Guestbook comments from the owner
Larry & Kendra, you have such a beautiful rental here. Not only because of the location, but also the care and thought put into everything. It truly felt like home away from home. We would love to come back out during the snowy season. Thank you guys so much. My husband and I really enjoyed our time here.

My husband and I purchased Boulder Creek Cottage because we fell in love with it the moment we first saw it. We live in Temecula, CA only an hour away. Being so close allows us to respond to our guests needs if necessary and to enjoy the Idyllwild mountain atmosphere.

Larry & Kendra Van Liew purchased this cottage in 2013

Our cottage is located up against the national forest and offers a secluded and quiet retreat for our guests. Being the last property on the street just adds to the mountain ambiance and privacy. It is not uncommon to see deer on our property.

Boulder Creek Cottage is a quiet, clean, cozy, secluded retreat situated up against the San Bernardino National Forrest. This is a perfect getaway for a few days to allow one to breath in the mountain air, enjoy the wildlife, hiking, rock climbing, biking, horseback riding, antiquing, shopping, or to just rest, renew, restore and reconnect. Our cottage provides a wonderful mountain ambiance, yet with all the modern conveniences. Whether used as a romantic honeymoon venue, a fun-filled family retreat, or just a cozy getaway, we think you will love our cottage.

LIKE COMING HOME

  • 5 of 5
An amazing job of providing everything. From the minute we walked in everything was right where we looked. for it. This made a great base for us to explore the area and take some grueling hikes into the mountains nearby. We really made good use of the big deck as a place to hang out and recover from our walks and plan the next one. Constant entertainment provided by the traffic around the bird feeders. Electronics worked great. TV, computer and cell phones all were as good as home so that we could get away without dropping out.

A MOUNTAIN HOME THAT IS A TRUE GEM !!!!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I have been visiting Idyllwild for over 25 years and have stayed at many different homes in both Idyllwild and Pine Cove. We both found the Boulder Creek Cottage a 'home' that we will return to again and again. The home is nestled amongst the tall trees at the end of a cul-de-sac, and has a high degree of visual privacy which we highly value. Hummingbirds were our constant companions as we observed them from both inside the home as well as from the deck. One item of particular note that we observed was how clean the home was from top to bottom, including the fresh bed linens and soft bath towels - all provided by the owner. The large flat screen TV in the living room was perfect for our night time DVD's, which we rented from a local store in town, and to our delight, we also watched a couple of the owner-provided DVD's from their DVD library. Bring good walking shoes, as you can walk the local mountain streets or you can quickly access the Ernie Maxwell Trail which is not too far behind the home. We stayed 4 days and 3 nights, and each night we saw a star filled sky from the front deck. One final note, the owner's provided well written instructions on how everything 'works', as well as the use of a free National Forest Adventure Pass. We will be booking another reservation toward the end of this year.

BOULDER CREEK COTTAGE WAS EXQUISITE!

  • 5 of 5
Boulder Creek Cottage was exquisite! It’s a perfect location with beautiful forest to the rear of the property. The trailheads at Humber Park are close as are the shops and restaurants in town. We enjoyed having lots of space on the deck to sit outside and barbecue. The cabin is spacious and had all the amenities imaginable in the kitchen, which made staying in and cooking a very nice option. The owners were marvelous to work with and made checking in a breeze. Thanks so much for making it one of the most memorable weekends we’ve had with our friends. We will do this again soon!

BOULDER CREEK COTTAGE IS SIMPLY WONDERFUL!

  • 5 of 5
Boulder Creek Cottage is simply wonderful and so is the location. It is immaculate and beautifully decorated. The location was perfect for exploring the surrounding area and hikes we were interested in. The area has a lot to offer. We did some hiking, shopping in the quaint downtown area, wine tasting, and sightseeing.

We ate like kings with food we prepared in the well-stocked kitchen. There were added bonuses such as good quality coffee beans and a grinder so that I started my day off with a fresh cup of coffee. One evening we used the propane BBQ to cook dinner and enjoyed hot chocolate on the large deck. We enjoyed fires in the fireplace and watched Blu-ray movies on the large flat screen TV in the living room. They have a large selection of DVD’s to choose from.

