideration and hospitality that will impress the discerning traveler. Our Inn has been validated by the Travel Channel, New York Newsday, the Denver Post and Colorado Expressions Magazine. We have earned superior ratings and acclaim from AAA, Mobile Travel, Luxury Link, the Bed & Breakfast Innkeepers of Colorado and the Breckenridge Resort Chamber. Most significantly, we can point to our great number of satisfied guests and repeat visitors. Our website offers an EXACT depiction of our character and amenities. Please do not hesitate to contact us directly if we may address your individual concerns regarding our menu, thermostats or cancellation policy.
