The Creekstone, a fun and stylish modern twist on a historic mountain lodge, opened today in Idyllwild, California. Originally built in 1947, The Creekstone is a playful modern redesign of a vintage gem. Nestled in the serene wooded mountain landscape of Idyllwild, the fully renovated hotel features nine chic guest suites and a gorgeous great room that combines an original rustic fireplace with fabulous and eclectic furnishings.
The hotel’s storybook-inspired architecture dates back to when the building was originally an Alpine-style market, but from the moment guests enter the building’s lively, social space, they will know that they have found the best of Idyllwild. Everything inside has been completely reconceptualized. The hotel’s management team, Elevation Property Management, Inc., partnered with H3K Home & Design of Palm Springs, who furnished each room with fresh, modern décor unlike any hotel in the area. With fusions of organic textures and statement pieces, it is a bold and impeccably designed boutique hotel bringing hipness to the mountain.
TheCreekstone-guestroomThe meticulously curated guest suites feature understated furnishings, including over-sized black and white plaid lounge chairs, a bed decked out in luxuriously soft linens, and some cheeky artwork. Most of the pristine rooms include unique custom electric fireplaces that can be programed to display in a variety of colors. The generously sized bathrooms feature modern touches, including contemporary subway tiles, oversized sinks, rustic furnishings, and include custom organic bath amenities.
“Just two hours from Los Angeles, the Creekstone is a perfect getaway (romantic or otherwise!) for creative types, brimming with swanky style and carefree comfort,” said hotelier Amy Brinkman. “With galleries, boutiques, and some great restaurants, Idyllwild now has a hotel that measures up! In this era of VRBO, hoteliers need to provide much more than a place to lay one’s head. We hope the depth of our passion for the place comes through and we’re thrilled with how it’s evolved. We’ve set a new standard for Idyllwild lodging.”
Brinkman envisions an “affluent, artistic, creative” clientele. “We created this space to be a warm and inviting modern mountain retreat that blends comfort with style. Our cozy haven can be your vibrant yet chill escape in the majestic mountains of Idyllwild.” The great room’s furnishings are an eclectic mix of leather lounging couches and sharp black & white gingham chairs, coupled with burl wood end tables.
Sometime after opening The Creekstone will begin hosting live music, pouring cocktails, and open a high-end steakhouse called The Red Door. Meanwhile, patrons will have no shortage of quality food options in the vicinity.
