Switzerland Haus Bed & Breakfast Inn
A Bavarian-style bed-and-breakfast with Snow Summit Mountain Resort in its back yard.
Boasting an elevation of 6,478 feet, this bed-and-breakfast inn provides a serene alpine escape, adjacent to Snow Summit Ski Resort. It offers free parking, discounted lift tickets and ski and snowboard rentals, which allow guests to simply walk out the back door and immediately hit the slopes. Guests who stay here during warmer months can enjoy a variety of activities, as well: namely, hiking the San Bernardino Mountains and fishing in Big Bear Lake. Switzerland Haus has five guest rooms, all of which come with TVs with VCRs and beautiful garden, ski resort or mountain views. Some also include refrigerators, microwaves and two-person tubs, and most have a king- or queen-size bed (one room has a double). On the second floor deck, there’s a Nordic Sauna and a view of the property’s springtime Flower Garden. Each morning the innkeepers serve a deluxe gourmet breakfast that includes tasty items such as Apple Puff Pancakes and Mexican Brunch Pie.
