Quiet, warm cabin in wooded setting w/ foosball table and room for the family!

This wonderful Idyllwild vacation rental with mountain views has everything you and your loved ones need for an unforgettable trip to this beautiful town! With its ample entertainment options, all the comforts of home, and room for as many as six guests, you may never want to leave.

This cottage is located about a mile and a half from the center of town (and just half a mile from Idyllwild Arts Academy), so it's easy to experience everything from this central location. Of course, you'll also be near world-class outdoor activities including hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, and much more, though you may be content to stick close to town and enjoy all it has to offer.

Climb the stairs to reach the front door, and step inside to find a warm and welcoming interior. The upstairs living room boasts a nice view of the surrounding woods, and you'll love listening to the sound of the fireplace as you relax. Start your mornings out right by sipping your coffee out on the nearby balcony.

The kitchen, also located upstairs, is all you've ever dreamed of! With stainless steel appliances, plenty of space, and beautiful lighting, you'll want to make breakfast, lunch, and dinner here. There's even a dishwasher, so you can focus on cooking instead of cleaning. Enjoy your homemade meals at the dining table for four.

With two bedrooms and additional sleeping spaces, this cabin sleeps six. The first bedroom has a queen-size bed, and the second has a unique bunk set with a double mattress on the bottom and two twin mattresses on the top. There is also a futon in the upstairs living room, plus a futon mattress that can be laid on the floor downstairs. This arrangement is perfect for a family or a group of friends that is looking to spend most of their time out and about!

The cottage's one bathroom is extremely spacious. Outfitted in white cabinetry and silver accessories, it is both modern and traditional. Plus, it includes a shower/tub combination. A washer and dryer are provided for guests' convenience.

Throughout the house, you will find all sorts of entertainment options, including a foosball table, books, board games, cable TV, and WiFi. Nobody will be bored here!

This cabin is nestled in the woods - where the squirrels are your closest neighbors - which allows for plenty of relaxation and quality time with your guests. Here in Idyllwild, you'll surely want to breathe in the fresh air and appreciate the beauty of nature. There are all sorts of outdoor activities, though some guests may prefer to stick closer to town and explore its eateries and shops. You could even catch a play!

Ready for some fun? Book a stay at this Southern California vacation rental and take the whole family to one of the area's most scenic destinations!

Clean cabin with lots of linens. The kids loved the bunk beds. The two fire places were awesome. Short drive to town.

We loved the nature. The family setting. The beds were very comfortable. Beautiful location, we had an American Eagle and squirrels on the decking. A few dear and coyotes. Absolutely loved it.

Place was very clean and spacious. Foosball table ia a great addition to the home, kids loved it. Very close to the town, all utilities worked great warm water oven and fridge with great water pressure. Already planning our next trip.

We loved this house, it was perfect for five women celebrating life and making memories with our friend fighting stage 4 breast cancer. The house was well furnished and clean and located near town. I would definitely stay there again.

We loved everything about our stay at poochs palace. Right down the road is strawberry creek where you can find some pretty awesome swimming holes and trails to hike. The locals call it “the grotto”. We will definitely be back. Love love love!!!!

The house is in a quiet area, but not to far from Idyllwild downtown.
Neighborhood was nice.
It has everything for you to feel at home. except a microwave.
Nice view from the balcony and living room.
Suggest to Arrive before dark in order to find the way around since there is no street light.

The house has good potential, but unfortunately we were surprised when we arrived at the poor condition of many things. The carpet was simply disgusting and needs to be replaced. The heating system just didn't work well and we found ourselves freezing in the house. The water kettle was never cleaned and had mold inside it. All was not bad - the bathroom was very nice and roomy. However, the house in general was in a condition where we could simply not stay another day. We requested to leave and have Vacasa find us a new home. The good news is that the manager worked with us and found a new home. We moved all of our things to the new house and we were super happy with it. For this home however, I would say stay away until you hear these issues have been repaired. As far as we heard, the owner is trying to sell the home so I assume there is no interest in upgrading or fixing the current issues.
Manager response:
We are glad to see this guest was happy with the way things turned out though they were so disappointed with this house. The thermostat for the heater went out and has been replaced, and we have put the home on hold while we get a solid deep cleaning done. Thank you!

