About JOHN RINALDI

We live in San Diego and love to hike. Owning a home in Idyllwild has been a dream since I first visited the mountain 18 years ago. The home is a dream! It is beautifully appointed, newly remodeled from top to bottom and enjoys lots of privacy and seclusion.

JOHN RINALDI purchased this lodge in 2012

Why JOHN RINALDI chose Idyllwild

The last owners remodeled the home with love and utilized many of the same materials used in my primary home like slate floors, the moment I walked in the home I knew this was the house!

What makes this lodge unique

I love views and being up high. The home features large decks in the front and in the back and is quiet and serene. It is a first class home with many fine touches. The unique wood carvings, the large lava rock fireplace reaching to the ceiling, the spa against the rocks, a backyard surrounded by granite rocks, all of these things captured my heart.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a very nice weekend! The cabin is amazing. All of the amenities needed were here and more. We loved the game room and hot tub! We hope to visit again next year!

Perfect nature getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This home welcomes you with a clean, fully supplied vacation. Submerged in nature, near town and easily accessible hikes. I felt cozy and at home. Highly recommend this stay for anyone who wants to get away from it all and have a home away from home!

Beautiful Cabin!!

This was by far the most luxurious cabin I’ve ever stayed in. Winding staircase and full kitchen were amazing! Definitely recommend a stay there!

Utterly relaxing!!

  • 4 of 5

This was a wonderful getaway for our family on Thanksgiving. The location is beautiful - of course. Proof of the relaxing part is that our daughter was taught how to play pool and I read a complete book! A couple of fixable things keep me from giving this a complete 5 star rating: upon arriving in the dark, there was no indication that the door knob is loose. Not being able to quickly get into the home was a bit unnerving - a situation remedied only after calling the local contact AND the owner. A few minor repairs are needed: the kitchen faucet and the downstairs bathroom door. Plus the football fans in the bunch were sad that there was absolutely no life in the TV. Like I said - easily fixable. We loved the home and would definitely return!

A fun home in a beautiful setting!

  • 5 of 5

Great home for getting that balance of relaxation and excitement. We were pleasantly surprised to be within walking distance of awesome hiking trails and then able to come back and play pool and eat popcorn before star gazing from the hot tub. We'll be back!

Spacious and a great kitchen

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this same house about 7 years ago with a group of 10 women and again this year with a group of 8. For the price you can't really go wrong and the location is excellent. Nice that it is nestled up about the street. I will say that the carpet and couch in the livingroom could definitely use a cleaning. We didn't use the spa in the backyard because it was under construction and the lid needs to be replaced. If you're looking for a comfortable, well stocked house with an attentative owner this is a great spot. The kitchen is great for making community meals and hanging out.

Nice but in need of maintenance

  • 2 of 5

The views are lovely and the inside of the facility is quite comfortable.

The exterior is in need of some TLC.

Owner's Response: Please review all the other amazing reviews. This guest arrived, then informed us he had to return home work reasons unfortunately we do not grant refunds, (this guest's experience is why we suggest travel insurance as it is not the vacation home owners responsibility to incur a loss because a guest's job or other event causes them to cancel or shorten their stay.) Thus, please draw your own conclusions.
