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 the queen bed and single bed are, and has a fantastic view of the living room below. The Lodge house has a wood paneled kitchen, a bedroom loft and a spacious deck with chairs, tables and barbecue. From its moose decor to its tree branch door handles, this cabin is a real treasure. 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. This cabin sleeps up to three people in perfect rustic comfort with charm to spare.
The Cedar Den cabin has two bedrooms and a complete kitchen with dining room table and chairs for 4 people to have complete family meals.

The living room has a comfortable couch and easy chairs, all positioned to enjoy the fireplace and TV. The Cedar Den also enjoys a tremendous view of our lower patio area in the forest.
The Acorn has a large Terrazzo brick fireplace with a full kitchen and all cooking facilities. If you like cozy nights on a sofa in front of a fireplace, this is your cabin.

The Bear's Bungalow is nestled near the back of the property near our outdoor fountain area.

The Pine Cone is a very charming air conditioned cabin with a large semi-circular fireplace and two overstuffed chairs that sit near the fire so you may enjoy the warmth and glow of the fireplace. It has several unique features such as a dutch door into the kitchen and a writing desk in the alcove between the living room/dining room and the restroom. It also features a classic door latch from the Middle ages, with a drop latch mechanism which is rare to see. But of course, the door also has a state of the art deadbolt for added security.
The Squirrel's Nest features a private patio area where you are free to entertain or enjoy the starlight under the Mt. San Jacinto skies. The Squirrels Nest also has an air conditioner and an adjoining door with the Pine Cone which can be opened creating a suite of rooms with two fireplaces and two beds and two bathrooms, capable of sleeping four if rented with Pine Cone.
With its raccoon theme and its central courtyard location, many consider the Raccoon's Retreat their place to hide away and retreat from the world for a little while. Very quiet and cozy, the Raccoon's Retreat features a river rock fireplace and a kitchenette, as well as a bath tub and shower. It is also our quietest cabin, because it doesn't have a neighboring cabin - it is attached to the office complex.
What better way to enjoy a night than firelight by the bed? Many love this configuration, as it allows for lying in bed and watching the fireplace and TV at the same time. It also has a private, fenced area in the back for a quiet retreat from the hectic pace of city life. Open beam ceilings complete the spacious freedom feeling, with air conditioning available for summer weather.
The Violin House
This wood and stone, mid-century sanctuary sits away from the road, down in the forest, on acres of undeveloped hillside.

Hand built in 1979 by a violin maker (exceptional acoustics) and meticulously renovated, this home provides the surreal experience of complete privacy in nature surrounded by stunning architecture.
The Summer Solstice House
Cantilevered & perched on a protruding boulder at tree level, this is Dennis Mcquire’s first house built on the hill. With clear day views to the edge of LA and the beach near Laguna, this California-Zen sanctuary is a unique architectural gem. The House's prow extends on a direct angle to the summer solstice setting sun. Absolute relaxation in the tree tops. Exquisite architectural details.
