'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!

It was Awesome! Owner thought of everything!
We truly enjoyed our stay. The cabin was clean, had a homey feel, and had every amenity! Coffee and fixin's with a Keurig machine, wood and kindling for the wood burning stove, AC/heating, updated appliances in the kitchen with granite countertops. Dog friendly. Large screen TV with Spectrum service, DVD player with DVD's. Lots of blankets for the cooler weather. Was able to sit outside and have meals on the deck and enjoy the outdoors. Would definitely rent again!
Awesome as usual!!
Loved our time at the cabin, perfectly kept, clean, beautiful place to stay!!! Can't wait until our next visit!!
Well furnished, very comfortable beds, appliances newer, and responsive owner
We were two people in a cabin that could comfortably accommodate 6 people. For us it was cozy, comfortable with easy access to the town and hiking trails. We would recommend this place to our friends. Particularly nice it allowed us to bring our dog who loves hiking too!
Being vegan we were pleasantly surprised that the town has a vegan restaurant, Plant food supper club.The town was a tourist town but nonetheless interesting and surrounded by beautiful mountains.
Very clean and comfortable
Very quiet and well appointed house
Perfect weekend getaway
Our family has enjoyed this cabin several times now! We love the location, the ambiance, and the many upgrades this cabin has!
Peace in Idyllwild
We have been using VRBO rentals for over 10 years and this is one of the nicest we have stayed at. It is nestled in the trees and is very peaceful and quiet. The cabin is VERY clean and has everything you need. The owners have thought of every detail. The layout is great and the deck is wonderful for a cup of coffee in the morning. We would definitely come back.😊
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).
