Policies

There is no minimum stay!
Fern Valley Inn has traditionally been one of the few places in Idyllwild that does not force guests a minimum stay of two, three or even four nights. The reason Marcie and I are living here is because of this tradition. We know a lot of people must go back to work on Monday morning and getting here late through Friday night traffic can be very frustrating. Having said that, our costs have risen significantly this past year. The Cranston fire caused our insurance to skyrocket. Property taxes, housekeeping rates and utilities have all gone up. We will maintain the "no minimum stay" policy benefit. So effective January 2, 2019, we will be implementing a cleaning fee of $35.00 for those guests who can visit here for only one night. This fee will not apply for those staying two or more nights. We hope this change doesn't affect your time up here with us. Fern Valley Inn and Idyllwild is a wonderful place for a retreat from the hustle "down the hill".
Thank you for your understanding,
Gary & Marcie Erb
