Amazing in so many ways

Woodland has several different Cabins - my review is on the Stonewood Cabin
This cabin has the most wonderful location on the hill, with a large deck above the trees offering great view into chain of mountains and the distant valley between them.
The cabin is equipped with high quality furniture, 3 flat TVs, and 3 dvd players. At the living room the TV is Samsung 55" and the DVD is BOSE with BOSE set of speakers!
The kitchen has everything we needed including dishwasher, olive oil, sets of teas.
And there is BBQ on the deck.
The showers are very convenient, and the only complaint I had was the toilet too small.
When we checked in the owner offered us to select DVDs out of their big library for free, and there were more CDs and DVDs at the cabin itself.
The internet speed was surprisingly high, I didn't expect that speed in such a place.

    It is always a good experience when your expectations are exceeded. A recent stay here did just that. When renting cabins in the woods in the past, I always expect a few compromises. This is what a "cabin" is about in my mind.

    In this case I don't feel like there were any whatsoever. The rooms were clean, well appointed, and in the case of the kitchens better appointed than most hotel rooms in which I've stayed. Add this to friendly staff, and the quite mountain setting, and we're already planning our next stay.

    We have just returned from a weekend at the Woodland Park Manor. This mountain retreat was quiet and charming, nestled just off the main strip in town on South Circle.

    We experienced great service from the family who runs the little place, and felt very welcomed. It was hard to come back down the mountain afterwards. The cabin was not luxurious, but it was cozy. One side of the cabin had floor to ceiling windows, and the dining table and two comfortable upholstered rocking chairs were strategically placed to enjoy the view. The cottage had a small, well-equipped kitchen, a queen and double bed, and a small bathroom. The beds are divided by a wall, but they are not in seperate rooms. This was not a problem for us but it would be useful for some travelers to know that privacy between the bedrooms was not possible in our room. The inn does provide a seperate area with a third bed for a small upgrade if privacy is an issue.

    The peace and tranquility of the location, as well as the presence of a pool made this place ideal for our family. The owners provided a wide range of free video and DVD rentals (new releases and classic favorites), and the rooms had media equipment to watch the movies. Cable TV, which is not usually provided in cabin settings, was a plus because it allowed the boys to watch Nickolodeon and Disney channel in the morning.

    If you are looking for an pleasant, affordable stay in Idyllwild this little group of cottages is just the place. The park area outside has a swing and a tetherball for the kids, or young at heart, to enjoy. The pool is medium sized and well maintained. Our kids are 7 and 10, and they enjoyed the fact that the pool depth went to 8 feet. We brought our own diving toys and towels, which worked well.

    The only drawbacks that might trouble some travelers were: (1) the low height of the showerhead (2) the uncomfortable bed pillows, and (3) having your room cleaned is not part of the regular service (it is available for a small additional fee). None of these were a problem for our family, but might trouble travelers looking for more luxury.

    We paid $105 per night for our cottage, which we thought was an excellent value.

    We took a chance and stayed here last summer without a recommendation. We were so happy with it, we came back over New Years.

    Woodland Park Manor consists of a series of duplex cottages spread out over several acres of land and includes a pool and a picnic / barbecue / play area in the center. There are nice trees on the property although the Bark Beetle has taken its toll.

    The duplexes consist of a large side which includes a queen size bed and a full size bed in a nook and a kitchen. There is a fire place. It also includes an outside deck with a table. I haven't stayed on the smaller side but I know it does not include a kitchen or a deck. If coming with a number of people, one can take the whole duplex - the sides can be connected through a door. The duplexes are pleasant with floor to ceiling windows and good ventilation. There are many squirrels running around on the property. Each room also includes a VCR and TV and there is a library of videos which can be checked out at no cost at the front desk.

    If you have kids, this is a real nice place to stay.

    The primary negative is that vibrations (e.g. stomping around) and loud noises can carry from one side of the duplex to the other. If you have hyper kids, this can be a problem if you are not renting the whole unit.

    If you are looking for something fancy, go somewhere else. If you are looking for something with a nice woodsy feel, this is a good spot.

    Woodland Park Manor also rents out a series of cabins which are off the main premises. I can't speak for them.

    Their website is www.woodlandparkmanor.com.

    I belive the large side of the duplex goes for around $105 / night and the small side for around $85 / night.
