Butterfield Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #5 of 11 Julian B&B and Inns
Reviewed March 25, 2010

We stayed here recently in order to visit Anza Borrego. Julian is located in the mountains about 40 minutes away from the headquarters of Anza Borrego. I would highly recommend staying at this B&B. The hosts are super friendly and the breakfasts were great! We stayed in the small room in the downstairs of the main house and I would like to stay in another room if we ever go back. It was a little noisy in that room from the guests upstairs.

Very good and clean accommodations. The rooms were appointed nicely and not overdone. The breakfasts were very artistic, delicious, and of a reasonable size. Cookies in the cookie jar were always a treat. The Apple Sweet room with the real wood fireplace was a delight to have during the cool March nights.

First time at a b&b, and after some searching around for the right one, we stayed here in the Apple Sweet room in early November. It was a great time to go to Julian, and everything about the stay was impeccable! It seems they thought of everything! I was really impressed by the amount of detail and thought that went into everything. My first impression of of the living and dining areas were great, everything was dressed up for Thanksgiving and it felt so festive and warm! We LOVED having a fireplace in the room! It was all around a great weekend and an excellent choice!

A most wonderful place to get away from the city! Gorgeous setting, beautiful grounds, and most gracious hosts. Had a wonderful stay in the Country Corner, complete with rubber duckies in the bathtub. The breakfasts were absolutely scrumptuous as were the desserts in the afternoon. Wishing I could have stayed longer, but I left with a happy and relaxed heart and mind. Looking forward to my next trip!!!!

Butterfield Bed & Breakfast is the perfect stay for a cozy, relaxing trip. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The owners were extremely hospitable and welcoming. The food delicious, and the atmosphere so calm, so relaxing, it made me want to come back and spend Christmas there. They also were very sure to make our room as appropriate for our stay as possible. We have a small child and then brought in a diaper pail, crib, put outlet covers on all the outlets, etc. Definitely recommend this place, for anyone.

Thanks, Dawn and Ed, for a great mid-week getaway. The accommodations were lovely, we especially enjoyed the comfort of the living room to lounge and peruse your fantastic book collection, as well as the wide assortment of movies to choose from. The Back Porch was a real treat, especially when we got a craving for something to drink and snack on before bedtime. Your gourmet breakfast was so awesome we weren't hungry until dinner time! The rustic homey setting of Julian and the rural mountain surroundings offered fun side trips and some antique shopping. We had a great time, and plan a return visit!

We are very happy with our stay at the Butterfield.
The place is cozy, the room is perfect, the gourmet breakfast is plenty and delicious.
And another thing we love is the room's proximity to the back porch pantry :) (We stayed at the Stanza Italia)

We got plenty of rest here - just what we needed. We love the area where it's at. You will feel like a locale more than a tourist. As a 30-something workaholic couple - we looked for a place to de-stress and we are happy to find it at Butterfield.

Overall - there's not much to do in the evening in Julian. So bring a book, or board games or dvds to occupy the night. If you didn't bring these items, Butterfield has a good collection of movies, board games and they also have some books.

We definitely would like to visit again soon.
