We had the best stay at the Orchard Hill Inn. The staff is friendly and very accommodating. The room was nice with many thoughtful touches such as cookies each day. The bed was ver comfortable. Breakfast was yummy with many choices including sparkling wine! The complimentary happy hour was the icing on then I cake. The lodge and rooms are... More

This wonderful country inn is located just off Main Street in the village of Julian. You would not expect this quality of hotel in a historic mining town. First the grounds are amazing, during our little walk we were followed by wild turkeys. We stayed in the lodge, the rooms are spacious and come with everything, including homemade cookies. The...

My husband and I stayed at Orchard Hill County Inn in February and May of 2015. The grounds are beautiful! Our room was small but cute and cozy. The complimentary breakfast buffet and happy hour are delicious! The dining area has an amazing view. The happy hour by the fireplace is relaxing; and a chance to chat with the other... More

Julian is a great East San Diego County getaway. The Orchard Hill Country Inn is a high class B&B Inn. Very classy with old-fashion courtesy and patron appreciation. Walking distance to downtown Julian where the best pies in the world can be found!

My husband and I spent Dec. 30- Jan 1 for the Orchard Hill Country Inn New Year's package. And before we left we booked a room for next year, too. We had one of the cottage rooms which was well-appointed, with a gas fireplace, generous selection of teas, coffee, and cookies, games, interesting books. The included buffet breakfasts featured sausages,... More

I stayed at the Orchard Inn for my anniversary and we were blown away by both the quality of service and warmth in our short stay. The staff told us that they were painfully short on employees for the day but I wouldn't have noticed for a moment if they hadn't said anything, as our needs were more than taken... More

I've been staying at the Orchard Hill Country Inn for 20 years. Sometimes just one night and sometimes 15. I wrote a PhD dissertation at the Inn over several years as I frequently stayed to just get away and really focus in the beautiful solitude. Pat and Darrell are the consummate hosts and they and their wonderful staff keep this... More

Breakfast buffet was delicious as were the complimentary appetizers and wine in the late afternoon. Would definitely recommend a stay here. Our bed... More

Our guests are incredible,- interesting and entertaining. Each trekking up our hill seeking to fulfill their own need. This particular weekend seemed to be focused on a relaxing & restful respite to regenerate themselves for the challenges ahead. The need for quiet seems to be mentioned more and more and we understand -this is one of the reasons we relocated... More

I stayed here for one night over Thanksgiving weekend at the Valmore Cottage. The staff went above and beyond to ensure we were comfortable and even surprised us with a small chocolate cake to celebrate my wife's birthday. The room was very comfortable with a little gas fireplace and couch to cozy up on during the cold fall night. I... More

Upon arriving we were immediately and warmly greeted by the owner and the front desk staff. Throughout our stay I was very impressed with how much the employees enjoy working at the Inn, and how willing the owners were to make every detail of our visit a success. They are a very cohesive team. Thanksgiving dinner and every morning's breakfast... More

After owning Orchard Hill for over twenty years, Darrel says that setting plumbing issues aside it's a pretty great retirement. We had over 80 dinner guests for this Thanksgiving and everything was perfection, including a well timed dusting of snow. Thank you for your encouragement. More
