Cozy Cabin Overlooking Beautiful Lake Cuyamaca

Come enjoy some of San Diego's forgotten beauty in this gorgeous, secluded Piute Trail mountain cabin overlooking Lake Cuyamaca and just minutes from the quaint little town of Julian. During your stay, you'll have a chance to see wild deer grazing in the nearby pastures below, wild turkey foraging up and down the hillside (sometimes they even visit the deck!), raccoon's getting into their usual mischief, bald eagles soaring above or swooping in for a quick meal, owls, orioles, blue-jays, migratory ducks & geese, woodpeckers... and the list goes on! If you're into bird watching and/or photography, this is a great place for both! Using the cabin as a base camp, you'll be able to explore Cuyamaca Rancho State Park and Cleveland National Forest ,Anza-Borrego State Park with their many trails and viewpoints; fish for Florida bass, smallmouth bass, trout, crappie, bluegill, channel catfish, and even white sturgeon (Yes, our lake has sturgeon!); picnic on Fletcher Island; go boating; or just take in the peaceful surroundings and vast views from the comfort of the cozy cabin! Open year-round, including the snowy winter months when you can take advantage of the local sledding and snowboarding terrain. Available by reservation only, so plan early!

Guestbook comments from the owner

John,



Just wanted to say thanks for our time at the cabin. It was a great experience! Definitely cool and quiet at night which was a welcome change. The kids enjoyed being able to see all of the stars from the deck. The grill worked quite well for hot dogs and corn on the cob. I appreciate your son coming by to make sure all was well. We were blessed in being able to stay there. All the best to you and your family! - Brian & Ericka

QUIET and RELAXING

  • 4 of 5

It is a great location if you like quiet. I would suggest if you like to have meals, you bring food. It is 7 miles into Julian and most restaurants aren't open for dinner. We had a relaxing time and spent a lot of time on the deck looking for animals. We saw wild turkeys, a rabbit, lots of birds, and deer. I would suggest you bring binoculars to get a close-up. The cabin is rustic and homey, not luxury. The kitchen was well stocked-they even provide coffee filters. To the owners, we would have appreciated a list on the counter to tell what to do when leaving, and maybe house rules. Providing information on the area would have been nice.

Great cabin

  • 5 of 5

The cabin looks a little rustic on the outside (not a bad thing), but has plenty of modern touches inside. We enjoyed our stay. It was warm, but the trees and the breeze off the lake kept everything nice and cool inside the cabin. Really enjoyed the deck. The place was very clean and prefect for our little group. Nice, quiet getaway.

Delightful!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying at the cabin and it was just as enchanting as the first time. The deck, with its perfect view of the lake, is a perfect place for reading and grilling. Rented a pontoon and cruised the lake and afterwards had lunch at the Cuyamaca restaurant. The weather at the lake was perfect. Julian is awesome......and perfect!
