About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 4

This charming cabin is aptly named the Hobbit House and offers pet-friendly accommodations and well stocked amenities for groups of four. Guests of all ages will enjoy its outdoor entertaining options like a hot tub, cozy wood fireplace, and woodland location!

The recently remodeled home is secluded yet within easy walking distance to the shops and restaurants at Idyllwild Village. Outdoor recreation surrounds you at Idyllwild County Park and Nature Center just two miles from home, and the nearby community is artsy and quaint.

Four guests are invited to share the space, stretching their legs across two bedrooms and one full bath in the two-story home. Social areas including a spacious living room and well stocked kitchen (minus a dishwasher) are located on the main floor. Private bedrooms, each offering queen beds, are located upstairs, and the home has a new whirlpool Jacuzzi tub.

Dogs are welcome with an additional nightly pet fee. Guests can snuggle around the river rock wood stove or unwind with media entertainment including cable, a DVD/VCR player, and WiFi. Outside, the back deck includes bistro seating and grilling appliances surrounded by the beauty of nature.

This home also includes a washer/dryer for your convenience. Soak the hot tub while the laundry gets done!

The region is a hot spot for hiking or mountain biking in Mount San Jacinto State Park, and rock climbing at Suicide and Tahquitz Rock. Fishermen and swimmers will enjoy days at Lake Hemet only nine miles away, and the nearby community is welcoming with family-friendly eateries, movie theaters, and celebrations of the arts.

This relaxing cabin is the perfect place to escape from it all with close friends and family in your private woodland shire!

About Vacasa of Morongo Basin

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Great time!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was clean and there was jazz music playing upon our arrival! There are NO spices and not a lot of cooking necessities... if you are planning to cook, make sure to come prepared with some of your own supplies! Great place and hot tub. Loved our stay!

This property is not maintained well.

  • 1 of 5

We had a barbecue fire due to a grease buildup near the propane tank. The refrigerator wasn’t working. It was replaced with a small in adequate one that froze everything. With this type of maintenance we did not want to use the spa or sauna.

Cute and Close

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for us. You can't beat the location, everything you may need is within walking distance, and the neighborhood is tucked back on a side street so it's nice and quiet. if you're a larger person, or like to tie one on at the pub, I would be careful with the spiral staircase, it's sturdy, but the couch might be a better option. The house is surprisingly spacious, I thought it would be very cookie cutter and chopped up from the photos, but we were surprised to find it quite roomy. We enjoyed the Hobbit House hope you will too.

As advertised

  • 4 of 5

This was a cute little house within easy walking distance to downtown Idyllwild. As you can tell from the photos and previous reviews, the house clearly was designed by a crafty and talented woodworker, but not by an architect. <br />

<br />

I took off a star because there were ants all over the kitchen, and the hot tub was so full of chemicals that it was rendered pretty much useless for my family. Maybe fine for adults, I was also a little concerned about the sloping floor under the kitchen table, which happens to sit right above the sauna. How long before those floorboards mold through and give out completely? Yikes!
