The Destination
The Cahuilla Indians were onto something special. Long before Idyllwild was included in the Great Towns of Southern California guidebook, this low-key high-alpine resort for in-the-know Angelenos was the vacation home for bands of Cahuilla Indians, who sought the higher elevation to escape the heat of the desert floor. Think of Idyllwild—also known as the Yosemite of the South—as California's original getaway town.

The Digs
About two hours southeast of Los Angeles, the 18-room Strawberry Creek Bunkhouse boasts a boutique, mountainous vibe while catering to modern sensibilities. Each forest-view room is equipped with a kitchenette, Wi-Fi, cable TV, Barista Bath & Body bath amenities, and a private balcony overlooking the towering pines of the San Jacinto Mountains. Kick off each morning with a breakfast basket delivered to your door, chock-full of fresh-baked scones and homemade lemon curd, fresh fruit, gourmet oatmeal packets, and 100-percent fruit juice.

The Diversions
• Explore an under-the-radar wine region with two glasses of house wine at Idyll Awhile Wine Shoppe Bistro
• Start your meal at La Bella Montagna Pasta House with a complimentary bruschetta appetizer
• Bike the 17-mile Ramona Trail by using your included $25 bicycle-rental credit at Hub Cyclery
• Fish the pristine waters of Lake Fulmor

  • "With the pristine mountain décor and warmth of the bunkhouse's hostess, fresh breakfast, high ceilings in the small rooms and the larger cabins, the lodge gives a big bang for the buck."
