Julian cabin description

Black Oak Cabin is located 1/2 mile east of the Julian town site in the Whispering Pines neighborhood. It is situated on a beautiful slope of black oak, pine, and cypress trees and sports a spacious front porch for relaxing and listening to the occasional evening frog and cricket concerts. A rear brick patio houses the gas BBQ and table/chairs for dining al fresco. On the hillside above is a swing for leaving all your cares behind.

Our elevated location in the San Diego County Mountains provides us with all four seasons; snow in the winter and early spring, lilacs, daffodils, and April showers in the spring, sunny, warm clear days in the summer (leave the May gray and June gloom behind!), and the beautiful golds and bronzes for the trees in the autumn.

Many birds and other wildlife call us home, the wild turkeys are the most fun when the mom's are visiting with their chicks! The side garden has two chaise lounges for stargazing and some perennial herbs for your culinary enjoyment as well as roses, and seasonal bulb flowers to adorn your dining table.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2003

              About the owner: Your hosts, Ed & Dawn, moved to Julian in 1999 from Silicon Valley to purchase a B & B and we thoroughly enjoy being innkeepers! We are active in the community though the Chamber of Commerce and Merchant's Association.

              Why the Owner Chose Julian:
              We purchased Black Oak Cabin in 2003. It is proximate to our home and business and we feel we're able to better manage the property and attend to the needs of our guests while affording them the privacy they seek. It's a quick drive or a 20 minute walk to downtown Julian. There are great hiking trails, picnicing, and Lake Cuyamaca is a mere 20 minute drive away.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              Black Oak Cabin is situated on a gently sloping, wooded hillside. We've planted (and continue to plant) gardens for your relaxing pleasure and outfitted them with swings, chaise lounges, and picnic tables. Birds abound during the day, including the wild turkeys, and many nights you are serenaded by the local 'chorus frogs'. Julian sees all four seasons, including some snow in the winter, and some amazingly clear nights for stargazing...the Milky Way is still up there! The Chamber of Commerce, Merchant's Association, and numerous other groups host a variety of events throughout the year including music, art, theatre, sports for the pleasure of the locals and visitors alike.
