I had an amazing time exploring Julian from the comfort of Apple Tree Inn. The rooms are cozy and the staff were excellent. Wynola Pizza had some great food & libations. Can’t wait to be back.

Pool is very nice and clean. Lots of patio furniture. Very nice gazebo by the pool. Refrigerator available by request. Good shower. Lots of towels and cloths. Charming architecture. Great shade trees of oak and cedar. Prompt, courteous staff. Location is hard to beat. Adequate furniture and lighting. Pet friendly. Mornings are quiet. Curtains keep the room dark.
