The Inn at Fawnskin
Ranked #1 of 2 Fawnskin B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 14, 2009

This was our second time renting this particular cabin but it had been many years since. And I'm glad I remembered it was a good choice. We were there at the last minute for our daughter's Softball Tournament and the cottage is operated by the Inn at Fawnskin. The Inn itself is a beautiful Inn at a great location in the great little town of Fawnskin. Although we did not stay at the actual Inn it is also as I remembered with a helpful and friendly staff who also gave us useful tips and some great restaurant recommendations.
The Bay view cottage is a nice little cabin that is well maintained, clean and quaint and a great value considering the prices in Big Bear vicinity are grossly over-priced. There is a nice children's park in that area and many good restaurants and shops. Fawnskin is a great location of Big Bear that is not overly crowded as is downtown Big Bear.
The cabin is not easily found if you don't know your way in the area but is non-the-less a convenient location for getting around most areas of the lake once you acquaint yourself. When you arrive in town you're given directions to the Inn at Fawnskin, that is where you'll get your keys to the cabin. When we stayed last many years ago our 3 children were very young and it was more than enough space. It's ideal for a small family or 3 adults, maybe even 4 adults but more than that would be pushing it. It is a good size cabin with 2 small bedrooms with 2 queen beds. Full kitchen, dining area and small living area with a nice wood fireplace and one small bathroom. It also offers a very large wrap around wood deck with a nice large hot tub with a view of the Bay. There is also a washer and dryer in the cabin as well.
It served our needs adequately and we've stayed at a few different places in the Big Bear area, from much larger and newer cabins to condos and small motels. I would not hesitate to stay here again or recommend to anyone looking for more space and charm and privacy than the various other places can offer.

We spent a lovely Christmas at The Inn at Fawnskin. Bill and Nancy (and Heidi) were wonderful hosts and accommodated us at the last minute. We stayed in the North View room which was warm and cozy. A delicious breakfast and warm homemade cookies greeted us each day. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a more "off the beaten path" experience of Big Bear Lake. The village was packed and it was a pleasure to return to the Inn each day!

The log home and cottage are nestled underneath the tall pine trees and surrounded by a beautiful green lawn. We could see the sun glimmer off of Big Bear Lake through the trees. We were warmly welcomed by owners, Bill and Nancy, and our room, the Garden Room, was very comfortable with a fireplace and a small deck for relaxation. Every room in the home was impeccably clean and the breakfast was delicious. We definitely will be back for a trip up the mountain to stay at the Inn!

we left it late to book a couple in nights in big bear - just before new years eve; however we found a gem.
this place was cosy but had lovely views accross the lake to the snow summit, was well equipped in all areas - bathroom, kitchen and all the beds were made too!
a nice touch was the book-case in the kitchen area with lots of interesting titles.
We would definately recommend this place to any-one.
