“Like staying at grandma's house while she's out for the weekend”

Nice stay if cleanliness is not a high priority. The property feels "lived-in". The owner's personal belongings are found throughout every closet of every room and in each of the bathrooms (ie., used hair brush). The owners do not use a cleaning service, so it's hard to say how clean you'll find the property. For example, we found a used razor and bar soap in the shower. Most everything was surface clean, however the kitchen and all it's contents felt greasy and in need of deep cleaning.

The upsides were the owners were very helpful and responded quickly to all inquiries. The cabin was very quite and in close proximity to Idyllwild.

“Beautiful view”

This place was hard to find we got lost a couple of times. There is a steep narrow road going down to it. We have a big truck and it was hard to park. The cabin in very spacious and has beautiful views. They don't have maid service the place was neat but not very clean. When I go on vacation I don't want to clean anybodfy's elses house, I do that at my own house. There was no firewood and we had to bring our own sheets. There are alot of stairs inside and out. The TV and DVR didn't work at all. We did enjoy sitting on the deck and looking at the views.

The cabin owners were very nice and the place is cute, to be sure. The view was fabulous, Idyllwild is adorable, and the price was good.
We aren't all that fussy, really, so the people before us leaving a little bit of a mess didn't bother us (no maid service). But: Arrive there in daylight! We had a really tough time finding it and would have been really lost in the dark. If you go in the winter- don't go in snow without snow tires or 4WD, they live on a very steep hill for your average compact car.
My main frustration has nothing to do with the owners, rather it has taken Flipkey/Tripadvisor over a month and still no refund for our damage deposit, despite their claims otherwise. Be prepared for losing that money a long while. Again, the owners submitted it on time, but TripAdvidor did not follow through.

“A beautiful home in the mountains”

My friends and I loved staying at this spacious cabin. There is plenty of room for 8 people, and the kitchen has pretty much all the tools you could ask for. We had a wonderful time.

The location is very private and the views were spectacular. We spent one day just relaxing at the cabin enjoying the sights at the window and playing games.

The town of Idyllwild is a short, panoramic drive away. We loved Oma's European Bakery, which even had a two page tea menu.

Be aware that the drive and local roads can be icy after snow, so have chains if you are traveling there in the winter. Still, I would definitely go again and would recommend it to others.

This cabin is fabulous and everything you need is there. Elaine the owner offered us their winter gear if we needed it. The weather was perfect and the next door neighbor shared his parking spot with. It was a wonderful and very cozy experience!!!!!
