WELCOME HOME! My homes are unlike most rentals. I make sure to meet all of your needs and then some. In addition to being an artist/designer I worked for the Hotel Del Coronado for years so I know 5 star hospitality well. Everything is there waiting for you and anything else you may want, just ask.
Please take a look at all three of my listings, they can meet your different vacation needs! #968530, #1106622 and #1134743. I have been living in Idyllwild, working as an artist and teaching art at the local boarding high school, Idyllwild Arts Academy, for over 16 years. I started my renovation projects with my own 1955 total redesign and then wanted to share it with all of you. I love remodeling, designing and hospitality so much I decided to help others create their dream vacation rentals. I now have redesigned and manage three unique properties. I am stopping at three so I can guarantee each guest gets the personal 5 star treatment that you all deserve. I hope you feel the passion and love that went into all of these places and fall in love with their charismatic, cozy charm as much as I have. Relax, put your feet up, pour a glass of your favorite beverage and feel “home”.
This charming, bright and sunny little home is fully remodeled and designed by me, Melissa, a long time Idyllwild resident/artist/teacher. It is upscale, very clean and well stocked. This cozy little place has a post modern-industrial feel. The wood burning stove gives off the feeling of warmth and romance. There is a great side yard with lots of sun, a barbecue, and dining table or you can step into the wooded backyard for a totally different experience to relax and enjoy being completely surrounded by nature. The home works well for one to two people, two couples or a small family (including the family dog!). Yard is not fully fenced. For a fully fenced property see 968530.
IMPORTANT PLEASE NOTE: One dog is included in the rate (2 dogs max, 2nd dog is $25 extra per stay (dog rules are listed in the house rules).
This cabin is a large studio - PLUS... meaning there is a queen bed in the main room, a full size kitchen (not a kitchenette), and 3/4 bath (shower no tub). Also within the home is a space with a futon couch that converts to a twin (with a wall and closing curtain to separate the rooms).
Beautiful hikes and mountain biking from easy to difficult are close by. Walking distance (.5 miles) to Idyllwild Arts Academy - home of the Jazz in the Pines and the amazing boarding high school for the arts and the summer arts program. We are 1.5 miles to the heart of town with great restaurants, art galleries, fun bars with live music and charming little shops.
Very peaceful and quiet, close to everything (but it’s Idyllwild, everything is close!).
Walk or drive quickly anywhere in our small, quaint town.
I will work with you on earlier and late check in and out times if possible but normally check in is anytime after 3PM and check out is 11:00 AM.
Please treat our cabin with respect as you would your own home. Our town is very fragile with the drought so due to that reason we do not allow smoking on the premises. We also love dogs and are happy to share the home with your well behaved “child” (two dogs max). If your dogs can jump on the bed or sleep with you please bring your own comforter/blanket to cover the bed and remove ours. If you forgot to bring it we have one there to use. Please do not let them on the furniture. They cannot be left alone in the house or yard. Most places in town are very dog friendly so they can join you or please bring a crate if you want to leave the dog in the home. If you have children please make sure they understand to be respectful of the home and to be considerate of noise level when playing outside.
No parties please, but having some friends over to barbecue is fine. This neighborhood is very quiet and has some full time owners who would not appreciate the noise. Please observe extra quiet hours from 10 pm to 8 am.
Interaction with guests: You will have the cabin to yourself without a peep from the me unless you text, call or email for assistance from 8:00 am - 8:00 pm.

Well stocked kitchen and “on your honor” bar if you ran out or forgot something. Some wood provided free of charge to enjoy the wood burning stove.
