About the property

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.

Awesome Relaxing Cabin in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

This little cabin was just the right size for 2 old friends and their 3 dogs and had everything that we needed or could ask for. Lynn was awesome to welcome our pups with clean water bowls and doggie treats. That was such a nice touch and much appreciated by all. The view from the back deck was amazing and it has a great fenced in backyard for the pups to venture out and explore. The area was nice and quiet and very peaceful. We enjoyed sitting on the deck in the morning drinking our coffee and listening to the birds and at night we played games (which they provided) and watched the stars. They have a deck to have a bbq and great dinner table to have meals on. The weather wasn't very cold but I had to light a fire in the fireplace because it was so tempting. This is the 3rd time we have gone to Idyllwild on a doggie vacation and this was the best rental yet. We will be coming back. Thanks Lynn for making our long weekend away so enjoyable.

PERFECT little cabin! Fenced yard for dogs!

  • 5 of 5

The Little Red Cabin is a treasure. It's super cute, well-maintained, clean and includes a number of amenities (all kitchenware needed, BBQ on deck, snack basket, fireplace, satellite TV, tons of linens, heater in bathroom, local restaurant recommendations, hiking maps, state park parking pass, pooper scooper - it's all in the details!). It's close to town and many of the hiking trails nearby. We had a wonderful stay, relaxing on the hammock under the tress while our dogs explored the fenced in backyard. Look no further - this is the perfect weekend getaway cabin!

Very cozy

  • 5 of 5

My whole family loved it, including our little dog. None of us wanted to leave. We had a lot of fun sledding in the yard. We definitely will be looking forward to doing it again soon.

wonderful cozy cabin

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in the LRC with our two dogs. The yard is awesome for them to run and play. It was quiet, peaceful and everything was clean. Lynn is very accommodating. The bed was very comfy, the cabin is adorable.

I'm looking forward to going back!

Loved our little red cabin

  • 5 of 5

The moment we arrived, we fell in love! The little red cabin was decorated for Christmas, the lights were shining, the cabin warm.

Inside was comfortable with EVERY possible thing one would need to enjoy the experience. Linens, soft robes, comfy beds, every utensil you could need, plates, little snacks and snow shovels, even wood for the fireplace.

Outside, the deck was a view to the beauty and the yard was amazing, with little sitting spots situated among the trees to be quiet and read. Our city dog had a blast running around. The hosts even provided water bowls for rover.

The water straight out of the tap was clean, clear and tasted good, although our thoughtful host provided a filter pitcher. Really not needed because the water must come from a well, it tasted so good.

At night, all the neighbors turn off their lights so the view of the stars from the back deck is stunning!

Close to town, but the hike in the neighborhood is great as well. One can hole up in the cabin with every need met or wander into town or a hike.
