About JOHN RINALDI

We live in San Diego and love to hike. Owning a home in Idyllwild has been a dream since I first visited the mountain 18 years ago. The home is a dream! It is beautifully appointed, newly remodeled from top to bottom and enjoys lots of privacy and seclusion.

JOHN RINALDI purchased this cabin in 2012

Why JOHN RINALDI chose Idyllwild

The last owners remodeled the home with love and utilized many of the same materials used in my primary home like slate floors, the moment I walked in the home I knew this was the house!

What makes this cabin unique

I love views and being up high. The home features large decks in the front and in the back and is quiet and serene. It is a first class home with many fine touches. The unique wood carvings, the large lava rock fireplace reaching to the ceiling, the spa against the rocks, a backyard surrounded by granite rocks, all of these things captured my heart.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a very nice weekend! The cabin is amazing. All of the amenities needed were here and more. We loved the game room and hot tub! We hope to visit again next year!

The location was just as described and illustrated in the listing. We got what we had expected.... no negative surprises. Owner was very helpful and honest in answering questions before booking. I would say the location would be perfect for people looking for a place more on the off-the-grid side. Would definitely consider going back there...

Beautiful home in a private setting

  • 5 of 5
We were six friends and two dogs and we had an amazing time hiking in the mountains and hanging out around the house. There was a beautiful trail within walking distance. The house had a great kitchen and game room and felt very private. We loved to just sit out on the deck and look at the view.

Eagle Rest Lodge is quiet, comfortable, and clean. The photos don't capture the "niceness" well enough - no photos do. The kitchen is fully stocked like a real home - with better appliances and pans than I have in my own home! Beautiful slate floors. Bed linens you sink into comfortably. A sparkling clean hot tub on the back deck (normally I stay out of rental hot tubs but this one was VERY clean.) A peaceful front deck with a fire ring and plenty of dry wood for s'mores. When you sit on the deck, your view is through the tops of trees - which is probably why it is called "Eagle Rest!" We had two teenagers with us and they immediately went to the game loft and made popcorn in the big popper machine. The pool table kept them entertained, and of course the WiFi was critical. They also found a gaming system under the TV. The sleeping arrangements were great for our group - two mothers and two teenagers. The two bedrooms are very comfortable with their own bathrooms. The loft bed is just that - you climb up a 6 foot ladder to get into the loft space which is not high enough to stand up - but it is perfect for a teenager or adults who are OK with a snuggly space. I was glad to have a different bedroom. The futon couch/bed is in an alcove off the bedroom with direct "talking access" to the loft bed. So it is good for a child or teen who gets along with the person in the loft bed. :) The futon did not have enough privacy for my me. The spiral staircase is very cool and leads to the game room, back deck, hot tub, futon alcove, loft bed, and the master bedroom. I would not want a small child or old people using the staircase. There is a queen bedroom and bath on the first floor that does not require use of the staircase. For our group, two friends with two teens, the house was perfect! We all had our own sleeping space and a big kitchen to work together in. Plus we're young enough to shlep all our stuff up that big flight of wooden stairs you see in the photos. Older adults might not enjoy the entrance. Too much detail here - but we loved Eagle Rest and will return in the future. It exceeded our expectations.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay in our home! There are quite a few stairs up to the home however, that is the price of privacy and great views. We did recently acquire the Falcon Rest Lodge next door, prop # 597413 the cabin also offers amazing views, privacy and upscale amenities with no steps into the cabin from the rear drive!

WONDERFUL SECLUDED UPSCALE CABIN WITH ENDLESS VIEWS AND PERFECT AMENITIES.

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I and three close friends decided to spend the 4th of July in Idyllwild and chose the Eagle Rest largely due to the extremely positive reviews and responsive owner and this property more than lived up to the reviews and our expectations. Everything one could want for a luxury weekend away is in this cabin, from the jacuzzi, a pool table and even a blackjack table and a movie theater popcorn maker. We expected to hike a lot, but the cabin was so much fun we stayed in and played games and watched movies on the Apple TV with fresh popcorn and only made it on one hike. In the morning, we made fresh waffles with the waffle makers! The very responsive owner sent us a great welcome package with details about the cabin and local information on where to go in Idyllwild, his recommendation for Cafe Aroma, including when to go and where to sit, was spot on, it is an awesome restaurant with great live music. The cabin is one of the more expensive properties for its' size on VRBO but it was well worth the money as the amenities, quality of the cabin, furnishings etc were worth every penny! Plus, there was no additional fee for bringing our dog and there were dog beds, blankets, bowls, food dishes and pet toys waiting for our little guy! Our VRBO experiences are always great but this was the best rental yet!

Wonderful weekend at Eagle Rest Lodge!

  • 5 of 5
Our group had a great time at Eagle Rest Lodge over Memorial Day weekend! The house is exactly as pictured and described in the listing. The living area was big and beautiful, the kitchen is upgraded and well stocked, and the bedrooms were very comfortable. The view from the house was great and there was a lot of room to sit outside and enjoy the scenery. We brought our dogs with us on this vacation and the owners are very dog friendly, providing water bowls, blankets to cover the furniture, dog beds, and toys (although the dogs would not go up the stairs in the house, but we were fully aware of this from the other reviews; no surprise). We couldn't have asked for anything better and can't wait to book our next trip! We would highly recommend this place to others!

Relaxing weekend at Eagle Rest Lodge!

  • 5 of 5
We had 6 adults staying for the weekend - 2 in each bedroom and 2 on the futon. We weren't sure if 2 of us would sleep on the futon or in the loft from the pictures, but the ladder to the loft (though secure) was well... a ladder. It says that in the description, but we hadn't quite thought through whether we were still young enough to be climbing a ladder in the middle of the night for a bathroom break. We aren't! I did it once for fun and the mattress up there was actually quite comfy. It wasn't a problem though because the futon was also comfortable and had the best view in the house. Curtains in the room with the futon might be nice in case you want to sleep in -- but personally I loved laying in bed and watching the stars fade and the sun come up over the mountains. Absolutely breath-taking. The property was super clean and in great condition, the kitchen and bathrooms have obviously been re-done recently. It's rare treat to find a house like this with a kitchen that's really stocked for cooking. Blender, can-opener, non-stick pans, gas stove -- it had everything we needed. The living room is fantastic, great view - GORGEOUS fireplace. Sofa big enough to seat all of us comfortably and simultaneously - same with the kitchen table. The owner was super quick replying to our emails and questions and I would definitely recommend this property to friends and we will probably stay here again sometime. It's a great spot to stay if you want to hike the Deer Springs trail, as parking there can get busy and the trailhead is walking distance from the house. The stairs up to the house from the road are not a joke. Kids would probably love it, but I wouldn't recommend it for small children. The spiral stairs in the house could use some grip paper on them, they are metal and slippery if you are wearing only socks. Hot tub was super clean and ready to go. We used the grill and outdoor fire pit as well. We didn't touch the TV since we were there to un-wind and un-plug - but the appleTV is a nice touch and the ever important wifi worked throughout the house. Cell signal was good too.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay! We are actually in the process of adding anti-slip to the spiral steps, (Long term goal to change out the wrought iron stairs with an artistic wooden spiral). Please come back and see us again, we constantly upgrade and items to the cabin to enhance everyone's visit.
