Guestbook comments from the owner

We had the best time at Sam and Sandi's mountain house! Photos do not do it justice. Spacious and comfortable and all amenities one would need! Turn off the lights and get the best star gazing ever. Close to creek , town and hiking. Hot tub and fireplace made for a super cozy stay! Would highly recommend!

Great Place.

  • 4 of 5

Everything was great except there are not any screens on the lower level windows. We could not have them open for the breeze to cool-off the interior. We stayed in July. Days hot. Really enjoyed the hot tub.

Nicely furnished!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Skyrock Mountain Home! It was furnished with so many extras; we even found a Happy Birthday banner that we hung up for my sister's birthday that we had come to celebrate! We were 5 adults, but this would be a great place for a family with kids. We were near the town and near hiking areas. Would recommend!

Excellent place to stay in Idyllwild

  • 4 of 5

This property is as described. Communication with the owner was seamless. We had an easy time entering the house and reading the instruction binder. It's a lovely and quiet location with lots of outside areas to relax. The 3 bedrooms were comfortable, including for our 89 year old father. It's close to town and everything you want to do, yet serene and peaceful. We agreed that we would like to return again. The house has all the amenities one would desire, was very clean, and provided exactly what we were looking for while we attended the Idyllwild Arts program. We only ate at Cafe Aroma in town, but that is my favorite restaurant there anyway. We cooked our other meals in the amply supplied kitchen. I highly recommend this property.

Beautiful cabin with plenty of room for a family

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the cabin and started up a fire with the complimentary wood and starter logs. We had the warmth of the fire making the cabin so cozy on a chilly May evening. After spending some time enjoying the many amenities, we went off to the various bedrooms and beds for a great nights sleep. Waking up in the morning and making some coffee and breakfast in the amazing kitchen, and preparing for the day of adventure: climbing up to the Tahquitz Peak Lookout. A solid 6 mile hike up and back from the parking area a few miles away. Returning from this hike, we looked forward to making use of the hot tub. Pro-tip: if you intend to use the hot tub during your stay, set the temperature up and start the jets as soon as you arrive so that you give it time to warm up. It can take many hours to get up to full temp with a softub. It was a nice and toasty 104 degrees when we returned from our hike and we enjoyed a soak for our tired muscles. A truly perfect end to the perfect day.

It may be cliche to say it felt like home, but truly this cabin does. After spending the weekend, we immediately felt like there is nowhere else that we would want to spend our time when in Idyllwild! Our only regret is that we didn't get a chance to use the grill. We planned to have a grill out, but ended up too exhausted from adventuring. The propane was complimentary, just another of the little bonuses that you notice throughout this rental. It felt like home because the owners want you to feel like their guests, not like their renters. That really makes all the difference!

Thank you is not enough!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived with our two granddaughters and everything was perfect! Beautiful home ! So charming and well appointed! Everything is there... neat, clean and organized! The Soft tub was a huge hit and we all enjoyed the grounds! The girls did not want to leave and neither did we!! The town of Idyllwild is a nice walk and the creek is a block away... it's all right there! SkyRock on Lodge is truly a magical place! We will be back as soon as we can!

Beautiful home; especially good for kids

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 2-night stay at this property. I was traveling with a 6- and a 2-year-old, and they slept in the loft bedroom. The loft bedroom does not have a ton of privacy (so we had to be very quiet in the common areas at bedtime), but that was more than made up for by how enthusiastic they were about the whole setup. The house also has a wonderful selection of books and toys for kids and sleds in the garage in case you don't want to buy or schlep your own. We didn't walk to town because there are no sidewalks and it would have been dicey with young kids, but for a group with adults and older kids the walkability would have been a great asset. The house does indeed feel bigger and nicer than the photos suggest, and it was VERY warm.
