“Fabulous, Friendly, Clean and soooo cozy”
Reviewed 22 September 2009

My daughter and I stayed here Sept 18, 19 and left on the 20th .. This cabin is so cozy, warm and homey. The folks Dawn and her husband were so friendly and helpful just like visiting family. The cabin is fully furnished and soooo clean . they have everything but your food and clothes there. It's just like visiting with family. They even have a guitar there that my daughter (she is special needs) played morning , noon and evening and I was a little worried but dawn said to let her go ahead and play with it.. it is air-conditioned and has wood burning stove and regular heat so was cool, and pleasant at night .. I also want to thank them for the wild turkeys acrossed the street on Sunday am :O)

thank you both again for a wonderful weekend Pauline & Breann

If you value your getaway time and appreciate sincere, genuine hospitality, the Black Oak Cabin is an experience you will treasure. Owners Ed and Dawn have bent over backwards to ensure that nothing has been overlooked to ensure your stay is spent in down-home comfort and serenity.

This charming cabin possesses all that you'll ever need, from the spacious front porch complete with swing, an ample dining-living room, completely equipped bathroom and comfortable bedroom. The view of the trees,visits by birdlife unique to the mountains at 4000 ft., and frog concerts at night made the return to the city a dreary prospect. Every room is equipped with everything one would ever need for a relaxing trip.

If tranquility, peace, and natural beauty are valuable to you, the Black Oak Cabin is just the ticket. It is one of Julian's best kept secrets. Owners Ed and Dawn have poured their hearts, souls, and lots of blood and sweat in the small touches that will make the Black Oak Cabin a lifelong memory for all those who make their stay here.

We stayed at Black Oak Cabin for a girls getaway. The facilities were well-equipped, with everything anyone could ever need in the kitchen. The wood burning stove was wonderful. The selection of movies, DVDs and games was great. The cabin owners were kind and welcoming.

Every November, my sister-in-law and I meet in Julian for a weekend getaway. This year we discovered the charming Black Oak Cabin, operated by friendly owners Dawn and Ed. It's a warm and inviting one bedroom cabin, beautifully decorated with original art and quality furnishings. There is a fascinating variety of books to read, a fantastic wood-burning stove, comfy sofabed, and a kitchen with full size oven and refrigerator.

The areas surrounding the cabin are just as charming and include a porch swing in front, a bbq grill in back, and at least three seating areas for relaxing and enjoying the outdoors. The owners have clearly thought of everything to make their guests feel comfortable, safe and special. There's extra blankets and towels, a good supply of wood and starters, flashlights, assortment of flavored teas, and popcorn!

We normally spend a lot of time shopping in the little downtown area of Julian but this year we were torn because the cabin was such a delight we didn't want to leave it! Visit the website @ http://www.blackoakcabin.com. You know how you can be disappointed when you arrive at a place after you counted on website photos? Well this cabin looks good on the website and is even BETTER in person. Book at least two nights!!
