Doris and Odd were so welcoming and made us feel right at home. The house is a little piece of vintage paradise. It's so charming and full of comfortable details like the great pillows and mattresses, the soft robes, games and puzzles, and a great breakfast spread. But the very best thing was the forest in the backyard. The property is huge and our dogs had a fantastic time running around and exploring. The house is basically all sliding doors that open onto the backyard so even when you're inside you feel like you're among the trees.
We loved it and will definitely come back! Great place for a relaxing getaway. Beautiful surroundings and thoughtful hosts that go out of their way to make your stay special. Odd and Doris have everything organized to make guests feel at home. Their Norwegian Woods cottage is set in a beautiful landscape and features a cozy, romantic fireplace in the main room.
Comfortable bedding, a squeaky-clean bathroom and kitchenette, and convenient breakfast provisions made for an enjoyable stay. We will definitely be back! Doris, and her family are some of the most wonderful people you will ever meet. We rented her house to host our small wedding, and I couldn't have imagined a more perfect place for it. Great place for a get-away! The backyard is fun to relax in, and nearby only about a 10min car ride are many awesome hiking trails! We wanted a quiet little getaway after a very busy holiday season The fire pit is very cozy, and made the entire great room warm and welcoming.
We found coffee, tea, breakfast foods and sodas waiting for us, and everything we needed for cooking our own meals in the little kitchen. There is a surprisingly well stocked grocery store about a mile away. The bed was piled high with fluffy pillows, and the mattress was very comfortable.
Even though it was cold and rainy we had a great stay, and our dogs loved exploring the huge yard with lots of trees and rocks. Doris and Odd's lovely getaway was exactly as described. They were incredibly friendly and accommodating, but gave us privacy during our stay.
We visited mid December, which was quite chilly- but the home stayed very cozy fireplace is a wonderful plus! All amenities were provided with great care, location was safe and quiet. Highly recommend this place! Beautiful home, unique in every way- highly recommend checking it out. We most loved the deck overlooking the lake, situated up in the trees.
Very unique, very special. Only issue was that we couldn't go in the hot tub due to a bee hive being close by. Hot tub under the stars was great. Telescope is super cool. Place very well equipped and clean. Rick was a great host. Stylish comfortable well equipped home with great views It does take you "into the woods" Good daily exercise on the steps. Thanks, Rick, for a lovely stay in Julian and for your flexibility! My husband and I enjoyed the property and would stay again if we were ever back in the area.
We were looking for a secluded and cozy romantic getaway and that is exactly what we got. Although there are other homes near the property, you feel like you are in your own mountain retreat.
The media room is fantastic with the great TV and surround sound system. The hot tub is very secluded and great for a romantic evening under the amazing stars. Julian is a great small town that takes you back in time with great wine tasting locations and various other shops.
It was an amazing stay and I highly recommend for a romantic getaway. Great place with all the features. A little pricey but worth it ultimately. A little strange that an account on another site is needed but oh well. We absolutely loved our stay here. Great communication, everything was as it was stated and clean and well thought out. We were so comfortable we could have stayed longer for sure The jacuzzi was truly awesome both from a comfort stand point but also the location and view of the stars that it provided.
The lookout patio up at the top of the property provides an excellent view of the lake. We didn't get to make use of the treehouse deck due to it being covered in snow, but that was just what we wanted anyway: What a wonderful memory we created at this amazing vacation cabin for Christmas. Just thrilled with our time spent here. This Mount Laguna home is a perfect get away for those looking for a quiet, serene mountain escape.
Only an hours drive from downtown San Diego, the home is one block from Pine House Cafe and Tavern with great home cooked meals breakfast lunch and dinner and Friday and Saturday nights they have live music and a bar. Walking distance to plenty of hiking trails or a quick drive a few miles down the road to any major trail head.
Both bedrooms were incredibly comfortable and clean, the pull out couch in the living room near the fire place would make a total of 6 people very comfortable there. The home has been cared for and updated in just enough ways. Overall, we were increasingly happy with the luxuriousness of this place verses the local cabins that are available and plan to go back for sure!
Great cabin in Mt. Lovely place to stay if you are looking to spend some time on the trails in the area. This Cabin was absolutely perfect for our family of 5. Great location only 20 min to Jillian for our favorite pie, and a short walk to the local store for quick needs. Host was amazing and lots for us all to do. We had little ones and found games the first night and woke up to finding a toy box full of toys that were so perfect for them.
Our ten year old had a library of books to choose from, read while lounging in the hammock and loved the selection of movies. My husband loved the outdoor area and had a great time grilling while we all sat outside by the fire ring listening to music. Staying at the cabin made this mama very happy. We will definitely be staying again!
First off, the communication was terrific. Mary Ellen responded quickly and we had no problems checking in or checking out. The scenery was beautiful on our way up to the cabin. Also, this place was immaculate! Complimentary coffee and homemade treats were a hit with the family!
Will definitely stay again! We had a wonderful time! The cabin is even cozier as night falls. We enjoyed dinner at Cuyamaca Lake last night; watched a Netflix movie we brought from home, read for pleasure and relaxed in the evening.
