The Property

Take a scenic mountain drive up the San Jacinto Mountains just East of Los Angeles and find yourself nestled amongst the pine trees in Idyllwild, California. Welcome to our Whimsical Cabin In The Woods, a beautiful three-bedroom cabin located on a quiet mountain road in one of Southern California’s best kept secrets.

The Whimsical Cabin In The Woods is an alluring two-story property that has been lovingly restored and redecorated by the homeowner. Cozy up next to the wood burning stove underneath the wood vaulted ceilings and enjoy the calming atmosphere that only the mountains can provide. The cabin offers a fully stocked kitchen for all of your cooking needs, a beautiful principle bedroom with floor-to-ceiling windows, and a kid's room with a bunk bed and an additional pull-out trundle bed. The property has an additional suite with a day-bed and en suite half-bath located via a separate entrance on the second story.

The best part about this cabin is the large charming outdoor spaces. The entire property opens to an expansive backyard that provides great space for enjoying the mountain air. The back yard features an outdoor dining bistro set for 4 and 2 full size picnic tables.

    Enjoyed our stay in this comfy cabin. Great outdoor space and hot-tub. Well-appointed with toiletries and nice note from owner. Only minor inconvenience is no dishwasher. Very much enjoyed our stay and hope to return!

    I had left a negative review prior to discussing a couple of issues with the owner, but since talking with her, she set things right. Overall our stay was good, the cabin is lovely and we had a great time.
