Rustic tranquility is this lovely home nestled amongst a mixture of oak/pine woodland with 80 foot tall trees surrounding. It has a tree house feel to it, especially upstairs. The original home was built in 1920s. This is one of several historic cabins in the area. Plenty of natural light illuminates the space with skylights. Rustic fireplace, kitchen wood burning stove (can be used for cooking) and 2 potbelly stoves add coziness and the perfect ambiance to staying in a rural mountain cabin.

The space
This cabin has two stories. It's approximately 1,400 square feet. It has a nice master bedroom upstairs ("Tree House Room") with a sitting nook for gazing at the beautiful view with a cup of tea or glass of wine. There's a spiral staircase to the upstairs, definitely not for the clumsy soul. "The Purple Room" which is my favorite room to wake up in has a lot of French windows that were taking out of another old home and reused. It definitely get's colder in this room but there is a propane wall heater to take the edge off. It has a nice sky light for star gazing before you nod off to sleep. And the view of the tree tops in the morning is wonderful. There's a small kids room with bunk beds. They have comfy memory foam mattresses and it is stocked with some books and games. There is a nook in the "Dome Room" which is another amazing place to sleep and watch stars or wake up to a view of trees and wildlife activity. It also has a comfortable memory foam mattress. All beds have good quality mattresses and sheets/ pillows all to add a to a comfortable experience for you. I am always very comfortable sleeping on each bed. The cabin has a lot of reused French windows and the oval window upstairs is vintage so please be careful. I prefer that they do not get opened. The living room and dome room has old milled wood from the mountain. You can see the saw blade marks in the wood. All of the stain glass was made by a previous cabin owner. The claw foot tub and sink are also antique. So there are many things that make this cabin unique and very charming. Your contributions will not only help me pay bills but also restore this lovely home.

Guest access
Just not the laundry room. The machines are both out of order.

Other things to note
-If you want to stay a week or month just give me the dates. I am flexible with the calendar.

-The road is DIRT and low profile vehicles will scrape.

-We get SNOW between the months of NOVEMBER to MAY even....snow chains are required even with 4x4 vehicles. If there is over 8" of snow on the ground 4x4s and all-wheel drive vehicles get stuck and loose traction. No snow plow is available to rescue you. Tow companies will also not rescue you because they do not go off road or drive in bad conditions. The roads up the mountain get black ice. Snow chains come in handy there as well to help stop your vehicle. Please take my advice seriously to prevent accidents.

-The phone is for 911 only. You will need a calling card for long distance. No internet available so leave computers at home.

-No good cell phone service on the mountain. ATT&T and Verizon work the best but only in patches. You will have to research where your phone works as you drive up.

-There is no trash service so please pack it out.

Old and historic. All part of the original Bailey Resort a hundred years ago. Very quiet. GREAT PLACE TO ENJOY FALL COLOR!

This cabin is around 5,000 feet in elevation. It's a great birders retreat. Cute Pygmy or Saw-Whet Owls have been seen in the area. It's just a bike ride to the State Park at approximately 2.5 miles. If you ride in you do not need to pay the entrance fee. If you drive it is $10 dollars to park. The park offers 14 miles of forest and meadow trails, spectacular view points especially on Boucher Hill, a fishing pond with trout, bass, and cat fish and lovely picnic areas surrounded by 400 year old trees. The General Store (11-5p) and Mother's Kitchen (9-4p) are a nice 3 mile bike ride from the cabin where you can get a nice baked good or vegetarian breakfast/lunch. The World Famous Observatory is about an 8 mile drive. Their hours are 9-3p and they have two tours on weekends (11 and 1p). Lake Henshaw, for the serious fisherman, is about a 15 mile drive. You can rent boats there on a beautiful lake and eat at a nice restaurant called The Round Up. The La Jolla Indian Reservation is at the base of the mountain where you can experience the longest Zip Line Ride in San Diego County. You'll have to (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) for more info. Anza Borrego Desert is an hour drive. Julian is an and hour drive. Valley Center has an assortment of casinos. I do recommend visiting Bates Nut Farm. There is another great lake there called Lake Wohlford for the avid Fisherman along the Valley Center/Escondido border. There is also a nice cafe there called the Lake Wohlford Cafe.

Pet lover. I enjoy the outdoors. I have many hobbies. Fly fishing is one. Now I am taking on crochet and knitting. I like most recreational activities. I don't think I'll ever jump out of an airplane. I have cats, dogs, goats, and horses to keep me busy. Plus landscaping, home to clean, and I try to garden in my spare time. Recently purchased a rustic home in the mountain tops of Palomar Mountain.
