We live in San Diego and love to hike. Owning a home in Idyllwild has been a dream since I first visited the mountain 18 years ago. The home is a dream! It is beautifully appointed, newly remodeled from top to bottom and enjoys lots of privacy and seclusion.

JOHN RINALDI purchased this Lodge in 2012

Why JOHN RINALDI chose Idyllwild-Pine Cove

The last owners remodeled the home with love and utilized many of the same materials used in my primary home like slate floors, the moment I walked in the home I knew this was the house!

What makes this Lodge unique

I love views and being up high. The home features large decks in the front and in the back and is quiet and serene. It is a first class home with many fine touches. The unique wood carvings, the large lava rock fireplace reaching to the ceiling, the spa against the rocks, a backyard surrounded by granite rocks, all of these things captured my heart.

                                                                  Utterly relaxing!!

                                                                  Melanie H.San Diego

                                                                  This was a wonderful getaway for our family on Thanksgiving. The location is beautiful - of course. Proof of the relaxing part is that our daughter was taught how to play pool and I read a complete book! A couple of fixable things keep me from giving this a complete 5 star rating: upon arriving in the dark, there was no indication that the door knob is loose. Not being able to quickly get into the home was a bit unnerving - a situation remedied only after calling the local contact AND the owner. A few minor repairs are needed: the kitchen faucet and the downstairs bathroom door. Plus the football fans in the bunch were sad that there was absolutely no life in the TV. Like I said - easily fixable. We loved the home and would definitely return!

                                                                  A fun home in a beautiful setting!

                                                                  Amanda R.

                                                                  Great home for getting that balance of relaxation and excitement. We were pleasantly surprised to be within walking distance of awesome hiking trails and then able to come back and play pool and eat popcorn before star gazing from the hot tub. We'll be back!

                                                                  Spacious and a great kitchen

                                                                  Erin H.

                                                                  We stayed in this same house about 7 years ago with a group of 10 women and again this year with a group of 8. For the price you can't really go wrong and the location is excellent. Nice that it is nestled up about the street. I will say that the carpet and couch in the livingroom could definitely use a cleaning. We didn't use the spa in the backyard because it was under construction and the lid needs to be replaced. If you're looking for a comfortable, well stocked house with an attentative owner this is a great spot. The kitchen is great for making community meals and hanging out.

                                                                  Nice but in need of maintenance

                                                                  James P.

                                                                  The exterior is in need of some TLC.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Please review all the other amazing reviews. This guest arrived, then informed us he had to return home work reasons unfortunately we do not grant refunds, (this guest's experience is why we suggest travel insurance as it is not the vacation home owners responsibility to incur a loss because a guest's job or other event causes them to cancel or shorten their stay.) Thus, please draw your own conclusions.

                                                                  The accommodations were great ... getting to them is another matter

                                                                  Mo M.

                                                                  The pictures make it look great. However, the 50 steps from the mini parking space where you can't open the doors all the way to get things out of the vehicle, are daunting at best. Having to carry everything up the stairs, including the dogs, taking into account my age of 65 and the higher altitude, was close to impossible. Then the realization that there's no yard in the front of the place and you have to go up a spiral/metal staircase to get the dogs outside to do their business - definitely not a happy camper. One of my mini dachshunds tried to do the outside and fell, thankfully only 4 steps. She tried again inside to do the spiral staircase, but because it's metal, she slipped and fell again down 4 stairs. Strong wifi posted in ad - NOT. This was a working break for me and, the intermittent signal proved problematic. Then had an incident at work and had the internet worked, I could have stayed, but because it wasn't reliable, had to leave the second day into the stay. I don't recommend this place unless you're in very good shape. Climbing those stairs even without carrying anything in the altitude is tough enough. Place actually had a funicular in the back, but wasn't available for guests.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  I am biased, I love my cabin as does the majority of guests confirmed by the many, many 5 star reviews. I describe the stairs in the welcome package, the main picture on this website shows the stair case in detail and yet, I get the occasionally guest who then complains and write a negative review about my stairs. Thus, I conclude the guest(s) must either be illiterate and or too lazy to look at the picture or to call and ask questions of the extremely responsive owner to verify the property suitable for their particular needs. I work from the cabin all the time remotely with friends along also working remotely with no internet problems. This guest called after check in telling me of their work problem and advising me they may need to check out early. I informed the guest, this cabin rents every weekend and I cannot cancel/refund their reservation as we unfairly lose income and this type of incident is why I suggest travel insurance. Then I braced for this type of childish retaliatory review. The guest claimed the "fast' internet described should be at least 200mpbs. (no where do I promise speed like that) I do not believe we can even get that speed on the mountain top and I only use 100mpbs in my business of 25 employees in San Diego.

                                                                  To everyone reading, the cabin offers an amazing retreat with top of line amenities like one would find at a Kimpton, including a welcome bottle of wine whenever possible and yes perfectly great internet from which I routinely stream Netflix, Pandora, connect my phones and surf the internet. ( Yes, maybe I need to disconnect more, but I digress) Yes, there are stairs, if you cannot handle stairs, hills, mountains, then the mountains may not be for you. However, the price of a serene, mountaintop retreat and privacy are stairs, hills and mountains. To this guest, I suggest you more carefully read the very accurate description of the property that owners such as I painstakingly post to ensure the right guests choose the right property and enjoy their stays. (Yes, a guest's enjoyment is overwhelmingly important to owners). Finally, when I stay in Hotels I don't experience Hotel chains willingly letting one cancel an hour before or during one's stay thus, I am bewildered that one would expect owners of smaller enterprise like a VRBO cabin to take a loss because a guest experienced a problem at work and failed to purchase travel insurance.
