About Loraine Dyson

Hi! I'm Loraine!

We love Idyllwild! Being in the real estate field as brokers, developers and investors for over 40 years, my husband and I know a choice property when we see it... and this is one! It took us all of five minutes to decide we had to own this treasure. It's the ultimate Idyllwild vacation home! There is something about Strawberry Corner that brings back memories of a sweet life, of baking pies and sitting by the fire, of feeling a part of a little town. This home gives everyone a feeling of the 'way it used to be'.... it enchants, delights, relaxes and intrigues all visitors. It just feels like 'home sweet home'. Places like this are priceless and it is our great joy to have our guests experience the same feelings we have every time we open the antique wood door with the stained glass strawberry window! This house is perfect for those who want healing, restoration, romance, quality family time with the kids of all ages, peace and quiet, creativity, and personal renewal!

Loraine Dyson purchased this cabin in 1998

Why Loraine Dyson chose Idyllwild

We purchased this home in 1998 when our daughter was three so we could have an authentic vacation lifestyle far from the busy cities or glitzy resorts. Idyllwild was clearly the best choice since it's within easy driving distance from the desert, San Diego, Orange and Los Angeles. We loved the 'Norman Rockwell' small town feeling and the darling stores, crafting, hiking and great restaurants. It's so picturesque there! We feel safe and secure being so close to the village and were blessed to find a home that reflects the history of Idyllwild. It's been wonderful here and we would like to share the experience with others. We love being on the creek, which is a prime location in Idyllwild. We felt this home had it all! Location! Creek! Charm! Condition!

What makes this cabin unique

We love all the seasons! In the winter it's a WINTER WONDERLAND and the snow makes for a magic we rarely get to experience. SPRING brings out the colors and the green, SUMMER is divine with sunshine and warmth! and of course the FALL is enchanting with the leaves turning and a crispness to the air. Many guests have said it's the most romantic place they've been and we've had one proposal! Just sitting around relaxing and talking after a hike or stroll into the village is so great. I have to say it's really super for afternoon naps on the comfy couch too!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just returned home from our trip to the cottage! What an amazing place! I knew from the pictures that it would be cute - but I was overwhelmed with all the wonderful touches and such clever decorating. We had SUCH a nice time! It was absolutely perfect for our anniversary.

Strawberry Corner in Idyllwild....Exceptional in every way!!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Strawberry Corner for our last 2 nights of a 3 week road trip. This gorgeous vintage property is exceptional in every way possible! The owner has decorated this charming cottage to exude a warm and cosy feeling from the first step inside....and gets better and better throughout! There were only 2 of us but the property is capable of sleeping 9-10....it is much more spacious than it appears from outside. It has a creek side back deck adjoining the cottage with a covered gazebo a short few steps away....with tall red woods and huge ponderosa pines towering over the property which is a short walk away from the charming shops and restaurants of Idyllwild. There is a lovely guest cottage attached to the garage. The owners have decorated this property to perfection....with vintage cottage magazine attention to every possible detail.....it was undoubtedly a labor of love. Unfortunately, due to extreme drought conditions at the time of our stay, we couldn't light the fireplace.....but it's not hard to envision how cosy that scenario might be on a chilly winter evening! Just can't say enough about this property.....we've travelled extensively...this stay will always stand out in our memories!!!

Loved the town of Idyllwild!! Property very close to town, able to walk. Cabin was very
cute and well kept. Loved the gazebo with lights outside. Could use some more seating in the main room of the cabin. Would definitely stay again.

Loraine was the perfect host making sure all details and arrival went effortless. The home was incredibly warm and inviting and too large for just the two of us! The vintage cabin feel with the western decor impeccably done right down to the lasso in the bathroom. The morning sun came pouring in the morning and the afternoon sun was perfect for sitting on the back patio overlooking the creek. The dogs loved running around the property, and isn't it what's its all about.....the dogs! We loved walking to our favorite restaurant The Gastrognome for dinner and the coffee shop for some hot yummy coffee in the morning. Great location and perfect accommodations. One note: many lightbulbs were out which made it difficult to read at night.

Owner's Response: Thank you again for your visit to Strawberry Corner! Your review is just lovely and I've changed all the lightbulbs.... they do go out from time to time and I'll put that on my "condition check" list! It was a pleasure having you! Good luck with your own cabin search! Idyllwild is divine!

Great place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5
What a great location. So close to downtown. We were able to walk to all the restaurants and shopping and arts of this great little town.
We brought our two little dogs with us, they are rescues and had never been on a vacation before. We were concerned that they would be scared and not enjoy themselves. Could not have been farther from the truth!
There is a large deck that is fenced. The yard is fenced as well however we didn't shut the gates so I didn't take the boys into the yard unless they were leashed.
They got to go for about 6 walks each day and they enjoyed smelling everything that a country dog smells.
The house is beautiful, large and very inviting. The kitchen has everything anyone would need for a weekend (or longer) getaway. Plenty of space, plenty of beds and that cowboy cabin is the best!
I can't wait to go back!!

Quaint and Charming

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had an amazing time at this beautiful, cozy home! Strawberry Corner is roomy, very comfortable and just like it’s pictured! We enjoyed coming together and cooking our meals in the quaint kitchen, playing board games in the dining room and watching movies on the comfortable couches in the living room. The outdoor space was just as wonderful and we spent many hours relaxing, reading and eating alfresco on the deck and in the gazebo. The evening walks around town and our hike to Devils Trail only added to the wonderful family memories that we’ll always treasure.

It truly is a spectacular home that has something to be enjoyed by all ages.

Charming

  • 5 of 5
Strawberry Corner is charming in every detail. We have wonderful memories hiking the creek, wandering through the Nature center,hanging out with family, and spending time in downtown Idyllwild. The grandkids were looking forward to the "notorious" zip line, and it did not disappoint. Strawberry Corner is a special place to make special memories.
