This property is something I would typically find on Airbnb not hotels.com. It's not really an inn because there is no on site staff or services. But caretakers are only an email or phone call away and are prompt to respond. It's set up like a vacation rental with email instructions and keys inside lock boxes. There are 3 places... More

I made a last minute trip to Julian the day after Thanksgiving. We didn't pre-book a place to stay, and when we arrived in town, we couldn't find a room. We called around to all the B&Bs, and luckily this one answered, even though it was almost 9pm. We set everything up over the phone, super quick and easy, and... More

Hello! Oops! Sorry about the jacuzzi temperature. We leave it at 100 degrees midweek to cut costs but it gets up to 104 degrees in no time. It usually takes about 30 minutes to get really hot. The house is hidden from the road and I am so glad we were able to have you as a guest. Thank you... More

I love that families can come here and have an enjoyable time, whether it is rock climbing, playing on the Cedar Works chemical free and splinter free playground, relaxing in the 50 jet jacuzzi, walking the labyrinth, biking and scootering around the property, enjoying the stars at night or enjoying the smell and site of the bonfire. Thank you so... More

I don't have time to just sit and read but this was the perfect setting for it. The family in the downstairs unit had two children and a dog and all their chattering just added to the relaxation. We had two wonderful meals nearby - Wynola Pizza and Jeremy's on the Hill - and spent some time walking around Julian... More
