“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!”

“A lovely stay last weekend with my husband and our little dog, at Quiet Creek Inn. Beautiful woodsy scenery, blue birds abound, and Strawberry Creek runs through the property. The cabins are well equipped, with a very nice fireplace. The two gentlemen that manage the property are very nice, and one of them conducts a yoga class on the property, which we didn’t partake in. In a little building nearby the cabins, called “the barn”, there are movies VCR and DVD you can borrow, coffee & tea and popcorn you can make, there is a donation jar to leave a dollar if you would like a water from the refrigerator. The city of Idyllwild is quaint, artsy, and very dog-friendly!! Cafe Aroma has wonderful food,and ambience, with a nice art gallery…… We loved our stay in Idyllwild, and would stay at Quiet Creek Inn again in a heartbeat!!!”

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.

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!

My spouse and I went on this trip together just to get away from the city for a couple of days. We sure did pick the right place. Quiet creek inn is placed on a nice little piece of land surrounded by the forest and a small creek. The cabins are very cute and perfect for a couple or even a family depending on what kind of room you get. I love that you have your own deck and small kitchen area. The old school fire place is a great touch too. They even have a barn that has been converted into a two story kind of recreational building. Yoga on the top level which they offer classes for (the woman is an awesome instructor). Then on the bottom of the barn they have a kitchen and sitting room. You can play the piano, rent a movie, read a book or use the computer for some emails. It’s very cool that they offer all that I think. Oh and the staff is so friendly! Wonderful down to earth people. We are planning on going back next winter as well.

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.
