    Breathe and relax in small-town Idyllwild

    You know the old saying: When life hands you lemons, head to Idyllwild. Maybe that’s not quite how it goes, but this lush Californian paradise certainly seems the cure-all for many ails. In the shadows of the mountains, it boasts charming small-town appeal—so small-town, in fact, that you'd be hard pressed to find any traffic, noise, or large crowds. Nature is king here, and that’s perfectly fine for anyone who books an Idyllwild vacation rental. The beauty of the place is in its landscape of breathtaking colors, its magnificent scenery, and its peaceful ambiance.

    From craggy rocks to charming shops

    In the cozy confines of Idyllwild, the beautiful outdoor setting provides a perfect backdrop for every outdoor activity imaginable. Set up camp in Idyllwild County Park, or hike your way up the majestic mountain trails. The area is also known for its challenging climbing rocks. They aren't for the timid, but they make for some fabulous social media photo opps—just be sure you’re wearing the appropriate gear! For those whose preferred activity is handing over the credit card, Idyllwild has several folksy shops where you can buy everything from homemade soaps to heady candles.

    The King, the art, and the charm of Idyllwild

    An area so steeped in small-town charm deserves preservation—and that’s precisely the goal of the Idyllwild Area Historical Society. The on-site museum is home to vintage photographs, exhibits tracing the history of the mountain community, and even a tribute to “Kid Galahad,” an Elvis Presley musical shot in town. If you booked an Idyllwild vacation rental solely for its natural beauty, a visit to the Idyllwild Nature Center is essential. Find out why Idyllwild is considered one of the country’s best towns for art, too—there are dozens of galleries showcasing fine art, sculptures, jewelry, and more.

    Sunshine and snowfall in Idyllwild

    It’s usually sunny in Idyllwild—a good indication that you’re most definitely in California. Summer is hot and typically dry, with an average high of about 85 degrees. If you wish to avoid the heat and arrive in town to take advantage of the mountains in all their glory, you may want to book your Idyllwild vacation rental in the winter. It dips down to around 30 degrees in January, and the season’s average snowfall measures approximately 25 inches. Rain is sporadic throughout the year.

    Climb a rock, fish a creek

    In the shadows of the San Jacinto Mountains, Idyllwild is dotted with awe-inspiring, towering pine trees and delicately scented cedars. The area’s craggy rocks, including Tahquitz and Suicide are legendary among climbers. Don’t let the latter’s name scare you away; once you’ve reached your destination you’ll be rewarded with epic views of the sunrise or sunset. Because water seems to be everywhere—even in the quaintest of Cali towns that resemble alpine villages—you’ll find delightful Strawberry Creek in town, where fishing and strolling alongside are both highly encouraged.
