“We had a wonderful stay here for two nights in July. Spent one night in a studio and the second night in a suite (suite wasn’t available the first night). The staff could not have been nicer in moving our things to the second room; it wasn’t a problem at all. We loved both rooms — both had fireplaces and roomy balconies. The rooms are simple and spotless and had small kitchenettes. We stayed cool inside despite the heat outside. The evenings are lovely. Be sure to check out the nice hiking trail just up the road. Highly recommend!”

My husband I just got back from a two-day stay at the Quiet Creek Inn. We found this spot through a Living Social deal. We’re so glad we gave it a try! Here’s why:
1) Free continental breakfast one morning (delicious muffins, yogurt, apples, banana, orange juice); Wolfgang Puck coffee and coffee maker in the room.
2) A barn! The barn is a hangout area for guests complete with piano, chess/cheker table, books, and VHS/DVD movies to borrow and play in your own room. The barn also has a stash of packets to make hot cocoa. A fridge is also in the barn stocked with water and sodas for a nominal donation (honors system here!).
3) Attentive staff. We met Jim who gave us tons of great information on the restaurants in town and provided us with maps and guides so we could easily navigate. Each cabin comes with a bottle of wine, but when we mentioned we don’t drink, a bottle of Martinelli’s apple cider appeared on our door step. How sweet is that!
4) The location is definitely quiet–perfect for getting away from the city. It’s fun to explore the creek, take a seat in one of many chairs, benches, or hammocks that are on the property and watch the squirrels and rabbits.
5) Cozy cabins! Each night we had a fire log delivered to our cabin. It was perfect to cuddle up with the fireplace going.
1) WiFi is a bit spotty on the property, but works great in the barn. Cell phone coverage is spotty as well.
2) The heaters in each unit definitely provide warmth, but can be a tad noisy as they crackle and pop.
Overall this was a great experience for us and we would definitely recommend it!

The cabins and grounds are impeccably maintained and the rooms are stocked with thoughful touches. The guest lobby in the ‘barn’ has a great selection of movies, teas, and popcorn to take back to your room. The heaters keep the cabin toasty and when it warms up on the day you can sit on the private deck and feed peanuts to the squirrels. The national park is at the corner, so you can walk to a great days hike and visit the nature center. We loved our stay so much we added a night. We will definitely be back.

Beautiful setting on Strawberry Creek. The cabins are comfortable and quaint. The staff went above and beyond, bringing us items to make eyes and a mouth on our snowman. When our room was serviced the wonderful lady who took care of our room even went as far as to collect our snow gloves and mittens and run them in a dryer. My wife, 9-year-old son and I all loved every minute of it. The location 1 mile from the center of town was great, as well.

The Quiet Creek Inn is a WONDERFUL destination for Idyllwild. My husband and I went here last week for a couple nights as a post-wedding getaway! We got married on New years Eve in San Diego and needed a couple days of R&R, since we are not headed on our honeymoon for a few weeks! And this was the ULTIMATE destination! We stayed in Cabin 6..better known as “Our Cozy Cabin For Two”, that we have missed daily since our return to reality! Mike (owner) is awesome…he was very accommodating and made sure that we had the best time ever and we will never forget his hospitality! You can defiantly walk into town…but more of a morning walk than one on a cold winter night. We are eager for our next visit!! See you soon Quiet Creek Inn! Love, The Freers

If you are interested in fresh air, beautiful stars at night, and a calm environment you will find it at Quiet Creek. The facilities and cabins are very nice, the staff is polite and the nearby town of Idyllwild is very nice. The cabins include a long burning wax/sawdust logs for a real nice fireplace experience. Take peanuts with you as the squirrels will run up to you begging for some.

“Beautiful wedding in Idyillwild!”
We chose to have our wedding in Idyllwild and we researched different Inns located nearby to make sure we chose the right one. We saw plenty of places some too small and others that were not professi0nal at all. We came across Quiet Creek and from the start loved it! They showed us around their facilities and took their time to answer our questions. We rented out the rooms to accomadate both our families and make it a wedding to remember. Everything was pretty inexpensive in comparison to palm springs where we live. Jim kept in touch with us via email to make sure everything was ready for our special day. We got married Novemeber 10th and the weather couldn’t have been any better. It was absolutely gorgeous! There was snow just covering the highest peaks of the mountains and the leaves were all different yellows, oranges, reds and violets.The Quiet creek grounds is a truly beautiful place to stay. There were squirrels everywhere and blue stellars flying around. We were so happy to have both our families stay there with us. We had pizza the night before and got to socialize with everyone below the barn loft where they had a fridge, stove and assortments of coffee, tea, hot chocolate. It felt like a family get together out in the woods away from everything. They were very cooperative and helpful with our wedding. We had our ceremony below the barn loft outside (although a little chilly, still bearable) We had our reception indooors due to colder weather but everything turned out great! All the Quiet creek staff were very nice and pleasant to work with. They keep there rooms clean and tidy. They had service the next morning to refill any amenities we needed. Our wedding was everyting we had hoped for. The Quiet Creek Inn was the best place to have our special day at. We just want to say thank you to Jim and Duffy who helped bartend at our wedding and everyone else at Quiet Creek Inn! This will definitely be our getaway place and forever a special memory in our hearts!

We’ve stayed in the duplex cabins a couple of times and they’re really nice. Since the place is off the beaten track, it is quiet. About the only thing you hear at night is Strawberry Creek. The cabins have patios overlooking the creek that are great for kicking back after a long day of hiking. Another plus for this place is that it’s practically adjacent to Idyllwild County Park. This time of year the oaks, willows, poplars and cottonwoods put on a show.

This was my first time to Idyllwild and have completely fallen in love, with much help from Quiet Creek Inn.
I stayed in cabin #6, which is a one-bedroom king suite with a kitchenette (2-burner stove, small sink and small fridge), and an amazing wrap-around patio. There are walkways from every cabin to the creek, where there are chairs so you can relax in the woods.
Everyone who works here is super kind, and one of them regularly feeds squirrels, which was really sweet to spy. Another cute perk of this inn was the “barn,” which houses a few videos and DVDs you can borrow, a fridge full of soda you can buy for a dollar (on the honor system), a piano, and a bunch of board games.
There are a few campgrounds and hiking trails within walking distance, and the town – which includes restaurants, shops and even a couple of markets – is just a few miles away.
The whole place is relaxing, quiet and peaceful. Idyllwild is about 15 degrees cooler than pretty much anywhere else in SoCal, and during the winter it snows. I just loved it.

What a relief that it was better than expected! We had a lovely suite of a living room with comfortable attractive furniture , a TV and a fireplace; outside we had a large deck with a private corner with chairs for relaxing while facing boulders , birds, tall trees and the Creek. A separate bedroom had a good king size bed and knotted pine ceiling.
Good art and decorative touches. The barn had games, books, and DVDs which we could borrow.
All staff friendly and helpful.
