Downstairs Tour

Up the west porch and through the front door you are greeted by the heart of the home. The stone fireplace and hearth were built by the Bailey boys around the turn of the last century. On close inspection you will see the handmade quarry marks in the two granite foot stones.

The home’s 12 inch thick walls reflect the original adobe bricks fashioned on site from the local clays. Having dried the bricks in the sun, Native Americans helped to assemble the original first story – it was always cool in the summer but was also warm in the winter.

Today a modern forced air furnace keeps the whole house snug under thermostatic control. But there is still nothing quite like the glow of a warming fire on a cool winter’s night.

Adjacent to the living room, and directly across from the fireplace, is the parlor. Interior French doors open into this combination eating room (seating for four), music room (with an upright piano), and traditional kids hangout.

Moving ahead from the living room we pass through the “formal” dining room – where the oak table seats six. To the left please notice the exterior French doors leading out to the north porch and onto the lawn. They provide a great view of the meadow below.

And, of Course, The Ever Popular Kitchen. Everyone seems to hang out here at one time or another. The kitchen’s dining nook sports an antique round oak table with seating for four (but usually more) whose presence tends to promote lively banter at all hours.

 

Bailey's Palomar Resort, Palomar Mountain, Vacation Rentals and Event Center

The kitchen amenities include all the usual items, including a gas stove and range, plus a gas barbecue on the back porch. Micro-wave oven, refrigerator, dishwasher and coffee maker, plus a washer and drier, round out the major appliance count. The kitchen windows look out upon a grassy hillside spotted with apple, cherry and pear trees. The view includes the three covered springs, which are draped in hop vines and blackberries throughout the summer. The kitchen is also home to our blue glass collection – a family tradition since we don’t-know-when.

Then here is the Master Suite – Located downstairs for easy access, the Master Suite contains a queen size bed and has an adjoining private restroom with shower. This was Dr. and Mrs. Bailey’s room during the three decades they hosted guests here at the their mountain top resort.
