Wonderfully Quiet and close Julian

  • 4 of 5

The property is in great condition and very quiet. The kitchen is well stocked with all the dishes and pans necessary to make some wonderful meals in the home. The beds are comfortable along with all the furnishings. We loved how close the property was to the state park and the hiking all around as well.

Peace and Quite

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was everything we were looking for. We also liked the park being close. Enjoyed the trials and did lots of hiking. All in all this made a very enjoyable anniversary for us. It was also nice that it was dog friendly .

Wilderness setting, Homey atmosphere, Comforts aplenty !

  • 5 of 5

My best girlfriend and I brought our two dogs and spent two nights here - a getaway and "home base" for a long awaited day trip to the Anza-Borrego wildflowers. Charmed immediately by the brilliant tulips blooming all around the front yard of this modern home nestled at the end of a road. Pine trees soaring high and all the wildlife you could want to entertain you. We especially loved watching and hearing the wild turkeys take their walks through the leaves, the blue jays twittering among the trees and even saw 5 deer cross the road while driving into Julian one afternoon. Delightful town with more creative shops than you can visit in one trip, high quality restaurants to delight your culinary tastes [Jeremy's on the Hill, Romano's & Carmen's]. I've been to many vrbo homes and this is among the best ! You won't be disappointed....

Great Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This secluded home tucked away 1 mile from the heart of Julian was cozy, well equipped and the perfect place for our family of four and two border collies. Our two grown sons busied themselves building fires and playing guitar during the crisp and/or rainy days we stayed there. We enjoyed a long hike in the nearby State Park when weather permitted, walking around Julian, and the art gallery in Santa Ysabel. We made all of our meals in the excellent kitchen, including a cheese fondue consumed in front of the warming fireplace in the living room. A perfect after Christmas getaway before our boys went back to school! Would recommend it highly.

Los Angeles


  • 5 of 5

Julian Mountain Haven was just as described, perfect. It sits on the boarder of San Diego County land so there are no neighbors adjacent, giving it a very woodsy isolated feeling. The homes was supplied with everything you needed to feel the comforts of home however the view and cabin interior let me know I was far from Los Angeles. Looking very forward to returning again. :) Thank you.
