Relaxing and clean cabin

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was even better than expected! The new wood floors and new kitchen are quite nice. Even the rooms that haven’t been updated are still clean and comfortable, including the bathroom (a big deal to me). Lots of dishware in the kitchen too, to help in cooking. There are neighbors close all around the cabin, but it’s quiet and the view from the back porch is peaceful. Would rent again.

Fantastic cabin, terrific owner, can't wait to return!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this little gem. Upon arrival was a bit worried because lots of neighbors were very close to the home on the driveway side, but once in the cabin and out on the back deck you got the privacy you the neighborhood was silent... so quiet and peaceful! Perks here that other cabins don't have: cable tv, upgraded appliances, super comfy master mattress, pets (even cats!) welcomed, the hot water and water pressure...omg..., fantastic wood stove (way better than just fireplace), plenty of kitchen pans and such, hairdryer (you just don't understand how imp this is to girls in winter! Lol). We loved it at Pattis. We can't wait to return!!

Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was easy to get to with the Waze application. Once on the property the instructions provided by Patti were very easy to enter the cabin. The cabin is very clean and I was able to see their was pride of ownership with this property. The kitchen and appliance look brand new along with the floors. We got to the cabin at 11pm so it was about 50 F or less in the cabin. I turned on the heat, but didn’t realize the thermostat batteries were dying, so the heat didn’t kick in until the I replaced the batteries the following morning with the remote control batteries. I would recommend bringing firewood and a lighter with you to avoid delays in getting heat from the wood burning oven. Once on this made the cabin a comfortable 80 F and we even turned off the heater. Overall this place is a perfect location from the Town, about 3 miles and 2 miles from the nature center. I will definitely use this cabin for future trips. Patti was responsive via email and let me know where additional batteries were.

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.

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!
