About the property

Best lake view sleeps 10 fireplace/air conditioned $259 to $319

ABSOLUTELY THE VERY BEST VIEWS AT LAKE CUYAMACA JULIAN!!!! No other property has these incredible views.

Lake Cuyamaca Four Seasons House...At 5000 feet above sea level, this is a 2500 square foot mountain home with the modern amenities of a fine hotel. The home overlooks Lake Cuyamaca and has the most SPECTACULAR views of the Lake and the surrounding meadows and mountains. It is the perfect place for a family gathering, a romantic get-a-way, or a gathering of good friends.

Whether you are a hiker, mountain biker, fishing enthusiast, nature lover, star-gazer, or just need some time to decompress and relax with family and friends, this Lake House will fulfill those needs.

The Cuyamaca 4-Seasons Lake House has three large Master suites in addition to a fourth den for sleeping purposes. The beds are extremely comfortable as the owner believes it is imperative that folks get a great night's sleep.

There is room to sleep 10 in the following bed areas:

Master #1 has a King Size bed with premium bedding & down feather pillows. There is an armoire with private satellite TV. The double doors open to a private balcony that overlooks the mountains, meadows, and lake.

Master #2 has a Queen size bed with premium Pottery Barn bedding and another armoire with private satellite TV. It also has a door that opens to a separate balcony area with incredible views.

Master #3 has a King size bed in addition to a Queen size bed with Tempur-pedic Memory Topper and a standard twin bed. All bedrooms are large with ample room.

Each bedroom has a private bathroom.

The den area has a standard twin size bed.

The home has central air-conditioning and forced air heating. In addition, there is a auto-feeding pellet fireplace in the Great Room.

The incredible views and the floor to ceiling rock fireplace in the Great Room make for a romantic setting or a cozy get-together. The floors are polished hardwood and the Great Room has southwest decor in addition to a 46' large screen TV. All insulated windows focus on the lake and the spacious views. Satellite programming and WIFI are standard amenities. The house features a shuffleboard table for competitive fun!

The housekeeper maintains this home in spotless condition. The kitchen has polished wood floors and granite counter-tops. It has full appliances, serving pieces, cookware, ice-maker, dishwasher, compactor….. about everything you would find in your home.

A large outdoor BBQ grill is located on a far end of the viewing deck. It is the perfect item for grilling steaks, chicken, veggies, or even the trout you catch from the lake. You can have your dinner inside the home at the dining table or you can have a group dinner on the outside deck overlooking the lake. The spacious outdoor deck has even been extended as a hexagon into the middle of a group of trees so that you can enjoy an additional peaceful setting.

In addition to the cleanliness of this home, the factor that sets it apart are the million dollar views. From all areas of the home are COMPLETE views of Lake Cuyamaca, Stonewall Peak, Cuyamaca Peak, Middle Peak, the Laguna Mountains, as well as the meadow areas that stretch eastward toward the rim that drops almost a vertical mile to the Anza Borrego desert floor. It is no wonder that various travelers stop at the corner of this home to take in the awesome views and to take photographs.

The Cuyamaca Four Seasons Lake House is in the Cuyamaca Resort district and it borders Cuyamaca State Park. This State Park is the jewel of San Diego County and it draws enthusiasts who come for hiking, boating & fishing, bird and nature watching, star & night-sky gazing, and horseback riding & mountain bike riding (on designated trails). The hiking views are breath-taking. You will be able to overlook the Anza Borrego desert, see south into Mexico, North to San Jacinto near Palm Springs, West to the Ocean, ... or you can see all at once from a high vantage point. Deer and Wild Turkeys are routinely seen on and about the property and along the meadows and mountain sides. You will most likely see these animals up close as you relax on the decks. In addition, there are bobcat, marmots, raccoons, and foxes. There are mountain lions that live in these mountains because they feed on the deer herds. For this reason, It is best to be practical when hiking and do not travel alone and do not permit children to wander by themselves on the mountain trails. The Cuyamacas are an area of incredible beauty but it is a wilderness that is home to various animals.

There are birds of every kind that surround you including, Hawks and various raptors, Woodpeckers, Jays, Canadian Geese, Loons to name a few. There are also a pair of Bald Eagles that live in the trees near the lake. It is a special treat to see the Bald Eagles chirping while soaring over the lake.

For more leisurely pursuits, you can go to the old gold-mining town of Julian, about 9 miles up the road. Once there, you can peruse quaint shops, visit the winery, go on gold mine tours, stop by the soda fountain, or indulge in fine or casual dining. Of course, Julian is best known for home-made Apple Pie and you have your choice of the Julian Pie Company or Mom's Apple Pies.