The snack in a Ball glass jar from the host was thoughtful and we found local maps helpful for our trekking. Everybody knows Mary Ellen in Mount Laguna and she has an excellent reputation as a businesswoman. Everything worked perfectly and we were back home in San Diego in an hour! A perfect little getaway and logistics went like clockwork. Hope to return soon! Very neat and clean! We had plenty of room for 6 us of with 2 dogs. Tons of hikes close to the cabin!
This place is the perfect spot. The check-in was easy. The room was spotless. The views are incredible. Just a great overall experience in some beautiful country. This was great place!
Everything you could need is there. If you want to get away for a while, this is the place. Mark was very helpful and friendly. This was my first time using Airbnb and it was the best option for this little get away vacation./p>

Monterrey and Crescent City were two of her favorites. She and several of her friends also enjoyed traveling to Dixieland Jazz festivals for many years.

Patty was the oldest daughter of Evan and Johnnie Reed. A memorial service will set at a later date. The American Tall Tale was shaped through frontierism as we discovered new and vast expanses of land that needed to be filled with equally large stories and characters like Paul Bunyan, John Henry, Casey Jones, and Calamity Jane. Following the Second World War, the genre stopped expanding. Some literary experts argue that the legacy of the Tall Tale has been kept alive and well.
It was nurtured on an island in the Florida Keys, brought across the nation in the RV, and proclaimed from the mountain tops of Burney, California. Tall Tales, we know, are defined by the exaggerated and boisterous over-the-top declarations.
I doubt very few of us ever truly believed a giant blue ox created the Great Lakes. We often take such stories for granted, or with a grain of salt, or with a roll of the eyes. More often we forget that they are part of the American Experience and tell us so much about the personality of our great nation.
And so today, I give you his story, told in the most appropriate of styles. Marathon, Florida is a strip of land surrounded by water and connected to the rest of America by narrow bridges.
Subsequently, everyone knew when Steve saw a friend — old or new or never met before. Everyone knew when his grandson, Tyler, accomplished a new goal, as Steve never let the achievements of others go unnoticed.
Everyone knew when Steve heard a new joke, learned a new fact, or tasted an amazing meal. Much like the great Hemingway, Steve thrived in the keys. He found the warmest rays of sunshine, caught the biggest fish, and discovered the biggest snails. His snail collection was a prized collection of rare pieces. Snails of all shapes, sizes and shells. The average person never thought twice about snails.
However, once Steve began expository explaining his escargot, everyone was entranced. His name was Bob. They had known one another for years, having worked on challenging and rewarding projects. For years they would join up to fish. Though time and distance had separated them, they easily reconnected in the early mornings along the mightiest rivers, tackle boxes in hand, as if no time had passed.
Through the years, Steve had been a close, personal friend of Bob and his family. Bob, who was a Tall Tale in and of himself, left behind the compassionate, strong and outgoing Shirley.
She and Steve had known one another for years, but had gone some time without seeing one another. However, much like Bob and Steve, they reconnected as if it had only been a few days since they last had dinner, shared laughs, and discussed life. They complimented one another in the strongest of ways, which is to say subtle and hard to spot by the untrained eye. The pair may not have even noticed the changes at first, and it certainly took quite some time to see.
However, it is fair to say that, had they been a palm tree: Steve was the trunk stretching into the sky while Shirley was the root structure that anchored them to the ground and kept them from blowing over in a hurricane.
As a result, they created a great canopy of palm fronds and coconuts that provided shade, refreshment, and comfort to all that came near them. The two soon took off across the country, celebrating the nation they both loved while visiting sites rich in history and tradition.
Along the way there were many moments of smiles, laughter, and tenderness. Somewhere along this journey, perhaps after being inspired by the Big Skies of Montana, the deep lows of the Grand Canyon, or the simple joys of a peaceful stretch of road that has no historical marker or anyone but Steve and Shirley, the two joined together in the decision to share their lives together.
While some may critique that this was the behavior of much younger people, in that moment, they made one another feel young and vibrant and free. They had renewed one another — not just in mind, but in spirit and body. And so it is that I, your humble author, came to meet Steve Chappell, who little to his knowledge had just joined a family with a long, rich tradition of storytelling.
We are Irish, after all. His new bride had raised her children and grandchildren with stories of protective lions who lived under the house, playful gnomes who destroyed the garden, and famous relatives who built homes for ghosts. While in the light of adulthood these stories seemed silly and predictable, I know they were designed for something greater.
They disguised rules of folklore, respected our youthful innocence, and kept our imagination sharp while keeping our minds sharper. I believe the two had a plan to keep their minds sharp. While Shirley focused on their imagination, Steve was in charge of logic. The point was making sure you listened to the facts, looked at the history, and came to an educated conclusion inspired by what you knew in your mind as well as what you knew in your heart.
This gives me faith in the future of my younger cousins who were close with him. It also gives me faith in myself. Steve and I lived on opposite sides of the spectrum on countless topics. However, one thing truly brought us together, and that was the love of a good debate. We knew that being educated on events and facts allowed you to draw conclusions and make valid points.
Steve read a lot, ranging from fiction to historical fiction to biography to newspapers. He also watched the news a lot and normally at a high volume so it could still be heard over his rousing agreements or even more rousing disagreements. In those moments, I saw myself in him. We both drove ourselves to learn something new every single day.