Larry was wonderful to work with and allowed for early check-in. We usually stay at B&B's or hotels. Their rates and location and amenities beat all other places we've stayed before. Thanks! I highly recommend Boulder Creek Cottage and look forward to returning soon.

OUTSTANDING, SPACIOUS COTTAGE!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four (2 adults and 2 kids under 12) stayed here over Thanksgiving weekend. We have stayed in other places in Idyllwild but none compared to this. The place is very spacious, as you can see from the photos online, and secluded yet close enough to town when we wanted to be. We love hiking and were pleased to be located less than a 2 minute drive from Humber Park. The accommodations were wonderful and Larry was a wonderful host. Everything is included in the place that you need to be comfortable. Larry and Kendra we appreciate your hospitality and will definitely stay here again.

THE PERFECT CABIN RETREAT!

  • 5 of 5
Our family loved our stay at Boulder Creek cottage! We just wish we could have stayed longer. First of all, working with Larry was great. He made the process very easy and was readily available by phone or email for questions. He also had great recommendations about the area.

This is exactly what we were looking for in a cabin retreat. We had never been to Idyllwild before and the nature is just stunning. The town is very quaint and lovely. Next time we will spend more time exploring the shops and restaurants. For this stay we were happy to cook our meals in the cabin and relax either on the large deck or by the fireplace.

The cabin is really lcozy and you feel right at home immediately. The kitchen comes equiped with everything you need and the local grocery store is just a few minutes away. Everything worked great and we had no issues whatsoever. The kids were kept occupied with the many boardgames available and the TV. We went for a great hike at Humber Park which is just a short drive from Boulder Creek.

The location of the cabin feels very secluded even though there are some neighboring cabins. You are surrounded by trees and the only sounds we would hear are the many beautiful birds.

We hope to stay here again! We truly fell in love with Idyllwild and Boulder Creek cottage. Thanks Larry!

Map

Idyllwild is a quaint mountain community, offering an endless array of activities to suit everyone's needs. Hiking, rock climbing, biking, horseback riding, antiquing, shopping, pottery painting, great restaurants, Fourth of July Parade, a Jazz Fest in August, summer music concerts at the Park, theatre, art galleries, and fun in the snow are just some of the '101' things to do in Idyllwild.

The Village Shopping and dining are favorite pastimes of our guests. A pleasant stroll through the village takes you past many unique storefronts. Shops offer one of a kind gifts, antiques and all varieties of Idyllwild mementos. Art Galleries abound in our Idyllwild village area, including ceramics, sculpture, paintings, photography, and wood works.

Dining is always a wonderful experience in Idyllwild. Ranging from a quick sandwich at one of our delis to an elegant dinner, you can find what you are looking for in the village. Choose from Classic American, Country, Mexican, Italian, Chinese, German, or Greek!

The Rustic Theater provides an evening of movie fun, with one screen showing a first run movie. Outdoor concerts provide fun music in the village on occasional weekday evenings throughout the summer. Our many service organizations offer old-fashioned Pancake Breakfasts at our Town Hall on many summer Sundays. Outdoor activities are a wonderful way to enjoy the beautiful San Jacinto Mountains!

Idyllwild's wilderness offers over 275 miles of hiking trails. Choose from the easy Ernie Maxwell Scenic Trail for the novice hiker, or perhaps a more challenging hike to Tahquitz peak, Long Valley, or the top of the Palm Springs Tramway. Snow brings a new set of adventures to our visitors, whether it's a gentle walk in the snow or an exciting day sledding, everyone loves the winters in Idyllwild.

Lake Hemet and Lake Fulmor are stocked with trout and await visiting fisherman.

Rock Climbing brings many adventurers to Idyllwild. Tahquitz and Suicide Rocks offer numerous routes for beginning as well as experienced climbers.
