Secluded Mountain Outpost for Nature Lovers

An ebony cabin tucked into the woods under statuesque pines and fragrant cedars, this natural getaway is just a couple hours’ drive from both LA & San Diego, yet feels like a world away.

Secluded Mountain Outpost for Nature Lovers

An ebony cabin tucked deep in the woods under statuesque pines and fragrant cedars, this cabin for rent in California is a natural getaway and is located just a couple hours' drive from both LA and San Diego, yet feels like a world away. Built alongside one of Idyllwild's legendary rocky outcrops, the woodsy retreat offers immersion in nature, with a cultured yet casual lodge feeling indoors and out.

Standing darkly under a canopy of soaring cedars and pine, this ebony-colored wooden cabin is a nature-lover's paradise. Built around the area's massive boulders, the two-story lodge offers an interior that feels like the best of summer camp vacations, but updated and modernized for grown-ups. Knotty pine covers pitched ceilings and creates the base for the kitchen and living area built-ins. Outdoors, wide decks jut into the forest where bird life and wildlife are abundant.

This cabin for rent in California features three casually appointed bedrooms across two stories, and one and a half baths. Rooms are spacious, yet rustic, with windows that frame the forest. The kitchen features an induction cooktop and is equipped for cooking and assembling, and there's an outdoor gas grill on the deck. The cabin is furnished by prominent names including Alvar Aalto, Roy McMakin, and Enzo Mari, with art by Roy Lichtenstein, Mary Heilmann, and Rodney Graham, giving the rustic walls a surprising artistic allure. 

Below the cabin, a seasonal stream runs along the property that's located at the end of a quiet cul de sac. National Forest and Riverside County Park passes are included with the cabin rental and hiking trails are accessible right outside the door.

AROUND

A picturesque community in the San Jacinto Mountains only about two hours’ drive from Los Angeles and/or San Diego, Idyllwild has long been a refuge for nature lovers seeking solace in the woods. Pine and cedar forests cover the land, and massive boulders create dramatic outcroppings on the forest floor. Rock climbers, mountain bikers, hikers, and fishermen flock to the area for abundant recreation opportunities, and the town of Idyllwild itself offers a small, mountain town feeling with quaint shops, charming cafes and farm stand markets, and multiple guide and wellness services. 

The communities of Pine Grove and Fern Valley stretch out within the same woods, and Palm Springs is perhaps the nearest urban setting, though Idyllwild is a destination for those seeking a natural retreat away from the hustle and bustle of the big cities.
