EXCELLENT

  • 5 of 5
When I consider the overall package (cabin & grounds), it's the best I've rented. Really enjoyed indoors and out with the family and just hanging out by the BBQ or playing outside with the kids was awesome. Views are spectacular and feels like you're secluded from the world around you. Will difinitely be coming back.

AN INSPIRING GET AWAY THAT HAS IT ALL

  • 5 of 5
What a lovely home -- And this one really feels like 'home'. It has a fully equipped kitchen, cozy living spaces and all the DVDs and CDs you can use. It really feels like you are staying in a friend's home rather than renting a 'sterile' house. The grounds and view are spectacular. You can even soak in the Jacuzzi after creating aches and pains on the trampoline. Dog and kid friendly too. I will be returning year after year.

WEEKEND FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
This lodge is great. We saw a gorgeous full moon, wildlife, and had some wonderful family time. Lodge is perfect for a weekend away with your family. Each of us had our own bedroom, and shared meals. Grandsons had a great time as well. I would recommend this Lodge to anyone. We hope to come back next year.

GREAT PLACE FOR A LARGE GROUP.

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful Thanksgiving vacation in your breath-taking, beautiful homes. We experienced such peace and joy in this perfect “piece of heaven.” Actually saw a deer cross the driveway, great grey squirrels, bright blue jays in abundance, the Christmas tree-lighting and Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus! Just such a wonderful time!

It has become a tradition of our family to spend Thanksgiving in Idyllwild. We have stayed in many different cabins over the years and this was by far our best experiences. We have a large family and it can be a little hectic all being under one roof. So we elected to rent Charles Place just a short walk down the road. Both had beautiful views and tons of wildlife. We used Charles place as a quiet retreat and place for kids with early bed times while the rest of the family stayed at Keifer Lodge. It made for a very pleasent experience with such a large group.

We hope to return to these lovely places each time we visit Idyllwild. Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful homes with us.

BACK TO NATURE

  • 5 of 5
Wow, spectacular views from sunrise to sunset, then a magical world of little lights coming on in the valley below and countless stars coming out in the heavens above. Great accommodations. Great for walks, hikes. Great for relaxing and getting work done in peace and quiet. Loved it!
