We loved this place! Itโ€™s directly across the street from Idyllwildโ€™s best restaurant, which was super convenient. Super cozy and private for being off of the main road. Itโ€™s also a quick 5 minute walk to town. Weโ€™ll definitely stay here again!

I was looking for a log cabin feel, and when I came across Kellyโ€™s listing it was the one. The place was as described and I got my log cabin. The place was clean, cozy and the forest view surrounding it was awesome. There is also a cute restaurant right across from the cabin which was a plus. Thanks again for the stay!

Coziest little cabin and amazing hosts. Kelly and Erin were both very helpful in checking in and making sure everything was ok with the cabin and our stay. It snowed the day before and they messaged us to make sure we would be prepared. The cabin was well maintained and clean, shoveled, everything worked, kitchen was well stocked for cooking. Would definitely recommend and will definitely be staying again

We had a wonderful time at Kelly's place the Idyllcottage in Idyllwild. The forest bathing in Idyllwild is second to none. We were prepared that the hot tub would take a while to heat up by reading other reviews so we were able to enjoy it on our Saturday there - in the cold winter air with the lights above us - it was a dream. The cottage was adorable and very comfortable - it was hard to get the place warm but that is Idyllwild in general - we were there on a particularly cold day. The fireplace stopped working on Sat night - Emily was very attentive - they couldn't fix it while we were there but they responded immediately when we reached out and I am sure they will fix it right away. Our only small need is a firmer mattress - we both need firm and this was semi-soft -not terrible but not super firm. We love Idyllwild and especially Ferro - a special dining experience - eat in the backyard - during the day with heaters it is magical

Had a great stay with my wife and our dog! The location was great and within walking distance to shops and restaurants. The cabin is private with strawberry creek just a couple minutes down the way to explore. The cabin has a front gated patio that was perfect for our dog. We really enjoyed the hot tub at night and the peaceful surroundings. We would recommend this cabin for anyone looking to stay in a cool place that is close to town!

I loved this cozy cabin with comfortable beds and a big couch to curl up in front of the fire and watch movies. Lots of great hiking close by. The hot tub was very relaxing and great for stargazing. The kitchen was well stocked with spices . It was just like the pictures. There is a restaurant a cross the street. I didnโ€™t try it but it was very popular. They have Live music some nights. Itโ€™s a close walk into town. It is up hill coming back but not to bad. I would definitely come back. Iโ€™d love to come back in the winter and play in the snow .

Although we had some minor issues getting started in our rental, our co-host was incredibly responsive and helpful, going as far as to offer a place for me to work whilst one of our issues persisted. Overall, incredibly polite hosts and a wonderful stay. 10/10 communication 👍👍👍 would definitely stay here again 😋🫶

Kellyโ€™s place was the perfect first getaway with our new baby. It was spotless and such a cozy vibe. My husband and I loved that we could set up our pack and play in the living room and enjoy tv on the couch. Our dog loved it and there was even a doggy bowl ready for her to enjoy. The cabin was so close to town which was nice especially with the new baby. If we ever come back to Idyllwild weโ€™ll be staying at Kellyโ€™s!

Kellyโ€™s place was wonderful! My husband and I spent a peaceful week reading books in front of the fireplace, watching movies, soaking in the hot tub, and sleeping in. This is the perfect place to getaway for some peace and quiet. Itโ€™s also a great place is you want to bring friend and kiddos as itโ€™s loaded with four beds, books, games, a loft area, and a nook. The cabin is lovely, cozy, with great amenities, and walking distance into town. On the last night, we had an amazing dinner at Aroma Cafรฉ across the street. If you get a chance to stay at Kellyโ€™s Cabin youโ€™ll have an amazing time. Kelly was a great host - very responsive and made sure we were enjoying our stay. Thank you!

Thank you Kelly, Erin, and Idyllcottage for such an amazing first trip to Idyllwild! We especially loved how cozy and homey the cabin was when we first arrived, we loved all the amenities such as the hot tub under the stars, the grill and cast iron pans for cooking amazing meals, and all the board games and TV with soundbar! Best touch is the acoustic guitar, we sang and jammed out on the most comfortable couch in the world! We loved our stay and canโ€™t wait to come back to Idyllcottage! ❤️
