Description of the Idyllwild vacation cabin rental
Especially in late winter and early spring, the sound of rushing water is the first thing to greet you when you step out of your car in front of the cabin.

The warmth of a huge fireplace, the view from floor to ceiling windows to enjoy the forest scene, and the sound of the creek--it doesn't get much better.

There are lots of cabins in Idyllwild, but very few offer our unique creekside setting. Combine that with the luxury of being well set back from the road (another Idyllwild rarity) and privacy from neighbors and you've really got something special.

White Horse offers a peaceful mountain retreat, one hour from North San Diego County and 45 minutes from Palm Springs. Huge, inviting fireplace, woodsy setting, and a great deck to take it all in. The view from the small dining table overlooks our deck and beyond to the creek's rocks and small waterfalls. On a quiet morning, it's not unusual to see deer strolling down the creek. This A-frame cabin's wood interior provides the expected mountain ambiance yet this home provides all the modern conveniences. Whether used as a romantic honeymoon venue, a fun-filled family retreat, or just a quick weekend getaway, this place is special.

The cabin occupies over a half acre of fenced horse facilities, making it very unique for horse owners to bring their 4-legged friends. Named for the owner''s favorite horse, guests with and without horses will enjoy White Horse Cabin's unique privacy, yet close proximity to all that Idyllwild has to offer.

This home is much loved and used by its owners, thus providing our guests an instant feeling of "home" instead of "rental." Idyllwild is a very family-friendly town, where people can get back to nature, explore the creek right outside, hike, mountain bike, or visit the the town's shops, art galleries, restaurants, and entertainment venues and the well known Idyllwild Art Academy Nature Center. You can enjoy fine or casual dining, see a first-run movie, listen to live music any night of the week, or check out the Idyllwild museum showcasing the area's rich cattle country/mining heritage.
Area Information
Idyllwild is located between Palm Springs, Temecula and Hemet. Lake Hemet is a 20-minute drive from the cabin. The town is surrounded by National, State, and County Forest and park lands and sits below the iconic Taquitz Peak, popular with climbers. Sitting at about 6500 feet in Riverside county, the town is a 4-season location with snow in the winter.

More about the owner
  • About:

    We purchased White Horse as a one- year "experiment" 9 years ago. Fell in love with the cabin and Idyllwild and still can't bear the thought of parting with it! We frequently visit our cabin as it's only about an hour away, yet feels like another world. Not to many places can you watch snow fall...
