Happy Trails has The Location--location--location--if you're into hiking, mountain biking, walking with your dog, visiting the town center, or just enjoying all the surrounding forest has to offer, Happy Trails Cabin with its western-themed ambiance is the place to be. Literally steps (about 20, to be exact) to two main trail heads, just park your car at the cabin, and you're off! Not into hiking? A short half-mile stroll puts you in the center of Idyllwild and its shops, galleries, restaurants, and activities (check out Idyll-a-while Wine Tasting--a favorite hangout--and they even let cowboys in). You'll enjoy a king-sized bed in the master, 4 bunkbeds in the second bedroom, a full bath, living room with cozy fireplace, and a real cook's kitchen. Step outside the french doors to a rear spacious deck, overlooking a completely privacy-fenced yard for your kids and pets. Out front you'll find a second gated deck where you'll relax under even more towering cedars. The adjacent county park is a favorite place with locals to walk their dogs or take a bike ride (Note: Day use fees may apply). The huge park meadow is viewable from your kitchen window and offers magnificent views of Idyllwild's iconic Lilly rock. Enter further into the park and you'll find Indian petraglyphs preserved and protected by the park. In winter, the sledding and toboggan runs of the park are an easy walk from your temporary home--no need to drive anywhere. Hit the trail in another direction and you'll arrive at Idyllwild's Nature Center--a fun place for both kids and adults to learn about Idyllwild. The Nature Center pass you will find in the cabin gives you free admission to the Center, all of their hiking trails, plus a discount in their gift shop. When your day of enjoying the outdoors is over, you'll relax in a home that features his and hers leather recliners, bar height seating between kitchen and living room in addition to sit-down kitchen table seating, and a comfortable couch that also makes up into a bed. There's a flat screen TV and DVD player over the fireplace, another in the master and free WiFi for those who just have to check their email. If you like to cook, we've got you covered -- the beautiful kitchen is completely stocked with small appliances, dishes, utensils, spices, staples, etc.
Happy Trails is owned by a cowboy and his favorite gal, but even if you're a total city-slicker, we aim to make all our guests feel completely at home and comfortable with our warm western decor and hospitality...Here's wishing you all many happy trails!

About Kathy Styles
We live on a small horse ranch in Fallbrook and enjoy the company of a dog, a cat, chickens, and horses. Idyllwild is a great, close-by getaway for us and we love to visit our home often.
Kathy Styles purchased this Cabin in 2012
Why Kathy Styles chose Idyllwild-Pine Cove
We bought our first cabin in Idyllwild in 2003. We added Happy Trails just recently, as a way of offering a different experience to our guests. White Horse Cabin is the horse-lovers' dream. Happy Trails is the hikers' dream. Both great places, just different appeal.
What makes this Cabin unique
This home's proximity to trails is unbeatable--no driving necessary. Easy/medium/difficult hikes, all just steps from the deck, and yet a walk to town is only a half-mile stroll. The County Park proximity is fabulous--lots of open space, history, the expertise of the rangers, and the Nature Center close by; the park is utilized almost exclusively by tent campers -- very few motor homes, and the campsites are all out of site of our home; so our neighbors are people who appreciate nature as much as you do.--love that!

We loved this cabin and would definitely stay again. Very clean, quiet and private location, yet walking distance to town. And easy hiking/walking trails right outside the door.
Great place to stay.
We enjoyed our stay at Happy Trails Cabin. It was very quiet and relaxing. Our dog loved the backyard and having trails right outside was great too. Idyllwild was within walking distance. We loved the small town feel of Idyllwild. We will look to rent this cabin on our next visit to Idyllwild.
Great location, hiking or shopping very convenient
Of all the cabins we've rented, this one has the closest access to hiking trails - literally right outside the door. Park ranger is a moment's walk away and very friendly. The cabin is not necessarily large, but never felt small to our family of four. Maybe it's the high ceilings. Water gets hot promptly in the shower/sink. There was almost no noise from the road. Host was always responsive, and we'd certainly come here again.
Thanks for the kind words. So glad you enjoyed your stay. That's exactly what we love about this place too--small and cozy, park the car and leave it. Hope to accommodate you in the future.
Adorable cabin with a great location!
We thoroughly enjoyed staying at the Happy Trails Cabin. The heating system is wonderful, the kitchen is clean with a nice range of appliances. We loved sitting out on the porch and watching birds in the field across from the house. We made use of the nature pass for the county park multiple times in order to hike on the many trails and visit the nature center. Our two dogs loved the fenced backyard for off-leash time, and hiking on the dog friendly trails in the park. The house is walking distance to town. We didn't need our car for the entire stay. We recommend this location!
Good, Clean, Warm
It was just as described, Good value, well positioned, cozy property.
We stayed for four nights at this lovely little cabin. We didn't get in the car the whole time because it was so easy to walk either to town or to hike the local trails. The cabin has a very serviceable kitchen and is generally very comfortable. I would strongly recommend to anyone looking for a cozy stay in a beautiful place.
So glad you enjoyed your stay. Hope to accommodate you in the future. Thanks, Kathy
