We spent a couple of nights in Heidi's Cottage with the Alpenhorn Bed and Breakfast, where breakfast was not included, and that was O.K., as we found a couple of great restuarants nearby that served very sumptuous breakfasts. Heidi's Cottage is clean, a "little" "rustic", the bed is nice and comfortable, plus the bathroom has a really deep tub that... More

I'm not much for B & Bs, I like my privacy and four star hotels, but I got a great deal on this and we'd been waiting to come up to Big Bear.. So here we are. This place is spacious, clean, has one of the best beds ever, beautiful grounds, excellent location and yummy homemade breakfast. I highly recommend... More

This Bed & Breakfast felt like home. I wish we could have stayed there longer than just the weekend. Our room was very nice, comfortable bed. Beautiful huge, stone fireplace (gas) that was controlled by the room thermostat, so we were nice and toasty in the 26 degree nights. Very spacious bathroom. Everything clean, clean, clean! The food was excellent,... More

Celebrating our First Anniversary. The Rosebay room was lovely- beautiful view from the windows, cute little balcony to sip coffee, and a big jacuzzi tub to warm up in after a long walk on the lake. Breakfast is a wonderful surprise every morning and snacks everywhere! Thank you Alpenhorn for creating a memorable weekend <3

we booked this hotel because I wanted to be in a nice area and have breakfast. However the name of the hotel is tricky, not all the rooms are getting breakfast . That was very disappointing . Why to name b&b??? When we got there , our room was not clean yet. So we had to wait, but that was... More

We had a marvelous stay at the Alpenhorn Bed and Breakfast. The owners are so personable and quite generous. The room was perfect with the fireplace, Jacuzzi tub and outside deck. The evening reception included wine and beer plus substantial appetizers. We thoroughly enjoyed our travel conversations with them. The breakfast was special pecan French toast with home-made caramel sauce,... More

The gourmet breakfasts were so creative and delicious, we stayed for two nights and both were the best! This place is wonderful with so many things to do and see. Linda, our hostess, was warm and welcoming. She had freshly baked Russian tea cookies always ready. I had read about the nightly Hors d'oeuvres but wasn't expecting wine too. We... More

I have always been hesitant to try the whole B&B thing. My girlfriend had previously tried a few with mixed results. I found the Alpenhorn, by chance, on the internet and saw the photos and read that AAA had rated them 4 star many years in arrow. (I usually trust AAA ratings quite a bit.) We decided to give Alpenhorn... More
