Operating as usual
How our lives have changed.... in a matter of days! We send good wishes to all of you. We are well and hope you are too!
Very sadly, in light of the Governor’s Stay at Home order, we stopped accepting guests last week. In the spirit of helping each other end this as soon as possible, it is best that we all stay in our homes for now.
Of course, this is extremely challenging for us, as it is for so many. We hope this isolation ends sooner rather than later and we can start seeing all of you again! Please remember us, and all the small businesses around you, who have been closed during this crisis. We hope to have the busiest Summer and Fall seasons ever as our lives return to normal and our guests are able to safely venture out again!
Thank you, take care and stay healthy!
Denise, Colin and Matt

Home sweet home!
It’s wonderful to be back!
So many of you have been so kindly asking how you can help Idyllwild in the aftermath of this fire .
Yes!! We need your help!
Spread the word that Idyllwild escaped harm and is as beautiful as ever! If you, your family or friends would like to help, come visit!!
All Idyllwild businesses, mostly small and family owned, will be hurt by this. Not only from a week’s lost income during our busiest season, but also from many cancellations and fewer visitors in the coming weeks and months. It’s completely understandable.... the public is left with images of fire over our mountain! Their concern leads them to change plans or just not consider Idyllwild for their next getaway. All the while, our village, lodging, restaurants and shops are unchanged.... ready and waiting to serve our guests!
Spread the word and come visit! Eat in a restaurant, buy a little something in a shop, rent one of our Cottages/Cabins or camp!!
We need you and all of Idyllwild will be thankful!
We are on our way back home to beautiful Idyllwild!
Endless thanks to all who worked so hard and risked so much to keep our homes and precious mountain village safe!
Our hearts go out to those who did lose their homes. We will look for ways to help as they move forward.
And thanks to all our Woodland Park Manor friends for all your phone calls, emails, texts and posts filled with thoughts, prayers and kind words over the past days!
We appreciate you all!!
As many of you are aware, we have all been evacuated as the Cranston Fire threatens Idyllwild. As of now, the village is largely untouched and we believe our beautiful Woodland Park is safe! Sadly, a few homes have been lost.
We are so thankful for the firefighters and pray for their safety!
We appreciate all your kind messages and hope to be back home seeing you all again very soon!
The next two weekends we will offer discounted rates and a 3rd night free!
Come spend a few days with us!
