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-Pine Cove
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'.

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!

Enchanting, relaxing, perfect location
We enjoyed our stay at Strawberry 🍓Corner and the village of Idyllwild, so much, that we’ve already booked a few more visits for upcoming months! Loraine was So attentive & helpful with my questions.
A picture perfect setting
I treated my daughter to a short get-a-way weekend to Idyllwild, a place she nor I, have ever been before. Living in Los Angeles, the idea of going to the mountains seems like the perfect escape. My daughter, 9 years old, wasn't quite sure what to expect, but certainly had this vision in her mind of what "rustic" would look like. The moment we arrived at this property, Strawberry Corner, each and every one of her expectations was met... as were mine! The cabin is charming in every sense of the word, well maintained, and appropriately stocked with games, towels, and all things necessary for us to enjoy our brief stay. Everything from the pine cones, ping pong table, mini-zip line, and hammock were used with tremendous enthusiasm and joy.
The location is perfect for walking into the town center and exploring the various eateries and local shops. It is also worth noting that dealing with the owner, Loraine, was an absolute pleasure. She was consistently responsive, helpful, and provided wonderful suggestions as to activities my daughter might enjoy.
Now having been to Idyllwild, I can see the appeal. I also observed that there are literally hundreds of cabin options to choose from.... we will stick with Strawberry Corner!
Beautiful home, cozy and very clean!
We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful vintage cottage so much! It is so cozy and super clean. The home has everything you would need for a relaxing stay in Idyllwild. Walking distance to town center, ample outside seating, comfortable beds and hot shows! Board games for kids and many cozy corners for relaxing! We can't wait to return!
Charming cabin on a mountain with great location for walking to town, shops and restaurants.
We had a great family vacation of hiking and sight seeing using this charming cabin as our base. Although we had a initial problems with the heating and some garbage left behind by last guests, it was taken care of immediately when we called the owner. The cabin is picture perfect and adorned in buffalo plaid. The upstairs gets very hot when the heater on the main floor is on. The temperature was very cold outside, so opening the windows solved that problem although it took several hours to cool the area off. Ample parking and the extra “cowboy cabin” was great for stashing the family snorer:). The fireplace was dreamy and easy to start. Kitchen was well stocked with dinnerware, utensils and small appliances. The back porch is divine complete with outdoor seating and a gorgeous hammock....perfect for a nap and a picture to make your friends jealous on Facebook.
Do note that is cabin is waaaay up a mountain from Palm Springs, ect. It will take you at least 30 minutes of traversing somewhat steep and some hairpin turns to get you up and down the mountain. We have experienced worse so not a big deal at all for us but if you are looking for easy access to Palm Springs this might not be the place for you.
If you go into this experience knowing you are staying in cabin built in the 1920’s and enjoy its charms and quirks, along with the gorgeous mountain scenery and cool weather, you will LOVE it.
Thank you for your review! I like be the huge rock fireplace too and the antique andirons! I’m glad we could get pilot light on in the little red freestanding fireplace in the dining room too. Thank you for your insightful and kind review!!
Warm cozy cottage very well appointed and perfect for a weekend getaway.
Our group of six adored this house. The kitchen was great for cooking and we loved the dining room and living room with a large fireplace. We were lucky enough to have snow all weekend and the view out the windows was perfect.
A lovely mountain getaway
We had a lovely time staying at Strawberry Corner! The house has a wonderful cozy and vintage feel. My children enjoyed the zip line outside and everyone loved being able to easily walk into town. The owner Loraine was quick to respond to any questions we had.
Overall, we had a great stay!
Hi and thank you for such a lovely review. I can't believe you had snow too! How fun! Please come back again soon! Consider this your cabin in Idyllwild! A great place to make memories!!!! Loraine