We enjoyed our stay at this home in Idyllwild. The booking, check-in/out process were easy, simple and fast. The price is very reasonable for how close this place is to downtown area. The house is clean and has all the basic amenities you need for a short stay but if you were to stay for 3-4 nights and plan on cooking at the house, make sure to bring your own pots/pans and some other kitchen supplies as they do not provide much for cooking. Also, there is only 1 roll of toilet paper and no paper towel, so make sure to bring those too. There currently is not a microwave in the kitchen but I'm sure they will refurnish that soon. With that being said, overall this place was still a very clean and comfortable place to stay with a gorgeous view of the mountain and a short distance to local shops and restaurants. We would definitely return.
Manager response:
The owner has just purchased new pans for the home, and we will follow-up with housekeeping about properly stocking the home prior to guest arrival. Thank you!

Everything was perfect. Nice spot that's not crowded and still close to town. Very serene.
Isaac B. Jun 2017
Great property for our family (2 adults and 2 children under 10) close to town and hiking/biking trails.
Jan H. May 2017
Lovely Home. Very comfortable

We all had a great time. My 5 year old almost beet me in chess.
Kevin B. Feb 2017
Place was inviting and cozy for a family of 5. Place was clean. Cookware could be improved (spatulas, griddle etc). I would bring a few of your favorite pots and utensils. Upon arrival sink was clogged (pulled in as cleaning person left) Garbage disposal not working - plumber came to fix next day after I left 2 message with property manger and 24 vacasa line and emailed property manager of how disappointed I was. However once the sink was fixed the next morning it was a enjoyable experience. Brink extra toilet paper or drop by the store as there was only 1 roll for 5 guests for a 3 night stay. Bathroom shower could use some elbow grease to clean mold as well as reinstall the tub surround as it buckles and is not a secure/dry fit. Close to town and Humber Park. Beds were comfortable and looking out the windows was refreshing. Overall a nice place.
Sharon L. Feb 2017

Patricio D. Feb 2017
We loved this place, we are planning on reserving Poochs Palace once a year.
Cheers

We really enjoyed Pooch's Palace. Comfortable beds, good heating system, surrounded by snow and pine trees. Couldn't ask for better!
Letitia L. Sep 2016
Very pleased with our accommodations, will stay there again and recommend it to other family members as well.
Anita B. Sep 2016
Pooch's Palace was a fantastic getaway weekend for us. The grounds are peaceful and sitting on the desk was extremely restful, during the day and evening. We saw 5 deer on the property as we pulled into the driveway on our fist evening! A perfect decision and we will definitely be back to Idyllwild!

My wife and I were gifted 3 days and nights at this location. Very nice cabin, fully furnished right down to plates and pots/pans. Easy access to town and surrounding neighbors very nice and helpful. We have already discussed plans to come back.
Sumeet B. Apr 2016
The secluded location will provide you with the quiet, tranquil vacation you need. The pictures are very accurate. The house has a modern feel to it with the upgraded stainless steel appliances. The skylights are amazing! The only downside to this property is that there are no curtains in the living room on the second floor. Privacy is not an option in this room. All the other rooms have curtains, but not this one. Besides this issue, the property is a MUST STAY.

As far as staff services, our representative did not return our calls or emails. If you have any questions, good luck trying to get them answered.
Anthony S. Apr 2016
Nice modern cabin with knotty pine, fireplaces. Quiet residential area in the woods, a few minutes to town. My 13 and 15 year old children, wife and myself enjoyed this place.
Becky R. Mar 2016
Stayed here with our 2 kids and it was just what we had hoped. Quiet, clean, central location. Great bird watching off the balcony and just a few minutes drive into town. The cabin was nicer than we'd expected and the foosball table was a nice bonus. Good times and would definitely visit again.
Kress M. Mar 2016
We had a fantastic stay. The house was tidy and had a great lay out. The beds were very comfortable and the place felt clean (top priority for me!). The kitchen was stocked with the necessary cooking supplies. The kids loved the fooseball. The house is on a very quiet street (we say just a couple of cars go by the entire weekend). I would definitely recommend Pooch's Place.
Tara B. Feb 2016
Thank you, idyllwild was great
Adria P. Jan 2016
This was our second year in a row staying at this home. The design and structure of the home, and the location, is perfect for us. We love the cabin feel with the skylights and two floors. The kitchen is perfect for feeding our family of six, stocked with most cooking utensils and appliances needed. Our young boys love playing around the house, and this year, they were so excited to play in the snow. Just a few minutes away we love to go hiking in Humber Park. Town is only a few minutes away so if we need something last minute, it is not a big deal. We'll be back next year!
Cathy R. Jan 2016
This home is just lovely & we can't wait to visit again! But believe them when they say you need a 4WD in the winter! If there is fresh snow & ice you will also need chains!
