About Nathan Phelps
Nathan Phelps grew up with fond memories visiting Palomar each winter for fun in the snow. His parents lived on the mountain in the mid 70s, sold their house, then bought it back 20 years later. Now, full time since 1998 there are always fun times on the mountain. In 2011, Nathan was living in San Diego investing in Fix and Flips when he happened on this fixer cabin. He just had to have it - but not to flip. He plans to keep Cabin Fever forever as a rental to share with folks like you! Nate's mom, Bonnie Phelps, has been the 'Resident Realtor' on Palomar since the beginning of the Century. All communication will be with Bonnie as she enjoys managing the cabin and sharing the mountain with our guests. Nathan's brother and sister-in-law purchased a ranch next door to his folks to raise their four kids up here. So, Nathan couldn't resist, sold his place in San Diego and also moved up full time fall of 2016. The mountain is a family affair and we invite you to experience this beautiful area for yourself, too!

Why Nathan Phelps chose Palomar Mountain
The cabin really needed someone to breath in new life. It was a very tired, very abused fixer. The floor was bowed and you couldn't get the door open. That wasn't a problem since you could just step in through the big, broken window. Nate saw the vision to create something wonderful. After completely gutting and restoring from the foundation to the roof, it's all brand new. This is the first property that Nathan acquired with no intention of ever selling. A huge bonus is that there is another fixer cabin on the same property. Already named 'Shady Oaks', it is presently used for storage, patiently waiting for him to wave his magic wand again. Please stay tuned! Eventually the goal is to have two very unique cabins available for larger groups. Be assured that no construction will happen during your visit. That's a promise!
What makes this Cabin unique
Another reason he could not resist owning these two little diamonds-in-the-rough, was the access. It is great to have such good parking when we are treated to a Winter Wonderland. The property also has some wonderful oaks, firs and cedars with a couple big boulders peppered around the land. There is an amazing chorus of birds to enjoy from the deck. His initial goal of creating a 'Vintage, Modern Cabin' has paid off and is appreciated by all. You have the comforts of home, with the vintage touches that remind many of fond visits to Grandparent's homes in days gone by. Folks also have fun seeing the 'Before and After' photos in the Welcome Book, of the progress creating this charming cabin with new additions all the time. Ah, Cabin Fever is very special! We hope to have you as guests, and invite you to share this link with your friends! Thank you so much!
