Great stay in the mountains
The six of us loved this home in the mountains. Because the weather was surprisingly cold for the Memorial Day weekend, we spent almost all of our time in the house. Great kitchen, great room and a surprise was the theater room. One quirk was the third bedroom/theater room. It's a great room acting as a third bedroom and it works, save for the bathroom access. We were all family, so for us it worked fine, but say for three couples sharing the place, might be a little more difficult. We loved the place though and would certainly return.
Great mountain getaway
Shelly's cabin on the mountain was exactly what we expected. It feels very secluded and hidden in the woods but is right off of a main road.
The hot tub, fireplaces and big screen in the basement all made this a very luxurious escape. Also, Shelly was very responsive to e-mails and quick with suggestions about places to eat and things to do in the area.
One word of caution... There are two ways into the house. The most direct way off the main road does require a couple of tight turns. We did fine in a Jeep Cherokee but I wouldn't suggest anything larger. You can always park at the base of the house but this requires going up a few flights of stairs.
We would absolutely stay here again if in the area and it was available!
Great family getaway
The hot tub was amazing, it snowed so we got lucky and used the sleds (thanks for supplying those) theater room -the kids watched movies but were too scared to sleep down there. Popcorn machine was a nice bonus!
Master bedroom / bathroom was really nice.
We loved the ultimate fancy version of the clue game- I want one!!!! We played it numerous times. We used the record player and listened to old music- loved it.
Very secluded with lots of privacy from the outside world. But inside very open - I would recommend only coming with close family or friends.
This was a great family getaway
We had such a great time in Shelly's cabin. Close to town, spacious and homey. Shelly took the time to decorate is so cute for us with Christmas tree and Christmas light. Super quick to respond to any questions we had. Shelly even left us a bottle of her home made wine to welcome us!
Wonderful cabin, very private, great vacation.
The cabin is on a steep slope, so the front deck, with its breakfast table, hot tub and hammocks, is built around granite boulders and oak trees. It's like you're dining or relaxing in the shade in the middle of the woods, watching birds, squirrels and chipmunks while drinking your coffee or wine. There's also a lower deck that's excellent for star-gazing.
The cabin is decorated beautifully. The upstairs master bedroom is gorgeous, especially the shower and tub area. There's a large second bedroom suite on the ground floor that's very cozy and private. We didn't use the downstairs media room, which is kind of dark, but kids would love sleeping and hanging out there.
There's a short drive into the village, and the nearby Idyllwild Nature Center has good trails and views plus convenient parking. Lots of other places to hike in the area. It was the perfect spot to get away from the city and back into nature—completely restorative after a busy work year!
The hosts are exceptionally responsive and went out of their way to make sure our trip worked out just as we hoped and planned.
One caution: be VERY careful entering the property from the main road above. You make a tight turn from the driveway through the gate, and there's a low boulder that's difficult to see from the car and unfortunately easy to scrape against on your way in or out. But don't let this stop you from booking—this was my second vacation here, and I will definitely be back again!
Perfect family cabin
We had a great time! Can't wait to go back! The cabin is perfect and the owner was awesome.
