SACRED MOUNTAIN RETREAT - A PRIVATE RESIDENCE

Julian Estate Rental Photos and Description

Main Cottage, Guest Cottage, Rustic Barn (6 bedrooms/3 full baths/2 halfbaths

Sacred Mountain Retreat in Julian is an enchanting and unique property that offers many exclusive amenities. There is no other like it!

As you drive onto the property, you will find an enchanting country retreat on 8 acres with all of the luxuries needed for a relaxing stay. With three separate structures, everyone will have the privacy they desire. With all of the open gathering areas, the property brings you together to share time and make memories.

The Main Cottage offers a beautiful, Viking kitchen with farmhouse sink, a breakfast area and dining area with farm table and benches. The Main Cottage has three bedrooms; a large master bedroom with a jacuzzi tub & full bathroom, a generous, sunny bedroom with 2 full beds and a comfy third bedroom with queen bed and sliding doors to the secret garden. There is a lovley full bathroom in the hallway that is meant for sharing. All rooms have flat screen TV's and Egyptian Cotton bedding for drifting off to sleep. The living room is highlighted by the wood burning pot-bellied stove, rocking chair and sofa bed that sleeps 2.

Just outside of the Main Cottage is a spectacular deck with a bbq, gorgeous dining table & chairs with sweeping views of the valley floor & Vulcan Mountain. If you look left you get a glimpse of the stunning pool and jacuzzi just a hop, skip and a jump down the left staircase; look to the right and you take in a view of the gorgeous Rustic Barn, pergola, dollhouse, garden and Vulcan Mountain that is reached by the stairs on the right.

Next to the Main House is the cozy two story cottage that offers two separate units for privacy; one at ground level that sleeps 2 people in a Cal King bed and one upstairs that sleeps 2 people in a Cal King bed; both have their own private half baths, sitting areas & flat screen tv's.

As you walk down the steps from the Main Cottage, a vine-draped pergola appears with a family dining table fit for a feast. Take in the stunning views, watch families of wild turkeys and bunnies as you sit and relax over-looking the lush green lawn. As you stroll down the hill to the Old Rustic Barn, you take in the expanse of the property that is within walking distance of town yet at the same time far away from it all.

The Rustic Barn is an absolute gem! The entire ground floor has an expansive deck that runs the length of the barn, perfect for wildlife watching and star gazing. There is a spa nestled into the corner of the deck where you can take a dip and relax during the day or star gaze at night. Towels are provided in the French laundry basket for you to dry off. The Barn has a Viking kitchen, large dining area perfect for celebrations and group meals, a stunning full bathroom with a pebbled stone floor, wood burning fireplace, living room/tv area with flat screen tv and sofa bed that sleeps 2. The barn doors at both ends of the barn slide open to let the outside in and make the bottom floor a playground for all to enjoy. The wall of french doors opens up so you can enjoy the view, watch kids play or just let the fresh mountain air in. Venture up the spiral staircase to a cozy sitting area, King & Queens beds in a space that says, 'Come on up and stay for awhile!'

The pool/spa just down from the Main deck are perfect for a summers day or frosty winter night. With Smith & Hawken teak lounge chairs and tables, French laundry baskets full of thick, colorful pool towels, water toys, a pool bathroom and kitchen area as well as an outside pool shower, you will be invited to play or relax...or maybe both...as you enjoy the towering oak trees and birds that visit in abundance.

The property is child friendly but NOT child proof and is also pet friendly. There is wi-fi so if you choose to, you can stay connected.

This July 2013, we purchased 60 acres right across from our private driveway where there are trails on which you can mountain bike, hike, ride horses and explore the never-ending nature of Julian.

Sacred Mountain Retreat is truly charming and enchanting. The memories you make here will be with you for a lifetime! We invite you to come and stay!

In early November, I took a group of fathers and their 8 year old kids for a weekend getaway at Sacred Mountain Retreat. We were looking to escape from our hectic day-to-day lives and bond with our children in a new, comfortable and relaxed setting. We wanted them to get an experience unlike what they are used to at home, and SMR created a magical weekend for all of us.

The drive from San Diego was beautiful, as we drove through rural areas and farm properties on the way to Julian. Awesome views that transported us into a different place. The property itself is absoutely gorgeous! It is a unique estate located on acres and acres of land. Rolling hills all around. Views of mountains, hiking trails, horses all around. After coming through the rustic gate, you see the buildings of the main house, the rustic barn, and cottages. There were beautiful lawns, landscaping, trees, decks, and a big swimming pool that connected it all together. The dads and kids were hanging throughout the property. Despite having almost 30 folks at the retreat, there was plenty of room for us to roam around with our children and connect. The property was totally peaceful and made us feel free and alive!

The living areas were top notch! Rooms were nice and comfortable, comparable to a 5 star resort. The cooking areas were large and has the latest appliances, which made cooking for our gang a blast. One afternoon, we explored the various hiking trails behind the property and went on a horse back ride, as there is a company that operates a stable on the property. At night, we setup the projector and screen in the horse coral area and enjoyed movie night under the stars. We spent late nights around the firepit roasting marshmellows. A unique experience!

The team that manages the property was amazing! Marti, the owner, showed me the property a few weeks prior to the trip. She was very accomodating and wanted to make this a special weekend for us. I had the pleasure of working with her manager Terri leading up to the event, on the various details. When our crew arrived, everything was absolutely perfect! Terri was checking in on us throughout the weekend, to make sure that we were okay. Incredible customer service! She treated us like we were their friends and not just a group "renting their place". Very personal and attentive service.

The property and weekend far exceeded our expectations. Thank you! We can't wait for the next trip to SMR.

Owner's Response: We are pleased that you, the other Dad’s and your kids had a great time at Sacred Mountain Retreat. You had some amazing ideas that were firsts for us like screening a movie outside! What fun! All of the adventures that you had and the magic that you felt are exactly what we wished for you and your group. We are happy to know that SMR delivered!

One the questions is if the listing and photo descriptions accurately described the location and I emphatically say, "NO!" There really is no possible way to describe this idyllic retreat space with words and photos. From the moment we walked through the gate, met Marti, Terri and Audrey, we were absolutely blown away by Sacred Mountain. Everything was well-kept, immaculate, and as accommodating as any 5-star location. The few questions we had were always answered right away. We had a fabulous meal at Jeremy's on the Hill and the world-famous Julian apple pie season was going strong--much pie eating was done by all of us. We loved the location so much, we are planning to return next year!!

Owner's Response: Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the glowing review. I knew the moment I met you ladies when you came to preview the property that we were kindred spirits. It was an absolute pleasure to have you enjoy time at SMR and to now call you friends! We look forward to your stay at SMR again this year, 2014!
