Yucaipa? The close-knit community in California’s San Bernardino County isn’t exactly the vacation destination on the tip of everyone’s tongue, but the town has a lot to recommend it, including great recreation opportunities and a quaint downtown. In fact given the town’s commitment to lifelong learning, health, and wellness, it might just be a dream spot for retirees.

Another good thing about Yucaipa? The real estate isn’t stratospherically priced. This home, sits on nearly 30 acres of prime real estate and its hillside location is unmatched in the area. It is a  custom ” True Log Home” and if you’ve got a hankering for rustic real estate this is your spot.

Come up here and you pretty much never need to leave. The location enjoys privacy, a view of the entire valley (step out onto the wraparound deck to get the full experience), a private water source and access to the National Forest. The land offers plenty of room for additional structures and you also get your own private pond.

The home itself is done on a grand scale and clearly has been owned by someone with a love for both hunting and fishing. Animals skins and heads decorate the log cabin walls along with a whole school of mounted fish.
