Pat, Darrell, her daughter, son in law Collins and staff really know how to treat their guests! We tried a cottage a few years back but prefer the lodge room we requested this time. The wine and cheese is a perfect occasion to chat with owners and other guests or to read a book by the fireplace. The meals never... More

We are a little concerned when there is only one couple staying in the lodge, it's very large, so I appreciate your input. Liz is the best, she is like a warm milk at bedtime. If you asked, she would cheerfully prepare a glass for you. We are enjoying trying out our new, special blended wine created for hors'doeuvres. It... More

Close but worlds away. Less than an hour from Fallbrook, this is our favorite get away. The Sweet Bough cottage room, always! Large tub, fireplace, so romantic. Everybody here are wonderful, they make your stay special.

Dave, Everyone needs a special getaway and we are happy to be yours. Owning Orchard Hill is like being Captain of the Ship - just about the time that I think we are "ship shape," it is time to begin all over again. I'm very happy with the new "waterless" garden we are developing in front of the Sweet Bough.... More

We have been going to Orchard Hill for approximately 15 years, and we have never been disappointed. The staff, the accommodations, the cuisine, the grounds, ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING about Orchard Hill is wonderful!

We've stayed in this lovely, well maintained Inn several times over the years. It has never disappointed. Pat and her staff are friendly, knowledgable and very accommodating.

Well, we do try...really try. But then, it is a pleasure and a challenge for when an experienced traveler judges us as so.

Orchard Hill Country Inn is the perfect spot to stay in Julian. It is within walking distance to town, yet it feels like you are in a mountain retreat. The staff and owners are friendly and accommodating. No detail has been left out of their inn design nor the comfy rooms. Stay here.

We think that we do have the finest location in all of Julian. Close into town, but private, secluded and yes, comfy. Our public rooms extend our space to promote lively conversation which usually reveals our daughter, Darrian in the middle surrounded by gales of laughter. Darrian has her Dad's sense of humor. Collins, Darrian's husband is the consummate gracious... More

If you are looking for a romantic getaway, this cozy place hits the mark. The community room has a large fireplace where you can just sit and relax. The dining is superb and it's cleverly located near the center of town.

Our dinners on Saturday and Sunday night are especially satisfying. Doris, our Chef along with her dear Norwegian husband, Odd never cease to amaze us and please our guests.

Our room, the Jonathan, was lovely with a separate sitting area, a fireplace that opened into the sitting room and the bedroom. Clean, well-kept and tastefully decorated. The view from our porch area was lovely. Breakfast at the lodge was excellent. A variety of breads and juice, coffee and a hot entrée.

We all like the Jonathan, bright, cheerful and well appointed. There is a framed and titled picture in the Jonathan that Darrell and I found in an antique shop about 20 years ago. It had on the backside a short narrative written by the purchaser who traded a pack of cigarettes for this very nice print. I think of this... More
