Alpenhorn Bed and Breakfast provided a memorable beginning to our California trip. There was a feeling of sincere passion from Johann and Evelyn in providing their guests with a relaxed and comfortable stay at their lovely B&B. My husband and I enjoyed the wine and hors d'oeuvres (creations that one needs to experience) in the evening from 5-630 pm. Johann...

I have been lucky enough to take part in the first two Dinners at the Alpenhorn Bed and Breakfast. Currently served on Saturday nights to guests of the B&B as well as locals and soon to be followed by Wednesday evenings as well. The evening starts with hors d' oeurves (these are not your tired old canapes) but Johann's creations...

After staying in Alpenhorn bed & breakfast Inn, i don't think I want to stay in any other places in Big Bear! After a hard day snowboarding on the slope, we checked in at the inn right before Johann started cooking delicious Hors d'oeuvres and serve with wine at 5pm. We loved talking to all the guests and hear all...

We stayed at the Alpenhorn this past weekend. This place is fantastic. Great breakfast and happy hour. Both Evelyn and Johann are terrific. Only recommendation is don't make dinner reservations before happy hour because the appetizers are so good and plentiful, you won't be hungry later!

Disappointed that our favorite B&B had no consecutive nights in one room for our travel plan, I Yelped BBL B&Bs and saw this one, though newer on Yelp, was already highly rated. The price was a little higher than our other but, as it was the weekend before Valentine's Day, not unreasonably so. Making reservations was easy on the website....

Johann and Evelyn run the inn and have a great place. Johann is from South Africa and his wife is from California and travelled all around the world. They are both so interesting to talk to if you enjoy food, wine, travel etc. They serve great morning breakfast and appetizers in the evening while you chat around the fireplace. It...

One of those properties you want to keep a secret because you want it to be available when you are ;) But Johann and Evelyn are such superior hosts, and the Inn is so wonderful, that I feel obliged to share and give them the Trip Advisor high 5. Delicious food, enlightening conversation, fun games & lots of snow. Great...

This was our first stay at the Alpenhorn, one of many to come. My husband and I have stayed at many B&Bs, this Inn is elegant, although very inviting with such a homey feel. Our room was the Alpenrose. The bed was super cozy and comfortable with awesome linens, we loved the jacuzzi tub and I have never experienced such...

My wife and I have been coming to Alpenhorn for a few years and have always enjoyed the grounds and attention to detail, so we were a little concerned when we heard there were new owners.
