Welcome back springtime! It's another season of Weekend Getaways, where we look at homes within driving distance (or maybe a little further) of Los Angeles that are on the market for you to ogle, then buy.
Location: 24640 Upper Rim Rock Road, Idyllwild
Size: 3,200 sq.ft. on 7,405 sq. ft. lot
Fresh mountain air is what we need every once in awhile. This lovely mountain cabin, built in 1972, features views of Suicide Rock and Strawberry Creek -- perfect for our uncontrollable mood swings. The four bedroom, two and one-half bath home last sold in 2005 for $565k and has, according to the listing, undergone extensive remodeling in the last few years. From the listing: "This rustic hideaway features a gated front courtyard with beautiful stone paths and steps, and professional landscaping, while the rear of the home opens onto large, redwood multi-level decks, with stairs cascading down to the creek between granite boulders."
