Idyllwild knows a thing or two about vacationing. This mile-high town about two hours east of both San Diego and Los Angeles was once the summer getaway of choice, a sort of cool down, for bands of Cahuilla Indians who inhabited the hotter climes of the nearby desert.

It's still the chilled-out retreat it's always been, with rustic sensibilities and a focus on green living, and this Escape puts you in the heart of it all at the Quiet Creek Inn. You'll get a two-night stay for two in a studio, Sundays through Thursdays ($199) or Fridays and Saturdays ($239).

And to help you truly embrace the spirit of Idyllwild, your hosts are including a one-hour yoga class for two, a $25 credit toward a one-hour massage, a welcome bottle of champagne, and a continental breakfast basket sent to your room on one morning of your choosing.

Set on the banks of Strawberry Creek and surrounded by evergreen forest, the cabin-style accommodations at Quiet Creek Inn, once the site of a Native campground itself, are basic on the outside and homey on the inside, appointed with a queen bed; a private 3/4 bath; a fireplace; a kitchenette equipped with mini-fridge, microwave, coffee maker, and toaster; cable TV with DVD; and Wi-Fi.

Offered Saturdays at 9 a.m. or Mondays and Thursdays at 4 p.m., your hour-long yoga class at Quiet Creek's Spa Casa is taught by Luciana LoPresto, a 22-year veteran of the yogic arts. Center your chi, then set out to explore Idyllwild. Hiking, biking, and fishing are popular in fall and spring, as is rock climbing, while winter often means curling up by the fireplace with a good book and watching the snow fall gently outside. Back at Spa Casa, put your $25 credit toward an hour-long massage.

While it's not the skiing mecca of Big Bear or the pool-and-cocktail affair that Palm Springs is, Idyllwild has its own charms—scant crowds, a nature-centered vibe—that lure peace-seekers. In fact, it comes as no surprise that about three-quarters of its residences are dedicated vacation homes. Find yourself there with a trip to to the aptly named Quiet Creek Inn.

  • "The hosts Mike and Jim are fantastic! They are exceptionally kind and have thought of everything to make your stay enjoyable. The cabins feature rustic décor but are exceptionally well appointed."
