About the Property
Available for 1-3 night stays on Fridays thru Monday and some weeklong stays
Enjoy meals or a drink your private patio, our expansive view deck or our new forest deck.
The view deck and forest deck both have a barbecue for your use. The 'back 40', our backyard, is also available for use and has an infant tree swing.
Idyllwild has been designated as one of America's 100 Best Art Towns. Our cabin is in a quiet beautiful residential area, close to hiking, biking, restaurants, shops, and the many cultural and art events. You are also less than an hour's drive from the desert and Palm Springs.
We will be there when you arrive, ready to help plan your stay and assist you as needed. We'd like to invite you up on the deck in the evening to enjoy a glass of wine, beautiful sunsets and conversation.
When we're in Idyllwild, we feel at home. People are friendly and the pace is easy-going. Our neighborhood, in the Upper Fern Valley area, is just over a mile to the village with its outstanding restaurants, antique shops and many unique art galleries. Music abounds 'on the hill', at restaurants, our local wine bar and numerous special events like Jazz in the Pines in August. The Idyllwild School of the Arts provides multiple artistic performances throughout the year. Then there's the Rustic Theater if you want to take in a movie.
Natural beauty surrounds you in Idyllwild. Hiking, biking, climbing and winter sports (when there's snow!) are all popular activities. Mt. San Jacinto, Lily Rock, Devil's Slide, Suicide Rock, Dark Canyon, Marion Peak, Lake Fulmor, Lake Hemet and much more await your exploration! We can recommend some of our favorites if you like.
Our cabin has lots of level, easy access parking and is on a regularly plowed road, so snow is not a major problem.

Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: We are avid travelers and hikers. I am retired and Corinne is a holistic health practitioner, specialing in massage, energy work and homeopathy. Our most recent adventure was a two week trip to Turkey. Our biggest recent adventure was completing the 500 mile Camino de Santiago in Spain. We live in San Diego but spend every possible moment we can in Idyllwild.
Why the Owner Chose Idyllwild, Idyllwild-Pine Cove, CA, USA:
We looked at several properties, but when I saw this one, I knew it was 'it'. It was the right size for our family and the studio was an added bonus. When I called Corinne from the view deck, I said, ' I think I found our future home!' And we had. We have had great fun fixing it up adding dual pane windows, a forced air heating unit, repainted deck, refurbished fireplace and much more. I have a lot of future projects in mind, but for now we are very happy on 'the hill'.
The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
We are only two hours away from 'Idy' so it's easy to jump in the car and take the beautiful drive up the hill. When I make the big turn after the Idyllwild town sign and I see Lily Rock, I let out a big sigh and feel like I'm home. The people in Idyllwild are very friendly. We've found each has a unique story to share. We're surrounded by artists, musicians and talented people of all kinds. We look forward to the day when we can become full time 'hill folk'.
