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 is a one of a kind private ranch. This sanctuary is within walking distance of the quaint, historical town of Julian. The private, gated estate provides intimacy and tranquility for those that feel the need to escape from every day life and surrender to nature at its best. The multiple gathering places invite you to feel fully in the presence of one another. Sacred Mountain Retreat offers majestic views of Volcan Mountain, our own Valley of the Moon and unparalleled stargazing. This property takes you back to a more peaceful time and place.

MAIN COTTAGE

The charming, ivy covered main cottage is comprised of three bedrooms and two bathrooms. There are hardwood floors and French windows throughout. The cottage has a sunny, fully equipped Viking kitchen with solid cherry countertops and a large European farm sink. The living area offers down-filled seating and a wood burning stove. The sumptuous master suite has a California King bed, separate sitting area and a private spa tub. All natural materials and white, crisp Egyptian cotton sheets ensure a peaceful nights rest. The bright and airy secondary bedroom has two full beds and ample closet space. The third bedroom has a queen bed and French doors that open out onto the enchanting, secret garden.

GUEST COTTAGE

Steps away from the main cottage is a vine covered, two-story guesthouse. The individual suites are fully equipped with refridgerators, coffee makers and half baths. The downstairs unit has a fantastic four-poster queen bed, farmhouse table, and private patio. The Zen inspired upstairs unit boasts a King bed and private sitting area.

RUSTIC BARN

The Wine Country inspired rustic barn is a treasure. An open floor plan, centered by a custom Californian walnut table, invites you to dine with friends and family. The Viking kitchen is well equipped and a wood-burning fireplace is featured in the sitting area. The wraparound deck with hot tub is ideal for stargazing or yoga. A spiral staircase accesses the bedroom upstairs, which has a California king bed as well as a queen bed.

THE GROUNDS

A long, private driveway, canopied by low hanging pistache trees, is your access to the gated property. There is a large Brazilian, rosewood deck in front of the main cottage with expansive vistas across the meadows to Volcan Mountain, encouraging guests to relax and enjoy the serenity. This private residence also provides a 40’ saline pool and spa, Smith & Hawken teak furniture and a secluded entertainment area with barbeque. Half way up the stairs to the main deck there is a pool house, which has a stainless steel refrigerator/freezer, farmhouse sink, serving area and bathroom. Outside the pool house is an incredible outdoor rain head shower. The middle tier is home to the pool and an expansive, sweeping lawn area, flanked on one side by a grape and wisteria covered pergola. A hand made dining table underneath seats 14. The seasonal organic vegetable garden is in front of the sweet playhouse and wild French lavender bed. The lower tier has a horse barn, corral and sheltered pathways that meander through the ancient oaks. Abundant wildlife such as deer and wild turkey share these pathways with you.

We welcome you to Sacred Mountain Retreat.

Wonderful wedding weekend at Sacred Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5
From the moment I stepped on the property, I was blown away by its beauty! When we arrived, there was a pie on the table and a sweet note from the owner, Marti, and the property manager, Terri. Marti and Terri were beyond accommodating and everything was just perfect. Everything was so well maintained and tasteful. The bedding was very comfortable and the main house was well stocked with pots and pans--everything you'd need to cook for a group.

We rented the property for a long weekend to host a small wedding as well as sleep all immediate family and wedding party. We had 14 people staying and between the three houses on the property, there was more than enough space. We ate our meals under the pergola, watched the sunrise on the deck, swam in the pool, played croquet on the lawn--it was idyllic. The property really is a retreat and it was perfect for a quiet DIY wedding. The backdrop of Vulcan Mountain was so beautiful that we didn't even need any decorations for the wedding. (We hiked the mountain the day before the wedding with our wedding party--I'd definitely recommend it!)

The property truly made our wedding so easy and perfect! My only regret was not renting the property for an additional day to just enjoy it before we started setting up for the wedding. All of our family and friends staying at the house are already talking about using the property in the future for reunions.

Many thanks to Marti and Terri!

Just like home...but better!

  • 5 of 5
Ahhh, Sacred Mountain is like a cozy helping of home, the kind of home you dream of! The accommodations are ideal, from the comfortable beds to the glowing candles...it is the quintessential place to retreat whether you are writing a novel or planning a reunion, there is not one thing you need to bring with you other than food, it is all there. As for food, the nearby stores suffice and an apple pie is a short walk away.

