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.
The Whimsical Cabin is dog friendly for 1 dog up-to 50lbs. We ask guests to pay an additional $35/dog/night and a $500 refundable pet damage deposit. Dogs must be crate trained for when the owner is away from the property. Guests must sign the dog waiver included in our rental agreement. Guests must notify Altez Vacations prior to their arrival if they are bringing a dog.
The cabin is located just three miles from downtown Idyllwild-Pine Cove, 2 miles to the Idyllwild Nature Center, and a scenic nine miles to the Mt. San Jacinto State Park. The downtown area provides great eateries and entertainment including local shops, wineries, and the newly renovated Rustic Theater. There is an abundance of gorgeous hiking trails perfect for either a quick stroll and a picnic, or more strenuous hikes to epic vistas overlooking the surrounding San Jacinto Mountains. For day trippers looking to explore local Southern California the property is located only about an hour from Palm Springs and about two hours from the world-renowned Joshua Tree State Park.
The Whimsical Cabin is located in a small residential neighborhood with close by neighbors. Due to the terrain of the neighborhood sound is easily carried. We ask that all guests please be respectful of our neighbors. Quiet time for the property is from 10PM – 8:00AM. Parties or loud activity past 10PM will not be tolerated and will be subject to $250 noise violation plus additional fines issues by Riverside County.
**Due to the mountainous terrain of the cabin, SoCal Edison frequently has Maintenance Power Outages during periods of expected high wind or other periods of high fire risk weather. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause**
