A perfect getaway

My parents stayed here 2 years ago and recommended it to me. I've always wanted to stay in a log cabin type house/hotel/B&B. This place was perfect. What sold me was the jacuzzi tub, because I love to soak in a comfortable sized bathtub. Breakfast was fancy and savory. Nancy and Bill are super sweet, and their dog Beau is precious.

THe place is gorgeous, rustic, but classy and stylish. The hosts make you want to stay for longer, and so does the grounds, surrounding area and the room itself. Highly recommend.

Loved this Inn!

5 on January 20, 2018

My husband and I stayed at the Inn for 4 days with our 2 small children. We were very comfortable at the North Shore suite. It had a separate sitting room that was converted into a bedroom for our 2 girls. The beds were all comfortable. We loved coming home to the Inn, after a long fun day of playing outdoors. We enjoyed the bathroom with the jacuzzi, and all the little toiletries that were refreshed daily. Our rooms were cleaned daily as well. We appreciated the little things such as the carafe of water provided daily, the spa toiletries, the chocolates. Our girls loved playing with Beau, and loved interacting with Nancy and Bill. The breakfast was very very good, especially the baked peach and apple. Loved their coffee and melt-in-your-mouth pancakes!

Innkeeper Response
It was so lovely having you and your family stay with us! Thank you for taking the time to write a review for us, and sharing your experience with other travelers. Beau misses the girls! Hope to see you again one day...

Relaxing and Memorable Stay for the whole family

5 on January 11, 2018

My husband and I made reservation for The Inn at Fawnskin the morning of the day of our stay, and Nancy and Bill has prepared our suite so nicely for our last minute reservation. The house is simply cozy and beautiful. The suite was perfect for my family of 4 (we have 2 little boys). Nancy and Bill were very welcoming and it was such a pleasure to get to know them. The breakfast Nancy has made was so good that my son wrote about it when he went back to school. We all had a wonderful stay and would love to come back again.

This is our second time staying at The Inn At Fawnskin. We have now stayed in two of their suites and plan to come back again soon to try out the rest of the rooms. The wood work and interior decorations are beautiful as well as the exterior view/setting. Nancy and Bill, the owners, are excellent hosts. They are friendly, entertaining, and intelligent. The breakfast food and conversation is unsurpassed. I highly suggest staying at the inn if you are in the Big Bear area. Sincerely, R & C

Our Amazing Weekend Away

We are so glad we found this GEM!! We were in town for a short weekend for the Spartan Races so we didn't get to spend enough time on the grounds but when we were there it was like being at home. Comfortable, warm, great people and food! Take me back!!!
