“Over the top -- in a good way!”
Reviewed 25 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

In the past 40 years, we've stayed at hundreds of places, from $20 a night dives to $1200 per night luxury hotels. Our stay at Pine Rock Retreat was definitely in the top 5%.

My kids gave us this trip as a Father's Day/Birthday present. We had never been to Idyllwild. When we opened the door to the cabin, there was a banner with "Happy Birthday" on it, a card for me, and a basket of goodies. Wow!

But beyond that, the attention to detail was phenomenal. It started with great instructions by email. It was evident everywhere in the cabin, from a notebook filled with things to know, to little notes telling you where things were, to stocking the cabin with everything you could possibly need. In the afternoon, I was working on some of my photos on my laptop, thinking to myself, "I wish I had remembered to bring my TV table for the laptop." I went in to look, and there was not just one table, but three of them!

The cabin was stockpiled with games, books, videos -- everything a family would need to have a great time together.

The view was spectacular. It a bit bright in the early morning, but there are two big umbrellas, so you can sit out on the deck any time of day. About 1pm, the sun goes behind the house, so there's more shade, and the cool air makes the deck a delight. Want a BBQ? There's a great grill right on the deck.

Hot? Cold? No problem. There's a good heater, as well as an air conditioner. We didn't need either of them, since the weather was perfect. But the point is -- Cheryl had thought of absolutely everything. At one point, I wasn't sure how to do something on the remote. Of course, the manual was right in the notebook.

The bed was very comfortable. There's another bed in the loft, which we didn't use, but if you're a family with kids, this cabin would be perfect. I only wish we could have brought our little corgi with us, but I understand why dogs aren't allowed.

I don't give out many five star reviews, but this is one owner who deserves it.

“Perfection !”
Reviewed 6 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

From the moment I saw the cabin, 6 months of stress vanished into the pine trees. Everything was more than I hoped. Cabin clean as a whistle, kitchen appliances and
cookware was wonderful. The view was awesome. I enjoyed feeding the birds and other critters. I can't wait to return !

“A relaxing stay”
Reviewed 28 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The family is so glad about about staying at this beautiful place, especially the kids. We loved everything about this cabin. It is so warm and cozy inside but once step out to the deck, it's a whole entire different atmosphere, amazing & breathtaking view of the woods. We are back for not even a week and everyone already miss the cabin. Can't wait to go back. Thank you, Cheryl, for sharing this beautiful place.

“Perfect spot to relax”
Reviewed 8 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Even before placing a reservation, I was impressed by Cheryl's thoughtfulness and professionalism. I was afraid to commit to a reservation since we weren't sure we'd be able to get time off, and Cheryl was willing to hold onto the dates for me until we felt that we could safely book and pay for the cabin. She sent a very thorough email with all the check-in information we needed, as well as suggestions about places to eat/visit while we were there. When we arrived, the cabin was beautifully decorated and absolutely spotless. To our surprise, Cheryl and Larry provided a great selection of snacks and put together an extremely thoughtful and unexpected gift for us to celebrate our soon-to-be-born baby. The views out the back deck are just as great as advertised, and the trails behind the home are extensive and great for exploring. We had so much fun feeding the birds (and the squirrel who also takes advantage of the free seed!) and just enjoying time together. Thanks again for sharing your beautiful cabin with us!
