Wikiup Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #3 of 11 Julian B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 November 2013

Our first time @ a B&B. Perfect choice. Not too far from home (Downey), scenic drive, beautiful surroundings, gracious hosts. It was the perfect get away. The room was quaint and cozy. Sitting on the deck in the early morning with a book and a cup of coffee was the best. WiFi so we could plug in when we opted to. Have already recommended to friends and family.

Cesar and I came out for our anniversary. It was great! The place is not far from the town. But far enough away for peace and quiet. Very nice at night with all the lights. Loved our Old school Jacuzzi tub. Don't worry about heating it, they have a fire fairy who comes and heats it for you. Food was FANTASTIC. Linda and Lee are very nice and do a FAB job on making this place what it is. We felt like we were visiting family. We will definitely be back.

Of the several B&B's I've stayed at in Julian, this is the best. Much of the credit goes to Linda's and Lee's ability to be hospitable but at the same time real. No saccharine or pretend charm. Just friendly and honest people, which is quite refreshing. The property is beautiful with a gorgeous dining and common area. The grounds are very pretty and secluded with fountains and walkways that are lit up like a fairyland at night. Most of the rooms have private entrances and from what the other guests were saying they were as happy with their rooms as I was with mine. Nicely appointed with all the amenities; microwave, fridge, coffee maker, big fluffy towels, etc. The breakfasts were excellent. Really. Good fresh ingredients and delicious recipes. Fresh fruit, juices, pastries and proteins all beautifully presented. In the evening there are rich desserts to have with coffee or tea. I will be back!

Matt and I came out to Julian for our 6th anniversary and Wikiup helped us celebrate. Linda and Lee are the warm and friendly owners that made this possible. They cooked amazing breakfasts (the fritata-ta and the caramel french toast were my favs) and we stayed in the Klondike Kate's shady lady. Im probably biased, as I didnt see any of the other rooms, but I think it was one of the better rooms. It was decorated beautifully with a lot of love and it was on the same floor as the main common room - so no stairs to take your suticases down. It has a private deck, with a private hot tub (wood burning, so it gets finicky sometimes but let them know and they'll do their best to get it to where you want). They have a sweet large black Newfy girl named Drifter (drifty) and cute fatty cat named Kimo and two llamas - one named Wellington and Im not sure what the other one's name was, but they are really fun to go feed w/the pellets kindly provided in the common room.
Overall, best experience I could have hoped for - beautiful scenery, nice ppl, good food, unplugged from the world (lol, no choice when you're so far from a big city). Really lovely and relaxing vacation - can't wait 'till we can go again.

I surprised my GF with a romance and roses package for her birthday and it was an amazing getaway. This was our first time staying in B&B and I wasn't completely sure what to expect even after reading all the positive reviews. Well, the reviews were spot on, this place is awesome. From the initial welcome by Drifty the Newfie, we couldn't have had a better time. The Pueblo Dreamcatcher room was so comfortable and clean and we loved the southwest décor. Linda was a wonderful hostess who made us feel very welcome in her home. She had a beautiful basket of goodies waiting in the room and arranged for an excellent dinner at Jeremy's as part of the package. We enjoyed lounging about in the warm and inviting common area (and playing with Kemo the cat) and walking the grounds watching the hummingbirds and taking pictures of the Llamas. Breakfast was superb, delicious French toast with fresh cream and berries and a most unique and tasty egg dish. We were the only guests that morning and it felt like family as we ate and talked with Linda. Only wish we had stayed a second night, I wanted more French toast!!

Julian is a great place to unwind from the usual chaos of the work week for those of us 'down the hill' and this was a fabulous place to spend a special couple of days while recharging our emotional batteries. We can't wait for another visit.

Our room was very tastefully decorated and very comfortable. The common area (dining/living room) was large, beautifully maintained. My wife and I were the only guests for the three days that we stayed.Our timing was perfect as we had the entire place to ourselves as we celebrated our one year anniversary.
Linda and Lee were outstanding hosts. Linda prepared one mouth watering dish after another for breakfast. I took photos and sent them to our friends who were all very impressed.
I had no idea what to expect going there, as Julian is a very small town in the middle of..nowhere. As it turned out, it was the perfect get away with very friendly shopkeepers and our accomidations were perfect.
