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.

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.

This property was not just a place to stay, but a beautiful home filled with comfort and charm. The cleanliness and organization were impeccable, and I appreciated how well-equipped the space was with everything I needed for a comfortable stay. Kelly and Erinโ€™s responsiveness and helpfulness throughout the booking process and during our stay were exceptional. It was evident that they truly care about the guests' experience, and that made all the difference. We are already planning to come back during the summer!

This was a last minute change prior to check in due to plumbing issues at another rental owned by them. But Erin made the switch seamless and convenient. It all worked out with another great location and upgrade, that's walkable to the town but private with the soothing sound of the creek. The place stays nice and warm, comfy beds, relaxing to enjoy the creek just steps from the patio. Fully stocked kitchen with essentials and more. The kids enjoyed the cabin, creek, entertainment, and talking to Alexa. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Beautiful cabin, walkable to restaurants and shops in the village. Very cozy, woodsy feel with modern amenities. Equally easy to work from and relax. Kelly's home worked out great for our purposes and we thoroughly enjoyed our time in Idyllwild!

Loved Staying at Kellyโ€™s place. It was wonderful! The cabin itself was cozy and beautiful with many amenities. The fully stocked kitchen and coffee bar were amazing to have. Loved the game area and boardgames available. We were lucky enough to have a bit of snow during our visit. It made the outside even more picturesque. One of our favorite moments was enjoying the hot tub as we took in the scenery. There are a few restaurants walking distance which was great! Though the walk into town was not bad either. Kelly was responsive with clear instructions. Would love to stay here again!

This lodge nestled in the mountains exceeded all expectations! The picturesque surroundings offered a serene escape, and the cozy cabin itself was a perfect blend of rustic charm and modern comfort. Impeccably clean, well-equipped, and with breathtaking views, it made our weekend getaway truly unforgettable. The host's attention to detail and thoughtful touches added a touch of magic to the experience. Highly recommend for anyone seeking a peaceful retreat in nature!

We had the most relaxing and enjoyable New Yearโ€™s weekend at Kellyโ€™s home. It was completely clean, incredibly comfortable, and private, all while remaining convenient to the town center. Check in and out were a breeze and weโ€™re already hoping to make it back soon. It really is an unbeatable home in the mountains.

We fell in love with the Executive Lodge. It was everything we could ask for in a mountain cabin! This property was within walking distance of town, yet offered a huge creek frontage and even access to the creek trail! The stone fireplace, the tree-house like deck, the hot tub were all fantastic! Every detail was addressed, down to a coffee bar with fresh beans and a grinder. Loved it all!

The IdyllLodge is an outstanding property that is very well managed! All the amenities in the description are spot-on which made our weekend 2-night stay so relaxing and enjoyable. This was our first trip up to Idyllwild so we walked into to town shortly after arriving and browsed through some of the shops. The walk from the property to town is just about the perfect distance to stretch out your legs after a couple hours in the car. The only other time we left the house was to take a hike on one of the nearby trails. It was so nice to be able to unplug and not have to keep running into town for small (but sometimes essential) items...the property is stocked to the hilt and has everything you need to enjoy, spoil your family!

Don't hesitate to book this stunning property in the heart of Idyllwild. The "lodge" did not disappoint in any way! Kelly and her daughter responded promptly to every question/need we had, everything was labeled and well thought-out. The property is right on Strawberry Creek, you will be instantly entranced by the soothing sounds of water flowing through a remarkable river rock-filled creek bed. You may not want to leave the property once you arrive, so bring your provisions and prepare for a magical stay. Would book again in a heartbeat.

What an amazing place. Weโ€™ve stayed in countless places over the years and seldom is it when the place is actually better than the photos and descriptions. Quality in all things there. Everyone always says in reviews that they will return to a place they really liked but we actually will be back for sure. Thatโ€™s how much we loved IdyllLodge. Thank you, Kelly.

Amazing home! My family rented this cabin for a summer trip and were extremely impressed by the cleanliness, amenities and private seclusion of the location. We visited during an uncharacteristic heatwave, and the upstairs was getting into the 80s during the evening even with windows open (The downstairs stairs common areas and bedroom was completely fine and cool). We contacted Kelly and her team about it and that same day they brought a portable AC unit and installed it in the upstairs master window. This cooled the entire upstairs very well and we had no more heat issues upstairs. This was amazing customer service!
