Our place is close to parks for hiking and biking, restaurants and dining, gold mining, the Historic Julian town and beer and wine tasting. Lake Cuyamaca is a short drive away where you can rent a paddle boat or test your fishing skills. You'll love our cabin because for a mountain home, it has a refreshing amount of space for all to spread out and relax without feeling crowded. It has the perfect mix of vintage charm with modern amenities and the game room entertains kids and adults alike. Follow us on instagram #starrypinemoutainretreat
PERFECT MOUNTAIN GETAWAY! This is the home you picture when you decide to spend time away in the country. It is located in the beautiful wooded neighborhood of Pine Hills about 4 miles from the historic town of Julian at an elevation of approximately 4,000 feet. Various fruit trees decorate the property adding to the characteristics of the retreat.
Once you enter, you find a delightful mix of the old west and country chic. There are two large bedrooms and two full bathrooms. The master bedroom has a king sized bed and a twin pull trundle day bed for up to four guests. The second bedroom has a queen sized bed for a comfortable space for two guests to share. In addition, there is a cozy nook off the second bedroom with bunk beds for your kids. It provides a separate space for sleeping, while keeping them close enough to hear if they want you.
The open well lit living room draws you in to a comfortable and rich area with couches and chairs circling the propane fireplace. The dining room just calls out for the family to pull up a chair and sit together over a home cooked country meal. The open floor plan allows guests to dabble in the kitchen while visiting with others in the living room and dining area. There is even a bar ready for you to pull up and sit for a while. The kitchen is a delightful step back in time, while boasting all new appliances. The sink is an amazing old washtub and the cabinets mix a touch of old and new. The appliances are top of the line stainless steel which include a large refrigerator, a dishwasher and incredible oven/stove.
If you want a little time off to yourself, you can tear yourself away to the lovely sitting room with more chairs and a couch where you can curl up with your favorite book, work on puzzles, or watch a movie on the television (note: there is no cable tv). Although this already is enough for any fabulous getaway, throw in the huge game room in the back of the home. There is a full sized ping pong table, plenty of sitting room and comfortable furniture for bringing the entire group together for real family time. Everyone can sit and watch the ping pong game, visit with each other, curl up in a chair or on a couch, and just enjoy. The home also has a large pass through window directly from the kitchen, so while everyone visits, snacks, treats and tasty delights can be passed through to all the guests.
And once the sun sets, there is nothing like the Julian sky at night. Without the distracting glow of the lights in the city, the sky is blanketed with so many stars that feel as if they are close enough to reach out and touch. Deer wander around the property, as do wild turkeys and a host of other wildlife. As guests, you will simply melt into the surroundings and find all your stress and worry floats away. A calm and quiet found no where else surrounds you and you will never want to leave the mountain.
The home is almost 2,000 square feet, plenty of room to spread out and enjoy yourselves! There is a large game room with a ping pong table, darts and games. For stays longer than one week, we will provide access to the laundry room.
