Booking & Availability

2 Brooks Idyllwild Vacation Cabin has been a family cabin for over 25 years. It was built in 1964 and was expanded and remodeled in 1994. It’s architecturally interesting design caught Hollywood’s eye and the cabin was used as the primary location for a movie titled “Don’t Look Back” in 2013.

There is an extensive library of books in the house ranging from serious to humorous, factual and fiction. If reading isnโ€™t your thing watch a movie on the Smart TV with streaming service. Connect your phone to the Soundbar and kick back and enjoy. If games are more to your liking, there is a selection of family-friendly games, cards, poker chips and puzzles to while away the time.

It is a place to enjoy spending holidays, summer and winter, and it holds many happy memories for all who stay there. In winter it is a great place to relax with a cup of something warm and read a book in front of the fire. In the summer, the grand pine trees shade the house and keep it cool and comfortable without need for AC.

The cabin is so comfortable and cozy, clean and equipped with all you need. There is the creek by the cabin which is so nice to hear the sound. The patio area is very nice and therapeutic by the nature. The host (kelly) and co-host (Erin) are fast responsive and great at detail instructions. We will definitely 💯 be back at this place.

The beds were very comfortable and the kids loved the upstairs bedroom. Very close to town and hiking trails. We will definitely come back and stay here again.

Our family absolutely loved our stay at Kellyโ€™s cabin! It was our first time staying in an A-Frame and it was magical. Perfect location- walking distance to town- lots of open space to play in the snow in front of the house and in the neighborhood. Cozy, comfy, felt just like home and super fun! We canโ€™t wait to come back.

We had a fantastic stay! Kelly was SO responsive and accommodating. The cabin was a dream. A fantastic location. Secluded beautiful setting, but a very quick walk to town. It was pretty cold outside, but the cabin was very easy to warm at the times we were in, with central heating, fireplace and space heater in the master. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

We have stayed at Kelly's 2 Brooks cottage several times and always enjoy our stay. The place is comfortable, clean, and well-appointed with everything we need to cook, relax the fire, and walk to town. 2 Brooks is pretty much the only place we'll stay in Idyllwild at this point. She also has a downstairs studio available which makes it very convenient for traveling with another person, friend, or relative. Five stars!

This is a lovely, comfortable home in walking distance to town. Kelly was very helpful in every aspect and extremely prompt with answers to questions. We visited in winter and Kelly had the driveway plowed for our departure. She worked with us to allow an early check-in. The only thing I would mention is the "en suite bathroom" in the third bedroom is a toilet and sink separated by a screen. It's not a separate room. Not a problem for us but be aware.

We were moved here after a maintenance issue arose at our original booking, but it was a happy accident. The cabin is clean and bright but still cozy. It had everything we needed from bathroom supplies, to a well stocked kitchen, to games and entertainment. The writers nook up in the loft library was my favorite part. The bed was very comfortable. We enjoyed being able to walk to town. Would definitely stay here again, this time on purpose!

My wife and I had a great last minute stay at Kellyโ€™s place. The house is walking distance from town and it was super easy to access the hiking trails in the area. It was snowy when we stayed and the driveway and walk were all clear for us and the house was plenty warm. We really enjoyed watching movies by the fire and playing some of the board games that were on hand. Weโ€™d definitely stay again!

2Brooks A Frame was just as comfortable as described, offering generous space and amenities so that we felt very at home in someone else's home. Our hosts were pleasant, and hospitable and checked in with us to make sure all was well. It was so quiet, relaxing and the smell of the pines combined with wood stoves/fireplaces burning permeated the air to our delight. Personally, for us, a walk from the cabin to town would not have been easy as the roads are well traveled and there are no sidewalks. Having said that it takes just minutes by car to be in town and parking is not a problem. However, walking the neighborhoods and driving to locations like Inspiration Point are very enjoyable. The scenery is lovely! We particularly enjoyed dining at Ferro's and would highly recommend that establishment for delicious food and great service. We tried a few other eateries but Ferro's was ***** and got our vote. Guests should feel very confident that if you decide to stay at one of Kelly's homes in Idyllwild, you will enjoy it. This was our first visit to Idyllwild and it was "IDYLL", so ideal that we will return!

This place had so much character, it was simply amazing. It was close to town to either walk or go for a bike ride and grab a bite to eat at the brewery or coffee at Higher Ground. I would definitely come here again. The kids loved the backyard area so we were able to make memories while relaxing out on the deck. Simply classic.

The stay at 2 brooks was phenomenal to say the least. I came to stay here because my grandma was in town and had never had an authentic cabin retreat. I thought it would have been like other cabins Iโ€™ve stayed at in the Big Bear area but no, this place far exceeded my expectations. The hosts were wonderful and very quick to reply to any inquiries or comments I had. They were very hospitable even without meeting them in person. The cabin was amazing as well. It was a comfortable homely place. Not some hotel like experience. It had life to it. It was clear to see that at one point a family grew up here. It just made the experience that much better, to know that it was truly an authentic experience. The view was extraordinary as well. Nature with itโ€™s true beauty just five steps away from the door. It was a great hiking spot. But the coziness of the back yard and just talking over a cup of coffee never let us start our day early. That was okay though, because we were with family in a place that seemed oddly familiar, maybe it was the wilderness or maybe it was just us being together. But I do know that this home brought it all and made the experience much more meaningful. I do hope to come back again and spend much longer here, I do hope I can make it by maybe winter. I really do recommend this stay!!!

We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful place, especially all the books in the house and the large master bedroom windows. It is ideally located in the woods, with a minute drive to the restaurants, stores, community park playground for the kids, and very close to the hiking trails. The owners are attentive and fast to respond. I highly recommend this place for a comfortable and relaxing gateway.
