Great check-in experience
100% of recent guests gave this home’s check-in process a 5-star rating.

We spent over a year lovingly renovating and remodeling this vintage fire lookout cabin into a luxury vacation rental with a spacious hot springs spa.

The two bedroom, one bath cabin is just over a mile from the historic town of Julian, yet it’s a private sanctuary with panoramic forest and Volcan Mountain Preserve views.

Perfect for a family weekend away! The home is easy to find and yet tucked away for optimal privacy and solitude. It is spotless and every amenity has been provided. I forgot the bath bomb I was excited to use in the claw foot, no problem...there are bath salts! Realized upon…

Hi Joanie. Thank you so much for being my guest. You and your group were fantastic guests. I still can't believe how clean and nice you left my small cabin, even though you had a group of six and cooked Thanksgiving dinner there. You are awesome and please come back any time!

Tamara’s place is a perfect little hideaway. We loved the great collection of books and all the light that comes in the windows. A very cozy place to sit and read and reflect. The cabin is small and best suited for one couple or two very close couples... the bed in the second r…

Thanks so much, Victoria. Yes on the full-sized bed. It is not meant for adults. The Cal King and the Queen sleeper sofa are for adults. The full is for a child or a aingle person who isn't very tall! And I will look into the squeeking. It’s from about 1910, and not sure if that part can be fixed but I will try! Thank you again for your kind thoughts.
