A beautiful, serene atmosphere drew us in as we unwound from our drive from LA. Our room yielded privacy and comfort that we're used to from the modern 4-5star hotels, and this place was to par, plus the warmth of friendly hosts and animals, as well as the well thought out gourmet breakfasts. We can't say enough praise for this... More

Stayed here for two nights celebrating our anniversary. Stayed in the Shady Lady room, very cute and nice hot tub on patio. The grounds were wonderful and well kept. Loved the llamas and dog as we are animal lovers. The breakfast were amazing, better than anything you could get in town. The property was a 5 minute drive from downtown... More

I had been going on and on about wanting to see the meteor shower. On Saturday after a long weekend of work I came home Saturday afternoon to my husband saying he had a surprise for me. When we arrived at the wiki up we were welcomed by, I think her name was Linda. She showed us around the front... More

We stayed in the Star Gazer Room and couldn't believe all the wonderful touches...like our own private Jacuzzi under the stars...but Linda and Lee took us on a tour of all the rooms and we discovered every room was as unique and wonderful as our room. We enjoyed Linda and Lee's company almost as much as Linda's breakfasts (she is... More

We just got home from wikiup b & b, Linda and Lee are the best hosts a person could ask for. We stayed in the shady lady room which is just gorgeous, and we loved the private patio and hot tub. Watching the mass amount of hummingbirds at the feeders was magical. We loved feeding the llamas. The breakfasts were... More

My husband and I stayed at the Wikiup Bed and Breakfast for our anniversary. It was my year to plan. My husband was skeptical, but when we left he was the Wikiup's biggest fan. Linda and Lee were terrific! The property is gorgeous. There are so many beautiful trees and birds that at times we felt like we were staying... More

Stayed in the Star Gazer room with the private hot tub. Decor was really cool, like being in a spaceship lol! Very close to Julian (dont let the map fool you, it's actually closer than it seems). Went there for the Blues Fest and had a wonderful stay. Friendly owners, great breakfast and you can feed the Llamas!

I so thank you for your descriptive comments about Wikiup. As soon as I read the word "magical", I knew you had stayed in Garrett's StarGazer room, Drmacme. That room is a favorite with new guests and returning clients as well. Wikiup has larger rooms, and rooms that are easier to get to, but StarGazer is so private and has... More

Remember the story of Goldilocks & the 3 Bears? When looking for the perfect B&B in Julian, you can skip the too hot & too cold, too big & too small, and too hard & too soft...if you head directly to Wikiup Bed & Breakfast...because they got everything JUST RIGHT!

I have been admittedly lazy about responding to all of the wonderful reviews that Wikiup BnB has received over the years. However, this review has caused me to have a change of heart.

The old slot machines had 3 bars - you line them up and you win. Same goes for B & B's. (1) Location - quiet, big trees, mountain feel. (2) Lodging - clean, very country-cabiney - over the top breakfasts! (3) Hosts - you just can't get any better than Linda and Lee. Put all 3 together and you get... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Julian, California's very romantic and secluded Wikiup Bed and Breakfast is located on four wooded hillside acres in a relaxed, rural setting. While at the B&B, enjoy the country life, only a mile from the historic mining town of Julian. However, the bustling city of San Diego is only an hour and 20 minutes away.Five wonderful guest rooms include all the amenities of a fine hotel, including large in-room spas or private out door hot tubs. Full and delicious breakfasts are your innkeeper's specialty. Awaken to scrumptious "country gourmet" feasts and enjoy a different creation every morning. Afternoon desserts are made available in the common area daily. Enjoy the breezes and shade covered decks by day, or unwind in the comfort of your hot tub or spa under the star-filled night skies. Walking paths, a restful swing, as well as fountains and a pond, encourage you to linger on the grounds and relax. The beautiful mountain atmosphere is perfect place to relax and forget about your busy life and hectic schedule. Llama feeding, swings, and the dreamy silence of the forest night make the Wikiup a favorite vacation getaway. ... more   less
