Property description

If you want PEACE AND QUIET, you have found a special place.
For faster service TEXT me 619-871-9354.

The Lilacs is a beautifully restored, cozy 1920's Redwood cabin on Palomar Mountain just one hour, 25 minutes from San Diego. The cabin has three bedrooms and two baths, full kitchen, an original rock hearth, and is simply FULL of fun, atmosphere and special vibes.

The original Redwood walls and timbers were hand-assembled by craftsmen some 80+ years ago. I recently renovated it all and worked hard to preserve as much of the original character and charm; including hand-made cabinets, walls, doors and windows. Then I totally upgraded and spiffed up the bathrooms and kitchen.

The cabin is located on the ever-peaceful Evergreen Trail in the Bailey Meadows area, by most accounts the most historic and quaint part of Palomar Mountain. ( a heavy day of traffic on Evergreen Trail is 4 cars a day)

Besides relaxing, there is lots of scenic outing and lots to do on Palomar and the surrounding region. For cool links and details, see the website! See the website link below. PalomarMountainCabin (dot) com

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: I am a retired teacher. Rebuilding the historic Lilacs cabin on beloved Palomar Mt. was a labor of love. I believe you will feel the spirit of the vortex - a place that Native Americans cherished and that attracted city dwellers since the 1800s to seek communion with the natural world.

Why the Owner Chose Palomar Mountain, CA, USA:
I love the lush greenery and the mountain air. I love the experience the seasonal changes. This cabin satisfies my longing for nature and some solitude. Within minutes of arriving I am a better person forgetting the frenzy of city life. This is a place to worship peace and Mother Nature.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
With 2 living rooms upstairs, there is room to spread out. Balcony off the back feels like you are in the tree tops. There are good vibes in this cabin - a wonderful place for family gatherings or reunions with friends. This can be a place for healing and growing enduring relationships.
