Comfortable and plush cabin style, decorated with the luxuries of modern living that offer a welcoming and cozy home feel. I felt like I was home away from home. The bed was pillow-top soft and the bedroom has a fireplace. There is a jacuzzi style bathtub with lavender bath salts to soothe your mind and soul. The gourmet breakfast is light yet filling enough to take on any hike of the day! The overall experience was so wonderfully unique and special! I highly recommend for a simple yet luxurious get away for 2.

As a former BBL Resident and BBHS '81 Alumni, I can't even begin to Express the Amazing Hospitality, Immaculate attention to detail and cleanliness, the Breakfasts of fresh squeezed orange juice, hotcakes and muffins made with ancient grains with fresh berries, the delicious yogurt, the fresh ground Ethiopian coffee with real cream, the marinated pan seared shrimp and gourmet wines and those "to die for" homemade chocolate chip cookies... plus the relaxing garden and bubbling brook, added to an amazing 3 day weekend of relaxation and renewal. Sandee and I will definitely be coming back to Johanne's Alpenhorn B&B and visiting our new extended family!

Breakfast was amazing. The smell of bacon woke me up. Spent a few hours on the chair hammock in the back yard. Met their dog Rosie. I can’t wait to come back. I’m more relaxed now than I’ve been in a long time. It’s very quiet and peaceful here.

My husband and I keeps coming back!!!! There is no other place like the Alpenhorn Inn with Johann and Evelyn ! You are treated like family, and so pampered. The individual rooms has different design and décor, just take your pick. Evelyns décor and feminine touches are superb, and she makes the best cookies. Johann and his Western Africa cuisine is amazing, using all ancient grains in his scones, bread and unbelievable light and fluffy pancakes, I can go on and on, but better yet, just go and find out for yourself.

My family and I had an amazing stay here. The location is close to the local shops and restaurants. The owners Johann and Evelyn were both welcoming and provided excellent hospitality. The provided breakfast was more than I was expecting. Best breakfast ever! I only wish we made it for the appetizers the night before. We plan on staying here in our future visits.

Fabulous bed, linens and towels! Bed was comfortable as was the room (snowbell). Very clean! Even service was cleaning while I was at breakfast! Food is superb, A+ rating. Morning coffee, fresh orange juice, scone and oatmeal with fresh fruit followed with fluffy eggs, bacon and tomatoes! I was full for 5 hours, had a large lunch on the ski slopes and came back to wine and hourdorves at 5:30, which is really a mini meal! You never need to leave for a meal, and why would you when the food is so stellar. Obviously, not purchasing breakfast and dinner is a cost savings as well! Plus, fabulous conversation with other guests, can't beat it. Thank you Johann and Evelyn. We will be back.

This was our first B&B experience and we are so happy with the accommodations, location and the very friendly hosts, Johan and Evelyn. Johan is a top notch chef with his charming South African personality. We were so spoiled being served breakfast each morning and Johan explaining in detail the ingredients and how it was prepared. I highly recommend this place to anyone, wewe’ll worth the the cost of the room!

A wonderful stay, made even more magically by the incredible host welcome. If you are on the fence- just book. The food is glorious, the location central and the little added extras (wine, bath salts, nibbles) make the stay a no brainer. The open fire, jacuzzi bath and comfy bed make this a beautiful place for relaxing. We will be back... next time we are hiring the whole place for a foodie family, relaxing get away. Ps They serve the best local morning coffee in town.

My wife and I took our son and daughter in law to dinner tonight. Johann is the best chef in Big Bear! Shrimp appetizer w/ raspberry Chipotle sauce, scallops w/ a delicious puree, chateubriane, and the most amazing breed pudding I've ever eaten. If you are in Big Bear on a night when Johann is cooking, you must go for dinner. You will not be disappointed.

