Idyllwild Cabin Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Fenced Yard, Front And Rear Decks

Happy Trails has The Location--location--location--if you're into hiking, mountain biking, walking with your dog, visiting the town center, or just enjoying all the surrounding forest has to offer, Happy Trails Cabin with its western-themed ambiance is the place to be. Literally steps (about 20, to be exact) to two main trail heads, just park your car at the cabin, and you're off! Not into hiking? A short half-mile stroll puts you in the center of Idyllwild and its shops, galleries, restaurants, and activities (check out Idyll-a-while Wine Tasting--a favorite hangout--and they even let cowboys in). You'll enjoy a king-sized bed in the master, 4 bunkbeds in the second bedroom, a full bath, living room with cozy fireplace, and a real cook's kitchen. Step outside the french doors to a rear spacious deck, overlooking a completely privacy-fenced yard for your kids and pets. Out front you'll find a second gated deck where you'll relax under even more towering cedars. The adjacent county park is a fabulous place to visit and your stay at Happy Trails includes a free park pass, so you pay no fees to use park amenities. It's a favorite place with locals to walk their dogs or take a bike ride. The huge park meadow is viewable from your kitchen window and offers magnificent views of Idyllwild's iconic Lilly rock. Enter further into the park and you'll find Indian petraglyphs preserved and protected by the park. In winter, the sledding and toboggan runs of the park are an easy walk from your temporary home--no need to drive anywhere. Hit the trail in another direction and you'll arrive at Idyllwild's Nature Center--a fun place for both kids and adults to learn about Idyllwild. Your park pass gives you free admission to the Center plus a discount in their gift shop. When your day of enjoying the outdoors is over, you'll relax in a home that features his and hers leather recliners, bar height seating between kitchen and living room in addition to sit-down kitchen table seating, and a comfortable couch that also makes up into a bed. There's a flat screen TV and DVD player over the fireplace, another in the master and second bedroom, and free WiFi for those who just have to check their email. If you like to cook, we've got you covered -- the beautiful kitchen is completely stocked with small appliances, dishes, utensils, spices, staples, etc.

Happy Trails is owned by a cowboy and his favorite gal, but even if you're a total city-slicker, we aim to make all our guests feel completely at home and comfortable with our warm western decor and hospitality...Here's wishing you all many happy trails!

About Kathy Styles

We live on a small horse ranch in Fallbrook and enjoy the company of a dog, a cat, chickens, and horses. Idyllwild is a great, close-by getaway for us and we love to visit our home often.

Kathy Styles purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Kathy Styles chose Idyllwild

We bought our first cabin in Idyllwild in 2003. We added Happy Trails just recently, as a way of offering a different experience to our guests. White Horse Cabin is the horse-lovers' dream. Happy Trails is the hikers' dream. Both great places, just different appeal.

What makes this cabin unique

This home's proximity to trails is unbeatable--no driving necessary. Easy/medium/difficult hikes, all just steps from the deck, and yet a walk to town is only a half-mile stroll. The County Park proximity is fabulous--lots of open space, history, the expertise of the rangers, and the Nature Center close by; the park is utilized almost exclusively by tent campers -- very few motor homes, and the campsites are all out of site of our home; so our neighbors are people who appreciate nature as much as you do.--love that!

Idyllwild' tranquil retreat

  • 5 of 5

Peaceful restful location. Toddler friendly getaway. Excellent tasteful decor. We enjoyed the two recliners the best. It has a kitchen with new appliances and a breakfast bar with plenty of seating. Air conditioned and lovely front yard where we saw many birds and a bunny. The front patio is child small friendly.

Amazing, would love to visit again.

It is centrally located near shopping and restaurants. Visit the nature center first to get all of your info.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words--so glad you enjoyed your stay! Just one clarification--we don't have air conditioning; seems these days all thermostats have a setting for air conditioning, but that doesn't mean it actually exists. We did put in a new heating system last year--it's the best, and it sure beats sleeping in a tent! Thanks again, Kathy

Happy Happy Happy Trails!

  • 5 of 5

We stay in Idyllwild every year for Valentine's Day and have so for the last 17 years and I have to say that this is one of the best places we have ever stayed. The cabin was the perfect size - small, but big, if you can imagine that - quite cozy, but a ton of room. The kitchen was really nice for a cabin rental, and believe me, I know! We cooked all 12 meals in that kitchen. We didn't eat out once! Thank the stars above for the dishwasher!!! The front porch was great, the back porch and yard were even better.

A couple of things that are not negatives and definitely don't reflect the 5 star review, but thought I'd mention for future guests:

It sits right up against the Idyllwild Park so a lot of walkers/hikers/dogs come by. If your dog is a barker, just prepare.

If you plan on cuddling on the couch with your honey, it's a pull out sofa bed so the cushions kind of sink in and it's hard to not either fall into the couch or roll off. They have 2 VERY comfortable leather recliners that would work just fine for tv watching. And I suppose you could pull out that sofa bed for ideal cuddling in front of the tube. ;)

No music hook up, that we could find, anyway. We always bring something with us to hook up ipods/phones for Pandora to, so we were fine, but fyi.

Again - great cabin. Top of the top!

Happy Trails Indeed

  • 5 of 5

Staying at the Happy Trails cabin was a delight! The cabin was immaculate, homey and just right for my wife and I on our anniversary. We watched TV, built a fire and went to walk around town with ease. Instructions were very easily followed and clear. We would love to go back again, very enjoyable!!

We loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had so much fun! The cabin is so charming and the location can't be beat! It's a quick walk to town and the trails are just out your front door. We loved that the front porch, back porch and yard were fully fenced for our dog. Also, I forgot the directions as we were driving there and the owner was so fast responding and resending them to me. I highly recommend this cabin!

SWEET! Great Birthday get away!!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful stay we had, the cabin is so inviting, clean as can be and comfy.

Loved the kitchen fully equipped with the exception of champagne glasses!! Only one thing that we missed, we enjoy eating outside on the deck and there wasn't any table, so we balanced our plates! The boys (dogs) loved watching the wildlife.

Thank you for a lovely stay.

Owner's Response: I agree about the table--we'll put a folding table we keep in the shed out for our guests to use. And the champagne glasses--DUH! What's a birthday celebration without champagne! I'll put that on my to do list (along with the martini glasses too :) So glad you enjoyed your stay.
