Four-Diamond Orchard Hill Country Inn overlooks the townsite of historic Julian. This hilltop inn is situated among fruit trees, and gardens, and a water garden surrounded by manzanitas and coulter pines. Enter a bygone era in which you can still sip sarsaparilla at a 1800's marble-topped soda fountain, tour an operating gold mine or enjoy a romantic horse-drawn carriage ride through Julian's pristine countryside.

We truly made a great choice celebrating our 40th Anniversay here. We stayed 3 nights in the Jonathan cottage and were treated like celebrities. Every staff person was delightful and went above and beyond to assure that EVERYTHING was to our satisfaction. The detail to the decor of our cottage, and the entire property, is especially noteworthy. Breakfast is included in your stay and it was remarkable in the wonderful food served! A 5 star 4-course dinner is served every other evening in a beautiful dinning room with tables surrounded by large windows with views of gorgeously landscaped grounds and the natural Julian beauty. I enthusiastically recommend celebrating any special ocassion here or coming here for outstanding R & R!

Our Honeymoon

On February the 23rd we had the pleasure of staying at the Orchard Hill for our honeymoon. the front desk person Jonathan was amazing! he made us feel welcomed and he has happy and explained all the amenities what a great experience on arrival! The breakfast servers were all smiles with a great attitude. Mr Adolfo the breakfast cook said hello to me and my wife with a warm and sincere smile every morning. At night we were personally greeted by the owner Pat, she showed us our table for the evening dinner, I was so impressed with all the staff that night! on behalf of my beautiful wife and me THANK YOU! Ben Martinez.

Perfect place to celebrate!

My husband and I recently stayed in the Cortland and it was just perfect. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary of 11 years and decided to splurge on ourselves (something we rarely do) - and we are so glad we did! Once we checked in, the staff all welcomed us with warm smiles and it seemed as though we were 'recognized' no matter which area of the property we were visiting. It felt as though we were truly appreciated as guests and the staff were helpful and accoodating when necessary, and very intuitive when we needed our privacy. Great balance of service! The breakfasts were delicious and fresh and our 4 course dinner was fantastic. We will definitely be visiting here again!

Amazing experience

I made this reservation with the need to get away from the city and have a nice relaxing weekend. The Orchard Hill Country Inn FAR exceeded my expectations and was EXACTLY what I needed. We arrived a bit late in the afternoon on Friday but the staff was courteous enough to extend their happy hour so we could still have our complimentary wine. After that we were taken to our room and it's just like it says on their website. We stayed in the Annie Elizabeth room and it had just the right amount of privacy, and the little deck was amazing to do some star gazing at night. The dinner the second night was absolutely perfect. Everything was cooked perfectly and was delicious. I can't say enough about the staff and how friendly, helpful and truly sincere they all were. It was not only the most romantic weekend of my life, but it was also the most enjoyable, and everyone there made that possible. I would recommend this place to ANYONE. Hopefully my plan to return this winter to see how beautiful it can be in the snow will happen!
