Idyllwild is a quaint mountain community, offering an endless array of activities to suit everyone's needs. Hiking, rock climbing, biking, horseback riding, antiquing, shopping, pottery painting, great restaurants, Fourth of July Parade, a Jazz Fest in August, summer music concerts at the Park, theatre, art galleries, and fun in the snow are just some of the '101' things to do in Idyllwild.
The Village Shopping and dining are favorite pastimes of our guests. A pleasant stroll through the village takes you past many unique storefronts. Shops offer one of a kind gifts, antiques and all varieties of Idyllwild mementos. Art Galleries abound in our Idyllwild village area, including ceramics, sculpture, paintings, photography, and wood works.
Dining is always a wonderful experience in Idyllwild. Ranging from a quick sandwich at one of our delis to an elegant dinner, you can find what you are looking for in the village. Choose from Classic American, Country, Mexican, Italian, Chinese, German, or Greek!
The Rustic Theater provides an evening of movie fun, with one screen showing a first run movie. Outdoor concerts provide fun music in the village on occasional weekday evenings throughout the summer. Our many service organizations offer old-fashioned Pancake Breakfasts at our Town Hall on many summer Sundays. Outdoor activities are a wonderful way to enjoy the beautiful San Jacinto Mountains!
Idyllwild's wilderness offers over 275 miles of hiking trails. Choose from the easy Ernie Maxwell Scenic Trail for the novice hiker, or perhaps a more challenging hike to Tahquitz peak, Long Valley, or the top of the Palm Springs Tramway. Snow brings a new set of adventures to our visitors, whether it's a gentle walk in the snow or an exciting day sledding, everyone loves the winters in Idyllwild.
Lake Hemet and Lake Fulmor are stocked with trout and await visiting fisherman.
Rock Climbing brings many adventurers to Idyllwild. Tahquitz and Suicide Rocks offer numerous routes for beginning as well as experienced climbers.
Mountain Biking offers another way for visitors to enjoy our beautiful mountain and valley areas. Mountain Bikers frequent the Ernie Maxwell Scenic Trail as well as trails in the nearby Garner Valley area.

About the owner: Location, location, location — My husband and I fell in love with this beautiful property the moment we first saw it. We named it Boulder Creek Cottage because of its unique features. Living close by allows us to attend to the needs of our guests should it become necessary. Since we are local, we deal with our guests directly — from key exchanges, to cleaning, to repairs, and anything in between. Our property is fully furnished and has all the amenities of home! We take pride in our property and look forward to accommodating your stay. Larry & Kendra Van Liew (owners)
Why the Owner Chose Idyllwild: Our cottage is located up against the national forest and offers a secluded and quiet retreat for our guests. Being the last property on the street just adds to the mountain ambiance and privacy. It is not uncommon to see deer on our property.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: Boulder Creek Cottage is a quiet, clean, cozy, secluded retreat situated up against the San Bernardino National Forrest. This is a perfect getaway for a few days to allow one to breath in the mountain air, enjoy the wildlife, hiking, rock climbing, biking, horseback riding, antiquing, shopping, or to just rest, renew, restore and reconnect. Our cottage provides a wonderful mountain ambiance, yet with all the modern conveniences. Whether used as a romantic honeymoon venue, a fun-filled family retreat, or just a cozy getaway, we think you will love our cottage.
