Nestled in the San Jacinto Mountains, just east of Los Angeles, our Idyllwild cabin rentals offer serenity and tranquility in abundance. The scenic Coachella Valley, home to the city of Palm Springs, is to the east of this mountain range (an easy 50-mile drive away for day trips).
Perhaps the biggest draw for Idyllwild visitors is Mount San Jacinto State Park. Hike along more than 50 trails of varying levels, from easy family hikes to challenging treks. The more adventurous outdoor enthusiasts in the group can rock climb on Tahquitz Rock or Suicide Rock, both very well-known among climbing circles. One portion of the famous Pacific Crest Trail runs along the San Jacinto mountain range. Hike to the peak of the range for views of the Coachella Valley, and on very clear days, the Salton Sea. Love to bring your dog along for the hike? You're in luck---we offer a great selection of dog-friendly rentals.
Since 2010, Idyllwild has been the home of the Idyllwild International Festival of Cinema, showing over 50 international selections every January. This fast-growing festival continues to gain popularity, with more films shown every year.
The home of the Stratford Players, Idyllwild also draws theatre enthusiasts. The Players perform everything from traditional Shakespeare to recent Tony award-winning productions. Their most famous production, Will in the Woods, is held every fall, and features selections from various Shakespeare plays and sonnets in their beautiful outdoor location.
With the famous desert city of Palm Springs just east of the mountains, you're only a short drive from relaxing poolside beneath waving palms.
