Idyll-Lodge is exactly what the name implies. A grand Lodge that offers the best of both worlds: a rustic, cabin-y feel with all the modern amenities. Cozy, yet spacious and private for a family, friends, or a couple looking for an extra special romantic retreat. While this cabin is new, our family business has been serving our valued guests for over 15 years. Click on our profile to view our 1500+ reviews!

Coming through the front entry, you will be greeted by soaring ceilings in the living room. Our grand river-rock fireplace stands tall and proud, drawing the eye upwards to the skylights and tall windows that surround it. Opposite the fireplace is the state-of-the-art kitchen, and in the middle, our 10ft Restoration Hardware sofa entices you to kick your feet up and relax while watching the fireplace roar or catching glimpses of the forest views from every angle.

๐Š๐ข๐ญ๐œ๐ก๐ž๐ง
Into the kitchen, you’ll find all the modern amenities. We have everything you need to cook a world-class meal: A commercial-size fridge and freezer, gas range and oven, Instant Pot Pressure Cooker, dishwasher, trash compacter, and ample countertop space. In addition, the kitchen is stocked with oils, an array of spices, and all sorts of cooking utensils that make for easy cooking and clean-up. The chef in the group can go to work while the others visit and watch on from the bartop that connects to the kitchen counter. Off the kitchen, is the formal dining room. A solid Oak, round dining table with service for six stands in the middle of the dining room that is framed by three walls of picture windows.

๐‹๐š๐ฎ๐ง๐๐ซ๐ฒ
Down the hall from the kitchen is the laundry room with a washer and dryer, and a door to access the two-car covered carport. Past the laundry room lives a half-bath to the right and the master bedroom to the left. 

๐๐ž๐๐ซ๐จ๐จ๐ฆ๐ฌ 
โœค The master has a TempurPedic Cal-King bed and massive en-suite with triple vanity, whirlpool bathtub, and tiled shower. Adjacent to the bed is a sliding glass door with forest views and access to the back deck. 
โœค Upstairs resides the family room and two remaining bedrooms. 
โœค Each upstairs bedroom has its own en-suite, King bed, and picture window overlooking Strawberry Creek that runs along the back edge of the property. 

๐…๐š๐ฆ๐ข๐ฅ๐ฒ ๐‘๐จ๐จ๐ฆ
The family room upstairs holds a large sectional and massive 75 inch flat-screen TV for movie night as well as board games and a shuffle-board table for game night. In the corner of the family room, there is a ๐™™๐™š๐™จ๐™  ๐™–๐™ฃ๐™™ ๐™ข๐™ค๐™ฃ๐™ž๐™ฉ๐™ค๐™ง for those who need to “work from home” while staying at your new home away from home.

The backside of the property is where things get truly magical. Giant pine trees sprinkle the property, and the seasonal Strawberry Creek babbles below. The expansive back deck has a dining table, and a sitting area with a fire pit to cozy up in and listen to the wildlife chatter. The ultimate indulgence after a fun-filled day sits in the far corner of the deck: a Sundance Hot Tub. Off the deck, you can walk the grounds of the 1.5 acres that the Lodge sits on. A second outdoor dining table sits creekside for dining under the pines.

Out front of the property, there is ample parking in the opening next to the Lodge and room for two cars in the covered carport. Inside the carport is an EV charger that is free to use.

Kelly's cabin was the perfect getaway. My wife and I have stayed in several airbnbs in Idyllwild, but this one is our favorite so far. It was snowing when we arrived and you get a beautiful view of the trees outside neer a small creek. Highly recommended for a nice relaxing escape!

I am so grateful we found this comfy piece of heaven. My daughter saw it on airbnb and picked it from all the other places she saw in Idyllwild, so grateful she did. For starters it is super easy to check in, the parking is right next to the cabin. We brought some essentials just in case, however no need because Kelly has the Idyllbrook stocked with salt, sugar, spices, olive oil, popcorn, hot chocolate, and all the kitchen utensils you'll need. The floor plan is super cozy, you can cook in the kitchen and enjoy your family/friends while they chill in the family room. Everything was clean, and very well thought out. You have blankets to cozy up by the fireplace, and complimentary wood. The beds are very comfortable, and if you wake up late no worries because the curtains truly block out the light. Also, the gazebo is so lovely to sit in and read, eat your breakfast and listen to the brook. This is quite a gem to stay at in Idyllwild, do not hesitate to book this place!!!

Our stay at Idylbrook was amazing! We had the most amazing time relaxing and decompressing from city life. The cabin was great with lots of fun games and the beautiful gazebo to relax in. Kelly and Erin were amazing hosts who were very communicative and helped answer every question we had. They also had a very helpful online guide! Overall it was a 10/10, canโ€™t wait to visit again!

