Idyllwild is on the map as '100 best art gallery towns in the USA'. Our village is also known for the excellent

variety of restaurants, from mellow fine dining to an assortment of casual cafes to satisfy every palate. A coffee house, wine bistro and 'health-full' cuisine are also good choices. For those into alternative health,

we have massage therapists, acupuncture, pilates and a yoga studio. Within a short walk from the house is an

obstacle course by Strawberry creek, adjacent to a kiddie playground. Up and coming events include: Memorial Day festivities; July 4th parade; Lemon Lily & Blue Grass Festival in mid July; Jazz Fest the last weekend in August; garage sales over Labor

Day; and Wine Walk in Oct. For those movie buffs, there's a great theater in the middle of the village that shows 1st rate films and also rents videos.


Manager info

Year Purchased: 1992

About: In 1992, I moved from Long Beach, Ca. to Idyllwild where I purchased an Inn right in the heart of the village. After 12 years of being an innkeeper, I retired from this lifestyle and now work in hospitality part-time, along w/ managing two properties in town. I now can devote more time to hiking and exploring these beautiful mountains w/ my friends.

Why Idyllwild, Idyllwild-Pine Cove, CA, USA:
I am very proud to be associated with this property and am grateful to have the opportunity to manage the 'Old Oak Tree' cabin. I love the beauty and solitude of Idyllwild and this cabin represents both to me.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
One can leave the world behind when entering the cozy ambiance of this property. This cabin lends itself to either just r & r time or used as a haven for hiking, shopping or a base for explorations.
