Overview

About the property

Best lake view- Real Beds sleep 10- fireplace/air conditioned $259 to $319

WHEN WE STAY AT A LODGE, WE EXPECT THE VERY BEST AND THAT IS WHAT WE OFFER TO OUR GUESTS. ABSOLUTELY THE VERY BEST VIEWS AT LAKE CUYAMACA JULIAN!!!! WHY? BECAUSE WE ARE LOCATED AT THE TOP OF CUYAMACA RESORT WITH UNOBSTRUCTED VIEWS OF THE ENTIRE LAKE!!!

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. We furnish the absolute best Featherbeds from Frontgate to ensure that our guests receive an excellent plush- night's rest. We don't offer uncomfortable "pullouts" or "bunkbeds" for our guests bedding but instead, we have quality beds and quality bedding. Plus another 1000 square feet of outside decking with BBQs overlooking Lake Cuyamaca. We even have tables for the outside decks so that you can have memorable Breakfasts, Brunches, and Dinners while facing and overlooking the entire lake, mountains, and meadows. Imagine, meals, drinks, fellowship, at the deck tables while gazing over the lake, meadows, and mountains. It is truly a SPECTACULAR setting!!! It is the perfect place for a family gathering, a romantic get-a-way, or a gathering of good friends.

Not only can you wine and dine overlooking the entire lake, you can do so while watching and listening to our 25-foot waterfall stream with a walkover bridge. There is also another private hexagon-shaped deck enclosed among the trees for reading, napping, or meditation. The owners have planted hundreds of flower bulbs, flowers from Oregon, and flowering trees for Spring and Summer blooms.

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 Featherbeds are luxurious as the owners believe it imperative that guests 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 featherbedding & down feather pillows. There is an armoire with private satellite TV. The double doors open to a large private balcony that overlooks the mountains, meadows, and lake.

Master #2 has a Queen size featherbed 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 featherbed in addition to a Queen size bed 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! Also are other games such as "Cornhole" (similar to horseshoes), and sleds for folks when it snows. The lake house is not lacking for anything. First-time guests are frequently surprised about the amount of amenities. We pride ourselves at making sure all of our guest's expectations are met or surpassed!!

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.

Two large outdoor BBQ grills are 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. It steps down to a bridge that covers a water-stream. Continue across the bridge to a floral garden area overlooking the entire lake.

In addition to the cleanliness of this home, the factor that truly sets it apart are the million dollar views. All areas of the home are COMPLETE views of the Lake Cuyamaca, Stonewall Peak, Cuyamaca Peak, Middle Peak, the Laguna Mountains, as well as the meadows. These incredible views are actually from the lake house itself. You don't have to walk or drive to other locations to experience this. The experience is from every location at the lake house. 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 several pie making bakeries.

As mentioned, we have very comfortable real beds for 10 and the lake house can accommodate more if needed. (In this case, the owners would need to be contacted to discuss these arrangements as there is a $15.00 fee for each additional guest.)

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.

Why Mike & Jean chose San Diego County

Lake Cuyamaca is the Gem of San Diego County. Mention the name, and most people smile and reminisce about fishing and Apple Pies. Lake Cuyamaca and Julian are destinations and they are well known to most Southern Californians and others. Mike & Jean have traveled throughout the USA and even though they have experienced incredible locations, next to Oregon, Lake Cuyamaca is one of the Keepers. It's beauty and proximity to various San Diego areas is unmatched. Mike & Jean are pleased to share this special place with friends, families, & church organizations. It is truly a magical place. When you see the area and the views from the Four Seasons Lake House, you will understand why. We guarantee it!

The Lake House and owners were warm and welcoming

  • 5 of 5

Despite heavy rain, the lake house was a great place to not only spend time together with the extended family, but it also gave us space (private rooms) to relax from the noise and decompress. The owner was very responsive and flexible. We only wish it didn't rain most of the time, so that we could've enjoyed the decks and outdoor spaces. That said, it was a great experience for all.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Alfred. It ws a pleasure having you stay. This has been a very rainy season (and snow), but we always welcome the water filling our creeks and lakes. The rain this season has filled Lake Cuyamaca to levels not seen in 10 years. We look forward to the Spring blooms that are coming. Cordially, Mike & Jean

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
