I stayed at the Thrush cabin of the Fireside Inn. I needed a quiet place where I could concentrate on a writing project. I brought my little dog and the food I needed and settled in for the week. Thrush was perfect for me! Has a kitchen, living room, separate bedroom, and bathroom. It is rustic but had everything I...

Charming town, but not a great introduction to it. We booked late for a post-Christmas getaway. Stayed in one of the Fireside Inn's cabins. Had no clue it was going to be a duplex. Had we known we would not have booked it. Walls were so thin we could hear the people next door snoring, but that was the least...

Room was beautiful, fireplace,quaint kitchen with everything necessary to make any meal. My room was next to highway and a bit noisy in the morning with people going to work so I suggest any room other then the two front rooms by the highway. Beautiful green area behind property to relax and read, think, or nap. Great hiking and shopping...

Wanted to do something very special for my BIG birthday. Enjoyed two previous stays at the Fireside Inn several years ago which, obviously, left a lasting impression. When I thought of being in a peaceful, beautiful, comforting environment, Idyllwild came to mind, and specifically Fireside. My dog and I enjoyed the easy 2 hour drive from Vista. We were in...

There were five of us who shared the Eagles Nest. I wouldn't stay in this unit again. It is located on the main highway so is a bit noisy. We live on a busy street and I was looking forward to a quiet mountain getaway. It's a nice mile or so walk to town. The beds were comfortable and the...

Separate from the main building, its a standalone cabin build in the 30's out of rail road ties. Full kitchen and wonderful deck out back with BBQ and patio table to eat and take in the cedars...Didn't eat out once.. thought there are some fun restaurants... check out IDYology for food or just a drink.

Stayed at the Squirrel's Nest Cabin in July. Best low cost accommodations in the area. The room was charming and the bed super comfy. Georgia at the front desk was super helpful with local restaurant recommendations, and when I had a tech problem with my cell phone, she let me use hers, and really saved the day for me. Will...
