Jim, the innkeeper, has been working very hard on the property. I have been watching the reviews and was apprehensive about our stay, since it was booked for us by someone else. I can see where Jim has made some changes for the better. We stayed in the Tranquility Room. It was large and very quiet, but the sheets were... More

If you have your head up your A!!, and drive a car more than college tuition, keep looking. This little INN, a couple of miles from Julian, is simple and over seen by a simple caring guy, named Jim. It will remind you of a stay at Grandma's. We found it rustic and do-able. Our stay of only 1 night... More

We stayed there 1-10/11-15 It is a great location, easy driving directions, away from the busy town so you get the country atmosphere, yet close enough to drive to town in minutes for many dining shopping and visitor options.Parking is easy safe well lit location. The mountain view room was clean comfortable tastefully decorated well stocked with needed amenities and... More

Me and my wife were told of Tucker Peak Lodge by a couple of friends who stayed here on their honeymoon.So after calling for details, we were granted a referral discounted rate for a one night's stay. Despite the fact that it's on the top of a kind of steep hill, the place was really good. Jim, the inkeeper was... More

My husband and I just recently stayed here for the first time and it was everything we had hoped it would be. The views were amazingly beautiful, the Lodge was cozy, and they even had a jacuzzi tub that was an added bonus! I loved the porch and rocking chairs as well. Such a peaceful place. It was the perfect... More

We booked a night in this place and what a mistake this was, a $224.00 mistake. We arrived in town well before check in but since we are not familiar with the area decided to find the place and make sure we knew where it was. And boy are we glad we did. Upon arrival we had to turn up... More

As others have said, the check-in process is self-serve. Ok, no big deal. (I marked the service as "poor" because they're wasn't any... never saw any Lodge employee.) Most of the rooms (like ours) adjoin the central living room... could be a big problem if there are rowdy, midnight-owl guests but it wasn't a problem when we were there. Also... More