Nature is in abundance here! My favorite thing to do at Sacred Mountain is to grab a down pillow off the bed, prop it on the long bench on the deck, lay down with a bottle of wine on the built in ottoman, and read a book! You will quickly discover as I did, you are not alone. Birds of every color fly directly overhead, bunnies and squirrels scurry by, and deer gave up and watch you read. It is the perfect place to doze off!

At night, don't forget to heat up one of the amazing spas and star gaze!

Oh, and the owner, Marti, is just as charming as the home.

Awesome Place

  • 5 of 5
This is our second year staying at Marti's home. We absolutely love the property. It is perfect for a large group retreat. The house is located a mile or so outside of downtown Julian. There are hiking trails, a pool and a hot tub, and the most wildlife you'll see in So-Cal. We hope to be able to continue our retreats on her property for many years to come!

Stunning 40th birthday celeb

  • 5 of 5
I decided to invite my family to Sacred Mountain Retreat for my 40th birthday celebration. It exceeded by far my expectations but most of all, it amazed my guests.
Everything was cozy, well set, beautiful views, simply the perfect place to spend time with family and friends.
There is everything you need at the reach of your arm. Books, tools, charcoil, towels, games, movies, you name it, its there. Totally equiped! The decoration? Perfect. The barn rules! The pool and spa more than great!
Terri and Marti were always helpful, since the beginning to the end. Marti thanks for that extra mile you went there for us!! We really did enjoy it so much.
I will go back for sure and I've already recommended Sacred Mountain Retreat to my friends. Money not just well spent...a great investment on family memories.

Just gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Sacred Mountain Retreat was just perfect. The property is gorgeous and has every amenity one can think of. We were celebrating a special birthday and even though we got lots of rain during the weekend we enjoyed our family time and the peaceful atmosphere. We certainly appreciated the generosity of the owner, who extended our stay for one whole day so our children could enjoy the swimming pool and the beautiful weather once the rain had stopped.
It is just a few minutes away from Julian, a beautiful historic town, famous for their delicious apple pies and there are a couple of wineries down the road that produce pretty nice wine.
Our family would love to go back in the near future!

Our Perfect Intimate Summer Wedding

  • 5 of 5
Before we really get into this I want everyone to know that words or pictures will not help you fully understand the beauty and connection to nature you get from SMR. You can go anywhere for a 5 star hotel stay with some of the nicest accomidations but still have to go out of your way for a breath taking view while your enjoying your coffee. Again, words can't express our experience at SMR.
My wife and I really enjoy the outdoors and all of natures beauty. So naturally SMR was perfect for our wedding site. Even knowing what to expect our experience was amazing. From the comforts of good sized plush beds to the relaxing hot jacuzzi. Lets not forget the temperature controlled salt water pool.
For all of our guests Julian Ca was at least a 2 1/2 hour drive but I assured them that once they arrived into town they would be pleased. Then I told them once they arrived to SMR to be prepared for a spectacular afternoon and evening.
Not a single guest of ours was disappointed. Everyone kept saying they had never experienced a wedding as intimate and beautiful with such an amazing backdrop view. For my wife and I it was perfect but knowing that our guests were also really taking it in and enjoying this day as much as we did, theres no high quite like that.
Our ceremony took place on the main deck with the amazing view of the Volcan Mountain. We held our cocktail hour around the pool while we took pictures all around the property. Especially in the Secret Garden. Our reception was set up on the lawn while my wife and I sat under the pergola for the evening. Almost forgot about our rehearsal dinner. The Rustic Barn was a perfect setting for our wedding party and parents to share a special dinner and evening. With all the doors open wide we could not only feel the cool breeze coming through as we ate and shared some good stories but we had an amazing view as the sun was starting to go down. Its an amazing lasting memory for me personally that I will never forget. The next morning we all decided to have breakfast together again in the barn and several deer came close to graze. It was pretty spectacular to be able to share that with my wife and our new big family.
There is not a single bad thing I have to say about Sacred Mountain Retreat. This is surely the beginning of a tradition for us as we start a new chapter in our lives. We will definitely be coming back and remembering our perfect intimate summer wedding.
