Idyllcreek Vacation Cabin was an adorable A-frame situated in a woodsy residential area walking distance from the Village Center. Its position at the end of the paved road gave it some extra privacy. The fact that it was right next to a burbling (if seasonal) creek added that extra sense of peaceful relaxation derived from hearing natural water sounds. The home was clean and well-appointed. Everything we could need for meal prep was present. The hot tub was clean and functioned well for 2 persons. The master bedroom can be bright in the morning, but I brought a sleep mask and had no trouble at all. I'd recommend this stay to anyone seeking a peaceful Idyllwild adventure!

This cabin is an amazing place for a little getaway. It is so quiet and peaceful. We had everything we needed from cooking supplies to board games. The jacuzzi was the perfect place to relax and we loved the view from all of the windows in the cabin.

Kelly and Erin were great with communication. They let us know about caltrans chain requirements the day before our trip. They gave us great instructions on how to find the cabin. They checked on us during our stay, just to make sure we didn’t need anything. overall it was a great experience. The cabin was everything we thought it would be. It was a great trip.

Cute cozy cabin! We loved how easy it is to walk to town. We didn’t realize how close the neighboring houses would be, in case you’re looking for more privacy, the deck and hot tub is pretty exposed to all of the neighbors but you’re surrounded by giant trees. No one was around when we were there. The fireplace was perfect and the bed was the nice hotel kind, perfect to lay in and listen to the rain and the creek outside. Having a park pass available for guests was great too.

All in all this was a great airbnb experience for a valentines getaway. Kelly and Erin Are great hosts. The accommodations were exactly as described and the location of the property provided adequate privacy. We never heard a peep from any neighbors. We loved the town. We were able to walk to restaurants at night and could have walked to trailheads if we were feeling more industrious. Great place for a romantic getaway or if you are looking for peace and quiet. Cafe Aroma and Ferro are solid choices, but we preferred the food and vibe of Cafe Aroma if we are ranking the two. The hot tub and fireplace were great perks for the cold nights. Beds are comfortable and the place is well stocked with the basics and more for whatever cooking needs you have. Cozy, quiet, rustic, secluded but not too secluded, clean; we had a fantastic experience and would recommend this location to friends and family. Thank you Kelly and Erin for the great stay.

Love love love this place! It was perfect for what we needed. We wanted a cabin staycation with a view & we found it here. The environment was beautiful & we were lucky enough to experience snow falling. It was gorgeous. The cabin is cozy & had everything we needed. We stayed in most of the time due to the rain & snow. Cooking was easy & we felt right at home. There were so many details that we really enjoyed, like glasses stored in the freezer to enjoy with our cold beers & the convenient wood access available for an additional cost. Everything was clean & easy to find. The host & co-host were amazing. Starting with house manual, it was very detail & helpful. It came with several recommendations however I was able to message Erin about additional recommendations. Kelly & Erin checked in on us which was great and made us feel so welcomed & prepared for our trip. The cabin is so close to town it made going for pizza and last minute grocery run a breeze. I highly recommend.

Highly recommend. This A frame cabin was exactly what I was looking for. Close to the downtown area, plenty of kitchen tools for cooking, and the wood burning stove was the cherry on top for the cold rainy nights. Thank you to Kelly and Erin for being so helpful and responsive.

We loved our brief stay at the A Frame. It was beautiful just as it is in the photos. It was all sparkling clean, including the hot tub which was a great treat after hiking. Love Idyllwild and how many great restaurants and little spots there are. Everyone is so friendly, and we’re already planning our next trip. Thanks again for a a great rental!

This is such a beautiful spot. The place was very clean and it had everything we needed. Kelly and Erin responded to my questions and were very flexible. Hot water, and heater were perfect since it got a bit cold at night. Kitchen is well-equipped. We really enjoy our stay. The only thing I have to mention is that the second night was a bit rough. There was a lot of noise from the trees, but its not like someone can control it. Just be aware it can be noisy if its windy since we could hear the trees hitting the roof at night. Other than that, the view in the morning was amazing. We would definately book again.

A lovely and quiet place surrounded by nature. The kitchen has everything needed for cooking and beyond including a French press. All the games, books and puzzles anyone could want. A beautiful spot. Thank Helpful to know: one room has a door that closes. The other room is a loft with no door to separate it. Walking to town is close and possible, however there are no designated sidewalks so some extra care is needed when walking.

I was so pleased to see the beautiful cabin perfectly matching the photos! Kelly and Erin were so clear, and helpful from the time we book to the time we checked out! The hot tub, and cozy lighting were just what we needed for a relaxing recharge! My only gripe, is the shower head, it took me an excessive amount of time to wash my hair. The slightest inconvenience, I know- but considering the price I think it’s worth mentioning . Overall a wonderful stay!

We had a wonderful weekend at Kelly's place. It truly is a gem and exactly what we needed to recover from the back to school/ end of summer vacation stress. It felt amazing to wake up surrounded by trees, to the sounds of birds and the little creek nearby. It is close enough to town that you can walk there easily yet it felt very private and secluded. A true retreat! We loved relaxing in the hot tub and play some games in the living room. We will for sure be back again!

Awesome A-frame cabin. Clean, comfortable and even though there are other cabins around, it feels secluded and peaceful. Creek still running in August. You can hear it very well at night and from either deck. Host was very professional, communicative and even had the cabin available for early check in without being requested. Definitely recommend and I stay again in the future.
