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.

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.

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!!

My husband and I stayed at Apples for 2 nights. Wish we had been able to stay longer. Barbara was very helpful to suggest places to eat and their locations. We had the most amazing breakfasts, which seriously exceeded our expectations. The rooms very very comfortable and clean, jacuzzi over sized. Barbara and her husband Jim have succeed in Bed and Breakfast hosting, They are very caring and considerate of their guest and their needs. Highly recommend. Alice & Steve Hannon

I went to Apples Bed and Breakfast for a personal retreat. Apples Bed and Breakfast provided the perfect venue for me to relax and recharge myself. The atmosphere was warm and cozy. All of the food that was served was delicious. The staff and other guests were very friendly.

This was our second visit to Apples B&B. Barbara and her staff have always been very accommodating and exceptionally nice. Barbara always asks about dietary restrictions and even planned desert one evening with my husband's favorite, Blackberry Cobbler! Her breakfasts are exceptional! I would recommend this one to anyone looking for a really nice get away in Big Bear, California.

Our recent stay there actually "met our expectations", but that's only because we've been there before and already know to expect "outstanding". The inn and room decor is so nicely done, so inviting and relaxing. A big communal "family room" with couches, board games, and relaxing music, and a peaceful relaxing garden. And did I mention this place is relaxing? That's already enough reason to stay there, but truly best thing about this place is the breakfast. The food is better than anything you can buy at any restaurant, and it's so filling we never had to eat lunch while staying there. We just had a little snack during the day and we were fine until dinner. And then we return to the inn and there's dessert waiting for us. The cost of the room may seem a bit pricy at first, but when you take into account breakfast, evening dessert, afternoon cheese and crackers (if you happen to be around in the afternoon, which we never were), coffee, tea, cider, soft drinks, movie "rentals", wifi, all included in the cost of the room, it's really a fantastic value. And on top of all that, the service is great and the owners and staff make you feel like family. This is truly one of my favorite places to stay anywhere.
