The Inn at Fawnskin is a lovely B and B. I felt so at home. The room was lovely and I loved sitting in the yard. The breakfast was amazingly delicious, seated at the dining table with china and silver, visiting with people from all over. I will definitely be back.

We spent a wonderful three nights at the Inn for our wedding anniversary. Our suite was the Lakeview Suite and it couldn't have been nicer. It is beautifully appointed with a great attention to detail. We loved the big, comfy, four-poster bed, spacious sitting area with fireplace, nice modern bathroom with double sinks and jacuzzi tub and the deck with...

...the noise upstairs above the Garden Room. We so enjoy the room's access to the gorgeous garden, the spaciousness, the good lighting, and the comfy bed and chairs, but when someone is upstairs, even trying to be quiet, it comes right through the ceiling of this log cabin. So choose your room carefully. Otherwise, you can't go wrong!

Dear Diana, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with other travelers! We are sorry you experienced a problem with noise above you.....B&B's are often converted homes, and even though the rooms above you have carpeting, they are not insulated like hotels with concrete between the floors! We hope to see you and John again next summer...

Our stay in Big Bear was amazing thanks to Nancy and Bill. They were super welcoming and friendly. Nancy gave us some suggestions on places to visit and cooked up an exquisite breakfast!

Beautiful setting. Walking/hiking trails nearby. Big Bear across the lake, easy access. B&B owners treat you like family. Bill & Nancy can give you info about most anything going on in the area. Beau is a super happy/friendly furry meeter/greeter. Breakfast is an epicurean delight every time.
