About Larry & Kendra Van Liew

Location, location, location — My husband and I fell in love with this beautiful property the moment we first saw it. We named it Boulder Creek Cottage because of its unique features. Living close by allows us to attend to the needs of our guests should it become necessary. Since we are local, we deal with our guests directly — from key exchanges, to cleaning, to repairs, and anything in between. Our property is fully furnished and has all the amenities of home! We take pride in our property and look forward to accommodating your stay. Larry & Kendra Van Liew (owners)

Larry & Kendra Van Liew purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Larry & Kendra Van Liew chose Idyllwild

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

July 16-18, 2014

What a fabulous place you have here! So cozy and peaceful. We throughly enjoyed every minute here and did not want to leave! It is so relaxing and beautiful. Your home exceeded all of our expectations by miles. Loved the porch, watching the birds and tree squirrels. We will definitely come back!

P.S.

Our daughter especially enjoyed the swing which supplied wonderful views of wildlife in the evenings.

Relaxing stay in a fantastic home!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I took our baby on her first mountain vacation and had a great vacation in this home. We had never been to Idyllwild and we spent a considerable amount of time researching and reaching out to other rental homes (we never got a reply). Then one day we came across this adorable place. Upon submitting a request we heard back from the owner immediately and booked our stay. Everything was super easy and professional - Larry was a pleasure to work with and we appreciated all of the information we received prior to our trip.

The house is in a terrific location - at the end of a cul-de-sac on a beautiful piece of property. It is fully stocked with everything you could possibly need. Plenty of cooking supplies (we cooked both nights), games and books (if you have time for that), a nice selection of DVDs, a huge TV in a very comfortable living room, fireplace, comfortable beds, bathtub (great for the kid) and a terrific deck frequently visited by cute birds and squirrels (also fantastic for star gazing). We really appreciated how naturally baby-proof the house is. Our little girl loved crawling around on the carpet. Yes we still had to carefully watch her, but she clearly enjoyed the freedom of the downstairs area. We really enjoyed all of the details about the house - you can tell that the owners truly care for the place and want to make sure anyone staying there feels right at home (which we did!).

We ended up driving into town every day (a very short drive) and purchasing food from the local grocery store while also checking out the little shops nearby. We took a spectacular hike out of Humber Park, which is also very close by.

Overall the property exceeded our expectations and we can't wait to come back! We hope to make this a tradition and be able to share more adventures with our daughter in this beautiful home.

What a wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5
We found this fantastic cabin for a last minute 3-day midweek break. The property is very comfortably furnished and maintained and is exceptionally clean. The kitchen has been updated and is well equipped. The bedrooms are large and the beds comfortable. The location is a perfect balance between being quiet and secluded and yet close enough to the village for shops and restaurants.

The deck outside was wonderful and had a large stainless BBQ, which we used on several occasions. We enjoyed watching the birds at the bird feeders and the tree squirrels scamper around collecting acorns. There is a beautiful wooden garden swing to the rear of the property suspended between two tall trees overlooking the forest. In the evening my husband and I would sit on the swing and watch deer graze below.

Larry was a great host and even checked to make sure we arrived safely and to see if we had everything we needed.

We had such a great time that we contacted Larry to see if we could extend our stay an extra night. Nobody wanted to leave!! It is perfect for a couple, or for two couples, or a family.

I would definitely recommend Boulder Creek Cottage!

Restful 2nd visit!

  • 5 of 5
This is a lovely, quiet location on a cul-de-sac, very well equipped, clean, and relaxing. We really enjoy the best of both worlds, the quiet deck for bird & squirrel watching, the big screen TV for football, and laundry so we came home with clean clothes. Easy access to town, we enjoyed the art galleries (Singerton is our favorite) , gift shops (Lady of the Lake), and restaurants (try Good Times Bar & Grill's Pumpkin Cheesecake, and Mountain Center Café for breakfast). We also made a day trip to the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, a scenic drive and breathtaking view of the desert valley. The owner is very accommodating, and keeps in touch to make sure we have everything we need. The cottage is large for just 2 of us, we enjoy the space to spread out, but it would also be great for a family (they have a great assortment of games!). We are looking forward to coming back again to experience some brisk, cool weather and maybe some snow!
Many Thanks, Lynette & Darrell (San Diego, CA)

Fantastic Place!

  • of 5
Just want to join the choir of raving reviews! Not only we enjoyed our stay at Boulder Creek Property but it definitely raised the standards for our future vacation rentals. Everything in this house is so well organized with personal touches and attention to the smallest details in order to make it feel like home away from home (I have to confess- my home is not organized that well, but I got some clues now!)
In addition to vacationing in beautiful settings you get personal attention from the owner, who calls to find out if everything is OK, if anything needs to be fixed, is reachable and willing to answer any questions you might have. We followed owner’s suggestions regarding places to eat and had wonderful time at “Cafe Aroma”, where we had a pleasure of meeting the owner- former math professor, listen to life guitar music, have a great meal.
Would highly recommend renting this place to everyone who is looking for quality time at a wonderful place!

Cozy and comfortable with all needed amenities

  • 5 of 5
Quiet, comfortable and ideal for our much needed "get away".
We especially enjoyed the large deck under beautiful pines where we were content to read, nap in chaise lounges and enjoy breakfast and lunch. The owners were responsive in every way - including suggesting their favorite restaurants where we had evening meals. Only wish we could have stayed another couple of days. Sandy Trybus

Boulder Creek Cabin

Our family had a great time at the Boulder Creek Cabin. It was cozy, and comfortable. We loved sitting out in the porch, and stargaze at night, or have breakfast in the morning watching the birds. It was quiet, and very relaxing.

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.

Mountain Biking offers another way for visitors to enjoy our beautiful mountain and valley areas. Mountain Bikers frequent the Ernie Maxwell Scenic Trail as well as trails in the nearby Garner Valley area.
