Rainbow Inn Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #2 of 9 Idyllwild B&B and Inns
Reviewed 2 July 2012

My girlfriend treated me to a weekend getaway at this place. The guys are amazing hosts. Very nice and creative breakfast. Quaint living room to hang out and chat with the other guests, and the place is set in a fantasy like town. This place is what movie directors are going for when they're projecting a dreamy town. Everything about this place and the community around it is perfect.

Twice now we have stayed at the Rainbow Inn prior to moving to Idyllwild - once for our 15th Anniversary and once just before moving - and both times were absolutely perfect. The owner John is a perfect host, warm & welcoming to all. The rooms are great - from the smaller "cozy" rooms to the bigger luxury room with the amazing tub with the jacuzzi jets. Located along Strawberry Creek, the place is absolutely beautiful and offers gorgeous views to relax and let go all your worries and stresses from the "Big City" while listening to the creek. Wake up in the morning to coffee brewing and relax around the table with the other guests while eating a great home cooked breakfast. While you are there, don't forget to check out some of the great hand crocheted scarves/shawls or handcrafted jewelry John has for sale, too!

Room Tip: If in doubt, call and talk to John to help pick a good room best suited for you.

The host, John Simpson, will make you not only welcome but like you are home! The freshly prepared breakfast is to die for! The B&B is kept immaculate and the rooms are very comfortable. Their extensive DVD and book library is beyond great. Grab a book and sit out on the balcony with the Strawberry Creek babbling in the background and let yourself go! Ican't justify the greatness of this place in writing! You must see it for yourself!

Room Tip: Ask for the Sunset Room for the relaxing whirlpool bath!

Lon & John are perfect hosts of a perfect B&B. My partner and I spent our anniversary here and had a wonderful weekend. From the warm and cozy room, to the relaxing guest lounge, to the friendly and healthy breakfast - everything was perfect. We loved the company of our hosts and other guests. The cheese and wine was a nice bonus. We will be back. Richard & Antonio.

We stayed in the Swan Lake suite one night for our 47th anniversary. Lon & John made us feel like we were special friends that had dropped in for an overnighter. Great room...awesome breakfast! We managed to pick a night when Ma Nature decided to lay down about 10" of cold, white, fluffy stuff and, although it made getting around town a little challenging, it was beautiful and made us appreciate the fireplace in our room even more. Lon even went so far as to brush the snow off our (and all the other guest's) vehicles any time we were heading out. This was our 1st B&B and it exceeded all our hopes and expectations.

Highly recommended!

Thanks Lon & John!
