This 4200 sq. ft. luxury estate sits on an acre of gardens in the heart of Idyllwild. It is the perfect home for special occasions or holidays. Relax by the stream or solar-heated swimming pool. There's even a grand piano and an outdoor ping pong table! We are within 5 minutes walking distance from downtown with its many restaurants, bars, microbrewery, and live music every night. The national forest that surrounds us has several hiking and biking trails with magnificent views.
The Idyllwild Manor offers luxury and comfort for those who appreciate the difference. It is perfect for gatherings and retreats. A huge, fully appointed country kitchen has everything needed for preparing a Sunday morning waffle or a Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings. All you have to bring is the food. Creekside dining, a fireplace, large living room with tall ceilings, sun room, covered outdoor patio with a gas barbecue, and extensive landscaping make this a lovely place to get together. There is a year-round hot tub that is enclosed with lots of windows and a skylight so guests can soak, watching the snow fall. A solar-heated swimming pool in the summer, simply adds to the charm. Five spacious bedrooms easily sleep 12-14 people. Our beds consist of two Kings (one Cal King and one Eastern King), two Queens, two Doubles, and one single. We also have a twin pillow-top air mattress and two portable cribs available, if needed. As an added benefit, our cleaning crew and laundry service pay particular attention to all of our bedding and linens to be sure they are clean and fresh! All of our 500 thread count sheets and pillow shams are pressed! This is 5-star hotel quality.
The toys, entire library of books, comfortable floor plan, Kettler outdoor ping pong table, corn hole bean bag game, and extra rooms for the children to play make this a wonderful family getaway, just a hop, skip, and jump from Idyllwild's famous community playground. We have a number of games, including Chess and Scattergories, Taboo, and Scrabble. Downtown Idyllwild, with its galleries, shops, antique stores, wine bars, and restaurants, is just around the corner. Idyllwild Arts Academy offers free performances and art exhibits throughout the year, plus summertime classes and workshops. Hiking and biking trails abound and all of them are magnificent!
Come to the Idyllwild Manor and enjoy the change of the seasons, the butterfly gardens, seasonal mountain stream, hot tub, swimming pool, creek-side patios, ping pong table, and the nighttime splendor of the stars.
