Alpenhorn Bed and Breakfast Inn
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 July 2012

The Alpenhorn is a very quaint B&B with great service close to the Village (about 5 blocks). You are greeted warmly by the proprietor, Linda, when you arrive and shown your room and the property. The 5pm appetizers with wine were very nice. Linda made these delicious little puff pastries stuffed with feta cheese, along with fruits and vegetables, cheese and crackers.

The breakfasts were our favorite part. The first morning we were served warm vegetable and cheese quiche, along with granola, fresh fruit and steel cut oatmeal topped with caramelized bananas.

Our second morning we were treated to french toast with fresh berry syrup, thick slices of smoked bacon, granola, yogurt and fresh fruit.

The only slight downsides to this B&B were:

1) The bed in our columbine room was a little too hard for our taste
2) The first night we got in, we were under the impression that Linda had made us reservations at the Peppercorn, but for some reason they did not have our reservation so Linda booked at at the Evergreen instead, which turned out t be good.

Overall I would recommend this B&B for a nice romantic getaway.

The Alpenhorn is a friendly, clean, and comfortable place for your next trip to Big Bear. Linda is a welcoming innkeeper who, along with her helper, provides guests with truly fabulous breakfasts. The breakfasts consists of a variety of food------all tasty. In fact, she will accommodate any special diets guests need to adhere to while staying at the inn.
