Cozy and clean with great views!

We have been going to Idyllwild for the past couple years and always go through Idyllwild Vacation Cabins. Martha is always helpful, & check-in/out is a breeze. Alpine Chalet is a cozy and clean cabin. The view and peacefulness while enjoying the deck and jacuzzi were great! I would definitely stay here again.


Peaceful mountain retreat with all the amenities!

We had the best time here at alpine Chalet! The weather was cool and foggy the first day which was great for the hot tub... the second day we woke up to the gorgeous view I was anxiously anticipating for the mountains in the distance (which we hiked up that afternoon...awesome hike, take lots of water and snacks and get wilderness pass in town of Idyllwild before trying to hike anywhere). The cabin was cozy and fit all of us, the only "downside" was no doors to bedrooms to close off the sound of snoring friends ;) We used the grill to cook and the fireplace to keep warm. The bathroom is good size and updated so that was great...even considering there was only one bathroom it worked out well for all of us :)I highly recommend staying here...we all agreed we would book this specific cabin again in the future!Enjoy!


Amazing Experience

We were searching for a calm, tranquil place to get married in the woods. Martha and Christopher were amazing to work with. They helped us find this secluded, lovely cabin which fit our needs wonderfully. I would recommend this cabin to anyone! We plan on coming back every year on our anniversary.


Wonderful and just the right fit!

Martha was wonderful to work with. I told her the reason for my visit and she suggetsed the perfect place for a romantic get-away anniversary weekend.My husband and I had a great time and really enjoyed the peace and privacy of this quaint and artistic home.If everyone ran their vacation rental business like Martha there would be no reason for second guessing any upcoming trip. Kudos for doing such a good and genuine job!!

Manager Response

I really appreciate that! Thank you so much for being a great guest.Martha


Best view in the valley!

We had a wonderful time. The view from the deck was well worth the stay ( I walked the whole area and it had the best view by far from any of the other houses on the block)! The hot tub was a nice bonus also. The only complaint I had was with the TV/DVD player. When you would play a dvd it would be static most of the way through the movie. It would have been nice if it was a blu-ray instead of an outdated dvd player. We brought some blu-ray dvds and weren't able to play them. Also, a new Hdmi cable would have been nice to see instead of all those crazy wires coming out of the tv to dvd unit. We had a little trouble figuring out how to get stations with the tv meaning what input channel it needed to be on. I believe it was input 5 for the tv and input 9 for the dvd player. Luckily we had someone there who knew electronics otherwise we would have been without being able how to figure out how to watch the TV ( a users guide on the coffee table would have been helpful. I wonder if the owner's ever actually tried to watch tv or a full dvd all the way through). Although we had plenty of towels, there were only two washclothes for the place. Also, even though the beds were very comfy, there weren't enough pillow cases for the extra pillows in the closet. The kitchen was very nice. The icecube maker wasn't working and there were only two icetrays(luckily we brought extra). Also, it would have been nice to have a pitcher there to make tea or orange juice. After all is said and done, I would still stay there in a heartbeat!


Breathtaking View

The alpine Chalet offers a breathtaking view. The cabin was adorable and the service that Idyllwild Vacations Cabins was excellent. We had a great weekend that offered quiet and a great view of the outdoors!


beautiful views and total relaxation!!

I called to see about renting a cabin for a weekend stay and while talking to Martha, she was so helpful and nice to me on the phone, I decided on staying for a week. That was a very good decision since our stay was a very memorable one. My husband and I and our daughter and her fiancee and their dog had a wonderful time in our cabin--Alpine Chalet. The cabin was perfect!!! Had all the comforts of home and many more. The view from the wrap around deck were so awesome and the yard was fenced in so the dog had a play area too. It was so peacefully quiet and that made the hot tub on the deck a perfect beginning and end to a wonderful day. I can't say enough good things about the cabin and especially how well we were treated by Martha and her son. I loved the kitchen with its state of the art appliances and the bbq grill was the best. Having cable and internet was definitely a plus for us too. There were so many places to eat and stuff to do in Idyllwild . There was not a thing to not like about this vacation. I would recommend everyone heading to this area in California to call Martha and have a wonderful vacation like we did.


