Kelley's home is beautiful, very homey (not like a typical stock AirBnB), and very scenic. We regularly saw deer, squirrels, birds and other animals pass by -- we even saw a Bobcat one day. The hot tub is really nice and nicely set in between the house and the forest. The house is really clean and comfortable, everything worked perfectly. Great stay!

The cabin was amazing. If you are looking for peace and quiet with views, wildlife, this is the place. It is easy to get to, spotless and well appointed. The hot tub was clean and worked perfectly. We appreciated the attention to detail. Plenty of deck space and places to relax outside. The host Kelly was super nice, provided a house manual that was super informative before check in and responded quickly to email. Additionally, we werenโ€™t asked to do the laundry or any other unreasonable cleaning before check out. Long story short, weโ€™re hoping to be back and reserve again. Highly recommend.

Canโ€™t put into words how absolutely beautiful and stunning this place was, pictures donโ€™t do it justice! Every detail was so thought out, views of the entire valley, wrap around porch, new hot tub, automatic lights outside, cooking spices and utensils, easy check in and check out, a very detailed handbook. My girls trip was completely made because we had this place to stay in! Please note this is on a hill and not too walkable to town but an easy 4 minute drive. The town is adorable as well. I only want to stay in this airbnb if when I come back to idyllwild! ๐Ÿ™‚

We really enjoyed our recent stay at the cabin. It was very peaceful with great views out on the deck. We had 6 people, and there was plenty of room for us, and the kids enjoyed their own space downstairs. Recommended!

Stayed at this beautiful serene airbnb for a long weekend. Erin and her team were friendly, responsive and helpful (especially with the unexpected snow storm and when we accidentally set off the fire alarm!) She checked in to make sure all was well. The living room and deck were just absolutely peaceful and amazing - loved the bird seed provided - and just a beautiful view when clear and to watch the snow fall from inside. Everything worked perfectly, kitchen well stocked, tv worked well and could connect our Netflix account seamlessly, beds were comfy and we enjoyed watching the fire when it was snowing. Everything in the house was labeled clearly. Would definitely recommend!

This was a perfect spot to visit idyllwild. Overlooked the city. Close to everything in town. The home was very accommodating with little needed from home. All of the amenities were there. The visit was great. Had an overnight surprise snowstorm. Saw deer every day in the backyard. Very peaceful and Private home. Highly recommended!!

This home was so wonderful! My family enjoyed all the house had to offer. My kids loved the downstairs area and all the touches. Every day we saw deer on the path outside and on the last day we even saw a bobcat!! While the mattresses could use an update and the Jacuzzi had a little too many chemicals for comfort, we would absolutely come back!

Great stay making wonder family memories. Hot tub was slow to heat up due to cold weather but fantastic when it got hot. Lovely hike on Saturday and enjoyed a nice lunch on Sunday at the Brewhouse in Idyllwild. Would definitely return. Enjoyed some snow. Kitchen well equipped with coffee and other essentials like oils, spices, condiments etc. Wonderful hosts.

We really enjoyed our stay at Kelly and Erinโ€™s place. The cabin was exactly as youโ€™d imagine โ€” well-loved, charming, great views, and stocked with all kinds of comfortable touches. The cabin was clean and tidy and gave the impression we were staying in a home โ€” somewhere that a family had built together over the years. We loved the holiday decorations (we stayed over New Years). The hot tub was clean and easy to use, as was the wood burning stove. We had no issues with hot water. The kitchen came stocked with pantry basics (oils, seasonings, condiments) and plenty of cooking utensils. For the adventurous, highly recommend hiking to Tahquitz peak. The trailhead is a short walk from the cabin. Would gladly stay again in any season!

The Mile High Cabin is a perfect place to escape for a weekend getaway. The house offers a stunning panoramic view of the surrounding mountains; & we were even lucky enough to see random wildlife stroll by from time to time. It is well-equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay, but we were most delighted by the collection of musical instruments. It was such a unique and enjoyable experience, which made this retreat unforgettable. The host was also incredibly responsive and accommodating. She was even thoughtful enough to have the driveway salted when we decided to still arrive after a snowstorm. Overall, it was truly a one-of-a-kind experience, and we canโ€™t recommend the Mile High Cabin enough.

This was a wonderful place to destress. Sitting out on the decks or watching the wildlife from inside was magical. We even had a family of deer come visit multiple times! Mile High Hideaway had everything we needed for a cozy Fall visit in Idyllwild: comfy beds, a huge hot tub, fast wi-fi, a tv with tons of channels, a great kitchen for meals in, and most of all, lots of places to relax. We will definitely plan to return.