We welcome you to the Cuyamaca Four Seasons House and we know that you will be mesmerized by the views, pleased with the amenities, and energized by the beauty and nature that surrounds you.

Amazing stay, wonderful home, spectacular views!

  • 5 of 5

The Four Seasons Lake House provided the perfect setting for a family weekend get-a-way. The home was exceptionally clean and appointed with all that we needed, and then some! The views were spectacular, especially with the contrasting views from morning-afternoon-evening. We drove into town for the mine tour and it was a scenic approx. 8 mile drive. There were 7 adults and 1 child- this home was the perfect size for us to spread out a bit but still feel cozy. The beds and bedding were very comfortable and much appreciated. Overall, we all loved our stay in this beautiful home!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We made a King Master and a Queen Master, feather beds and they are the most comfortable beds to sleep in. We got the idea from Timberline at Mt. Hood and we decided that we had to have them too. We try to think of everything for our guests and we are happy that you enjoyed your stay. Cordially, Mike & Jean

Spectacular views and accommodations.

  • 5 of 5

Four Seasons Lake House is a dream come true. The owners, Mike and Jean are so easy to work with and bent over backwards to make sure everything was perfect, and it was. The house is beautiful and spotlessly clean. Comfortable, homey and spacious. They even decorated the house for Christmas and that was an extra special touch for the holidays. You will not find a better rental in the Julian/Cuyamaca area and certainly not for the price. Thank you Mike and Jean for an unforgettable stay! We will be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you Lauren. It was a pleasure having you stay. We always keep the lake house in spotless condition and we make sure that the beds are at the top end of the comfort scale. We frequently visit Timberline at Mt. Hood and we really enjoyed the feather beds there. It is like sleeping on a cloud. We recently brought in some feather beds for the Four Seasons Lake House. We hope to have you back in the near future! Cordially, Mike & Jean

A beautiful getaway property.

  • 5 of 5

What a magical place to celebrate a special occasion with friends. Waking up to that view from your bed in the master bedroom was truly special. The house was equipped with everything you needed, the beds were comfortable and the common spaces were spacious and inviting. Highly recommend this cabin for your weekend getaway. So close to San Diego but yet feels so far away.

Best Womens retreat !!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family did a week vacation in January and because we Loved it so much I wanted to have my women's retreat here too!! I talked about this house for 9 months!!!!!! The time came and the ladies loved it as much as my family did. Said it was the most relaxing place we've had a retreat at so far . No One went into Julian because this is a house that you don't want to leave. The first morning I pulled up the dining room window shade to find 4 deer staring at me!! Watched them graze for 15 minutes!

The house has everything! this time all I brought was Food! Comments were continually made about how comfortable the beds were. This place gave us everything we needed to unplug, slow down and reconnect with the simple blessings that surrounded us. The ladies are already talking about being here next year. And we will be!!!! Thank you for all the effort you put into making our stay comfortable and memorable !

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We often have women's retreats at the lake house and our goal is to make each one memorable. Our goal is to have each guest enjoy beautiful surroundings with very comfortable bedding. The deer are always a special treat as they and the wild turkeys stroll onto the property daily. We continually test ourselves with each guest's stay and we always expect to produce an excellent Lake Cuyamaca experience. Thank you for your review as it continually verifies mission accomplished. We look forward to your return. Cordially, Mike & Jean

Quilter's retreat

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Lake House for a weekend of quilting. It was the perfect spot for us. There was room for everyone to rest, relax and sew into the late hours. The deck gave guests the opportunity to squirrel away some private time and enjoy the quiet beauty of the location. The house was well equipped and had many extras that you didn't even know you might need, platters, wine glasses etc. Mike set up tables and chairs for us which was a treat so we did not have to pack extras. Everyone can't wait for our next visit next year!

We also have various churches, leadership groups, families, or couples wanting to experience this great location. We look forward to having you and your quilting group back in the Spring.

Poker Pals enjoy the Four Seasons House in Julian

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of seven Poker Pals who plan an annual trip to play cards and catch up. The Four Seasons house at Lake Cuyamaca was delightful with great views of the lake, a fully stocked kitchen, a comfortable bed for each of us, and plenty of bird feeders the owner stocked so we enjoyed all sorts of birds. We would love to come visit again. The owners are easy to contact and helpful. Thank you!
