We stayed two nights in a lodge room it is hard to assign a rating to this Inn. At a lower price it would be 5 stars, but the room was not up to cost. Our lodge room was nicely decorated, but small and dated (how many guests really want to read 3 volumes (not issues, but volumes) of National... More

I think this was the most relaxing place we have ever stayed. From people that check you in, to the chef, to the maids--they are all so friendly and considerate. The room was very, very nice, it was clean, it had a refrigerator which had free drinks of any kind in it. They suggested wonderful places to eat for dinner!... More

We stayed here approximately 12 years ago when it was new. They have done an outstanding job maintaining and upgrading the facilities. It looks as good, if not better, now than it did so many years ago. It was fantastic then and better now. I have traveled extensively, with nearly 1.5 million miles on an airline, so I have stayed...

First of all, from the time I reserved the room to the time we left everyone was extraordinary. We pulled up to this charming and beautiful inn and were greeted by the most lovely people...they even offered to help us with our luggage. When you get in the room it is so cutely decorated and smells so clean not to... More

Downtown Julian is very picturesque with a large number of historic buildings and wonderful community spirit. One highlight was dozens of musicians showing up on the steps of the Julian Town Hall to play fiddles, guitars, mandolins, the bass, zydeco board, etc ... The music was infectious and we had a great time as they moved from location to location... More

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
