The State Park is about 5 minutes away with miles of hiking trails and great fishing. Starhavens sleeps 9, game room with 4K TV and plenty of games, living room features a wood burning stove. Kitchen and coffee bar fully stocked. 4wd Nov.-April depending on weather.

The space
This mountain cabin paradise sits on 10 acres with views to the ocean, the famous Palomar Mountain Observatory, with Mount San Jacinto in the background. Take a stroll through the forest, or hike the State Park just minutes away! Summers generally have cooler temperatures than surrounding areas, and winters often bring snow! With local seasonal festivals and community gatherings, wineries, botanical garden trails, historic gold mines, fine dining, the beach, organic produce farms, and even an amusement park all within an hour's drive, Star Havens is truly a "has it all" location. 4-wheel drives are recommended and chains are generally required by the CHP on the mountain when there is snow. Some guest even rent a 4WD for their stay. Snow is possible anywhere between November and May, so plan accordingly for a beautiful, snowy experience!

Larger groups may wish to reserve the second space on the property, StarLoft, which sleeps up to 4.

Our rooms include three bedrooms, a game room, 2 bathrooms, a kitchen, a dining room, and a living room. Star Havens sleeps 9 comfortably. One full bath is upstairs in the hallway next to the master bedroom, and one full bath is downstairs in the bedroom.

Beds include 5 twin beds (one is a trundle), one full bed, and one Cal King.

PLEASE NOTE that when the home is rented to two guests, only the upstairs bedroom and the bathroom are made available.

The house is heated and cooled by forced air, and there is a wood burning stove for those who wish to use it. Firewood is usually available at the General Store or the State Park.
