It has been 14 years since we had stayed at Orchard Hill and it is nice to know that it is still a great destination for a few days. Pat, Syd and staff are over-the-top nice and very pleasant to deal with. We ended up saying in the same room as we have done twice before. The cottages are charming... More

MacIntosh suite is a beautiful room, with chairs and tables outside. We went in the middle of the week and there was little going on, but it was very quiet and peaceful. They have breakfast, very good and happy hour with beer and wine. They are just starting dinners on the weekends. Everyone is just wonderful, a beautiful place to... More

A wonderful place. The people are great and the setting beautiful. you can walk to the village of Julian to visit the shops and restaurants. However, I would recommend going during the week since the weekends in Julian a pretty crowded. Once in the resort, though, you never notice the crowds in town.

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.

Thank you both for staying with us. That certainly was a beautiful weekend with the meteor shower and the clear nights we had. What a great time to be in Julian. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay in the Annie Elizabeth cottage. The porch must have been perfect for stargazing. The fall is a beautiful time up here... 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
