Escape the cluster and grime of city living, and frolic with nature amongst the ancient pines in this beautiful, mountain village town aptly named Idyllwild. This is truly an outdoor enthusiast’s paradise where you’re minutes away from the many grand outdoor adventures that await you.

This charming property sits in a very tranquil neighborhood with few cars ever traveling down the paved street. This property is a special one to our family; we have visited it many times and have experienced the serenity first hand over and over again. It’s in a coveted part of town known as Fern Valley, conveniently located just a few miles from the Village Center. You can easily ride your bicycle into the village, or if you pedal in the opposite direction just a few short miles, you’ll find yourself deep in nature at Humber Park. Here is where you’ll find the trailhead to Tahquitz!

Both municipal water and electrical lines run along the property line and paved road, so it should be an easy process to get connected without paying for any extra extension costs. This property will require a septic or alternative sewer system. There are no HOA fees here, and the town takes care of plowing the streets in the winter. There is a small, seasonal stream that runs along the edge of the property. And this lot has trees! Which means that for the right savvy buyer, you may be able to recoup your purchase price, and make an additional profit, just by selling the trees off to a local lumber yard!

Reserve this lot now for as little as $999 down before someone else grabs this significantly discounted opportunity!

“Just another Idyllwild sunset” original photo by Tabitha Robb

Idyllwild is a mile high paradise nestled in between the ancient pines of the San Jacinto Mountains of Southern California, lying mostly within a high, mountain valley bisected by a small, year-round stream called Strawberry Creek. Legendary granite ridges and domes forested with sugar pine, ponderosa, Jeffrey pine, incense cedar, white fir, lodgepole pine, limber pine, chinquapin, and black oak. At an elevation above 5,000 feet, the weather is mild and far cooler than the surrounding areas. One of the few places in Southern California to truly experience all four seasons!

The town and community has kept its “small town” atmosphere since its origins. Locally owned shops and restaurants are all you will find here! It’s all conveniently located in the charming Village Center. And Idyllwild is small enough that wherever you stay, you’ll be close to nature.

The big draw is Mother Nature and her abundant, all-season offerings to every outdoor enthusiast. With a peak as high as 10,804 feet high, San Jacinto State Park is where you can explore more than 50 forest trails. Rent bikes in town for a leisurely ride on flat trails or more rugged terrain; both options widely available. Rock climbers can scale the sacred Tahquitz. For those less experienced, sign up for rock-climbing school or try bouldering on the smaller rocks. Hike through many of the forest trails that will take you by mountain streams and lead you to peaks with views of the Coachella Valley below. Less than 10 miles away is the glistening lake called Lake Hemet, where you can have a beach day, take a leisurely kayak ride, go fishing with the kids or your buddies, take your dogs for a hike, or have a picnic at one of their many picnic tables. And in the winter, when there’s snow on the ground, there’s cross-country skiing, sledding, snowshoeing, building snow people, and so much more!

If you are ready to get away from the traffic jams and the noisy city life, this is the town for you! Come and experience the peace and quiet that Idyllwild will provide to you and your family.
