Cedar Creek Falls Retreat


Property Details

Updated: Dec 19, 2014
House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 15 Sleeps


Stay in one of the only places completely suited for kids and pets!

If you require 5-star accommodations, rare designer furniture, and truffles or warm cookies on your bed please check out the newer listings in Julian that can better suit your needs. We will no longer give refunds for misreading our description or not reading your contract. We realize that young kids and larger dogs create more wear and tear and have designed a cabin for those families traveling with this specific need.

Our place is decorated with a mixture of antique and new furnishings but is not so pristine you have to worry every five seconds about damaging designer pieces. We certainly expect you to take good care of the place but we have two boys, so we get the fact that they need wide open spaces to play, lots of games and toys, and if they catapult over the couch playing ninja attack when you have your back turned we understand---I mean, you can't crate train them like the dogs. Just don't have the kids wipe their hands on our custom-made drapes or have your dogs use our good dining room chairs as chew toys : )



Cedar Creek Cabin, Julian is located near Cedar Creek Falls on close to an acre of land in the exclusive area of Pine Hills 4 miles from the historic town of Julian in Northern San Diego. We are the only cabin in the area that not only accepts young children and pets, we cater to them! You will find virtually everything you need for you and your family to enjoy a peaceful getaway in a private location.

The property is completely fenced on two levels, the decks and the main yard. Home to the wild turkeys and deer, our water trough gives you front row seating to morning and afternoon migrations.

A semi-private road leads you to a private driveway.

DOWNSTARIS UNIT: The first floor suite is the perfect place for a couple with up to one child and boasts a huge corner wood-burning fireplace. A Quuen bed as well as a daybed that pulls out to 2 twins or one King is on this floor along with a private bathroom.

BONUS ROOM--included automatically for parties of 8 or more. Available for a fee for parties of 7 or less. Kitchenette, Queen Bed, Full Bed, Twin Bed. Share bathroom with downstairs suite. Note: the Bonus Room is the 4th Bedroom!

UPSTAIRS UNIT: This is the main living area. It has a large living room with sofa-bed and loveseat, another corner fireplace, dining room for 12, and a full kitchen. A special closet holds dog essentials.

Enjoy beautiful sunsets through majestic trees from our 8-ft living room slider and picture window or the balcony and deck that the slider leads to. Deck wraps around to the front area where we have another table and deck area.

Just minutes away are daytime adventures for you and your family including a Gold Mine Tour, fishing, horseback riding, wine tasting, and a stroll through downtown Julian for shopping and a slice of world-famous apple pie.

Walk up the main road and view a panoramic vista of the mountains and ocean from Mexico to the Catalina Islands.

SMOKING allowed on wrap-around decks and balcony. NO SMOKING or CANDLE BURNING is allowed inside home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi, and happy new year! Just wanted to let you know that we loved, loved, loved

our stay! The cabin is terrific - great amenities, decor, supplies, etc. And a

great set-up for the little ones! Also thoroughly enjoyed the constant visits to

the water trough by the numerous deer and turkeys! Thought Friday night's

rain might turn to snow, but no luck! Other than that one night, the weather

was cold, but super. A very relaxing, wonderful time was had by all. And yes

we did have some really awesome sunsets!

Great for extended family getaway.

8 adults and 7 kids under 10 years old! Enough space to escape and do my morning yoga away from the chaos. Lots of wildlife roaming around the property for the kids to experience. If you make sure to Read through the entire rental application you will know precisely what to expect if you rent this cabin. I suggest renting the whole place to have it all to yourself. Evenings and mornings on the upper deack are calm and peacefull with the breeze rustling through the oak trees.

good place for family reunion!

  • 5 of 5
There were 8 of us at Cedar Creek for the weekend and we were all very comfortable. The family ate together on the back deck, enjoyed the peace and quiet, and talked for hours! The kitchen was a behive of activity and everyone loved the setting. Small groups went in and out of Julian, for a hike and others just sat and enjoyed the birds, deer and turkeys! Thanks Cedar Creek, you gave us the perfect quiet spot for all the ages of our family time!

Kid Friendly and Beautiful Setting

  • 5 of 5
We loved staying at the Oak Grove Family Cabin. The location was beautiful and perfect for our family. The kids room was a huge hit and it was wonderful to see how excited my boys got to see wild turkey and deer right out the window. I also loved how many windows are in the cabin because we could watch the turkeys all around the house. It snowed just enough for my kids to play and have adventures outside. The Julian Pie company was close enough to satisfy everyone's sweet tooth.

This cabin is not fancy but I don't mean that in a bad way at all. It's exactly as and pet friendly. We don't have pets, but I could see why a family with dogs would love this house. The kitchen is a little dated, but honestly I'm not someone who cares. I'm looking for a family fun not granite counter tops. I can also say we were impressed with how clean it was. They have motion sensor night lights that came in very handy with little kids in the middle of the night.

I highly recommend bringing your own fire wood or fire logs. We enjoyed a fire every night but we purchased our logs in Julian and paid double. I would also recommend bringing your own table cloth. There is a lovely table that seats 12 (I think) but wished we had more table clothes to cover it since we have kids with messy fingers.

Great for kids and dogs

Just as advertised, great for kids and pets. The kids room has plenty of toys and the yard is secure.

The owner was responsive and helpful. We had a great relaxing stay.

There are plenty of hiking trails nearby and you are minutes from Julian.

The views from this property are incredible, and our childen enjoyed seeing a variety of wildlife throughout our stay (including many deer, wild turkey, squirrels, and more different types of birds than they could ever imagine!). The interior and exterior of the property is very well-maintained, very neat and clean, and offers many ammenties families with younger children will appreciate, as noted in the owner's description of the cabin (note: the outdoor swings and generous room to run and play outdoors were also a big hit with our 2 children, age 7 and 10!). The owner is extremely personable, responsive, and makes every effort to ensure you and your family's stay is an enjoyable one - she was wonderful to work with! We would highly recommend renting this beautiful, relaxing (quiet and private!) property, which is very reasonably priced given the interior and exterior square footage and many extras the property affords!
