Idyllwild Cabin Rental Photos and Description

A very cute cabin, 1 Bedroom + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

The Little Red Cabin is a great property for families and friends to gather. The cabin's securely fenced yard is beautifully wooded, play horseshoes, read a book, play games or hang out in the hammock on the giant deck. Its so nice to relax with a glass of wine and watch the squirrels, bunnies and birds. At night the stars are brilliant. The deck also has a big table with an umbrella and a barbecue. The cabin's kitchen has everything you would ever need. The queen bed is extremely comfortable. The birds hang out at the bird feeders in the front yard, its fun to watch them from the dining table or the couch by the fireplace. The cement driveway is flat, there are no stairs to the front door, it's easy access. If you feel like exercise, there is a one mile fairly flat loop to walk from the cabin, or if you are looking for more strenuous walks there are lots of hills to walk in the area. The cabin has lilacs blooming in the spring, flowers in the summer. The cabin is very private because it is surrounded by trees, yet it is very easy to get to by car. The Little Red Cabin is on a well maintained road that is plowed when it snows.

The cabin is used by our family and friends often, therefore it does not feel like other rentals that are often missing things that you need. It is very complete and personal. I decorate for the seasons and holidays. Our goal is for it to have the feeling of it is 'your little red cabin'.

About Lynn Henninger

I moved to Idyllwild when I was 9 years old. My husband, Doug and I have five children, and eight grandchildren. Our youngest grandchild has special needs, he is 6 months old and lives on the mountain with his family. Idyllwild is the best community to raise a special needs child. My parents, my brother and his wife all live in Idyllwild. My sister has a vacation home in Fern Valley. We are all very lucky to live in such a beautiful place. This photo is missing four adult children and four grand-children. It's hard to get everyone together at the same time, and the youngest wasn't born yet.

Lynn Henninger purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Lynn Henninger chose Inland Empire

We bought the Little Red Cabin because our family was getting so large that we needed more space when we all get together. The grandkids love to come up and play in the back yard and go on hikes. Their favorite store is the Candy Cupboard located in the middle of Idyllwild and the park where our town has summer concerts and there is a wonderful park for the kids to play.

What makes this cabin unique

This cabin has the best deck! If you are a dog lover you can relax on the deck while your dog explores the huge fenced yard. We love to play horseshoes at the cabin. With the big deck overlooking the horseshoe court everyone can watch. Because we have lived in Idyllwild for so long if you need any information on what is going on or how to get somewhere we are able to help. The cabin is minutes from the hiking trails, a mile and a half from the center of town and less than a mile from the Idyllwild Arts Foundation.

The cabin was exactly as promised, very comfortable, charming and perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here...the extra touches were amazing (robes, backpacks, dog treats and dog bowls with water). The enclosed yard was perfect for our dog Ozzie. We had fun playing a game of horseshoes, and the best part.....the hammock! When we come back to Idyllwild this is the only place we would stay.

Beautiful backyard, simple, comfortable cabin

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a great time at the cabin. The yard is full of trees, fully fenced and a great place for our dogs to romp and play. We loved the deck, and the quietness. The cabin was very comfortable.

Great time at The Little Red Cabin

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I traveled from San Diego for a little getaway. The cabin was as advertised and more. We really did only need to bring our food, drinks, and clothes. The little bowl of candies and basket of snacks was a fun surprise. Both beds were very comfortable and everything in the place was clean and in working order. We plan to return to this peaceful, relaxing cabin. Bobbie and Keith

We will definitely want to come back

  • 5 of 5

I came up with my dog and love this wonderful cabin It had an awesome yard for her to explore, it was beautifully set up and you really did need to only bring your clothes and food. Lynn has made this cabin a home away from home. I so appreciate all the extras, the nature pass, the dog crate, the snacks for both myself and Dottie. Thank you for everything...It was the best vacation and the we both felt like we were at home and not just living out of a suitcase. Thank you again for a beautiful stay we definitely will be back

Cozy, spacey deck and backyard

  • 4 of 5

Loved staying in the little red cabin. The one bedroom cabin was perfect for my husband and myself and my 2 doggies. The backyard is so big and the dogs loved it. Lynn the cabin owner is so easy to deal with and was accommodating to our arrival and departure times. Queen size bed, two couches, double living room, great deck space and of course the large gated yard. The cabin isn't "fancy" or new but it's perfect for its location and a great cozy getaway. I would definitely stay here again. =-)

The Little Red Cabin was a perfect weekend getaway for our family of 4 plus our 2 dogs. It was very clean and cozy. We loved the porch and the huge fenced in yard. We will definitely be back again!
