Wonderful as always after 12 stays

4.8 on June 07, 2016

Can't say enough compliments after 12 different stays over the years. Everything was convenient, tasty, clean, & beautiful but the beds do need to be replaced. BUT that will never keep me from returning as I know the new owners will appreciate the heads up on this. New management is wonderful & making sure guests are taken care of. Can't wait to go back in a few months. I tell all our friends about Apples & to be sure to go there for a wonderful stay. You won't ever go hungry!

Great B&B

Lovely room. Very comfortable bed (lots of pillows:). Lots of heat and hot water. Gracious and friendly hosts. Very comfortable, large community room (we had fun). Delicious breakfast every morning (especially the scones!) - the only regret is that I wish they served breakfast and dinner too!

This was the first time my husband and I had stayed at a bed and breakfast and really enjoyed it. The staff was really personable and made you feel right at home. We are looking forward to coming back and picking a new apple room to stay in!

Lovely property and hosts

We stayed with our daughter during a weekend's skiing - very happy with the room - it was spacious with a good layout and large bathroom where every comfort necessity had been anticipated. The food station in the lounge was a lovely touch offering snacks during the day / night. We sadly didn't get to experience breakfast as it was only served from 9-10am and we needed to be at the slopes before then. I'm no doubt sure it would have been delicious however not practical for early morning risers. If I had any suggestion, it would be to leave a 'food to go' station so people that can't wait until 9am can take something simple to go and feel that they do get a portion of the 'breakfast' part of the room rate.

Great spot!

This place was great! They offered snacks and coffee and a whole array of movies to choose from. The only downside was that they don't serve the breakfast until 9am and for people who are skiing/snowboarding, that is too late because a lot of us like to be at the mountain when it opens so that was unfortunate.

Apples Bed & Breakfast is a great place in Big Bear to go and relax. The staff is wonderful, the rooms are clean, and the service is spectacular. You get early morning coffee, full course breakfast, snacks and movies all day, afternoon treats and evening desert. GREAT Bed & Breakfast!!! I highly recommend this place.

Excellent, Inviting and comfortable bnb.

We got recommended to Apples from a friend who formally lived in the area and they had rooms for us last minute so we arrived around 7pm after a long day of snow play with the kids and checked in and met the very nice owner and got some home made desserts before bed.. The breakfast was awesome and I was full past lunch time after chasing the kids all morning at bear mountain but it starts at 9am and the mountain opens at 8am so by the time you get to the hill your stuck with the crowds. We had a excellent night sleep and will be going back soon. Thanks Dave
