Idyllwild-Pine Cove history:

George B. Hannahs and his wife, Sarah came to Strawberry Valley in 1889 and built a sawmill on upper Dutch Flat. In the summer of the next year, 1890, they opened a "resort" on a forested bench west of Strawberry Creek. The name they chose was Camp Idylwilde. The location of this tent resort was about where the Idyllwild tree monument now stands in the middle of town. Now long afterward, George, never content to be idle, opened a general store in the lower Strawberry valley. March 3rd, 1893, saw the opening of a post office in Idyllwild. It was at the Hannah's store. George was the first postmaster. George and Sarah decided to name the store and the post office Rayneta. Their young son was named Raymond.

Dr. Walter Lindley, a physician from Los Angeles, and several other doctors announced plans to build a sanatorium here. They built a large, two story building and called it the Idyllwild Sanatorium. It opened in June 1901. Ralph Lowe was manager and Charles Rutledge as bookkeeper and secretary. At some point, probably around the time of the post office change in June of 1901, the name of the Rayneta post office was changed to Idyllwild. The e was dropped from the name of Idyllwild. Some people believe the town was named by Laura Rutledge in 1901 when the name change occurred, but facts show that the Hannahs used the name first in the summer of 1890.

Whether it's an elegant, Victorian Inn, beautiful and unique bed & breakfast, mountain lodge, private cabin, cozy motel room or a single or group campsite, there's a place just for you.
