A wonderful Anniversay getaway

5 on May 22, 2018

My wife and I checked in on a Sunday afternoon, greeted at the door by Nancy, the owner of the Inn, first impression, very good. After a brief review of the layout of the Inn, we were given all the information we needed to get settled. We were also greeted by their wonderful Golden Doodle, Beau, who by the way continued to let us know he enjoyed our company as well! The room was fantastic, we had a large room with a sitting area, a patio off of that, (a great place to play some games and enjoy some wine), a large jetted tub, with a separate shower, a large TV, all cable access, and DVD player. The bed was very comfortable, the room was like living in a nice log cabin, in the woods, surrounded by trees and nature, very relaxing, and exactly what we were hoping for. The breakfast was wonderful, portions perfect, and as a coffee drinker, the coffee was excellent, and a great way to start our day. I highly recommend the Inn at Fawnskin as a wonderful B&B, for a celebration, or just a nice getaway. Great people, great food in a wonderful surrounding, made to feel special each day.

First class hospitality

The Inn itself is charming but it is the owners--Bill and Nancy---who make your stay memorable. Excellent service, wonderful breakfast and first-class company.

Anniversary trip

Everything was great. The owners are very kind and helpful. Breakfasts were gourmet. The room we were in was very small. Nowhere to put your bag. The other two rooms are bigger I believe. Everything else was great!

Innkeeper Response
We so enjoyed meeting you both, and at the time, I wished you had rented a larger room to celebrate your anniversary! Oh well, perhaps next time! We appreciate your taking the time to write a review for us, and hope to see you again before too long.

Lovely Inn

My husband & I along with our two children stayed in the Inn back in February. This was our 2nd stay and we will go back any chance we get. The Inn is very cozy and Nancy’s breakfasts are a treat. The staff are very courteous. The location is close to the downtown and ski resorts which makes it very convenient. Nancy and Bill are very friendly hosts and answer any questions regarding activities around town. We feel at home every time we stayed at Nancy and Bill’s B&B. Thank you both ¿¿

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review for us! We so appreciate it, and we especially are grateful that you chose to stay with us a second time. We feel like our guests are family, and Beau thinks so too! Looking forward to seeing you again one day!

This Inn is more than charming, it is exquisite. It's relaxing and Nancy and Bill make you feel so at home. The Inn has little amazing finds all throughout it. Nancy makes amazing breakfasts. She is a chef extraordinaire and dealt with my food allergies like an expert. I was blessed to know that I could safely eat everything on my plate. They take exceptional care of you here.

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.
