This gracious bed and breakfast is a treasure in the mountains of Idyllwild. It’s owned and run by an exceptionally conscientious young couple who have poured their energy and love into this nine-month-old inn, that could easily be featured in Architectural Digest. Brad built the inn from the ground up, including the tile, rock formations, and water feature. The inside is just as beautiful, especially the dramatic windows that capture the gorgeous outdoors from so many directions. There are only 5 spacious suites, each with its own name and uniquely, luxurious rustic style. Jacki decorated each room with class! The enthusiastic couple is justifiably proud of creating such a first class retreat!
It felt like home (a gorgeous one) when we’d return at the end of the day, with the warm welcome we got from the owners and the enthusiasm from the guests, who were all as thrilled as we were with the inn. Jacki cooks healthy, delicious gourmet breakfasts on the weekends (with Brad's help) and “continental breakfasts” (more options than anticipated) during the week.
While this is designed as a retreat, there’s free wifi and Directv for those who want to keep in touch. We’ve been to some great getaways, but this inn was a standout!
