We spent over a year lovingly renovating and remodeling this vintage fire lookout cabin into a luxury vacation rental.

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.

Tamara's place was a well thought out experience. Super clean and easy to navigate. It was close enough to the main part of Julian but far enough away that it felt very private.

This is a very lovely destination spot in Julian, eapecially if you want easy access to town with the privacy of a cabin setting. The house and host are both great and there was nothing that we needed and didnt have. Highly recommend.
