We spent a wonderful three nights at the Inn for our wedding anniversary. Our suite was the Lakeview Suite and it couldn't have been nicer. It is beautifully appointed with a great attention to detail. We loved the big, comfy, four-poster bed, spacious sitting area with fireplace, nice modern bathroom with double sinks and jacuzzi tub and the deck with... More

I’ve been to many B&Bs in my life. Even though I can’t remember having a HORRIBLE time at one . . I honestly can’t remember most of them at all! That will NEVER be the case with ANYONE who stays at the Inn at Fawnskin. You get the best of everything necessary for an overnight stay . . .but its... More

Sometimes you run into people that simply make you feel good and appreciate little things in life. Bill and Nancy, owners of the Inn at Fawnskin, are two of those people. Not only the place is beautiful and located in a fantastic place, but Bill and Nancy's hospitality is amazing. They treated us as family, told us great stories, and... More

...the noise upstairs above the Garden Room. We so enjoy the room's access to the gorgeous garden, the spaciousness, the good lighting, and the comfy bed and chairs, but when someone is upstairs, even trying to be quiet, it comes right through the ceiling of this log cabin. So choose your room carefully. Otherwise, you can't go wrong!

Dear Diana, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with other travelers! We are sorry you experienced a problem with noise above you.....B&B's are often converted homes, and even though the rooms above you have carpeting, they are not insulated like hotels with concrete between the floors! We hope to see you and John again next summer... More

Our stay in Big Bear was amazing thanks to Nancy and Bill. They were super welcoming and friendly. Nancy gave us some suggestions on places to visit and cooked up an exquisite breakfast! Try the oatmeal cookies too!! We stayed in the Garden Suite which has the two person jacuzzi tub. Definitely worth it to unwind after a day out... More

Beautiful setting. Walking/hiking trails nearby. Big Bear across the lake, easy access. B&B owners treat you like family. Bill & Nancy can give you info about most anything going on in the area. Beau is a super happy/friendly furry meeter/greeter. Breakfast is an epicurean delight every time.

We recently stayed 3 nights at the Inn at Fawnskin and couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay while visiting Big Bear Lake.

As others have said, this inn is charming and the innkeepers, Nancy and Bill, are as charming as can be. But it is the breakfast that is unforgettable! Nancy takes great care and loves finding new recipes. She is a wonderful and inventive cook! This was my second visit in 4 years and was even more pleased than last time.

We were only at The Inn At Fawnskin for two nights, but they were lovely. The first impression of the Inn was pleasant, with it being in the best tradition of mountain cabin architecture, and well maintained.
