Le Petite Chateau is secluded, yet offers a perch mid-way between Strawberry Creek and North Circle Drive so guests can walk to the Idyllwild Village shops and restaurants. Surrounded by forest, Idyllwild County Park and Nature Center are a mile from your front door, and climbing is within three miles at Suicide or Tahquitz Rock.
The two-story cabin was refurbished, offering hints of French blue, red, and yellow. Social areas are provided on the main floor, and the lofted bedroom features a queen bed and en suite bath with deck access. Two guests are invited to share the sunny space. There's also a sofabed downstairs for another sleeping option. You'll feel pampered with the master bath which boasts a jetted tub and shower combo!
The living room is intimate, offering a lovely wood fireplace with a classic marble surround and antique maple mantle. Get cozy on the loveseat by the firewith a book from the library, or write a postcard to those back home on the antique secretary desk. You'll never lose touch with news or your favorite shows thanks to cable, a DVD player, and in-house WiFi.
At mealtime, treat that someone special to a home-cooked feast! The kitchenette is fully outfitted with breakfast bar seating and the essentials (including a wine rack) with a miniature refrigerator and gas oven/stove. If the sun beckons, you can enjoy dinner and cocktails outside on the enclosed patio, or look for shooting stars on the deck! The hot tub is private, located just below the deck so you can enjoy the bubbles with your sweetheart.
Beyond your charming chateau, outdoor recreation opportunities are endless! Hike portions of the famed Pacific Crest Trail which runs along the San Jacinto mountain range, or stroll hand-in-hand through the Alpenglow Lilac Gardens. Bring fishing poles and your sun chairs for days spent at Lake Hemet or walk to the nearby Idyllwild Village and grab sweets at Oma's European Bakery and Restaurant.
While small, the community offers a vibrant arts scene, hosting an international film festival, art galleries, and year-round theater productions. If you're itching for an urban adventure and designer boutiques, Palm Springs is less than 50 miles away.
