My wife and I enjoyed our stay at the Butterfield Bed and Breakfast. We stayed for three nights in the Feathernest room, which is their smallest but the only one available at the time. But it was, as they say, quite cozy. The bed was a little smaller than we like but it's a small room and worked out fine.... More

We found this B & B from TA and we were not disappointed. I reserve "excellent" reviews for only the best properties so please don't mis-interpret my rating. We arrived late so the keys and instructions were posted on the outside of the inn. Found everything that we needed and enjoyed the Rosebud Cottage. Used my Boy Scout skills to... More

First, let me say I can't see making Julian a regular getaway. It was a nice place, very relaxing, but I feel once you've visited the town, you've done all there is....at least for a drive as far away as LA. But, my wife and I did love the Butterfield Bed and Breakfast. The property is very well kept, there... More

What a quaint and beautiful place this is. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The room was so nicely decorated and incredibly comfortable. The wood-burning fireplace in the room was the perfect touch. Outside the scenery was so pretty and the surroundings really peaceful. Breakfast was delicious, and the hospitality unbeatable. We will definitely be coming back!

This homey little B&B made a relaxing, small town getaway. The room (Rosebud) was very comfortable; it had a futon for a couch a wood-burning iron fireplace, plus all the amenities necessary for a weekend getaway. We celebrated a Valentines Day, Birthday, Presidents Day weekend combo and it worked out great. The owners, Ed and Dawn, make a hearty breakfast... More

If you are looking for a relaxing getaway in Julian, then the Butterfield Inn is what you are looking for! My wife and I stayed in the Stanza Italia room, and found it to be cozy and romantic, which was the perfect combination to celebrate her birthday. The room was clean, which was of most importance to us due to... More

Nice quite area near to Julian. Comfortable room. Heater in bathroom (need that for my home!). I wanted a hook to hang my shirt in the bathroom. It was there. I wondered if the outside stairs were too dark coming back late at night. Then noticed each step had a low level light. All the trails were lighted too. Nice... More

My husband and I stayed her for our anniversary and we thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm an author and we were doing a book-related event in Julian and it was just a hop skip and a jump away from where we needed to be. We stayed in the Feather Nest and it was cozy and just right. The meals were delicious... More

My wife and I just had a classic Julian experience: apple picking, walking the town, visiting the family-owned stores, dinner at the Grille, all capstoned by a stay at Butterfield. What a lovely property! It was enjoyable to spend the evening in the parlor, fiddling on the piano, looking through their books and movie collection, and playing some board games... More

This was a great bed and breakfast! A first for us to Julian. Our room, the smallest one of all, "the Feathers Nest" was clean, cozy and comfortable. The breakfast was outstanding and the owners delightful and gracious. We will go back!
