Quiet retreats are abundant here, from inviting hammocks to restful Adirondack chairs along Strawberry Creek, and private decks for interacting with and observing the wildlife. Laid-back innkeepers share their favorite trails—a path right behind the lodge leads to a series of easy-to-moderate hikes with excellent views—plus tips for exploring nearby Idyllwild.
Outside, storybook cabins nestle by the creek. Inside, it’s all about contemporary, luxe-level pampering, with premium mattresses and linens, cable HDTVs/DVD players and stone fireplaces with clean-burning logs. Just steps away, a 24-hour guest 'Barn' lounge offers free popcorn, puzzles and games.
Nature with nurture included
Pets are allowed in some cabins (fee), and the inn provides blankets, towels and food mats. But be prepared: pets can’t be left unattended indoors or out, so bring a crate from home.
While there are no on-site restaurants, nearby Idyllwild has food markets and a range of dining options within walking distance.
Quiet Creek Inn offers a peaceful vacation off the grid with picturesque settings for weddings and special events.
