Naughty Pines is a quiet, private 2 bedroom, 1.5 bathroom cabin located on the edge of Pine Cove, CA, just a short drive and higher elevation from the town of Idyllwild.

The newly expanded deck is now twice as large, and takes advantage of the treetop and valley views, and features a gas grill, dining table, and lounge chairs.

On the main floor, the cabin features a fully-equipped kitchen, laundry room, dining area, living room with fireplace and flat screen TV, DVD Player, WiFi, stereo with bluetooth streaming and iphone connection. The living room sliding glass door opens up to the newly expanded private outdoor deck .

Also downstairs is the master bedroom with en suite bathroom and a powder room in the main hallway.

Upstairs, there is a loft with comfy leather chair and desk and an additional bedroom with a large, over-sized dormer window to take in the forever views.

Out back, there are several small, quiet sitting areas that overlook a small seasonal creek and treetop views.. where you can watch the squirrels and birds roam through the forest.

About Paul Zapala

We live in Palm Springs and love coming up to Idyllwild. We didn't intend on buying a cabin, but when we saw this one come on the market, we couldn't resist. Perfect combination of peace and quite, views and privacy.

Paul Zapala purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Paul Zapala chose Idyllwild-Pine Cove

This is an ideal location at the end of the street. It has great views, is very private, and isn't in a crowded area of cabins. Being the last house on the street and with a strong slope to the next lot, you don't have a house in the view's way.

What makes this cabin unique

This is the ultimate getaway for those that want to check out and just enjoy some peaceful mountain air and scenery. You relax the minute you step on the deck. Put some bird seed in the bird feeder and watch the wildlife around you.

Even better than the photos and description

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a great stay at Naughty Pines. We were only there a few days, but we will for sure be coming back in the future. The cabin was perfect for us and our 2 dogs! Very relaxing and had more than everything we needed. Paul has done a great job setting up the cabin for guests. Everything is explained perfectly. The entire house is labeled so you literally know what everything is. The thing that impressed us the most was how clean the cabin was. Our favorite thing about Naught Pines was the abundance of sitting areas in and outside the house. Great nooks to sit and read or enjoy a glass of wine. Thanks so much Paul!

68th Birthday Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Thanks to Paul and James for a wonderful quite weekend at Naughty Pines. This has to be one of California's best kept secrets around. The cabin is located at the end of the street and the views are great. This cabin is nestled in the trees so you have many birds and squirrels to watch. They also look froward to nuts that we always buy at the local market. We even saw a small bob cat one morning. Our dogs love to take long walks in the woods and had a great time on the newly expanded deck over looking the forest.

Once again, it was a good time by all! We look forward to our next trip in the forest.

What a great mountain get-a-way

  • 5 of 5

We are regular visitors to Idyllwild and Pine-Cove and always enjoy these serenity of this cabin. Everything is always perfect. Plenty to do nearby and a perfectly furnished home.

The cabin is at the end of the street and has great views off the deck to the west for wonderful sunset viewing. Awesome fireplace, well stocked kitchen and the kind of amenities that make a visit that much more comfortable.

Thanks as always for a great stay!

Every detail thought of, beautiful setting, fantastic end-of-the-road solitude, sublime serenity

  • 5 of 5

We are repeat renters...and we absolutely love how Paul treats his guests. Every little detail is taken care of from a helpful book with details on the, stereo, tv, washer drier, heaters, fireplace, and numerous other helpful tips. The home is very well stocked with everything you could possibly need to a flashlight, binoculars, extra batteries, rolls and rolls of paper towels, kitchen appliances, barware, extra heaters and fans, firewood, a hammock....I could go on. It's the little things you don't think to bring and you say, "I wonder if they have _____?" And then you find it in a drawer and say, "Of course they do!"

My one and only suggestion: We were in need of a bottle stopper. A little flip-top mechanical cork would be awesome! Or, just a few extra corks. I was surprised he didn't have one! :-) :-)

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review.. and the great suggestion of a bottle stopper! I can't believe we don't have one up there.. maybe we finish every bottle we open :-) Thanks for being a repeat guest, and thanks for the great review. We look forward to seeing you back soon!

Naughty Pines Stay Dec 15-17, 2017

  • 5 of 5

We totally enjoyed our stay at Naughty Pines - the cabin is very neat / clean and had absolutely everything we needed in the kitchen which is not always the case with rental properties! Also, the fact that it is dog friendly was a big plus for us. The bird watching on the deck provided endless enjoyment for us throughout the weekend. Will definitely be back!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay at Naughty Pines! We like to cook when we are at the cabin, so we always try to make sure the kitchen is well stocked (along with a martini shaker and plenty of wine glasses). Bird watching is amazing this time of year, and we always try to keep the bird feeder full for our guests. We hope to see you back at Naughty Pines soon!
