Property description

Idyllwild is located in the San Jacinto Mountains at 6000-feet elevation. Enjoy tall pines, the sweet smelling cedars, and awe-inspiring cliffs.

This quiet, rustic mountain cabin is in the village of Pine Cove just minutes away from the town of Idyllwild and is located on a private cul de sac. It has a large A-frame with floor-to-ceiling windows surrounded by knotty pine walls and ceilings. Features two bedrooms (one is loft style) and 1 & 1/2 baths with tumbled tiling. Wood burning fireplace. Sleeps seven; one California king, one queen, one full-size pull-out sofa, one twin mattress. 1000 sq ft. Ceiling fan.

Immaculate kitchen with granite counter tops and like-new appliances. Includes gas oven/range with grilling options, side-by-side refrigerator with ice maker, disposal, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, coffee grinder, tea kettle, rice cooker, waffle maker, blender, pots, pans- including pizza pan,water and wine glasses, mugs, can opener, wine opener, serving platters and bowls and table service for eight.

This is a simple cabin in terms of media. We do offer two smaller televisions with VCR and DVD available with many movies. However, we don't offer cable service. We come to the cabin to be as unplugged as possible and try to create that for our guests. Games and Puzzles are available! Or, relax and enjoy one of our favorite books. Stereo system with five-disc CD changer and dual tape player with many tape and CD selections to choose from. The movies, books and music will bring you back into a time :) Large unfenced backyard with hammock, pine trees, and slight hill (perfect for sledding) and large gated deck attached to house with barbecue and deck seating in summer. No telephone, please bring cell phones. Wireless internet service available to the public in cozy cafe in town.

Local activities include endless hiking trails, rock climbing, mountain biking, horseback riding, fishing, picnicking, gallery viewing, and shopping. Enjoy nearby Lake Hemet or Lake Furmor. Winter storms bring snow so sledding and cross-country skiing can be enjoyed. Nightlife includes Karaoke in town, restaurants. cafes, or cuddling by the fire at home.

Come and experience the peace and quiet of Idyllwild.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Rosanna Caira purchased the Idyllwild Mountain Retreat in 2004. Using the home as a vacation rental has been a great way to share our little bit of peace in the mountains with others!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
I love staying in Idyllwild. It is so peaceful at our cabin where everything slows down and there is so much time for reflection. We love to go for local hikes, enjoy relaxing meals or just stay at home and be in the peace and quiet and read a great book. We are on a quiet street where there is no foot or auto traffic.
