Property description

The idyllwild bungalow is decorated in the style of the arts and crafts period. We like to call it 'the stickley cabin', after the famous maker of arts and craft style furniture.
It is in the fern valley section of idyllwild, which means that it is lovely, close to town while feeling miles away.
The large yard means you'll feel a real sense of privacy and serenity.
Appropriate for 1 or 2 couples. Warm, inviting, calm. One bedroom, one large bath, a fireplace, a deck, and dog friendly. There is a bonus room (rented spring through fall only) with a fold out bed.
We have a CD/record/tape player, an ipod dock, board games and books.When we rent, we also provide a 'renter's handbook' with additional info about the cabin, the neighborhood, and local activities. We are always adding to this handbook to make it as informative and helpful as possible.

So many reasons to visit The Idyllwild Bungalow in Idyllwild!

1) Our yard shows all the changes of the seasons! Fall color (the oak trees on our property turn bright yellow and orange), Snow in the Winter, (we are on a well maintained road, so you can enjoy the snow without the hassle), flowers in the Spring, (the yard is carpeted with blue Lupine flower) the sun in Summer...(and everything so green)!

2. Nature: We've spotted cotton tailed rabbits, squirrels, chipmunks, bluejays and woodpeckers on our property; we've seen deer wandering casually just blocks away.

3. Good Coffee! We've got a cappuccino maker in the cabin, and excellent coffee, breakfast, lunch, dinner, drinks & dessert at restaurant within walking distance (Cafe Aroma) (A leisurely walk there - with dogs - takes about 15 minutes).

4. Idyllwild has a Jazz Festival, a Film Festival, and an active arts scene, as well as a movie theater showing newly released films. We're happy to help you with whatever you may be interested in.

5. Walking. We live in a great walking neighborhood. You can stay on fairly level ground (walking roughly north/south) OR you can get a nice mini workout walking the hilly areas (roughly east/west).

6. Hiking. Our cabin is very close to the trail head at Humber Park, and to the Ernie Maxwell Scenic Trail (an easier hike).

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We are a pair of psychologists who love to travel. One of us spent childhood summers in Idyllwild. I didn't return as an adult until 2013....I was concerned the village might not be as magical as I recalled, and was happy to find that it was still magical! We love that the town is very friendly. It has something for everyone: Art, film, and music festivals; hiking trails both easy and challenging; rock climbing; and close to the Pacific Coast Trail.

Why the Owner Chose Idyllwild:
We have an apartment in Buenos Aires (see VRBO 165043) we've happily been renting to travelers on VRBO since 2006, and have 5 star ratings. We thought it would be fun to have a property closer to home that we could share with travelers. After looking at several cabins, this one was an instantaneous 'yes!'. The cabin (vintage 1940s) was charming, the yard was large and flat, the neighborhood was lovely yet convenient to town, and the views of the mountains were amazing! We've done several upgrades - most importantly, forced air heating! - and plan more, including adding another deck.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We loved the vintage feel of the home, and have thoroughly enjoyed adding 'arts and crafts' period touches. These include stickley style furniture, period artwork, vintage jadeite; and period light fixtures. We have really enjoyed the idiosyncratic touches that make this one of a kind, such as a hard to describe ipod dock.
