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

Dear Jim & Barbara, My husband and I were nothing short of amazed after our one-night stay with you at Apples Inn! From check-in when Mr. Jim handed us delicious home baked cookies to our beautiful room (Mcintosh) to the super delishious breakfast you made and served to us in your huge, yet comfy, dining room to our check out time we were most happy, comfortable and content! Please believe us ... We will be back to visit you very soon!! We will also tell all of our friends an family what a lovely place Apples Inn is to stay and get away from the hustle and bustle of the very busy little town of Big Bear. Thank you for making us fell right at home! Mike & Stephanie Boudreaux

This was our first experience at a b & b and we enjoyed the location, room accommodations,dining & service. Would recommend to family & friends.

Beautiful little inn

4.0 on June 09, 2014

We stayed in May 2014. The rooms are small but cute, and the beds are very comfortable. There is a bit of traffic noise but not too bad. The inn is really cute and nicely decorated, and very comfortable for sitting. They leave out soda, water, coffee, tea, etc all the time. There is also cheese and cider in the afternoon, and dessert all night. And of course breakfast in the morning. All of the food, everything, is totally delicious. And the hosts are very pleasant people. I would definitely recommend Apples if you're staying in Big Bear.

Another great visit.

Fifth visit to Apples. Always enjoy this place. Decorated beautifully and the food is the best food of any B&B I have been to.!!!

From the moment we arrived we were showered with attention. No detail is overlooked at this wonderful B & B. We've stayed in lots of different B & Bs all over the world and Apples has the best food by far!! The rooms were so very comfortable! The only place we've ever slept on a more comfortable bed is at home. The bathrooms are a little dark, but they're clean and did not in any way detract from the experience. We were very, very satisfied and will definitely be back!!
