Rustic and inviting lake home in convenient location just steps from marina

With plenty of room, a cozy fireplace, and a beautiful rustic cabin feel, this charming Fawnskin vacation rental is ideal for traveling families or a large group (up to eight guests) getaway.

Located on the north side of Big Bear Lake, Fawnskin Retreat offers a quiet, small-town getaway. There are a few convenience stores on this side of the lake, but the real catch here is that the marina is located just a hundred feet from your door! Bring or rent a boat for summertime fishing, waterskiing, kayaking, and more. You can also easily drive around the lake for more attractions in Big Bear, like skiing and snowboarding in the winter.

This cozy mountain cabin is surrounded by pine trees, and with natural wood walls and furniture, and plush forest green carpets, you'll easily feel right at home here.

Relax in the living room on the leather sofa or loveseat while listening to the fire crackling away. Search for constellations using the telescope, or watch a show on the flatscreen cable TV.

Bring plenty of food with you because delicious home-cooked meals are a possibility for every meal here with the fully stocked kitchen! The stainless steel major appliances wonderfully complement the gorgeous wood floors and natural wood ceilings. Also included here are a microwave, blender, dishwasher, toaster, and plenty of cookware.

Play games or eat your tasty meals around the dining room table for four before heading off to Magic Mountain for a thrilling ride down the alpine slide.

The master bedroom offers a queen-size bed and an attached bathroom with a gorgeous tile stand-alone shower. The remaining two bedrooms also have queen-size beds, and there is a twin with a twin trundle beneath available as well.

More great amenities here include games, a table-size foosball table, WiFi, and a washer and dryer.

Visit the Alpine Zoo, located just seven miles away, right next to Bear Mountain Resort, which offers skiing, snowboarding, snow tubing, and more in the winter. Magic Mountain is also about seven miles away, and close to Big Bear Lake Village, so you can ride down the alpine slide and water slide, and putt through the mini-golf course before some shopping and a tasty meal at any of the eateries inside the Village.

For year-round fun with a wonderful small-town feel, bring the whole family to this Big Bear vacation rental.

Our family loved the home in Fawnskin. It is a great location on the North side of Big Bear Lake just far enough from Big Bear Lake city center to miss out on all tourist hustle, but still easily access the city when needed. A small park across the street that was convenient for our kids to sled and play in the snow.

We loved staying here it had everything we needed and was far enough from Big Bear that we could enjoy the quiet.

8 of us stayed at this cabin and the open living room to kitchen area is perfect to entertain everyone at the same time. It's adult and kid friendly. The 3 full baths are the definite plus when multiple families are traveling! Beautiful lake view but still secluded enough to have peace and quiet. The cabin is beautiful and you can tell that the owners spent a lot of time detailing it for their vacation guests. There are instructions posts all over the house on how to use everything and that came in very handy from locking up, the TV, cable, heaters, surround sounds etc.......I definitely would stay here again!

Big Bear Lake is a wonderful area to enjoy the out of doors. The house had challenges in that the main toilet was not working. When reported, maintenance came out and confirmed it was not usable but did not repair it so it remained unusable the full weekend so no convenient bathroom. There was not a gas grill present as listed in amenities. There is no lake view. The house is comfortable and clean.

We were very pleased with the cabin. Clean, spacious, classic "cabin d├ęcor", close to the Fawnskin Marina. Overall a great place to stay and I would highly recommend it! We're looking forward to coming back next year...

Great cabin, next to marina. Ample room and bathrooms for 3 couples. Parking for 3 cars. Got firewood from nearby grocery store.

Took my family up for the weekend. Wife and 3 kids under the age of 5. They all had a blast. We wanted to stay inside most of the time, so the place is big enough to play and do activities. Only time we went out was to play in the snow. Luckily the front deck was large enough for all the kids and my wife and i to have a snowball fight. Plus in front of the driveway and in between the cabin and the neighbors cabin, there is a lot of area to play in the snow. We all had a amazing time!

Highly reccomend. Yes, they needed batteries for the television and for the game system, but it was great in general.
Manager response:
We apologize that batteries were not available during this guests stay. All remotes have had batteries changed, and spare batteries have been provided.

The rustic lake home was amazing. We were in Fawnskin for a small family wedding taking place at the Fawnskin Inn and the lake home was ideal for overflow of family of eight adults. The owners went above and beyond their rules to help accommodate our unique situation, which we were extremely grateful. The home certainly sleeps eight comfortably with three bedrooms and three bathrooms. One bedroom has a queen bed with a trundle, so two of our couple's needed to double up. It worked, because we are a close knit family. We are pleased with our choice of homes in the area. And thank the owners for helping making our stay extra special!

Great house, very cozy.

The biggest disappointment was we were told by reservations that the property was 3,800 sf with a separate studio, making it four bedrooms total. Even the photos show four bedrooms (& also a review by a previous renter mentioned 4 BR), but when we arrived, we only had access to the main cabin which has 3 bedrooms. Therefore, the square footage was not near what we were expecting & we also were short a queen bed. The friendly owners were on site in the other cabin & unaware that we were told that we'd have access to the entire property. The information provided to me by Vacasa was false & misleading and I blame property management.

Aside from the false advertising, the cabin is wonderful. Cozy, clean, stocked with extra linens & plenty of cookware. We would stay again.
Manager response:
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review for us. We apologize for any miscommunication that occurred regarding the number of bedrooms and want to assure our guests that we would have addressed the situation had we been notified of it during this guest's stay.

This year our family wanted to do something different for Christmas so we all decided to try Big Bear. The Fawnskin cabin was one of the last 4 bedroom cabins available so we decided to take it chance and book it. I was so nervous when arriving to the cabin because I did not know what to expect. When we opened the doors, we were pleasantly surprised. This is an absolutely beautiful cabin with all the amenities your family will need. The staff made sure that the cabin was nice and warm upon our arrival. There was a note on how to operate everything which came in handy. Fawnskin is located right outside of Big Bear so driving in town took less than 10 minutes. I would definitely recommend this cabin to anyone looking for a quiet getaway.
