Scrapbook Cabin

The Mermaid Tears Scrapbook Siren Cabin is the perfect place for up to 6 people to enjoy a peaceful getaway in a private location. We are located on close to an acre of land in the exclusive area of Pine Hills, 4 miles from the historic town of Julian in Northern San Diego. Home to the wild turkeys and deer, our water trough gives you front row seating to morning and afternoon migrations from our living room or balcony.

We have created a 10’x26’ dedicated crafting room where each guest gets his or her own 6 ft table for plenty of space and comfortable rolling, padded chairs.  It is on the same level as the driveway so you can wheel your cart & supplies through the garage and into the room.

sbc_sml_0004_scprm_2Daylight-true overhead lighting means you don’t have to carry your personal light with you.  These are not lights you get at your hardware store, but rather professional studio lighting for film and television that has an accurate daylight color temperature.

We have a craft sink to wash out inks and stamps, a microwave, and an under-counter fridge.



A Sizzix Big Shot as well as a Cricut are available for your use with some fonts and dies.  All guests are welcome to use paper scraps for die cutting & stickers from our “trash to treasure” basket.  We also have an entire bookcase filled with scrapbook magazines and idea books for your creative inspiration.

Unlike most scrapbook retreat cabins, we did not sacrifice the living space for the scrapbook accommodations.  You have full use of the 3BR, 2BA house with full kitchen, dining room, living room, and wrap-around decks.  There are 2 TV’s with cable should you desire a break from scrapbooking and we have arranged “order for eating in” at some of the local restaurants, order ahead, eat there. We also have arranged a 10% wine discount at the Menghini Winery where there are picnic tables and a relaxing atmosphere for a lunch or just a well-deserved break.

Scrapbook Siren Cabin does not provide food or drinks or toiletries.

We do not book per person, the cabin must be booked in its entirety.

Additional time may be purchased on Sunday if there is no other reservation on Monday.

Guests with severe allergies be advised that we currently accept pre-approved dogs to inhabit our units. If you feel that dog dander or animal related triggers may occur refer to the Julian Chamber of Commerce at www.julianca.com or at 760-765-1857 for assistance in finding a suitable room for your stay.


The Scrapbook Siren Cabin is a single family residential house with forced heating & air conditioning as well as electricity and running water.
