Thank you so much for our weekend stay at your cottage! That is a really wonderful place to be and we enjoyed it very much! It's a pretty and comfortable cottage. It feels relaxing and pleasant just to be in it. It's roomy enough that we thought it would be lots of fun to go again with several friends and make use of the extra beds, refrigerator, stove, cupboards, closets, dishes, etc., for a weekend party, or a weeklong family reunion. But, it isn't too big for two and feels very cozy and friendly! The many lace curtained windows, provide soft, cheery, tree filtered light, the warm tones of the beautiful wood floors and the little touches, add to the charm of the cottage. It's been nicely cared for and is in good repair for a 1924 cottage, and is so tidy and clean! Incidentally, because your cottage was built in 1924, we enjoyed discovering other buildings from 1924, in the town, and got more interested in the local history. We felt more like we were part of Julian after just a weekend, and have an increased desire to help maintain the historic buildings, open spaces and simple, country charm of the place. The rocking chairs and fire in the front room of the cottage were greatly enjoyed, and we appreciated the many heaters that kept the temperature just right on the cold mights we were having that week. With the birds softly singing, and the weather so sunny and pleasant in the morning, we were able to enjoy the porch for breakfast. Around midday, the porch was the perfect place to share a relaxing afternoon, which we extended into a deep sleep siesta in that comfortable bed in the bedroom. We've been to the nearby observatories, so we already knew the sky's reputation for exceptional clarity, without much glare from the city lights, so we knew we'd be in for a treat when it came to star watching. As hoped, the nights were clear of clouds and the stars were plentiful and beautiful. Sitting on the porch watching them in that fresh air and the friendly quietness of the sparsely populated area, was uplifting and fun. We even had a few shooting stars!
