The Inn at Fawnskin is a nice quiet mountain get away. We only spent one night, but the location, near the lake, is perfect for relaxing. The property is big enough for guest's to sit outside, look at the lake, and enjoy the summer mountain weather. We had the smallest room at the Inn, but no matter, the Inn is beautifully decorated and our room was lovely and quiet. The attention to detail is evident from the toiletries in the bathroom (A cute little pot of lip balm, how thoughtful) to the books in the library to the delicious scones for breakfast. Nancy and Bill were gracious hosts. We will return.

This is THE place, if you're looking for EXCELLENT accommodations, and even better food.
The innkeepers Nancy and Bill are, without exception, the best hosts we've had the privilege of meeting.
The LakeView Suite - PRIMO. The upgraded bathroom with jacuzzi - to die for.
The room: very comfortable, with a lot of quaint charm. Excellent viewing point for Big Bear Lake.
We surely believe that the food we were served, is the best we've eaten, bar none.
Our stay, accompanied with great conversation, and tremendous food was the best point of being in Big Bear.
We loved the ambiance and were able to rest and relax, which was so needed after a family funeral just the week before.

Room Tip: LakeView Suite is the place to be.

I have been to the Inn at Fawnskin twice now and love it! It is a wonderful B & B on the Fawnskin side of Big Bear Lake. I like that side better because it is quieter and you can look across the lake to Big Bear City and the ski runs. Nancy and Bill are wonderful people and the breakfast and conversation each morning were amazing and a highlight. They also do weddings in the back of the house. This place is like the best family cabin in the woods! Our room didn't have TV, but there is a library of DVDs, so we watched one. Nancy made some good restaurant recommendations for us and then made reservations. The highlight was a new wine tasting room that had a jazz combo playing that night. We went and saw Bill and Nancy there and then the combo had Nancy get up a sing while they played. I hope to return to the Inn at Fawnskin again soon!

Dear Tracey,
Thank you so much for writing a review for us! It is so special when you take the time out of your busy schedule to let other guests know of your experiences. I am sorry you didn't have TV in your room....all the rooms do have basic cable tv, but it is possible someone left the DVD player on, in which case, your tv would have been "snow"! I'm sorry I didn't know about it, because I could have helped. Anyway, I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay, and we hope you'll visit us again!

My husband and I spent the July 4th weekend in Big Bear at the Inn at Fawnskin. Our room (Lakeview suite) was fabuous, super large with a king bed, large sitting area, fireplace and nice jacuzzi tub. Bill and Nancy are very warm and interesting people who take excellent care of their guests. Breakfast was wonderful and different every day and it was nice to meet the other guests and learn more about them, as well as about Nancy and Bill. They make you feel right at home. The grounds are lovely with great outdoor spots to relax and read. It is on the North shore, so not right in Big Bear village. But the drive only took a few minutes and it was actually a bit more peaceful than the hustle of the village. Good restaurants were recommended for dinner. I would highly recommend this property for couples, solos or even friends or small families. The Northshore quite is more like an apartment as it has a sitting room that is separate from the actual bedroom. The Garden Suite is lovely too, on the first floor, with a huge bath and lovely green garden views. A perfect rustic but luxurious southern California get away!

Room Tip: Any of the suites are very large.

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!
