Out of all the places in the world we have stayed this has to be one of our favourites for its shear peace and tranquility and the care and attention put in to it by Chuck and Nan. We spent two wonderful nights in March in Strawberry Hill Cabin. We were greeted on arrival by Nan who showed us where... More

My wife spent two blissful nights at the Artists Loft in Pine Hills, CA this past week. Chuck and Nan have created the Platonic Ideal of the mountain cabin, and our only regret is that we had to leave. This is truly a magical experience. Why?

We were looking for a place to unwind, unplug and reconnect with nature and ourselves. We couldn't have been more elated with the natural beauty, charm and authenticity of "Big Cat Cabin" in Julian. A feeling of amazement and serenity took over when I first drove into the beautiful & natural drive. When I entered into "Big Cat" I began... More

OK, we are neighbors of the owners of the Artist's Loft B & B. So you may think we are biased in favor if this business. And we are, because we know that Chuck and Nan care about what their guests. You can expect a clean place to stay with wonderful views. Expect a few visits from the local deer.... More

Just came back from a one night stay at the Strawberry Hill Cabin, and it was not nearly long enough. It is so charming, from the wood burning stove to the incredible views of the mountains and the Pacific. Chuck and Nan are such lovely and warm people, and did a really great job of helping us to take advantage... More

My wife and I just spent two mid-week days at the Artists' Loft in Julian, CA. The cabin is absolutely lovely, inside and out. The view is magnificent. We were visited by several local deer early in the morning on the second day of our visit. The owners-managers were friendly and helpful. I hope to return during the fall, winter,... More

I guess the title says it all. But that said, This little piece of heaven should be shared and experienced by all. We now call my 12 year old daughter the turkey whisperer. She'd hear a turkey and tear off into the woods to gobble at it. They always gobbled back. We were there 10" and I knew I wanted... More

The perfect mountain retreat - completely quiet, completely self-contained, stunning views and every homey comfort provided. We would gladly buy it and live there full time if we could...so glad we can at least "borrow it" now and then. I love everything about this place..sunny porch for reading, meticulous kitchen with quirky dishes, beautiful aged wood floors, wonderful textiles everywhere,... More

My husband I just returned from the most relaxing weekend at Big Cat Cabin. Chuck met us upon our arrival and provided a very cordial, informative overview of the cabin and the surrounding area. It was great to hear about the history of the cabin and all of the special touches Chuck and his wife have added over the years!... More
