Peace & rejuvenation is what you will find at the Wildland Retreat Space. Located along Strawberry Creek, the land offers access to nearby hiking trails, with a spectacular view of Lily Rock just down the street. Inside you will find soothing neutral tones & a commitment to eco-friendly, organic, vegan & upcycled materials. The bedroom, a haven for deep relaxation with forest views.

The space
Covid Cleaning Protocol: We are taking extreme measures to thoroughly sanitize between guests (including committing to AirBnB's Covid Cleaning Protocol, bleach & alcohol surface sanitizing, plus sage smudging & open window period to cleanse the air). In addition, a highly effective 72% alcohol sanitizing spray will be available for your use throughout your stay.


The Wildland Retreat Space is the lower level of a 2 story Octagonal "tree house" nestled in the Pines, right on Strawberry Creek. Designed with your every comfort in mind, the Retreat Space includes:

- Private Entrance, the entire lower level is all yours
- Vegan Down-Alternative Duvet
- Luxe Linens
- Spa Robes
- Certi-PUR Memory Foam Mattress Topper
- French Press + Local Coffee
- Creekside Sitting Area (the creek is seasonal, sometimes runs all year, some years it just runs a few months. Still a beautiful place to sit regardless of the water flow)
- Forest Views
- Binoculars for Birdwatching
- Bohemian Hammock
- Eco-friendly / Non- Toxic Cleaning
- Full Bathroom
- Strong central heating system & insulation keeps you cozy in winter.
- 3 powerful ceiling fans, top-tier insulation + 4 breezy windows & lots of shady trees keep you cool in warmer months - even on the hottest of days!
- Central Heating System keeps you toasty warm in winter months
- Brita Filtered Water
- Organic Bath & Body products, courtesy of Wildland Organics
- Pets Not Allowed Under Any Circumstances - see below for details
- Children Under 12 Not Allowed Under Any Circumstances - due to open access to a waterway.

We have a deep commitment to eco-friendly, non-toxic, vegan, & upcycled materials - which you will find throughout the space. We use only non-toxic, natural cleaning supplies - 100% cotton sheets, and all vegan materials throughout the home - including a cozy down-alternative duvet.

You will find the kitchenette stocked with local coffee, raw sugar, sea salt and organic pepper for your enjoyment. Please note this space features a "kitchenette", not a full kitchen - which includes a 2 burner hot plate, 1 pan, 1 pot, a microwave, mini-fridge, and an array of plates/mugs/utensils.

Because this guest suite functions as a retreat space, there is no television available. There is, however, high-speed internet if you would like to bring a computer or tablet to stream. As mentioned, this space was designed to be a place for quiet contemplation - please no parties, no smoking, NO PETS, no children under 12, and no additional guests without expressed permission.

The Retreat Space sits on the same property as the Wildland BE WELL Yurt several yards away. Both the Yurt and the Retreat Space have exclusive access to their own designated outdoor areas, along with access to some common/shared spaces throughout the property. You are welcome to book both spaces for groups of up to 6, please message us for details.

For a truly relaxing experience, we especially recommend spending some time in the sitting area by the creek. Directions to hiking trails plus recommended sightseeing, shopping and restaurants can be found on our @wildlandorganics instagram story highlights titled "Visit Idyllwild".

As hosts, we live upstairs with our cat and small dog, so while we do our best to preserve a quiet & contemplative atmosphere for our guests - you may hear sounds of everyday life from our living quarters. The dog is usually quiet as a mouse (unless the UPS man shows up, haha!). We also provide a sound machine for the bedroom, and multiple fans to muffle any noise you might hear.

Regarding our "NO PETS" policy for guests: The reason for this policy is that our sister lives in this space part-time and is severely allergic to animals, "hypoallergenic" or not. We have completely sealed off the lower level of our home to be a sanctuary for her, and for other guests that share her health condition. We respectfully request you DO NOT ask to bring your pets, regardless of their certifications. Please understand this is a personal home, as well as a sanctuary for a loved one - and we wholeheartedly request that you respect our rules.

As an offering of gratitude for visiting without pets, we are happy to provide each guest a taste of the Wildland experience. Our company, Wildland Organics, specializes in mindful, minimalist offerings for hair, body, and home that you will get to experience throughout your stay. Luxurious and organic oils, soaps, shampoos, body wash & candles made right here in Idyllwild will be at your disposal to enjoy. You will also receive a welcome gift bag to take home with you, featuring special surprise gifts.

If you like what you see, we also have a shop in town called WILDLAND that we invite you to visit. We offer special guest-only discounted offerings at the shop year round. Upon booking, we will also provide you with a detailed & curated guide to the best coffee & restaurants in town, along with shopping and hiking recommendations as well.

We look forward to hosting you at the Wildland Retreat Space!
