Julian cottage description

Enjoy this charming cottage located in a quiet, wooded neighborhood two miles east of Julian's historic township. Our vacation home sits on a spacious, corner lot that has a circular driveway and many mature oak, pine, and cedar trees.

The interior of Cathleen's Country Cottage includes newer hardwood flooring throughout the bedroom, kitchen, dining and living room areas. Many of the cottage's original 1924 windows overlook our fruit tree orchard. It is attractively furnished with new, comfortable pieces that include a queen-size bed in the bedroom, two full-size sleeping futons in the living room, and new dining furniture in the country style. We provide firewood for the living room's wood-burning stove. Our cheerful kitchen is equipped with dishes, flatware, and cooking ware. This cottage has air-conditioning, electric heating in each living area and ceiling fans. We provide wireless Internet service and satellite television.

This vacation home has large, secure kennels for outdoor pets. Pets may stay with prior approval of the owner.

There is plenty of private parking on the property that includes space for recreational vehicles.

You can use the roomy front deck for outside dining, barbecuing, star-gazing, bird-watching, and waving to friendly neighbors who are taking their daily strolls or riding their bicycles. Our trees house many birds, and capture the sounds of beautiful, mountain breezes. You may be visited by our animal neighbors that include turkeys, raccoons, deer, bobcats, and foxes.

This is a great getaway cottage where you can relax and feel that you are really on vacation!

                Just what we wanted...peace and quiet and relaxation. Cabin was nice and clean and comfortable for us and our dogs. The barbecue on the patio was a nice addition and we enjoyed cooking some steaks for dinner. The neighborhood is friendly. The neighbor was doing some lawn work and saw me reading on the patio. He apologized and said he would be done in 5 minutes. Very considerate to think he was disrupting my peaceful read. The owner is very friendly and informative. If you go, use her driving directions. Mapquest will head you off the path and onto a dirt path.

                Owner response: Thank you for submitting a review that clearly reflects the peaceful quality of our cottage and surrounding area. We are blessed to be in a beautiful neighborhood with thoughtful and friendly neighbors.

                Had very pleasant stay at Cathleen's Country Cottage. It is quaint,spacious,clean,well stocked, has lots of natural light in a quiet friendly neighborhood. Patio is a nice place for enjoying morning coffee etc, reading or just relaxing and taking in the nature. Nada Cathleen is a lovely lady and great hostess wanting to make sure needs met. Easy to contact and quick to respond to emails and phone calls for questions and getting and giving information. Was great having the fenced area for our dog and he loved the freedom to roam without leash. Area is great for walks and there is a view point to the desert nearby. Loved the location and easy drive to town. Thank you Nada for providing your country cottage for a pleasant get away :)

                We had the BEST time at this cottage. It was perfect !! Location was fantastic. Close to town, yet far enough to feel a bit secluded. Our dogs had a blast. The yard is perfect for them to sniff and play fetch. We took long walks. The neighbors were so sweet. Our toddler loved the fruit trees and yard as well. The place is amazing. Nada was soooo helpful. She called to make sure we got there OK and everything was to our liking. She is a perfect "hostess". Run, don't walk to this cottage. You will not regret it.

                Owner response: Thank you for writing a great guest review that clearly reflects the beautiful qualities of this cottage, property, and neighborhood. Our cottage is located in a wooded, residential neighborhood that is conveniently close to town. It is surrounded by many trees that provide privacy and natural beauty. Nature lovers and artists enjoy our wildlife, including migrating birds, wild turkeys, and deer. We encourage our visitors to bring their cameras!

                Love this place! My husband, little daughter and I love going to Julian about 5-10 times a year for fun little day trips to just get away from the city, but this year for my birthday we wanted to actually stay a whole week. After looking at all the listings for places to stay, we chose Cathleen's Country Cottage because it had everything we were looking for- a cozy,quiet place nestled amonst the trees, a woodburning stove, a cute little kitchen to cook meals in, a dining table to sit as a family eat meals and play card games, but the selling point was that it was kid and pet friendlyand it was even gated for pets so we didn't have to worry about our dogs running off into the woods. I inquired about the cottage, the owner Nada Cathleen is such a sweetheart, and I could tell that she truly loved making sure that her quests that stay there are taken care of and have a pleasant stay. When we got to the cottage, she had it all set up for us, and had the heater turned on so when we came in out of the cold we walked in and felt at home. The bed was sooooo comfy, and waking up in the morning to the sun shining through the trees and hearing the birds sing was Heaven! Even the dog's had a great time! That was a really fun week spent together as a family, one we will never forget! If your looking for a great place to stay, I highly recommend Cathleen's Country Cottage!

