About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8

Escape to the woods in this Idyllwild vacation rental! This luxurious, dog-friendly cabin getaway has a fully equipped kitchen, wrap-around deck, and three bedrooms, including a gorgeous master bedroom. Perfect for a family retreat or romantic escape, this well appointed lodge is the perfect way to experience nature in Southern California.

Adjacent to the Suicide Rock trailhead and Tahquitz Rock, hikers and rock climbers flock to this sought-after location all year long! But if you're not the adventurous type and would much rather relax with a hot beverage and a book or two, Idyllwild has plenty of opportunities for taking it easy!

There's nothing better than relaxing in front of the wood-burning fireplace in the upstairs living room, reading that novel you've been meaning to pick up or watching something on the cable-equipped TV with a DVD player and movie library. A wood-burning stove is also available in the family room.

Planning on cooking? You'll have a fully equipped kitchen all to yourself with all of the amenities you need, including a dishwasher, coffee maker, and cookware!

Three bedrooms are available here, sleeping up to eight guests, but you'll love the master bedroom upstairs most of all! With a queen-size bed, a luxurious en suite bathroom with a jetted tub, and private access to the deck that wraps around the whole house, this bedroom is fit for royalty. Two other bedrooms, both with queen-size beds, are also available, and a futon sleeps the final two guests. Two full bathrooms, including the en suite, are available for your use.

Outside, the wrap-around deck is perfect for relaxing when the weather is nice, enjoying the views of trees as far as the eye can see. Here, you'll find lovely patio furniture and an outdoor gas grill for your use.

With free WiFi and a private washer/dryer provided, everyone will be very comfortable here! Books and games for adults and children are all available, but you're also more than welcome to bring your own from home. Dogs are also welcome to come along for an additional nightly pet fee.

In town, you'll find a couple of charming shops and restaurants to visit when you're tired of doing your own cooking. Artistic travelers also flock to Idyllwild for "Will in the Woods," the annual production put on by the local Shakespeare troupe, and the international film festival.

About Vacasa of Morongo Basin

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.

Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.

Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Guestbook comments from the manager

My husband and I just returned from a wonderful weekend at this cabin. The cabin is located way up in Fern Valley, just before the entrance to Humber Park. The location was perfect. We also loved the cabin which had everything we needed. We didn't really use the kitchen but it seemed to be well-equipped and the master bedroom was so spacious and comfortable. We especially loved the large wrap-around upper deck and the incredible views. We spent so much time out there just enjoying the quiet and the views, the squirrels and blue jays. The spiral staircase was fine for us but our (90 lb) Lab refused to attempt it so it wouldn't be a good choice for us if we brought him again. We also had trouble with the television and internet when we arrived and Pat was immediately available and sent a technician over right away (after 6pm on a Friday). He got the television working but we never had internet. Still we were so impressed how management responded and believe it or not, we survived a weekend without our internet! We would definitely stay at this cabin again if we left the pup home. Great place.

Great location but...

  • 2 of 5

We just returned from our trip where we rented this property for 5 days. The location is great-in a less traveled part of town yet still close to everything including trail heads. The issue that I have is with the cleanliness of the property. The carpet is so heavily stained and torn in spots which they do a great job of leaving out of the pictures. There was a small piece of broken glass on the floor in the living room that it made me wonder just how well they actually clean/vacuum the carpets. The futon that is shown in one of the pictures has a large stain on it and I would not let a guest sleep on that, let alone myself. Cobwebs everywhere. I understand that the occasional cobweb is to be expected, esp in a mountain setting but they were literally everywhere and again, makes me wonder how much attention is actually paid in cleaning this property. I will say that the bed linens did appear to have been changed and clean. So they had that going for them.

The view from the deck is gorgeous but there were not as many chairs or tables as is shown in the pictures on the website so it made it a little challenging to share space with our guests outdoors.

While I will say our stay at this property was not horrible, it is not a space that I would ever return to due to the lack of cleanliness and attention to the decor.

Owner's Response: We are sorry to read about this guest's disappointment in the cleanliness of the home. A deep clean will take care of most of these, and we will do what we can about the stains. Thank you!

Great views on the edge of town

  • 4 of 5

This is a very nice property located on the edge of the developed area of Idyllwild so there is very little traffic. Also very near hiking trails in the area.<br />

<br />

The upstairs living room has great views of the mountains as you are 20 feet up into the trees.<br />

<br />

Easily accommodates groups of 6 or more.<br />

<br />

Master has only a queen bed and the toilet is very tight next to the shower. Oh and watch out of the post in the middle of the master and the raised floor in the bathroom on the middle of the night.
