Fresh Gourmet Breakfast at Alpenhorn B&B

After a good night's rest in the clean, clear air of Big Bear Lake, wake to the smell of a delicious gourmet breakfast prepared just for you. The wonderful aroma gently coaxes you out of bed and as you turn back the soft covers and slide from your peaceful slumber, your mouth begins to water. Your stomach rumbles as the scent of hashbrowns and eggs, fresh seasonal fruit and our hearty homemade granola slowly waft under the door, promising an absolutely delightful transition into wakefulness. Grumpy and groggy mornings don't exist here. The classic Alpenhorn fare consists of a variety of soft, plump muffins, fresh seasonal fruit, our homemade granola, hot Oatmeal Banana Brulee, and a hot, sizzling dish such as quiche, pancakes and bacon, or cheese strata. To the side of your plate expect a selection of steaming Keurig coffee or hot tea.

Throughout the day we take care of you. Fresh baked cookies, lovingly prepared by your host, are available throughout the day. If your in-house during the day, late afternoon appetizers are available to whet your appetite before going out to dinner. We also provide later snacks during the evening to munch on while you relax by the fire and watch a movie.

Special Events and Weddings at the Alpenhorn Bed and Breakfast

He gazes into her beautiful eyes and grasps her hands tenderly. She gazes back steadily, feeling a wonderful mixture of contentedness and excitement. The Pastor begins to speak, at least his lips are moving, but they can hardly hear his words. Mutually lost in love, they are only aware of each other. Family and friends of both bride and groom watch on from the emerald lawn, some remembering their own wedding day, others made hopeful witnessing that sweet moment. The Pastor pronounces them husband and wife and with smiling faces they lean in and share that first married kiss. The towering pines look down wistfully as the clouds glide like white ships across the California sky.
