My husband and me had booked this place for the Independence Day weekend. The owners Ed and Dawn are wonderful people and were very helpful throughout our stay. The house has everything one could need in a cabin, everything you could think of! Well stocked with all the utensils, spices, bbq tools, linen etc. Good collection of CDs/DVDs and a lovely piano for whiling away your time. They made sure our stay was comfortable,including our friends who joined us a day later. An awesome getaway in Julian!

We just returned from a wonderful weekend in Julian; made all the better by staying in the Black Oak Cabin. It was immaculate and .stocked with everything that one might need. Dawn and Ed were most hospitable and helpful, it is really like staying in someones delightful home with really great neighbors.

My husband and I stay at private cabins quite a bit when we travel, because we like the privacy and ability to prepare your own meals. BOC has pretty much the best array of cooking gadgets, utensils, and necessities we've seen to date anywhere we've stayed. We have come not to even expect a wine bottle or can opener, but we couldn't think of a single item we were missing. It was wonderful to be able to cook whatever we wanted. The cabin is also really cozy. We enjoyed using the pot belly stove to have a fire every night (we were there in early January). We definitely would like to return. The ad says it's in walking distance to downtown, but this is not so in the winter when the days are shorter, since there are no lights on the roads.

I booked the Black Oak Cabin at the last minute for an impromptu getaway with my husband. It's a little pricier than I would have liked but it was truly a wonderful little place to stay. Ed and Dawn were wonderful, thoughtful and helpful but not obtrusive, and the cabin was just wonderfully cozy and comfortable. Very, very clean and appointed with everything you need to be comfy. The bed was wonderful. (Just a hint: If you're planning on making any of your own meals, bring your food with you as the nearest decent grocery store is 22 miles away, although there are a couple of markets in Julian that have the essentials.) The decor is homey and comfy (altho the couches in the living room have sloping issues -- one tends to slope toward the front and the other toward the back, but they weren't uncomfortable by any means), and the wood stove is a really nice touch. Even though it wasn't cold when we visited, we lit a fire anyway for the ambience (and then opened the slider!). The back neck is wonderful, complete with a very nice barbecue; the outside swings are nice, and the hammock is a great touch. Beautiful, woodsy, contained-but-wild landscaping with herbs and irises galore. Perfect place if you (a) want privacy and (b) don't mind making your own bed. No housekeeping services but that just made it feel more like "our" place for the weekend. Definitely would go there again.
