When we arrived all we could hear were the birds throughout the forest. Very quite. Great change from our city life. My wife, our dog Luna, and I stayed in one of the pet friendly cabin suites. Very cozy, with the bed in front of the fireplace and a table just right for two. If there was a restaurant within... More

Hi John, Glad to hear you had such a relaxed and enjoyable stay... On your next visit, consider Mile High Café Restaurant. Don't know if 15-20 min walk is just right or too much of a walk, but they are our closest breakfast, lunch and (weekend) dinner spot and we eat there all the time ourselves. See you back soon!

I recently stayed here for one night for a quick getaway from San Diego. When I arrived, I was given a warm welcome including a personal tour of the property and suggestions of what to do in the area. My room was very comfortable, fully equipped with a kitchenette, a fireplace, and a comfy bed. The cabin had a deck... More

My husband and I had a reservation for Valentine's Day weekend. We had to cancel two days before due to a medical problem. Their cancellation policy says that you are charged the full amount if you cancel within two weeks of your resevation. I know that many b&b's will not charge you if they can fill the room. When I...

Hi Teresa, We’re very sorry that you and Carl could not make your planned Valentine’s Day getaway for the combined President’s Day holiday weekend due to the medical appointment. While we understand and can sympathize that you’re upset, calling us ‘Dishonest’ simply because we were upfront and honest about our cancellation policy is not only unfair, but misleading and inappropriate....

IDYLLWILD. EDELWEISS. QUIET CREEK INN. My wife and I spent three days in Idyllwild this past Christmas (Cristes Maesse 2014). The drive from Mid-City in Los Angeles to the San Jacinto Mountains is no biggie, a pleasant romp through endless lemon groves replete with thousands of Langstroth beehives. Then we climbed up and up and up to Mile-High Idyllwild, a... More

Just got back home from staying at the Quiet Creek Inn. Had a very nice time there. I will give some feedback. The pros: when we arrived, the owner personally circled on a map all the points of interest he thought we would like. I thought that was a nice touch. He seemed very polite and helpful. He walked us... More

Hi Jeff, We’re glad to hear you thoroughly enjoyed your stay with us at Quiet Creek Inn, and thank you for your great compliments. You are correct, as many of the pet rules we have are common sense; unfortunately, as you guessed, not everyone has the same understanding of common sense and we have indeed had folks who thought that...

We've been coming to the Quiet Creek Inn for years. The new owners - Mark and Nathan - have made so many great improvements. The cabins now have many luxury items, to include the softest sheets ever, great mattresses, new couches, and lots of high-end touches. They are both so nice and helpful. We spent four nights over the winter... More

we just got home from a perfect 5 nights in a king suite. The suite was perfect for us and our dog. Our dog loved watching the squirrels and taking walks around the grounds. The cabin was so perfect we stayed onsite most of the time with a fire going and a perfect view with Blue Jays, squirrels and bunnies.... More

We stayed at the Big Oak Retreat. This was the second year we have stayed there. We have dogs so that was our first concern. This property has a dog run which is wonderful. It has a deck with a hot tub which the kids really loved. It has three bedrooms, two bath and a HUGE fireplace. We love this... More

Very clean and quiet. Hand fed squirrels from our deck. Fantastically comfortable beds. Shower nozzle needs to bend down more for shorter folks but they said they are working on that. No AT&T cell phone service when we were there but wifi worked great. Would definitely return.

Thank you Shannon for your kind words, and we're elated you had such a great time! While we've already enhanced and changed all the showerheads, we are looking at other options to improve them further, including an adjustable handheld 'waterpik' type wand like in our King Suite and Premium View King Suite Accessible units (both already have those).

Not service dog friendly. New owners-last owners very nice. We used to stay here all the time but service has declined. We prepaid our room so we picked up key and went elsewhere for lodging. New lodging was larger, excellent and less expensive.

We’re sorry we didn’t fit your budget, and know there are certainly more economical (though not as nice) options for accommodations. My staff and I take exception however, as we are very ADA service animal and pet friendly, with extensive training on how to recognize and welcome true ADA service animals. We have to admit that we were quite baffled... More
