Enjoy this charming cottage located in a quiet, wooded neighborhood two miles east of Julian's historic township. Our vacation home sits on a spacious, corner lot that has a circular driveway and many mature oak, pine, and cedar trees.

The interior of Cathleen's Country Cottage includes newer hardwood flooring throughout the bedroom, kitchen, dining and living room areas. Our cottage-style windows overlook our surrounding trees. Our cottage is attractively furnished with newer, comfortable pieces that include a queen-size bed in the bedroom, two full-size sleeping futons in the living room, and a single-size sofa sleeper. Our farmhouse-style dining room furniture seats up to six people. We provide firewood for the living room's wood-burning stove. Our cheerful kitchen is equipped with dishes, flatware, and cooking ware. This cottage has air-conditioning, electric heating in each living area and ceiling fans. We provide wireless Internet service and satellite television.

Pet dogs may stay inside the cottage with their owners. Pet dogs may stay with prior approval of the property owner. This vacation home has large, fenced areas to exercise pet dogs on our large, wooded property.

There is plenty of private parking on the property that includes space for recreational vehicles.

You can use the roomy front deck for outside dining, barbecuing, star-gazing, bird-watching, and waving to friendly neighbors who are taking their daily strolls or riding their bicycles. Our trees house many birds, and capture the sounds of beautiful, mountain breezes. You may be visited by our animal neighbors that include turkeys, raccoons, deer, bobcats, and foxes.

This is a great getaway cottage where you can relax and feel that you are really on vacation!

Nice Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This home was very cozy. It is in a good location, close to town. Being that I have a small dog I liked that it was completely fenced. Had a wonderful time.

Perfect for a family weekend with the dogs

  • 4 of 5

It looks just like it does in the picture. Cute, hidden away just enough, yet very close to downtown (under 2 miles). The fenced-in yard was perfect for our two dogs. It's not fancy, which makes it all the more comfortable when traveling with kids and dogs. We would stay here again.

Lovely and cozy!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here on a cold weekend with my husband, baby, toddler, and a few friends. I loved the feel of the place! The cottage was very clean, and had everything we needed and more! I was thrilled to find that any supply I could need was there, and I was able to cook and bake. We even baked some of the delicious little yellow apples from the tree out front. (I would even go back just for those apples, they were so good). The wood stove was easy to use, safe, and brought an extra coziness to the house. The bed in the bedroom was comfortable and had a beautiful quilt and pillow shams. I took a photo of my baby sitting on the bed with the light coming in through the windows it turned out gorgeous. We loved our stay and will definitely come again!

Lovely little cottage!

  • 5 of 5

I had a great time with my dogs! Nada was very available via phone and email if I needed anything. Perfect little getaway! I do agree, however, with a lot of the other reviewers that the TV is a little small, especially since it is placed so far away from the futon couches. Other than that, the place is great! I had a lovely time.
