We stayed at the Inn for 2 nights, in two different rooms and they were both great. The Inn is a true log home, which we love these types of B&B's to stay. It is located across the road from the Lake and we had a lovely view of the it. Bill and Nancy were fantastic, very friendly and knowledgable of the area since it was our first trip to Big Bear. The Lakeview Suite was the room we had the first night, lovely and cozy. The next night we stayed in the North Shore Suite, a real gem. Actually is 3 rooms, bedroom, living room and bath room. Love the decor and the beds were comfy. The breakfasts were amazing, the Light As Air pancakes and Cowboy Bacon, unbelievable!!! Fresh squeezed juice, scones, coffee and fruit, all were delicious. I know we will stay here again on the future trip to Big Bear. This is a true quaint place to stay, I highly recommend it.

Room Tip: All rooms are great, lovely place.

Thank you so much for your kind words! It was so nice of you and Dan to move rooms, since all the others were taken, but as you said, you got to experience two different rooms too! We appreciate your taking the time to write a review, and look forward to seeing you in the future!

This was our first experience at a B&B - what took us so long!!! The Inn at Fawnskin was exquisite. The treatment offered by our hosts, Nancy and Bill made us feel more like family rather than customers. Our room, the Lakeside, was so cozy and comfortable; the addition of daily fresh flowers was such a nice touch. The breakfasts we were served were over the top. Nancy's cullinary skills are beyond reproach, and Bill's speciality brewed teas and fresh squeezed orange juice cannot be beat. What a delightful way to start the day. We will definitely recommend the Inn at Fawnskin and we certainly plan to return. Our stay was for 3 nights - which I believe was just a perfect amount of time to relax and enjoy our 41st anniversary and to be able to appreciate all the offerings The Inn at Fawnskin had to offer.

Room Tip: The Lakeside room had a nice sitting area with a sofa, along with a small refrigerator, and a balcony.

My wife and I stayed here for a sort of anniversary gift to ourselves. We have stayed in B&B's in many countries over the years and enjoy the pleasure of more intimate contact with the people living there.

Nancy and Bill are the perfect hosts; delightful, knowledgeable, intelligent and attentive to ones every need.

The breakfasts they prepare are nothing short of outstanding.

Located in Fawnskin,on the opposite side of the lake, it is much quieter yet only minutes from the hub of the more commercial side.

No wonder current and historic entertainment figures have chosen to live here. Gable and Bogart among others had homes just up the street.

You will most certainly be happy you chose to stay here!

Stayed May 2013, traveled as a couple

Room Tip: All rooms are unique but excellent.

We were very happy to spent the past weekend at the Inn celebrating our 19th Anniversary with Nancy and Bill. They are gracious and wonderful hosts who are a pleasure to stay with. We stayed in the Lakeview suite and it was just as we hoped it would be, quiet and relaxing. We spent time soaking in the spa tub, relaxing in cozy robes and even enjoys a fire our last night. The breakfast both days was amazing to say the very least. If you have the chance this is certainly a must stay type of place. Quaint and cozy and very much personal. Thanks again for an amazing weekend and our super cute anniversary present.

Bill and Nancy, hosts at the Inn, expertly lead breakfast conversations and introduce guests to events taking place around Big Bear Lake. If you want to add a social element to your stay, choose this inn. The setting is peaceful and the rooms very comfortable.
