We stumbled upon this place as we had made a last minute decision to stay overnight in Idyllwild. On previous visits, I've stayed in cabins in town and rented cabins outside of town and there is no comparison. This inn is quaint, beautifully decorated, serene and just lovely. John, the owner, is very personable and runs this inn as if... More

We recently celebrated our anniversary at this comfortable, affordable inn. Our room was gracefully furnished and no detail was left out. There were several other areas to lounge in both inside and out. The art collection, library and DVD selection was an added bonus. The innkeeper was very engaging and hospitable and prepared a delicious breakfast that was beautifully presented.... More

The Rainbow Inn was an excellent stay for a B&B Inn. It is located very near town and among tall pine trees & the fresh air was great . The owner who's name is John is an excellent cook and was very accommodating and gracious. We stayed for two days. The bed was extremely comfortable. The breakfasts both days were... More

My husband and I just spent the last week in the serenely divine Rainbow Inn. John is a gracious host and a fabulous chef. The inn is quiet, scrupulously clean, elegantly appointed and perfectly located in the center of town, yet slightly off the main road. Perhaps my favorite thing was sitting on the deck in the afternoon reading a... More

Rainbow Inn was recommended to us by family that vacations in Idyllwild, and it was an excellent choice. The facility is beautifully-maintained and very cozy-comfy. The bedroom was large with an amazingly comfortable bed, modern bathroom and very good A/C. Each morning we enjoyed a delicious breakfast prepared by the owner, who is quite a cook. Everyone was served the... More

My first trip to Idyllwild, and it was wonderful. The Inn is warm and inviting, and the grounds delight with their rustic beauty. John was a wonderful host, and the breakfasts were great! He was very helpful in advising the best trail to hike for our abilities. Hope to go there again ... and again!

My family and I have been coming up from San Diego to Idyllwild for years. It's a pleasant drive and it feels like a good getaway. This weekend my husband and I went up alone for one night. This was our first experience at the Rainbow Inn, and we'll definitely be returning. The price for the room was economical, and... More

Our stay at The Rainbow Inn was fantastic...wish we had more time to stay and enjoy! From the moment we were greeted by John, the owner, to the moment we reluctantly drove away it was perfection!! We especially enjoyed the large deck overlooking the lovely back yard and wooded area which provided a lovely spot to relax and enjoy a... More

Without repeating the reviews of the previous guests, I find it difficult to find other words to describe my stay at the Inn. My visit at the Rainbow Inn did not disappoint and it lived up to its reputation as the #1 place to stay while in Idyllwild.

On a spur-of-the-moment trip to Idyllwild, and a first to the mountains of southern California, I discovered the Rainbow Inn. It’s charm was immediately apparent, even before I stepped through the door. Once inside, however, the tastefully rustic sophistication was even more awe-inspiring. The owner….John, who is even more charming than the decor….has decorated with local works of art and... More
