The Far Out is a newly renovated Mid Century Modern A-frame cabin nestled in the beautiful woods of Idyllwild in the San Jacinto Mountains. This mountain retreat sits on an acre of land complete a 1200 sq ft wooden deck and hot tub. The sounds of Strawberry Creek can be heard in the background. Set far back from the road, the cabin and the grounds offer a magnificent private space for romantic getaways, family R&R, self reflection and artistic inspiration. Beauty abounds at the The Far Out!

The space
The Far Out Cabin is a stunning mountain retreat providing the best of all that Idyllwild has to offer!

The property is bordered by Strawberry Creek and is shaded by cedar, pine and oak trees, and dotted with boulders. It's a magical setting and a great place for both relaxation and fun! There’s plenty of space to enjoy a game of horseshoe or corn hole... or hang out down by the creek and a have cold mountain water splash in the summer! On a quiet day, it's not uncommon to see deer strolling down the creek bed.

The cabin is located in Fern Valley, Idyllwild’s upscale neighborhood, and is only one mile from the cabin door to the center of town where you'll find plenty of shops, restaurants, a liquor store, grocery store, and much more. It's a wonderful stroll on foot if you decide to walk, and you'll pass the museum on your way!

This A-frame cabin was built in 1962 and is an architectural gem. Towering beams, giant slate stone fireplace, geometric windows and wood cladding make for the quintessential cabin experience.

The open kitchen looks out to the main living area and is well appointed with all essential kitchen supplies and implements. The layout is perfect for cooking delicious meals, and the large curved bar is a great spot for hanging out, having morning coffee or enjoying an evening cocktail.

At the apex of the cabin, the loft offers an expansive view of the great room and fireplace. There are two new memory foam twin beds, each with built-in shelving and reading lights. The loft patio doors lead out to the balcony with breathtaking views of the forest and creek below. Use the retro vanity desk to write a postcard or work on a creative project.

The master bedroom boasts a wall of windows and sliding doors out to the expansive deck. The luxurious king bed with memory foam topper is styled with soft linens and chic textiles. The built-in shelving at the head of the bed offers two bedside bubble lamps for cozying up with a book. The large master closet is fully wood paneled with built-in wooden drawers.

The bathroom has a spacious vanity and original ‘60s lighting and horizontal medicine cabinet. Stand-up shower, vinyl flooring and Turkish towels set the vibe.

The cabin is well curated with Navajo blankets, vintage art and culture, books, records, cool textiles, and special decorative objects from around the world - an impeccably curated mix of mid-century modern, classic cabin, folk art and basecamp chic. 

Enjoy a game night or a movie in front of the fire. Choose among games in the large antique chest or select a movie using the television equipped with Apple TV which includes Netflix, HBO, and Prime.

At The Far Out Cabin, the vibe is just right for a truly relaxing and inspiring trip.

Only well-behaved, house-trained and non-aggressive dogs are allowed on the property. ALL DOGS MUST BE ANNOUNCED AND PET FEE PAID PRIOR TO ARRIVAL. Pet fee is $25 per dog with a 2 dog maximum. Please remember to clean up after your pup!

The expansive deck is everyone’s favorite hang-out spot! The 1200-square-foot deck wraps around the cabin and sits above the creek. The cable railing system lets you enjoy uninterrupted views of the creek and listen to the water flowing over moss-
covered boulders. 

Decked out with a BBQ, dining table, classic Amish-style furniture draped with saddle blankets and San Miguel throws, this is an outdoor experience at its best!

The semi-sunken, 8-person spa is a remarkable place to unwind under the forest trees. Fully equipped with soft-color change lighting, multiple jet programs and headrests, this is the spot to finish your day and enjoy some star gazing.
