About Monica Elrod

I visited Idyllwild in 1996 and fell in love with the scenery, the people, the charming town, the sound of the wind in the pine trees. One day I plan to move up here permanently.

Monica Elrod purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Monica Elrod chose Idyllwild

Quiet and secluded wooded setting, the open, airy floorplan in a newer cabin, with all the amenities. Two balconies, one off the master bedroom with own bathroom. Close to town, but peaceful and serene - a perfect getaway!

What makes this cabin unique

Step into the house and feel the stress disappear. Enjoy the a seasonal creek, the wildlife including visitors at the bird feeder. Central heating and air conditioning, ceiling fans, fenced in yard. The neighborhood stays cooler in summer and snow stays longer in winter.

Idyllwild poker weekend

  • 5 of 5

My buddies (7 total) rented this cabin for a 4 day weekend. The cabin has a perfect layout, strong internet, and enough sleeping locations for 7 of us. The top floor has a kitchen, full size dinner table, and a living room with lots of sofas and chairs for just hanging out. Down stairs are 2 queens and a bunk bed in 3 separate rooms. The cabin is about 4 miles to town (a little too far to walk) which really didn't bother us as we pretty much hung out at the cabin. Cabin is completely surrounded by forest which is really nice. I would say the only very minor things to be aware of is kitchen utensils are not quite enough for cooking for 7 hungry guys over 4 days, and anyone with stair issues might find it difficult since all sleeping and bathrooms are downstairs. We did have a guy on crutches but he managed it ok.

All in all we would absolutely 100% rent this cabin again ...

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review, greatly appreciated. One small correction I wanted to make: the cabin is exactly 2 miles from the center of town. (I know, hard to believe). Glad you enjoyed your weekend. Cheers, Monica

Picture Perfect Christmas Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely winter vacation in the mountains :) The cabin was perfect for our needs and was just a short drive or healthy walk into the quaint town of Idyllwild. Very well equipped and cozy. We were lucky to get some snow for the new year--just enough to keep us home bound for a few days watching movies from the nicely stocked collection of dvds at the house. Monica was very accommodating and easy to work with. She also returns emails/calls/texts in a timely manner. We thoroughly enjoyed staying in this well cared for cabin and would definitely like to revisit in another season!

Clean, great view, would definitely return

  • 5 of 5

The rental was very clean, well stocked, and very comfortable. We had 3 adults and 3 kids, so having two large beds and a room with a bunk bed (twin and double) worked great. The heater worked well, the two bathrooms got plenty of hot water, and we had everything we needed. The view from the balcony is fantastic. Monica was easy to work with. Plenty of storage for everything we brought, as well as plenty of stuff in the kitchen already there for us to use.

Retreat in the Trees

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the cabin was wonderful. The cabin is spacious, well appointed and clean. The upper balcony is a fabulous place to sit back and enjoy the beauty that surrounds you. Monica is super easy to with and made our stay a memorable one. The downtown village is a fun place to poke around for an afternoon. Everyone in town is friendly and welcoming. We will definitely be back!!

Quiet Cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

It's hard to capture the essence of a place by the pictures that are presented online. Usually, you expect a place NOT to live up to what is presented in it's advertisement. In this case, we were pleasantly surprised. The cabin looked better in person than it did in the pictures. Also, available to us were all the necessities and comforts of staying in one place for a few days. Thanks for making available to us such a great house to stay for a weekend!
