My wife and I just spent two mid-week days at the Artists' Loft in Julian, CA. The cabin is absolutely lovely, inside and out. The view is magnificent. We were visited by several local deer early in the morning on the second day of our visit. The owners-managers were friendly and helpful. I hope to return during the fall, winter,... More

I guess the title says it all. But that said, This little piece of heaven should be shared and experienced by all. We now call my 12 year old daughter the turkey whisperer. She'd hear a turkey and tear off into the woods to gobble at it. They always gobbled back. We were there 10" and I knew I wanted... More

The perfect mountain retreat - completely quiet, completely self-contained, stunning views and every homey comfort provided. We would gladly buy it and live there full time if we could...so glad we can at least "borrow it" now and then. I love everything about this place..sunny porch for reading, meticulous kitchen with quirky dishes, beautiful aged wood floors, wonderful textiles everywhere,... More

My husband I just returned from the most relaxing weekend at Big Cat Cabin. Chuck met us upon our arrival and provided a very cordial, informative overview of the cabin and the surrounding area. It was great to hear about the history of the cabin and all of the special touches Chuck and his wife have added over the years!... More

We, a couple of good friends in need of some serious relaxation, made our way to Big Cat Cabin. The place was (is) too beautiful for words...and the smells of pine, and cedar that infuse the cabin...oh my! The cabin is tastefully decorated with many antiques and fine art photography that will please the eye. Just outside, many of the... More

I had followed with great interest the story of Chuck and Nan after the original Artist's Loft had burned (and their home) during the Julian fires. After they rebuilt I booked the Artist's Loft to celebrate my husband's birthday 2 years ago, and the place was fabulous. Because we had such a great time we booked it again this past... More

We have now stayed in all three cabins that Nan and Chuck operate, they are all unique, well maintained, enriching and we can't wait to return. This recent visit we stayed in Big Cat Cabin, it has all the charm of an old mountain cabin with updated features like great sound system, fresh bread waiting, well stocked kitchen (with fiestaware),...

We stayed at Big Cat Cabin in December and loved every moment!. On arrival as we parked the car a family of deer were peacefully watching us. Later wild turkeys flocked to the trees near the cabin for the night. We could hear them flapping their wings to fly straight up to a branch. I had no idea turkeys did... More

We just returned from the Strawberry Hill Cabin, everything was prefect right from the start. Music playing when you enter the cabin, great selection of cd's to enjoy, loaf of fresh local Julian bread for morning breakfast. The refrigerator is stocked with eggs, cream, butter, jam and there are fresh coffee beans with grinder! Perfect in every way. The kitchen... More

I found the The Artist's Loft to be everything I had hoped it would be, and there were still so many wonderful little things that added even more. The owners truly have thought of everything. I was surprised at every turn from the supplied board games and puzzles to the hand-made soap in the shower. Literally everything that I could... More
