I stayed here as part of a retreat. The facility worked well for us, in that the layout, # rooms, Lodge space, etc. were convenient and functional. Make no mistake about it, though. It's not super clean and every room has something really funky about it. The vibe is somewhere short of charming or rustic -- more like a cobbled... More

We traveled to Idlywild with family and our room (in triplex) was run down, old, dirty carpets and furniture that looked like Goodwill rejects . Another family member rented a one bedroom cabin and it was beautifully furnished with new and clean everything. You might assume that my room was much cheaper but actually the difference between the prince and... More

My husband and I had a film premiering at the Idyllwild International Film Fest, so we made reservations at the Silver Pines Lodge based on a friend's recommendation and the reviews. I spoke to the owner Chris and she recommended that we stay at Lodge 5 Wild Strawberry, which is the upstairs unit with only one unit attached below (Lazy... More

This lodge in Idyllwild is on a quiet street not far from the center of town. We have been staying in Idyllwild for a number of years and this is the first time we've been to Silver Pines, but it won't be the last! The prices are reasonable and the rooms are cute, cozy and have Wifi. You have options... More

Our weekend could not have been more perfect!!! Outstanding hospitality, starting with a happy greeting from the owners dogs!!! Cozy cabin with a roaring fire to keep us warm. Beautiful property!! Walking distance to town, hiking along the creek or they have a game & DVD exchange at the lodge!! We will definitely be back again!! Fabulous!!!!

I have stayed at the Silver Pines Lodge many times, in many seasons. The rooms and cabins are comfortable and cosy, with fireplaces and antiques. There is a common room with a huge fireplace, comfortable leather sofas and wonderful collectible decor. The lodge and its cabins are in a cluster of towering pines and oaks, with a stream at the...

If you're in need of detaching from the "excitement" of the city, then I strongly recommend Silver Pines Lodge. More specifically, cabin Vista. A modest little 1 bedroom, the likes of which we never even see. The living room offers two large futons which we literally live in the entire time. It has a wonderful sliding glass door with views... More

I booked a room for my very first vacation getaway with my beautiful girlfriend and our two dogs. Chris was very helpful on the phone but even more in person. Our room was spectacular, the lodge was warm, romantic, serene and very dog friendly. Abby and I will be coming back very soon. We loved Silver Pines and it made... More

We tried out the Silver Pines Lodge for a couple of days in April and loved it. We also loved the town of Idyllwild, with its shops, restaurants and stores, and great hiking trails. Our room had a microwave, fridge, sitting area, balcony and nice bed. Very reasonably priced. The lodge also had a great greeting room with comfy chairs,... More

Part of the perfection was the waking to inches of snow on the ground with it still falling. Another part of perfection is that we love fireplaces and kept it roaring. It was amazing to be at such a reasonably priced location with my giant dog Dunkin welcomed. Dunkin made friends with Chris' dog Sully and experienced his first time... More
