I will start by saying the owner was quite kind to squeeze us into the schedule on a last minute request for a holiday weekend with just one night available. As written by others, the Rainbow Inn is a wonderful place. Decor and furnishings are quite lovely. The upstairs lounge and breakfast room is amazing and comfortable. The outdoor patio... 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

Stayed on a Wednesday and Thursday night in June. Nice place in the mountains, convenient to everywhere you want to go in Idyllwild. The breakfast is absolutely fantastic, and John is a great host. Would gladly stay again.

We recently stayed at Rainbow Inn B&B during one of the heat spells. It was a really pleasant stay from our regular busy life. John is a wonderful host. We arrived quite late on a Friday evening and left a note for us at the main door as well as told us how to contact him. He upgraded us to... More

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!
