About Loraine Dyson

Hi! I'm Loraine!

We love Idyllwild! Being in the real estate field as brokers, developers and investors for over 40 years, my husband and I know a choice property when we see it... and this is one! It took us all of five minutes to decide we had to own this treasure. It's the ultimate Idyllwild vacation home! There is something about Strawberry Corner that brings back memories of a sweet life, of baking pies and sitting by the fire, of feeling a part of a little town. This home gives everyone a feeling of the 'way it used to be'.... it enchants, delights, relaxes and intrigues all visitors. It just feels like 'home sweet home'. Places like this are priceless and it is our great joy to have our guests experience the same feelings we have every time we open the antique wood door with the stained glass strawberry window! This house is perfect for those who want healing, restoration, romance, quality family time with the kids of all ages, peace and quiet, creativity, and personal renewal!

Loraine Dyson purchased this cabin in 1998

Why Loraine Dyson chose Inland Empire

We purchased this home in 1998 when our daughter was three so we could have an authentic vacation lifestyle far from the busy cities or glitzy resorts. Idyllwild was clearly the best choice since it's within easy driving distance from the desert, San Diego, Orange County and Los Angeles. We loved the 'Norman Rockwell' small town feeling and the darling stores, crafting, hiking and great restaurants. It's so picturesque there! We feel safe and secure being so close to the village and were blessed to find a home that reflects the history of Idyllwild. It's been wonderful here and we would like to share the experience with others. We love being on the creek, which is a prime location in Idyllwild. We felt this home had it all! Location! Creek! Charm! Condition! There is something about Strawberry Corner that brings back memories of a sweet life, of baking pies and sitting by the fire, of feeling a part of a little town. This home gives everyone a feeling of the 'way it used to be'.... it enchants, delights, relaxes and intrigues all visitors. It just feels like 'home sweet home'.

What makes this cabin unique

We love all the seasons! In the winter it's a WINTER WONDERLAND and the snow makes for a magic we rarely get to experience. SPRING brings out the colors and the green, SUMMER is divine with sunshine and warmth! and of course the FALL is enchanting with the leaves turning and a crispness to the air. Many guests have said it's the most romantic place they've been and we've had one proposal! Just sitting around relaxing and talking after a hike or stroll into the village is so great. I have to say it's really super for afternoon naps on the comfy couch too!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just returned home from our trip to the cottage! What an amazing place! I knew from the pictures that it would be cute - but I was overwhelmed with all the wonderful touches and such clever decorating. We had SUCH a nice time! It was absolutely perfect for our anniversary.

cutest strawberry themed cabin!

  • 5 of 5

this house was extremely cozy and perfect for a weekend getaway. we cooked a lot and the kitchen had all the appropriate amenities for us to use. we loved being in the cabin so much we barely went outside at all, instead hung out all weekend in front of the giant fireplace. loraine was super accommodating with check in and out times and even took the time to mail us some items that we had left there. great vacation, would love to visit again!

Absolutely perfect for our family

  • 5 of 5

The space was perfect for our family. The interior was charming and very comfortable. The yard was perfect for the grandchildren to play with their squirt guns and bubbles! We spent many hours on the patio listening to the creek, and enjoying the beautiful scenery. A very short walk to town for shopping and restaurants, and a short ride to the lake for swimming. Best feature of all was the upstairs play area for the grandchildren, it was filled with toys. We would be delighted to have the opportunity to enjoy this awesome home again.

An Idyllwild Gem

  • 5 of 5

A charming, spacious, and well-appointed cabin. A babbling brook in the back. A large deck with ample seating for lounging and dining. A hammock. A guest house and garage. A short walk to the grocery store, brewpub and restaurants. A gazebo. An owner who really cares about providing a memorable experience for guests. There is nothing lacking and no end to the pleasant surprises of staying at Strawberry Corner!

Charming and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

This home reminded me of my grandmas house in France. Absolutely charming! Loved the décor. Relaxing by the fireplace, playing chess, listening to music and engaging in conversation, things we don't take time to do in our busy lives. It was a great place to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. The town is quaint, the people are very welcoming. The scenery is beautiful. The creek out back was music to our ears. Thank you so much Loraine for sharing your home with us. We look forward to visiting again.

Charming mountain cottage

  • 4 of 5

This old cottage is quaint and charming and very well located. It's an easy walk to town and to a grocery store. An added bonus is that it's situated right on Strawberry Creek which is very pleasant. If you have a big group, it's perfect with the many areas to sleep. We particularly enjoyed the large, stone fireplace. It made our stay very cozy on cold winter days.
