About Paul Zapala

We live in Palm Springs and love coming up to Idyllwild. We purchased the cabin next door, and always wondered about the log cabin next to us and why no one ever used it. When it came for sale, we knew we had to rescue it! The cabin is a perfect combination of peace and quite, views and privacy in a very unique actual log cabin!

Paul Zapala purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Paul Zapala chose Idyllwild

Located right next door to our existing Vacation Rental, Naughty Pines, we've always wanted to rescue this unique log cabin. After many months of renovation, we've turned this log cabin into a unique lodge-like vacation escape. Best yet, you can rent both cabins for large parties and sleep up to ten people in two cabins next to each other!

Super clean, tasteful and cute log cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We really loved the cabin. It's located at the end of the road so it's very quiet. The house is decorated "cabin-y" but nice. I've been renting in Idyllwild for 20 years and so many of the cabins are decorated as though a doily exploded and are kind of gross. There were lots of extra touches that we a martini shaker, martini glasses and cords to charge our phones. Behind the house is a fire road that leads up to a magnificent view of the valley below. We really enjoyed our stay and will be back again for sure.

The property is so lovely. So idyllic. It was perfect for us. It was cozy and clean and had a beautiful view of the snowy trees. Everything was as advertised and Paul is great with communication. We'll definitely be returning!

This was our second year staying here and we, again, had the best time. The first time we stayed here it rained the whole time and we were stuck in the cabin and it was wonderful. This time we got to venture out and there were so many good trails near the cabin but we still love hanging out in the cabin around the fire-it was so perfect and cozy. Everything is so clean and uncluttered. Can't wait to stay there again next year!

Wonderful experience at the cabin!

  • 5 of 5

I'm so happy I found Timbered Pines! We had 3 guests total plus our dog. I don't think it could've been anymore perfect! The cabin is so cozy and very clean. We had the fireplace going a lot, everything was labeled and easy to figure out. Loved having the stereo system hooked up to our bluetooth phone. We made full use of the kitchen and it was perfect. Just a short drive to downtown Idyllwild and lots of hiking trails. We will definitely be staying here again and recommending it to our friends! Thank you!
