These incredible views are actually from the lake house itself. You don't have to walk or drive to other locations to experience this. The experience is from every location at the lake house. It is no wonder that various travelers stop at the corner of this home to take in the awesome views and to take photographs.
The Cuyamaca Four Seasons Lake House is in the Cuyamaca Resort district and it borders Cuyamaca State Park. This State Park is the jewel of San Diego County and it draws enthusiasts who come for hiking, boating & fishing, bird and nature watching, star & night-sky gazing, and horseback riding & mountain bike riding (on designated trails). The hiking views are breath-taking. You will be able to overlook the Anza Borrego desert, see south into Mexico, North to San Jacinto near Palm Springs, West to the Ocean, ... or you can see all at once from a high vantage point. Deer and Wild Turkeys are routinely seen on and about the property and along the meadows and mountain sides. You will most likely see these animals up close as you relax on the decks. In addition, there are bobcat, marmots, raccoons, and foxes. There are mountain lions that live in these mountains because they feed on the deer herds. For this reason, It is best to be practical when hiking and do not travel alone and do not permit children to wander by themselves on the mountain trails. The Cuyamacas are an area of incredible beauty but it is a wilderness that is home to various animals.
There are birds of every kind that surround you including, Hawks and various raptors, Woodpeckers, Jays, Canadian Geese, Loons to name a few. There are also a pair of Bald Eagles that live in the trees near the lake. It is a special treat to see the Bald Eagles chirping while soaring over the lake.
For more leisurely pursuits, you can go to the old gold-mining town of Julian, about 9 miles up the road. Once there, you can peruse quaint shops, visit the winery, go on gold mine tours, stop by the soda fountain, or indulge in fine or casual dining. Of course, Julian is best known for home-made Apple Pie and you have your choice of several pie making bakeries.
As mentioned, we have very comfortable real beds for 10 and the lake house can accommodate more if needed. (In this case, the owners would need to be contacted to discuss these arrangements as there is a $20.00 fee for each additional guest.)
We welcome you to the Cuyamaca Four Seasons House and we know that you will be mesmerized by the views, pleased with the amenities, and energized by the beauty and nature that surrounds you.
