It looks like a postcard... Tucked away like a bird’s nest in a forest of tall trees, this cozy cottage offers guests the chance to feel rejuvenated by the great outdoors. Built into the side of a mountain, this cabin features picturesque mountain, forest, and valley views from its deck, living room, and dining room.
Although secluded, this luxury forested site is not remote, & guests can enjoy the convenience of Julian being less than a mile away. There are sights, state parks, and attractions within minutes, and the Pacific Ocean is only an hour away. This is a fantastic location for those who want to get away from it all, as well as those who want to enjoy the many great places that Southern California has to offer.
