This glamping site is just minutes from the turn-of-the-century town of Julian, founded in 1870. Julian is where guests can enjoy clean mountain air, forests teaming with wildlife, and crisp clear night skies. The Cleveland National Forest, Heise State Park, and Cuyamaca State Park are all close by. Guests can head to Fletcher Island for a picnic, shopping, or dining, as well as a variety of cultural activities from The Julian Wolf Preserve to the Gold Mine Museum. What guests will love most is getting in touch with nature and going hiking, biking, boating, or even horseback riding. There are over 40 wineries in the area for those who want to relax and sample some local California wine. If guests are into bird watching or photography, this is a great place for both.

If visiting in the fall, the Julian Apple Festival, which takes place in September and October, offers some of the best apple pie in the area. This property is also about 20 minutes from Cedar Creek Falls, which boasts magnificent 80-foot waterfalls, Warner Springs, and the Borrego Springs Desert. This area also has golf courses, two of the best being the Palomar Observatory and The Oasis Camel Dairy. It’s only about an hour to the Pacific Ocean with its beautiful beaches, and if guests want to venture off site, they can visit the Safari Park, the San Diego Zoo, the Aquatica and even the Agua Caliente Hot Springs.
