We stayed at the Gnome House and it was like a dream! Everything in the room was gnome related and it was magical! I couldn't get over it! Very very nice! I was amazed at the attention to detail! Would definitely go back!

My husband Greg and I "Finally" decided to get married after "Shacking up" for 5 plus years. My sister Jennifer is who originally referred me to Shadow Mountain Ranch! I wanted a simple, sweet and non dramatic wedding that would cater to my earthly self... (No shoes, no black ties, just good friends and family enjoying our celebration!) I rented... More

My boyfriend and I booked a weekend in the Gnome Home for our one year anniversary. Neither of us have ever been to Julian before and we stumbled upon Shadow Mt. Ranch when searching for places to stay. Everything at this location was amazing! The hospitality, delicious breakfast, scenery, and above all...privacy. Although, I wouldn't recommend the Gnome Home specifically... More

Tracy was amazingly hospitable as we checked in, I had a long, hot bath in the clawfoot tub (*love* those!) and we spent the afternoon visiting with the horses in the pasture behind the inn, then came into our cottage (the 2-bedroom, 2-bath Manzanita Cottage) and lost all track of time in front of the fireplace. We overslept the following... More

This must be one of the most charming places in whole California. We stayed at the Gnome house (2 people) and Tree House (1 person). We absolutely loved everything and will go back, for sure!!

Shadow Mountain Ranch B&B is located just outside the quaint Historic town of Julian, in San Diego County's foothills. We found it by accident, and boy...are we glad we did ! The owner Jim, and his Son Tracy, have a special interest in making their guests feel like an extended part of thier family. We met Emily the Grandaughter, and... More

We wanted to stay in town, but everything was sold out. We found Shadow Mountain Ranch and are very glad we did. Loretta and Jim are such lovely people and the breakfasts each day were AMAZING. The only thing I did not like (we stayed in the gnome home) was that the bathroom was not separate from the bedroom. It... More

I have been to Shadow Mountain a couple of times now, I love the atmosphere not as much as I love the people who run it. Loretta and Jim immediately became FAMILY. If you're looking for a wonderful quiet place to relax please check it out. You will be missed Loretta

The cabin was immaculate and beautifully decorated with a nice cozy, warm feel. The host and hostess are lovely people and provide a wonderful getaway with peace and quiet and total relaxation.

My husband and I went to Julian to visit one of his clients on Oct16th. We stayed at Shadow Mountain Ranch which is a bed and breakfast for the night. We chose the tree house and it was a good choice, now I can tell you. Loretta and Jim, the owners, are friendly and helpful. Our room was small but... More
