Reserved a weekend here to celebrate our 6th wedding anniversary. Upon our arrival, the receptionists delivered to our room some hors d'oeuvres, a cake, and champagne!! The property is very cute (according to the wife LOL) equipped with hammocks, picnic benches, pond, wild flowers, frogs and wild turkeys. Go during the off-season and look for their 2-night incentives for a... More

Spent a fabulous weekend in Julian staying at this inn on the hill just above the main street of quaint Juian, east of Escondido. The cottages and main house are beautiful with great views of the area. The full breakfast is delicious as is the nightly wine and appetizer afternoon. The staff and owners are very friendly and made our... More

We were lucky enough to get a room last minute on a very busy week-end. After a day driving through the desert all day, this beautiful Shangri-La fit our needs wonderfully. they have a gracious afternoon get-together with lovely snacks, beer and wine to enjoy as you sit on the patio watching the sunset. The lodge and the rooms were... More

A block off the main road and up a short hill is a wonderful treasure. Tremendous views, gorgeous rooms, soft music and excellent food awaits! The staff are caring and responsive, the surroundings are restful, and the beds welcoming. Pat, the owner, had done an incredible job on this inn and comes in daily to chat with guests. You must...

Amazing place!! Nestled in Julian, we felt like we were in another world. Quiet and romantic, it was lovely. Fresh baked cookies and salted caramels were there to greet us in our room with a cozy fireplace. We ventured out to the quaint town for a great dinner in the blustery wind and fog. Breakfast was delicious in the main... More

The room is at the end of the hallway facing the back of the lodge with a nice view and is very quiet. The room and the... More

This was an awesome stay. It is a bed and breakfast wasn't excited about the breakfast. The staff is really friendly and the room was truly amazing. The staff brought me a birthday cake that was amazing and some decorations very cute. It is a tad bit pricey and when they are not booked like the off season, I think... More

We spent 2 nights here right after Christmas. The main street of Julian was packed with people, but the lobby and lounge of Orchard Hill were warm and charming. The public rooms are smallish, though, so we were very aware of the owners and staff going about their business. They are friendly, but very present. The inn rooms are also... More

First of all, the location is perfect for taking in the shopping of Julian. It's about 2 blocks off of the main drag-but a world away from the crowds of day-trippers. It sits upon a hill overlooking the town. We had a beautiful view from our room. The staff is super friendly & the owners were there at some point... More

This was the perfect place for a cozy warm Thanksgiving get-away. My wife and I were just married earlier in the week and we came here to enjoy a little honeymoon and Thanksgiving. We were NOT disappointed. Darrell & Pat share a love for going above and beyond, treating their guests the way they would treat their family. This place... More
