Everything was very nice and clean. With a well appointed kitchen. There are lots of great hiking trails nearby, perfect for the nice cool mornings.
My dog and I spent one month is this wonderful "cabin with a view." The huge deck was our favorite. So much squirrel and bird action it was hard to keep up!!! The town of Idyllwild is dog friendly, and I was able to eat at very gourmet restaurants (and there are several in Idyllwild) with my four-legged friend. All in all, a great experience!
This is a lovely cosy cabin close to the road but very quiet after dark. The property is all wood, with a warm lounge area and a sizeable deck, looking south. Two double rooms were great with plenty of bed linen and towels. Water was hot and the heating worked well although we arrived during a small heatwave. The kitchen has a good sized refrigerator and gas oven. There is a huge and somewhat complex microwave. A small investment into some glassware and updated crockery would make a perfect kitchen for four. The TV has a DVD player and there are some good movies to choose from. No batteries in the tv remote though so we used the buttons on the tv itself. There is a BBQ on the deck and it worked well. The deck itself is showing signs of wear and arguably needs a little TLC. It is a super place to sit at any time and feed the jays or just watch the sun come up. The deck, rustic as it is, endured a small earthquake whilst we were there! There is double glazing throughout though the dining area window doesn't close fully. With a missing lightbulb here and there, the property could be perfect with minor investment. It is, however, a beautiful area to base yourselves, just a three mile drive from Idyllwild. Check out the Nature Center, Fratello's Italian restaurant and Wooleys gift shop. I have no doubt this would also make a nice winter cabin. Just don't forget to bring food for the birds! We would love to return.
We did not meet the owners during our stay.
