There is Direct TV, and Wifi, and no known problem with any cell service provider. We have an exercise room with tv, treadmill, and weights in the (always cool) walkout basement.

We love repeat visitors, Canadian snow birds, and those with ties to our community....waiting for escrow to close etc...

About Karen Eddy

Former midwesterners, we came to So. Ca. to teach. After 40 years in Orange County, we came south to escape the freeways and noise.

Karen Eddy purchased this chateau / country house in 2011

Why Karen Eddy chose Fallbrook

As a former ranch girl in western South Dakota, I was attracted to the acreage, quiet, and rural ambiance. I like being close to city services and shopping, but love our country roads. The best location in Fallbrook.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

We love being so close to so many cool places, yet our 'ranch' seems to be in another quiet world. We love to meet new people but we don't travel much anymore because we're already where we want to be.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lynn and her husband were clean, neat, communicative, and very responsible guests. We enjoyed their visit and would welcome them back at any time.

Wonderful Hosts - Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Karen's charming Fallbrook home surpassed our expectations. The pool home is large and spacious with a nice open layout. Everything we could possibly need was provided for, including fully stocked kitchen. We especially enjoyed the relaxing sauna and hot tub with amazing views. The property is gorgeous and peaceful, with fruit trees and hummingbirds fluttering about.. Karen and Lance were thoughtful hosts, anticipated our needs, and gave us great recommendations for the area. Their standard poodle, Luna, is the sweetest. Karen even made us fresh squeezed orange juice from her citrus trees, which was delicious! They also invited us over for an amazing Christmas dinner after a long hike. Just a couple of examples of the many nice touches these friendly hosts brought to our stay. Highly recommend if you're looking for a relaxing, charming place in beautiful Fallbrook.

Thank you so much Karen, Lance, & Luna! :)

Totally relaxing - Exactly what we needed

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was close to Temecula and wine country. We visited several plant nurseries, checked out Myrtle Creek, and generally toured the area. Karen and Vance were great hosts. They suggested places to visit, warmed the jacuzzi for us , and joined us for dinner using the poolside bar-b-q. The premises are beautiful and the weather was gorgeous. Their dog Luna was fun too!

The only downside is the rental is right across the pool from the owners home, so there is not a lot of privacy

Karen and Lance are wonderful host, their place is prefect for a relaxing time. The gardens and pool beautiful, Luna their standard poodle is so gentle and friendly. Plenty of fresh fruit, coffee and I was lucky to be there when Karen made muffins, coffee and warm muffins a wonderful start to the day. The house has everything you need for the prefect get away. Just a short drive from old town Temecula or the wine country. It was wonderful to sleep with the windows open and not hear traffic, just birds and coyotes. I hope to be back soon. Thank you

A beautiful retreat in the country.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at L' Heritage. The unit is nicely furnished, very spacious, comfortable and had everything we could need for our stay - including a sauna and exercise room and we made good use of both. The setting in the county was beautiful and it was nice to be away from all the traffic and noise of the coast. Yet Temecula is only a short drive and the coast is 20-25 minutes away. Our hosts Karen and Lance were wonderful. When we arrived Karen had just picked some fresh oranges for us from one of the several trees on the property. Thank you Karen and Lance for a wonderful stay. We look forward to visiting again.
