A Gem of a deal! We stayed in the cabin named "Racoon's Retreat". It was very cute and well appointed. It has a kichenette which consists of a stove top, sink, microwave and small fridge. Perfect for making a meal or two if you don't feel like going out to one of the many great restaurants on the Hill. In... More

Squirrels Nest was the perfect spot for me. I've stayed at Fireside Inn before and this little cabin is now my favorite. It's got all the amenities I need, microwave, refrig, good closet space and a no frills but certainly adequate bathroom and a very comfortable bed plus cute FIREPLACE. The Fireside is within easy walking distance of town, shopping,... More

I booked this Cabin just after spending the weekend at the Blue Bird lodge fire sides sister in the mountains. It's not very often you trade tradition for something new we did and my oh my what...

I always thought I would write a review for Fireside Inn, but never had done so until now. In 2013 we spent three days and two nights at the Fireside Inn; once in the winter and once in the summer. Both times were a wonderful experience with the Inn itself, with the contrast in weather, and with town of Idyllwild.... More

We stayed in the Blue Jay and it was perfect - cozy cabin with a mini fridge, and a good selection of DVDs in the office in case you need to unwind. Short drive to great hiking. Walking distance with decent road shoulders to restaurants on both ends of town, across from church.

Lark is a nice, one-bedroom, duplex cabin right off of Highway 243. It has an eat-in kitchen with living room and two beds in the bedroom. I stayed there for six days, including the 4th of July, and enjoyed my visit. I would stay again. The Fireside Inn cabins are close to the Idyllwild School for the Arts, which is... More

We have stayed in Thrush, The Bluebird, The Lark, The Warbler and The Lodge House cabins more than once, (Bluebird and The Lodge are our favorites). We have not yet been able to secure a reservation... More

My friend and I stayed at the Fireside Inn 2. The Bluebird is a nice cabin off the main highway. The beds were comfortable and the Jacuzzi tub was great! Full size kitchen, but if you plan on making pasta, bring a large enough pot. That was the only thing the kitchen didn't have (perhaps a previous patron helped themselves... More

We stayed in the Thrush Cabin it was very cozy just what we were looking for. The owners are very nice and friendly as far as the town of Idyllwild it is a hidden gem. Not like other mountain town's that are too resort like with a party atmosphere. A great romantic city with shops and restaurants and more friendly... More

We stayed for a week at Meadowlark cottage. We absolutely liked it. Everything was very good - dishes, pots, pans, detergents and other essentials were provided. The house has full size kitchen with stove & fridge. The cottage was very clean and quiet (it is actually in the woods). Pam (the owner) was really nice and helpful. I messed up... More
