Dreaming about a trip to Julian? This mountain destination offers historic, outdoor, and luxury vacation accommodation experiences. Over the last few years, many unique short-term vacation rentals have become available. One of my personal favorites is the Crooked Pine Farmhouse.


This rental takes a San Diego “staycation” to a new level. The secluded and rural feel of this property makes it hard to believe that it’s located in the heart of Julian’s Historic District. Walk three blocks down to the Main Street business district or up the block to tour the Eagle Gold Mine. On a clear day, the home offers spectacular mountain views from the front and ocean views from the second-floor deck. The interior is decorated with a modern farmhouse feel and with lots of Julian charm. This home is perfect for anyone craving to experience Julian’s small-town lifestyle.


Owners Mary and Jim have thought of everything, from perfectly blending the classic farmhouse style with high-end finishes for maximized comfort to incorporating modern amenities (coffee maker, wireless Internet, cable TV, new appliances, etc.)

This spacious, newly built home features reclaimed barnwood floors, vaulted ceilings, and shiplap walls. (Joanna Gaines would approve!) With three large bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and an open kitchen, dining, and living room floor plan, there is room for the whole family. Need some fresh mountain air? Step out onto the wraparound porch, which of course has a porch swing.


Julian is a must-visit small town in California known for its gold hills and freshly made apple pie. This mountain town is just an hour’s drive from San Diego’s beaches and 20 minutes from the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. It’s safe to say, there are plenty of things to do in Julian and nearby.
