I have had the pleasure of staying at Knotty pines on several occasions , with kids and just my husband and myself. We always have a great time.Its just such a peaceful place. The owners of this property have always been so nice and very welcoming to us. I love how every cabin is different and I love the porchs!! And yes, sometimes there are bugs and stuff ... its called the great outdoors, and bugs live there too. :)

This was our first trip to Idyllwild. We chose Knotty Pine Cabins because they have a couple of cabins you can have a dog in. Wow, what a great choice. The property is kept up so nice. It was a beautiful, peaceful setting that we loved. The cabin had everything we needed, and we loved the front porch and the back deck. Our dog loved watching all the squirrels in the trees behind the cabin. We will definitely be back for another stay. The owners, Ed and Sandy were very friendly. We have stayed in cabins in Big Bear and in Tahoe, and our cabin at Knotty Pines was by far my favorite place. We stayed in the Pine Cone cabin.

Room Tip: If you are traveling with a dog, the Pine Cone cabin is a great choice.

A last minute trip to Idyllwild found us staying at the Knotty Pines. The owners were very nice and cut us a break on the price, the cabin was perfect. A very short walk to town made for a perfect day. We will be back again, a very nice place.

Room Tip: The Security Lodge cabin is perfect if you have a large group.

We returned to Idyllwild and again checked out several places to stay. Once again, we chose the Knotty Pines Cabins. There property is so clean and the grounds are immaculate. Their cabins are all decorated so nicely that we couldnt find anything we liked better in this great little town. We especially liked the fact that we didnt have to move the car once we were settled in. The town shops and restaurants are all within a 10 minute walk. The cabins are situated right in the beautiful trees and you can smell the forest. We talked to the innkeepers Ed and Sandy for quite some time and they couldnt be nicer. We have decided that from now on, we are staying at the Knotty Pines Cabins on all of our future visits to Idyllwild. Thanks Ed and Sandy for keeping your place so nice and comfortable!!!

Room Tip: All the cabins are great!!

Our stay at the Knotty Pines Cabins was very nice. The cabins sit on a beautiful piece of property, just a short walk to downtown shops and restaurants. We were able to look at several of the cabins and they were all very clean with all the ammeneties one would need for a stay in the mountains. The one we stayed in had a very nice porch to sit and relax after a long walk as well as a very nice fireplace. Firewood is available. The innkeepers were very nice and were able to answer any questions we had. We have stayed in several places in Idyllwild over the years. When we go back we will stay at Knotty Pines Cabins.

The price is affordable. The accomodations are not luxurios or anything, but sufficient and ordinary - maybe even a little old (even for a cabin). It would've been worth the night's rate IF there weren't black bugs (water bugs?) crawling on the bathroom floor (not pleasant when you're barefoot and you have to use the restroom in the middle of the night). Not to mention, I was chewed alive by mosquitos.

Not the worst place I've been to. I'd stay again... if I had to.
