“Lovely place!”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

My husband and I stayed her for our anniversary and we thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm an author and we were doing a book-related event in Julian and it was just a hop skip and a jump away from where we needed to be. We stayed in the Feather Nest and it was cozy and just right. The meals were delicious and it really showed that the owners took care in the little details for their guests. We would definitely go back there again!

My wife and I just had a classic Julian experience: apple picking, walking the town, visiting the family-owned stores, dinner at the Grille, all capstoned by a stay at Butterfield. What a lovely property! It was enjoyable to spend the evening in the parlor, fiddling on the piano, looking through their books and movie collection, and playing some board games over a cup of tea. Our room was comfortable, the hosts very gracious, and the following morning's breakfast just as delicious as it was visually appealing. We recommend Butterfield, and plan to stay again. (Next time, with our new baby in their Rose Bud Cottage - there, they can offer a pack-n-play!)

Room Tip: Country Corner has a nice, convenient location, with a spacious bathroom

This was a great bed and breakfast! A first for us to Julian. Our room, the smallest one of all, "the Feathers Nest" was clean, cozy and comfortable. The breakfast was outstanding and the owners delightful and gracious. We will go back!

Room Tip: If you don't mind sleeping in a double bed, this one is the one for you. The featherbed was so...

We stayed here Memorial Day weekend and the Rose Cottage couldn't have been more wonderful! A home away from home. A separate little building with parking outside our door and steps away from the dining room with the most spectacular breakfasts ever! Dawn & Ed are just amazing. Everything is immaculately clean and every detail was realized and manifested. The Rose Cottage has a private patio and unfortunately it was either too chilly in the morning or too windy in the afternoon when we returned from sight-seeing to take advantage of it. Don't miss the goodies Dawn & Ed put out in the afternoon. One of the best brownies I've ever had! Be sure to take the rose garden walk. It's spectacular and very inviting to sit and meditate with benches scattered around. Some interesting day trips: there are 2 "Sub" Missions within easy driving range - Mission Santa Ysabel on Hwy 79 and Mission San Antonio de Pala on Hwy 76. Oh....and Ed was right -- the best apple pie in town is at Mom's!

Room Tip: LOVED Rose Garden Cottage. So roomy & private.

I stayed for 3 nights in the Stanza Italia. I was looking for a quiet and private room for a personal retreat and this fit the bill very well. The room was clean and well appointed with coffee maker, enough hangers, A/C and a comfortable bed. There's a cafe table outside the door as well as other reading/sitting nooks around the garden. The guest pantry is stocked with popcorn, fruit, hot/iced tea and hot coffee. Dawn always had a tray of goodies including her housemade brownies ~ deelish! Both Ed and Dawn are friendly yet professional and they made me feel welcome without being intrusive.

We celebrated my 60th birthday in the most hospitable and peaceful place we could have chosen for a weekend getaway. The breakfasts were gourmet...always homemade cookies or brownies waiting when we returned from a hike or a walk around town or a picnic by lake Cuyamaca...a library of videos that went on and on...and every amenity waiting for us in our bedroom. We strolled through the lovely rose garden and listened to the birds...what a great place to spend a restful weekend

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