Fully detoxed from the city

My wife and I spent our 5yr anniversary at the alpine Chalet to get away from the la smog, traffic and normal hustle-n-bustle. We had never visited Idyllwild, but both grew up in the Southeast. We wanted to just "sit" calmly and quietly without hearing, seeing or being in the usual impatient and hurrying circumstances we have during the week. The alpine Chalet delivered in a huge way!!!The property manager Martha was prepared and pleasant and the property was immaculate. We had the comforts we're used to, but still had the "cabin feeling" we wanted. The alpine Chalet was absolutely spotless and perfectly situated for privacy and seclusion for us to enjoy our anniversary alone. We spent the weekend enjoying the beautiful views from the private hot tub of the snow-capped mountains while enjoying our wine and laughing and remembering our past 5yrs together. I can say without a doubt that we will return, and when we do, it will be to the alpine Chalet. Btw...breakfast at the Red Kettle was also great. I would tell you more but then it may be reserved when we go to book our next visit. Haha! Seriously speaking...any couple looking for a getaway with great amenities and privacy within a short drive from la should look very closely at the alpine Chalet. It exceeded our expectations and my wife and I travel very often and have been all over the us and abroad.


Relaxing mountain getaway

This cabin was perfect for a family of 4 for 3 nights. We were there during the first snow so it was very cold to say the least. Management had turned on the heat ahead of time to welcome us, nice touch. Downtown is about a 30 - 45 minute hike one way, teenagers love it...jk! The hot tub was a daily routine during our stay and the view was amazing. Our black lab loved the enclosed big yard and all the squirrels. Martha form Idyllwild vacation rentals was friendly and helpful in recommending some great places to eat. Will use this service again. Maybe a cabin a little closer to town next time.


What a magical place

Alphine Chalet was one of the cosyiest cabins with amazing views. Very clean and put together. Had everything in the cabin you would need. The views from the deck were just magical and best part, there is a hot tub out there! It's great for a family or a romantic get away. It was like being in a small town with a big city mentality. Amazing hiking trails. I highly recommend this get away!


An amazing Stay

I took my Fiance here for our 3 year anniversary and we both absolutely loved it. It is a very private cabin, and the view you get from the large deck in the back is absolutely amazing. I dont think i've ever been more relaxed in my life. You can sit out back and just listen to the wind blowing. The jacuzzi on the deck was brand new and roomy. the kitchen is fully stocked to cook some awesome meals. The cabin was very clean, the bed is very comfortable and it stays very cool, even on a hot day. You are only 5 minutes of driving away from the town. Everything was great and I'm already thinking about the next trip up.


Great Place

Nicely appointed cabin with great view. A bit small, but cozy. It only lacks a hot tub. Great support from the agency.


Extremely relaxing

The service was excellent from the first phone call I made to Martha, until we left the hill. The alpine Chalet was very comfortable and very clean. Martha was always available. The location was very private and the view was gorgeous. The home had everything we needed for our stay. What we loved best was the privacy and the view. We were very comfortable.

Thank you very much. We loved having you and hope you'll visit Idyllwild again soon.Martha SanchezIdyllwild Vacation Cabins


Nice overall experience

This cabin was a nice experience all around: easy with the reservation/deposit aspect, getting settle in and out, the cabin was clean, plenty of dishes/utensils/condiments/bed-wear.It was nestled amongst other cabins but in a remote area with a great view of mountains in the distance with tall pines and trees in the foreground.10 minutes from town.The only thing I found lacking and needing better of what is there now is a television set. The flat screen there is way too high (above the enormous fireplace) and too small (32") for that area. It seriously give one a neck ache. A 50 or so would be more appropriate.Otherwise, it was a great experience and one cabin that I would recommend.
