The Yellow Cottage of La Jolla is a charming historic Victorian cottage, only three blocks from a semi-private beach, and a three minute drive to the well known La Jolla Cove. Galusha B. Grow built the cottage in 1895 as a summer vacation home. In 1980, it was relocated and renovated by a local historian and her husband. The cottage has been featured in Better Homes and Gardens magazine and many other papers and periodicals. The Yellow Cottage is a beautiful example of period renovation combined with modern convenience.
