We spent two nights at the Orchard Hill Country Inn in Julian. We had purchased a Groupon voucher and selected a cottage for our stay. We stayed in the Gladstone cottage and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The furnishings are top notch,a comfy bed, very nice linens, and great fireplace with a timer.There is also a small sitting area/porch with two chairs outside the bedroom. The bathroom included a large spa/whirlpool tub. It was a bit difficult for me to step over and into the tub. As it was the only option for bathing/showering, I made it work for me.
From the Gladstone it is an easy walk up a hill to the lodge for breakfast and the complimentary wine and appetizer treats each late afternoon. The breakfast was very good each morning, a filling egg casserole one morning and oatmeal pancakes with bacon the next morning. There was also a nice selection of granolas, breads and yogurt.
I would love to return for another visit. Truthfully, though, I would have a difficult time justifying the full cost, without a Groupon voucher. We did not dine at the Inn where dinner is served several nights a week. Dinner was not included in our purchase, as it is with a full paying two night stay. The dinner selections and the cost ( $38 pp) did not appeal to me.
All the staff was helpful, courteous, making each interaction a positive one. They have hospitality down to a science.
