My partner and I had a lovely anniversary weekend in Idyllwild at the Quiet Creek Inn. We had a King Suite: the king bed was in a separate bedroom, the living room had a fireplace and mini kitchen set up, and the balcony was private with great views of the various critters that scamper around the pines. We especially appreciated that the suite was very clean, cozy, comfortable, and tastefully decorated (not my style, but the plaid, cabin-y feel is appropriate).
Jim and Mike are expert proprietors. They offer beverages and games in the barn, two fire logs per day, wine in the living room, use of the gym in town, use of their state parks adventure pass, etc. Generous details like those made us feel well taken care of. Jim and Mike also have a wealth of information about hiking, eating, shopping, and sight-seeing: their knowledge made our trip extra special.
