We just finished our second stay with Annie and David, in their cozy inn. We plan to visit their inn every year! It is odd to find a "kid friendly" bed and breakfast, but the Alpenrose is just that. My children are so comfortable with Annie and David that they often wake up before us and head downstairs to chat with Anne while she is at work in the kitchen. Just this evening, my 4 1/2 year old son was on the phone with my mother and he said, "you should come skiing with us so that you can meet Annie. She is the nicest lady in the whole world and she'll make you whatever you want for breakfast." This past weekend we played our first game of family scrabble, sitting in front of the warm wood stove in one of the sitting rooms. It was heavenly.
The inn is clean, warm, and so very comfortable. You go to bed smelling the bread that will be on the table the next morning, and wake up to the smell of bacon and coffee. Anne is an exceptional cook. I have described the inn as kid-friendly, and it is, but at the same time it is totally quiet and peaceful. It is a sweet retreat. I would recommend this inn to anyone!.... ranging from a family with small children, to a family with teenage skiers, or to a couple seeking relaxation and excellent company. It's a gem.
