The space

Lovely cabin in Fern Valley, the best area of Idyllwild! 2 bedrooms, loft, 1 1/4 baths, completely remodeled with great wrap-around deck in front and modern kitchen with granite countertops and stainless appliances! Relax on the deck, watch your favorite sporting events or movies (we have DirectTV and Wi-Fi), and take advantage of the wonderful restaurants in the town. Everything you need for a couple(s) weekend getaway, girls weekend, family outing, business retreat, you name it! In winter, we provide wood for the wood stove, and the road and the driveway is plowed when it snows. We're 2 hours from LA, 2 hours from San Diego, and 1 1/2 hours from Palm Springs. Come and enjoy!

Idyllwild is a resort mountain town in the San Jacinto mountains. It is a great place to relax and rejuvenate. Visit the shops in the center of town, attend a concert at the Idyllwild Arts Academy, take a hike around the cabin or on one of the many maintained trails in the area (which thankfully escaped the 2013 fire!!). There are level areas near the cabin for morning walks, and the trailheads are about 1 mile from our place. Very invigorating! A car is necessary to get to and enjoy the area.

We have loved the peace that the cabin offers. It is airy and bright, with views of Tahquitz from the back and from the loft windows. We would love to welcome you to our little corner of paradise!

Interaction with guests

We normally communicate by email before your visit, and make an effort to meet you on arrival whenever possible.

The neighbourhood

We love the fact that our cabin is in what we think is the best area of Idyllwild; quiet, yet close to town and easy to get to. We also love the deck at sunset, or any time of day!

Our stay at the cabin was great. Doug was a great host and provided everything we would need during our stay. The pictures definitely do not do this place justice.

Upgrades kitchen, well stocked. Very easy to work with hosts. Very close to town (4-5 min drive to the heart of town). Great views of the rock! Really great spot for great value up on the hill.

We absolutely LOVED our stay at the IdyllTyme cabin! We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and Doug was so sweet to leave us a nice bottle of wine to celebrate. The cabin was very clean and we really appreciated the extra amenities i.e. water in fridge, fruit, granola bars, washer/dryer, stocked bathrooms, etc. The views from the backyard are beautiful, if you scoot the chairs over to the side porch you can enjoy the view and completely relax. It was a wonderful stay and we would definitely go back!!

This is a fantastic cabin. Extremely well-stocked with everything we needed to feel at home for our two day stay. The location is lovely and close by to town and to hiking trails. Though we did not meet our hosts, they were readily available by text or email and did a great job of thinking of anything a guest may need or want on their visit to Idyllwild. We highly recommend this property!

We felt very welcome. The details and instructions were provided in advance, there was plenty of information in the house itself about the surrounding area (restaurants, hikes, sights, shops etc) as well as info for the house. Doug and Bonnie even sent us a message letting us know about snow that was forecast during our drive, and checked to make sure we'd arrived safely. The house itself was perfect - spacious, well kept, lots of things to do and immaculately clean. Wood for the fire was plentiful and we were warm and cozy. In the morning with snow on the ground we enjoyed the space in the back of the house for a kid-friendly and safe sledding spot and some snowballing fun. Everything was perfect. Great accommodation, great hosts, easy instructions and excellent family spot.

Response from Doug:
Jenny, thanks so much for staying and being an immaculate host. I submitted a review here on the website but obviously where everyone could see; at any rate it was great to have you. Please visit again!

In second career after retiring once-I don't do "sit" well! Have had 13 exchange students from all over the world and enjoy meeting and connecting; have found strangers to be only friends I have not yet met. I love city life as well as the out-of-doors, and equally at home in the concert hall, theatre, mountains, desert, and beach. I have also had great travel experiences, both in the US and abroad.

The cabin was home for 9 years, and always enjoy sharing it with others. My goal is to always provide a 5-star experience for our guests. Come and enjoy my little piece of paradise!