You walk through the door and instantly start to relax! From the fluffy bath towels and crips white bed sheets to the delicious farmers market fresh food, it is amazing. The grounds are beautiful to explore and the happy hour (included in the price) is delicious and fresh and the wine is smooth and from far away vineyards like South Africa. I can only really describe it as magical.

Second time here. This time my wife and I came specifically for the Saturday dinner offering. 3 courses each with wine pairing. ABSOLUTELY worth the money and the experience. We have decided to work our way through by staying in a different room each time as each has it's own charm. And why leave to go out to eat in traffic for the same or more expense for inferior meal? Our main course was prime rib, if that helps the questions about the meal quality itself. There are offerings for other eating habits upon request. Everything has its own unique twist. There's even a story behind the wine choices. Appetizers, salad, main dish, dessert, wine pairings for each.... yeah, we were glad we had a room for the night. What are you waiting for? Read the other reviews and get your calendar out....

As you step into the Aplenhorn Bed & Breakfast Inn, you are transported into what feels like a charming destination in Europe surrounded by chirping birds and bustling pine trees. Whether you are looking to slow down and rejuvenate or enjoy all the outdoor adventures and activities in the area, this is the Southern California mountain destination for you for any season of the year. Each room boasts the most plush and luxury beds with the finest linens and comforters, luxury toiletries, homemade bath salts and fluffy Egyptian cotton towels. The large and deep jacuzzi tubs and fireplaces make for the perfect way to unwind after a long day of exploration. During my stay at the Aplenhorn, I had the pleasure of staying in the Edelweiss room and Primrose room, both lovely, inviting, charming and so relaxing. The views from the balconies were my favorite place to start my day, being at one with nature, while the sweet aroma of homemade breakfast crept it's way into the room and made me instantly hungry for the incredible culinary creations from innkeeper, Johann. A full gourmet breakfast is made and served every morning by Johann that is not only delicious, but inventive, fresh, surprising and homemade, right down to the freshly baked scones. Over breakfast, which consisted of overnight oats, yogurt and fruit, ghost chile bacon, mushroom omelet, homemade blackberry orange scone, Ethiopian coffee and cold-pressed orange juice, Johann and Evelyn, give the best recommendations for the day ahead, depending on what kinds of activities you're feeling up for. Per their recommendation, I ventured off to Castle Rock Trail that took me on a strenuous 2.5 miles up the mountain to some breathtaking views of the lake and trees followed by a great lunch in town. After a day of adventuring, I took advantage of one of my favorite parts of the Alpenhorn, the jacuzzi tub. Innkeeper, Evelyn, makes homemade lavender bath salts for each guest's stay putting that extra special touch into everything the Alpenhorn stands for. Every evening, gourmet hors d'oeuvres and libations are served over delightful conversation with other guests and the innkeepers, swapping stories of the days' adventures and Johann's South African roots. If you're lucky enough to stay at the Alpenhorn B&B during a Thursday or Saturday, which you absolutely and definitely should, Johann creates a three course, five star, gourmet dinner served with three wine pairings for a mere $35. When I say this is the most delicious food I've ever had, I'm not joking. So fresh and flat out incredible. The menu changes every dinner and is always inventive. Following hors d'oeuvres, the first course, a butternut squash soup with homemade ancient grain bread paired with a South African Indaba Chenin Blanc was served. The main course was then served, a roasted lamb with mint jelly, roasted asparagus and twice baked potatoes, paired with a South African Glenelly Cabarnet Sauvignon. Finally came the dessert course, a Baked Malva Pudding with cream and ice cream, the most popular South African baked dessert, paired with a Frisk Prickly Riesling from Austrailia. Needless to say, I went to bed a very happy camper that night. And to top it off, I was so fortunate to have met some great new people and locals at the Alpenhorn. This was my first time staying at a bed and breakfast and it has truly set the bar extremely high for any of my future travels. There's something so unique and intimate about a stay at the Alpenhorn Bed and Breakfast Inn and I will come back often to visit. It quickly felt like home with what came to feel like family. It was such a special experience and made to be to be shared with others. If you’re traveling to Southern California, the Alpenhorn Bed & Breakfast Inn is a magical 5-star experience in the heart of Big Bear that you will not want to miss! A stay here will make your trip to the mountains that much more enjoyable and relaxing while also being able to experience the unique culinary delights the amazing innkeepers have to offer!

