Lucky for me, my parents moved our family to Idyllwild and into this house when I was a child. I was lucky enough to be afforded the opportunity to grow up in this amazing town. I grew up writing poetry on the deck with only moonlight to illuminate the page, climbing rocks, building snowmen and having many snowball fights with my brother and sister. There were many 'White Chirstimas' mornings and Thanksgiving day hikes. My family still gathers at the house to share laughter, love and tales of life's experiences. It is a place we will always call home and I am excited to share it with you.

Ida purchased this lodge in 1976

This home was built in 1945, by Lou Britton and has since been owned by the Famous Mystery Author, Earle Stanley Gardner, whose ownership created a local nickname of 'The Mystery Cabin.' I try to create that same sense of awe upon your arrival that I felt as a child walking through the giant wood door and looking up onto the sky high knotty pine ceilings! Wow!

Five minute walk to the centre of Idyllwild's restaurants, shopping, music, and art galleries. The homeowner's family has vacationed and lived in Idyllwild for over 46 years and is committed to providing you and your family with personal service to optimmize your stay with us.

San Jack and Relaxation

Great cabin for 8-10 people to enjoy the outdoors, get away from the city, and relax. We loved the cabin - and especially the hot tub! Would definitely recommend staying here.

The owner was very accommodating. The Lodge was well stocked and personal touches were wonderful. We will come back in the spring to enjoy the Jacuzzi, beautiful deck and barbeque as the whether didn't permit this visit.

beautiful home on a quiet mountain

We stayed here for 3 nights and really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home with everything you could possibly need. I loved the BIG porch with the antique accents and the beautiful wood door. Upon entering, I fell even more in love. I love everything about this home. Its charm & décor are perfect. Fresh flowers in "every" room (even the bathrooms) was a very nice touch and of course the homemade banana bread was soooo good and a very nice, special touch. My family had a great time. We enjoyed star gazing in the Jacuzzi at night, the video library, the music system, the fire place, the bar and the big cozy family room. My grandkids enjoyed the books. We also enjoyed the short drive to the Nature Center where we had a great time on the "easy" nature trail. And walking to the town was very nice too. We are looking forward to enjoying this home again next year.
From the moment I booked this home, I knew it would be a great trip. Ida is wonderful to work with. Responds quickly and answers all questions.
Thank you Ida for a great "family" trip.

Amazing Girls Weekend

  • Stayed: Jan 2014
We traveled to Idyllwild to get away from it all and have some good girl time and had no idea really that this home would be so perfect. I loved when we walked in and Ida had music playing with fresh flowers everywhere. It was clean and welcoming. The deck is so gorgeous and fully equipped with table and chairs. The kitchen had EVERYTHING we needed and more. Ida was more than sweet and helpful. We really couldn't have asked for a better place to spend our time. We had such a glorious weekend here and we will definitely be back!!

Family get together

Ida was lovely and we had fun running into her all around town. The cabin was beautiful. The Christmas decorations inside and out were fun. I've rented lots of places and this was the best accommodation regarding amenities....everything we could have possibly needed was provided. The location was great...we walked to town and explored the village. We fell I love with the blue jays...they made mornings exciting...we left them a gift..a huge nut and seed block....so they won't have to steal the squirrels nuts for awhile!

Take the Palm Springs Aerial Tram up the mountain and hike down the trail into Idyllwild. Southern California Wine Country (Temecula) is a short 45-60 min. drive and also provides lots of antique shopping in Old Town.
