Karen Blixen’s Cottage

The Alpenhorn Bed & Breakfast Inn has a distinct Alpine Northern European flavor that has been augmented with an African influence. We felt it appropriate to rename the cottage to the Karen Blixen’s cottage in honor of the Danish trailblazing female writer who recounted her life in Kenya in the book Out of Africa and who penned Babette’s Feast, the inspiration for the food offering at the Alpenhorn Bed & Breakfast Inn. Enjoy the wonderful atmosphere of Big Bear, CA from the privacy of your own cozy cottage here at the Alpenhorn. With one bedroom (two queen sized beds), and one bath, this romantic cottage will sleep 2 - 6 guests (pullout couch in the living room), perfect for a romantic weekend or a small family vacation. After a day on the lake, cuddle in the glow of your wood burning fireplace or relax in the whirlpool tub. As just one more activity to enjoy together, prepare a meal as gourmet as you please in your very own full kitchen.

Amenities include private bath with separate 8-jet whirlpool tub for two, flat screen and DVD, a fully stocked Keurig Coffee maker in the room, hair dryer, lighted make-up mirror, luxury toiletries and spa robes. Enjoy the 600 thread count 100% Pima-Cotton wrinkle free sheets with sateen weave mentioned in the New York Times; superior 900 GSM (grams per square meter) 100% Egyptian cotton towels, DirecTV HD Entertainment package, HBO, Cinemax, Fox Soccer Plus, Travel Channel, MLB, NFL and NBA networks, Turner Movie Classics and the Sonic Tap Music channels. For an extra charge, enjoy a relaxing massage by the Inn's therapist in the room.
