Property description


Follow us on instagram @Cottageonthecreek

If you like style in the details, character and charm, then we are a match made in heaven ... Here you will find all the amenities you love and want in a vacation home. We love to share insider tips about Fallbrook and the surrounding areas. And we L O V E our guests! You are treated like the treasures that you are ~ Whatever we can do to help is our pleasure. Please just ask!

We bought this home 12 years ago because of the stunning property. We updated the house by putting in an abundance of used brick, state of the art appliances, a wine cooler, hand forged iron details, an antique mantle salvaged from a castle in England-yes, for real! 2 AC/heating units (one for each end of the house), a grand deck and terraced back yard PERFECT for entertaining, and to top it off a built in fire pit, spa, in ground trampoline and grass galore. We have a foosball table, ping pong table, bad mitten, bocce ball, croquet, corn hole and a basketball hoop too! In other words, the kids are entertained while you relax. It's the perfect home base in between your vacation adventures.

The family rooms have plenty of couch space to sprawl and watch a movie or take a great nap. Two large flat screen TVs with DVR, DVD, and Blue Ray, board games, large selections of DVDs and books.

The kitchen is a favorite feature of our guests. It's got a vaulted tongue and groove barrel ceiling, double ovens, gas burners, huge fridge and freezer, microwave, disposal, dishwasher, and stunning granite counter space like you won't believe. If you plan on cooking, it's the bomb of kitchens! Plus, it's beautiful.

The table seats 8 comfortably. Ten can fit cozily and there is room for 4 at the counter with stools. (Not to mention a plethora of outdoor eating spaces.)

The Master bedroom has its own private deck complete with umbrella and comfortable wicker chairs perfect for morning coffee. The king size bed with a Pottery Barn iron bed frame is comfy as can be and there are plenty of soft, cozy blankies in the cupboard to make it just right for your sleeping pleasure. And of course, a private bath and large walk in closet. (FYI closet is large and very well ventilated so that it is also perfect for a porta crib and cozy sleeping spot for baby.)

Bedroom #2 has 3 twins beds (one bunk and another twin, totaling 3 beds).

Bedroom #3 has a queen size bed.

A twin daybed resides in a nook in the hallway.

Bedroom #4 has 2 twin beds in the form of a bunk bed. (The upper bunk is quite high and NOT suitable for young children.)

You will find 2 tubs in the bathrooms and all the extras you might need, like plush towels, hair dryers, body lotion, shampoo, conditioner, tp, kleenex, and the like.

The yard is PERFECT for children and doggies (both well behaved, preferably). We have lots of our own (both kids and dogs) so we are well suited for either. Fenced with lots of grass, as well as a sunken trampoline, spa over looking a beautiful creek full of Oak trees, a BBQ, a fire pit for s'more roasting, a huge deck with lots of seating for dinner or lounging and a wonderful place to just rest. It's likely where you will spend a lot of time, if you are anything like us!

Great neighborhood for walking and/or running as well as dog walking. Very, very limited traffic due to there being no outlet. Just awesome tranquility! And our property is nestled in the very, very back of an already very quiet street-- tucked away snug as can be for total privacy.

You will find a welcome notebook to help you navigate the town complete with retail and restaurant suggestions.

Please feel free to get in touch with me prior to booking with any questions you may have. I'm happy to work with you as you plan your stay.

Thank you for looking at our property.

Fallbrook is a quiet, just out-of-the-way-enough, charming & quaint town as well as the perfect "home base " in between your vacation adventures. The best part of Fallbrook is we don't get the intense heat of the Temecula wineries (but DO go visit for the day) nor do we get the socked in days the beaches do. Hit the theme parks for the day then come home to your private residence to grill outside on the huge deck and then soak in the spa before you go out and find your next adventure.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Andy and I are born and bred Californians. We bought this house in 2004 and spent the next few years doing a complete remodel. After 10 years of living here we got a wild hair and decided to up and move to Wyoming! We loaded up our 6 kids, 2 dogs and the grandparents and have started living a wonderful life in a totally new world. But, alas, we couldn't leave our beautiful home. We are thrilled that it has become a popular vacation home; and grateful that we get to come warm up in California a couple times a year. God Bless sunshine!

Why the Owner Chose Fallbrook:
You'll know once you come. Its very special.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Close to town yet private and quiet.
