About the property

Chateau / Country House, 8 Bedrooms + Convertible Bed(s), 7 Baths (Sleeps 12-25)

This wonderful western home offers a warm country feel and a great mountain energy. The downstairs offers so many possibilities. There is a full kitchen fully stocked with all you need to cook, bake and enjoy preparing meals. There is a large, homey family space which can be used as two separate areas for one group to play cabin games, while others curl up in front of the wood burning stove and enjoy the over-sized comfortable leather couches and a good movie on the TV. There is a big master bedroom with a separate bath, allowing you to retire in comfort. Two more bedrooms offer additional sleeping space, while sharing a separate family room. These bedrooms, an accompanying bathroom and small living room can be closed off behind a dividing door, to allow privacy and the separate 2-bedroom suite.

Upstairs leads to even more space and delights. There is another full kitchen attached to a family room with a wood burning stove/fireplace and an opening couch. Connected to this room are two additional bedrooms each with its own bathroom.

Through the french doors you find another great living room which leads to three individual suites boasting their own bathrooms, private entrances, and access to all the fabulous decks on the back of the home.

This wonderful log trimmed home backs up to over 20 acres of wooded space allowing for walks, hikes, meditation and bird watching. The sounds, views and smells of the country surround and entice you to venture out into a great exploration of Julian's mountain wilderness. The property connects to horseback riding trails, bike trails, extensive hiking trails and any number of combinations. Perfect for family reunions, group retreats, corporate getaways, or just a little time with your family. There is a large propane grill inviting all to gather round and picnic, feast, or entertain. Most bedrooms and living rooms open onto decks allowing for enjoyment of the views and mountain air at any time of day or night. Completely private and natural.

Always amazing

  • 5 of 5

We had another amazing retreat at the wagon wheel this weekend! The house was perfect for us as always. Plenty of room for everyone and anything we needed. The weather was beautiful and the grounds surrounding the house really make it feel like a true retreat. Thank you again Barb for all your help and we will see you next year!

Perfect Retreat Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had our church retreat at the Wagon Wheel with 20 people. It was a wonderful location for our group size! The fact that their are multiple living rooms & kitchens helped make it easy for multiple people to relax in different spots and have more people help cook meals! We had 3 children on the retreat with us, and even they enjoyed the cabin & wanted to live in a place like that. The land surrounding the cabin was fun to explore and adventure in each day with the kids. Having a pool table, fooseball table, and ping pong table also were big hits!

We are glad there were so many bathrooms for the size cabin. It helped make everyone feel comfortable & like they had their own privacy which some retreats lack.

We definitely would be interested in having another group visit here in the future! :) Thank you for everything!

Great Property for large Groups. Comfortable and Roomy

  • 5 of 5

The location was easy to find and was a perfect fit for 26 people. The wood stoves were much appreciated due to the cold. The decor was nice and everyone had a bed. The place had enough room so it did not feel like it was crowded. We look forward to staying again.

Great Home Base for our Hiking Tribe

  • 5 of 5

This funky, fun and cozy property was perfect for our women's hiking group. What a great home base from which to explore the wonders of Julian and the surrounding countryside. Loved watching several mule deer munching acorns in the back yard while we prepared meals, played board games and enjoyed the local cider. There were 17 of us and we had lots of space and for once, enough bathrooms. Highly recommend! Great for large groups!
