Secluded, dog-friendly, studio-guest cabin(250 sq ft), with private access to a unique tiki hut treehouse! Cozy Lodge & Tiki Treehouse of Idyllwild sits down off a private, quiet, unpaved dirt road. The lodge itself is backed up onto a secluded forest corridor. 5 min drive into the heart of Idyllwild. -No Occupancy Tax or pet fees for guests-

The space
There are numerous private "coves" throughout the tiki tree house structure for quiet refuge, a place to read or enjoy a meal -You MUST check this out! In the lodge itself, the room has a queen bed, side tables, vintage Pine Craft lounge chair, large storage dresser, TV (DVD player), electric "Fire Place Stove" heater and air conditioner. The bathroom has a walk in shower, sink-vanity and a "Green" compost toilet....we call it "The Hog". There is also the conveniences of a microwave oven, mini refrigerator, teapot, Keurig coffee maker, as well as snacks, utensils, etc. The view outside the front of Cozy Lodge is our home.
The Mmm Tiki is just a few steps away, where you can spend time relaxing in the tropical, Hawaiian tiki bar and chillin' area. Have some take out food or snack in the beautifully lit sitting area. Hawaiian and lounging music is also supplied. The Mmm Tiki tree house was built by tiki builder legend Bamboo Ben. Enjoy!

Guest access
Cozy Lodge is to the left of our home, down the driveway.
**If you have mobility issues: We have a steep driveway and please read about the compost toilet to be sure this is the right fit for you--the toilet is a bit high and you will need to step up on a provided stool. Also, you must physically be able to turn a crank attached to the toilet.

Again, we have a somewhat steep driveway that curves to the side of the Cozy Lodge. If you don't want to tackle the driveway or if you have a low bottom car, you have access to parking at the top of our driveway as well. Guests have access to the cabin-studio, driveway for parking and walking access, outside forest seating area and front cabin area. Feel free to explore the connecting forest area, with respect. Also, guests have access to the Mmm Tiki tree house, for your tropical pleasure. The tiki structure is quite vast and you can follow its paths and bridges to many secret and tranquil areas for quiet and peaceful refuge.

Winter Season- It is rare that the weather makes our dirt road too difficult to drive, even in a vehicle that is not 4-wheel drive. Since the weather forecast can't be assured until your arrival, we will give "weather updates" if it looks like extreme weather (snow-heavy rain) is arriving. We will communicate to you options and information on how we can help and support you in any way.

Other things to note
CHECK IN: 3:00pm...CHECK OUT: 11:00am.
Please communicate to us your approximate arrival time.
CHECK IN: The Lodge door will be unlocked and the key will be on the key hooks just inside the door. Make yourself at home, check out your surroundings (including tiki tree house). Welcome and enjoy!

CHECK OUT- Please try to leave the lodge they way you first found it. We will take care of the sheets, towels, and trash for you. If there are spills and/or a pet accident, please let us know so we can take care of it right away. Extra cleaning may result in additional fees. Upon your departure, please turn off the heater/AC, leave the door unlocked, and shoot us a text to let us know you have checked out. We hope to see you again! : )

We believe in improving our environment, health and quality of life and The Cozy Lodge of Idyllwild has two components that help us do this!

1. "THE HOG" or the "green" compost toilet. Don't be intimidated by this toilet! Follow the easy to understand directions displayed. If you're not used to how a compost toilet works, PLEASE READ THE TOILET ("The Hog") INSTRUCTIONS POSTED ABOVE THE TOILET. TURN CRANK CLOCKWISE TO THE OPEN POSITION BEFORE GOING TO THE BATHROOM. There will be an odor when in use but if used properly, once in the closed position, turn the fan on, and the electric current will do it's job. If not used properly, the odor will persist. Please contact us right away if you have any questions/concerns regarding "The Hog." Please also note that the electrical current for "The Hog" makes a constant low humming sound...that means it's working. Just shut the bathroom if the sound disturbs you :)

2. SHOWER-HOT WATER- The hot water heater for The Cozy Lodge at Idyllwild only holds 20 gallons, so we recommend a 5 minute shower per person. However, because it's small, it will heat back up again quickly.

DOGS- We love being a "Dog Friendly" accommodation for you! We also know we are taking a chance in that while most of your pups are perfect guests, some may not be the ideal guests and may potty, scratch or leave hair within our lodge. Please be respectful and clean up after your dog (if they are not an "ideal' guest) and also communicate to us if you find your dog has "left their mark" within our lodge. This way we can truly do right to make sure things are appropriate for future guests.
We also have two lovable dogs that may bark "Hello", Gwynny (big) and Snug (little). We do our best to keep them distracted and quiet during your stay.
