About Doug Pumphrey
Doug is a retired US Forest Service employee, so the community's emphasis on the forest was a good match for me! both of us. My late wife and daughter lived in this house for 9 years while Doug was US Forest Service District Ranger and I still know many local residents here, and extensive knowledge of the area and its special charms. I have used vacation rentals in other parts of the world and decided that my place was a wonderful area to share with others, just as others have shared with me, whether here in the US or abroad. I am happy to answer any questions you may have, and to welcome you to this little corner of paradise. Come and enjoy!
Doug Pumphrey purchased this Cabin in 1981
Why Doug Pumphrey chose Fern Valley
While I lived here, I realized the special benefits of this great environment and the wonderful people who live here, and everyone's efforts to keep it that way. I look forward to sharing my piece of paradise with you.
What makes this Cabin unique
We love the fact that the cabin is cozy and at the same time gives the feeling of openness. It is very airy and bright. The day we walked in, the first comment we made was, 'Oooo, we like!!' Through the years, we have had wonderful conversations on the wrap-around deck, especially in the summer evenings, but year around as well. In completing the remodel of our place, we've made every effort to make the cabin comfortable and modern, yet compatible with the feeling that is essentially Idyllwild. We love to take walks around the area and just enjoy the peace, but equally enjoy the local concerts and events, as well as the Cable TV, Wi-Fi, and other amenities of the cabin. There are level streets in the neighborhood which make a good walking or jogging route, and the house is completely accessible in winter. Idyllwild Arts provides great concerts and is only a short drive away (please contact them for concert schedules). You can find wonderful restaurants, unique shops, and An abundance of nature related activities here. I enjoy meeting and greeting our guests whenever possible. After all, strangers are only friends I have not yet met!

This was a lovely cabin that was clean and updated and well supplied. We loved it
Great Weekend Getaway
I had a great stay at this property with my husband and 2 year old. The house was exactly what I was expecting from the pictures. It was very close to all the downtown restaurants and shops. I would definitely stay again.
LOVE THIS CABIN!
So much thought and love put into this cabin. This is our second time staying in Doug's cabin, and we will certainly be back. The beds are super comfy and we really enjoyed the tea that was generously left for guests. Perfect location for hiking up the mountain. The deck is awesome. It's very, very clean!
Quiet get away
We are regulars at this house and we love it. Quiet with a wonderful deck to enjoy the outdoors. Scenery is perfect. The house is remodeled and well taken care of. Definitely a recommended place for couples and/or families! Walking distance to town, as well! Definitely will continue to stay here!
Weekend at Idyllwild
Doug’s place is beautiful and he is a very warm and accommodating host. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and built some great memories.
The cabin was perfect, and beyond our expectations! Doug was a wonderful and helpful host! We hope to stay again.
The cabin is in beautiful Fern Valley, 1 mile from Humber Park, location of many major trailheads, and about 2 miles from several other trails and the unique shops and restaurants in the center of town. Peaceful, private, and serene, it is a wonderful place for a romantic stay for two, a friends' getaway, small group retreat, business planning sessions, fun with the family, you name it! We are on a paved road which is plowed when it snows. If you don't know where something is, please ask. Desert communities, San Diego, Orange County, and Los Angeles are all within easy reach. The Idyllwild Arts facility is close by. There is also wine tasting in Idyllwild and Temecula (about 1 hour away).
