“Our Wonderful Wedding at The Inn at Fawnskin”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2014

August 24, 2013, we were married at the Inn At Fawnskin. It was the best!! Fun, wonderful wedding. All went smoothly and effortlessly thanks to proprietors Nancy & Bill.Their recommendations for our DJ, photographer, florist and bakery were spot on! We couldn't have been happier with all the details. The food at the wedding was delicious. Our guests ate and danced to their hearts content.

Our family stayed the weekend at the Inn. All loved their rooms and the delicious breakfasts Nancy made for us each morning. The Inn was such a comfortable place to be, not only for a wedding but for any get-away!

Thank you Nancy and Bill for making our wedding very very special! We couldn't have been more pleased!

We spent the Easter weekend at this beautiful place, located on the quiet side of Big Bear lake. Nancy and Bill were fabulous hosts who recommended great restaurants and hikes for our stay.

A very special treat was the delicious cooked breakfast, which comes as a surprise every morning. The Dutch pancake was my absolute favourite.

Owners Bill and Nancy always make us feel so welcome. Breakfasts are gourmet and the Inn is so cozy. We are going back this summer. We always get great tips on local activities and good places to eat.

We're two adults, and twins, aged 10.

We wanted a wintry, post-Christmas ski getaway. To be honest, from most of what I saw online, I was afraid the entire Big Bear area was a dump. A lot of inns, "resorts" and cabins that look like they haven't been updated in years.

We ended up booking at Fawnskin because it looked nice online. And, nothing online does this place justice, trust me.

We booked the "North Shore Suite" which had:

-A nice and cozy bathroom with fridge and most importantly, heat lamp.
-A cozy den for the girls with pullout queen couch, TV/DVD and old-fashioned wood-stove type heater
-A very cozy separate bedroom just across a private hallway for us with a Queen bed

This, in addition to the immaculate, warm, tasteful and comfortable common areas instantly made us feel at home. It's a luxurious log cabin home surrounded by nothing but trees, the lake, and silence. Our girls loved the gift shop, the fairy garden, the giant chair, and the house dog, Heidi.

We had no real intention of "the B&B experience" but that's just what we got, from hosts Nancy and Bill, and we delighted in it. The breakfasts are to die for, and start promptly at 9AM. Sitting at a communal dining room table, we had a very nice time sitting with the delightful and talented Nancy, and the dry, deadpan, warm gentleman that is her husband, Bill, who is there to serve and entertain and inform.

They made great recommendations (and reservations) for meals - Sweet Basil's and North Shore Cafe, and even shared a special apres-ski bottle of wine with us.

We feel like we just spent a couple days with relatives. I can't believe there are places like this 2 hours from LA. Unbelievable. Will return.

Room Tip: North Shore Suite for family of 4

This is a rustic log lodge that is beautifully decorated. Nancy and Bill are great hosts and you feel so relaxed and taken care. Breakfast is excellent and you can sit and talk for hours.The North Shore is so peaceful that we would stay here from now on. The little details were so nice. Fresh baked cookies,coffee and tea that you can make any time you want.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms have a fireplace!

This was the second time we've stayed at the inn and it was just as wonderful as the first. Nancy and Bill are wonderful hosts and the accommodations are very comfortable. We had the Garden Suite and, although it was a little to chilly to sit on our porch, we enjoyed out sitting area with the wood-burning stove. We will definitely be back!

Our stay At The Inn at Fawnskin, was wonderful. From the minute we arrived, Nancy and Bill, the hosts and owners of the Inn, made our stay so memorable. The Inn is a charming cabin, with 4 rooms. We stayed in the North Shore room, with a queen size bed, a view of the lake, a separate sitting room with couch, TV, and a little pot bellied type heater, that heats the area very well, and a large bathroom, bathtub/shower. All decorated very charmingly. Breakfast each morning was at the dining room table, where we met the other couples that were staying there. Nancy is a terrific baker/cook!! She even has a cookbook that is for sale, which I highly recommend. Every morning Nancy's husband Bill made sure we started our breakfast with fresh squeezed OJ, coffee, or tea, or his special blend of tea, which I had. I am a vegetarian, and Nancy made delicious breakfasts for me, there are 4 rooms at the Inn, all warm and inviting, Nancy & Bill made our stay so nice and look forward to going back !!
