! HIGHLIGHTS ! Our cabin is short 5 minute drive to downtown Idyllwild, with access to many restaurants and shops, as well as a brand new amazing playground structure at the town’s community center. It is an even shorter drive to the Idyllwild Nature Center, which offers an indoor interactive area for kids, many great hikes and picnic areas in the summer and great sledding in the winter. Humber Park is also nearby, which has hiking in the summer and great sledding in the winter (it tends to be about 15 degrees colder here so always bring some warm clothing!). The Idyllwild community is known for the arts. There is the annual Jazz in the Pines Festival the last weekend in August, as well as many other art and nature oriented events throughout the year.
Idyllwild is about an hour away from Palm Springs and Palm Desert, 1 hour from the Lake Perris State Recreation Area (swimming, boating, hunting, rock climbing, etc.), and 15 minutes to Lake Hemet.

About the owner: We are a family of four from San Diego who have always wanted a cabin in the mountains to call our own. We have two little girls who love to run and play outside and whom we look forward to raising to love the outdoors as we do. We enjoy the small town feel of Idyllwild and love to hike and play in the snow. We look forward to sharing our vacation home and this great 'on the hill' experience with others!
Why the Owner Chose Idyllwild: This log cabin was previously owned by a family who raised their children for over 20 years in Idyllwild. It was their home and very cherished and well cared for. We were honored to buy it from them and have a place for our little girls to enjoy and grow up going to as well. It is a spacious log home with a huge property to run, play, and hike on. There are breathtaking western views and it is in close proximity to town with a far-away feel.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: We provide many ammenities, including a huge digital video library. We also offer two KING bedrooms, which is a rare find on the hill.