Kelly's home is fantastic - and better than advertised. The photos don't really do it justice. The views are breathtaking, the home is open and fully takes advantage of the surroundings with the large windows and cabin-style architecture. The rooms are comfortable, and the hot tub overlooking Idyllwild is worth the price of admission. Kelly and Erin are excellent hosts and very responsive. We hope to be back soon!!

This place truly was everything it was billed to be. The home almost felt like a big treehouse with the beautiful deck overlooking Idyllwild (highly recommend having a meal on that deck with your friends and family!) and with these awesome little "Faerie houses" nestled around the property. The whole place was immaculately clean and the vibe was perfect for me and my friends. Also, can I say... probably the cleanest hot tub I've used. So, yeah, you should totally stay here when you come up to beautiful Idyllwild. Thanks again!

We had an amazing stay! There are so many thoughtful details around the house. The cabin is absolutely beautiful. I actually gasped when we first walked in. The evening sun was beaming through the wall of windows. What a welcome that was! Also, it was so lovely to sit in the hot tub in the evening listening to all the crickets. There was a coffee bar that we took advantage of each morning as we soaked up the stunning view and watched the birds, squirrels and the deer. The cabin feels very secluded, and yet is just a short drive to town. Many thanks for a wonderful, relaxing get away! Everything was perfect!

Mile High is exactly as the description and pictures describe. It's all here and more. I can't say enough good things about the overall experience of staying here and exploring the surrounding areas. From a family perspective there is no shortage of things to do: cornhole, ping pong, hot tub, animal watching, TV's, amazing views, BBQ, trips to town, hiking, musical instruments (if your inclined or up n coming), on and on. The cabin feels like a cabin should feel. There are numerous upgrades throughout while maintaining a few idiosyncrasies that make the place unique. Overall it's extremely comfortable. Minimal communication was needed with the owners, but was speedy and helpful. The cabin could easily be called the treehouse. Three of the four sides are perched amongst the trees. Amazing sunsets and views all the time.

This is really a great house. The natural surroundings are awesome yet itโ€™s still really close to town and easy to access. We stayed for a week and were quite comfortable. The spa is lovely and situated in a great spot on the deck. The views from the deck and critters that visited were such a treat. The games, instruments, books and smart TVโ€™s are also very nice to have. My three teens were happy at Mile High cabin and so were my husband and I!

This cabin is the perfect spot for a mountain getaway. My partner and I came here for a staycation for his 30th birthday and we couldnโ€™t have been more thrilled with our time here. It was such a pleasure getting to enjoy the vista while also being tucked away in the trees, and watching all the birds, squirrels, and chipmunks scamper around on the deck. In terms of entertainment, this Airbnb is one of the best stocked weโ€™ve ever been to. PlayStation, TVs (including one outside by the hot tub), Bluetooth speakers, and access to some top streaming platforms was such a nice touch. We couldโ€™ve been totally content never even leaving the house when we came here, and in fact wished we hadnโ€™t! We truly fell in love with this place and canโ€™t wait to come back. Thanks for everything, Kelly and Erin!

This was the perfect getaway for our family to relax for the weekend. There was plenty of space to enjoy each otherโ€™s company, but also have quiet time to ourselves. The best part was the wall of windows that gave us the view of the outdoors. Between the chipmunks, squirrels, birds, and deer, there was always entertainment. We hope to visit again in the future!

When doing airbnb, there is always that anxious moment when you pull up to the property, not knowing whether the place is as good or better than you imagined it or is it a let down. We are happy to report that Kelly's place was one of those places where your smile grows as you pull up and enter the house. It is very tastefully decorated with attention to detail, and adorned with a few guitars on the wall which you are allowed to play. The house was super clean and modern, and everything was in excellent working order. The jacuzzi was great, and the birds and other critters frequenting the bird feeder was a constant source of entertainment. The kitchen is well stocked and we ended up eating in during our entire stay.

This place is DREAMY (no exaggeration). Waking up to the sunrise over the mountains, hot tubbing in the middle of a the forest, everything about this cabin was A1.

The place delivered as promised - it's secluded, quiet, clean and picturesque. The feeling of being outdoors - while staying comfy/cozy inside - was the definitely the highlight of our stay. The deer came cruising through around 10:30a every morning. In fact, almost every moment of daylight, we enjoyed watching wildlife just steps away from us - it was amazing! It's worth taking advantage of the bird seed that was provided. The game room provided a safe and fun go-to area for our kiddos, giving my husband and I much the needed mental break time upstairs to take in the spectacular view. The place is very special and we'll definitely be back.
