What Past Guests Are Saying
Quiet, cozy, and well stocked
The folks at Quiet Creek Inn sent helpful emails prior to our visit, and were
very friendly and helpful when picking up keys and requesting information
about Idyllwild. The Artist Cottage was great for 2 people - I wouldn't
recommend any more though. It was well stocked with kitchen amenities,
games, books, etc. There wasn't any view to speak of, but the neighborhood
was very quiet and we felt like we had adequate privacy.
We had a great week!
The Quiet Creek staff was pleasant and personable. They provided all we'd
need to know about our rental and the area. The "Artist Cottage" is a small
"Hansel and Gretel" style home, cozy and perfect for 2 people. It's certainly
rustic and has the foibles of an older mountain cabin, but this added to the
character. The location was perfect, far enough from the village and neighbors
to be quiet and pleasant, but easy walking distance from dining, shopping,
and art galleries. The bedroom and bathroom were small but comfortable.
The beautiful stone fireplace and supplemental gas heater made our winter
If you're looking for solitude and self-sufficient quiet comfort, this is a great
Fairy Tale Cottage in the Woods
My husband and I rented the "Artist's Cottage" for a last minute, spontaneous Labor Day weekend motorcycle trip. I did a google search of inn/cabin rentals in Idyllwild and Quiet Creek Inn came up. There were no accommodations left at the Inn proper (which looks very charming, by the way, and is undoubtedly worth a visit itself), but there were several vacation homes available on the website at very reasonable rates. When I called to inquire, Jim the innkeeper suggested I take a look at the web photos and choose the one that most suited us. We picked up the key at the Inn, were given a packet of excellent local info (maps, what to do, where to eat, etc.) and given clear directions to our rental.
When we got there, we were absolutely charmed! A vintage little fairy tale cottage with a stone walled, wood shingled exterior, just like the picture. Small, cozy, tasteful (not over the top) country interior with an enormous native stone fireplace (which we didn't use in the summer heat but would be lovely in the winter). The compact kitchen was fully equipped with everything necessary to make and serve complete meals (even an air popcorn popper and crockpot in the cupboard). We walked to the local market, bought groceries and prepared all our meals, and dined alfresco on the lovely little patio in the front.
The cottage is ideal for a romantic getaway for two, or for a single person wanting a lovely, quiet work or meditative space with wonderful vintage charm. And the innkeeper, Jim, is super helpful. We left an item in the cottage, contacted him when we got back home, and he retrieved it and sent it back immediately. Great customer service from beginning to end.
Idyllwild is a lovely town. We enjoyed the great shops, hiked some great trails in the San Jacinto Wilderness, and well, the Palms-to-Pines Hwy is some of the greatest motorcycling anywhere. Thanks to Quiet Creek Inn, it was made even more memorable.
