Lake Cuyamaca Lodge is your opportunity for an unforgettable stay at San Diego’s Mountain Retreat Paradise, just 9 miles south of historic Julian, only 1 hour from the San Diego Skyline and Bay. Enjoy Nature’s Four Seasons at approximately 4700 ft elevation surrounded by the most picturesque lake and mountain views that literally manifest as “living art” from your room, or the bountiful, covered viewing decks. Our 4 acre property is adjacent to 26,000 acres of Rancho Cuyamaca State Park that is contiguous to Anza-Borrego State Park's 600,000 acres, which makes this the largest recreational area in California.

Rejuvenate your soul among abundant wildlife, over 200 species of birds, deer feeding just feet away, migrating as well as nesting Hummingbirds; beautiful, gentle, horses to admire, all with main Highway 79 convenience. Restore inner peace, healing relaxation, as well as a feeling of solitude without isolation amid the beauty of nature.

Multi-skilled recreational opportunities are available for all who love the outdoors, by way of designated trails, thru streams, meadows, and mountains. Bicyclists, hikers, equestrians, fishermen, hunters, motorcyclists, and motorized off-road enthusiasts all have adventures waiting. Challenge yourself to the nearby Pacific Crest Trail, take a stroll among the trees at Fletcher Island, or just relax in a rocking chair on the deck to watch Eagles soar, and a variety of wildlife in their habitat.

At night the stars are countless, bright and shining canopy of wonder with not many sights as beautiful as a Full Moon over Lake Cuyamaca. From our decks enjoy astronomer’s heaven or a romantic vision of delight.

We love dogs and pets of every kind, but, unfortunately dogs frighten the wildlife away. Children are a precious blessing, but, we cater to adult relaxation and restoration.
