Honestly, I didn't think a place this nice existed in Big Bear! Our little family of three went up for a weekend in the snow and ended up at Alpenhorn. Well, we felt at home immediately! Johann and Evelyn are amazing hosts—almost as good as coming home to mom and dad. They are fabulous cooks—for dinner and breakfast. They cure...

I've traveled to many places but non compared to the hospitality, food, and family feeling that was a natural connection to the owners of the Alpenhorn Bed & Breakfast In! They made you feel like you were just visiting family. The food was so delicious! My husband, who's had 2 back surgeries just had to know what brand/type of mattress...

We had our company holiday party/weekend getaway here and everything about Alpenhorn Bend & Breakfast was wonderful! Johan and Evelyn are such amazing hosts, the food was better then most restaurants, our room was beautiful and cozy in the cold winter weather with a nice fireplace, homemade bath salts and balcony looking out to the backyard. The atmosphere was fun,...

We stayed at Aplenhorn for as a holiday party with coworkers. Johan and Evelyn were very accommodating, sweet, kind and friendly the entire weekend. The living room was a great place for everyone to meet, hang out, chat, play with the kids and was warm and welcoming. A great place to stay with a larger group of people where we...

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....

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...
