I was saddened to read some of the negative reviews I saw posted regarding this wonderful property in Julian. Angels Landing is a lovely country inn with a personal touch (you actually converse and interact with the owners) I am saddened by the misrepresentation (well water contains high levels of minerals and is yellowish in color, which would cause discoloration - this is NOT dirty water). To be fair, I've stayed at the Inn over 20 times and always had a pleasant experience.
I personally have been booking Scrapbook Retreats at Angels Landing for going on 7 years now. The staff could not be more helpful and accomodating. If there is any problems or questions, there is always someone on hand to immediatly assist you.
The lodge rooms that I book (5 times a year, with a group of 20 women) are quaint and a little rustic. You are in the mountains (literally) right in the midst of a gorgeous hillside with amazing views. The common room is very large with a beautiful rock fireplace that they keep stocked with wood and will build you a fire.
The catering, which I've utilized on every trip for my large group is very good! They have a wide selection of menu items and I've found the prices to be very resonable.
Overall, I've always had a wonderful experience at Angels Landing and have already booked 5 Scrapbook Get-a-Ways for 2007. I love the experiece of being in the country and enjoy the old-fashioned personal experience that is missing from big-chain hotels.
