Julian house description

This lovely cabin sits on the edge of the world and overlooks the Cuyamaca mountains range.

It is conveniently located near Heise Park biking and walking trails. Only three miles from the historical gold mining town of Julian and 80 miles from downtown San Diego and its beaches and tourist attractions.

Only a one mile stroll to the Pine Hills Lodge where you can enjoy the live performances of local talent and the Lodge restaurant bar. . . . or a great Sunday brunch. There are many fine food eateries and winderies in town, just three miles away.

Enjoy golfing at Warner Hot Springs Country Club, wine tasting at several local wineries, touring Anza/Borrego Desert, Cuyamaca Park and Cuyamaca Lake, Observers Inn and Palomar Observatory. A new gaming casino is only 10 miles down the mountain. But don't forget to stop and enjoy the local apple pie at MOM's or at the Julian Apple Pie Company. Our favorite is Apple Alley's. Take a day to fish at nearby Cuyamaca Lake or tour a gold mine. There is a wonderful park for strolling, skateboarding or biking, just outside of the small town.
This comfortable cabin is completely finished with knotty-pine paneling, antiques and country decor. Spectacular views from the wrap-around decks, with gas BBQ. Bring your binoculars. Lots of birdwatching.

Includes: Direct TV, DVD, VCR, CD player, wood burning stove (wood provided) and forced air and heat. Fully-equipped, large kitchen, one queen bedroom on main floor, one California-king bedroom upstairs and four bunk beds downstairs. Crib available upon request. Queen blowup mattresses also available.

A full bath on every floor. Perfect place for a family get-together, girls weekend or couples retreat. Sleeps 8 comfortably.

                            We have rented other cabins, however, nothing compared to this experience. Dealing with the owners was positively wonderful. The cabin was more beautiful than the photos, large, beautiful, and very comfortable. The views from the outside decks are awesome. You could actually sleep more than 8, if needed. We were very impressed by the cleanliness since many rentals can be somewhat disappointing. You will not be diappointed if lucky enough to stay in this Julian cabin.

                            This Cabin is a great place for a Family Vacation or a group get away. Conveniently located near downtown Julian CA, Wynola and Santa Isabel. The cabin has all the amenities for a great get away. It is truly a nice place to get away from the everyday grind and allow yourself to relax in a beautiful setting.

                            The cabin facilities, location and view all exceeded our expectations, which contributed to my family's GREAT time during our first visit to Julian. The property was clean, well-stocked and highly maintained. Beth was absolutely wonderful to work with, as she provided clear directions, extra hints and valuable information about the Julian area (suggested sights, places to eat, etc.). Not only would I recommend this cabin to a friend or relative, I most definitely will plan to return there for another family vacation in the future!

                            Recommended for: Adventure seekers, sightseeing.

                            If you are looking for a beautiful, well-maintained, quite retreat you have found it. The photo's of the cabin do not do it justice. We spent a wonderful weekend with good friends and family exploring the wineries in the Julian area Veteran's Day weekend 2011. This very comfortable cabin retreat has everything you would need even down to the umbrella's we needed. The rain did not stop us from having a great time. There are several great restaurants. We enjoyed the pizza at Wynola Pizza on Friday night, they offer live music with local talent. Saturday night we had to make a choice for dinner between the Julian Grille and Jeremy's on the Hill. The Julian Grille was excellant. And don't forget to have a slice of a Julian Apple Pie. We would recommend two places, The Julian Pie Company and Mom's. Both have excellant pie. Thank you Chuck and Beth for opening up your beautiful cabin in the woods for us to use, we enjoyed the weekend and will recommend your cabin to friends and family.

                            Our Family of 5 just spent a few days over the Holdays ( Dec. 2010) in this fantastic cabin retreat.... I would highly recommend it to everyone ! with 3 bathrooms and such a large living space, there is plenty of room for many people. the view is to die for, and we had a mix of all modern ( properly working) amenities with a rustic cabin feel (altho it is in excellent shape !). note this is one case when the pictures do not do it justice... the place is much better than portrayed in the pictures ! (which is a risk via the internet at times...). We hope to return and thank the owners for sharing their wonderful home !! (one person came from Paris France, is in the vacation rental business...so we had exacting expectations ! ) merci !!

                            Our family of 8 adults and a toddler came together from all over the country for a short vacation. The cabin was ideal. Everybody thought it was fantastic! It was filled with comfortable rooms and chairs, every amenity, a fantastic wrap-around balcony with hammock, with a stunning view across the valley to the next mountain, and spectacular stars at night. We hiked; picked apples; toured a gold mine; shopped and ate very well in nearby Julian; and enjoyed just hanging around in the comfort and beauty of this home.

                            We celebrated Easter in this beautiful cabin, full of amenities, beautifully decorated, and the most awesome sights when the clouds cleared. We can attest to the cabin’s great craftsmanship as we rode through the Mexicali earthquake - felt as a 4.2 in Julian (or so the local paper said). Great place for any gathering or just to get away. Highly recommend it and would definitely return. Thank you!

                          About the owner: My husband and I have been married 50 years and have built several homes; but this cabin, in Julian, is our favorite. We have shared it with our family and friends since 2001. We opened it to renters nine years ago and have been blessed with the opportunity of meeting many new friends. Several families have returned for second visits and plan to return again for reunions. It is the perfect, quick, get-away place for a family or for couples to share and enjoy the quiet and beauty of the outdoors. It is also a perfect mainstay while visiting the San Diego area. Only an hour away from tourist attractions, but far enough away, and quiet enough, to think you have your own place in paradise. Come share our 'little slice of heaven' in the mountains of San Diego, California.

                          Why the Owner Chose Julian:
                          Close to San Diego, but yet away from it all.
