Comfy cabin in the heart of Idyllwild sleeps four.

Relaxed and cozy vibe. Nothing fancy. Our home away from home where we hang with our friends and dog friends. Large fenced yard and a short walk to town.

The space
This lovely home sleeps four. (two twin beds, one queen)
Super comfortable laid back environment with an updated kitchen and bathroom. Relax on the porch and breathe in the fresh pine air.
We find the quiet soothes worries away...

It's an old school cabin, run on well water which is awesome to drink! We are not fans of single use throw away culture and we love the lifestyle of repair and reuse and repurpose.

The house is on a fenced half acre so your dog will have as much fun as you!
Walk a few blocks and you have all the conveniences of a friendly and quaint town center. Restaurants, a movie theater, coffee shop, health food and grocery stores, pizza place, post office, art'll find it all within walking distance.
Walk just a block further and make your way down to Strawberry Creek.
And of course there are walks and hikes and mountain biking trails all close by. Tahquitz Peak, Lilly Rock, Suicide Rock.
There's a Ranger Station just a few blocks down the road for hiking tips or you can check out the nature center as well for trail guides.
There is Fulmor Lake to play in or fish, or rent a boat on Hemet Lake just a 15 minute drive.
So much to explore in this beautiful enclave!

The house has two bedrooms, one with a queen bed, the other with two twin beds. The attic is carpeted and comfy for kids to play in. There are some fun board games downstairs. And lots of videos too which you can watch on the tv up in the attic while you lounge on a beanbag chair...

We want to mention that we don't have AC. A few folks have been disappointed about that so we want to make a point about that. We do have two fans, and a swamp cooler which can be used on hot and dry days, and we find that if we open the windows in the evening it always cools down usually into the 50's or 60's at night. But for those of you that really enjoy having the AC on, this probably isn't the spot for you!
This home is still a bit of a work in progress.. But nevertheless, it is equipped with the basics and it's a comfortable and lovely spot for low maintenance types who are content with the simple things in life! (i.e. no cable tv...though we do have internet service!)
I try to be as flexible as possible with the check in/out timesl, and if I don't have other guests checking in or out I am happy to accommodate early check-in... But in many circumstances I will need to adhere to the 3PM check in and 12PM check out times...Thank you!!

(During the Holidays I generally stick to a three day minimum stay. I do consider one night rentals, but generally don't book those far in advance. If your trip is over a week away, I usually ask for a two night minimum, but if it's coming up soon and the place is available I'm happy to rent for one night! Thanks for understanding!)

Where you’ll be

Idyllwild-Pine Cove, California, United States

We love that we can walk to town! We are so close to the shops and restaurants, yet still immersed in nature.

I enjoy living in Venice but I also love to get out of the city when I can! I'm a fan of the mountains, a bikeride, a good book, dogs, water... I try to leave things better than I find them... clean up this world a little and not consume more than I need! Our throw-away culture makes me sad sometimes...

During your stay

Most likely I won't be around, though occasionally if I am in town I may do some yard work or a dump run or something of that sort...
