Day Trip: Hubbell Home & Art Studio Tour with Visit to Historic Julian
Discover a hidden gem in our nearby Cuyamaca Mountains and visit the fascinating James Hubbell home and art studio near Julian for an exclusive tour. As a painter, sculptor, stained-glass artist, poet, visionary and architect, James Hubbell’s intent when he began building his mountaintop retreat was to create a home that appeared to grow out of the landscape and blend naturally with the gifts of nature. Granite boulders and soft oak-shaded hills with russet etchings of manzanita influenced the design. During your docent-guided tour you’ll see gardens, artwork, the pool, fountains and several buildings including the studios where artists will be working, the renowned “Boys’ House” and the “Chapel.” Free time for lunch on your own in downtown Julian.