                Owner response: Thank you so much for sharing your feelings about your stay at Cathleen's Country Cottage. Our lovely cottage is very comfortable for adults, children, and pets. The natural beauty of our wooded property provides a great place to relax and unwind! Best Wishes, Nada Cathleen Grigsby, owner

                I would like to thank Nada for her hospitality after a great 2 night stay at her cottage. My husband and our 2 young kids simply had a wonderful experience and would highly recommend this place to anyone looking to vacation in the Julian area. We had a really great personal experience with Nada Grisby (owner). She is a person of her word and the cottage was just as she had described it, clean, bright, well maintained and very cozy. We got lost getting to the cabin and she called us on our cell phone to find out our whereabouts after failing to reach us at the cabin. She stayed with us on the phone and made sure we arrived safely at the cabin, we were so impressed by her kindness!! The cabin was very well stocked with everything from pots and pans to baking trays. She also wasted no time in refunding our full security deposit which she posted less than a week after our stay. My only regret is that we never got to enjoy the lovely balcony due to the weather (it was very cold and rainy) but hopefully we shall be back over the summer. I thank you Nada and highly recommend anyone to Cathleen's cottage, you will not be dissapointed - Betty

                My mom, my seventeen year old daughter, and I thoroughly enjoyed the relaxing trip we had to Julian! We spent most of our time in the cabin talking, taking walks, and hanging out. We really loved the peaceful neighborhood and the sound of the leaves rustling as the sun shone through the lacy curtains. So nice to get away. The weather was beautiful and the trips to town were close and fun. We plan to return to the cottage and bring other family members, maybe even the dog! Thank you for everything!

                What an experience....beautiful trees, flowers, birds, quiet, and peace. It could have been better, if we would have had time to stay for 2 weeks :-) The place was nicer than the photos. If you are looking for a nice relaxing getaway in a place that is clean, cozy, romantic and well maintained, this is the place for you. Nada, the owner, was so helpful with all of the details...she is quite a nice person to work with. The hike that she recommends has a fantastic view. I would highly recommend this lovely vacation spot!

                Our stay was great. Lots of room for our dog to run and the house itself was quaint and nice. Only draw back was it was too far to walk to town with ease (approx 2 miles), but if thats the only downside, ill take it. Over all great weekend.

                Thank you so much for our weekend stay at your cottage! That is a really wonderful place to be and we enjoyed it very much! It's a pretty and comfortable cottage. It feels relaxing and pleasant just to be in it. It's roomy enough that we thought it would be lots of fun to go again with several friends and make use of the extra beds, refrigerator, stove, cupboards, closets, dishes, etc., for a weekend party, or a weeklong family reunion. But, it isn't too big for two and feels very cozy and friendly! The many lace curtained windows, provide soft, cheery, tree filtered light, the warm tones of the beautiful wood floors and the little touches, add to the charm of the cottage. It's been nicely cared for and is in good repair for a 1924 cottage, and is so tidy and clean! Incidentally, because your cottage was built in 1924, we enjoyed discovering other buildings from 1924, in the town, and got more interested in the local history. We felt more like we were part of Julian after just a weekend, and have an increased desire to help maintain the historic buildings, open spaces and simple, country charm of the place. The rocking chairs and fire in the front room of the cottage were greatly enjoyed, and we appreciated the many heaters that kept the temperature just right on the cold mights we were having that week. With the birds softly singing, and the weather so sunny and pleasant in the morning, we were able to enjoy the porch for breakfast. Around midday, the porch was the perfect place to share a relaxing afternoon, which we extended into a deep sleep siesta in that comfortable bed in the bedroom. We've been to the nearby observatories, so we already knew the sky's reputation for exceptional clarity, without much glare from the city lights, so we knew we'd be in for a treat when it came to star watching. As hoped, the nights were clear of clouds and the stars were plentiful and beautiful. Sitting on the porch watching them in that fresh air and the friendly quietness of the sparsely populated area, was uplifting and fun. We even had a few shooting stars!

                This is a very cute cottage just minutes from downtown Julian. The large, fenced in yard was perfect for our two dogs, in fact, I don't think they wanted to leave. It was exactly what we were looking for and will definitely be returning.
