We appreciate and enjoyed the decor of this charming Inn. The food was excellent and the owner welcoming and friendly.

Great little getaway!

We really enjoyed our short stay at this B&B. The host was very friendly and we enjoyed the use of the common area in the evening when we came back from dinner in town. There's a chicken coop full of feathered beauties and a little path down to the creek.It's not super quiet as it is right off the main road and can be quite loud when you're relaxing in the beautiful hammocks they have provided under the trees. The rooms are behind the main building though so the rooms are quiet. The breakfast in the morning is absolutely delicious and we enjoyed the appetizers in the evening while we were paying board games (provided) and looking through the large library of books. It's close to town and hiking trails as well.It's an all together very charming place and a great getaway from Los Angeles if you only have a day or two. This was my first visit to Idyllwild so I don't have any other B&B's to compare it to but I felt like we picked a good one!

Great Place to Stay

We stayed in the cottage, and it was super charming and kitschy, just like we were hoping. Lovely grounds, nice hosts. Definitely recommend!

Just perfect

This was our second stay at Strawberry Creek, the first one being our honeymoon. My wife and I fell in love with Strawberry Creek and Idyllwild and had to return. We stayed in the Gentlemen's Retreat which had been newly remodeled and it was fantastic. The room was clean with immaculate attention to detail in the theming. We could have stayed for a month. The food at Strawberry Creek was, as last time, delicious. They were very sensitive to our dietary restrictions (my wife is a celiac and we're both vegetarians), and the food did not suffer as a result. It's a great way to start the day and meet the other guests. The rest of the property is relaxing. We spent some time in town, but we also spent a lot of time just reading and writing in the hammock, in the gazebo, and next to chicken coop. The air is fresh and invigorating. We will be back again.

Love this place and the hosts

The minute my boyfriend and I arrived we felt the comfort and beauty of the inn. We stayed in the Country Gentleman room and were brought back in time and thoroughly enjoyed the array of classic books in the room. The food was delicious and the location was amazing...we could walk into town and along the creek. We will definitely come back!

Wonderful B&B
