Overview

Idyllwild Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Sylvan Cottage - cozy, comfortable, welcoming! A short trek takes you to hiking and biking trails in the National Forest surrounding Pine Cove and Idyllwild. A 10-minute drive and you're at lovely Lake Fulmor that's great for an afternoon of fishing or picnicing. On the other hand, once you settle in, you may not want to leave the Cottage. Whether it's a cozy afternoon lying on the sofa with a good book or a workout on the mountain trails, Sylvan Cottage is your place.

Idyllwild, with its excellent cafes and restaurants, is just 3.5 miles down Hwy 243. Rather stay in? No problem! Your kitchen is fully stocked with the equipment and tools you'll need. We've provided a great set of dishes to set your table. Your BBQ is right outside on the deck, along with a dining table for you and your guests.

We've given you a queen bed with a memory foam topper for extra comfort. If there's more than two of you, the sofa in the living room pulls out to make another queen bed. We provide all your linens and some extra nice features in your bedroom & bathroom.

Your cottage awaits you with the furnace on in the cold months and lights to welcome you in. Make Sylvan Cottage your mountain place when you need peace and quiet or a convenient launching pad for your vacation activities.

Also, Sylvan Cottage is next door to Sylvan House (VRBO # 643221 - formerly a long-term rental, now available as a vacation rental). For group / package rates visit www.lmcidyllwild.com or call 909-225-5127 for a custom quote for your next family gathering in the mountains! The two properties together sleep 8 adults and several children of varying ages.

Keywords: Small, nicely furnished, comfortable, separate unit, easily accessed, mountain getaway.

About Nancy Layton

Sylvan Cottage is located on a 1/2 acre property I bought in 2011 to retire here in the not-too-distant future. My sister, Nancy Layton, has lived in Idyllwild for 18 years, is very active in community affairs and manages this property for me. Her husband, Rick foster, is a local handyman and locksmith and provides repair and maintenance services for this property.

Nancy Layton purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Nancy Layton chose Idyllwild

When I come to Idyllwild for my own vacation, I stay in either Sylvan Cottage or Sylvan House, depending on what's available. Eventually, I'll retire here and live in Sylvan House, which we recently remodeled and furnished to be a comfortable vacation rental for you.

What makes this cottage unique

As guests of Sylvan Cottage and Sylvan House you will enjoy clean, comfortable ambiance and and easy access location. Since neither unit is currently occupied by anyone on a regular basis, you'll never feel as though you're intruding on someone else's space - it's all yours to relax and enjoy!

Sylvan cottage

  • 4 of 5
The Sylvan cottage was itself cute, clean, and had everything you needed! I loved the location! The one complaint I would have would be the dogs in the main house. They barked ALL day and the owner was never to be found. I felt sorry for them more than the barking! Otherwise it was a perfect stay!

Very nice stay...

  • 4 of 5
I want to echo everything the previous reviewers had to say although the bed was fine for my preferences. In addition, I had an emergency situation in which we could not make it to the cabin for a night for which I had already paid. Nancy didn't have to refund the cost of that night's stay but graciously did anyway without any negotiating or pressure on my end. She was very helpful with directions and any other questions we had.

Affordable and Charming

  • 4 of 5
We made last-minute reservations to head up to Idyllewild for an anniversary. We were thrilled with the availability of this cottage. The amenities were accurate the location was nice and secluded. The bedroom was delightful and romantic. We spent the warmth of the day lazily around the cottage and the cool of the evening walking town, getting dinner and drinks, taking in live music. Nancy was very helpful, always available by tele to answer the smallest of questions. She was a great remote host assuring that our time away was fruitful and relaxing, especially working with our arrival and departure needs. We would definitely recommend Sylvan Cottage and hope to return soon.

Sylvan Cottage

I love everything about it. It is really clean and new, warm and comfortable, there is out door patio and a little front yard for kids to run around. But the only thing really set me back is the bed, which is tooooooo soft. We can not really get a good rest on that sink in bed. I hope the owner will change it, so I can come back with the kids. We love Idyllwild so much, the hiking, the shopping and the restaurants. People are so nice and the bakery goods are out standing.

Owner's Response: Grace - I feel bad that you found the bed too soft, as you describe it. We actually put the 2" memory-foam topper on it specifically in response to both the owner and several other guests who said the mattress was too hard and "board-like". I guess each person has their own idea of the perfect bed - that's why the sleep-number beds are becoming so popular. But they're way too costly for our owner's budget, so that's not possible.

We're very happy that you enjoyed your stay in Sylvan Cottage, other than finding the bed too soft. (I'm hearing Goldilock's voice now!) If you care to come back again, remind me, please, of your bed preference and we'll remove that topper for your comfort before making up the bed for you.

Our guests' complete satisfaction is always our goal!
