Traveling with kids, pets, or both? Our place is decorated with a mixture of antique and new furnishings but is not so pristine you have to worry every five seconds about damaging designer pieces. We certainly expect you to take good care of the place but we have two boys, so we get the fact that they need wide open spaces to play, lots of games and toys, and if they catapult over the couch playing ninja attack when you have your back turned we understand---I mean, you can't crate train them like the dogs. Just don't have the kids wipe their hands on our drapes or have your dogs use our good dining room chairs as chew toys.
PLEASE CHECK OUR CALENDAR BEFORE EMAILING US IF THE DATE IS AVAILABLE
If you want to "come home'" and relax without hearing 'there is nothing to do here' then you need to book with us. A dedicated kids room stocked with toys, games, as well as a train table, farmers market stand with play food, and kid-size table and chair. A toddler slide is located near our wildlife watering trough and there are rope swings for extra play fun. Bring snow discs for sledding fun--- plenty of hills mean you never have to leave the property! You can also walk the trails from our property.
This single family home was built in 1979 and was used as a primary residence until we converted it to a vacation rental in 2005. If you expect a resort type feel like you get at the new upscale condos and cabins, this is not it. This is a family-friendly, dog-friendly cabin. We have added many upgrades to the home including a tankless water heater, filtration system to filter out the well water, remote thermostat to pre-heat or pre-cool the cabin, additional sleeping in a bonus room (only available for extra fee), clearing the over grown trees for a better view to the city, laundry area,, updated lighting fixtures, new paint downstairs to lighten the room up, new hardwood floors downstairs, and countless other things we have done since we have owned the property in 2003.
If you complain about what it isn't, you fail to see the beauty of what it is and the magical spot it is where wildlife is attracted to our front door.
FOR TODDLERS AND INFANTS: kid-friendly cups and plates to diaper pails, 2 toddler booster high chair attachments, infant bouncy seat, and more
Cedar Creek Falls Retreat is a house with close to 2200 square feet total and is located near the Cedar Creek Falls and on an acre of land in the exclusive area of Pine Hills 4 miles from the historic town of Julian in Northern San Diego. Nestled in majestic oaks, our house sits just off the main road in a secluded hillside with views to the mountains. City lights can be seen from the downstairs porch. A wrap-around deck includes a roomy balcony deck with tables and chairs which is a great place to watch sunsets through the trees. A bird feeding plank is installed on the balcony and a wide array of birds can be viewed from inside the living room. There is an additional deck off the kitchen with another table and chairs. At night you have full view of the stars. We have made the balcony safe by installing fencing overlapping the railings. The property perimeter is fenced so that kids and dogs are prevented from wondering off. There is even a dog kennel area. Obviously this is no substitution for supervision and we do have mountain lions and possibly a wolf so please don't let kids or dogs wander beyond fence line alone. Home to the wild turkeys and deer, our water trough gives you front row seating to morning and afternoon migrations from our balcony or living room.
DOWNSTAIRS: The first floor bedroom & bathroom is the Master Bedroom Suite and perfect place for a couple with one child. It boasts a huge corner wood-burning fireplace with flat-screen TV. Beds include a Queen Size bed and a 2-twin daybed that can join together to make a King and a private bathroom. A small covered patio is located off this bedroom. The Bonus Room located behind this suite that sleeps an additional 5 guests, has a Queen, a Full, and kitchenette and shares a bathroom with the downstairs suite.
UPSTAIRS: The second floor is the main living area (has its own entrance) containing a large living room with sofa-bed and loveseat, another corner fireplace, dining room for 12, and a full kitchen. A special closet holds dog essentials.
Upstairs bedrooms include a Master with a Cal King Bed, and sliding door that leads to the balcony. The kids' room has trundle that pulls out to another King. As mentioned earlier---plenty of toys to keep them occupied from ages 6 months and up.
Walk up the main road and view a panoramic vista of the mountains and ocean from Mexico to the Catalina Islands.
Just minutes away are daytime adventures for you and your family including a Gold Mine tour, fishing, horseback riding, wine tasting, and a stroll through downtown Julian for shopping and a slice of world-famous apple pie.

UPSTAIRS KIDS' ROOM: On-site games and toys for children 6 months and up. Historic Gold-Mining Tour in Julian
Hiking from the property as well as the newly opened Cedar Creek Falls.
Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: We purchased this home in 2003 and a month later the Cedar Fires came roaring through our woods. Most of those trees have been cut down which now creates a view to the mountain vista. That experience combined with the San Diego fires in 2007 gave me enough motivation to leave 24 years in the film/tv industry and become an Insurance Broker.
Why the Owner Chose Julian, CA, USA:
I grew up in San Diego and we would take day-trips to Julian as kids. I remember getting fresh baked bread from Dudley's and placing it between my brother and I. We'd make a hole in one side of the bread like mice and eat the inside leaving the crust. We had family living in Julian so when this property became available we seized it. We find the experience being there like no other.....
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love this property! My boys have a great time swinging on the rope swings for hours, chasing turkeys, or spotting deer. Even though most of the toys at the cabin were theirs, they seem to have a new-found interest in them when we are there. They have all sorts of adventures on the property within the fence. We even rented a small Quad and rode on the trails Thanksgiving. We have many upgrades in the works but as always our focus will be kid/pet friendly with long-term wear and tear in mind. We hope your family enjoys our second home as much as we do!
