Built in the Classic Mid-Century Style

Saved from imminent demolition, owners David and Cindy began restoring this historic property in 1993.  The building was constructed in 1958 in the California modern style with Mondrian influences. Although the architect is unknown it is possible that Joseph Eickler, Cliff May or Albert Frey had a hand in it’s design.

“This property is a Mid-century modern historical hotel with lots of character. We had a very pleasant room on the upper floor, facing the pool… We had a nice dinner in the restaurant, good food and very friendly staff. The location is great, outside of the town and immediately next to the state park.” — am

Olympic Size Swimming Pool

The Olympic size pool (25-yard lap lanes) was constructed in 1947 to accommodate the guests who occupied the 56 original bungalows. This was one of the largest privately owned pools in San Diego county for many years. Divided in two sections, guests can relax in the wading pool or swim laps in the deep end.  Although we have plans to solar heat the pool, the pool is currently “natural”. Water temperatures are best March through October. The temperature of the spa is consistently 102.5 degrees Fahrenheit year-round.
