Perfect Getaway to Idyllybrook Gazebo Under 2 Hours From Orange County

Idyllbrook Gazebo Steps to Strawberry Creek & Indoor Outdoor Relaxation!

 
In love with this cabin.. yes I wrote indoor outdoor!
 
Experience Idyllwild has some amazing hidden gems to vacation in.
 

 
Idyllbrook Gazebo Cabin offers a lovely two in one. What do I mean by that?!
 
You can experience the wonders of vacationing in a home away from home cabin or you can walk steps down to the gazebo creek side and listen to the brook stream down from the outdoor indoor gazebo.
 

 
Experience Idyllwild does such an amazing job with each of their properties offering a unique individual feel to each cabin. Look at this kitchen!
 

 
My family was in awe over how peaceful and safe we felt outdoors in nature with just all sorts of wildlife around us.
 
Let's back up a bit...

I can not say enough about how at home we felt at Idyllbrook Gazebo Cabin!
 
From the space for all of us to everything we need to cook a meal too. It's perfect for spending as much time inside as you want to.
 
This level of comfy is great for sensory and autism. Space to give personal time as well as quiet as it needs to be.
 

 
We like to cook while in Idyllwild our main meals and adventure out from morning to evening.
 
There are passes for you to use while staying for the state parks!
 

 
Use them and explore, we do each time. Come back hungry and relax.
 
There's a BBQ outside with patio furniture so that one can overlook the creek and the gazebo or my wild children playing!
 

 
It was so much fun to just watch my kids play after breakfast in the gazebo while listening to the most beautiful birds sing.
 
You can check out my video of the cabin here... don't mind the beds undone.. we had the best nights sleep and I wanted one more tour of the cabin.
 
You can also see my Insta stories of our first look walk in and experience here.
 
Steps down a lit stairway you find yourself in the midst of Idyllwild's beautiful scenery.
 

 
I can not even describe the wondrous feeling of fresh air and clear skies, so I'm including pics and you can also click here to see more of the surrounding area.
 
The gazebo itself is pure relaxation. You can hear the stream from the babbling brook... no, seriously, you can!
 

 
There's connections for music and outlets as needed. We loved listening to some jams while playing board games at breakfast.
 

 
In the evening it gets dark, like pitch black dark. There is a lit pathway of course but we turned the lights off and sat for a moment. It was so quiet I could hear myself breathe! Every sound can be heard it is really something special to sit in the gazebo in the middle of it all.
 
The kids could not get enough of playing around the hammock and gazebo. Running up and down and in and out they had a blast exploring.
 
In the evening we were even greeted by a random cabin cat. He had bobcat like features but of course he was just the sweetest.
 

 
We watched him catch a bird and a lizard and my daughter was just amazed at how wild savvy this sweet cat was.
 
I mean between hiking in Idyllwild National Park, exploring the town we have loved for over 35 years, spending quality family time in nature and finding an awesome cabin cat... who could ask for more!?
 

 
We didn't want to leave, we never do! Good thing that Idyllwild is under 2 hours from Orange County...
 

 
Once again Experience Idyllwild has completely exceeded our expectations of cabin glamping... the home away from home but not at home feeling is the best!
