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.

About Doris or Odd Busk
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 Doris or Odd Busk chose Pine Valley
We chose this property because of its peaceful energy and unique Native American history, and old growth forest setting.
What makes this House unique
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.

We are inlove of Noruegan Woods
We have been in different cabins to spend the weekend, and they are very nice places, but Noruegan woods is the best Doris took the time to fill in all the details that we needed the welcome with a nice music background and a spectacular cleaning and a very well equipped kitchen. the bedrooms with an exterior view is truly beautiful where you can appreciate the gardens and their large trees.
Doris was very kind to put some objects for our pet that was a very nice detail. Also the breakfast was waiting for us without additional cost. The beds are very cofortables ,the blankets as well, and the pillows that make you sleep like a baby
the photographs do not do justice to the place The reality is that the place is really beautiful. We are already making arrangements to go soon. It is very convenient that a grocery store is 4 minutes away.
Our little puppy was very happy
Doris thank you for let us to check out late so we had more time to enjoy the easter
Thank you for the pasta and spaguetty sauce
The sodas and all the extras you provide to make aur stay unforgetable
It is our guests, like yourself, that make Norwegian Woods so special. Thank you for staying with us. We look forward to your return.
Doris and Odd
Amazing! Simple and incredible
I knew when I was first contacted that my stay was going to be perfect. I could tell immediately that Doris and Odd genuinely cared about their guests.
I was pleasantly surprised by how perfect the house was. The location was incredible, quiet but still close to everything. All the amenities were so thoughtful-the tea,cocoa, breakfast provisions, and on and on.
The beds were so comfortable and the area so peaceful.
So relaxing! Great amenities!
What a great little place! We wanted a quiet weekend get away, and thus was just the spot. It was a beautiful drizzly weekend, and we kept the drapes open and had the fire going.
The master bed is very comfortable with soft sheets and great linens. The added treats of coffee, creamer, breakfast, sodas & snacka were a great bonus! Kitchen is small but we'll sticjed. We lacjed for nothing and we will be back. Thank you!
Private, cozy, comfy getaway!
We had a marvelous and relaxing time at this property. When we arrived there were candles burning and soft music playing. Our hosts left us a bowl of chocolates and even some dog treats for our pup! We enjoyed a fire in the inside firepit in the evening and during the day took advantage of fabulous hiking nearby. The property is large and wooded and worth exploring. The only surprise was learning that there are three cats that have free roam of the yard. Even though the yard is fenced we leash walked our dog to prevent her from chasing them!
Thank you Nancy for the nice review. We hope you can return for future visits. In cleaning, we found a doggy toy (rope bone). I will be happy to return to you. i will need a mailing address. Regarding our over spoiled cats....they were raised around dogs and could use a little chasing now and then.
Beautiful, relaxing hideaway
My husband and I really loved staying in this guest house! It really does have a Norwegian feel to it - koselig. :)
The attention to detail is what makes this place so comforting and relaxing, you can tell everything has been thought out. For example, the mini binoculars that you can borrow to birdwatch, the unexpected bag of popcorn, and the fresh bagels and fruit that are part of the complimentary continental breakfast.
It's also great to be in a remote area, but still have strong cell phone service (AT&T) and be close to so many activities. We did some touristy/sightseeing things in San Diego, visited the PCT terminus, hiked in the Laguna Mountains, ate delicious pie in Julian, and drove all the way through the Anza-Borrego Desert. The change in scenery in such a small area is very beautiful and dramatic.
Comfortable, peaceful property
Great for family, kids had a great time!
Located at the foot of the Laguna Mountains in beautiful San Diego County. A short ten minute dive west and you are at Viejas Casino and outlet shopping center for great shopping, dining and nightlife entertainment. Great hiking trails, mountain biking, cycling and fishing. Only 40 minutes to downtown San Diego, beaches, world famous San Diego Zoo, Sea World, Scripps Institute and Balboa Park with its many museum's. 30 Minutes to Historic Julian, known for it's apple pie. A short drive east and drop into the beautiful Anza Borrego desert and you can visit dessert flowers in bloom during the season or marvel at many desert sculptures that are place throughout Borrego Springs. There is just so many things to do here year round. We have it all. Imagine, that you have the choice to choose your climate for the day. You can enjoy the coast, drive to the mountains to play in the snow and enjoy a slice of pie and wind up in the warm desert and back home, all in one day!
