Large house, well supplied, excellent service

  • 4 of 5

PROS: large and spacious; nice big windows; private; well supplied kitchen and amenities; close to trail-head (we walked right from house).

CONS: spa did not warm up for us effectively - granted it was quite cold but it only went up about 2 degrees after running an hour so we turned off. Probably great in sprint summer fall.

SUMMARY: we really enjoyed our stay and I would return.

If you're looking for privacy and beautiful views...

  • 5 of 5

This secluded 3 story cabin home was a wonderful getaway. The upstairs master bedroom suite was just stunning. Well stocked kitchen to cook meals or just make a pot of coffee and enjoy the views from the deck. The surprising bonus was the theater room downstairs with the GIANT screen, fireplace and leather couches that can convert to sleepers. We watched movies through Netflix and apple TV. The main floor bedroom was nice and has a shared bath you can close off. Hot tub was pre-warmed for us, nice touch. Wi-Fi worked well. Could use a few throw blankets to cozy up. The house temp was cool so bring sweatshirts or sweaters to stay comfortable. We had some snow during our say so it was chilly. Nice place for couples or families. House can easily sleep 8.

Driveway is steep but manageable and getting to town was only a 5min drive.

Relaxing Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This property was fantastic. Me and my wife checked in on a Friday and out on Sunday. We needed more time but the time spent was wonderful. I had a question about the spa and the owner text and called me within 5 mins and answered my questions. The media room worked great if you follow the instructions given. We would stay there again. No complaints.

A bucolic setting with spectacular views!

  • 5 of 5

The Media center was awesome once we figured it out. It's a bit complicated. The view from the living area is spectacular! the spa was great! Have to turn up the heat as soon as you arrive to ensure it will be warm enough later. Overall this is the perfect spot to relax and unwind. Don't forget to check out the great hiking trails in Humber Park!

Things To Know Before You Rent This Property!

  • 3 of 5

1. If you're a cook, the kitchen is well laid out and stocked satisfactorily with cookware and utensils. Good appliances. The sink looks out into a really nice greenhouse window. If you're planning to drink wine, you may want to bring your own glasses...there's only one in the house.

2. I'm sure the deck, in it's day, was quite a hangout. However, it's clearly showing its age...the lower deck in particular is close to becoming dangerous with rotted and separated wood. Parents beware.

3. There is no television on the main level. The media room looks great but I could never get the system to operate. The owner-supplied instructions gave little guidance on how to operate the system and the multitude of unlabeled buttons on the wall. Watching TV and using the media room were not a high priority for us, but for those to whom it may be, be forewarned.

4. The main floor living area, fireplace, upstairs bedroom/bath, and spa were very nice. The outdoor gas grill worked fine.

5. Accessing the property is a challenge...the owner's information package implied we should access/park from below the property but the thought of hiking luggage up a steep incline on a rough path had little appeal. We opted to access from above the property but be sure to read other reviewers' notes for more information. It's no cakewalk either.

6. Once you get settled in, the overall space and surrounding area is quiet and restful.

This year marked the 10th year my buddy and I have done a VRBO rental. This one didn't make our Top 5 list but it has its moments.

Magic in the wild!

  • 4 of 5

Firstly, I must say John was very quick to respond to any and all of our questions and recommendations. Even though the place is tucked away (which is what we were after) I found his directions easy to navigate.

My wife and child and my parents all went away for 3 nights to Idyllwild and had a blast. Falcon Rest Lodge is less than a 5 minute drive to town but far enough away that you feel you have privacy.

We had a magical 3 days staying here and we will definitely reach out to John again when we return.

About JOHN RINALDI

I also own the Eagle Rest Lodge in Idyllwild and throughout my last 20 years in San Diego, enjoy getting away to the mountains to rejuvenate.

JOHN RINALDI purchased this lodge in 2014

Why JOHN RINALDI chose Idyllwild

The vaulted ceilings, two story windows in the living room, new spa hot tub, the dual fireplaces, the privacy all combine to make this cabin a true escape from the business of life below the mountain.
