Pat and Darrel and their staff were extremely accommodating. They were very friendly and made our stay a trip to remember. During these times of lockdown and worry, getting away at their beautiful inn and the lovely grounds was just what we needed. Fresh air, gorgeous wildflowers, special sitting areas to read a book and just think of nothing else except how lucky we are to experience this. We are looking ahead to planning our next stay there this summer. ....and not to forget, the breakfasts and dinner were outstanding. Also, the cookies awaiting us in our room hit the spot!

We have never really stayed at an Inn or any type of Hotel that was as friendly and homey as the Orchard Hill. The owners of the Inn greet you by sitting down and fixing a beautiful fire in the massive fireplace in the lobby while discussing different topics that just make you feel so at home. The entire location is well kept and the Staff is as friendly and nice as the owners themselves. We recommend the Orchard Hill Country Inn with the highest marks available.

Always a great place to relax within the great pines and chirping birds and sitting along side the nice chairs set by the trickling stream outside the lobby entrance. The sof music always playing in the background in the loabby and eating areas, especially by the enormous wood buring fireplace. All the rooms are the same, warm comfortable and well taken care of. The Chef prepares dinners and breakfasts that can be eaten inside by the windows overlooking the mountains and wild life outside. We saw many deer on this occasion. Based on weather permitting, really nice tables are outside too. We have stayed inside the Inn and in one of the private cottages surrounding the Inn. All perfect. You will love it, the ambiance, friendly staff and the ability to just totally relax. Cheers,

I rented a cabin for my sister’s birthday celebration mid-November to enjoy cool fall weather, which was unseasonably warm during the day, but very cool at night. The staff was welcoming, offering us scones while our room was being readied as we walked thru town. We really enjoyed their wonderful happy hour with an abundance of good appetizers and multiple pours of wine, along with good restaurant recommendations (also asking if they could call ahead). The room was perfect, comfortable, warm, well appointed and quiet. Breakfast was fantastic overlooking beautiful fall trees with numerous selections and excellent service. The staff showed us other rooms within the main house and, simply, couldn’t have been nicer! Can’t say enough nice things about this place and would never consider staying anywhere else! Oh, they had a small birthday basket for my sister, including a piece of cake to celebrate her birthday, along with a note......that on top of a jar of cookies!

Orchard Hill Country Inn is a treasure in the town of Julian, California. Perched on a hill just above town, the location cannot be beat, private but walkable to town. The lodge "lobby" is lovely with a massive fireplace, lots of seating areas, and a small cozy bar. In the evening, wine and appetizers are served and the owners, Pat and Darrell are often there to greet and chat with guests and ensure that everyone is happy and enjoying their stay. Breakfast is served in a glass-lined room amongst the pine trees. If you are lucky enough to have snow, it is a magical place to be. Chef Doris is amazing, breakfast is different each morning with a wide array of choices to please all palates and diets. Two evenings a week, guests may opt to have dinner by Chef Doris with a few choices of entrees. It may be the only 'fine' dining in this country town. Rooms are cozy and accommodating though not large. Each room is decorated in a different style and maintenance and cleanliness are a priority. A small far of homemade cookies graces each room. Also on the property are the cottages, more private and slightly larger accommodations with decks that are lovely in the summer. Orchard Hill is managed in superb fashion with staff catering to every guest's needs, whether it be information about hiking trails, shopping, or dining in Julian. Also, on the property, is a lovely man-made creek in an open area with a trail leading up the mountain. Benches and tree stumps provide a peaceful ambiance.
