About Loraine Dyson

Hi! I'm Loraine!

We love Idyllwild! Being in the real estate field as brokers, developers and investors for over 40 years, my husband and I know a choice property when we see it... and this is one! It took us all of five minutes to decide we had to own this treasure. It's the ultimate Idyllwild vacation home! There is something about Strawberry Corner that brings back memories of a sweet life, of baking pies and sitting by the fire, of feeling a part of a little town. This home gives everyone a feeling of the 'way it used to be'.... it enchants, delights, relaxes and intrigues all visitors. It just feels like 'home sweet home'. Places like this are priceless and it is our great joy to have our guests experience the same feelings we have every time we open the antique wood door with the stained glass strawberry window! This house is perfect for those who want healing, restoration, romance, quality family time with the kids of all ages, peace and quiet, creativity, and personal renewal!

Loraine Dyson purchased this cabin in 1998

Why Loraine Dyson chose Idyllwild

We purchased this home in 1998 when our daughter was three so we could have an authentic vacation lifestyle far from the busy cities or glitzy resorts. Idyllwild was clearly the best choice since it's within easy driving distance from the desert, San Diego, Orange County and Los Angeles. We loved the 'Norman Rockwell' small town feeling and the darling stores, crafting, hiking and great restaurants. It's so picturesque there! We feel safe and secure being so close to the village and were blessed to find a home that reflects the history of Idyllwild. It's been wonderful here and we would like to share the experience with others. We love being on the creek, which is a prime location in Idyllwild. We felt this home had it all! Location! Creek! Charm! Condition! There is something about Strawberry Corner that brings back memories of a sweet life, of baking pies and sitting by the fire, of feeling a part of a little town. This home gives everyone a feeling of the 'way it used to be'.... it enchants, delights, relaxes and intrigues all visitors. It just feels like 'home sweet home'.

This house is perfect for those who want healing, restoration, romance, quality family time with the kids of all ages, peace and quiet, creativity, and personal renewal!

What makes this cabin unique

We love all the seasons! In the winter it's a WINTER WONDERLAND and the snow makes for a magic we rarely get to experience. SPRING brings out the colors and the green, SUMMER is divine with sunshine and warmth! and of course the FALL is enchanting with the leaves turning and a crispness to the air. Many guests have said it's the most romantic place they've been and we've had one proposal! Just sitting around relaxing and talking after a hike or stroll into the village is so great. I have to say it's really super for afternoon naps on the comfy couch too!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just returned home from our trip to the cottage! What an amazing place! I knew from the pictures that it would be cute - but I was overwhelmed with all the wonderful touches and such clever decorating. We had SUCH a nice time! It was absolutely perfect for our anniversary.

Great cabin for families!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at the Strawberry Cabin this last weekend! I need to provide a review for three groups in our party -- the grown ups, the kids, and the dog.

The Grown ups: We loved the kitchen, it was open and perfect for group cooking or just sipping wine and watching someone else cook. The master king bed is like heaven! The living room is the quintessential cabin room; really everything you hope for when you plan a weekend at a cabin in the mountains. Huge stone fireplace, carved wood furniture, oversized chairs and a lovely leather couch for snuggling. Lots of dimmer lights throughout the cabin to allow for just the right mood. Sit on the back deck and listen to Strawberry Creek talk and gurgle! Also, this place has 3 BATHROOMS. That came in handy several times, with 9 of us there.

The Kids: OMG! We had so much fun! There are so many cool nooks to explore and hiding places for hide-n-seek! And the zip line was totally awesome, dude! The upstairs sleeping quarters seemed to be designed especially for us, very open floorplan, and we spent a lot of time up there playing games, doing makeup, and telling ghost stories while the grown ups left us alone. The hammock on the deck is a ton of fun, and there are two fireplaces; a big wood burner in the living room, and a pretty red gas burner in the dining room, where we liked to huddle in the morning waiting for the grown ups to make us breakfast.

The Dog: Wow! Big yard! Big squirrels! So many birds! Lots of yard to sniff and explore! No one yelled at me when I ran out the front door, because the yard is fully fenced. That was nice, cause I'm a good dog! Big giant deck in back so I can survey all the goings on down near the creek, and lounge with my humans. Woof! Let's go back soon, Mom!

Memories with the grandkids were made here, and we loved it.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I took our two grandchildren for a 2 night stay. Loved the cabin feel of all the wood, comfy beds, large deck for relaxing.The kids had a fun filled 2 days, feeding the birds, using the zip line, collecting pinecones, playing upstairs in the playroom. We played board games nightly at the kitchen table, and of course they loved the ping pong table. Mornings were memory filled breakfasts sitting in the kitchen talking about what we were going to do that day. We had a great time walking the short walk to town, shopping and painting pottery at Earth and Fire. One night we had pizza in town. The residents were very friendly and welcoming. Everything is there you will need to make your stay enjoyable. Loraine was very helpful and courteous. If you want a vintage log cabin this is the one in Idyllwild. Thank you Loraine! We will be back...the kids didn't want to leave! Chris, Fred, Payton and Jackson.

Charming cabin and property

  • 5 of 5

The cabin met our expectations, very comfortable, clean and town walkable for all of our needs. The large deck out back was so enjoyable and having the hammock was great for naps. We previously lived in an old cabin and happen to love all the charm of old cabins.

We would definitely rent again.

So nice, we didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

A wonderfully appointed cabin, from top to bottom. Just beautiful ambiance...and, only a short walk to town. Obviously, a caring owner with an eye for details; great and helpful communication, leaving nothing to want. We'd return without a second thought! (and, we're intending to do just that!). Thank you!
