Great location with a beautiful view of the mountains. The place a perfect stay for my boyfriend and I to make a quick getaway and provided us with everything we needed.

Bob (the owner) was incredibly kind and helpful but we booked through a third party which was very difficult to get ahold of. The house was extremely difficult to find as we did not know it was the guest home to the owners (therefore two homes with the same address). This house is hidden behind a narrow driveway that’s somewhat blocked by a large white dumpster and next to a house with the exact same color but one number different than the address. We searched for almost an hour before getting in touch with vacasa. The master bedroom is great. We went in July when it was incredibly hot and the 2nd room was very hot so just be mindful there is no central air but there is an AC unit in the master and kitchen. We were planning on Putting our 6 month olds crib in that room but we couldn’t because it was too hot. The deck is beautiful. Overall it has a homey cabin feel that many who retreat to idyllwild are looking for

The only issues are that it has a very tricky entrance, and the owners of the cottage live next to it.
