About the property

1 bedroom with Loft. 2 baths. Mountain Views - Steps from hiking/Humber Park

Cozy 2-bed/2- bath mountain cabin under the pines that is steps away from Tahquitz Peak, Southridge Trail, Humber Park and Ernie Maxwell hiking trails. You won't believe what's right outside the front door! Amazing location for the perfect getaway yet close to town. This home has lots of windows and unlike most cabins that are typically dark inside, this cabin has plenty of sunlight beaming through with gorgeous views of the mountains and surrounded by pine trees. Ideal for a couple, yet set up to sleep 4-5 people comfortably. We love pets! Our fully fenced in yard offers your dog plenty of room to roam. (Sorry but we do not allow cats due to allergies.)

This Property features a spacious one bedroom with a comfortable loft that serves as 2nd bedroom/office, separate dining room with views, very large outdoor deck, 2 bathrooms, washer & dryer. Free Wi-Fi, Direct TV and Netflix. Fully fenced-in yard for dogs and parking spaces.

About Mark Skiles

We currently live in Palm Springs Ca. I was introduced to Idyllwild for my birthday in 2013 and fell in love with this mountain town. A year later we were lucky enough to purchase this summer home near Tahquitz Peak and get up there every chance we get. Being so close to all the hiking trails was a total surprise! We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Mark Skiles purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Mark Skiles chose Inland Empire

As I said, we wanted a place to escape the hot summers of Palm Springs . This home was perfect in every way. Location is close to town, hiking trails right out of the front door and of course the views of the peaks. It has amazing energy & lots of sunlight. The minute I walked in the door I knew it was going to be our home.

What makes this cabin unique

The high ceilings, views of the pine trees, the warmth of sun through all of the windows made this place unique for us. It's small and cozy and perfect for that place to get away from it all. The wood burning stove in the winter is an added plus for those cold nights. Also, we have a large German Shepherd named Cal who loves the back yard.

A wonderfully located and outfitted cabin.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. The cabin is located a few yards away from the crest of a hill that presents a panoramic view of the local mountains. The living room is comfortably decorated, the kitchen well equipped and the bedroom is cozy. The back deck is large, furnished and private.

The cabin was very clean and fully equipped. One bathroom has a tub and the other a shower.

In summary, this property has everything you could need or want.

Second time

  • 5 of 5

It was even more awesome than the first because we stayed for a week. The dogs love it here, and it's very private with close access to everything, you'll want to drive though because returning from town is all uphill. In any case I definitely recommend this place.

We relaxed & enjoyed our stay. The cabin was well stocked with everything you would need.

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was very clean & furnished with comfortable furniture including the queen size bed in the bedroom. It was very quiet & peaceful. We enjoyed the humming birds coming to the outside deck for sips of water. It was easy to cook in the kitchen with the large choice of pans & spices. We ate many of our meals at the nice table on the lovely deck. There were a couple of minor issues such not being able to get into the cabin the first night due to the lock box not opening. The owner quickly sent over his employee to unlock it & refunded our first night's stay. We also found the TV difficult to use & the dialogue on the TV shows was soft while the background music was loud drowning out the dialogue. There are also a full flight of stairs from where you park down to the cabin. This made it a little tricky to carry 6 days worth of essentials into & out of the cabin. The owner was very available by phone & very nice & accommodating. I would definitely recommend this cabin.

Excellent location and cabin

  • 5 of 5

My wife, daughter, dog and I stayed for two nights. We were very happy with our experience. The cabin was great--quiet location in walking distance to one of the best trails in Idyllwild--and the setup for our Labrador was perfect: fenced yard, dog door, even dog dishes. We'd definitely stay here again. Our 6-year-old daughter wants to stay 4 nights the next time.
