We had an astounding stay at James and Paul's Timbered Pines! First off, let us say that this rental is all about location, location, location. Situated at the end of a quiet street, it was private and secluded yet only minutes to downtown Idyllwild and all it has to offer. As for the cabin itself, it is not only immaculate but was obviously totally recently redone. Everything feels fresh and new, and James and Paul have stocked it with everything you could ever need. Basically, all you have to bring is your toothbrush/toothpaste, your clothing, and your food. Every room in this home--living room, bathroom, kitchen, bedrooms (it sleeps six!)--feels spacious. The appliances are new, and there's even a washer and dryer. The biggest selling point, in our humble opinion, is the amazing deck. We spent both nights watching the sun set at cocktail hour, and then making dinner on the BBQ and eating it al fresco. Did we mention that Timbered Pines is dog friendly? That's a BIG plus, as our two pups LOVED cavorting in the house or chilling out on the deck (with or without us). We seriously can't say enough about this place, or its amazing hosts. Except that two nights were not enough. We plan on returning soon and often. Now that we've experienced summer at the top of the mountain, we can't wait to witness fall, winter, and spring. And since James and Paul are so responsive and communicative, we know that our stay will again be hassle-free. This is a DEFINITE recommend. Five star, A+++! Way to go, guys. You've truly created an amazing Shangri-La for your guests. THANK YOU once again.
