I stayed here with a friend of mine for a quick one night visit to Big Bear. We absolutely loved everything about our stay. Johan and Evelyn are so wonderful. They are both very warm and kind people. The rooms were very good sized for a B and B. Ours had a fireplace and a balcony overlooking the big backyard.... More

In the past we had usually stayed further out of town when visiting Big Bear, but Alpenhorn's location is fantastic. It is in a beautiful quiet forested neighborhood that was peaceful at night, but within walking distance of Pine Knot village. Our room was lovely and tastefully decorated, and the great room and dining room of the inn had an... More

This is the first time we have visited Alpenhorn since Johann and Evelyn took over and our experience could not have been better. They are the consummate hosts and are available and willing to meet your every need/request. You feel welcome the minute you walk in the front door. The appetizers every evening and the breakfasts are beyond fabulous. Johann... More

This lovely B&B nestled in the quiet woods of Big Bear is amazing. My husband and I have visited many, many times over the past 30 years. It passed from the original owners Chuck and Robbie (who ran it like pros) to a young woman who just didn’t give it the time and energy it required to maintain the standard... More

Honestly, this is the absolute best bed and breakfast I have ever stayed in. My brother and I drove out to surprise my dad for his birthday (with the help of our mom). Johan and Evelyn (the owners) helped make it happen and it was PRICELESS. So, so cute. THEN, we enjoyed the best home made food ever, in the... More

When a Bed & Breakfast exceeds your expectations, you might not want to tell the whole world... This was so perfect, I just have to do it... It was absolutely charming! The ambiance, the location and the food were exquisite. Let's talk about the food, gourmet to say the least, and prepared with passion. The atmosphere was so serene and... More

We have been traveling for over 40 years and this has been one of the best B&Bs we have ever stayed at. This B&B was a great find for an unexpected trip to Big Bear CA. The new Innkeepers, Johann and Evelyn are great hosts and became the owners of this B&B a few months ago. Their care and dedication... More

What a truly wonderful find. My family decided at the last minute to stay overnight in Big Bear. The weather was gorgeous and the sights were unreal. My dad is going through chemo and we wanted a comfortable spot for him to rest up. This was a wonderful hidden gem!! We stayed in their newly refurbished cabin. And even though... More

The room was just what we wanted, and the hosts just amazing and friendly. The rooms are delightful, clean and offer access to a lovely wooded patio and large yard. The weather was such that we could sit outside with the aid of a large, warm heater and enjoy the wooded area, birds, and mountain air. The breakfasts were perfection... More

Very important to note: This B&B is under new ownership, and has improved tenfold!! The room was exceptional: Private, spacious quarters with a jacuzzi tub, fireplace, luxurious linens, personal coffee machine, robes, and thoughtful touches including water bottles, chocolates, and fresh flowers. What else can you ask for?? The cuisine was worth the visit alone. Truly 5 stars!!! Each morning... More
