We've stayed in more expensive places that didn't come close to the wonder of this haven. Last year, we spent most of our honeymoon there, and we immediately booked the same room for our anniversary this year. We've already reserved the same week next year. I don't expect to go anywhere else for an anniversary. Ever. And we aren't exactly easy to please. We like peace, quiet, comfort, beauty, good food, and attention to detail.
John is a wonderful cook, so if you are looking for a healthy and ample breakfast, look no farther.
The Inn is beautiful and quiet. The enormous deck on the second floor is a perfect place for soaking in the sun, reading a book, chatting, reviving your soul in the pines, watching the stars come out in the evening, or drinking a glass of wine/champagne to celebrate life.
All the rooms are comfortable and well-appointed. Every amenity is there--bathrobes, coffee pot (though fresh coffee is available any time if you ask Jon to set it up the night before), refrigerator, wine glasses, bottle opener, hair dryer, good towels, lots of plugs, wi-fi Internet, library of videos, books, games...I'm sure I forgot something. And if there IS anything you need, just ask. I injured my knee on a hike; John handed me a cane.
The Inn is close to the town center, but just far enough across the creek to be away from traffic or noisy businesses. If I had a home in Idyllwild, this would be it.
