Cozy and inviting mountain cabin with great home essentials & large deck

Ideal for a family reunion or friend getaway, this cozy Idyllwild vacation rental sleeps up to 10 and features wonderful home essentials that will make everyone feel right at home.

Idyllwild is a serene and peaceful town, just large enough to offer delicious eateries and shops, but small enough to give you a sense of the carefree mountain life. Spend relaxing mornings around the house, or head out to explore nature along nearby forest trails.

This lovely two-story cabin is welcoming and sure to create the perfect space to enjoy quality time with loved ones. Gather outside beneath the covered patio, or on the spacious deck to chat as the sun sets and dine on tasty home-cooked meals prepared right inside in the full kitchen. Just bring along fresh ingredients, and meals are easily tossed together using the major and small appliances (dishwasher, coffeemaker, mixer, and blender provided).

Gather the family together to watch a VHS on the flatscreen TV in the den or a DVD on the TV upstairs. To make memories, you might head to the living room to play games and chat for hours before bed.

Up to 10 travelers can comfortably sleep here among the four bedrooms and sleeping den. Upstairs are three more bedrooms - the master bedroom with a queen bed, the first guest room has two twin beds, and the second guest room has a full bed and twin bed. Two full bathrooms are great for refreshing showers each day as well.

More great amenities include a washer and dryer and WiFi.

Walk to eateries and shops, or take a short drive into Idyllwild Village to browse galleries and find the perfect souvenir. Ample trails can be found around every corner, including at nearby Humber Park and Deer Springs Trail. Idyllwild Park is the perfect spot for a picnic after a nice walk. Just nine miles north is Lake Hemet Recreation Area, which has fun activities like kayaking, fishing, and paddleboarding.

There's no doubt everyone will love a nice vacation at this Southern California vacation home. Reserve your stay today!

    We rent a cabin each year to celebrate New Years with a group of friends. We were very pleased with the cabin.

    If you're doing any serious cooking, you may wish to bring some of your own equipment although the basics are covered in the home.

    The property was nicely located. Few miles drives to nice hikes. Very peaceful and enough space for bigger groups(10-12).

    Property was clean.

    If you are looking for a cabin that is clean, affordable and big enough for a large group this would be a good choice. The cabin is in a convenient location, not too far from town (less than a mile). But it is definitely not anything fancy. The bedrooms could use some new bedding and furniture. And while there was a TV with Netflix access, there was no cable which came as a disappointment to those in our group who wanted to watch some football on Saturday. Overall, if you are just looking for a place to lay your head at night, it's a good option. But if you want something with upgraded amenities, this may not be the place for you.

    This house needs work. There are outlets that don't work, lights and thermostats that don't work. it needs pots and pans in the kitchen. Bring your own, burnt food on the bottom of the pots that are there. Clean the dishes before putting them in the cupboards.
    Update the furniture. The back portion of the lazy boy chair in the main room broke. It was put back in place but no-one wanted to sit in it after that. The carpet is dirty, maybe replace all carpeting with laminate flooring? It just really needs updating.
    If this cabin had all the maintenance items repaired and it was cleaned up it would be a nice place to stay for the weekend or longer.

    Overall the property is ok. Just minor things that we need are not there.

    This cabin, although spacious for a large group, is past its prime and could use some updating - and a thorough cleaning.

    Manager Response:

    We are actively working on deep cleans in all of our homes in the area.
