Italian Restaurant

“Beautiful setting with live music a number of nights a week. Love the bar seating area, too. Great wine list with food that leans towards traditional surf and turf. Delicious salads. A bit more expensive. Pups allowed.”

Other Great Outdoors
“If you're looking for a short hike in nature, want to take in the local animals, the museum itself is quite interesting. They even have a local chalkboard of animals seen in the local area and time/date they were seen. It's pretty fun.”

Park
“We offer two Adventure Passes with the cabin to save you money from having to buy a Day Pass. This is good for Humber Park located at the end of Fern Valley Road close to the cabin. There is hiking for everyone from the beginner to the extreme. Some trails are pet friendly and please be prepared by bringing enough water. There are books in the cabin as to the trails. Be sure to place the pass on your dashboard and please don't forget to put it back where you found it. If lost, you can return it or we will have to charge you $35 to purchase a new pass. These trails also connect to the Pacific Crest Trail and also the Trail to/from the Top of the Tram.”

Neighbourhood
“An hour long drive from Palm Springs up the historic Palms to Pines highway, you will experience the most quaint mountain town known for its jazz, art, and chill ambiance. The locals love living there and it shows in the friendly atmosphere. It's also a foodie town and never unusual to have a local jazz band playing a dinner set.”
