Close to town but very quiet and serene

Loved this cabin! Super cute place. Great stay for the weekend-- close to town but very quiet and serene. Great fenced-in yard for the dog as well. The place had everything we needed for a relaxing vacation. Thanks!

Pure Magic!

My husband and two little boys, ages 5 and 3, spent our anniversary trip in this magical cabin. It was absolutely perfect for our family. Here are things that we loved the most: 1.) Waking up in the upstairs loft bedroom and seeing the birds and treetops. Pure magic! I have always loved A frames... 2.) Hot tub on the deck. We all went in every evening during sunset, and even enjoyed a full moon evening under the stars. 3.) Guitar and games available to play. What a wonderful touch. 4.) Nice flat deck to do yoga. Sun salutations during sunset will be something I’ll always remember. I would highly recommend this place to couples or families that are looking for an Idyllwild experience. It was perfect, and we will definitely be back...

Gorgeous cabin and in a perfect location

Gorgeous cabin and in a perfect location: quiet and a bit secluded but within a walkable distance from town. Kitchen was very well stocked (all the spices!) and we enjoyed the view of the stars from the hot tub!

I would come here again in a heartbeat

This A frame cabin was amazing. We came as 4 girlfriends getting away from our busy lives just wanting a bit of peace and bonding. The place was perfect. Fenced yard is hard to come by and the dog loved it. The deck was our favorite and hot tubbing in the rain was an experience we won’t soon forget. The kitchen was well stocked. The AC really helped cool down the place when it got hot one of the evenings. I would come here again in a heartbeat.

Thoughtful touches make you feel right at home!

This is a great little cabin! It is obviously loved and well taken care of. The spa and hammock helped us take full advantage of the views both during daylight and at night! The string lights on the deck made eating on the deck feel magical, and the fully stocked kitchen helped make meal prep a breeze. The cabin is filled with thoughtful touches that will make you feel right at home. We will definitely be back!

Well-stocked Kitchen & High Quality Linens

We just came back from a lovely three nights at the cabin. We made use of the hot tub and bbq multiple times during our stay. I appreciated the well-stocked kitchen, including oils and basic spices. Cooking was a breeze. The backyard was much bigger than we had anticipated and made for a couple of epic nerf wars. We brought our dog and I love that he had a big, fenced-in space to run around in. The large TV, dvd player, and sound system were really awesome and the controls were straightforward. The cabin was very clean and the beds were comfy. The linens seem to be high quality (ie Pottery Barn comforters) and there were plenty of fluffy pillows, another thoughtful touch. The cabin is on a quiet street, right around the corner from a couple of good restaurants, and a short walk into town. We are big hikers. We didn't do any hiking because it was pretty hot when we visited, but this would be an awesome home base for hiking San Jacinto and the surrounding area. The whole family can't wait to go back!

This place was great!

This place was great! I almost don't want to write this because I want it to be available anytime we go back :)) The cabin was perfect for our family of 4. Close to town, cozy and well upgraded. The gem of this property though is the outdoor screened in casita (the brookhouse) on the back of the property. It was AMAZING, restful and felt as if it was a cabin at the cabin. So nice. We'll definitely be back!

“We love love love this place!"

“We love love love this place! Classic A-Frame that has been beautifully remodeled while keeping it's classic charm. Everything you need for comfort. Kitchen, bath, bed, all good. Beautiful spa and backyard. The redwood trees in the backyard are majestic and huggable. Take a big deep breath and relax, let go of the city. You're in beautiful, quirky, charming, Idyllwild. You are a 2 minute drive (10 minute walk) to the best restaurants and only a few minutes drive to the best hikes... it's a perfect location... and Kelly is the perfect host, everything happens effortlessly (this is the 2nd property of Kelly's we have enjoyed, totally professional)... and if that isn't enough to convince you, this property is fully approved by our French Bulldog (dog-friendly property)... she had the best time sniffing every corner of the house and property and staring intently out the window at the big grey squirrel who kept visiting us on the deck... we're back in LA now and wish we were still there... ”

The back deck is EVERYTHING'

Idyllcove was everything that we were hoping for and more. We wanted a quiet weekend away to work on our wedding vows and the serene A-frame cabin in the woods was the perfect place. The cabin has the most amazing back deck where we grilled and feasted, drank wine in the evening and spent time writing and lounging under the stars and surrounded by trees. The inside of the cabin was just as amazing as the outside. The setting is spacious, quiet and just a short walk into town, we will definitely be back; Idyllcove will become our weekend getaway location!!

I'd definitely stay here again!

Really nice rental for a couple's (or small family's) weekend away. Biggest advantage over other rentals we looked at was the air conditioning. We underestimated how warm Idyllwild would be in July, so were really glad to have the A/C. Home is nicely appointed. Everything is in fantastic condition; other rentals we've tried have looked very worn. There were extra blankets, lots of games, pretty much everything you could ask for. Yard is huge and gated and looks perfect for a dog (and the cabin has a doggie door built-in already). We found the walk to town (more accurately, the walk *back* from town a little daunting) so drove everywhere after the first day, but while almost a mile from town, the location was very quiet. Back deck was huge and in great shape. Multiple TVs and Wi-Fi make this a really nice place for a couple or small family. I'd definitely stay here again!

We absolutely loved relaxing on the back patio.

We greatly enjoyed out 2-night stay at Idyllcove. The cabin itself was adorable. Kelly did a great job checking in on us via text to see if we needed anything and to be sure that everything was in order. Idyllcove has a good location in a quiet neighborhood. We were able to walk to breakfast and town from the house. We absolutely loved relaxing on the back patio. The fenced yard was also great - our dogs had a blast exploring in the back yard.

Exactly as Described

We had such a lovely time and it is exactly as described. We walked in, took a look around, got online and booked it again for the upcoming holiday- all before we had even unpacked. I cooked two full meals in the kitchen, which was stocked with everything I needed in terms of cookware. The bed was super comfortable, the linens were nice and we were close to everything we wanted to do (hiking, eating, shopping). We have fallen hopelessly in love with the town of Idyllwild and look forward to going back often.

We're already planning a return trip!

The first night my girlfriend and I stayed at Idyllcove she turned to me and asked, "Should we try and buy this place?" Kelly has done a fantastic job with the house; it felt like home immediately. We're already planning a return trip!
