Ellen's classic bed & breakfast is delightful. Beyond clean and comfortable, the personal touches and breakfast provided are so lovely. Tucked into a cute neighborhood close to the shops and galleries. Would definitely recommend.

Her house is so cute! I loved the fun bright colors and the gardens. She left homemade cookies on the bed which was super sweet, made us the best breakfast, and was a super friendly host! We will be back for sure!

Ellen is gracious and friendly. Her home is full of cherished mementos, of which she is happy to relate the stories. Cats are everywhere, which added to our joy. Alpine is a lovely little town, and worth the visit.
