    Sandy J from San Diego, CA recommends this vacation rental

    When you go to IDY you want to relax and enjoy the town... and that is exactly what you get staying at the Cricket Mountain Home. This house is on a flat lot close to town center. Very clean inside and out. Not a lot of clutter and everything is staged nicely. Enough room for 6 comfortably to move around the house. The stairs are unique and love the openness in the kitchen for all to gather over a cup of coffee while taking in the morning view of the backyard.
    Very quiet since you are not on a main road to enjoy the backyard to its fullest. many areas to sit, unwind, and just look at the beautiful landscapes while your doggie runs around the yard. The owner provides nuts & bird seed which is a very nice touch.
    We enjoyed the jacuzzi both nights with wine and time to ourselves.
    Very dog friendly to include several dog beds, toys and doggie bags. No need to pack all of your dogs items for the trip, its already there! We were able to hike with our dog on the Ernie Maxwell Trail, so don't leave your puppy at home, IDY is a dog friendly place.
    The management team was very helpful, and the home was spotless. I plan on renting there again because it was perfect!
