'Idyll Tyme!' is a place to do most anything, or nothing at all! The cabin underwent an extensive remodel in 2013, with Direct TV, wireless internet, flat-screen TV, and many other amenities. You can enjoy squirrels, raccoons, birds, and a great view from the wrap-around deck any time of day, although it is especially nice in the evenings. From the deck, loft and bedrooms, one can see Lily Rock in all its splendor. The gated deck can be completely fenced in and secure, so it is safe for young children and pets.

About Doug Pumphrey
Doug is a retired US Forest Service employee and Bonnie is a musician by profession, so the community's emphasis on the arts and the forest was a good match for both of us (we are now retired-sort of!). We lived in this house for 9 years while Doug was US Forest Service District Ranger and still know many local residents here, so we have extensive knowledge of the area and its special charms. We have used vacation rentals in other parts of the world and decided that our place was a wonderful area to share with others, just as others have shared with us, whether here in the US or abroad. We are happy to answer any questions you may have, and to welcome you to this little corner of paradise. Come and enjoy!
Doug Pumphrey purchased this Cabin in 1981
Why Doug Pumphrey chose Fern Valley
While we lived here, we realized the special benefits of this great environment and the wonderful people who live here, and everyone's efforts to keep it that way. We look forward to sharing our piece of paradise with you.
What makes this Cabin unique
We love the fact that the cabin is cozy and at the same time gives the feeling of openness. It is very airy and bright. The day we walked in, the first comment we made was, 'Oooo, we like!!' Through the years, we have had wonderful conversations on the wrap-around deck, especially in the summer evenings, but year around as well. We enjoy decorating for seasons, holidays and special occasions! In completing the remodel of our place, we've made every effort to make the cabin comfortable and modern, yet compatible with the feeling that is essentially Idyllwild. We love to take walks around the area and just enjoy the peace, but equally enjoy the local concerts and events, as well as the DIRECT TV, Wi-Fi, and other amenities of the cabin. There are level streets in the neighborhood which make a good walking or jogging route, and the house is completely accessible in winter. Idyllwild Arts provides great concerts and is only a short drive away (please contact them for concert schedules). You can find wonderful restaurants, unique shops, and an abundance of nature related activities here. We enjoy providing seasonally appropriate decorations for the cabin, making your holidays here feel like home. Since we live only about 30 minutes away, we make ourselves available as needed. We enjoy meeting and greeting our guests whenever possible. After all, strangers are only friends we haven't yet met!

Great location to get away but still close to the action.
Quiet location close to but not in busy downtown, hiking trails within walking distance or short drive. Clean well maintained cabin with everything you need.
I love the view and it was quite peaceful. Staying over night felt like sleeping in my own house.
We enjoyed our stay!
We had a relaxing time at Idyll Tyme! We have been here before and love coming here to relax! The cabin was so nice and clean and many amenities were provided! Thank you so much!
Clean, comfortable, well maintained and perfect.
I highly recommend this lovely little home. I would definitely stay here again.
Beautiful cabin, with everything you’ll need for a perfect getaway!
We absolutely loved this cabin and are already trying to go back. It has a beautiful charm for being able to socialize in the living room while everyone could have their one space too. It’s close to town which I highly recommend walking around and getting to experience! The town was so friendly and full of friendly faces at every turn. We were extremely lucky to find this place and can’t wait to come back and rent again! Extremely clean, everything you could need is in the kitchen and the fridge has so much space. Shower has incredible water pressure that felt incredible on sore muscles after hiking. The patio is well stocked with furniture to sit outside and enjoy nature- be careful though as one neighbor isn’t a fan on noise and yelled at us our last morning when it was the only time we were all outside laughing and playing a card game. Even that experience couldn’t take us away from wanting to come back! They even had some small snacks and coffee creamers next the coffee maker. Words can barely do this cabin justice!!! Wonderful hosts who were kind and provided plenty of information beforehand so understand the property!
This was a relaxing, comfortable and beautiful cabin.
We booked this cabin to attend a wedding in idywild. It was so beautiful and cozy with beautiful views that we didn’t want to leave the cabin to attend the wedding.
Doug and Bonnie were very good about giving us all the required information prior to our stay and were responsive.
We would definitely book this lovely cabin again.
The cabin is in beautiful Fern Valley, 1 mile from Humber Park, location of many major trailheads, and about 2 miles from several other trails and the unique shops and restaurants in the center of town. Peaceful, private, and serene, it is a wonderful place for a romantic stay for two, a friends' getaway, small group retreat, business planning sessions, fun with the family, you name it! We are on a paved road which is plowed when it snows. If you don't know where something is, please ask. Desert communities, San Diego, Orange County, and Los Angeles are all within easy reach. The Idyllwild Arts facility is close by. There is also wine tasting in Idyllwild and Temecula (about 1 hour away).
