Dog-friendly mountain retreat w/ well-appointed deck and private hot tub

Take the whole family away for a peaceful vacation in the beautiful San Jacinto Mountains at this cozy, mountain-themed home complete with a wood fireplace, well-appointed deck, private outdoor hot tub, and back yard perfect for the kids or up to two dogs for a small nightly fee.

This two-bedroom rental is located less than a mile from the heart of Idyllwild-Pine Cove for shopping, dining, galleries, and spas. Idyllwild also plays host to the International Festival of Cinema held every January as well as the Stratford Players theatre group known for award-winning productions and staged readings throughout the year. Please note that a 4x4 is required to get to and from this area during the winter months. This home also has an electric car charging outlet but guests must bring their own charging cable.

Tastefully blending rustic elements like hardwood floors and knotty pine ceilings along with modern amenities, this rental is a warm and welcoming home away from home.

Step through the front door of your rental into the living room, with its high ceiling, rock-faced wood-burning fireplace, and plush furniture. It's the perfect place to kick back with a good book or channel surf on the flatscreen, cable TV.

Belly up to the adjacent breakfast bar on one of three counter stools and enjoy snacks, coffee, or meals prepared in the full kitchen.

The kitchen includes drawers and cabinets stocked with essential cookware and dinnerware as well as an array of updated appliances including a bottom-freezer refrigerator, four-burner gas range, microwave, toaster oven, and coffee maker. During the warmer months, fire up the gas grill out on the well-appointed deck and have yourselves a fun family cookout.

There are two cozy bedrooms in this home. The master bedroom has a king-size bed and attached bath with standalone shower. The guest room is located right off the living area and includes a comfortable queen bed. With two bedrooms, a sofabed in the living room, and two baths, this home sleeps up to six guests very comfortably. The family dogs are also welcome to join you for an additional nightly fee.

Post updates and photos with ease thanks to the provided WiFi, and don't miss a moment of your favorite shows or movies on the three wall-mounted flatscreen, cable TVs. This home also comes with a private washer/dryer so that you can start each day of your vacation with fresh, clean clothes.

Relax on your furnished deck or soak away your cares in the private hot tub. Get out and about and enjoy more than 50 hiking and biking trails of varying difficulty that crisscross the region. And brave rock-jocks may want to gear up and try their chalked hands at climbing nearby Tahquitz Rock!

If you need a break from the hustle and bustle, reserve this cabin in the woods with us today and get ready to start your mornings to the sounds of nature instead of the din of city traffic.

Checked all the boxes

We absolutely loved this place. Clean, comfy, up to date interior. The kitchen has all the necessary items to cook breakfast and dinners. The fenced in yard is perfect for privacy and also allows dog owners to let their fur babies run around without worry. The yard is nice to sit and enjoy the surroundings, drink your cup of coffee in the mornings and have a nice glass of wine in the afternoon. The jacuzzi is an additional bonus. We will be back. Felt like home. Thank you Crows Nest! ❤

We had an awesome time here with our two kids and dog. It was quiet, peaceful, and the layout of the home felt roomy. Plenty of towels, toilet paper, paper towels, and dish soap. Even on a very hot day in idyllwild the cabin stayed cool.

My friend and I needed a place to stay while we attended a week long art class in Idyllwild. The Criw’s Next was remote yet just half a mile from town. The bedrooms were lovely, the beds comfortable and having two bathrooms was a plus. The TV had plenty of station options, the outside had tables and chairs to enjoy the evening air. My only suggestion is that the kitchen could be better stocked with some essential supplies such as aluminum foil, handiwrap, olive oil, condiments, etc. In other homes I have stayed in, the kitchens were well stocked and had welcome books to explain how things worked, where the nearest bakery, coffee shop, etc. are located and a guest log with feedback, comments from other guests.
Enjoyed our week!!!

Truly a relaxing location. We enjoyed coffee in the morning and afternoons spent reading on the deck, while hummingbirds and butterflies danced among the blossoming lilac bushes. What a treat to find the cabin very well maintained and a fully equipped kitchen. The close proximity to hiking trails and downtown Idywilld made for a wonderful vacation.

For 2 or 3 and a dog, it is perfect and in the perfect place.

The house was very well appointed and the location was perfect. Beautiful views from the deck of all the wonderful trees in the area. Close to town. Comfortable beds and sitting areas. Perfect for three of us and one pup.

What a great retreat from the desert heat! After golfing in 95 degrees, it was refreshing to drive back up the mountain and relax in the hot tub and sleep with the windows open. The space of this cabin is perfect for two couples and the area has a lot to offer with hiking, shopping and surrounding beauty.

Perfect location, super clean, dog- and kid-friendly!

My husband, yellow dog & I did a 4-day/3 night getaway from LA. First time in Idyllwild & we had a lovely time. The house is super tidy & looks as though it's been updated in recent years. The indoor fireplace is awesome & the outdoor hot tub is fantastic. We only ate out twice (#1 the brewery, super friendly staff & good brews, #2 FERRO first class Italian cuisine, wine & also had a jazz band playing on Tues. night). We went on a long-ish hike around the Nature Center on the first day & took advantage of Karen at Idyllwild Massage the second day. The gas grill outside was great to use. All in all, the perfect spot for a couple. There isn't much of an indoor dining area to accommodate more than four, so if traveling in the colder months, may need to get creative with this one if you're with more than four. Would love to stay at this place again!

This was a special spot to share with our adult children and 21 month old grandson. Beautiful outside grounds for the little guy to roam and a good size deck to enjoy the out of doors. Clean sheets and plenty of towels. We hope to return!

A very nice home, great creative space. I will be staying here again in the future (If they’ll have me).
William B. Oct 2017
Perfect home for a get away. Everything is perfect. Can’t miss with this beautiful home. So cozy, cute, and comfortable.
Meredith N K. Oct 2017
The house was gorgeous and really comfortable! All of the appliances worked really well, including the jacuzzi and grill. The house looks bigger in pictures than it is in person, but it is still big and comfortably fits 4 people. The master has a huge california king. Make sure to bring your own cooking supplies if you stay here, like oils, tin foil, sponges etc since the kitchen was fairly empty.

The Vacasa staff - i.e. Nikki and Susan - were outstanding and attentive to all of our requests instantly. Five stars for their service - can't say enough great things about them. The house itself is cozy and comfy, especially for relatively short stays. For longer stays (more than a weekend) it could benefit from some upgrades in kitchen equipment and outdoor seating, but overall the house rates well compared to comparable rentals in Idyllwild.

Loved it.
Jolina B. Aug 2017
Lovely little house, surrounded with trees. Much more than I expected. My family enjoyed our stay! Dog and kids safe with the gate and driveway. Very close to the town but a good enough distance to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of being in the mountains
Jeffrey T. Jul 2017
Is an adorable cabin. My sister and friend stayed there while visiting me. It was an Idyllic piece of Idyllwild. I would highly recommend The Crow's Nest. The only issue we had was with the tv remote and instructions. Other than that it was just what they wanted. Thank you for allowing us into your home.

Nice, quite get away. Relaxing and comfortable
