Look no further for a wonderful B & B experience, as you won't find any better than here. Jon is a charming host and great chef. The breakfast is both large and delicious. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable. Beds have high thread count sheets. Every detail is thought out as each room affords luxury along with all the necessities.... More

This is probably the hardest review I've ever tried to write. I've been sitting here trying to come up with the words to describe this fabulous B&B. So I think rather than just repeat what every other reviewer has said, I will just ditto their remarks and say that this is truely the nicest B&B I have ever stayed in.... More

We visited on May 31 and had a wonderful time. What a great B&B! The owner has made this an elegant and comfortable place. The grounds are beautiful, with flowers, landscaping and tall stately pine and cedar trees. A walkway leads down to a shaded sitting area next to a babbling brook. The inn has a number of intimate outdoor... More

This was our first time in Idyllwild, CA and we chose Rainbow Inn Bed & Breakfast for our accommodations based upon several online comments and recommendations. We were not disappointed. John, our host, could not have been more helpful and hospitable. The Inn is beautifully appointed and our room, The Strawberry Creek Room was wonderful, meaning it was cozy, welcoming... More

Last week we spent two fabulous nights at the Rainbow Inn. The B&B was amazing down to the smallest appointments both in our rooms and the large family room area provided to all guests. The owner and our host, John Simpson, was outstanding and provided for every need, from reading glasses in the salon to Tums late at night, to... More

My husband and I took a little trip to Cali. We pulled in and the place was lovely! John greeted us and showed us around the place. He's super nice and keeps his property pristine and beautiful. Our room was super clean and cozy. I flipped on the fireplace and fell asleep on the comfy chair. I loved that it... More

We made an unexpected trip. The innkeeper, John, was excellent from the minute we first called to when we departed. John was extremely accommodating. For example, he asked about dietary restrictions, which we didn't expect, & provided two excellent breakfasts following our needs. He also was able to provide us information on hiking since we weren't able to research trails... More

I have to start off by saying that the pictures DO NOT do a justice of this beautiful B&B in Idyllwild. John is a fantastic host. literally everything you could ever want in a B&B. Extremely clean, literally feels like home when you walk in. You can really tell he takes pride in what he does from the moment you... More
