Idyllwild California

July 03, 2022  •  Leave a Comment

So I'm not sure I'd call this an adventure in the sense that it was not some crazy hike off into the wilderness or a week-long trip to one of the National Parks, but it was truly worth an entry into the blog because it was a new and beautiful place.

My Main Squeeze and I were dying for a trip out of town.  We had considered Oceanside or Cardiff-by-the-Sea in California but couldn't find a place to stay on 4th of July weekend, so we ended up looking inland a bit.  We decided to check out Idyllwild and found a wonderful bed and breakfast called The Grand Idyllwild Lodge.  We stayed a few nights and it was just a beautiful setting that I would highly recommend.  It was the middle of summer and the temps up in the San Jacinto mountains didn't get out of the 70s.  The lodge appeared to be a large home that had been converted into a B-n-B.  It only had 8 or so rooms and the views were outstanding.  It was very romantic, peaceful, quiet, and just what we were looking for!

Idyllwild is a tiny community in the mountains west of Palm Springs and WOW, what an idyllic setting.  The mayor of Idyllwild is a dog by the way and has been the mayor since 2013!  We did quite a bit of hiking and exploring the area, and really fell in love with the town.  The restaurants were also converted homes and just the perfect setting for a nice quiet dinner.  Cafe Aroma was our favorite and we practically had the place to ourselves, and on a holiday weekend!

Anyway, here are a few photos of our little mid-summer getaway.  Love this place!!
