About Patti Sherwin

I love being a vacation home owner. I enjoy talking to potential vacationers about the cabin and what to do to have fun and relax in Idyllwild. I also own a Tax and Financial planning practice in Hemet, CA. This is my 'fun' business, everyone is always happy and looking forward to getting away from it all.

Patti Sherwin purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Patti Sherwin chose Pine Cove

I chose Idyllwild to purchase my vacation rental because I live right down the hill and can be in the snow or cooler climate in 40 minutes. With this is mind, I am always just minutes away in case my guests need me or extra attention, instructions, or just want to chat. I love the idea that Idyllwild does not have chain stores or fast food. It is a great escape close to LA, Orange, San Diego and Riverside Counties.

What makes this cabin unique

The View and the deck, is the bomb! Also, I enjoy soaking in the tub and the cabin is kid friendly. Quiet neighborhood close to the Village.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a relaxing restorative retreat! Watched fabulous Indian Wells Tennis 2 days - beautiful drive to and from too!! Joshua Tree N. Park almost mystical. It was such a blessing to come home to a cozy fire, the cool mountain air, birds chirping & feeding, beautiful sunrises & sunsets. Thank you for sharing this home!

Lovely home.

  • 4 of 5

This home was perfect for our month-long stay. The only negatives to our stay had nothing to do with the cabin or the owners. We had some noisy neighbors and on top of that they had two dogs which barked at all hours of the day which became very annoying. The owners were extremely kind and helpful, especially when we misplaced the house key, which I'm sorry about. I would stay in this house again as it was perfect for our needs.

Great cabin. Beautiful kitchen.

  • 4 of 5

This cabin is perfect for a family: 2BR, full kitchen, close to town and trails. We thoroughly enjoyed it and everything was as described. We didn't realize there was A/C until our second night, but most days you probably wouldn't need it. The only negative was that the cabin next door was rented to EXTREMELY loud young adults who really disrupted the serenity of our weekend. Nothing Patti could have done about that, though.

The cabin was just what I wanted. Fireplace, dynamic wood floors & great kitchen. The tree view was great & my cat loved sitting by sliding window doors watching all the birds & chipmunks. It was the place to read a great book also. All I needed was there. Come & enjoy it like I did.

A beautiful place to start your day!

  • 5 of 5

I really like this cabin - and I thought it was very charming before Patti did some upgrades, but now it's even better! Very nicely kept. And Patti is always responsive in a timely manner. We stayed over one of the summer's hottest weekends, and the AC was so very appreciated! I will be back....

Great cozy cabin

  • 5 of 5

I couldn't have asked for more in a cabin for the price. Definitely got more out of the cabin than I expected to for the price. Beautiful cozy home and a deck with a beautiful view. Was even woken up by woodpeckers. DefinitEly a different experience from the city bUT this getaway was just what my family needed. Thank you for the rental Patti 😊
