The Destination
Southern California's premier four-season playground, Big Bear Lake offers the absolute best of snow sports, spring blooms, and summer splashes. Tucked among the San Bernadino Mountains, the tiny township of Fawnskin borders this action-packed landmark. With some of the oldest buildings in the Big Bear Valley, downtown is a popular spot for shopping and dining, while the area's pine-filled forests provide privacy for those in search of peace and quiet.

The Digs
Situated across the street from Big Bear Lake, The Inn at Fawnskin rests on a tranquil acre, surrounded by shady groves and wooded pathways. Innkeepers Nancy and Bill lovingly manage this cozy log cabin, named for its Native American origins. Each guest room boasts a delightful collection of antique décor coupled with homey comforts like roaring fireplaces, relaxing sitting areas, luxurious microfiber spa robes, airy balconies, and stunning lake views.

The Diversions
Peruse the antique shops and other boutique stores of downtown Fawnskin. Then, grab a bite at Sweet Basil Bistro (locals love the lobster ravioli) or Peppercorn Grille. Return to your secluded forest resort to curl up with a good book and a nice glass of wine—the massive stone fireplace in the spacious, shared living room makes a perfect nook.

  • "The weather is nearly always perfect at this 7,000-foot-plus elevation: If you want proof, ask CalTech, which operates a solar observatory here to take advantage of nearly 300 days of sunshine per year."
