The perfect getaway cabin

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I absolutely loved spending our Christmas days in this gem of a cabin. It had everything we needed, and being surrounded by nature was so lovely. Alan the owner was very welcoming and showed us around and made sure we knew the ins and outs of the place. The cabin is so charming with lots of personality. If you ever need a place to unwind and just shake off the busyness of life this is indeed the perfect place.

Romantic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Alan and Diana's cabin was the perfect spot to spend our 11th anniversary weekend! It was a beautiful drive from San Diego and the cabin was well-kept and had everything we needed. We loved our nightly soaks in the hot tub under the stars, feeding the birds in the mornings, and daily hikes in the area. An added bonus was the record collection - many of which I had growing up...a nice nostalgia tour! Dinner at the Lazy H Ranch (~ 20 minutes away) was wonderful! We would love to return!!

a quaint and relaxing cabin

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is clean and well equipped. We love the solid wood dining table and its 2 benches, which could be sitting up to 6 people comfortably. The outdoor jacuzzi is wonderful, which provides 5 star experience either under a starlit sky or with mesmerizing sunset views.

This cabin is also decorated with many interesting collections, very quaint and unique, especially the manual telephone switchboards.
