A Trip to Idyllwild, CA  We've been to the artsy mountain town of Idyllwild CA a couple of time (most recently last year) to enjoy some hiking, beautiful mountain views, and their popular down town area with abundant shopping (OK some of it kinda touristy), art galleries, antique shops, and a variety of popular places to eat, some with live music in the evenings (the jazz at the Italian place our first night was first rate!). Sometimes it's fun to get away from our beautiful coast and see some other gorgeous areas of Southern California! I spied this interesting combination when strolling the streets on our first day. I am not a fan of jerky in any form, even Ostrich which I've seen, plus it was just after breakfast, so we did not investigate further. I wonder if they had Jerky Ice Crea...

Excellence Up Close and Personal You might be thinking this is about the Olympics. But it's not. We just spent a long weekend in Idyllwild, a mountain town about 2 hours from Carlsbad filled with art, music, good restaurants, and an alpine feel, at over 5000 feet above sea level and a haven for hikers and those who love the outdoors! We had two terrific dinners, but our best experience, Saturday night, was at Fratello's in the downtown area.  It was a beautiful warm evening, with a lively crowd, and a terrific jazz band ("Umlimited") on the outdoor patio. We were treated to wonderful music and, now and then, the opportunity to witness their very talented saxophone player up close and personal - he liked to wander and entertain the tables close by, and we had the benefit of watching some...

Idyllwild California Idyllwild is a small town in the San Jacinto mountains perhaps 2 hours from Carlsbad. It's rather small with lots of locally owned businesses, restaurants and galleries, as well as being a haven for hikers and rock climbers of all levels, from newbies to highly experienced, because of the mountains and numerous trails.  We spent a weekend there 9 years ago to explore this artsy town, do a little hiking, and simply relax. Suicide Rock (below) is a popular hike for those with moderate experience and stamina. Needless to say, we just enjoyed the views and the thought of climbing, rather than the reality!

FHA 203k loan - what is it? The FHA 203k loan guarantee program for renovating your home or a new purchase The FHA 203k loan guarantee program is a standard FHA loan (203b) with an additional “construction” component. That is to say you can purchase or refinance a property and get the money to renovate the property all in one low interest loan. The lender actually loans their own money with a guaranteed from FHA that the loan will be paid in full under the terms of the loan or FHA will pay off the loan and take the property back. The unique thing about this loan program is that it includes low interest, fixed interest. and money for the renovation all in one 30-year, fixed rate mortgage. What amount of repairs are available? Up to the maximum mortgage limits for your county. I don’t kno...

       Only the Garden of Eden could be more beautiful than the mountains of Idyllwild California. Gold can still be found in them thar hills maybe not the kind that you spend, but certainly the kinds that make you feel rich. The sights are magnificent this time of year.                         Even the bears can't resist taking in all the beauty Idyllwild has to offer.                       The people that live here get to take in this beauty every day. Wouldn't it be nice to call this home?                       Many artists do call this home. This artists' web-site is easy to find.                                     At 6000 ft you'll feel like you are on top of the world.                           If you or someone you know has a desire to view propertys in Idyllwild please feel fre...

I spent part of the weekend in Idyllwild, an arts town in the Santa Rosa Mountains, about 90 miles inland. The town is also known for offering some of the best hiking around (next time, perhaps).   These photos are of Suicide Rock, as seen from Humber Park, the start of one of the more difficult trails in the area. While we didn't see any, this peak is a popular rock climbing challenge. I posted an article about Idyllwild on my Fans of Coastal San Diego blog if you are interested in reading more about this cool town. Idyllwild is less than 3 hours from Carlsbad, so while you could do a day trip, it is worth staying overnight to enjoy all there is to do there. There is lots to do, with numerous shops, galleries and restaurants, in addition to all the outdoor activities that are availabl...

Idyllwild Business Guide Courtesy of Mission Grove Realty (951) 927-8940Here you will find a listing of restaurants in Idyllwild, California. Nestled in the San Jacinto Mountains, Idyllwild is a fantastic destination to get away from it all. One of Southern California's gems, Idyllwild remains unspoiled.  I recommend a visit anytime throughout the year. If you are looking for ski slopes, a party on the lake or holiday reveling, this is not the place! If you are looking for rest, relaxation and a wonderful weekend getaway, Idyllwild is the place to be.  This is a laid back community which has been a haven for artists, musicians and celebrities that want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the big city. When visiting Idyllwild, make sure to experience one of these great restaurants....
