Cottage, LR w/kitchen,Bath, Patio, BR w/ King Bed, pullout sofa for 2 add guest

The property is situated in the midst of the Anza Borrego Desert

State Park approx. 2400ft above sea level. At this elevation the

magnificent pines of Julian give way to a High Chapparal landscape

with native Junipers, Desert Willows and mixed with Agave, Cacti

and Creosote Bush giving the abundant wildlife cover from heat and


The Main Highway is the Great Overland Stage Route of 1849, from

where a private drive takes you to a secluded cottage in Adobe Style

and dedicated to the Native Indian Kokopelli figure, the flute

player who brings luck, charm and mischief.

Julian, the Gold Mining Town, beckons to be explored just 20

minutes to the west, Borrego Springs, 20 minutes to the north east,

offers the desert ambience with golf courses, club houses and

restaurants. To the south you might try a dip in the Agua Caliente

Hot Springs, or experience the freedom of soaring with a sailplane

from Warner Springs Sail Plane Airport 25 minutes to the northwest.

For the R&R enthusiast there are many books to read, movies to

watch, a private access to the Pacific Crest Hiking Trail and the

Mountain in back of the property to be climbed.

After a cool swim in the pool you might enjoy the attached patio

with a perfect view of the most magnificent sunsets, dipping the

mountain ranges into the bluest blue of nature's palette. It might

even inspire you to bring your painting easel, camera or sketch pad

and record these moments on paper or film.

If you are a private pilot you might try taking a picture of your

plane, tied down next to the airstrip, bathed in the gold of the

setting sun, you might even spot a coyote exploring it's tires.

A quiet spot in the High Desert just under two hours from downtown

San Diego and 3 1/2 hours from Los Angeles.

San Diego

A Hidden Gem in the Desert

  • 5 of 5

This charming, beautifully decorated, secluded casa is perfect for couples who want to get away from it all and enjoy the beauty of Anza Borrego Desert. Located in the higher, southeastern portion of Anza Borrego, the property is located on a private road that adjoins the Pacific Crest Trail. We had a wonderful time relaxing, enjoying nature, and exploring the magnificent Anza Borrego State Park.
