Butterfield Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #5 of 11 Julian B&B and Inns
Reviewed 15 May 2013

Went here for the weekend of our 38th anniversary. We stayed in the Stanza Italia room and it was wonderful. The breakfasts' were amazing and the morning conversations with the other guests were quite stimulating to get the day started. Our hosts were friendly and gave us as much or as little space as we wanted
Thank you Dawn & Ed

What a delight! Beautiful, quiet setting. Spent the morning in Anzo-Borrega desert state park, so going from 101 degree heat to the cool mountain air was a real treat. Stayed in the Rose Cottage. Dawn and Ed think of everything. Comfortable and clean. AMAZING breakfasts. Easy couple minute drive into Julian.

Room Tip: Didn't see any of the other rooms but the Rose Cottage was very nice.

We drove into Julian and decided to stay for the night. The owners of the Butterfield B&B welcomed us and made our impromptu weekend getaway wonderful. Our meal was perfect as was our room. We enjoyed being conveniently located to great restaurants and night life. We will definitely return to the Butterfield next time we go to Julian.

We've been going to Ed and Dawn's bed and breakfast for years now and we were slow to book in November and went somewhere else. Having just stayed at the Butterfield again, we are reminded of why we go there and only there. Ed and Dawn are courteous and friendly - available but also respectful of privacy. The facilities are clean. The food incredible in the morning (the snacks available in the evening). They exceeded expectations again by finding sugar free cider and hot chocolate as amenities in our room (remembering my wife's dietary restrictions). The grounds are in a quiet area and we had no trouble sleeping and even taking a nap during the day without interruption. Came home recharged and rested after two nights. We'll be back again and again.

Arranged a stay for our anniversary. Loved the cottage on the hilltop with the pot bellied stove. The staff accommodated our special diet needs as well as giving special suggestions.The horse drawn carriage ride into town for dinner was wonderful and the grounds with the flowers everywhere were beautiful!!!!! Wonderful place and owners!!

After searching the internet for a B&B for a quick getaway with my husband, we chose the Butterfield. We are so glad we did. It exceeded our expectations. It is a darling place tucked away a short distance from town. We felt instantly welcomed, as Ed greeted us as he was shoveling snow outside upon our arrival. It was super cold outside and loved the warm cozy main home area instantly. We felt like we were at home. They have an enormous variety of books and literature, movies on dvd and vhs, games, music, and so much more to occupy your interests. We had originally planned to go out to dinner in town, but opted to get take out and enjoy a relaxing evening by the fire. Our room had a wonderful featherbed and was so cozy and warm. As if our visit wasn't perfect enough, Dawn's breakfast was spectacular. Both the food and presentation was wonderful. We were treated as special special guests. Lovely people!

My husband and I went to the Butterfield Bed & Breakfast for our two year anniversary. We stayed in the Rosebud Cottage which was absolutely beautiful! It was decorated for Christmas which made it even more cozy. The innkeepers, Ed and Dawn were so hospitable and made delicious breakfasts each morning and were so accommodating to special food preferences. We definitely want to come back here again!
