Perfect getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

Idyllwild is a gem of a mountain town - all the essentials you need, great outdoor activities, and then there’s the “Old Oak Tree” to make it a perfect getaway! It’s a cozy home in the trees and it just feels like home away from home. The huge yard is great for our fur child to run around, and it’s walking distance to the heart of town! We will continue to make this our regular Idyllwild getaway spot!!

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely cottage is beautifully appointed with everything you can imagine! Huge 1/2 acre yard if you have pups! Close to town and a 3 minute walk to Idyllwild Park where there are a couple of nice trails to hike.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Lori, for your kind words. Happy that you enjoyed Idyllwild ~ October is always a lovely month in the mountains.

About Marilyn

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.

Marilyn purchased this house in 1992

Why Marilyn chose Idyllwild

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

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.
