About the Property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

1100 sq ft, one bedroom guest house with an open floor plan that includes a large indoor, circular sunken fireplace and lots of privacy on three acres is located on a designated 'Native America Heritage Site'. This property has one of the largest Mortero collections in the county (where early Native Americans used the local rocks to grind their grains and medicines). Set among mature Live Oaks, Manzanita and various pine trees, this spacious and serene getaway will take your breath away! We are close enough to enjoy everything that San Diego has to offer but a world away from the traffic and congestion of the city.

There is just so much you can do year round - Mountain biking, hiking, fishing. Besides the beach and all the water activities, you can also venture into the desert on ATVs or Dune Buggies.

Live music at all levels from concerts to cafes, Balboa Park, fine arts,
fine dining and, of course, the San Diego Zoo, Safari Park and SeaWorld.
Norwegian Woods is also a prime location for artists to spend time writing and painting as the grounds are an inspiration for quiet creativity.

For the romantic, it's an opportunity to come together in a natural, peaceful setting. Isn’t it good…Norwegian Wood.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: Both are adoring grandparents and their sizable families live within a few hours drive all around San Diego County. Doris is a California girl and a Five Star Chef and her husband, Odd is a native-born Norwegian, a retired oil platform engineer. They purchased this house in 1995 and have recreated a path together with Norwegian Woods, your home away from home. With over ten years as the Chef at an upscale B&B, and my Norwegian-born husband, a retired oil platform engineer, we made the decision to recreate our paths.

Why the Owner Chose Pine Valley, CA, USA:
We chose this property because of its peaceful energy and unique Native American history, and old growth forest setting.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The tranquil setting among the trees enhances the privacy unlike any other. Inside, the circular fireplace beckons you to gather round and enjoy a cocktail or toddy, tea or coffee and each other. The property sits on a designated 'Kumuyaay Native American Heritage' site with one of the largest known collections of rock morteros in this area, along with many pottery shards The property was a part a summer/fall encampment for desert and coastal Indian bands for hundreds and possibly thousands of years. According to many local tribal members familiar with the property, this is a very special place and blessed. We believe them.
