Overview

Palm Desert Chalet Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Mountain View Chalet is a charming hiking retreat nestled in the heart of the Santa Rosa Mountains on a private acre of land with soaring spectacular 360-degree views of the surrounding mountains, national forest and the Desert floor. Located just minutes from the Pacific Crest hiking trail, Lake Hemet, Idyllwild and Palm Desert, there’s easy access to beautiful hiking trails, 30 minutes to Idyllwild and 20 minutes to elegant shopping on El Paseo, gourmet restaurants, cafes, quaint shops, art galleries and movie theatres.

This beautiful two story mountain home has open beam cedar cathedral ceilings and floor to ceiling windows. It’s decorated in a vintage mountain décor that will take you a step back in time with antique accents. This 1600 square foot chalet sleeps 6 comfortably and has 2 inviting bedrooms with Queen beds and a full bath on the first floor. The second floor master bedroom retreat features a California King bed, a full bath with Jacuzzi tub, a private outside deck and a quaint reading loft for enjoying a good book while taking in breathtaking mountain and desert views from the cathedral windows. A fully stocked gourmet kitchen and charming dining area feature an eating bar, gorgeous granite counters, custom pine cabinets and new stainless steel appliances.

The chalet offers central air conditioning and heat, along with a cozy wood burning fireplace for warming up on chilly mountain days. On warmer days, you can take in spectacular views while barbecuing on the expansive wrap around deck and enjoying the birds and wildlife that swing by daily for a visit.

This property features natural landscaping filled with ribbonwood and manzanita trees along with beautiful rock landscaping and a stone stairway that leads to a lower property level with access to canyon and hiking trails.

This private oasis is filled with serenity and offers a magical getaway which is perfect for hiking retreats with family and friends. Please keep in mind young children are welcome at Mountain View Chalet, however it's not a child proof home due to antique furnishings and artwork. Please consider this when booking with young children.

Perfect Christmas

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was cozy and well mantained. We rented it for our Christmas trip. It was very relaxing and close to Palm Springs and Idyllwild. My dog had a great time too. It was the perfect place for our family.

Wonderful Cabin with Stunning Views

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at this charming cabin with its spectacular views. The cabin is meticulously maintained and is very nicely equipped with quality items throughout. There is an abundance of birds -- including hummingbirds -- and we enjoyed seeing how quickly they went through our daily filling of the bird feeders. We also saw a coyote who sauntered through the yard while we sat on the patio and even captured it on video. It was extremely windy the final 1.5 days of our visit, but we were quite content to lounge inside and enjoy the views from the shelter of this cozy home. While we preferred to be lazy this trip, there are ample hikes in the area.

As this is the desert, it can be quite dry with relative humidity down around 10-12%. We certainly plan to visit here again and will likely bring our humidifier with us.

A fabulous place for rest and relaxation.

  • 5 of 5

After spending 3 weeks sight seeing around New York, San Francisco and L.A., it was fantastic to be able to relax before going home to Australia. The cabin fulfilled all our expectations and more. Coffee in the morning on the deck soaking in the fabulous view all around us and watching the humming birds drinking from the feeders that the owner has put out for them was very entertaining. The cabin was very clean, very well appointed and maintained. We would highly recommend anyone to choose this as a getaway. From the Palm Springs tram to The Yard House restaurant or just going for walks in the area, there was plenty for us to do. We would like to thank the owners very much for allowing us to stay in their beautiful cabin.

Romantic getaway

  • 5 of 5

My fiancee and I spent a special weekend at this cabin retreat away from the big city in downtown San Diego. We loved waking up and having our coffee on the deck overlooking the San Jacinto Mountains. We found a true gem with amazing views. We had such a great time and can't wait to spend our next anniversary here. The only suggestion we have is that we'd love to have a guest book to leave our wonderful memories in. The bottle of complimentary wine was a really nice touch!!
