More information
The space

This is a truly unique mountain home for travelers who want to experience the spirit of a bygone age. Built in 1927 by a handyman from nearby Yucaipa, the cabin is a rustic retreat. Created before the age of air conditioning, flatlanders would escape the hot summers by dashing to their cozy mountain cabins that they built themselves. Welcome to ours!

Ample parking for two cars can be found in the driveway leading uphill to the cabin. The main entrance is up a short flight of steps but there is also a side entrance off the breakfast nook with no steps.

The living room is unusually spacious for this era and features a hand-built stone hearth with a classic river rock fireplace. (No fires or candles please.) The electric reclining chair is the best seat in the house, but the "L" shaped couch is a comfy place to snooze or sleep the night.

The mini kitchen hosts a propane range and oven, a new refrigerator and microwave. A new toaster is where we do most of our cooking. Everything you need is available to cook your gourmet meals.

The breakfast nook is delightful in the morning with a huge window view straight up the mountain. Don't forget a hot cup of coffee from our coffee maker or French press. There is also tea and an electric kettle.

The bathroom has a quant clawfoot shower-tub and pedestal sink, and of course, all bathroom amenities are included for your comfort.

The cabin features a main bedroom on the first floor, which holds a cozy full-size bed for two, topped with a snuggle-down quilt cover. The bedroom door shuts with a "do not disturb sign" for your added privacy!

There is a screened-in porch off the living room with a cozy kids bunk bed. (Two twin Zinus mattresses. See photos.)

The door off the front porch will lead you to the large outside elevated deck. Patio furniture is provided for your bird watching, reading, card games, and relaxing.

The mountain air is clear and refreshing. The tap water is cold, clear, and pure from our community owned springs and wells. Drink deep! Enjoy a few days to recharge your personal battery!

Guest access

You will have complete access to the entire property except the locked storage garage below and the locked attic space above.

Interaction with guests

We want you to have a 5-star visit! We value your privacy, but we are available by email, text, and emergency phone 24/7 for your convenience.

Other things to note

Don't forget your favorite pal Fido! Dogs are always welcome. However, we do ask guests to pay an added fee of $50 per stay. (Two dog maximum. No cats, please.) This is for the additional cleaning necessary after you leave. We recommend that you bring his/her favorite bed or blanket. It calms your pet and helps us keep the fee as low as possible. Please do not allow your pet to be on the beds or couches. Never leave your dog unattended in the cabin, even for a moment. Fees for damages or carpet cleaning due to potty accidents start at $250. Thank you.

Unfortunately, we can't accept cats. There are simply too many people who are allergic, including members of our personal family.

Fill your water bottles from the kitchen sink! Forest Falls public water company is share-owned by the community landowners. We source it from local mountain springs and wells and it conforms to the highest federal and state standards. It's cold and refreshing. You will agree that it's better than any city water around! Take a gallon home!

Check-in time is 3 pm, and check out is 11 am. If the calendar is open, you can add a block of four hours before or after the standard stay for a modest charge.

You will notice "Ring" doorbells on the front and back door to the cabin. These are security cameras and are there for your safety and security. Tampering with, or attempting to disable them is against the house rules and you may be asked to leave. We value your privacy at all times.

Please do not put any biologicals down the sinks. (No food waste or coffee grounds.) The sewer is septic, so please only human waste and minimal toilet paper in the toilet.

Please take ALL trash with you when you leave. This is a county requirement. Trash bags are provided. You will be charged $20 per bag if you leave them behind. Forest Falls does not have a garbage pick-up service. Thank you.

We would like to be a quiet mountain community. Please, NO LOUD PARTIES ALLOWED, and quiet after 10 pm.

We are in extreme forest fire country. Please, no open flames. No smoking. No fires. No candles. No charcoal. The fireplace does not work. It will fill the room with smoke. Do not use.

Please note: Pet cleaning fee is $50 per stay. Two dogs maximum.
Please walk your dog regularly and kindly use your pooper-scooper.

Please be very careful on the stairs, steps, ladders, and decking. Naturally, you take full responsibility for your safety. Keep your children or elder hosts safe. The cabin is not suitable for unattended children. We sincerely care for you and do not want you to get hurt.
We have thoroughly cleaned and sanitized the cabin before your arrival. Remember however that you are in a rustic mountain environment. An occasional spider, mosquito, bug, and a little dust may blow in. Enjoy the wilderness. :)

Forest Falls does indeed get snow in the winter. (Elevation 5,700 feet) The snow can be heavy at times. The CHP will turn you around if you do not have tire chains. Snow tires are not enough. My cabin can be a fun adventure when you are snowed in, but I cannot be responsible for snow removal. I supply snow shovels for your use. You may need to dig yourself out or clear the driveway before you can pull in. I am not responsible for any damages, and you are responsible for any damages to the property. The main street is plowed by the county, but the steep driveway is not. DO NOT PARK ON THE STREET. YOU WILL BE TOWED AND FINED. There is no cancelation on account of weather. If you love adventure, you will love my cabin in the winter!
Standard Disclaimer:

The renter(s) also hereby agree to INDEMNIFY, DEFEND AND HOLD the owners HARMLESS from any and all claims, actions, suits, procedures, costs, expenses, damages and liabilities including, but not limited to, attorney’s fees, arising from, or in any way related to rental of cabin, except for those arising out of the willful misconduct, gross negligence or intentional torts of the above parties, as applicable.
