IDYLL TYME! RELAX AND REJUVENATE IN WONDERFUL FERN VALLEY

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cabin in Idyllwild - Idyll Tyme!

2 Bedroom And Loft, Wrap-around Fenced-in Deck, Completely Remodeled

'Idyll Tyme!' is a place to do most anything, or nothing at all! The cabin underwent an extensive remodel in 2013, with Direct TV, wireless internet, flat-screen TV, and many other amenities. You can enjoy squirrels, raccoons, birds, and a great view from the wrap-around deck any time of day, although it is especially nice in the evenings. From the loft and bedrooms, one can see Lily Rock in all its splendor. The gated deck can be completely fenced in and secure, so it is safe for young children and pets.

Suitability:
  • non smoking only
  • wheelchair inaccessible
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters
  • children welcome
  • pets considered

Doug is a retired US Forest Service employee and Bonnie is a musician by profession, so the community's emphasis on the arts and the forest was a good match for both of us (we are now retired-sort of!). We lived in this house for 9 years while Doug was US Forest Service District Ranger and still know many local residents here, so we have extensive knowledge of the area and its special charms. We have used vacation rentals in other parts of the world and decided that our place was a wonderful area to share with others, just as others have shared with us, whether here in the US or abroad. We are happy to answer any questions you may have, and to welcome you to this little corner of paradise. Come and enjoy!

Bonnie and Doug purchased this cabin in 1981

While we lived here, we realized the special benefits of this great environment and the wonderful people who live here, and everyone's efforts to keep it that way. We look forward to sharing our piece of paradise with you.

We love the fact that the cabin is cozy and at the same time gives the feeling of openness. It is very airy and bright. The day we walked in, the first comment we made was, 'Oooo, we like!!' Through the years, we have had wonderful conversations on the wrap-around deck, especially in the summer evenings, but year around as well.

We decorate for seasons, holidays and special occasions!

In completing the remodel of our place, we've made every effort to make the cabin comfortable and modern, yet compatible with the feeling that is essentially Idyllwild. We love to take walks around the area and just enjoy the peace, but equally enjoy the local concerts and events, as well as the DIRECT TV, Wi-Fi, and other amenities of the cabin. There are level streets in the neighborhood which make a good walking or jogging route, and the house is completely accessible in winter.

Idyllwild Arts provides great concerts and is only a short drive away (please contact them for concert schedules). You can find wonderful restaurants, unique shops, and an abundance of nature related activities here. We enjoy providing seasonally appropriate decorations for the cabin, making your holidays here feel like home.

Since we live only about 30 minutes away, we make ourselves available as needed. We enjoy meeting and greeting our guests whenever possible. After all, strangers are only friends we haven't yet met!

Amazing Place & Wonderful Stay!

Amazing Place & Wonderful Stay!
  • 5 out of 5
Three of my friends and I traveled from San Diego for a girl's getaway weekend. We found the cabin very clean and well maintained. You can see pride of ownership in both the interior improvements as well as the exterior grounds. The location is private (set back from the street), peaceful, and serene. Great for bird watching! The beds and linens where extremely plush and comfortable. We loved the subtle touches that enhanced the cabin: comfy linens, wood burning stove, books, free Wi-Fi, large flat screen TV, coffee, tea, and cocoa service. Location-wise there is something for everyone; 2 of my friends chose to hike both days (trails and park nearby), and my other friend who had an injured foot and I trolled the village to eat and peruse through the shops and galleries. Excellent location - far enough out for privacy yet close to everything. Every exchange I had with the owners was so pleasant; they were professional, courtesy, and extremely responsive. They even made a special trip to come out and light a pilot light for us that serviced the main wall heaters, although we discovered these were not really needed as the wood burning stove and individual space heaters in each room heated the cabin sufficiently. I can go on and on with nice comments, but I will close with this: I plan on coming back to this lovely cabin for future trips and would recommend it to anyone as a superb choice in Idyllwild. Bonnie and Doug, we loved our time in your beautiful cabin...thank you thank you, we are extremely grateful ! Patty & friends.

A PERFECT GETAWAY

  • 5 out of 5
My friends and I were looking for a weekend vacation to just help us relax and get our heads off school and work. It was a great experience, beautiful view and the cabin had a warm feeling that made you feel right at home. Doug and Bonnie answered all of our questions and made sure we were satisfied with our stay. I will definitely come back.

We Idyll-ized Idyll Tyme!

  • 5 out of 5
Our family spent two glorious weeks in this beautiful and comfortable home. Doug and Bonnie even put up a Christmas tree for the children! This home has been newly renovated, is immaculate and everything is good working order. I can't say I have ever stayed in a vacation home where ALL the furniture and beds were so comfortable. In addition, the kitchen is well equipped to whip up breakfast or a gourmet meal.

The Phumphreys’ have great internet and cable television service. This was an iPad Christmas and everyone was able to surf the internet simultaneously and to their heart's content. They even left us everything necessary to enjoy the wood stove on chilly nights. We studied the maps Doug left for us and a comprehensive guide to Idyllwild and planned our days visiting historic sites and natural history areas, gift shops and the pottery painting place in town. We loved interacting with the wild life surrounding this home and after one cheeky squirrel insisted we feed him, we got peanuts at Fairway Market. There are many wonderful and unique restaurants and Doug and Bonnie were able to direct us to them. All in all, I’d say Idyll Tyme surpassed all our expectations in every way.

Many; all are great!
Car: necessary

The cabin is in beautiful Fern Valley, 1 mile from Humber Park, location of many major trailheads, and about 2 miles from several other trails and the unique shops and restaurants in the center of town. Peaceful, private, and serene, it is a wonderful place for a romantic stay for two, a friends' getaway, small group retreat, business planning sessions, fun with the family, you name it! We are on a paved road which is plowed when it snows. If you don't know where something is, please ask. Desert communities, San Diego, Orange County, and Los Angeles are all within easy reach. The Idyllwild Arts facility is close by. There is also wine tasting in Temecula, about 1 hour away.
