We stayed in the larger of two cabins that had all comforts of home. We were greeted by very friendly Inn keepers Oscar and Susan cabin was clean had extra blankets two wonderful decks a view of beautiful pine trees and fresh mountain air. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook. However the grocery store was expensive. So if you plan on preparing your meals shop prior to your arrival. My favorite time was in the morning drinking coffee on the deck wrapped up in a blanket and feeling very much at peace. The town of Idyllwild has shops art musemus, jewelry stores full of custom pieces done by the local artist.
There are two full service bars in town to get a drink and enjoy happy hour. The Gastrodome (our favorite) and Jo Anns. You will find the BEST struddel in the world was at a little place called Natures Wisdom .... Oh my goodness.... There are walking trails everywhere depending on your fitness level and even a place to get a massage afterwards. If you live in SoCAL and want to get away to the mountains for a quiet weekend, this is a good place to do so. There is no skiing and right now NO SNOW. But still lots of fun things to do and see.
My only suggestion to make this B&B great to greater would be to upgrade the bed and bedding and perhaps the carpet in the bedroom needs to be cleaned.
