              Year Purchased: 1998

              About the owner: Hi! We're Bob and Loraine! We love Idyllwild! Being in the real estate field as brokers, developers and investors for over 40 years, we know a choice property when we see it... and this is one! It took us all of five minutes to decide we had to own this treasure. We've always loved the 'back country' and have owned many properties in Palm Desert, Garner Valley and a horse ranch in Anza. However our main residence is in Coastal North County San Diego. I also love planning special events and hope to develop the property to be a wedding location with the charming Gazebo. We have two dogs, a Golden Retriever (Abby) and a Llasa Apso (Maggie). Our environment has always been important to us and we've tried to create a unique atmosphere at Strawberry Corner. One that makes people feel at home and charmed all at the same time! It's the ultimate Idyllwild vacation home! There is something about Strawberry Corner that brings back memories of a sweet life, of baking pies and sitting by the fire, of feeling a part of a little town. This home gives everyone a feeling of the 'way it used to be'.... it enchants, delights, relaxes and intrigues all visitors. It just feels like 'home sweet home'. Places like this are priceless and it is our great joy to have our guests experience the same feelings we have every time we open the antique wood door with the stained glass strawberry window! This house is perfect for those who need healing, restoration, rekindling of romance in your relationship, quality family time with the kids of all ages, peace and quiet, creativity, and personal renewal!

              Why the Owner Chose Idyllwild:
              We purchased this home in 1998 when our daughter was three so we could have an authentic vacation lifestyle far from the busy cities or glitzy resorts. Idyllwild was clearly the best choice for us since it's within easy driving distance between our centers of business.... the desert, the coast and Orange County. We loved the 'Norman Rockwell' small town feeling and the darling stores, crafting, hiking and great restaurants. It's so picturesque there and so different from our home at the beach. We feel safe and secure being so close to the village and were blessed to find a home that reflects the history of Idyllwild. It's been wonderful here and we would like to share the experience with others. We love being on the creek, which is a prime location in Idyllwild. We felt this home had it all! Location! Creek! Charm! Condition!

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              We love all the seasons! In the winter it's a WINTER WONDERLAND and the snow makes for a magic we rarely get to experience. SPRING brings out the colors and the green, SUMMER is divine with sunshine and warmth! and of course the FALL is enchanting with the leaves turning and a crispness to the air. Many guests have said it's the most romantic place they've been and we've had one proposal! Just sitting around relaxing and talking after a hike or stroll into the village is so great. I hate to say it but it's really super for afternoon naps on the comfy couch too!
