Cabin for Christmas?

Dreaming of sitting ’round your woodstove, decorating a tree, cut from your land? How about filling up the cabin with family, friends and hot chocolate for all!? We have a fun forest fixer that is looking for a new family to freshen up and enjoy.

Bruce and Lola Graves came to Palomar and built this cozy cabin to stay in while they designed and built the ‘Big House’ across the road. They had such a wonderful time with their little kids, picking out the location to build both, while insuring the privacy of each. They finished the cabin in 1971. It had a big loft bedroom upstairs and downstairs a sliding door out to a covered patio. Later that was enclosed and is now the sleeping room. Bruce and Lola were very active in those early days of our Volunteer Fire Department and the PMPO. Neighbors thought it would be a good idea to have a Palomar Mountain Land Owners Association. Later that name was changed to be the Palomar Mountain Planning Organization. Bruce was chair for that board for several decades.

Lola enjoyed so much her time on the mountain and and loved having family and friends up for special mountain memories. She made her homemade soap, creative crafts and many pies for fund raisers for the building of the fire department. So the cabin owner has some history here these past 50 years and the PMPO and other organizations are always looking for more folks to volunteer on our favorite mountain. It will be fun to meet the next owners!

Here is a photo gallery for you and all the MLS info.

Coming up? Bundle up! Burrrr! It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!
