My husband and I stayed at the Wikiup B&B over Veteran's Day weekend to celebrate our birthdays. Our stay was wonderful! If you've never visited Julian before, GO - the town is quaint and charming and the countryside is just beautiful. We chose the Wikiup because of its location and rave reviews on Yelp and TripAdvisor. We were glad we did! It's about a mile or so outside of the main town - a very quick drive. Main street gets very busy and we felt like we had our own private retreat in the woods, far away from city noises.
The grounds are so peaceful and beautiful complete with a couple of resident kitties, a newfoundland, and a few llamas which you can feed and pet. Lee and Linda were very warm and welcoming. We stayed in "Klondike Kate's Shady Lady" and loved it. It isn't the most private room as the deck is right next to the main house entrance, but you can pull down the deck shades and poof - it's private. Or try the Stargazer - it's probably the most private room and it too has a hot tub on its deck. The hot tub on our deck was really nice on a cold night and had wonderful views of the property, and the fireplace in the room really kept things toasty! Hopefully you'll wake up with an appetite...breakfast is to die for! On day 1 we enjoyed caramel french toast and frittata, and on day 2 it was "inside out caramel apple" with egg souffle and an assortment of freshly made breads.
We'll be back for another visit!
