Quail Cove Lakeside Lodge
Reviewed December 30, 2011

These cabins right on the lake were a great find for our winter snow adventure!!! We planned this trip with 2 other families and it was perfect to be able to get together for meals and activities and then have our own space for quiet time. We had planned on cooking all of our meals and were happy to have a stocked kitchen available. My only complaint was that the "stocked" kitchen wasn't as stocked as I would expect. (this is the reason for my 4 stars, otherwise it would have been 5) They provide the BASICS, so be prepared to bring anything you will for sure need to cook and couldn't do without. Our kitchen didn't have a cutting board or a spatula for flipping pancakes. My sister's cabin didn't have a measuring cup. The nice thing is that the owners live on-site and they were able to loan us what we needed. You'll need to bring your own paper towels, napkins, foil, plastic wrap, etc. If you forget anything there is a small market in town just a short walk up the road. The cabins look and feel as though they were just updated and improved. The cabin had lots of new features and was VERY CLEAN. The owners seem like they really care and had Christmas decorations in the cabin and a bowl of candy canes on the coffee table for the kids, what a nice touch. If you come in winter, there is an awesome sledding hill within walking distance from the cabin right behind the Post Office. Our kids also enjoyed feeding the ducks in the stream right behind the cabin. We will be back!!!

Room Tip: Cabin #5 is the largest cabin and our family of 4 was very comfortable.

i love this place and i cannot wait to come back. the rooms are very very clean. the stone fireplace really makes it cozy. the managers were amazing. they sell firewood for $4.00 very close to snow valley (the very small mountain) like 10-15 minutes away. the resturants were so good in fawskin. i like it better than big bear city which has so many people. this is truely a hidden gem. i went with my mom and little sister and had the best time. so much so i booked the same cabin for our return trip a month later.

Room Tip: there is only 6 cabins. anyone is good. we had #3

We just came back from a wonderful visit at Quail Cove Lodge!
The location is excellent - beautiful views from the windows and right next to a creek.
The cabins were very clean and comfortable. Many of the finishes looked new, but some of the furniture was a little worn (i.e., knobs loose and cracks on the dresser). The kitchen had the basic tools, but you should remember to bring paper towels, plastic wrap and tin foil. The owners left a very thoughtful assortment of toiletries and snacks in the rooms. Also, they lent us an inflatable tube for sledding.

We would definitely come back.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for a weekend in cabin #1. Very clean, cozy and functional. Location was great, the quaint quiet lake seemed to be within spitting distance. This was my first time staying in Fawnskin (I usually stay in Big Bear), and I do not feel the need to go back to the other side of the lake. Great rates and friendly people. I STRONGLY RECOMMEND THIS PLACE.

I have had the privilege of staying in many 5 star hotels through the years, and I am happy to say that our stay at Quail Cove Lakeside Lodge in Fawnskin (Big Bear Lake area) was a wonderful 5 Star experience. Very peaceful and relaxing, the grounds and cabins are clean and very comfortable. Quail Cove Lodge shows a pride of ownership; the owners Craig & Grace who live on the property are pleasant people and aim to please. They have recently refurbished the cabins and the prices are more than reasonable.

Did I mention how clean they are and supply everything you need?

We stayed in the Quail Cove Cabin #1 and #3. The service from the owners who live on the premises was amazing - we loved the place: clean, all amenities included, free wi-fi, big fridge, bathtub, etc. They even allowed us to leave our car parked on premises after we checked-out because we still wanted to explore the lake.
I am deducting 1 star because we booked the place through one of the services that represent Big Bear properties. They charged us 35% more when compared to the Quail Cove rates, and charged the owners a listing fee decreasing the amount they would get if we paid in full directly to the lodge.
So, if you want to stay here - and you should, it is a very nice place - go directly to the Quail Cove website: http://quailcovelodge.com/index.html.

My husband and I stayed at Quail Cove with our two small children last weekend and had an amazing time. Everything inside the cabin was brand new and spotless. The cabin was decorated so cute with great attention to detail. The lode is located right on the lake and walking distance to a cute little town. Our family drove a mile down the road to rent a canoe and we rowed right up behind our cabin! The cabin had a full kitchen and we were even able to cook our own breakfast in the morning. The owners live onsite and were no nice and friendly. I highly recommend Quail Cove Lodge.
