About the Property
House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 7-9)
-- Sierra Club Founder John Muir (1838-1914)
Finnish design. Finnish logs. Finnish built. Live the Log Home dream...
Old world tradition meets modern-day comforts at Casa Finlandia, a custom-designed four-bedroom, two and a half-bathroom log home in the San Jacinto mountains that is rustic yet elegant, quaint yet grand, sturdy yet charming.
Two full-length balconies provide the perfect setting for entertaining while enjoying the beautiful sunsets overlooking the dense oak and pine forest and the rugged San Jacinto mountain range. The quiet home is perfectly situated between two cul-de-sacs a short walk away from downtown Idyllwild and the Idyllwild Arts school.
The two-story, nearly 2400-square-foot Honka log home contains numerous amenities, including a two-car attached garage, a bright and roomy kitchen, spectacular views from both floors, a towering wood-burning fireplace and cathedral ceilings.
Casa Finlandia’s dining room abuts both the great room and the kitchen, creating an open and airy floor plan. The great room has three tall, nearly floor-to-ceiling windows. On a clear day, the Pacific Ocean sparkles in the distant view. A view of Lake Diamond is much closer. The kitchen includes KitchenAid stainless steel appliances, slab granite countertops and custom-made Alder wood cabinetry.
The main level features the great room, dining room and kitchen, master bedroom and bathroom, a second bedroom that may be converted into a small office or den. This level also has a half-bathroom off the foyer, the attached 515-square-foot garage, a balcony and a wide front porch.
The lower level features two bedrooms, each with a walk-in closet, a full bathroom, laundry facilities, space for a wine cellar or extra storage, a family room and the second balcony that, like the upper balcony, runs the length of the home.
Maple hardwood floors cover the main floor, while Berber carpet on the lower level will keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. The home has custom paint and many design details, such as copper capping on logs and balcony posts.
Each room on the main level has exposed log work featuring Honka logs direct from Finland. The Finnish builder took great care in building Casa Finlandia, evidenced in the many extras, such as wood detail and tiled bathrooms.
Six windows in the great room allow for plenty of sunlight. Enjoy perfect temperatures all year round with forced air and heat.

Year Purchased: 2008
About: Owners are all from Scandinavia, which is why the cabin is built from imported Finish logs from Honka. We have lived in California for most of our life's and wanted a getaway in the mountains to remind us of home.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Total relaxation, crackling fireplace, majestic views... We go here to unwind and relax, and for lovely romantic getaways. Idyllwild is such a romantic little mountain town, with a surprising number of yearly events. Restaurants are good, and eating amidst the pines watching the squirrels of unusual size (SOUS) is just lovely.
