The Gingerbread House... Caldera Spa. One-of-a-Kind in the World... Romantic 1930’s Austrian Cottage completely Restored, with every modern luxury imaginable. Discover the Ornate wood carvings throughout this home created by John Henry Montgomery.
My name is Rick Dyer. I will be your Host when you come and stay at this very special place known as 'The Gingerbread House'...
Experience the Enchantment of The Gingerbread House... The beautiful Ornate wood carvings you will discover throughout this home were created by John Henry Montgomery. Henry spent the final 20 years of his life making this house into a home by creating the detailed woodwork and ornate carvings on display both inside and outside The Gingerbread House.
Mr. Montgomery loved working with wood. We are told: Each day John created wonderful details, ornate corbels and detailed carvings using his small wood-shop located a short distance from the house. The 1934 Gingerbread house was his life. John painstakingly carved, salvaged and recycled all the wood and detail used in this beautiful Austrian style home. The ornate nearly ten foot (10') Wolf-Dragon found outside the guest bedroom was his final creation for the Gingerbread house before he died. It was designed to be a bird feeder.

.We had a great time at the Gingerbread house. It was a home away from home, so comfortable, clean and relaxing. The beautiful new appliances and extras throughout the home made our vacation. The outdoor hot tub jacuzzi was the highlight. The welcome gift of goodies from local vendors in Julian, the complimentary breakfast at Grannies kitchen and apple cherry cider in the fridge was so nice. We had a great time at the Smith Pioneer Gold mine Tour that was five minutes from the house. It was a two hour tour of the 1850s gold mining adventures,with a ore car train ride, taking you back to the gold mining days. The weather was beautiful and our day trip to the quaint town of Julian was memorable. Thank you so much!

Owner response: Thank you for your review. I believe the Pet-friendly was accidently checked. We do not allow pets for this particular home. Here is only one of many reasons why: In our experience with other vacation rentals that allow pets, there are problems with territorial marking... Your pet may not mark; however, when the next visiting pet smells the prior pet they will mark, etc. Thank you.
The Gingerbread House Is Awesome!

.From the moment we picked up our key we were treated like royalty. They gave us breakfast vouchers when we arrived. We followed someone to the house where we were given a tour and instructions on everything so we were not left in the dark. There were presents waiting for us inside the house. The house is so adorable and has all the modern conveniences. There is a washing machine, and washer and dryer as well as a jacuzzi and all the firewood you need. I simply could not say enough nice things about the house and everyone we were involved with, in the transaction. We can not wait to return.

Owner response: Hi Giulio: Thank you for taking the time to post a review. In order to constantly improve The Gingerbread House... We just added a brand-new (and larger) 50 gallon hot-water heater. Thank you. Kindest Regards, -Rick.

.My sisters and I went to Julian for the first time last week, and stayed at the Gingerbread House. Rick and his team couldn't have been more accommodating, personally ensuring we found the house ok, and showing us where everything was and how it all worked. The little details, like making sure we had a lighter for the fire, and which 3D glasses were the best ones for watching the movies they provided, made it all seem so personal. Rick even treated the three of us to breakfast at the amazing Granny's by giving us vouchers - we wouldn't have known where to go in town without Rick's guidance. The house was beyond spotless, and the jacuzzi outside was the perfect place to watch shooting stars and drink the wine purchased at a local winery earlier that day. All in all, a perfect weekend getaway. We can't wait to come again!
Recommended for: Families with young children, girls getaway, sightseeing.
Owner response: Hi Nichol: Thank you for feed-back on our breakfast vouchers. It is a little special something we do not advertise. Glad you enjoyed the food at Granny's Kitchen and received excellent service.
