Orchard Hill Country Inn is as good as advertised. Facilities, staff, service, and breakfast were all outstanding. We stayed in Jonagold Room....highly recommend it. Very convenient to the small number of stores on Main Street in Julian.....about a two block walk.

We had decided to extend our travel budget and splurge on a cottage room at the Orchard Hill Country Inn. Upon arrival we were greeted warmly and accompanied to our room which was very cozy and nicely decorated. It was spacious with a kitchenette, fireplace and good size bathroom with jet tub. We arrived on a very rainy/cold day and... More

We stayed at Orchard Hill last Saturday night and had a wonderful experience, in spite of the weather! Saturday afternoon we sat around the fire in the living room there and chatted with the daughter of the owners and her husband (whose names I wish I could remember!) along with some other guests. She and her husband were charming and... More

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

We acknowledge that our lodge rooms are small and is the reason they are lesser in price from our larger cottage rooms. However, we try... 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...

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
