Eaglenest Bed and Breakfast

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 25, 2012

We went to Julian on in September 2012 to meet up with a family member who lives outside town and they told us to stay at the Eagle Nest. We couldn't have been more pleased or surprised by the warmth of the owners, Jim and Julie, and the coziness of the B&B. We're from Texas, where B&B's rule the day, but this one was spectacular. We stayed in the Spring Room, which is the only room upstairs. It shares the 2nd floor with the kitchen, communal living space, dining area, and a large balcony that overlooks the pool/hot-tub/fire-pit deck and the beautiful mountains. the Spring Room was great, it had a separate private living area with nice views and a frig. We hardly needed it, however, as we spent most of our time in the communal spaces. It was a quiet, restful stay combined with some nice energy from the 3 golden retrievers that Jim and Julie have. They were perfectly mannered and so soft!! They were gorgeous animals and helped make the B&B feel like home. Jim and Julie had the same effect and were so warm and hospitable. And the breakfasts! Oh my. I may have gained 5 pounds over the weekend, but every last oz was worth it. If you are headed anywhere near Julian, or want to make it a destination, I highly recommend staying here!!

Room Tip: All rooms seem great and each have their own advantages. The entire place is quiet and peaceful, so...

We just got home after a perfect 4 days at Eaglenest B&B. We can't say enough about what a wonderful home Jim & Julie have created for their guests. We stayed in the Summer room and absolutely loved it. The furnishings in the room and throughout the entire home make you feel as if you are "right at home". Jim's breakfasts were fabulous and I will be copying the recipes found on their website. We enjoyed the town of Julian, but the highlight of this trip, by far, was our stay at Eaglenest, meeting Jim & Julie, and falling in love with their 3 Golden Retrievers - Luke, Will & Grace.
When you arrive, you might feel like strangers, but by the time you leave, you will feel like family. In our opinion, there could not be a better place to stay in Julian than Eaglenest Bed & Breakfast. We loved it and will go back.

Room Tip: There are 4 rooms and each one is unique and beautifully decorated. We stayed in the Summer room, wh...

My daughters and I spent one night at the Eagle Nest in May 2012. I chose Julian because I was curious to see this small, old mining town. The Eagle Nest had great reviews, too. However, I have to admit that the real attraction were the owners' golden retrievers! We are animal lovers but since we have cats and no dogs, I figured this stay would be a treat for my daughters, which it was. Our hosts, Jim and Julie, were so warm and welcoming. They received us with open arms, and made us feel like we were family. ( The 4-legged owners are equally wonderful and friendly.) In the morning, they cooked us a delicious breakfast for us and the rest of the guests. My girls and I stayed in the beautiful 2nd floor suite. We walked around town, then relaxed in the properties lovely pool and hot tub. Needless to say, we didn't want to leave. I'd stay there again anytime.

Room Tip: All are lovely.

We just returned from a 3 night stay at the Eaglenest. What a great place! Jim and Julie make you feel welcome right from the start. There is a beautiful deck for star gazing or enjoying the view and a nice pool and spa area with fire pit and comfortable seating. The breakfasts were wonderful and we enjoyed talking with the other guests. Their 3 goldens were also welcoming and were the highlight of the stay for our daughter. Easy to walk into town but quiet enough for relaxation. Julie made our daughter feel right at home and we would definitely go back!!

Room Tip: We peeked into all the rooms and they were all nice. We stayed in the summer room and liked it.

My boyfriend and I wanted a romantic weekend getaway to celebrate our 3 year anniversary, we ended up deciding on the quaint town of Julian,California. Not knowing anything about the town, We were absolutely blessed to come across the eagle nest b&b, we couldn't have painted a better picture for our weekend away! The grounds where beautiful, the views picturesque, rooms clean and charming. What really makes this place are the owners Jim and Julie ( and their goldens, luke, will and gracie) they make you feel right at home!This is by far the best place to stay in julien, we didn't even get out the door before we booked our next stay!

Ps the jacuzzi and pool at night time provide for the best star gazing!

We chose this place because we are dog lovers and thought the idea of having big dogs as "ambassadors" was the coolest thing. However, after arriving we found that the dogs were just a tiny part of what makes Eaglenest the BEST place in Julian. Jim and Julie are truly special people and we feel God directed us to their home for our anniversary week getaway. Julie's hospitatlity is unmatched by any 5star hotel anywhere and Jim is truly gifted with a talent for preparing and serving the most amazing breakfasts ever. We we're treated like family from the minute we arrived. This was our first visit to a bed and breakfast and Jim, Julie, Luke, Will and Grace have definitely spoiled us against ever wanting to go to a regular hotel again. We have decided to make this a yearly trip and can't wait to go back!!

My partner and I spent Memorial Weekend at Eaglenest B&B in Julian and it was a wonderful weekend! Jim and Julie truly thought of everything and work so hard to make our experience peaceful and relaxing. The rooms were spacious and comfortable with plush towels, soft rugs and cozy fire place. The room has coffee maker, wine glasses, DVD player, stereo, mini frig and even night light in the bathroom.There's a pantry full of drinks, popcorn, ice cream, hot chocolate with whip cream and movies. We were greeted with fresh baked pie, cookies and brownies. Breakfast was so awesome that our new line is "I wonder what Jim & Julie are making for breakfast today?" They helped us make reservations for the sky tour, wine tour and made recomendations for the Julian Tea House which was all fabulous! The B&B is close enough to walk around town but off the path so as to feel like your in the trees. I loved the dogs who greeted us in the morning at breakfast and were very friendly. We can't wait to come back again and maybe bring the kids and check out their cabin.