We love the Alpenhorn B&B. We loved Linda the last owner, and now love Johann and Evelyn. Rooms are beautiful, big comfy beds, fireplace and jacuzzi tub. Some have balconies overlooking a beautiful tree filled garden, complete with running stream. Breakfast is incredible - woke to the smell of bacon and coffee from Ethiopia that was out of this world! Their homemade granola, yogurt parfae was delightful! Dont even get me started ob the scones! Appetizers at 5pm are amazing. Even in the colder weather you can sit outside with heat lamps, meet new people, including the wonderful and talented owners from South Africa.

This is a one of a kind place. My fiancé and I spent three wonderful days with bed and breakfast. We had some snow/car issues, that gave us an extended stay. The innkeepers are some of the kindest, honest, ethical people in the hospitality industry that I have meet. If you are looking for a place to get away and eat some amazing food let Johann and Evelyn complete your getaway. Other than that the place is supper clean, perfect location for snow summit, supper cozy, and comfortable. Couples get away five stars.

Just left the Alpenhorn and am already dreaming of when we can visit again! This is the most charming B&B you will find. The owners are kind and welcoming and it's easy to feel at home. We stayed in the cottage off of the main house and it was perfect since we brought our two little children. Very private and comfortable. Breakfast was a dream sitting fireside, drinking fresh squeezed OJ and eating delicious food. This is a must stay in Big Bear! Cannot wait to book again!

Comfortable and plush cabin style, decorated with the luxuries of modern living that offer a welcoming and cozy home feel. I felt like I was home away from home. The bed was pillow-top soft and the bedroom has a fireplace. There is a jacuzzi style bathtub with lavender bath salts to soothe your mind and soul. The gourmet breakfast is light yet filling enough to take on any hike of the day! The overall experience was so wonderfully unique and special! I highly recommend for a simple yet luxurious get away for 2.

As a former BBL Resident and BBHS '81 Alumni, I can't even begin to Express the Amazing Hospitality, Immaculate attention to detail and cleanliness, the Breakfasts of fresh squeezed orange juice, hotcakes and muffins made with ancient grains with fresh berries, the delicious yogurt, the fresh ground Ethiopian coffee with real cream, the marinated pan seared shrimp and gourmet wines and those "to die for" homemade chocolate chip cookies... plus the relaxing garden and bubbling brook, added to an amazing 3 day weekend of relaxation and renewal. Sandee and I will definitely be coming back to Johanne's Alpenhorn B&B and visiting our new extended family!

Breakfast was amazing. The smell of bacon woke me up. Spent a few hours on the chair hammock in the back yard. Met their dog Rosie. I can’t wait to come back. I’m more relaxed now than I’ve been in a long time. It’s very quiet and peaceful here.

My husband and I keeps coming back!!!! There is no other place like the Alpenhorn Inn with Johann and Evelyn ! You are treated like family, and so pampered. The individual rooms has different design and décor, just take your pick. Evelyns décor and feminine touches are superb, and she makes the best cookies. Johann and his Western Africa cuisine is amazing, using all ancient grains in his scones, bread and unbelievable light and fluffy pancakes, I can go on and on, but better yet, just go and find out for yourself.

Fabulous bed, linens and towels! Bed was comfortable as was the room (snowbell). Very clean! Even service was cleaning while I was at breakfast! Food is superb, A+ rating. Morning coffee, fresh orange juice, scone and oatmeal with fresh fruit followed with fluffy eggs, bacon and tomatoes! I was full for 5 hours, had a large lunch on the ski slopes and came back to wine and hourdorves at 5:30, which is really a mini meal! You never need to leave for a meal, and why would you when the food is so stellar. Obviously, not purchasing breakfast and dinner is a cost savings as well! Plus, fabulous conversation with other guests, can't beat it. Thank you Johann and Evelyn. We will be back.

