Property description

Woodsy Cabin Getaway on Strawberry Creek 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
Idyllwild's Best Mountain Cabin on the creek, easy walking distance to town (5 minutes by creek trail or 15 minutes by street). Nestled amongst 100 pine and oak trees Brooksong has the woodsy charm you come to Idyllwild for. Custom built with beautiful wood throughout and skylights in tall ceilings, with a large beautiful deck overlooking the creek and another deck off the master bedroom you will feel refreshed and like you really got away from it all.

Fish for trout, walk to the Village or relax in the swinging hammock seats on a lazy summer afternoon or cuddle up inside with a fire blazing in the wood stove on a wintry day.....while the 'chef' of your group creates gastronomic delights on the Wolff Stainless Oven/Range ....It doesn't get any better!!

If you like to cook, this is the best equipped kitchen on the Hill. Every kitchen appliance and gadget you can name is here plus a full selection of cookbooks for every appetite. Plenty of room to create and serve something in style. Come and get it! Just added a top of the line barbecue grill (propane) for your outdoor pleasure.

Ideally designed to Sleep 4 Adults 2 Children (2 queen beds and 2 singles). Upstairs 'kids room' shares a bathroom with the 'master bedroom' both of which are open loft style rooms.

The cabin has a natural cabin feeling because everything is wood. Even the cabinet handles are Manzanita branches. Very tall beam ceilings, long windows and skylights give a wide open feeling. The decks were built by a renowned local deck builder.

Over 100 trees are happily growing here. Between the house and the creek is a meadow of strawberry bushes.

Besides the 'master' bedroom upstairs under the skylight, there is a great loft bedroom room for 2 kids. Their closet is full of games and toys and things to do, like puzzles. There is another room and 3/4 bath downstairs (privacy) with a queen bed for one or two. For the whole family there is a huge library of over 200 movies to watch.

There are lots more photos to send you if you like. Just email me and I'll email the photos to you.

You can walk to town in 5 - 10 minutes. Less than a mile. Take the creekside path for a shortcut if you want. Brooksong is a magical place that you will want to return to year after year. One of the most favorite cabins in Idyllwild.

Brooksong is too pristine for pooch and is kept non-allergic - sorry. Thanks.

Why Idyllwild:
Guest reviews: 12/17/12 Jon: 'Great get away. Brooksong is a peaceful and fun retreat. My wife our girls and Nana had a wonderful 4 day vacation. Just staying at the cabin is good enough but we had a fun time hiking, exploring the creek, building snow men, following animal tracks in the snow, taking photos of the beautiful nature surrounding, taking in the peaceful woods, playing games inside (provided) sitting by the fire, star gazing, fixing great meals in the fully stocked kitchen, watching movies (provided) going to town and site seeing and shopping and just reading and relaxing in the authentic and comfortable cabin! This was our 2nd time here-next year #3!! Recommended for: Girls Getaway, Sightseeing, Families with Teenagers, Romantic Getaway' Kaila K. 7/25/12 wrote: 'Excellent. I can't say enough about how absolutely fantastic this cabin is! This is my second time staying at Brooksong and it seems like each time I stay, the place just gets better. It's got all the amenities you could possibly want, and the access to Strawberry Creek is fantastic. You are totally out in the forest, but can easily follow the Creek up into town (just a short hike) - great location. The owner of the cabin was amazingly wonderful to work with and you can tell from staying there that Brooksong is not just a 'vacation rental place,' but it is the owner's vacation home, and it shows in all the little touches. The outdoor decks are mind blowing and super comfy; the indoor space has plenty of interesting things to occupy one's time, from comfortable beds and bathrooms to a well stocked video library, book library, game library and even a wonderful kid's play area under the stairs, complete with toddler appropriate toys and baby gate for the bottom of the stairs.' M. Banks: 3/22/13 'We rent cabins and condos quite a bit and for the first time we didn't have to get our 'cabin kit' out. It's easy to tell that the owners stay here and it's not just a forgotten investment.'

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
This is pure heaven on earth.
