I desperately needed a vacation. I got to the point of trying to open my front door with the car alarm and change the channel with my cell phone. I chose The Artist's Loft based primarily on their website. It's not fancy, but they had nice quotes towards the bottom of the home page. When in doubt, I usually choose... More

We stayed in the Cabin at Stawberry Hill for two nights while in the Julian area for the Oriflamme 50k trail race. It was lovely. The cabin is very private, peaceful, comfortable and spacious. It is beautifully built from natural materials, has a high ceiling, open floor plan and wonderful, whimsical furnishings. From the front porch, we enjoyed expansive views... More

Amazing cabin that is warm, inviting, clean and relaxing. Beautiful views, gorgeous home to spend some time in. Would come back in a heartbeat. The owners are wonderful, peaceful people who take great care of this cabin. We are lucky they share it with us! Stayed in Big Cat and LOVED it. Especially the fireplace.

First of all I have over 100 yelp reviews and would like to note that this will be my favorite review out of all the 100 reviews on yelp. My boy friend and I just got back yesterday from Julian and we stayed at the Strawberry Hill Cabin. I can honestly say I am not sure how to write this... More

As regular users of Trip Advisor Jessica and I are influenced by the reviews that are posted on this site. I am writing this review with that in mind, along with the concept that I like a concise narrative. So here it goes.

I don't know how many times we've stayed at Big Cat, but when it's time to get out of town for some R&R, there is no other place we even consider. Took a hike to Cedar Creek waterfall which we would recommend (be sure to hike from the Ramona side as the hike in from the Julian side (within a... More

Almost a year ago we had the privilege of staying at the charming Artists' Loft. Right now I'm in a cabin at Big Bear and was telling my friends all about the fond memories we had during our stay. It reminded me that I needed to right a review! Anyone who wants absolute perfection should come to the Artists' Loft.... More

My wife and I made our 2nd or 3rd visit to Big Cat Cabin this year, after an absence of nearly 8 years. With two young children keeping us busy, we have had very little time for ourselves, and a weekend away was just what we needed. Before kids, we were often fans of Bed & Breakfasts for their personal... More

My fiance and I had been running into some rough patches, and decided we needed to get away and disconnect from all of the everyday stressors around us.

My husband and I had to attend a wedding in Julian. I read some reviews posted and decided to book the New Artists' Loft to share with another couple. The pictures on the website do not do the property justice. I found Chuck and Nan delightfully helpful and personable. The cabin had an ambiance that exceeded our high expectations. We... More

“If you have friends/children that you'd like to bring along, it's worth it to rent the 2nd bedroom and be able to enjoy the entire property - makes it a little more affordable to share the cost between two couples. Both bedrooms are outstanding.”
