We want your visit to leave you feeling like you have a home away from home - so we pay extra attention to the 'small stuff'. The cozy loft has a queen size lodge pole pine bed, tv and small sitting area. The down stairs has an open floor plan, vaulted ceilings, lots of windows, tv, and a river rock backdrop for the wood burning stove.
The kitchen is fully furnished with all the amenities we can imagine you might need. The living room has a futon sofa and futon chair providing comfort not only for watching tv but also additional sleeping options.
The cabin has a wonderful feeling of seclusion & privacy. Surrounded by nature, perched on the hillside with its wraparound deck you feel like you are in a treehouse. While you lounge on the deck you can enjoy watching your four legged friends chase the squirrels.
After a day of watching the antics of the local wildlife you can grill dinner and enjoy it on the deck as you watch the sunset. Follow this with a soak in the hot tub while star gazing, and surely your cares will melt away.
Charming Idyllwild is a short, scenic 5 minute drive from the cabin. There you will find many shopping opportunities and various international cuisine options. Our favorite is Cafe Aroma. While in town make sure you check out the many acclaimed art galleries.
Let the granite out cropping named Taquitz by the local Indians of Idyllwild's past lure you into its shadow and move you with its ancient lore. You can also take advantage of the many hiking and mountain biking trails in the area or just kick back and catch a movie at the Rustic Theatre.
Idyllwild is home to the reknown Idyllwild Arts Academy, Jazz Fest and the annual Memorial Day weekend town wide garage sales.
We are both psychotherapists. We understand from a personal and professional level the importance of self care and for us that comes from communing with nature. Living in the city life can get pretty stressful but in a short hour and a half drive we can be walking with our jack russell in the mountains. We know the importance of being able to travel with your pets. We don't go many places without ours so we offer that to our guests.
Cathie purchased this cabin in 2004
And as for the town of Idyllwild - there is no other like it. It's a gem that has escaped the crowds of Big Bear and Arrowhead. It is so accessible to L.A. and San Diego yet feels like another universe. We're amazed that it is so 'unknown'. John Muir was quoted as saying 'The view from San Jacinto is the most sublime speptical to be found anywhere on this earth.'
We bought the very first property we looked at. There was no reason to look any further! As our spa guy says 'I service many of the properties up here and there is just no view like yours!' Both the view and the seclusion are unrivaled! The property is at the end of a small side road with only 4 cabins on it. A short hike puts you at the edge of the National Forest and lots of secluded hiking opportunities. We love taking our pooch to run the nearby trails. We find that the privacy and stellar views make the 5 minute drive to town more than worth it!
We have been to Idyllwild many times and have found our favorite cabin at Stellar Summit. Thank You! What a special place. My husband fed the birds each day. We saw an owl at dusk from the Jacuzzi. It landed just above us and stared at us for several minutes with a lizard in its mouth. You NEVER see that! Angus thoroughly enjoyed chasing the chipmunks on the deck – and moving from place to place to slumber in or out of the sun depending on how hot he was. We will surely be back.
