Palomar Mountain cabin description

See our Calendar for One Night stays. There are a few tucked between longer bookings for you. Like to get away from it all but have the luxuries of home? Come away to this delightful, newly remodeled, enchanting, cabin-in-the-woods. Slip back in time with the mountain-milled, cedar log siding and deck. This cabin makes your heart smile!
We have a stone fireplace waiting for you with a rustic mantel claimed from the forest floor. Cozy up in front of the fire on comfortable leather furniture with some vintage antiques woven in.

The modern amenities that we are sure you'll appreciate start with the newly remodeled, fully stocked, kitchen and bath with granite counters and a washer/dryer for your convenience. There is a 50 inch 'Smart TV' to turn on for your favorite music through Pandora, or watch a movie, and enjoy our high speed internet. That has now been enhanced with an Apple TV with so many options including using with your IPhone and IPad. A thermostat controlled propane wall heater warms the cabin up real quick too while you are building a fire in the stone fireplace.

You are welcome to browse from our library of books that take you back in time to days gone by, or some that inspire, intrigue or motivate. When was the last time you played Dominos? We have a collection of games to choose from, plus a few books and toys for the children.
Upstairs there is a master bedroom with a queen bed and reading nook. Close the black-out drapes, turn on the Sound Soother if you'd like, and settle in to sleep in... The loft above the living area has two, comfortable twin beds. Nightlights, light the stairs. The comfortable futon in the living room is standard size so can now sleep 5 very comfortably. Plus we do have a Pack N Play for your little ones.

Palomar is a place to 'not do' too. Enjoy a barbecue while soaking up the sun on the deck and take in the chorus of birds.
A trip to Palomar is not complete without going to the world famous Observatory. Browse the General Store, have lunch at Mother's Kitchen, and visit the Boucher Lookout. You can take off on a hike on the many miles of trails in the State Park and National Forest or fish in Doane Pond.

There are several 'Field Trips' within walking distance to visit neighbors who raise chickens, turkeys, goats and sheep. One neighbor is a carver, roasts coffee, and has eggs every color of the rainbow.

There are also wonderful day trips from Cabin Fever. However, one couple planned lots of outings but a couple days later, when they were checking out, totally relaxed, said, 'Next time maybe we will venture out of the cabin. It has such a wonderful ambiance and we loved it so much that we just had to stay in the entire time'. We have lots of options waiting for you at our Fun Things to Do link provided on this page, right above those nice Reviews that have come our way. Keep scrolling...

You're invited to be our guest and come away to Cabin Fever!

Looking for Things to Do from Cabin Fever? We have lots of options waiting for you to fill your days. We have a 'Tips for your Trip' when you book your stay. This includes an "Adventure Map" for easy directions to all to see and do on Palomar Mountain.

There are some farms and ranches that welcome guests. Two farms are walk-able from Cabin Fever. Save your table scraps for chickens, goats, sheep and a turkey that has been in a Coco's Restaurant commercial. Like fresh ground, organic coffee? You'll find that waiting for you along with eggs, goat cheese, milk and yarn.

A stay on Palomar would not be complete without a trip to the World Famous Observatory. If you can go on a Saturday, they usually have a behind the scenes tour that takes you out on the catwalk 50 feet about the ground, as the dome turns. Take your camera!

Bring your fishing license and gear with you and fish at Lake Henshaw, or get what you need there and fish at Doane Pond in the State Park. 20 miles of hiking trails, see fabulous views, Indian grinding holes in the big rocks and so much more.

Fish in Doane Pond

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2011

About: Longtime friends Nathan, and Jason and Julie, have partnered in several 'fix and flips' in San Diego area. As Investors and Realtors, they have enjoyed the challenge of rehabbing, remodeling, breathing new life into very tired properties, and selling them to very happy, new owners. When they came across this fixer on Palomar, they had to have it, but not to 'fix and flip'. This one is a keeper! Do you know of tired, neglected properties? Any tips are appreciated as they are constantly looking for their next 'deal'.

Why Palomar Mountain:
This is the first property that they have taken on with no intention of ever selling. They love the idea of owning a Vacation Rental and being able to use it when it is not rented. A huge bonus is that there is another fixer cabin on the same property. Already named 'Shady Oaks', it is presently used for storage, patiently waiting for them to wave their magic wand again. Please stay tuned! Eventually the goal is to have two very unique cabins available for larger groups. Be assured that no construction will happen during your visit. That's a promise!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Another reason they could not resist owning these two little diamonds-in-the-rough, was the access. It is great to have such good parking when we are treated to a Winter Wonderland. The property also has some wonderful oaks, firs and cedars with a couple big boulders peppered around the land. There is an amazing chorus of birds to enjoy from the deck. Their initial goal of creating a 'Vintage, Modern Cabin' has paid off and is appreciated by all. You have the comforts of home, with the vintage touches that remind many of fond visits to Grandparent's homes in days gone by. Folks also have fun seeing the 'Before and After' photos at the cabin, of the progress creating this charming cabin for you to enjoy with new additions all the time. Ah, Cabin Fever is very special! We hope to have you as guests, and invite you to share this link with your friends! Thank you so much!
