'Idyll Tyme!' is a place to do most anything, or nothing at all! The cabin underwent an extensive remodel in 2013, with Direct TV, wireless internet, flat-screen TV, and many other amenities. You can enjoy squirrels, raccoons, birds, and a great view from the wrap-around deck any time of day, although it is especially nice in the evenings. From the deck, loft and bedrooms, one can see Lily Rock in all its splendor. The gated deck can be completely fenced in and secure, so it is safe for young children and pets.
Doug is a retired US Forest Service employee and Bonnie is a musician by profession, so the community's emphasis on the arts and the forest was a good match for both of us (we are now retired-sort of!). We lived in this house for 9 years while Doug was US Forest Service District Ranger and still know many local residents here, so we have extensive knowledge of the area and its special charms. We have used vacation rentals in other parts of the world and decided that our place was a wonderful area to share with others, just as others have shared with us, whether here in the US or abroad. We are happy to answer any questions you may have, and to welcome you to this little corner of paradise. Come and enjoy!
Bonnie and Doug purchased this cabin in 1981
While we lived here, we realized the special benefits of this great environment and the wonderful people who live here, and everyone's efforts to keep it that way. We look forward to sharing our piece of paradise with you.
We love the fact that the cabin is cozy and at the same time gives the feeling of openness. It is very airy and bright. The day we walked in, the first comment we made was, 'Oooo, we like!!' Through the years, we have had wonderful conversations on the wrap-around deck, especially in the summer evenings, but year around as well.
We decorate for seasons, holidays and special occasions!
In completing the remodel of our place, we've made every effort to make the cabin comfortable and modern, yet compatible with the feeling that is essentially Idyllwild. We love to take walks around the area and just enjoy the peace, but equally enjoy the local concerts and events, as well as the DIRECT TV, Wi-Fi, and other amenities of the cabin. There are level streets in the neighborhood which make a good walking or jogging route, and the house is completely accessible in winter.
Idyllwild Arts provides great concerts and is only a short drive away (please contact them for concert schedules). You can find wonderful restaurants, unique shops, and an abundance of nature related activities here. We enjoy providing seasonally appropriate decorations for the cabin, making your holidays here feel like home.
Since we live only about 30 minutes away, we make ourselves available as needed. We enjoy meeting and greeting our guests whenever possible. After all, strangers are only friends we haven't yet met!
My family and I had to be in Idyllwild for a relative's wedding and were lucky enough to find this cozy and comfortable cabin. Doug and Bonnie were easy to contact, responded quickly to inquiries, and Doug even met us upon arrival to acquaint us with the property. The cabin was spotless, with absolutely everything we needed, including a fully stocked kitchen, toiletries, and very comfortable beds. Thank you for welcoming us to your lovely cabin. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and hope to return in the future.
This was a wonderful cabin and great place to stay. We loved our two nights in Idyllwild and wished that we could have stayed longer. We look forward to coming back again and will plan for a longer stay. The owners met us at check-in and were very helpful.
This cabin had everything you need. It is so beautiful and in such a great area. The owners were very helpful. We would stay again and again.
Perfect spot! We've stayed at many places in idyllwild, this has been our favorite. The owners were great, met us on check-in and showed us around. They truly care for their home. Beautifully remodeled, kitchen and bathroom were amazing. Unbelievably comfortable beds and sheets! Also, the owner has an unreal collection of books. We did not want to leave.
We. Stayed two nights. The cabin had everything we needed. The linens were amazing. The mattresses were a little uncomfortable. The owners were very friendly and helpful at checkin. This was our first time using this website. I would definitely do it again. We had two families staying there and had plenty of room.
I highly recommend. Owner is friendly and eager to help. Cabin is spectacular.
The cabin is in beautiful Fern Valley, 1 mile from Humber Park, location of many major trailheads, and about 2 miles from several other trails and the unique shops and restaurants in the center of town. Peaceful, private, and serene, it is a wonderful place for a romantic stay for two, a friends' getaway, small group retreat, business planning sessions, fun with the family, you name it! We are on a paved road which is plowed when it snows. If you don't know where something is, please ask. Desert communities, San Diego, Orange County, and Los Angeles are all within easy reach. The Idyllwild Arts facility is close by. There is also wine tasting in Idyllwild and Temecula (about 1 hour away).
