Beautifully remodeled mountain home with peaceful, private setting

Surrounded by towering pine trees, this Idyllwild retreat for five guests gives you the chance to unwind from the daily grind in the beauty of nature. Whether you're planning on getting out to explore the local attractions, or relaxing with a good book, this home gives you the best of both words.

Located just a block from the gently flowing waters of Strawberry Creek and a mile from Idyllwild Nature Center, you'll have local attractions at your fingertips. During the winter months, a 4x4 vehicle or chains may be required by Highway Patrol or Caltrans, depending on conditions.

Bright and cheery, the welcoming atmosphere is accented with crafted wood touches and plenty of space for everyone to spread out. Put your feet up and lounge on the couch while you connect to the WiFi to check the forecast before your next adventure.

Grab an ice-cold local microbrew and head out onto the private deck to watch the wind swirl through the trees as you fire up the gas BBQ to show off your grill skills. If it's too cold to cook outside, the spacious kitchen has everything you need to whip up a mouth-watering meal. With recently remodeled granite counters, stainless steel appliances, and a gas range, cooking for everyone will be a breeze. Let the dishwasher do the clean up while you unwind with a nightcap on the deck.

When it's time to turn in, this three-bedroom, two-bathroom home has room for up to five guests to stay in comfort. In the master bedroom you'll find a rejuvenating queen-size bed waiting to lull you into a peaceful night of sleep. The second room also boasts a queen-size bed, while the third room has a comfy twin-size bed and plenty of storage.

Spend the day hiking through the picturesque trails at Humber Park. Take the Tahquitz Peak or Devil's Slide trail to wander through the rugged landscape and take in the the stunning sights and sweeping vistas.

Take the quick 10-mile drive to Lake Hemet to get out on the waves. Kayak through the deep blue waters, or paddle along the shore on a SUP to get in some exercise while you enjoy the outdoors. Jump in line at the waterpark play areas on the lake for fun in the sun no matter how old you are!

The perfect spot to leave the hustle and bustle of city behind and revel in the peace of mother nature, this Southern California mountain retreat offers a spot to bask in it all. A damage waiver, covering up to $2,000 of accidental damage to the property or its contents, is included in the cost of your reservation.

Awesome CalvinWhat I loved about it is it is quiet just far enough out of the city and right tucked into the mountains very quiet and cozy
Julie P. Jun 2020
We loved staying at this cabin. It’s close to everything - 15 minutes to walk into the village center, just a quick drive up the hill to Humber trailhead. And the cabin couldn’t be cuter. Spic and span all the way around. Plenty of room in the driveway, a nice deck with an umbrella and gas grill, newly renovated kitchen and bathrooms.

everything is fine! there is a grill, fireplace, large kitchen, Parking!
all clear!
we really liked it!
Ron D. Dec 2019
We had an excellent time, this cabin is everything it is supposed to be on a beautiful property and the view of Tahquitz rock is amazing. Very quiet and quaint! We will be back!
John B. Dec 2019
Spacious with enough amentities to get by.
About 1 mile from down town and 1.5 miles from Humber Park Trail head.
Robert A B. Nov 2019
Perfect size for our family of four. The cabin was clean and comfortable and close to everything. Check-in instructions were clear. Had plenty of pots and pans to make breakfast and dinners.

Bonus: my daughter found two apple trees in the backyard with plenty of ripe apples. We’ll be back.
Valerie B. Oct 2019
Had a nice time in this comfortable, clean & convenient home. Close to town with all the amenities you’d expect. Nice updates throughout and well managed property.
Karen S. Sep 2019
This property has a great layout with three bedrooms, two baths. The interior appears to be brand new. It's extremely clean and airy. Can't beat it's close location to Humber Park and Devil's Slide trailhead. Also super close to town.
Janis C. Aug 2019
If only the cabin next door didn't have such loud rambunctious neighbors, this would have been perfect.
Unfortunately I was seeking peace and quiet. Only after asking the neighbors to not be so loud, did I enjoy it the most. Just did not like having to do that.