Johan is a top notch chef with his charming South African personality. We were so spoiled being served breakfast each morning and Johan explaining in detail the ingredients and how it was prepared. I highly recommend this place to anyone, wewe’ll worth the the cost of the room!

A wonderful stay, made even more magically by the incredible host welcome. If you are on the fence- just book. The food is glorious, the location central and the little added extras (wine, bath salts, nibbles) make the stay a no brainer. The open fire, jacuzzi bath and comfy bed make this a beautiful place for relaxing. We will be back... next time we are hiring the whole place for a foodie family, relaxing get away. Ps They serve the best local morning coffee in town.

Shrimp appetizer w/ raspberry Chipotle sauce, scallops w/ a delicious puree, chateubriane, and the most amazing breed pudding I've ever eaten. If you are in Big Bear on a night when Johann is cooking, you must go for dinner. You will not be disappointed.

You walk through the door and instantly start to relax! From the fluffy bath towels and crips white bed sheets to the delicious farmers market fresh food, it is amazing. The grounds are beautiful to explore and the happy hour (included in the price) is delicious and fresh and the wine is smooth and from far away vineyards like South Africa. I can only really describe it as magical.

Second time here. This time my wife and I came specifically for the Saturday dinner offering. 3 courses each with wine pairing. ABSOLUTELY worth the money and the experience. We have decided to work our way through by staying in a different room each time as each has it's own charm. And why leave to go out to eat in traffic for the same or more expense for inferior meal? Our main course was prime rib, if that helps the questions about the meal quality itself. There are offerings for other eating habits upon request. Everything has its own unique twist. There's even a story behind the wine choices. Appetizers, salad, main dish, dessert, wine pairings for each.... yeah, we were glad we had a room for the night. What are you waiting for? Read the other reviews and get your calendar out....

As you step into the Aplenhorn Bed & Breakfast Inn, you are transported into what feels like a charming destination in Europe surrounded by chirping birds and bustling pine trees. Whether you are looking to slow down and rejuvenate or enjoy all the outdoor adventures and activities in the area, this is the Southern California mountain destination for you for any season of the year. Each room boasts the most plush and luxury beds with the finest linens and comforters, luxury toiletries, homemade bath salts and fluffy Egyptian cotton towels. The large and deep jacuzzi tubs and fireplaces make for the perfect way to unwind after a long day of exploration. During my stay at the Aplenhorn, I had the pleasure of staying in the Edelweiss room and Primrose room, both lovely, inviting, charming and so relaxing. The views from the balconies were my favorite place to start my day, being at one with nature, while the sweet aroma of homemade breakfast crept it's way into the room and made me instantly hungry for the incredible culinary creations from innkeeper, Johann. A full gourmet breakfast is made and served every morning by Johann that is not only delicious, but inventive, fresh, surprising and homemade, right down to the freshly baked scones. Over breakfast, which consisted of overnight oats, yogurt and fruit, ghost chile bacon, mushroom omelet, homemade blackberry orange scone, Ethiopian coffee and cold-pressed orange juice, Johann and Evelyn, give the best recommendations for the day ahead, depending on what kinds of activities you're feeling up for. Per their recommendation, I ventured off to Castle Rock Trail that took me on a strenuous 2.5 miles up the mountain to some breathtaking views of the lake and trees followed by a great lunch in town. After a day of adventuring, I took advantage of one of my favorite parts of the Alpenhorn, the jacuzzi tub. Innkeeper, Evelyn, makes homemade lavender bath salts for each guest's stay putting that extra special touch into everything the Alpenhorn stands for. Every evening, gourmet hors d'oeuvres and libations are served over delightful conversation with other guests and the innkeepers, swapping stories of the days' adventures and Johann's South African roots. If you're lucky enough to stay at the Alpenhorn B&B during a Thursday or Saturday, which you absolutely and definitely should, Johann creates a three course, five star, gourmet dinner served with three wine pairings for a mere $35. When I say this is the most delicious food I've ever had, I'm not joking. So fresh and flat out incredible. The menu changes every dinner and is always inventive. Following hors d'oeuvres, the first course, a butternut squash soup with homemade ancient grain bread paired with a South African Indaba Chenin Blanc was served. The main course was then served, a roasted lamb with mint jelly, roasted asparagus and twice baked potatoes, paired with a South African Glenelly Cabarnet Sauvignon. Finally came the dessert course, a Baked Malva Pudding with cream and ice cream, the most popular South African baked dessert, paired with a Frisk Prickly Riesling from Austrailia. Needless to say, I went to bed a very happy camper that night. And to top it off, I was so fortunate to have met some great new people and locals at the Alpenhorn. This was my first time staying at a bed and breakfast and it has truly set the bar extremely high for any of my future travels. There's something so unique and intimate about a stay at the Alpenhorn Bed and Breakfast Inn and I will come back often to visit. It quickly felt like home with what came to feel like family. It was such a special experience and made to be to be shared with others. If you’re traveling to Southern California, the Alpenhorn Bed & Breakfast Inn is a magical 5-star experience in the heart of Big Bear that you will not want to miss! A stay here will make your trip to the mountains that much more enjoyable and relaxing while also being able to experience the unique culinary delights the amazing innkeepers have to offer!

