Julian bungalow description

Located on over 100 acres of privately owned property the Bunkhouse sits by itself among the pine and oak trees. Two bedrooms with queen beds and private bathrooms (one with a tub) are decorated with antiques and local art. A rather large and open, fully suited kitchen with a dishwasher, microwave, gas stove and oven has extended access to the bar area and dining room table. Totally restored in 2008, this is a combined camping and luxury experience with privacy and Mother Nature at it's best.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2007

                      About the owner: Wanting to make our family move from Colorado to Southern California as smooth as possible, my father elected to settle in the mountains east of San Diego in the Gold Mine town of Julian. I had the privilege of growing up, going to school and working in this small, family orientated town. Following college I tipped my toe in the fountain of travel and never turned back. Keeping the world at my finger tips and my small town in my heart, I moved back up to Julian and have combined my talents with the love of nature and the mountains.

                      Why the Owner Chose Julian:
                      The Bunkhouse is unique in the fact that it has a great calming effect on those that visit it. Once you drive up you see how secluded and peaceful the location is with the wind blowing through the pines, a faint melody of wind chimes and the flutter of the birds on their feeders, you will understand why this makes a great vacation for those needing a one-on-one with nature.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
                      Without a doubt the front porch is one of our favorite spots. Facing North Peak (south), the easterly breeze keeps the temperatures down and viewing optimal. The living room - especially in the winter with the wood burning stove fired up - is very comfortable and has several large windows that bring in the morning sunlight and evening stars. If you are looking for secluded but still rustic, with a touch of class vacation, then the Bunkhouse is for you.
