Fern Valley Inn is my favorite place to stay. It's absolutely charming. From the adorable cabins to the lovely meandering grounds, it is quiet and relaxing. The owners, Marci and Gary, are always accommodating. The prices are so reasonable. The outdoor area has walkways, places to relax, a ping pong table, even a grill (although I've never used it.) All of the cabins have either a porch or a sitting area outside the room.

I've stayed in Cabin #6 Willow Haus several times. The full kitchen is great, completely equipped. I also like how there's both a front door and a back door onto the second patio.

Cabin #10 Casa Romantica is lovely as well. It's an A-Frame Loft cabin with a spiral staircase and full kitchen.

I've also stayed in the smaller rooms - #3 Nature's Cottage, and it was perfect. The last time I was there I stayed in Cabin #8 Havana Bungalow and it was a larger room with a nice sitting area. The bed and pillows were very comfortable.

Whether you're coming in the winter or summer, this is the place to stay.

Super cute and nice, well appointed rustic decor, friendly staff. Easy parking, lovely gardens, beautiful chickens. Walking distance of city center. Fireplaces in the room and a little kitchen. Very quiet and sweet

We've stayed here 3 times, most recently in December 2018 and absolutely love it. The new owners have done a wonderful job at updating without losing the charm and are very accommodating. The last two times we stayed we were in Casa Romantica and love it.
The property is quiet and off the beaten path and we love the individual cabins. Since our anniversary is in December, this is where we have stayed for our last two and will definitely stay here again.

We have stayed at the Fern Valley Inn multiple times over the last 2 years. We love it. The gardens are beautiful, the cabins are comfortable, clean, and quaint. Great location in a quiet neighborhood. It is a Traditional Mountain Inn with antique furnishings, fire places, comfy beds, and fresh air! In 2015 (?) the Inn was purchased by new owners - a lovely couple, who have been upgrading the property. Every time we come up, we notice something newly renovated. We like Cabin #7, the "Hideway". If you want to experience what old Idyllwild feels like, stay at the Fern Valley Inn.

This was the 4th time we stayed here and by far the best experience so far. We stayed at the Willow Haus, Cabin #6 with another couple. This cabin has a bedroom, living room with fireplace, dining area, and fully stocked kitchen. They even have a corkscrew for wine. There is a nice back porch with a table and umbrella, and even a mud room off of the kitchen. The grounds are very nice and peaceful and there are even chickens which lay eggs that the owners offered us. This was a very cozy cabin with a nice fireplace, they give you a starter log, but bring your own firewood. The only thing to remember when you stay in the mountains is that the water pressure is not as high as down below, but it was certainly not a problem. We were fortunate enough to have snow while we were there which made it all the more beautiful. I have to say that the owners, Gary and Marcy Erb are two of the nicest people I have ever met and are well suited in the hospitality business. There are smaller cabins at a reasonable price and they are all very nice. We can't wait to take trip number 5 up there and stay again.

Room tip: Depending on the size of your group there is a cabin for you.
