Why Dave Henderson chose Palomar Mountain

From the moment we drove up to this property we fell in love with the entire package. I felt relaxed and could not get over the fact we were just a few miles from the city. I had an instant feeling of peace. The birds are a joy to watch as they sign and play. Squirrels play in and out of the trees, the views are captivating. I didn't even own the property yet knew this is a special place. We cherish every moment on top of the mountain.

Only the best for our guest, upgraded linens, blankets, throws and towels. Newly remodeled for elegance within and ruggedness outside.

Forget the City, leave the electronics behind. Let your best vacation be the simplest. But of course, Wifi and Direct TV is available.

What makes this cabin unique

We upgraded the cabin with new flooring, paint, comfortable furniture and nice rugs. We purchased all new furniture and stocked the kitchen well. This is not your normal rugged cabin We modernized inside and enjoy the rugged outdoors. We continue to upgrade the property and are currently finishing an extra studio to house more guest. Mountain properties are not easy to maintain for it can look beautiful outside one day and the nature drops its leaves, making it look like you have never cleaned the area. Either way it is beautiful. We are continuing to improve this property and have a pride of ownership. We look forward to sharing this gem with others who appreciate getting out of the city and unwinding in nature.

Horrible night mare in freezing cabin, locked out and misled and no cell phone service

  • 1 of 5

I received no real directions to the cabin and had to turn around and head back home because I couldn't find it. This address is not on map quest. I found it the next day, but Denise gave me the wrong code and I couldn't get in the door. I was outside in the freezing weather with my elderly parents trying to figure out which cabin on her property to go in. I tried the code in all the doors and it did not work. There is no cell phone service in the area, so we drove to the market to use their phone. When I called Denise I did receive a new door code from her. But she hung up on me, and wouldn't answer, after I told her I looked in the cabin and saw an unmade bed and cement floor. When I finally got in the cabin, it was very cold inside and the furnace did not work There was no light in the bathroom. No heat at all in the back bed room. I slept on the floor in front of the fire place and put wood in it all night. I was really scared all night for my parents because it was so cold. Only one space heater worked in the cabin. When I turned on the clothes dryer to heat up a sweater, half the lights and the TV went out. I went outside and turned fuse on. Finally, the long night over and we left that morning even though we had another night we paid for. I sent her a message that we left the cabin and were not returning. She did not reply. In all, we only spent 1 night out of 4 nights that we paid for. The owner of this cabin, Denise Yeager, could care less if we found her cabin, if we got into it, and worse if we froze to death while there.

Owner's Response: Merilyn booked our cabin during her kitchen remodel. Driving instruction were sent two days prior to their arrival, and posted on the web site for their view once booked. We sent a second message with wifi code and the best place to make a phone call on the mountain. Day one, Merilyn contacted us to confirm directions. We asked where she was coming from and sent a very detailed text with exact directions and landmarks. She was unable to arrive day 1 due to last minute appt. with her contractor. Day 2 received a message that they would not be arriving because her father did not want to go and she could not leave him alone. Day 3 received a phone call while they were driving. I confirm they were headed the right direction and worked with her to make sure she felt comfortable with the drive. Thirty minutes later I received a call that the code did not work. I apologized and gave her a different code. It was a pleasant conversation and besides that, I would never hang up on anyone. We have one cabin and a garage that is being converted into a studio. The web site clearly shows the picture of the cabin with the exact look of all rooms. Now that I have read her review, I believe she was trying to get into the studio. A bed was delivered the weekend before that has not been set up yet. The studio has a different code from the cabin. In regards to the cabin, we have working space heaters in every room of the cabin plus a wood burning stove "fireplace" that heats the entire cabin. We are proud of the fact that the fireplace is all set up for each guest to light for an instant fire when they arrive. We also supply lots of fire wood. If there was a problem with the circuit breaker then I could see why the heaters plugged into the effected area would not have initially worked. We have had a very warm December 75 degrees on the day of their arrival. Day 4 received a text that they tidied up and were leaving to not return for the final night. There was no indication that they were unhappy until this review. I believe they needed to be closer to their remodel. I am proud that both our housekeeper and handyman both live on the mountain. I pay extra to make sure there is always someone available if a situation arises. This give us the security that any issue can be handled efficiently. I trust that with our record of 5 star reviews you as a potential guest can see that we strive to give you the best experience. Denise

Couldn't have had a more perfect stay at the little red cabin. Communication with Denise was fantastic. She was just a quick message away if we needed anything. The cabin was fully stocked, cozy and well decorated. The first evening, we were serenaded by the organ player next door as we sat by the fire. The music was emphatic and a bit haunting, but in a good, sitting by a campfire in the woods at night kind of way. They didn't play too late into the night and we all enjoyed the eerie experience :)

It was nice to escape the cities and coasts for something new. We enjoyed chopping wood and building fire, hiking the small trails around the cabin, relaxing with good friends and spotting wildlife (we saw a bobcat!).

Everyone loved their stay. Coming back to the little red cabin next year in definitely in the cards. Thanks Denise for the wonderful memories!
