So Cozy & Welcoming


My boyfriend and I stayed in Idyllcottage for two nights while we celebrated my boyfriend's birthday. It was our first time in Idyllwild and we were very happy with the cottage. It is decorated very well and feels so cozy and welcoming. There was some nice live music across the street on our first night. The walk into town was easy, yet you don't feel like you are too close that you don't have privacy. It was so nice to soak in the hot tub at night and look up at the beautiful starry sky. The cabin is on the small side, but the space has been utilized so well that it would be easy for quite a few more people to fit comfortably there! And the king bed in the downstairs bedroom is SO comfortable. I usually don't sleep that well in other peoples' beds, but I slept like a charm in that bed :) We definitely recommend the cottage and will most likely be back again with friends the next time.

A lovely gem in IDY


This place is such a lovely gem in IDY. We loved our stay here and immediately felt relaxed and happy after settling in. While small, the layout makes the most of this old, converted barn! The kitchen was nicely appointed with lots of knives, cutlery, dish ware and spices! The bathroom was small but the shower water was hot and plentiful. The beds were super comfy with nice sheets! That couch just sucked you in and wouldn’t let you go! The BBQ and hot tub were the icing on the cake. Both were used and they were great! All in all, we will be back! ?? it all!!

"Most comfortable bed"


I've been coming to Idyllwild for years (I've also stayed in Kelly's A-Frame), but I've never stayed where I could walk across the street to one of my favorite places to eat! The cabin was lovely and has one of the most comfortable beds (downstairs master) I've ever slept on in a rental!

Overall Great Experience


The cottage was so cute! It was just as charming as all the reviews say. We had the benefit of the new A.C. system and it made the cabin so comfortable. The neighbors were super friendly. And the proximity to Cafe Aroma, Idyology, and the town cannot be beat. All of the amenities you would find at a hotel, with the added benefits of being in a house, like spices and cookware. Overall great experience.

Fantastic Cottage in Idyllwild


We enjoyed our time at this fantastic cottage . It's close enough to town to go for a stroll, but quiet enough to hole up in and just relax . All the amenities were great. Well outfitted with anything you might need. Clean, well kept , and inviting. I would recommend staying here and would think that anyone staying here would have a great time.

The cabin was perfect.


The cabin was perfect. Amazing location, steps away from shops and epic hiking trails. Me and my family loved every second that we were there. I look forward to coming back soon.

A new annual trip to Idyllwild


My husband and I live in San Diego and wanted a relaxing weekend away. Kelly made our trip easy from the very beginning. The cottage was located perfectly within walking distance to everything! It was very clean, bright and cozy at the same time. Stylishly decorated I might add, with wrought iron chandeliers and a restoration hardware sofa. There were plenty of books, games and HBO for Game of Thrones on Sunday night. The cottage included every amenity that any traveler could ever think of. They truly thought of everything. We went for a hike one day and passes are required for vehicle parking.....those were provided. Idyllwild is filled with amazing restaurants, friendly people, and beautiful scenery. We plan to make Idyllcottage an annual trip. Thank you Kelly for sharing your beautiful cottage with us, it was hard to leave!

Perfect Getaway!


Stayed here for the first time, and definitely will be looking to come back whenever possible. This is a perfect 'get a way' weekend for my family. Their home is a cozy cabin in woods, but laid out well with a loft space that includes beds. We stayed the weekend with two younger children and was appreciative of the washer/dryer. Looking forward to another trip soon. Paul

Perfect family vacation


This is the cutest cabin. We were visiting Idyllwild for Thanksgiving weekend and this was the perfect spot. There was nothing that Kelly and Joey missed. High quality everything! My favorite spot was the "lounge" area in the living room. Perfect to read a book :) Beds were so comfortable and warm, kitchen had everything you would ever need, plenty of room for the three of us, warm during the cold nights, board games for family time, TV Netflix ready, and walking distance to town. Across the street is Cafe Amora (you must go there). We saw two deer the first night. Kelly and Joey were always available if we had any questions and very nice to deal with. We WILL rent for them again.
