My husband and I had business in San Diego on a Saturday. We decided to return home by way of Julian as a lark and a way to see stars which we rarely see in Los Angeles. I looked at Trip Advisor and saw Orchard Hill Country Inn and read the reviews. What a magical treat! We were charmed by... More

I don't write reviews often, and usually when I do it is because I am unhappy. The complete opposite is true regarding Orchard Hill. I was hiking the 2660 mile Pacific Crest Trail from Mexico to Canada when I stopped in Julian, CA due to injuries sustained on the trail. I was following my dreams but had a rough time... More

This is an elegant, friendly and welcoming place. It's tastefully appointed and extremely clean and well kept. The setting is idyllic in the quaint mountain town of Julian and there are many, many hiking opportunities or just relaxing on the grounds of Orchard Hill or walking/driving thru the area. Less than an hour you could be in Anza Borrego State... More

This was our fifth visit to Orchard Hill Country Inn, and we returned to celebrate our 56th wedding anniversary. We stayed in the Lodge in our favorite room.

Stayed 3 nights in this beautiful B & B early June in small mountain town east of San Diego. Wonderful experience. Cottages were super-clean, private & beautiful. The breakfasts at the lodge were a real value-add. We stayed in early June so can only imagine Winter months would be a spectacular time of year to stay here!

This place is really great. I rarely give 5 stars, but this place deserves it. Here's the rundown: Pros: Gorgeous, hill-top setting, right above Julian, a 2 minute walk down to the main street. Adorable rooms. Impeccable. Breakfast buffet spread is amazing, and their breakfast room has huge windows & great view. The lobby has comfy couches around the huge... More

Orchard Hill is one of our favorite "go-to" spots when we need a break. The property is set up on a hill in Julian, CA which itself is high above the chaos of Southern California. Once you have been there the gracious owners seem to consider you part of their "drop in" family, and you are welcomed back with open... More
