This place was exactly what we needed. We have been working too much and dealing with the 24X7 stress of having a big family. Thanks to the Bluebird we got some much needed R and R. We liked this place from the time we got here until the time we had to go, which is right now. I wanted to... More

We had a mini family reunion here. It was perfect, there was a row of cabins that we booked. Each room had little table and chairs outside on the patio. We would gather in this area anytime of the day or night to visit. There were bigger rooms with full kitchens that some of our group stayed in to accommodate... More

Thanks Tony and Chris for your incomparable hospitality. Stayed 4 wonderful nights and hated to pack up and leave. The duplex was sooo comfortable, cosy and the bed was awesome. This is a home away from home and folks just keep coming back. I know we will.

First of all, it's a great deal for Idyllwild. The rooms are clean in a cabin-like setting. I stayed at the Taj Campton Place in Francisco the night before for business. Is this the Taj? No. Should it be? Absolutely not. That's not Idyllwild. Idyllwild is a rough around the edges, eclectic mix of nature/hiking, arts, spirituality, bikers, food...it's fun... More

Accomodations in Idyllwild tend to be expansive and the Bluebird Cottage Inn represents one of the few options offering a valid choice of fairly priced clean and well equipped rooms. I spent two consecutive nights at the Bluebird during the month of April 2015 in the Swallow room. The young man present the first time I checked in was very... More

I have stayed here 3 times now and find it to be a very nice place to visit for a couple of nights. Tony and all the staff are very welcoming and I really like that they have dvds in the lobby and players in all the rooms. The rooms are simple but have the wood paneling and beamed ceilings...

We arrived late and although the surroundings looked nice and the receptionists was extremely helpful, when I got into our cabin "Falcon", I knew I made a mistake. It was rather old looking and had a stench smell. Luckily, I carry Lysol when I go on vacation - just because!!! When I went into the kitchen, I was afraid of... More

Accommodations are very dated. Very hard beds, worn out sheets, flat pillows and the mattress on the twin bed was so old that it was sunken in. Only a tiny shelf in the bathroom to put your stuff on.The shower stall is very small, however we did have very nice new fluffy towels which were the best part of the... More

We apologize you did not enjoy your stay. While the building was originally build in the 50's, we have renovated the rooms. There are new fridges with a separate freezer compartment, new furniture and new 32" lcd tvs. The sheets and pillows are less than a year old and we have included 5 pillows on the king beds and 2...

My BF and I decided to return to Idyllwild - this time for 3 nights and stayed at the Bluebird Cottage Inn. Upon arrival, we were greeted by Tony, the owner, who without any prompting from us, upgraded us to a larger room with no neighbors. We were seeking peace, quiet and relaxation and is exactly what we got! Perfect!... More
