After a day of adventuring the surrounding area, relax and recharge in this 4 Bedroom/2.5 Bath mountain-side cabin offering gorgeous indoor/outdoor living spaces, Jacuzzi, unobstructed views of the San Jacinto Mountains, and all the amenities that allow you to enjoy your stay and fully immerse yourself in this comfortable home.

The property itself is split between two floors with guest bedrooms, the guest bathroom, as well as laundry facility on the lower floor, and an expansive open floor plan with the living, dining, kitchen, 1/2 bath, and primary bedroom and bathroom on the main floor. Almost every bedroom offers direct access to newly renovated wrap around decks that provide spectacular views of the surrounding area allowing you to reconnect with nature from the comfort of your bedroom and offering the perfect balance of indoor/outdoor living! The large primary bedroom includes a king bed and a private en-suite bathroom, while the other 1 1/2 bathrooms in the house are split between the remaining three bedrooms. The kid's room provides two bunk beds (3 twin/ 1 full), games, and a TV for your little ones. The first guest bedroom offers a queen bedroom with a cozy office space. The guest bedrooms open via double doors to the beautiful deck with seating area. The main floor living and dining area are bordered on two sides by south-facing floor-to-ceiling windows that provide expansive unobstructed views of the gorgeous mountains and pine forests and a perfect place to enjoy both the sunrise and sunset. This property is pet friendly! (Maximum 2 dogs – 75lbs/ dog)

The Location

The property is nestled into the mountain side and located off of a quiet and secluded residential street a very short drive from both downtown Idyllwild as well as the Idyllwild Nature Center. Downtown Idyllwild boasts a vibrant community of locally owned and operated artisan shops, restaurants, bars, and art galleries that provide all the delicious food, live entertainment, and activities one would wish for when visiting a small town (please see compendium when staying at property for local recommendations).

The Idyllwild Nature Center offers an idyllic setting to take in and educate oneself on the local flora and fauna that is unique to this mountainous region by visiting the museum and exploring the numerous scenic trails. Idyllwild's Tahquitz Rock, Suicide Rock, and Hiking Trail E306 offer world renowned rock climbing and bouldering and the mountain has countless trails for mountain biking as well.
