About the Property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Mountain View Chalet is a charming hiking retreat nestled in the heart of the Santa Rosa Mountains on a private acre of land with soaring spectacular 360-degree views of the surrounding mountains, national forest and the Desert floor. Located just minutes from the Pacific Crest hiking trail, Lake Hemet, Idyllwild and Palm Desert, there’s easy access to beautiful hiking trails, 30 minutes to Idyllwild and 20 minutes to elegant shopping on El Paseo, gourmet restaurants, cafes, quaint shops, art galleries and movie theatres.

This beautiful two story mountain home has open beam cedar cathedral ceilings and floor to ceiling windows. It’s decorated in a vintage mountain décor that will take you a step back in time with antique accents. This 1600 square foot chalet sleeps 6 comfortably and has 2 inviting bedrooms with Queen beds and a full bath on the first floor. The second floor master bedroom retreat features a California King bed, a full bath with Jacuzzi tub, a private outside deck and a quaint reading loft for enjoying a good book while taking in breathtaking mountain and desert views from the cathedral windows. A fully stocked gourmet kitchen and charming dining area feature an eating bar, gorgeous granite counters, custom pine cabinets and new stainless steel appliances.


The chalet offers central air conditioning and heat, along with a cozy wood burning stove for warming up on chilly mountain days. On warmer days, you can take in spectacular views while barbecuing on the expansive wrap around deck and enjoying the birds and wildlife that swing by daily for a visit.

This property features natural landscaping filled with ribbonwood and manzanita trees along with beautiful rock landscaping and a stone stairway that leads to a lower property level with access to canyon and hiking trails.

This private oasis is filled with serenity and offers a magical getaway which is perfect for hiking retreats with family and friends. Please keep in mind young children are welcome at Mountain View Chalet, however it's not a child proof home due to antique furnishings and artwork. Please consider this when booking with young children. Our maximum occupancy is 6 guests.
