Stoneapple Farm is a fairy-tale country cottage nestled among 6 acres of oaks and pear trees. Families, groups of friends and retreats along with special dog friends are all welcome at Stoneapple Farm. Built in the late 1800s as an apple-packing house, and remodeled by a well-known architect in the 1940s Stoneapple Farm is a charming two-story cottage full of vintage books. All are welcome to come and enjoy this lovely home, the beautiful countryside and the historic small town of Julian.

The space
There is easy access to the front door of the cottage from the parking area. The backyard is fenced in for dogs. The cottage a has a large stone fireplace in a spacious living room which has lots of natural light coming in from large deep set windows. The kitchen is fully equipped to prepare meals while you are on your mountain retreat. Please keep in mind the cottage is elderly. It is cleaned after each guest visit and maintained by a handyman but it’s not a 5 star hotel. Think clean, quaint, a trip back to a simpler life, local art, vintage books and the quiet and serenity of being in the country. The upstairs private master bedroom has a new queen bed. The room with 2 twin size trundle beds is at the top of the stairs, it has no door, guests going to the master bedroom walk through this room. The air conditioner is a window unit in the master bedroom.
- A note regarding taxes...San Diego County requires that we collect a Transient Occupancy Tax which is 8%. It must be collected on or after the date of check in and not at the time of booking. You will receive a request for this payment via Airbnb.

Stoneapple Farm is located in the lovely Pine Hills neighborhood of Julian. It is a great area to explore on foot or by bike, although it is important to be careful on mountain roads! Keep an eye out for deer, turkeys, rabbits the occasional fox, bobcat, coyotes, lots of different species of birds, Steller Crested Blue Jays, Robins, Goldfinches and Quail. William Heise County Park is a great place to go for a hike, take kids to a fun playground, or go have a picnic, it is only minutes from Stoneapple.

Julian and Stoneapple Farm is our country haven now after many satisfying years practicing law in the public interest. Having met at law school in Connecticut, we spent most of our life together in Philadelphia, PA, Tom's native habitat, raising two children, each now with two children of their own on either side of the country.
