Romantic cottage w/ 2-person hot tub & furnished patio - close to parks & town

For those looking for that perfect get-away-from-it-all destination, this one-bedroom cottage with a two-person hot tub is located in the beautiful San Jacinto Mountains, midway between Hemet and Palm Springs, and only 100 miles from Los Angeles.

Just a little over a mile from your rental, head out on over 200 acres of hiking trails across open spaces and through mature forests in Idyllwild Park. Hike the Summit Trail up to the Idyllwild Nature Center and be sure to keep your eyes (and your cameras) out for local wildlife. One mile west, the Idyllwild Arts campus offers year-round entertainment including live theater productions and music. This is also the home of the highly acclaimed Jazz in the Pines festival featuring over two dozen bands. And for shops, restaurants, brewpubs, and wineries, downtown Idyllwild offers a number of options, just a mile-and-a-half east.

Your cottage comes with free WiFi and a flatscreen TV with Netflix streaming. When the temperature drops, take a dip in the hot tub, stoke up the fireplace and play some of the provided board games, or dive into a book as rain (or a rare dusting of snow) falls on Idyllwild. When things warm up, take advantage of your furnished, fenced backyard where you can watch the sunrise through the trees with a cup of fresh brewed morning coffee.

Take a well-deserved break from the big city and make your escape to this quiet and secluded vacation rental.

*Please note: active security cameras are located outside of the home. The owners turn the cameras on when the home is vacant.

Quaint, quiet, cozy, beautifully decorated...we loved the 2 person jacuzzi, the privacy, the garden, the bed, hammock, and fire pit area. Nice touches throughout! Clean, clean, clean! Looking forward to our next getaway.

A beautiful peaceful and relaxing little home to come to for a little vacation. The perfect place to relax after long exploring hikes. I will come back for sure, I am not done exploring Idyllwild.
I love The nest ❤

The Nest was just what my husband and I needed to celebrate our anniversary and relax. The house is very cozy. I was very impressed at how clean and updated the house is. We will definitely be staying again!

This place is a gem. It is walking distance to town, and was extremely clean and equipped with everything we needed for our weekend. I read a review about the shower being small and the bed uncomfortable. I am pleased to report that the shower is small, but very clean, newly remodeled, and has good water pressure. The mattress was very comfortable and we slept very well with the romantic in room furnace/faux fireplace. The wood stove and central heating kept the home very warm, just know that if you plan to use the loft bedding, heat rises and it gets crazy hot upstairs! Oh, and an added unspoken bonus: there is a hot tub! There is no mention of this in other reviews or the welcome folder onsite, but be sure to bring bathing suits! Will def stay here again

Went with a close friend to unwind and relax for the weekend. The living space is comfortable and with some lo-fi music on their sound bar, it felt like home. My guest would have appreciated some blinds or covers on the living area's windows as they were using the pullout bed, but the fences give a decent level of privacy.

My wife and I could not have been happier with our stay at The Nest. The cottage is so cute and set up so well for two people. I think the only thing we had any complaints about was simply that the shower was small. However, with that said, it wouldn't stop us from staying here again. It was within walking distance of the center of town, super clean, I received all of the check in instructions well in advance of our stay. Would definitely recommend to others and plan to return to Idyllwild and hope to stay here again. Thanks so much!

We really enjoyed our stay! The cabin is super charming, well equipped and has a beautiful patio. The bed is really comfortable and everything was super clean.
The location is perfect, close enough to the village but still quiet and local. The neighborhood is beautiful, with tree lined trees and walking distance to hiking trails.

This was a darling little cabin. Very clean and comfy. Not really walking distance into the town , but close. We didn't cook in the kitchen, ate out, but all the main essentials there to prepare simple meals. Bed was comfy with nice linens. The yard of is very private with a fence all around, this neighborhood is very quite and peaceful. Great getaway!!! Would recommend

We very much enjoyed our stay at The Nest. It is a lovely home, very near the Idyllwild business district. The home is comfortable and well appointed. I would highly recommend this spot for a couple spending a little time in the area.
