I love my family, the mountains, trees, quiet, animals, ideas and conversation. I also have a studio in Julian called Studio Samadhi.

What a wonderful getaway from the city. While the inside of the cabin was nice and cozy, we spent most of our time enjoying the covered patio and the outdoor areas of the property. My 18 month old had a great time pick up rocks and sticks, walking up and down the driveway, staring at the chickens, and pushing the tire swings (he was not quite big enough to actually swing in yet).
Little Pine is quaint and can be a bit crowded with two adults and a little one. If it's available next time, we will book the Big Pine cabin.
If your up for a quick hike, the Old Banner Toll Road trailhead is about half-a-mile from the cabin.
Great place near Julian! Ideal for family, couple or trip with friends.
We would come any time again and appreciated the cozy yet rustic atmosphere.
Little Pine was the perfect place to get away from civilization for my birthday. It was lovely. The wood stove works great, the décor is charming (it's even cuter now than these photos show-- the loveseat is replaced by two cool old armchairs), and the bed is incredibly comfortable with lots of warm quilts and pillows. It was cold and windy the few days I was there, and it was a comfortable place to be while the wind howled.
We were originally booked in Little Pine, but upgraded to Big Pine since it was available and was more spacious, with a separate living room. Our cabin was rustic and comfy. We enjoyed complete privacy for the two nights we stayed. Upon our arrival, Christine greeted us and offered excellent suggestions for restaurants and day hikes in the scenic hills around Julian. A relaxing, peaceful getaway.
We had a great stay. Close to town and all was as described.
Christine was great! She was very friendly, a fast responder and sent instructions that were perfect! She also had the cabin very well equipped for our visit! The location was a few minutes from Main St. and yet far enough away we had silence! The location was perfect and the neighborhood was great! Everything we were looking for!
This was a second stay and we felt at home.
The cabin was very cute and the property was really nice. We really enjoyed our stay.
We loved staying at Big Pine Cabin! Christine was great host, very helpful, and easy going. It was very relaxing and a great spot for a nice quiet getaway. The tire swings were an added bonus that our son really enjoyed. We highly recommend Whispering Pines and Christine!
Couldn't have asked for a more pleasant country getaway than Whispering Pines. Loved the rustic feel of the whole place which included our adorable cabin complete with a wood burning stove, a tire swing to bring back childhood memories, and a very friendly cat named Marco Polo! Julian in spring time is like something out of a Thoreau work, and that's exactly how I wanted it to be. Thank you so much to Christine our host!! Can't wait to come back already :)
This was the 2nd stay for Christine, and it was just as much a pleasure as was the 1st visit. Christine is an independent professional person and one that any host would love to have in their home. Clean, quiet, considerate, and caring... all those qualities and more. I hope that Christine manages to reinstate her local contract so that I might have her visit again. Thank you Christine! HIghly recommended.

Christine was a wonderful guest! She communicated well with me before and during her stay which always makes for a pleasant hassel free experience. Christine was so nice and personable. We had several great chats. She left the space perfectly clean! I would happily host her again and would recommend Christine to any potential airbnb host.
