Property description

1,100sf one bedroom guest house with an open floor plan that includes a large indoor, sunken fireplace and lots of privacy on three acres. Located on a designated 'Native America Heritage Site', the property has one of the largest Mortero collections in the county with many mature Live Oaks, Manzanita and various pine trees. We are close enough to enjoy everything that San Diego has to offer but a world away from the traffic and congestion of the city.

There is just so much you can do year round. Mountain biking, hiking, fishing. You can also venture into the desert or the arts, fine dining and, of course, the San Diego Zoo, Safari Park and SeaWorld.

Norwegian Woods is also a prime location for artists to spend time writing and painting as the grounds are an inspiration for quiet creativity.

For the romantic, it's an opportunity to come together in a natural, peaceful setting.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: With over ten years as the Chef at an upscale B&B, and my Norwegian-born husband, a retired oil platform engineer, we made the decision to recreate our paths.

Why the Owner Chose Pine Valley:
We choose this property because of its peaceful energy and unique Native American history and old growth forest setting.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The property sits on a designated 'Kumuyaay Native American Heritage' site with one of the largest known collections of rock mortar's (mortero's) in this area along with many pottery shards. The property was a part a summer/fall encampment for desert and coastal Indian bands for hundreds and possibly thousands of years. According to many local tribal members familiar with the property, this is a very special place and blessed. I believe him.
