Property Description

Secluded, very private, cozy nature studio retreat "Enchanted Oaks" near the mountain town of Julian surrounded by oaks, acreage, and wildlife.

You can hike to Julian in 25 minutes, explore the property, or just relax on the large covered deck and enjoy nature, fresh air, bird watching, and open space and a pond. Bring your sketchbook or easel and the books you've been wanting to read. (But if you must, there is Wi FI!)

Enjoy petting the horses or watching the emus in the adjacent pasture and if the weather is right you can have a campfire at night. Wild turkeys march through the property, sometimes deer, and raptors circle overhead.

You could trailer your horse here and go to various Julian horse trails. (extra fee)

Brand new cabin and perfect setting to paint, draw, write, read, or hike on the surrounding trails.

You can hike the road to the top overlooking downtown Julian or turn around and see all the way to the coast and Palomar Mountain. In Spring you will witness the amazing daffodil explosion on our 25 acre property, and blooming all over Julian as well as the native plants and trees.

In the Fall you can enjoy Apple Days, and on any clear night you can see the Milky Way: come visit the stars that you forgot were in the sky!

The pasture lights up on a Full Moon and near a New Moon the stars will amaze you. In Winter, visit the snow and enjoy the crisp chilled air, and in Summer enjoy the many hiking opportunities in the area and the open space and go to Julian for the best apple pie in the region!

Downtown Julian and the Julian famous apple pies are a short drive (5 minutes) or a 25 minute hike over our hill. For more adventure Cedar Falls is beautiful and just a short drive off Eagle Peak Road; you then hike from the parking area. William Heise County Park, Cuyamaca State Park, Volcan Mountain Preserve, Santa Ysabel Preserve, and Cleveland National Forest are all easy trips from this retreat as well and we are happy to provide recommendations and directions.

Small refrigerator, microwave, Keurig coffee /tea maker with an assortment of coffees and teas, cream & sugar, toaster, single burner stove top, and a propane BBQ grill are at the cottage for your use. And always a few treats!

Air conditioner and heater keep the cottage comfy or open the 5 screened windows for a natural flow of air and nature's sounds. Your call! There is picnic table under an old oak and a hammock for you to nap in!

There is room for an infant or child as well, and certain pets are allowed by exception only. (Graco playpen bed available)

Fabulous Time!

Loved the beautiful and comfy cottage that had all the personal touches to make it special. What nice people, they made me feel welcomed and were so helpful. I brought my elderly beagle he loved the great "smells" on the property trails. Overall a great retreat! Thank you!

Beautifully Peaceful...

Lovely little place to stay with everything you need to be comfy. I waited up to see the Magical Milky Way. While I was so happy to see it. I then got an amazing experience. Both of the horses joined me and we watched it together. I will never forget it. Thank you so much Leigh...

Beautiful Secluded Mountain Cottage

We couldn't have asked for a more peaceful and delightful stay! The owners were especially welcoming and helpful, and so were their incredible animals. Think magical horses and a charming emu. Also, if you love birds, plan to enjoy a wide array of them through the large cottage windows, or outside on the hammock. It's a beautiful place inside and o... Read More

Perfect getaway

We stayed at a lovely little secluded cabin. Everything we needed was there including horses, emus, cranes, baby squirrels, dogs and lots of birds. With books, cards, bird watching, and visits by the horses and Curly, the emu, we enjoyed a restful visit and it was great to be free of TV! Wish we could have stayed longer.
