About this listing
Serene Country/Foothills Home
Be sure to view our completely private, two-person country cottage rental at the same location as this two-bedroom home!:
These properties are recognized as featured vacation rentals on TripAdvisor!
(ALSO, the extensive House Manual you will automatically receive once booked is printed and available for your convenience when you arrive at the home!)
NOTE: WE have had several dozen guests since Christmas who are either return guests, or guests who have booked outside of the airbnb system(therefore no reviews with Airbnb), all of whom have left fabulous reviews in our guest books at the two properties detailing their wonderful visits!
Do you need a romantic weekend get-a-away? a relaxing few days to yourself? Enjoy our local mountains, right outside your front door! We all enjoy our peaceful existence here in Cherry Valley, and we hope you will too! Please read our wonderful guest reviews from other fabulous people who also appreciate life/travel/adventure as much as we do!
Your stay will include a serene 2-bedroom, 1.5 bath, country farm/guest home - you will enjoy the entire private home whether you are one guest, or four guests - which is nestled in the San Gorgonio Mountain foothills at a 2,800 ft. elevation.
We have two homes on a five-acre property - YOUR fully-furnished HOME is completely yours - close your doors and you have complete solitude and privacy!
This home is one-acre north of our private residence, and includes a master bedroom with queen bed and private 1/2 bath; 2nd bedroom has two twin beds, plus full bathroom in hallway.
Enjoy your fully-equipped kitchen - pots, pans, dishes, utensils, etc. Bring some groceries before your arrival and enjoy home-cooked meals on the oven/stove.
You will find a self-serve breakfast in the refrigerator, which is provided once on your first day, and may include our own pasture farm-fresh eggs(when available), bread, butter, fresh whole coffee beans(grinder provided), fresh cream, orange juice, and milk.
We grow apples, nectarines, plums, pears, peaches, figs, lemons, limes, grapefruit, walnuts, almonds, and maintain five-acres of land, including veggie gardens! All of these delicious items are available to our guests, when in season.
Dish Network is provided in both bedrooms, plus living room, and we also offer COMPLIMENTARY Verizon FIOS wireless internet during your stay!

Guest house is 30 miles from Palm Springs and be sure to visit the Living Desert Museum a bit further east; 20 minutes to the town of Redlands; less than 50 miles from Big Bear Lake, including Forest Falls just 20 miles away; and 20 minutes to the tranquil mountain town of Oak Glen, with excellent hiking trails! plus we are less than 50 miles west of the incredible Joshua Tree National Park! which makes for a fabulous day trip.
Another PLUS! Downtown Beaumont is famous for its amazing and numerous antique shops! All along 6th Street, right off Highway 10, you will find shops with hundreds of spaces filled with antiques and various collectibles.
We also have an additional 2-person cottage rental on this site: airbnb.com/rooms/253909
NOTE: We do ask that our guests have complete profiles with clear photos, personal information on each guest planning on staying, and the purpose of the trip. It is very important for us to know a bit about the wonderful people who are staying at our extra guest home while still maintaining privacy.
Interaction with Guests
I am a NON-Hovering Host! : ) but always available to my guests 24/7 if needed.
Peaceful, serene, clean country air... Take time to breathe...
A car is a must, although this area is wonderful for quiet, cool evening walks, and there are numerous trails within 1-5 miles..
Other Things to Note
Please leave home in excellent condition, like you found it - straightened up, rugs in place, furniture in place, wash all used dishes, kindly leave beds turned down for quick changing, and leave all trash bagged and placed outside the door.
Please DO Have a Great Relaxing Visit and enjoy the fresh mountain air, tranquility, and private grounds.
We would like to know a little about our guests upon reserving - where are you coming from? How many guests? Vacation or business? Nice to be familiar a bit with those who share our wonderful environment and guest home - while being sensitive to maintaining your privacy and enjoyment of your visit.
ALSO, please remember that we accommodate guests continually year-round, and we so appreciate your keeping the home in the condition in which you found it! We are not a hotel where a housekeeper comes in daily and immediately after guests leave :)
We appreciate seeing the house left in the same condition in which you entered it - if furniture is moved during your stay, kindly return it to its original place prior to your departure... Kindly leave beds pulled down so they can be easily removed for washing. It is requested that you please remove your shoes when in the house :) Wash all used dishes.
Also, we are a non-smoking house/property, with a recycle/reduce/reuse mentality - thank you for separating your trash during your stay! all veggies/fruit scraps go to our chickens and rabbits - please toss these vegetarian items into the back field south/west if the house where the chickens and rooster reside! They will be happy you did! Cans and plastics are also recycled. Extra large trash bags can be found under the china cabinet in kitchen to bag these items, and all other trash can be placed in the large black trash container in the back yard, south west corner of the house.
PLEASE BE CAREFUL when using the stove/oven. Insure that the burners you are turning on are the correct ones, and please do not leave the stove unattended when in use. Several guests have inadvertently turned on the wrong one, much to their surprise when they saw billowing smoke eating away the burner cover! Not good.... :0
PLEASE turn off heater/fans/air cooler when leaving the house, and turn down to lower settings at night .
Looking forward to your visit with us! Please feel free to ask any questions you may have regarding a possible stay with us.
IF WE HAVE AGREED THAT YOUR PETS WILL BE ACCOMPANYING YOU:
10089 FABULOUS FURRY FRIENDS PET POLICY:
I do allow pets. However, there are a few requests regarding our Fabulous Furry Friends! I ask that guests please bring all of their own pet bedding, toys, sheets, food/ water bowls, and a rag to clean paws before entering the home to insure back yard debris does not become a permanent part of the inside decor, etc! Things can be cleaned, but we all want to have a pleasant experience out of this mutual arrangement! - and we ask that our Furry Friends do not jump up on the furniture, beds, chairs, etc. and that they use their own bedding. Thank YOU sooooo much for your understanding!!!! :) I have spent many, many, many hours vacuuming, and taping up pet hairs and just had to crack down for my non-pet owners! We Love pets!! but for our guests without pets..... well, you know! Poor Them! :)
Please do keep an eye on those special members of your family - kindly check the back yard and other lawn areas every day, and please pick up all pet waste daily, bag it, tie tight, and place outside of your guest home to dry out, then deposit into the green yard waste container at the front of our house at the street, one house south of your guest home.
Thank you, again, for your understanding! Have Fun! Relax! Breathe… : )
