The mountain setting and the available activities make the Alpenhorn an ideal location for organized retreats. Here the success of the retreat is enhanced by a distraction-free environment, delicious breakfast, luxurious and comfortable lodging and high caliber meeting space with great areas for breakout sessions.

The facility is ideal for family, club, association and church group retreats of up to 40 participants. Depending on sleeping arrangements the Alpenhorn can accommodate between 8 and 20 participants. Additional sleeping accommodation is available at our neighbor's property.

The Alpenhorn is also the site for Dr. Evelyn de Villiersintensive couples retreats where couples can rejuvenate, restore, or repair their relationships based upon a combination of the Gottman method and a Gospel approach.

weddings at Alpenhorn Bed and Breakfast in Big Bear Lake, CA
The luxurious and romantic Alpenhorn Bed and Breakfast Inn is the perfect venue for a small and intimate wedding filled with beauty and romance. Big Bear Lake is one of the few southern California venues that enjoys all four seasons for the wedding of your dreams. Our Creekside grounds with its majestic pines and aspens offer a variety of beautiful ceremony locations.

The reception area has been permitted for 49 people that includes all participants in the wedding ceremony and reception.

We have 7 rooms in the main house that sleep 14 (a few rollaways are available to increase this number as well) and a cottage that could conceivably sleep 6 people. The accommodation for the entire facility (as we cannot have other guests while hosting a wedding)would be $3,500 for the two nights plus taxes. The accommodation would include two full gourmet breakfasts and two sessions of hors d’oeuvres and drinks for the guests staying at the Inn. The use of the grounds, tables etc., would add another $5,000.
You would be able to hire outside caterers as long as we approve them based upon licensing and insurance.  Until we have our beer & wine license it would be BYO and we would charge a corkage fee (for the glasses etc., of $10 per bottle).
