The large open combination living room, dining room, and kitchen feature a wood burning stove that lends cozy heat and ambiance. You'll also love the spacious deck equipped with a propane grill for easy cooking, and nestled among a row of pine and oak trees .

Wildlife is common on the property, with the most frequent visitors being a multitude of colorful birds, squirrels, dear, and even wild turkeys. Bird feeders on the property encourage frequent visits from the local feathered friends.

Bring your warm clothes in the winter months and be ready for a walk through peaceful snow cover trails around the lake.

Great if you don’t mind being off the grid

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay, however an important note, there is no WIFI on the property and the TV only takes DVDs, so come prepared to be off the grid and enjoy the quiet. Overall the beds and bathrooms were very clean and well kept. The kitchen had a few dirty dishes in the cabinets and a portion of the fridge froze one section of our the food we brought. The other disappointing item was we tried to get in for an early check-in, Zora said to simply call that morning and she would let us know but when we left her a voicemail and text she did not return our messages. Other than that we had a great time. We would return if WIFI was installed.

Great location. We'ld gladly return.

  • 4 of 5

Our family loved the size of the house, nice open space. Location near the lake was great. Parking was not the most conducive for a regular car but we managed.

Ahhhh..... so peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home in February 2017. Even though the weather was rainy it didn't dampen our spirits thanks to this amazing home! We enjoyed the beautiful lake view and hiking around the area. It was so nice to stop our hectic lives and soak in the warm fire as we made a puzzle and played cards. The home was much larger than expected and we loved the open feeling it gave us.

Thank you for sharing your home with us. We will definitely be back!

The cabin was very nice, very comfortable, and everything as advertised and more. We had only 1 issue with the propane, it was IMMEDIATELY taken care of. Zora was excellent to work with and we will stay there again!!

Wonderful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This house was the scenic getaway this family of city-folk needed. The house is super clean, with plenty of room for larger families, and our family loved hanging out together in the super comfortable living room.

We woke up to deer in the front yard the first morning, and my kids were able to see wild turkeys the next morning. We also loved feeding the bids off the big deck, including our favorite, hummingbirds, and the bird guide that was in the house was a great resource (Thanks Laura!).

Just minutes from Julian, we were able to get some of the best apple pie and cider money can buy, while also getting to enjoy the small-town feel. One of the things the adults enjoyed the most was being able to disconnect and enjoy the peace, quiet, and sheer beauty of the area, as you are just a short walk away from Lake Cuyamaca.

Believe it not, the drive into San Diego to enjoy the beach, zoo, or safari park is very manageable, so we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again, even if we were making plans in the city. However, next time, we plan to spend more time at the house, enjoying the comfort, beauty, and quiet!
