I've stayed here several times over the years and always enjoy a return visit. The log cabin interior is warm and welcoming, and it's so convenient having a full kitchen. Nice view of the trees from the private deck off the back. Walls are thin and I've heard some interesting things happening on the other side, but this is a... More

Will miss this quaint place to relax and get away from the turmoils of the big city.Hope the new owner will restore the place and re open it again. It is in need of new shower stalls, carpeting and in general needs to be cleaned up and modernized.

Spent one night over labor day weekend with my son. Property was not in town but was a short drive away from restaurants & businesses. Quaint property with a lot of history and fairly well maintained. Clean. TV was old and shower was ancient but worked ok. Breakfast was delivered to our door in a cute basket with oatmeal, apple,...

I Googled romantic getaways in Southern California for our 25th anniversary getaway and this came up. Pros: Close to town of Idyllwild, breakfast delivered to your door (in a little fishing basket) with fresh baked scones, pretty good hiker's picnic made by sister hotel Strawberry Creek Inn, lots of good places to hike or rock climb nearby, nice balcony with...

The Strawberry Creek Bunkhouse is very rustic, built in the 50's, bed was comfortable, the kitchenette was adequate, the proximity to downtown Idyllwild was very convenient. It was great using the motel as our "base-camp", and spending our days wandering the streets and shops of Idyllwild. The restaurants were great for lunch and dinner. My wife and I look forward...

Booked this accommodation for our get away. I wanted somewhere where there are local accessible hiking and not too commercial. I have read a few reviews and yes, it may not be a place for everyone but that totally depends on what one is looking for. The place didn't disappoint, all throughout the booking and reservation process, communication was consistent... More

We stayed here on a motorcycle trip to Idyllwild. Great location but that's it. Once you check in you're on your own. No management or ownership on site the entire weekend. Rooms are ok, but HOTTER THAN A SAUNA. Air conditioning is totally ineffective as were the ceiling fan and the free standing fan. Bathroom is disgusting! Shower needs to... More

The door to back patio broken, shower stall rusted out, refrigerator rusted out, wifi very difficult to activate. It was very hot while we there and the "cabin" only had a small wall A/C... More

I couldn't be happier! This was exactly what I needed for a getaway. My room #6 had the BEST view of the mountains. So beautiful. The room itself was so cute and comfy. I slept with the bathroom window open and the forest smell and the chilly air put me right to sleep. When I checked in, I asked the... More
