Didn’t want to leave!
My boyfriend and I had the best time here! We are huge fans of Idyllwild and have been many times. This property is by far the best place we have stayed. We left kicking and screaming:)
The house is amazing. So much space! And the decks with the views was such a treat. Hiking trails are very close by and town as well. We enjoyed wandering the 5 acres and plan to go back ASAP!
Thank you Amanda! We're so glad you guys enjoyed your stay!
Come back any time. Tara and Jim
Most amazing view in Idyllwild
This is an amazing cabin with arguably the best view in all of Idyllwild. Every morning we woke up to the most gorgeous scenery out of every window, and sunsets are so beautiful they don’t even look real. The cabin itself is immaculate; the bedrooms are spacious and the linens were nice, the kitchen is new and spotless. We loved the big open living room and dining room, and the downstairs is just as pristine. The trails in the back were by far our favorite part, we had more fun exploring and trying to find all of the different paths. This cabin also had something I didn’t know we even needed, a generator! When all of the power went out in Idyllwild we were blissfully unaware because the generator had kicked in automatically and we stayed nice and warm. We used to always stay in the Fern Valley area, but now we are spoiled and will never go back. This cabin has so much space around it, you never see anyone else and you feel like you have the mountain all to yourself. It’s also conveniently close to downtown, we probably could have walked.
Thank you Amber! Come back any time! Tara and Jim
Beautiful stay in every way
We truly loved staying at Jim and Tara's beautiful house and property. It's hard to know which we enjoyed more - the house or grounds. It's even better in person than in the photos. The house has all the amenities you need to be able to cook, relax and sleep well. The guest book they have thoroughly answers any questions you might have about the house or things to do in the area. We can't wait to come back!
We're so happy you enjoyed your stay. Please come back any time!
Tara & Jim
- english, dutch
Tara is a 3rd generation Idyllwild resident, whose grandparents settled in the village in the 40s. Back in the early days of Idyllwild, they started the first grocery store, a clothing store, owned the hardware store, and the liquor store. Tara’s parents currently own and operate the historic Idyllwild Manor – one of the first vacation rentals in the village. Jim was born and raised in the Netherlands and after spending some years in New York and Washington D.C., settled in San Diego in '05. Jim started coming up to Idyllwild for mountain biking, and immediately loved the town. Now the proud owners of Sunset Acres – we are super excited to share this incredible place with you. We are avid hikers and mountain bikers and can show you or tell you about all the best trails in town. As locals, we also know all the best restaurants, concerts, shops, etc. Just ask!!
Why Owner chose Idyllwild
One of a kind custom home designed by architect David Lilieholm. While the house is amazing, the location makes it spectacular. With emphasis on site-specificity in design, the home was developed working with the natural features of the landscape in a way that enhances the opportunity to appreciate both the interior environment and the outside spaces.
What makes this House unique
The views. We're not kidding. All guests including some of our local Idyllwild friends are amazed when they see the place. There are views from all sides. Every room has a balcony or deck. Then the property with all the private trails- you can easily go for an hour long hike in the back yard.
