We went to Idyllwild to get out of the terrible smog conditions in Palm Springs, and booked this hotel. Our mistake was we booked it a day ahead of our plans, but they were so accommodating and didn't charge us for our mistake. Our room was indeed rustic and pretty small. The air conditioner was very loud, but luckily it...

We stayed two nights at the Blue Bird Cottage Inn on our stay in Idyllwild, It has about the best prices I could find for the area. The Blue Bird Cottage Inn is a rustic mountain inn built in the 1950's and has had many upgrades but it is not a luxury resort, it is a bunch of rustic knotty...

My daughter and I had one night to stay in Idylwild before a week at Astrocamp. We arrived on a quiet sunday. The front desk person was very nice and friendly. The room we had was very quaint. It is not a luxury hotel but fits the Idylwild mountain experience.

Our family of 4 and dog stayed in the owl cottage. It was a good amount of space for the cost. It was a bit run down, but had all the necessities. The kitchen came fully stocked and was easy to cook in. We stayed 3 nights and only ate out once. It's on the edge of town, so not...

I found the Blue Bird online after searching for a hotel/cabin that met my requirements: fireplace, hot tub, dog friendly and not minimum stay. We found just what we were looking for with the Blue Bird Inn. I emailed late in the night and the next day I got a response from an employee. We stayed in the Starling which...

This place was exactly what we needed. We have been working too much and dealing with the 24X7 stress of having a big family. Thanks to the Bluebird we got some much needed R and R. We liked this place from the time we got here until the time we had to go, which is right now. I wanted to...

We had a mini family reunion here. It was perfect, there was a row of cabins that we booked. Each room had little table and chairs outside on the patio. We would gather in this area anytime of the day or night to visit. There were bigger rooms with full kitchens that some of our group stayed in to accommodate...

Thanks Tony and Chris for your incomparable hospitality. Stayed 4 wonderful nights and hated to pack up and leave. The duplex was sooo comfortable, cosy and the bed was awesome. This is a home away from home and folks just keep coming back. I know we will.
