This home features 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom, only 1.2 mi from the center of town. You can idle away with Netflix, cable, DVDs, a large deck space w/ spa, or board games by the fire. Or, get out in the wild at Idyllwild Nature Center. This home is 8 mi from Lake Hemet and 11 mi from Lake Fulmor.

This home is ideally set up for 4 adults. However, it does feature a sofa and a twin cot to accommodate 2 additional people when necessary.

You are sure to enjoy your stay at this charming cabin!

The space

This home was built in 1977 and my husband and I are only the second owners. It has always been a vacation home, but now it's open to you! It is well maintained, and you may notice that, while some items seem like a blast from the past, some recent additions have been included for your comfort (e.g. the new washer/dryer). We love this home and choose to vacation here ourselves whenever we can! We hope you love it too!

Guest access

You have access to 2 bedrooms, a bathroom, washer/dryer, kitchen, dining area, living room, 500+ sq. ft. deck and the yard!

Interaction with guests

I am 2 hours away in San Diego, but am available by phone or (preferably) text and can arrange for adequate response. Riverside Co. requires a person within 1 hour to be available in the event of emergencies or neighbor complaints reported to the County. I have hired a person to respond to such issues, who charges a minimum of $80 to go to the property. Such charges, if any, will be billed through the security deposit.

Other things to note

**note: breakfast is not provided, but coffee/tea are.

I am often asked about our pet policy. I believe that humans have caused much more harm to our own environments than animals have. Pets must follow the same rules as anyone else: clean up messes, don't damage the house, etc. You know your pet better than I do. Please don't ruin this policy for everyone else. Also, don't "adopt" any of the outside critters who may come by in the forest (e.g. bats, raccoons, ants, moths, etc.)!

Staying at Amanda's place was a perfect peaceful getaway. Really fun 'blast from the past' elements right down to the toaster cover and kitchen curtains without the dinginess or sacrifices of modern comforts. The porch is a beautiful respite to lounge and read while watching the squirrels and many birds. A very well taken care of property that I preferred being in to going into town (which can be a bit anti-tourist). Great hiking in the area. Always grateful for homes that allow dogs, but don't plan on letting your four legged friend roam free in the backyard as there are no gates on the sides of the house. Still, a wonderful respite that I greatly enjoyed.

We loved our stay at Amanda's place. It was very comfortable and clean. Very well stocked for any guest. Walkable distance to Idyllwild City, or a two minute drive. Loved the deck, very peaceful outside. Would definitely stay there again.

We had a great time at the cabin! It was very organized, peaceful and close to town and Lake Hemet for fishing. Our dogs enjoyed the fenced yard however it is not enclosed so we had to barricade them in. Amanda is a great host and communicates with her guests in a timely manner. We will definitely stay at this cabin again!!

This cabin is like stepping back in time. The decor had me feeling I was in an episode of Mad Men in the woods! Great location, wonderful sense of peace and quiet even through you are in a neighborhood filled with cabins. The house has everything you need for a comfortable stay and Amanda was very accommodating and helpful in getting me settled. Perfect distance to town, hikes and Hemet Lake... Idyllwild is a little piece of heaven.

A cozy little home, close to the hiking trails and the quaint center of Idyllwild. Clear check in and checkout instructions are provided. We had a relaxing time at "Be Idle and Be Wild"
