Overview

San Diego County Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-6)

Enjoy this charming cottage located in a quiet, wooded neighborhood two miles east of Julian's historic township. Our vacation home sits on a spacious, corner lot that has a circular driveway and many mature oak, pine, and cedar trees.

The interior of Cathleen's Country Cottage includes newer hardwood flooring throughout the bedroom, kitchen, dining and living room areas. Our cottage-style windows overlook our surrounding trees. Our cottage is attractively furnished with newer, comfortable pieces that include a queen-size bed in the bedroom, two full-size sleeping futons in the living room, and a single-size sofa sleeper. Our farmhouse-style dining room furniture seats up to six people. We provide firewood for the living room's wood-burning stove. Our cheerful kitchen is equipped with dishes, flatware, and cooking ware. This cottage has air-conditioning, electric heating in each living area and ceiling fans. We provide wireless Internet service and satellite television.

Pet dogs may stay inside the cottage with their owners. Pet dogs may stay with prior approval of the property owner. This vacation home has large, fenced areas to exercise pet dogs on our large, wooded property.

There is plenty of private parking on the property that includes space for recreational vehicles.

You can use the roomy front deck for outside dining, barbecuing, star-gazing, bird-watching, and waving to friendly neighbors who are taking their daily strolls or riding their bicycles. Our trees house many birds, and capture the sounds of beautiful, mountain breezes. You may be visited by our animal neighbors that include turkeys, raccoons, deer, bobcats, and foxes.

This is a great getaway cottage where you can relax and feel that you are really on vacation!

Thank you so much for allowing me and my friends to stay at your Julian cottage. We were overwhelmed when we saw the place. It was so perfect and enchanting. You have a beautiful home, and we are so thankful we found you. I will be recommending you anytime someone is planning another Julian trip.

Perfect for families with pets.

  • 4 of 5

Truly pet friendly. Our dog wasn't just tolerated, she was welcomed. The fenced yard, the cottage layout, the back door for late night dog visits made the stay effortless. The entire property is fenced and gated, so we could enjoy sitting on the deck and night time stargazing without worrying about our dog roaming. She LOVED the trip even more than we did. Thanks, Nada! 😊

It was just what I wanted. Cute, simple and in Julian. Just relaxed, ate and spent time with the dogs.

Nada was very nice and quick to answer text or emails.

Can't wait for a winter stay.

Cozy and comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed the cottage very much. It is comfortable with a lot of character in a very nice, quiet neighborhood. It was a great place to use as a base for going to Julian, Lake Cuyamaca and Anza Borrego. We would definitely consider this location again the next time we come to Julian.

The perfect weekend getaway for the family. I highly recommend it.

  • 5 of 5

The property was large and perfect for pets. The house was beautiful and quaint with an adorable fire place. The bedroom was perfect and even came with a heater. There were towels for showers and coffee provided. The location was only a 4 min drive from town and easy to find. Overall, if you need a weekend getaway from the city, Cathleens Cottage is the one for you.

Cozy and relaxing weekend!

  • 5 of 5

The stay at Cathleen's Cottage was a very enjoyable and relaxing weekend. Nada ensured that everything was ready for me and my family. She had the heater turned on so we would arrive to a warm cozy place and had the porch lights on. Nada even gave me a call the day of arrival to advice me of the heavy fog so I could plan accordingly. Will definitely stay there again and have told friends and family of the place. Thank you for a very enjoyable and relaxing weekend get away.
