Spent two nights here to escape the OC. Family of four had a nice stay. Everything was great except that the heating situation wasn't ideal. One gas-powered stove in the corner of the ground floor and one tiny electric fan/heater couldn't keep the place much above 60 if running constantly. Glad that we brought blankets. We would stay here again, for sure, if the heating situation were improved or in a warmer time of year. Beds were comfy, bathroom nice, kitchen had everything needed (pots and pans were a little abused, but what to expect?).

We had the privilege of staying at this cozy cabin during the winter with lots of snow :) Check in was incredibly easy and any issues the owners were very quick to respond. Everything you need for your stay is provided and the beds are so comfortable and soft. The furnace heater was perfect esp for drying the kids wet clothes from the snow. We appreciated the park passes that were provided to us during our stay as well. We can’t wait to come back to this cute modern cabin in the summer!

My kids (12&15) and I had a great get away at this stylish and cozy A frame cottage. It has been updated lovingly and was wonderful for our stay. We enjoyed excellent hikes in nearby Idyllwild park, relaxed, and even baked some holiday cookies!

This was one of our favorite places! It’s the perfect place to go if you want to relax. The cottage was very clean and had everything we could have needed and the location was conveniently located near hiking trails and the small town with easy access to restaurants and the grocery store. This cabin has everything you need to cook up a cozy meal. I wold recommend this to anyone looking for a unique and relaxing experience!!
