Description of the Palomar Mountain vacation chalet rental
UPPER MEADOW LODGE on Palomar Mountain is a breathtaking lodge style home, with five luxurious suites, and four and a half baths. The 800 sq ft great room welcomes retreat groups comfortably and can be set up for you as a lounge or as a meeting circle for up to 40.

In addition there is a private 200 square foot cottage that offers a bed and bathroom of its own, and is settled among the ancient Cedar grove just a stone's throw from the main lodge house.

Upper Meadow Lodge's 'Meadow View Room' is an added bonus to our guests! This spacious 500+ square foot space with wireless internet can accommodate corporate meetings, crafters, yoga retreats, scrap bookers and quilters to name a few. This very functional multi use space includes a caterers' kitchen complete with stove, oven, full size refrigerator & sink. Enjoy beautiful views of the bracken fern meadow and distant Cuyamaca & Laguna Mountain Ranges.

Located just 1.5 hours from San Diego, 2 hours from Los Angeles, Upper Meadow Lodge, is secluded, elegant, warm and inviting with stunning views from the top of Palomar Mountain.

Wow!! What a glorious place! We are deeply grateful to be here for our retreat.
- Board of Directors, Avalon Springs

Created for large gatherings, the large gourmet kitchen features a professional 6-burner stove with griddle and double oven, and ample counter-space, storage, and everything you need to cook for a crowd. The bedrooms are so beautiful, each with beautiful picture windows framing the fern meadow, wildflowers, forest, and views off the mountain... there will be no issue of guests arguing over getting the "best" one!

SOLITUDE. Standing quietly on over 8 acres of mountaintop woods, and a short walk to the State Forest, Upper Meadow Lodge provides a private, silent oasis of peace and tranquility in ancient Cedar and Oak forest.

We had an enchanted evening under a blanket of stars. We felt a little closer to heaven up here. Kathy A.

Upper Meadow Lodge is the perfect home base from which to explore Southern California, including Disneyland, San Diego Zoo, The Wild Animal Park, Julian, Anza Borrego and Palm Springs deserts. Harrah's at Rincon, Pauma, Santa Ysabel, and Pala Casinos offer fine dining, gaming, and spa services nearby, and the shopping and dining of Escondido, Oceanside, or Temecula are just 45 minutes away.

Mark stood in the living room this morning, a cup of coffee in his hand & said, "I could totally live here." My thoughts exactly.
Thank You!

Owner Supplied Testimonials

WOW! We had a great time with our entire family. The facility was absolutely perfect for our 3 day event. Each family had their own bedroom when quiet time was needed. But most of our time was spent in the kitchen, family and dining areas just having fun. We also spent hours on the front and back patios visiting and watching the kids play on the swings, chase bugs and lizards and throw frisbees through the meadow. At night we looked at the moon and even saw the rings of Saturn through the telescope. We walked through the woods, visited the Observatory and went to Julian to buy pies and ride the Pioneer railways and pan for gold. An absolutely wonderful family reunion I am sure we will all be talking about this for years to come. Thanks for providing such an ideal location

We had the most amazing weekend here. The property is absolutely gorgeous, and has every amenity you can imagine. The lodge is beautifuly maintained and immaculate. The beds were so comfortable, and each room has it's own charm. There is a little store not too far away, just in case you forget something. It is so lovely and I highly recommend it! We didn't want to leave.
