We sat outside on his lovely patio and drank wine (wine glasses in room and a wine bottle opener provided) We were able to walk into town. If you want to go hiking at... More

We spent the weekend at Rainbow Inn. Got there a little late due to traffic, but John greeted us by name immediately. He showed us around the Inn and to our room. A great greeting with warm hospitality. The ambiance and cleanliness is what I noticed first (of course). The decor is charming, rustic and 'lodge-like'. Lots of windows. John... More

This is a great place to stay in Idyllwild. We were in the Music Room, but all the rooms look wonderful. Spend much of our time on the deck outside chatting with my cousin and her husband who are repeat visitors to this establishment. The owner John was so helpful, knowledgeable, and a great person all around. Breakfast in the... More

The B&B was charming, clean and in a great location, easily walkable to the village center and a short drive away from various hiking areas. The owner, John knows a lot about Idyllwild and will happily direct you to... More

John was a wonderful host, so thoughtful in every way. The entire property was beautiful, well kept, nicely appointed and so comfortable. Breakfast was outstanding - elegant, well done, and John even offered me gluten free French toast which was such an unexpected surprise and delicious! The atmosphere was just what my husband and I needed, and this was our... 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
