Enjoy this beautiful mountain home located in a quiet, wooded neighborhood two miles east of Julian's historic township. Our architecturally-designed vacation home sits high in a family of oaks 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 and attractive lighting that reflect the ambience of Julian's art community. Artwork lines a stairway that leads to a guest sleeping loft. Our home is pleasingly furnished with many new, comfortable pieces that include a queen-size bed, a double-size bed, and two full-size sleeping futons in the livingroom. We provide the firewood for the wood-burning stove. The home has central heating, central air conditioning, ceiling fans, and many windows for natural air circulation. There is plenty of private parking on this spacious property.
High speed DSL Internet sevice is now available for your personal computer.
Free phone service is available throughout the U.S.A.
Well-mannered pet dogs are welcome with the owner's prior approval. Our property now has a large, fenced (six feet high) area in back of the house where guests can exercise their dogs in an enclosed environment. Dogs may also stay inside the house with their owners. Dogs should be current on their immunizations.
You can use the front deck for outside dining and bird-watching. You may also be visited by our local wildlife families of turkeys, deer, raccoons, bobcats, and foxes. Bring your cameras!
Located at an elevation of 4,450 feet above sea level, the historic gold mining town of Julian is located one hour east of coastal San Diego. San Diegans and out-of-town visitors enjoy its unique proximity to state, national and county parks with plentiful hiking and riding trails. The picturesque Anza Borrego Desert is situated just to the east of us. Beautiful Lake Cuyamaca, available for fishing enthusiasts, lies twenty minutes south. You can use your Julian location to take day trips to these nearby attractions throughout the year.
Situated within areas of apple orchards, Julian is well-known for its delicious apple pies, wine-tasting, sense of history, romantic surroundings, and old goldmine. The township has maintained its historic buildings, that now house good restaurants, boutiques, and old-time melodrama entertainment.
I am a San Diego County native who has recently retired from a career as a community college counselor. I have also enjoyed careers in secondary school teaching and social work with the County of San Diego. My family and I enjoy staying at this beautiful vacation home, where we celebrate special family occasions and holidays. We love the beautiful Julian area, and the unique historic quality of Julian's old gold-mining town.
Nada Grigsby purchased this house in 2005
I fell in love with this property when it was on the market early in the 2000s. I had accompanied a close friend who was looking to purchase this home for retirement. The wooded neighborhood, proximity to town, and beautiful house interior left a great impression on me! When the home became available for purchase in 2005, I bought the house and the vacant, adjacent 1/3 acre in back of the house.
The Lovely Julian Mountain Retreat has a unique, beautiful interior. The tongue-in grove pine paneling, vaulted living room ceiling, and open beam kitchen ceiling give this home a one-of-a- kind elegance. Although we have neighbors, the home is quite private. The home is situated on a hillside, and looks out into the surrounding trees. My rental guests and my visiting relatives enjoy watching wildlife from the front deck of the house. We love to watch the many migrating birds, turkeys, and deer.
As an owner, I have continued to upgrade this home's quality and comfort. I had a circular drive added several years ago, and added a new parking area. The home was recently painted, and has had a new furnace installed. Our central air conditioning is a great asset on warmer days.
"We had a great time during our stay in Julian. The town is wonderful, and we really enjoyed your cabin (I love knotty pine!!!). Thank you so much for letting us stay here! We will definitely come back here next time we stay in the area."
My family and I had a great time at this very nice house.
Its nice and close to town. We will stay there again.
The house was very cozy and served as a great place to stay. We were in town for a wedding and had a great weekend. Pretty much everything that you need is supplied for you, the beds were comfy. The location of the house is great, close to town and in a mountainous setting, woodpeckers and all!
The only thing I think needs to be in the description is the steep gravel driveway. It wasn't a problem for us but if there was an elderly person, or wheelchair bound this could have caused a problem.
If in the area again we would definitely rent this house again!
I was there with my family weeks ago. 1st impression was how cozy the interior was. The house was very clean and had everything we needed. It's in a quite neighborhood and easy to get to Main street. Will definitely go back again.
Cabin was well furnished, stocked, and clean. Property is a short drive from downtown Julian in a quiet neighborhood. Property owner was quick to reply to any requests.
The TV in the livingroom has HDMI so you can easily plug in a device to watch streaming movies or TV. The TV is small. Maybe 19". I won't deduct a star because I didn't ask and we only wanted to watch a movie one night. Wifi was good enough to watch in bed. :)
Can't wait to visit again!
The cabin is beautiful & quite. It's in a gorgeous location within miles of the main town of Julian. It was such a great weekend getaway! There was enough parking and space for 6 of us girls even sharing one bathroom. We would definitely stay here again in the future. It was perfect!
This cabin is very clean and well organized. The space inside is plenty for a family stay and for a hangout in the living room.
I also liked that there are some spectacular views just a short walk away from cabin, which make for a really nice walk with the dog at night or during day.
The backyard with the fence is also great to let your dog roam around freely. The location is just a short drive to Julien downtown street, which is very convenient. There are several hikes nearby, and one in particular, that I visited, has beautiful views and many free roaming cows.
The fact that charcoal for the patio BBQ and firewood for the living room fireplace is provided is a nice bonus.
I would recommend this cabin for your stay near Julien.