Loved this place
Terry F. Feb 2019
The beds were comfortable and the kitchen well equipped. It was an easy walk to town and sufficient parking.
Vanessa S. Oct 2018
The house is very warm and spacious. The pictures show pretty much what you'll find. Only some of the furniture is a little bit old.
ROBERT R. Sep 2018
Great location
Amber G. Jun 2018
The cabin was ok, a bit more shabby in person than the photos. The bigger issue is that it’s next door to another really large rental cabin. The guest had a weekend long “retreat” they told us, but they played loud music, used a mic with speakers and generally made it so we couldn’t have the windows open because it was so loud. They also started a fire in the backyard and we had to call Cal Fire. It’s unfortunate because this review isn’t so much about the cabin itself but the renters next door pretty much ruined the experience of a quiet weekend in the mountains.
Manager response:
We have notified the management company of the neighboring cabin and apologize for the disruption this guest experienced.
Michael R. Jun 2018
Cabin felt like home away from home. Very clean! Quality appliances! Nice bathrooms!
Robert P. May 2018

William G. May 2018

Jeanne R. Apr 2018
I think this home was very clean, the accomodations were perfect for my family and the location was fabulous. Loved everything about it
Mike C. Mar 2018
Nicest, most relaxing vacation we've had in a long time. Comfortable and with a full kitchen including dishwasher, coffee grinder and espresso maker. Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate with us and a 4 wheel drive would have helped a lot.
Rahma A. Mar 2018
Thank you very much
Katelynn E. Feb 2018
was a beautiful relaxing trip... The beds were amazing, the whole place was perfect
Nicole T. Jan 2018
Very nice cabin, the cabin has everything needed for an enjoyable stay. We made last minute reservations for a weekend stay. Everything was perfect, my grandkids enjoyed playing in the snow and we enjoyed watching them.
Joan V. Dec 2017
If you want to relax, away from the hustle and bustle of the city life... This is the place!😀
Paul F. Dec 2017
The management company failed to have the propane supply ready so everything stopped working. No gas, no heat, no stove, no oven, no hot water. It was 25 degrees outside. Major bummer!
Manager response:
We apologize for the issue with the propane. The propane company filled it up and forgot to reconnect it to the house. This has been addressed. Thank you!
Aaron B. Nov 2017
We stayed at this nice little home for a long weekend with our 2 kids. The house is very close to everything in Idyllwild but in a nice quiet neighborhood. This has to be one of the cleanest places we've stayed and everything was very comfortable. There's plenty of room for everyone with the 3 bedrooms & 2 baths and a nice little yard & patio. Would definitely stay here any time!
Kathryn M. Jul 2017
The house was very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the well-stocked kitchen which allowed us to cook meals for ourselves. The outdoor patio was a wonderful place to have a cup of coffee in the morning and to enjoy some quiet time in the evening.
Rita M. Jul 2017
We enjoyed our stay! House very comfortable and close to town. The only negative thing is that there was no air conditioning and we were there during a heat wave!:((( at least at night it was calling off!
Tara J. May 2017
What a great place to stay! The interior was practically all new and very clean. The kitchen was pretty well equipped with nice finishings. The microwave was not working so we called Vacasa customer service and someone at our door with a new microwave within an hour. Pretty great customer service!
We would absolutely stay here again.
Hannah . May 2017
Loved staying here. Would absolutely come back!
Christoph C. May 2017
That were pretty awesome days in Idyllwild. We can recommend this to anybody.
Anna H. Apr 2017
We enjoyed staying at this updated home in Idyllwild. It was a very quick drive into town, beds were quite comfortable and it had all the amenities we needed. Great deck for eating outside.
Steve D. Mar 2017
Don't want to let the secret out how great the place is. Want to rent again
Chris M. Jan 2017
Great location near all shops and dining. Make sure you have enough clean/ extra clothes. The cabin doesn't have a washer or dryer.
Tatiana J. Dec 2016
We had a great time relaxing in the home as a family. Just what we needed to get away. It was cozy and had all the convenience of being in our home. Thank you.
Wayne R. Nov 2016
great property only thing it needs is a washer and dryer.
Joe C. Oct 2016
A bike would have been nice...
Joel C. Oct 2016
We had a great time and really enjoyed staying at Casa Tahquitz.
Edison A. Sep 2016
Husband and I stayed here for 2 nights. Everything was very nice. Place was clean and well maintained. About .5 miles into town for nice restaurants and shopping. It was easy to find and the instructions were very good. We could only get the TV to work with Amazon Prime or Netflix. Maybe we were doing something wrong. Kitchen has new or newer pots and pans and pretty much everything you would need to cook a nice meal. There is a new patio table, chairs and umbrella out on the deck and we really enjoyed sitting out there reading the paper and eating dinner. The neighborhood is quiet. Heat and AC work well, along with a couple of ceiling fans. Has 2 queen beds (1 in each bedroom) and what I would call a youth bed in the 3rd bedroom. I don't think an adult would be comfortable in that bed, but it would be great for a child. We enjoyed this place enough we will be coming back again!
