Serenity in the Woods is a hand hewn log cabin perched on 2 acres of wooded hilltop.
Just 4 miles outside of the Historic Town of Julian, and an hour's drive east of San Diego, CA.
Julian is a special place. Before we owned this cabin now known as Wattsville , my wife and I would sneak away from our busy lives in Orange County (just south of Los Angeles) and within about two hours, we'd be completely transported. The beautiful last hour of the drive settles you into it all. It's as if this expanse of the wild west has remained nearly untouched by modern culture. Towering oak and maple trees, rolling hills, moss-tinged boulders, scattered fields where cattle & horses graze, wild turkey & whitetail deer let you know you're definitely not in the city anymore... and seemingly endless hiking trails stretch out into the mountains.
Just a few miles from our cabin, the cozy historic town of Julian offers some great little restaurants (Romanos), it's famous locally grown & baked apple pie (Mother's Apple Pie!) and the kind of classic western town aura you'd think was long gone.
