Secluded, very private, cozy nature studio retreat "Enchanted Oaks" near the mountain town of Julian surrounded by oaks, acreage, and wildlife.
You can hike to Julian in 15-25 minutes, explore the property, or just relax on the large covered deck, the hammock, and enjoy nature, fresh air, bird watching, and 25 acres of open space Bring your sketchbook or easel and the books you've been wanting to read. (But if you must, there is Wi FI!)
Enjoy petting the horses or watching the emus in the adjacent pasture and if the weather is right you can have a campfire at night. Wild turkeys march through the property, sometimes deer, and raptors circle overhead.
You could trailer your horse here and go to various Julian horse trails. (extra fee)
New cottage and perfect setting to relax, paint, draw, write, read, or hike on the surrounding trails.
You can hike the road to the top overlooking downtown Julian or turn around and see all the way to the coast and Palomar Mountain. In Spring you will witness the amazing daffodil explosion on our 25 acre property, and blooming all over Julian as well as the native plants and trees.
In the Fall you can enjoy Apple Days, and on any clear night you can see the Milky Way: come visit the stars that you forgot were in the sky!
The pasture lights up on a Full Moon and near a New Moon the stars will amaze you. In Winter, visit the snow and enjoy the crisp chilled air, and in Summer enjoy the many hiking opportunities in the area and the open space and go to Julian for the best apple pie in the region!
