Idyllcreek A-Frame Vacation Cabin - Walk to Town! and very secluded. Call or Text 760-275-4426 with questions, Owner managed, quick response.

Nestled in the cool woods of Southern California’s San Jacinto mountains, at the very end of scenic Boulder Drive, Idyllcreek is the perfect Idyllwild vacation cabin for the get-away you’ve been dreaming of.

This original 1960’s A-frame cabin is every bit as charming and serene as it looks. With 1250 square feet, Idyllcreek sleeps 4-8 people (1 king, 1 queen, 1 full bed (convertible futon) and 1 inflatable areo bed). If your group is larger than Idyllcreek can accommodate we have a second cabin that is less than 1/4 mile away.

Inside the cabin, you’ll love the wood burning fireplace, fun spiral staircase, and wireless internet (because even a rustic getaway should be convenient). Idyllcreek also features 1.5 baths, and has 2 patios so you can enjoy this beautiful wooded backdrop to the fullest.

Idyllcreek gets is name from Idyllwild, California, which is just a short walk from the cabin, as well as the seasonal stream that runs on the property.

Walk or drive into town and you’ll find that Idyllwild is rich in small-town atmosphere and has something for everyone. Downtown Idyllwild offers excellent dining of all stripes and an assortment of fine shops, boutiques, and galleries—not to mentioning a thriving arts community full of music festivals, art shows, and movie theatre.

If your ideal getaway involves unplugging and getting out into the fresh mountain air, just head “up the hill.” There are plenty of opportunities for activities like hiking and camping, rock climbing and mountain biking, all within close distance of Idyllcreek cabin.

And vacation is, above all else, time to relax. Idyllcreek isn’t just a charming Idyllwild rental cabin on a picturesque, secluded, woodsy lot—it’s also a good 20-30 degrees cooler than the surrounding valleys during summer! Imagine sipping your morning coffee on the patio before you head out seeking fun activities and events. With daylight fading through the trees, enjoy good conversation, tired from a full day of hiking and browsing an art fair. Then settle into this quiet, peaceful cabin for a full night of deep sleep.

With such a great combination of nature’s beauty and peaceful seclusion, plus great outdoor activities and charming small-town discoveries and events, it’s no surprise that Idyllcreek is a favorite of so many, some from California and some from across the country. Idyllwild, California, vacation rentals give families, couples, and friends the chance to get away, relax, and spend some great time together. And Idyllcreek is one of the best.

So if you’re ready to head down to the shaded A-frame cabin at the end of Boulder Drive for a day, weekend, or week of peace, Idyllcreek is ready to welcome you.

From the guestbook:



This was our first time to Idyllcreek. It was a surprise trip from my amazing girlfriend :) for my birthday. I don't know how she found this place or anyone else for that matter. I'm glad she did! Quiet & peaceful, great place to relax and be with nature. The cabin was clean & perfect for the occasion.



Can't wait for our next adventure here....Thank you!

We stayed 3 nights and enjoyed our little vacation. It's not extremely secluded as one might think from the picture. There are some neighbors within view, but we didn't really see or hear anybody much at all during our stay. If you're looking for a property tucked way back and totally secluded then this isn't exactly that, but great enough for a few nights.

The interior is more spacious than it appears from the outside photos. We made fires in the fireplace every day, but the central heat worked very well when needed. A small bundle of kindling was provided in the house, but we couldn't find any additional by the wood pile so I ripped my own. I also found a California Tiger Salamander hiding nearby. The BBQ worked well, but the drip pan could use a cleaning.

We cooked most meals in the kitchen. The pots, pans and utensils provided came in very handy as did some left behind spices and seasonings. We had some minor issues with the burners on the range, but I'm hopeful the owner will correct the problem. It rained one day so we decided to hop in the spa. It was very clean and well treated. The pool service actually came the morning of so I was glad to see attention to detail. The patio firepit was out of propane when we arrived and I didn't realize there was possibly an extra tank in the locked cellar room (should have read the welcome info more thoroughly). The TV/cable service and WiFi worked well. Make sure the stereo receiver is set to SA not SAT/CAB.

A few little areas could use a bit more cleaning, such as the ceiling light covers. The kitchen drawers are a bit sticky. The upstairs toilet seat was very loose. It was a little inconvenient to have to lock the front door from the inside and walk out the back door and around to the front. I would suggest adding an additional electronic door lock to the front so as to avoid this.

Town is but a 15 minute walk down the road and to the right. There are many quaint shoppes to wander through. There's also a well stocked market on the far end of town that provides some great grass fed meats and other Organic selections.

Perfect R&R

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful setting! The owners are thoughtful and quickly responsive. We enjoyed resting at the cabin as well as hiking the trails. Slept very well and were able to prepare wonderful meals to share on the pleasant deck.

Winter Relaxation in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

Idyllcreek provided us a few cozy nights for our first visit to Idyllwild. We hiked the Deer Springs trail and walked to town as the cabin is so close and handy. And yet surrounded by the woods. I never tired of staring out the windows at the trees.

Kelly was really helpful, reachable, and attentive to our having an enjoyable stay.

Beautiful setting, great hosts

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was as shown in the pictures. The downstairs bathroom was nice pressure and warm when you put the heater on. Very nice. Everything worked great, kitchen was stocked, beds were comfortable. The futon my son slept on wasn't so comfy so he slept on couch which was great. The upstairs bathroom could use an update but worked and did the job. The location was great!! Just a quick 7 minute walk to town, flat...

Great place to stay but would recommend for a smaller family. Great hosts and they were very attentive and helpful. Great books and games selection as well!~ Would go back for sure. Idyllwild is beautiful

Magic Vacation Cabin in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

If you look at this cabin online and think it can't possibly be as good in person as it looks online, you're wrong! It's even better. It really is like staying in a friends home, everything you could think of has been provided. Well stocked spices and kitchen utensils/cookware. The bedding is so comfortable, it's like being at home. There are all kinds of books available for every taste. Firewood for the fireplace. It's all there. We had a magical 2 nights in the cabin and couldn't have asked for a better escape. The best thing to do, in my opinion, was sit on the couch with a hot chocolate and a fire and gaze out the floor to ceiling window into the beautiful forest outside.
