Julian House Rental Photos and Description

Two Bedrooms + Living room Futons Sleep 4 to 8; one bath; Laundry Room

Enjoy this beautiful mountain home located in a quiet, wooded neighborhood two miles east of Julian's historic township. Our artfully-designed vacation home sits high in a family of oak trees, just steps away from panoramic desert views. Experience a sense of living in the trees while you relax to the sounds of gentle mountain breezes!

The home's knotty-pine interior includes a dramatic vaulted ceiling, many windows, hardwood floors, and attractive lighting that reflect the ambiance of Julian's art community. Artwork lines a stairway that leads to a guest sleeping loft. You can use the front deck for outside dining and bird-watching.

This home features a fully-equipped kitchen and laundry room. We have local phone service, central satellite television, stereo, and VCR/DVD/CD players. We provide clean towels and bed linens. There is plenty of private parking on the property.

We are located near state, national, and county parks with plentiful hiking and riding trails

Wild Life Photo Opportunities!: Bring your cameras to capture the beauty of the Julian area and its surrounding park lands. There is an abundance of wild turkeys, deer, migrating birds, and foxes. There is also the Julian Wolf Preserve. Julian has abundant spring wild flowers.

QUIET AND BEAUTIFUL AND COMFORTABLE

  • 5 of 5
My friend and I loved our stay at this cabin in the trees, as did my dog. It was quiet except for the occasional bird sound. And speaking of birds, we saw several that were new to us -- Acorn Woodpecker and Cedar Waxwing (I think). The cabin is very comfortable to hang out in, with everything you need to cook, a TV that gets many channels, and wifi. My cell phone couldn't find a tower, but that's a plus, not a minus. The neighborhood is very interesting to walk around in, with spectacular views from the top of the hill.

BEST PLACE IN JULIAN FOR A GETAWAY!!!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I found out about this little gem of a cabin and fell in love with the pictures alone from this website. The day we arrive our expectations were definitely exceeded, because the charm and the “at home” feel of the cabin filled our hearts and made the start of our weekend getaway the best. The way this cabin is set up is amazing, and provides all the creature comforts of home with wifi access, satellite television, and many movies ready to watch. The cabin is nicely tucked into a quiet neighborhood that is quite easy to locate using a gps or mobile phone. During our stay we invited our family up for a barbeque and found that we had everything we needed between the charcoal grill (charcoal provided) and the stocked kitchen. We couldn’t have found a better place to stay, then this “lovely mountain retreat”. We would recommend this place to anyone who wants to get away for a romantic weekend or a family vacation, there is plenty of room to sleep 8 and then some. The owner of this beautiful retreat is so accommodating and nice, and we look forward to coming back or checking out her other Julian cottage VRBO Listing #162788. We know that no matter where we stay, Nada will provide the best experience possible for her guests!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your beautiful review. Your detailed description of the cabin and its accommodations is very helpful and accurate. This beautiful home is very comfortable, and located in a wooded, Julian residential neighborhood. It is conveniently close to town. It is a perfect spot for a short getaway, or an extended stay.
Looking forward to your repeat stay, at either the Lovely Julian Mountain Retreat or Cathleen's Country Cottage (listing 162788)!

Our beautiful vacation home is very comfortable, clean, and conveniently located within two miles of Julian's historic town. There are many wildlife-viewing opportunities in our wooded, residential neighborhood. Many of our guests have taken pictures of deer, migrating birds, and bobcats. We recommend that rental guests bring their cameras.

PERFECT WEEKEND GETAWAY.

  • 5 of 5
I can't say enough about this place. I knew it was going to be a great stay when I first called the owner to make a reservation. She was extremely friendly and making a reservation was fast and easy. The property had everything we were looking for: pet friendly, close to downtown Julian yet it still felt secluded, wood burning stove, and all the cooking equipment needed (kitchen and BBQ). When we arrived the house was very clean and inviting. Our weekend included a few trips to downtown Julian and Wynola for shopping and pie and exploring the outdoors with our dogs. The house was perfect and is offered at a VERY fair price. I highly recommend this place and would definitely stay here again. Thank you!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Our comfortable vacation home is conveniently close to town. We are in a wooded, residential neighborhood that is ideal for taking walks and enjoying Julian's mountain scenery.
