About Larry Van Liew
Location, location, location — My wife and I fell in love with this beautiful property the moment we first saw it. We named it Boulder Creek Cottage because of its unique features. Living close by allows us to attend to the needs of our guests should it become necessary. Since we are local, we deal with our guests directly — from key exchanges, to cleaning, to repairs, and anything in between. Our property is fully furnished and has all the amenities of home! We take pride in our property and look forward to accommodating your stay. Larry & Kendra Van Liew (owners)

Why Larry Van Liew chose Idyllwild-Pine Cove
Our cottage is located up against the national forest and offers a secluded and quiet retreat for our guests. Being the last property on the street just adds to the mountain ambiance and privacy. It is not uncommon to see deer on our property.
What makes this Cabin unique
Boulder Creek Cottage is a quiet, clean, cozy, secluded retreat situated up against the San Bernardino National Forrest. This is a perfect getaway for a few days to allow one to breath in the mountain air, enjoy the wildlife, hiking, rock climbing, biking, horseback riding, antiquing, shopping, or to just rest, renew, restore and reconnect. Our cottage provides a wonderful mountain ambiance, yet with all the modern conveniences. Whether used as a romantic honeymoon venue, a fun-filled family retreat, or just a cozy getaway, we think you will love our cottage.

Great cabin close to town. Larry was super helpful.
My wife, toddler, a friend and I stayed here for a few days. The cabin was clean and welcoming. The beds were comfortable. The kitchen was the best outfitted kitchen I've seen in a house rental. If you love to cook you will have everything you need.
We enjoyed the deck and surrounding grounds. The fireplace was cozy. The proximity to town and trailheads couldn't have been better. Definitely recommend!
Larry was perfectly communicative and made the check in, check out and stay a breeze.
Perfect Idyllwild Getaway
We recently returned from a two-night, mid-week stay at Boulder Creek Cottage. It was a delightful time. The cabin is spacious, yet cozy and the owner, Larry, was very helpful and gracious. I talked with him on the phone and he offered advice on places to hike and things to do. After we returned home, we realized we had left an item of clothing. I talked to him on the phone and he was so accommodating and pleasant about getting it returned to us. Very nice person! The cottage is in a beautiful setting and has a large deck that would be great to use in warmer weather. Definitely a thumbs up!
Cozy nice cabin for weekend getaway in Idyllwild
This place is everything it describes, cozy, clean and quiet since it's located at the end of a street. Inside the cabin, you can find everything ever needed for a weekend stay. Outside the cabin it's also amazing how nice the surrounding open space is. We really enjoy the stay at this place.
A piece of Heaven
Larry was kind enough to text me the day we arrived to see if we needed anything and to let us know that at anytime we should call if any questions. The home was so comfortable. We enjoyed a nightly glass of wine in front of the beautiful fireplace and it was like heaven.
They had everything we could have needed along with puzzles and games. We would recommend this cabin to all our Family and Friends. We were coming from Wisconsin and were pleased to see there was no snow.....
Thank you Dawn for your kind words, Kendra and I were glad to hear you and Kevin enjoyed your stay at Boulder Creek Cottage. We would love to have you back again soon!
Providing our guests with all the amenities people want and need in a vacation rental makes our place stand above the rest. Quality and service is our goal.
This is the best vacation rental I have ever stayed in. The owner was great to work with and this place has everything you will need for a wonderful stay including a fully stocked kitchen, comfortable beds, unlimited firewood and a large BBQ.
Very Nice! The house was lean and cozy and stocked with everything we needed.
We loved walking into the house and seeing the Christmas tree that was setup! It was a nice touch and that combined with the cozy feel of this property really made us feel at home. This location is very peaceful, yet just minutes away from where all the shops and restaurants are. The property owner was very nice, made sure everything was in place for us and checked to make sure we made it there safely. My kids and I had a great time and would definitely recommend this property.
