We had a lovely two-day anniversary stay at the Quiet Creek Inn. The owners kindly gifted us a lovely bottle of wine upon our arrival and also upgraded our accommodations. The rooms are very comfortable and clean. There are comfortable chairs near the edge of the stream running behind the cabins. We will most definitely return.

A lovely experience from soup to nuts. Exquisite attention to detail. We had to leave much too quickly. The landscaping is gorgeous, lots of storage in the cabins, maybe bring hangers. Just be sure to get any of your local sightseeing questions answered between 9 - 5 pm as the front desk is not staffed outside of these hours. Kudos... More

Relaxing but read cancellation policy carefully I booked on booking.com and got caught in an 8 day out cancellation policy. The hotel is not pet friendly the hotel has certain pet friendly rooms and if you book the wrong room it's costly to change. The hotel is nice and relaxing and one of the nicest in the tiny town.

Dear RockinLAWoman, My staff and I are thrilled to hear you enjoyed your stay; You're correct: like many smaller hotels and inns worldwide, our policies differ from standard big chain hotels which normally allow you to cancel up the night before. Your words of wisdom to other travelers to carefully read policies and rate terms is good advice when buying... More

Nicely furnished cabins in wooded setting along seasonal creek. Private deck on back of each cabin to enjoy the wildlife and solitude of being in nature. There are 3 sets of pillows on the beds that come in 3 different levels of firmness. I've never slept on more comfortable pillows! Will be checking into where they can be purchased. We... More

Dear BBlumfield, Please accept our apologies for your experience making a reservation for a possible stay at our inn.

This is my favorite weekend getaway spot. It's beautiful, peaceful and quiet. Deliciously quiet. My wife and I love to sit on the deck in the morning drinking coffee and feeding peanuts to the squirrels. Or we sit in the hammock in the evening watching the birds fly through the trees. The owners are great -- very welcoming and helpful.... More

My girlfriend and I traveled over 2.5 hours with our very small, non-shedding dog and were looking forward to a wonderful time in Idyllwild.

Beautiful property with clean and affordable pet friendly cabins. We stayed in 2 cabins; temperature was in the mid to high 90's but only 1 cabin was air conditioned. The small cabin felt very small with a tiny balcony but the king cabin was a suite with much more space. Furnishings felt oversized for the limited space. Cabins could be... More