We love the Alpenhorn B&B. We loved Linda the last owner, and now love Johann and Evelyn. Rooms are beautiful, big comfy beds, fireplace and jacuzzi tub. Some have balconies overlooking a beautiful tree filled garden, complete with running stream. Breakfast is incredible - woke to the smell of bacon and coffee from Ethiopia that was out of this world! Their homemade granola, yogurt parfae was delightful! Dont even get me started ob the scones! Appetizers at 5pm are amazing. Even in the colder weather you can sit outside with heat lamps, meet new people, including the wonderful and talented owners from South Africa.

This is a one of a kind place. My fiancé and I spent three wonderful days with bed and breakfast. We had some snow/car issues, that gave us an extended stay. The innkeepers are some of the kindest, honest, ethical people in the hospitality industry that I have meet. If you are looking for a place to get away and eat some amazing food let Johann and Evelyn complete your getaway. Other than that the place is supper clean, perfect location for snow summit, supper cozy, and comfortable. Couples get away five stars.

Just left the Alpenhorn and am already dreaming of when we can visit again! This is the most charming B&B you will find. The owners are kind and welcoming and it's easy to feel at home. We stayed in the cottage off of the main house and it was perfect since we brought our two little children. Very private and comfortable. Breakfast was a dream sitting fireside, drinking fresh squeezed OJ and eating delicious food. This is a must stay in Big Bear! Cannot wait to book again!

My room was very clean and comfortable. The location of Alpenhorn B&B is central and some restaurants are walking distance. I will be coming back next year for sure!

To say this place was amazing would be an understatement. We were honestly touched to experience such genuine hospitality. These guys really care & take a personal interest. Big Bear is a nice place to visit but if you want to make your time truly worthwhile, stay here. (Also their breakfast is hands down the best I've had!)

It's such a cozy and beautiful place to stay. The food is really good. My favorite hotel will always be the Alpenhorn. There's a little creek and swings and hammock around their landscape. I love their huge jacuzzi tub in the bathroom. The rooms are so classic 5 stars and super clean.

My husband and I had a lovely three night stay at the Alpenhorn over the 4th of July holiday. The new owners Johann and Evelyn could not have been more friendly and accommodating. The grounds are very nice, our room was perfect; spacious and clean. The breakfasts were delicious and abundant. If you are visiting Big Bear I highly recommend you stay at The Alpenhorn.
