Property description

Quiet one bedroom with sleeping loft (there is a ladder to access the loft, children under 10 are not advised to sleep in the loft), tucked away the among the trees on majestic Palomar Mountain. If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and relax in front of the fire or sit on the outside deck and watch the stars this is the cabin for your weekend getaway. The cabin is rustic on the outside but as you walk thru the door you enter into a cozy living room with all the modern conveniences, such as a flat screen television and a full kitchen with granite counter tops, Viking stove and microwave. Everything you need to make a gourmet meal.
At the end of a long hike relax and soak in a hot bath with everything you need; towels, shampoo, conditioner, bath gel. Go to bed in one of the 2 queen size beds under a down comforter, fresh linens and soft pillows for a restful sleep. Or you may want to fall asleep in front of the crackling fire in the living room.
Travel farther up the road to visit the Palomar Observatory, open to the public daily. Fish at Done Pond in the State Park. 2 NIGHT MINIMUM

Keywords: Quaint. Quiet. Tranquil. These words don't even scratch the surface of Falling Cedar Cabin and its environment. Buried deep in the slopes of Palomar Mountain, this cabin is a respite from everyday life. Let the surrounding trees and wildlife nurture you outdoors while the cabin soothes and stills you on the inside where amenities abound, providing tender ease and comfort. Once the glowing embers in the wood-burning stove warm your bones after a long healthy hike, you won't want to leave. The cabin sleeps 4 comfortable, we have 1 bedroom (queen bed) and 1 sleeping loft w/queen bed (see photo of loft)

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: My husband and I found the cabin in 2000, it had been neglected for over 20 years. As a general contractors ,my husband, Don had a vision of what the old 1930's cabin could become. We added glass tile back splash in the kitchen, granite counter tops, refinished the original hardwood floors and added comfortable furnishings, all the amenities you need to have a wonderful vacation.

Why the Owner Chose Palomar Mountain, CA, USA:
I have been traveling to Palomar Mountain since I was a child. My family camped at the State Park every year. The State Park has great hiking trails. My family was so happy when we bought the cabin, now we will be able to have family reunions on the mountain again. Our cabin is situated in the back country of Palomar on 3 acres, very quiet, great for naps and bird watching. I'm sure you will enjoy our cabin and the Mountain as we have for many years.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Our cabin is located off the main paved road on a private dirt road. Our dirt road has been regraded and surfaced. I drive a Volvo S40 and have no problem getting in and out(always drive slowly on dirt roads). If you are coming to stay in Nov. you should have an all wheel or 4 wheel drive, just in case it rains or you get some snow. Our property is off the beaten track and that is why people enjoy it. The Cabin is a Very Quiet place to be. While you are there enjoy Hiking, mountain biking, bird watching, deers walk thru the property, watching the stars at night of the deck, worm yourself in front of the wood burning stove, travel up the the historic Palomar Mountain Observatory (Hale Telescope)
