Historic cozy cabin with large deck, original rock fireplace and loft!
Time will slow down as you unplug and unwind in this Idyllwild original retreat. This historic 1940s cabin is nestled among the pines and features a redwood deck and original details such as wide-paneled wood walls and ceilings. The lofted second floor sleeps four with two rustic log beds, and the living area has an original river rock wood-burning fireplace for those chilly mountain evenings.
The cabin is on a half-acre lot close to town and just a short walk to the Mile High Café. The Village is 0.7 miles away, where you can experience a variety of shops and restaurants, and for the more adventurous, Humber Park is under four miles away and offers numerous hiking trails with breathtaking views during the warmer months and many snow activities during the winter months.

Absolutely what I was looking for in an escape from the city. So quiet and cozy with a great view!
This cute little cabin was the perfect escape from the desert heat. Conveniently located close enough to town to walk to the restaurants and shops. It boast a large deck for hanging in your hammock or sitting in the stillness of the woods (bring your own hammock or chairs for sitting). The kitchen is small, with an awesome gas stove, small frig and pretty much anything you need to prepare meals. The living room is cozy with a fireplace and windows that open easily to bring in the fresh mountain air. The stairs to the loft bedroom are tight and steep but manageable. there are two beds I believe they are full beds. The mattresses should be replaced sometime soon, they had their day. The bathroom is small and tight with a very small shower (low water pressure). Despite some of these set backs, the cabin is an awesome deal and a great get away spot. Beats camping!!
We found Walden to to very cute, quiet, well equipped, clean and quaint. It is ideal for a small group, and provides a real woodsy cabin experience.
Place was clean, close to town and private. Beds were comfortable and little stove heater made the upstairs sleeping area nice and warm. The heater downstairs didn't seem to heat downstairs area very well, but it wasn't too bad for a one night stay. Lack of dry firewood and dripping shower were the only negatives of this place. Would recommend, but bring your own fire wood!
This Rustic little Cabin in the woods is exactly what we needed. Loved the escape from the city, having WIFI was nice and kept us entertained between the board games and laughing and having fun. We will definitely be back!
The location and the cleanness
Walden in the Woods was the perfect spot for a weekend getaway to unplug, unwind and reconnect with nature. Within walking distance of local cafes, shops and hiking, this was a great place to rest and relax. Already looking forward to another trip!