Our stay at Idyllbrook was nothing short of magical. The home is in an ideal location, close enough to town for easy access to all the fun of Idyllwild, but remote and private enough to feel truly immersed in the woods. The furnishings and decor are lovingly and thoughtfully arranged, such that it feels inevitable anyone would feel at home here. We loved the living room couches, the balconies, the breakfast nook, and the gazebo especially. Kelly and Erin were responsive, kind, and helpful throughout our stay. We cannot wait to come back again, hopefully later this year!

Kelly's cabin was an amazing spot to relax and bring our pups (4 adults - two pups). The backyard/gazebo area was an awesome area the pups had to search for sticks and bounce around. The cabin itself was very cute and cozy. Host was very responsive and everything from check-in to check-out was a breeze. Would stay with them again.

This is a classic quaint pine-paneled cabin nestled in the mature pine woods of the San Jacinto Mountains. Cozy is the operative word for this timeless little retreat. The kitchen was well-equipped and easy to use. The living room was comfortably arranged to enjoy either the fire or the TV. It was cold when we stayed so we couldnโ€™t fully appreciate all the balconies or the little screened house/room below in the woods by the tiny creek, but the neighborhood was peaceful and walkable. There were many thoughtful touches, lots of games, pup and kid-friendly, andโ€”much appreciatedโ€”car passes to local outdoor parks and trails. The host responded to any questions almost immediately. The only hassle was the local requirement to obtain a permit to use the grill, so you have to arrive when the fire department is open (& the people there were very nice)โ€”and I fully appreciate the fire concerns! All in all a good spot to hole up and finish a book or a spot of work, which is what I did.

Our 3 days and 2 nights at the Brookhouse was Chicken Soup for the Soul. This was our first getaway without the kids in many years, and we were looking for peaceful outdoor solitude to rest and re-center, and that's just what we found. The backyard blends with the forest with the gazebo providing a perfect place to just soak in the forest and enjoy the babbling brook that's just a few feet away. Our dog loved the gazebo too. Our host, Erin, was extremely responsive and communicative via Airbnb messaging, text message, and phone. We'll be back to the Brookhouse for sure.

This was our first time to Idyllwild and we are so glad we decided to check it out and get this cute little cabin. It was perfect for my husband and my 1 year oldโ€™s first vacation as a family. We were able to bring our dogs which was important to us since they were our first children. Nice relaxing weekend away from the hustle and bustle of home. Hope to come back and stay here again.

This is the perfect little cabin! The layout is just right for two people plus dog. Lovely, big deck plus a couple other mini-decks for variety. The living room couches and chairs are super comfortable and cozy by the fire. Kitchen is clean and well-stocked (lots of dry spices, sugar, oil, vinegar, etc. Super helpful to not have to bring or buy those things). My absolute favorite part of this property is the gazebo. It served as a perfect writing retreat to sit, listen to the brook, and work while my dog snoozed in the background.

The house and location were beautiful, exactly what we were expecting, and the layout of the grounds was terrific; without a doubt, my favorite part of the property was the gazebo down by the brook in the middle of the property. I will return to this property just to be able to spend afternoons reading in the gazebo. The house was exactly as advertised and the standards and cleanliness of the property were excellent, highly recommend.

The Idyllbrook Cabin is a gem! Very comfortable, felt right at home. The beds and furniture are all good quality and very comfortable. The Kitchen had everything we needed. We enjoyed both balconies and the main floor deck. And the Brook House down by the brook was the topper. I was working remote this trip, and since the wifi reaches the Brook House, I set myself up for a productive day working in nature! Brook sounds, birds chirping, squirrels yaking, fresh air. And our little dog, Frida, loved the whole thing (her first vacation trip). It was just the two of us and Frida, so we did not try the second bed in the loft room, but it looked very comfy and well situated. Superhost Kelly and her daughter, Erin, were terrific with communication. We would love to come stay here again and would highly recommend it. We have stayed at three other AirBnB in Idyllwild and this one is top-notch

My husband and I had a very relaxing weekend. The house was very clean and cozy. The surrounding was beautiful and very peaceful. We loved it so much that we asked to stay another night. The only draw back was having to go up and down the stairs to the bathroom. Very difficult for older people like us with knee problems. But it is all worth it . We will definitely come back and try out some of their other properties!!!

Our stay was great. We loved the brookside gazebo. And the EV charging station was a nice touch. The only reason that I gave a small ding to the location was that there was construction going on very near-by. Of course the host had no control over that. Still, it was there. If climbing stairs is an issue for you, be aware that you have to walk up to the bathroom from the main level and down to the bathroom from the sleeping area upstairs. A little strange, but workable. Everything in the house was very clean. The pillows in the gazebo needed to have the dirt knocked off but I don't see how the host could keep them pristine. Once we cleaned them off the first time, they were good to go for the rest of our stay. Town (and restaurants) is just a short drive away, as is a grocery store. We were there in August and the town rolled up its sidewalks pretty early. I don't know if it's always that way. Still, there was a good selection of restaurants with good food. Great stay! Thank you!
