The Cabin at Strawberry Hill in Julian California,
your quintessential "cabin in the woods" is located on its own one acre plus
in the small, quiet community of Pine Hills.

Picture a redwood cabin with a deep blue metal roof,
... perched on a hill in the forest with views
from the Cuyamaca Peaks to the Pacific ocean.

One great room with a full kitchen, a screened porch with a deck,
and a special bath with claw-footed tub: a Western version of the Walden experience.

julian cabin interiorAlong the East wall we have provided a complete kitchen with a fully functional 1923 side-oven gas stove called "Alcazar" (the oven thermostat is still "right on") a microwave, toaster oven, 6 cubic foot refrigerator, coffee maker, and RED sink set into two-inch thick Canary Wood....the oiled finish brings out reds and yellows ... Pans hang on the wall and dishes and glassware rest on shelves below. We offer Strawberry as a private housekeeping cabin with do it yourself first breakfast that includes free range eggs, fresh juice, a local bread, coffees and teas, and most condiments.....

all the personal touches of a B&B, but with complete privacy, and on your own schedule...

A wonderfully nostalgic kitchen/dining table from the thirties tucks into its own area with a romantic dimmed droplight for that special meal...

  and, then, there is the famous most comfortable bed... we get more comments on that than any other... a quality, pillow-top, California King on simple pedestal frame... dual control electric warming blanket in winter, high count cotton sheets with light comforter in the summer....

 julian ca cabin porchjulian cabin sitting area Moving right along we come to a favorite part: Four French doors in the curved wall open to a full-width screened porch with two sitting areas and a cozy summer dining table. The metal roof is exposed (not insulated) in the porch area, making summer rains mesmerizing and hail storms exciting! In the winter, or on the chilly days of spring and fall, windows shelter the porch so one can still spy on the deer herd grazing below. We counted fourteen - three bucks, four does, and a bunch of fawns - this spring !



The seven-walled bathroom is done in spruce and pine with a grand little claw-footed tub, brass shower fixtures, and an antique-eclectic wash stand (the basin and fixtures are French - porcelain, marble, silver - but the stand seems more related to an early American sewing machine than a sink) anyway, it works quite well and fits nicely. Towel racks, hooks and the like are once again of manzanita to keep some continuity with the woods.

The stereo remote is an added plus... now, if we could just automate the coffee maker.

The Cabin at Strawberry Hill may be just the answer
when you need to escape the fast pace of the City.
