About the property

If you like the Ahwahnee hotel in Yosemite, you'll love our little Ahwahnee-be cabin. Decorated with mission oak furniture and Indian themed fabrics and Pendletons, this 1953 vintage cabin is just an 8 minute walk into Idyllwild, and even closer to many excellent bars and restaurants. Walk to county and state parks, hiking trails and bouldering. A beautiful real river rock fireplace is at the heart of this unique cabin. Large 1/2 acre lot with badminton court. Downstairs is a game room/theater with large screen TV and surround sound, DVD, Playstation and X-Box game consoles.

About John and Lara

John grew up going to Idyllwild as a child. His parents enrolled him and his siblings at ISOMATA (Idyllwild School of Music and the Arts—now Idyllwild Arts Academy), where they learned photography, ceramics, and dance. John brought Lara to Idyllwild for the first time last year, and on her third visit, she owned this cabin. Lara's dad, a retired horticulturist, also finds solitude among the trees. They spend their free time (when not working on the cabin ;-), hiking and climbing the beautiful local mountains.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I brought my mom and a dear family friend here for the weekend and we couldn't be more happy with our stay. This sweet cabin features just the right amount of vintage flair, including a gorgeous stone fireplace and original woodwork, yet lacks nothing in the way of modern convenience, such as wifi and Netflix. A spacious deck is lovely for coffee in the morning, with beautiful Adirondack chairs and a breathtaking view of the mountains. The beds were all thoughtfully appointed with hypoallergenic bedding and were very comfortable, and the cabin is just a short walk from town. Lara and John, the owners, were delightful, and definitely went the extra mile to ensure we were happy with everything. We felt like we were staying with friends, they were so kind. Would highly recommend this cabin for anyone looking for a mountain getaway!

A great cozy home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at the Ahwahnee-be Cabin. It was cozy, clean, and you can't beat the location. The deck was large enough to have dinner and accommodate kids and our dog. We were 4 adults, and a 2 year old and a dog, and found the cabin to be very comfortable. John and Lara, the owners, were friendly, and responsive when we had questions.

We'd definitely stay here again, and recommend it highly!

This little cabin is clean and very comfortable. Just the right atmosphere for a mountain getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Although located a little close to the street, there was not much street noise to notice. The Awahnee-Be cabin is adorable. It has everything you need to enjoy a quiet and relaxing getaway. The beds are very comfy and the furniture, too. Love the little mini dishwasher in the kitchen! The entire cabin was super clean and fresh. Hope to stay there again sometime.

Charming cabin

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was well-stocked and charming. The hosts even provided coffee for the first morning's breakfast! Close to town, great outdoor deck. The third bedroom is more of an attic loft, better for children than large adults however. Very responsive owners. I wish we'd had more time there.

Cute as a Button Snow Cabin

  • 4 of 5

This is a cute as a button cabin with a gorgeous stone fireplace perfect for cozying up when it's snowy outside. They even provided a little red sled. Unfortunately, we misjudged the weather and the snow melted before we got there. So we hiked instead at the nearby trails and sat out on the deck. I was pleasantly surprised by how close and easy it was to walk into town and to the trails. Idyllwild's village is adorable, especially at night when all the restaurants are lit. We had two couples staying, and luckily we like eachother - the living area is a bit tight but good for board games and chatting. We found folding chairs by the dining table and took them out to the deck for more outdoor seating. Beware: On cold nights, the air can be smokey - all the surrounding homes light their fires. That was tough on my allergies. We did not use the basement or attic bedroom. The basement seemed like very much of a man cave. Not my thing. But if you've got a couple people you need to stash away to watch some games on TV, that's the perfect place.
