Wonderful Stay!

  • 4 of 5

My family stayed for 3-nights at this wonderful property in early April 2018. Location doesn't get much better with a short 5-10-min walk to town. Be careful though, as there are not any sidewalks and drivers tend to zoom right by you. The home itself is very spacious with plenty of room for our family of 6-adults and 3-children. We actually had to make an effort to find people at times, as there is that many nooks and crannies to get some privacy... great hide and seek house! It is very well stocked with any amenity you could ever need, which was very nice. It has a lot of charm and is definitely a 'country' home, including the furnishings and decor. Some rooms could use updating, but it didn't detract from our experience at all. However, there was some work being done on the property's guest house and worker's were on the property all day during the week, which took away a lot of the solitude and privacy. Also, some new turf had been installed the day before we arrived, so we were not able to enjoy the full yard. The deck is a great gathering spot, with accent lighting and seating abound. New and more towels would be nice, as what was available was very old and frayed, and not very plentiful for 9 of us. The mattresses upstairs are nearing the end of their lifespan, as they do sag. The owner was very responsive and easy to talk with, very nice man who will answer all your questions. All things said, it was a nice stay and I definitely recommend!

Wonderful large lodge with everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

We brought the whole family, 9 of us, and had a wonderful weekend. David was a great host. Checking to be sure everything was well. We got lucky and woke up Friday morning to a light layer of snow. Had a great time. Thinking about coming back this summer.

Charming, cozy and family friendly home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific stay with another family. The four adults, four kids and one dog loved the house and large outdoor space! Ample firewood was a treat as well as the amazing music room! Thank you David for being an excellent host as well!

Lovely , special mountain home in Idyllwild.

  • 4 of 5

We booked this home for an eight person stay which it more than accommodated. Ample room, beautifully maintained, quite clean and wonderful authentic ambiance. Very close to all the places we love in town, as well as, the trails for hiking. Well heated with the exception of the upstairs bathroom which we believe could benefit from a space heater of its own. Some of the mattresses need an update also. Towels are scarce so we should have requested face towels for example. Easy fix for sure. The main thing is we would absolutely rent this home again and that says volumes. Many thanks to the owners for sharing and making my birthday trip special.

Perfect house for our family Thanksgiving!

  • 5 of 5

We’re a family of 9 with 4 children from 9 to 4. This house had the right number of bed rooms & bathrooms. It is comfortably furnished. There is a table & dinning room that could seat 14. Plenty of outdoor seating. The kids had a great time riding their scooters in the circular driveway way. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, glassware, silverware & pots & pan. We could even walk to the park!

Best rental in Idyllwild.

  • 5 of 5

The home is clean, perfectly equipped and provides extremely comfortable accommodation for small or large groups of people. The kitchen is well equipped. The home is within walking distance of town and very quiet private neighborhood. What we like post about is that David is a wonderful host. The cabin is well-stocked and well taken care of. We loved the fireplace in the firewood he provided. We Truly look forward to coming here again.
