Self check-inEasily check yourself in with the lockbox.
Great location95% of recent guests gave this home’s location a 5-star rating.

This is another Melissa Wilson designed and managed Idyllwild home so being pampered and spoiled and having a 5 star treatment is always part of your stay. Check out my other vacation homes to see my superhost 5 star ratings and reviews at airbnb.com/rooms/11770906 & 19924620. I pay close attention to all the details like the plush bedding, the selection of pillows, the industrial style lighting throughout, and the drawers and cabinets filled with “oops, I forgot or ran out” items.

Thank you so much! This homey-like cabin in Idyllwild was unbelievable. We loved the backyard set up and the patio. The indoor’s modern art decor was amazing. Everything we expected, plus more! We can not wait until our next mini-vacay to the Little Middle.
