Met the owner GARY at front desk and right there you felt like you were going to have nice stay !
We stayed in the Schoolhouse and although a little small it was really just perfect !! Room was very clean the patio area was perfect and the total time very serene !! We TOTALLY RECOMMEND FERN VALLEY INN and will be back !!

My girlfriend and I stayed at cabin #7, the Hideaway. The cabin was very nice, with a fireplace, small fridge, full bathroom (I believe is one of the few cabins at Fern Valley with a bath tub), AC, and HD TV! The Fern Valley Inn also has a small swimming pool. Extremely quiet place, 10 minutes walk from the main part of town where the shops and restaurants are. The owner Gary was very nice as well. We will come back soon. If you want a nice quiet place, this is the place to stay at.

Room Tip: The Hideaway is perfect for couples!

We were on a backpacking trip and decided to rest a few days off trail. The room we rented had all amenities we needed. The room was very clean and had several thoughtful touches. Even though the village is a distance on foot from the inn, the owner Gary was more than willing to give us a ride for supplies. He even dropped us off at the trail head when we continued our hike!

Stayed a week in cabin #7 which was newly remodeled and beautifully appointed (vessel sink and great lighting in bathroom! Hardwood floor with area rug! Working wood fireplace!) The grounds are spectacular, the pool spotless and sparkling, lots of flowers in bloom, big trees, shade, and very quiet and private. Some guests had hiked here from the Palm Springs Aerial Tram station. It was cool and pleasant on days when it was well over a hundred down in the desert. Wonderful food options abound in the little village of Idyllwild from simple inexpensive breakfasts to five star gourmet dinners. Great shopping from tchotchkes to fine art. The proprieter is charming and very accommodating; I'm not surprised this is such a clean and well-run inn since I've also stayed at the owners' other property in northern California (Ravenwood in Klamath) where you're also treated to great hospitality. This will be my mountain retreat again and again. Bravo!

Room Tip: Two rooms have full kitchens, Number 4 has a private patio w/ picnic table. All have working wood f...

Hubby and I spent the weekend so we can get out of the desert heat. This was the perfect place. The cabin was remodeled and clean, perfect for the two of us. No kitchen with ours, but that's what we chose. It did have a small fridge and microwave with a few dishes if we had chosen to use it. Fire place, updated bath, porch with bench, grills available, picnic tables and outside chairs. The pool was open and heated.

The property is being kept up. And we had everything we needed. I saw a couple comments about phones in the rooms. Really? Everyone has cell phones and there was great signal. The Inn has WiFi, not strong, but enough to get reviews on the places where we wanted to eat!

The staff is great! We will continue to go back! Don't hesitate, you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: Decide if you want a kitchen. Some have, some don't. Either way.. you can't go wrong.

My husband & I selected this as our getaway for our 28th anniversary. We could not have chosen a better place. The Inn Keeper - Gary, and Robin - the Inn Assistant, were so gracious and helpful with everything. The room (#6 - 1 bed cottage) was cozy and clean and had all the amenities of home.
We will definitely return to the Inn and tell all of our family and friends as well.
Thank You - John & Jennifer H - Anaheim, CA

We stayed in updated room #7. Nice bathroom but could use more water pressure. Floor is wood so take slippers as it is very cold even now in April. The heater works very well though. It had everything we needed, was a stand alone cabin and in the north end of town. Quiet and the manager was very nice and helpful. We would definitely return.

Room Tip: Cabin 7 is great if you do not want an adjoining cabin.
