About Jim & Teresa McCarthy
We both live and work in San Diego County. We love it here in beautiful Southern California. We have 6 children and a bunch of grandkids too! Some of our favorite things to do are hiking, bird watching, star gazing and cooking. We get to do these things every time we're on the mountain.
Jim & Teresa McCarthy purchased this Chalet in 2013
Why Jim & Teresa McCarthy chose Palomar Mountain
We had often visited the local mountains when our children were growing up and decided to get a piece of it for ourselves. We wanted it to be close enough so we could use it frequently. It takes us just over an hour to drive to it from our house. We also wanted to be able to make memories there with our children and grandchildren.
What makes this Chalet unique
What we love about Palomar mountain is the clean mountain air and the quiet sounds of nature. When we first walked up on the deck and looked out into the meadow, a pair of woodpeckers swooped down from a tree and into the fern. There were towering postcard picture perfect Firs and Cedars all around. We knew we had to have this cabin. *The spa tub and King sized bed in the master suite didn't hinder our decision.

Spotted Owl Chalet
We loved our weekend at the Spotted Owl Chalet! The home was beautiful, clean, and fully stocked. It was the perfect quick, relaxing getaway for us and our dog. Would definitely recommend!
Maggie, it was a pleasure to have you both. You two and your dog are always welcome.
Great time & relaxing visit
Jim and Teresa were great hosts. The cabin was very nice, just as pictured in the photos, all the rooms were very comfortable. Jim even stopped by one morning to tell us about an organ concert in the woods that day. We enjoyed it very much! It was a nice place to relax, hike, go fishing at the state park nearby, and play many of the board games they have stocked there . Our family of 4 with 2 grade-school kids very much enjoyed our visit.
We loved having Sarah and her family stay at the Owl. They were gracious guests and left it immaculate. I would hope they would come back many times!
It’s was an awesome spacious Cabin feel of a place. Loved the simplicity and the convince

A For A-Frame and Awesome
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the spotted owl. The space was clean, quiet and cozy and nestled in a beautiful setting. Highlights of the stay were the amazing wood burning stove and the fact that we were up there for the winter snow. The home is well stocked with everything we needed to have a great weekend. Jim and Teresa were excellent hosts and they have a very special place.
We will be back.
Thank you so much for the kind words. You were the ideal guests. We hope you come again.
