A fixture of the Idyllwild community, the historic Fireside Inn has been welcoming guests since before the Eisenhower administration! The location is prime, once you park the car and check in you can walk to just about anywhere in town! But despite our central location the Fireside is tranquil and quiet.  It sits on x acres and our neighbors are the Catholic Church and the Community Demonstration Garden.  A seasonal creek runs through the property. 

Every room has a kitchenette and a fireplace, of course! Cozy wood paneling and vintage furnishings instantly give you that back in the day feeling.  Rooms are outfitted with down pillows, organic cotton sheets and bath towels, and Malin & Goetz soaps.


In the 1930's, an aqueduct tunnel was created straight through Mt. San Jacinto to the thirsty fields of the Hemet Valley. The gentleman who owned the half acre parcel adjacent to the Fireside Inn was able to acquire the railroad ties after the aqueduct project was completed, and knitted them together to create an extremely quaint and cute cabin. This cabin features an airy living room with a huge, stone fireplace which reaches from floor to ceiling, and even protrudes through the ceiling to form a chimney. It has a loft area where there is a queen bed. The Lodge house has a wood paneled kitchen, a bedroom loft and a wonderful spacious deck. Some Fireside Inn patrons insist on staying at the Lodge House and would rather change their travel plans than miss the opportunity to stay here.
