Good Time

Let me sum it all up by saying we were pleased with the whole package except for the bed upstairs. Correct this problem and you have a real winner.

Loved it!

Small cabin with a huge yard! The cabin managed to stay pretty cool during our summer weekend and the dogs absolutely loved the giant, fenced yard. We're definitely keeping this cabin on our short list of places to visit again :)

Great cabin to relax and enjoy some fresh air!

Very cute cabin in a lovely area. Has a wonderful large porch with fantastic views. Neighbors are close enough that you don't feel totally isolated, but far enough away that you have plenty of peace and privacy. The interior was clean. The kitchen had every pot and utensil you could possibly need to make any meal. Bathroom was stocked with fresh towels and TP. The yard is huge and fenced, our dogs had a blast running around, chasing squirrels and exploring - one of our dogs is very upset that we brought her back home! The check in process was simple. Maria was very helpful, patient with questions and friendly. The instructions to the cabin provided to us were very clear and made finding the cabin easy. Overall the whole trip was a great experience.

A Beautiful Retreat

We stayed for one weekend. The cabin was cosy, the view from the living room fantastic. An unseasonable snow blew in, and we enjoyed watching it fall, as we sat by the fire. Martha and her crew came and dug us out, on Sunday, so we had no worries about driving away. The cabin is well equipped and beautifully situated.

A peaceful, comfortable cabin with beautiful mountain views...

I stayed at this cabin with one other friend. It was my first experience. I liked it here. It was peaceful getaway I needed. This cabin is comfortable and had all the necessary amenities. It is very close to town by car. And if you're up for a hike and an exercise, then you can hike/walk down to the town center. There were great restaurants in town. Two I tried and loved were La Casita Mexican Restaurant and Cafe aroma. There are also local shops worth stopping in like angels in the Cottage, Himalayan Treasures and the Soap Shop. Also, checkout the local coffee shop. The only thing is that it's an older cabin. So don't expect contemporary or updated interior. I actually took my own bedding, even though it was available. It does have everything you'll need. I would return to this haven of a town and this cabin.

We felt relaxed and had the comforts of home.

We loved the yard (especially our four-legged kiddo), fully fenced and beautiful view. Inside, our only complaint was wishing for a dishwasher! Everything worked, and there were ample cooking supplies for a fun-filled weekend. We liked being close to town, but having a sense of privacy.

We loved the huge fenced yard!

We were completely happy with the Mountain View cabin, and so were our dogs. The yard was huge (and secure), and the cabin was well-appointed and homey. Everything worked just fine. We had a really nice time.

Our New Years stay at Mountain View

The house is lovely and the yard amazing. The heatlamps in the bathroom were an added plus, the kitchen a good size. But, you had to sit on a couch pillow or you would sink way down. The bed upstains was very nice but the twin bed in front of the door downstairs was a nightmare. We will stay in Idyllwild again, martha was wonderful, but will select a different cabin.

relaxing weekend in mountains

We had a super time. the cabin was great and the friendliness and service by Martha was excellent. We will definately be back.

Cozy Cabin

The staff at Idyllwild Vacation Cabins was so friendly and attentive to our needs. While the cabin was older and could have used some updating, it was clean, comfortable, quiet and very affordable.

Great Place to Relax and for Doggies

We had a great time at Mountain View. The fenced in propery was very nice and I was happy our dogs had a large, enclosed, safe area to run around in. I also liked that we could park our car on the property.The house was cozy and clean and offered great views. My only critique is that I wished it was decorated more modernly, and little more tastefully. The directions/instructions written on the walls took away from the homey environment and made it more institutional.


This is a wonderful cabin! It was perfect for 5 people. The furnishings are a bit old, but very cozy. The view is wonderful and the fire place added to the relaxing weekend. The street was quiet and we felt as if we were the only ones on the mountain!

A perfect pet friendly location

We just returned from a weekend stay at the Mt. View cabin. We were two couples and a golden retriever. Searching the internet, I found the property and phoned the manager, Martha, for more info. I told her of our requirements and she assurred me that the Mt. View cabin would be perfect. It was! The cabin, although a bit dated, was very comfortable and had everything we could need. The fenced yard of over a half acre was fantastic for the dog. Secluded, close to great hiking and walking distance to town, the location was great. Martha's service was 1st rate and we look forward being back in the summer.

Christmas in Heaven!

We just got back from a 3 night stay at the Mountain View cabin in Idyllwild, and we have nothing but good things to report. We brought our dog, a black lab, who was in heaven running around the 1 acre lot, that was totally fenced it. It had just snowed the day before, so we were able to enjoy a white Christmas. The cabin itself was perfectly suited for us. It wasn't fancy per se - but had all the amenties we needed. A cozy fireplace, big open floorplan, fenced in back yard, big bedroom. Martha at Fern Valley Vacation Cabins was extremely friendly and accommodating. She moved one of the twin beds into the master bedroom which was perfect, so our 4 yr old son could sleep near us. When we arrived, the house was very clean, and already warm and cozy w/ the heat on. We loved the cabin, and definately plan to book a trip back there next year. 5 stars for Mountian View and Fern Valley Vacation Cabins!
