When I thought of being in a peaceful, beautiful, comforting environment, Idyllwild came to mind, and specifically Fireside. My dog and I enjoyed the easy 2 hour drive from Vista. We were in...

There were five of us who shared the Eagles Nest. I wouldn't stay in this unit again. It is located on the main highway so is a bit noisy. We live on a busy street and I was looking forward to a quiet mountain getaway. It's a nice mile or so walk to town. The beds were comfortable and the... More

Separate from the main building, its a standalone cabin build in the 30's out of rail road ties. Full kitchen and wonderful deck out back with BBQ and patio table to eat and take in the cedars...Didn't eat out once.. thought there are some fun restaurants... check out IDYology for food or just a drink.

Stayed at the Squirrel's Nest Cabin in July. Best low cost accommodations in the area. The room was charming and the bed super comfy. Georgia at the front desk was super helpful with local restaurant recommendations, and when I had a tech problem with my cell phone, she let me use hers, and really saved the day for me. Will...

We stayed in the Bluebird Cabin. Pros: It's a cute, woodsy, and dog-friendly cottage. It has a very nice little kitchen and is only a short drive from town and hiking. There are multiple heaters to keep you warm at night and a window unit air conditioner for those unexpectedly hot afternoons. The wifi worked great, and the staff was... More
