As a couple, we loved our 3 night stay at the historic Big Cat Cabin. It was quiet, private, and comfortable. There are lots of separate and lovely areas within and without the cabin to linger in and relax - the writer's corner, the window seat and sofa next to the stone fireplace, the sunny dining area, the porch, and...

My wife, 12-year-old child and I spent a wonderful weekend at the Artists’ Loft Cabin in Julian. The cabin is spacious yet cozy. Full of all those small details that make such a big difference down to the two pairs of binoculars to help you enjoy bird-watching. Wooden floor, cozy furniture, wood-oven and astounding views. The couple that owns the...

Wonderful and creatively appointed with reclaimed woods and multicultural arts, the new Artist's Loft cabin has breath-taking views from its huge covered porch. We felt like we had been rewarded with comfort and serenity, creativity and enjoyed hours together there. My favoriteplace to stay.

Big Cat exceeded all of our expectations, from Chuck and Nan's wonderful hospitality, to the amazing views and rustic, yet very comfortable amenities. We were completely in awe of the woodwork and personality this cabin has. It has been a truly magical experience and we plan to return very soon.

Big Cat Cabin is our favorite mountain get-a-way. We have been staying here 15+ years & it has never lost it's charm. Big Cat is in a beautiful, peaceful forest setting. The cabin itself is very large, open concept, vaulted ceilings, wood beams, floor to ceiling wood burning fire place, spotlessly clean & has so many large windows in every...

If you need to get away from everyday stress and become a happy positive person again then this is the place to go. The "New" Artist Loft is an incredible experience from the moment you walk in to the time you leave. Nestled in Pine Hills and surrounded by a mix of pine trees, oaks, and other chaparral vegetation the...

Out of all the places in the world we have stayed this has to be one of our favourites for its shear peace and tranquility and the care and attention put in to it by Chuck and Nan. We spent two wonderful nights in March in Strawberry Hill Cabin. We were greeted on arrival by Nan who showed us where...

My wife spent two blissful nights at the Artists Loft in Pine Hills, CA this past week. Chuck and Nan have created the Platonic Ideal of the mountain cabin, and our only regret is that we had to leave. This is truly a magical experience. Why?

We were looking for a place to unwind, unplug and reconnect with nature and ourselves. We couldn't have been more elated with the natural beauty, charm and authenticity of "Big Cat Cabin" in Julian.

OK, we are neighbors of the owners of the Artist's Loft B & B. So you may think we are biased in favor if this business. And we are, because we know that Chuck and Nan care about what their guests. You can expect a clean place to stay with wonderful views. Expect a few visits from the local deer....

“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.”
