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.

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.

Perfect peaceful cabin getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this quaint and quiet cabin. It had everything we could hope for: light, sunny, and well supplied kitchen, comfortable living spaces and fun loft, beautiful deck for enjoying meals al fresco, substantial shaded yard for the canines, and close to trails! We hope to return!

Perfect Idyllwild cabin!

  • 5 of 5

My family (and our dog Charlie) loved our time at the cabin! Extremely clean and comfortable, great ambience in furnishings and setting as well. Great location- close enough to town, yet far enough away that it was quiet and peaceful. Owner was very responsive and helpful- easy to work with. The only thing we might have liked is if the directions for the TV/Wi-Fi were a little easier to follow and worked more easily. We had read previous reviews, so we knew the owner would have responded promptly had we called him, but we were so busy with other things, we didn't request his assistance with this. And in the end, we actually enjoyed not having the "electronics"- helped us enjoy the quiet and peaceful stay. This is the kind of place where you feel you totally lucked out to find it! We would definitely stay here again- very happily.

Great mini vacation getaway

  • 5 of 5

Lovely place. Perfect location. Everything we needed was there. Great fenced-in yard for dogs, although wish there were less foxtails. Really close to hiking and town. Great deck. Owners were responsive. Had no problems with anything. (just had to get batteries for one of the remotes.) Would definitely come back and stay here again. Idyllwild is beautiful. Thank you Mark for allowing us to share your cottage.

Lovely, quiet weekend getaway.

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and quiet. It's close to town and we enjoyed daily walks in for supplies or to enjoy local restaurants. The fully stocked kitchen made it easy to stay at home and cook. The house was pet friendly and our dogs had a wonderful time exploring nearby trails with us. I feel relaxed and rested. I would definitely recommend this cabin and will be pleased to come again.

wonderful small cabin, with a nice deck

  • 5 of 5

I visited Idyllwild for a couple of days with my mother - we'd had a cabin in Idyllwild when I was growing up and had enjoyed the area as a weekend getaway, and this was a chance to return, hike, relax, chat, and hang out. This cabin is near the top of a ridge, gets a lot of light, and has many screened windows/doors all around the house. It was a bit warm inside when we arrived, but by opening windows and turning on the ceiling fan it became very pleasant. The temperature outside on the deck was also perfect. There are four comfortable chairs around the table on the deck, and a nice-sized table at the inside dining area. This is a charming cabin and we had a great time.
