ENJOY THE WOODSY ELEGANCE OF BROOKSONG ON STRAWBERRY CREEK

Idyllwild House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6 (designed for four adults and two kids)

Woodsy Charming Elegance is the best way to describe this wonderful two story mountain home nestled in 100 pine and cedar trees right on Strawberry Creek. Fish for trout, walk to the Village or relax in the swinging hammock seats on a lazy summer afternoon or cuddle up inside with a fire blazing in the wood stove on a wintry day.....while the 'chef' of your group creates gastronomic delights on the Wolf Stainless Oven/Range ....It doesn't get any better!!

If you like to cook, this is the best equipped kitchen on the Hill. Every kitchen appliance and gadget you can name is here plus a full selection of cookbooks for every appetite. Plenty of room to create and serve something in style. Come and get it!

Located on the creek, you can walk to town on the creekside path in five minutes or on the road in ten. This cabin is located down a steep driveway, feels secluded, only one part time neighbor. Excellent cell phone reception - unlike much of Idyllwild.

Sleeps 4 Adults 2 Children (ideally)

Charm and joy: The cabin has a natural cabin feeling because everything is wood. Even the cabinet handles are Manzanita branches. Very tall beam ceilings and skylights give a wide open feeling. The decks and deck furnishings were built by a renowned local deck builder.

You can hear the creek from the master bedroom with the doors open. Over 100 trees are happily growing here. Between the house and the creek is a meadow of strawberry bushes.

Besides the 'master' bedroom upstairs under the skylight, there is a great loft bedroom room for 2 kids. Their closet is full of games and toys and things to do like puzzles. There is another room and 3/4 bath downstairs (privacy) with a queen bed for one or two.

For the whole family there is a huge library (over 200) of movies to watch. There is a phone with free USA calls and the internet is all set up for you.

There are lots more photos to send you if you like. Just email me and I'll email the photos to you.

Location : You can walk to town in 5 - 10 minutes. Less than a mile. Take the creekside path for a shortcut if you want. Brooksong is a magical place that you will want to return to year after year. One of the most favorite cabins in Idyllwild.

Guest reviews:

12/17/12 Jon: 'Great get away. Brooksong is a peaceful and fun retreat. My wife our girls and Nana had a wonderful 4 day vacation. Just staying at the cabin is good enough but we had a fun time hiking, exploring the creek, building snow men, following animal tracks in the snow, taking photos of the beautiful nature surrounding, taking in the peaceful woods, playing games inside (provided) sitting by the fire, star gazing, fixing great meals in the fully stocked kitchen, watching movies (provided) going to town and site seeing and shopping and just reading and relaxing in the authentic and comfortable cabin! This was our 2nd time here-next year #3!! Recommended for: Girls Getaway, Sightseeing, Families with Teenagers, Romantic Getaway'

Kaila K. 7/25/12 wrote: 'Excellent. I can't say enough about how absolutely fantastic this cabin is! This is my second time staying at Brooksong and it seems like each time I stay, the place just gets better. It's got all the amenities you could possibly want, and the access to Strawberry Creek is fantastic. You are totally out in the forest, but can easily follow the Creek up into town (just a short hike) - great location. The owner of the cabin was amazingly wonderful to work with and you can tell from staying there that Brooksong is not just a 'vacation rental place,' but it is the owner's vacation home, and it shows in all the little touches. The outdoor decks are mind blowing and super comfy; the indoor space has plenty of interesting things to occupy one's time, from comfortable beds and bathrooms to a well stocked video library, book library, game library and even a wonderful kid's play area under the stairs, complete with toddler appropriate toys and baby gate for the bottom of the stairs.'

M. Banks: 3/22/13 'We rent cabins and condos quite a bit and for the first time we didn't have to get our 'cabin kit' out. It's easy to tell that the owners stay here and it's not just a forgotten investment.'

OMG!! This place is my best discovery for 2013. What a cozy, warm, charming and welcoming cabin. Walking distance to town and to the hiking trail. The creek sound while enjoying tea on the patio with those tall gorgeous trees surroundings, are something to go back to!!! Me and my Family had the best NY ever in that lovely place. Kudos to the sweet owner and how easy the process was, and thanks to the manager who was very nice and helpful as well. Definitely a come back!!
Take my word for it and you won't regret it. The Brooksong, is the experience you need if you are looking for comfort, warmth, Coziness, fun, fully equipped kitchen :) and great vibes for wonderful memories.

We wished we would've had more time to stay and relax but 2 days provided a wonderful get away in a cozy, charming cabin along the creek. We hiked into town along the creek, sat outside in the sun and just breathed in the pine tree smell. We will be back.

We had a wonderful time at the cabin. We made use of the fabulous kitchen for our thanksgiving dinner. Our daughter enjoyed the expresso machine and our grandson loved the swings and the creek access. The cabin is so warm, cozy and inviting.

What a great weekend! Myself and two boys (under 10 years) played games, hiked, fished in the creek, and had a blast just hanging out on the deck. The furnishings were comfortable, clean, and pretty high end. My ideal place to "camp!"
