L'HERITAGE: Enter the Great Room with kitchen, game/dining table, island bar, daybed (sleeps 2), and leather seating in tv area. Queen bedroom has large closet, and views of guest house garden from two large windows. Bath room has a super size waterfall shower and built in sauna. Our guests enjoy the decorating, amenities, extra linens, convenience of the kitchen with all the necessities for light cooking including an Advantium oven and full sized refrigerator, and glass cook-top.

AMENITIES: Since moving here to our 'Dream House' 6 years ago we have made lots of upgrades to the home, guest house, and landscaping, and have been featured on both the Fallbrook Home Tour of 2012, and the Fallbrook Garden Tour of 2014. 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. Walk the private rock lined paths on the 5 acres of oak trees, or on the neighboring roads. Or use the large flat bermuda lawn area for bocce ball, croquet, or playing fetch with your dog. (Bringing a pet is a possibility for discussion prior to booking.)

NEARBY ATTRACTIONS: We are close to Carlsbad, Oceanside, Encinitas, the Cedros District in Solana Beach, Del Mar and other beaches. Inland, you'll be able to drive to Palm Springs and other desert communities. Temecula Wine Country and Old Town are only 20 minutes up the 15 Freeway. You can go South to San Diego attractions such as Sea World, Wild Animal Park, Balboa Park, Coronado etc.

FALLBROOK: We have lots of local hiking trails and many enjoy the quaint little village of Fallbrook complete with a 'Vintage Main Street' experience, or the dining possibilities of Bonsall River Village or Temecula. We get lots of repeat guests with local ties. We may soon go independent and specialize in monthly rental. Write down our contact info for future visits, even if we are booked this time.

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 San Diego County

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 property. Luxurious, comfortable, and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

My wife, 5-year-old son, and I had a great stay at L'Heritage. The property itself is gorgeous! We felt as if we were staying on a country estate, with the beautifully landscaped garden paths, terraced yard, and large green lawn. The pool is easily accessible right outside the rental unit. The rental itself is in a converted and luxuriously appointed pool house with all of the amenities you would want and is situated right behind the main house. The floor plan is open and inviting, and we enjoyed a quiet afternoon just sitting by the pool and in the cool, comfortable living room.

We were in town for a wedding in Temecula, and at first I was a little concerned about the distance from town. However, the property is close to the freeway, and it was a quick 15-minute trip up the 15 right to downtown Temecula. You're also about 10 minutes from the quaint town of Fallbrook, which has several nice restaurants and a pleasant small-town feel. The tradeoff in distance from town was far outweighed by the benefit of staying somewhere quiet and peaceful, surrounded by rolling hills and (I think) avacado orchards. The whole area was beautiful. Coming from the city, we were thrilled to see stars and hear crickets at night!

Finally, Karen was a gracious and attentive host. It's obvious that she cares a great deal about her guests. Highly recommended!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place to stay. More specifically, it is beautifully decorated, well maintained, clean, peaceful, quiet, spacious and has amazing views. The surrounding landscape is incredibly scenic. This is a guest house we will rent again on our next trip to San Diego.

Karen and Lance were extremely welcoming, warm and generous. Karen's attention to detail made us feel more like family, rather than strangers renting the guest house. Karen took the time to stock the guest house with fresh fruit and made sure the fridge had just what we could need for breakfast the next day, in the event we did not get to shop for groceries. Karen even took the time to make sure the guest house had the incidentals and toiletries we may need, in the event that we had forgotten anything.

I would recommend this home a thousand percent and have already started using word-of-mouth to tell my friends about this gem.

We also cannot forget to mention how in love our daughter fell with beautiful, friendly and playful Luna. By the end of our 4-night stay, we only had 1 regret....that we had to leave at all.

Thank you Karen, Lance and Luna for your kindness, generosity and hospitality. You made us feel welcomed in every way and we look forward to our next visit to your beautiful home.

With warm regards,

Neil, Norma and Elizabeth Nelson

Great place! Great people!

  • 5 of 5

What can I begin to say about this vacation rental that hasn't already been said?

Let me start by saying it's all true!

Karen and Lance are amazing and wonderful people. The rental is absolutely beautiful. Well decorated and clean. My husband and I fell in love with the place from the moment we drove up. We were greeted with a warm welcome from Karen, Lance and Luna. Oh Luna. Our Elizabeth fell in love with Luna at first sight.

The rental is centrally located, just about 30 minutes from Legoland and even less time to Oceanside beach. We were so comfortable while there. So much so, that we often slept in much later than we probably should have. I could go on and on about how wonderful and peaceful our stay was, but if you take anything away from this review, let it be this...

Karen left no details out. From providing us with things needed for breakfast, down to the toiletries and incidentals. To say that we were pleased, would be an understatement. To say that we will return again some day to this rental would prove to be more accurate.

Thank you Karen and Lance and please give Luna a back scratch and belly rub from Elizabeth.

A Nature Lovers Paridise

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful stay at your charming guest house. It was perfect in every way possible. The property was so very beautiful just walking and taking in all the gorgeous verities of flowers and plants was amazing. You can take pride in the hard work it took and continues to take to get your place so beautiful. Its truly heaven to ones eyes. Thanks so much for the great vacation the piece and quiet your estate gave us was so very needed. Best weeks vacation we have had. We will be back next year as Daisy misses Luna. Take care and thanks again for such a wonderful break from all the problems in life and being able to take a week and just enjoy being alive enjoying nature and having a fun time for a change. Gene, Deborah and of course the Boss Daisy

Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came to Fallbrook for our sons wedding this May. After speaking with Karen several times over the phone, I knew this was where I wanted to stay. This property is absolutely amazing. Everything you could possibly need is there, the property is close to major highways, downtown Fallbrook and Temecula. The home is perfect in every way. The gardens are so peaceful and serene. My husband said it was the most relaxing enjoyable place he has ever stayed. I couldn't agree more. Thank you so much Karen and Len for a wonderful enjoyable stay. We can not wait to come back next year.

Fun with the family at a beautiful country estate

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at this amazing home and property in the San Diego County countryside. The rental property is a cute detached guest house across the courtyard from main home and includes all needed amenities for an extended stay away from home. Full kitchen, dining room, comfy bed and stunning views of the hills out each window. Guesthouse was clean and even had some fresh food stocked in the fridge. The property is situated on top of a ridge overlooking a creekbed and the hills of Fallbrook. Beautiful infinity pool, landscaped paths and a large bermuda grass green to let the dogs run loose (yes, that's right they're dog friendly!! - huge plus in my book). Owners Karen and Lance were a pleasure to talk with, and were on top of everything throughout our weekend stay. We brought our 11mo. daughter and our two terrier pups. The dogs had a blast playing on the green with the owner's poodle Luna. They're now best doggie friends and we hope to stay again so they can reunite! All around a great getaway in this secluded part of San Diego County, we hope to return soon! -Justin & Katie
