    Called on Saturday May 6th to see if they could put my wife, my 2 sons and I up that night because the weatherman told us it was going to snow and we wanted the kids to see it. Who ever heard of snow in May? Joanne, was extremely nice and told us she could give us a lake-view room. So I called and asked my brother and his family to come up too and Joanne found a room for them as well - last minute. We quickly packed and headed for the hills. The google maps have the wrong directions and tried to route us to turn onto Yaqui drive - BUT Joanne made sure to tell us to turn onto Engineer Road which we did. The second driveway on the right off engineer road is where you turn. It's tricky and goes from paved to dirt then back to what looks like a long house - BUT that long house is the lodge. On the outside it doesn't look nice and you will wonder if you are in the right place...don't worry, you are. When we got there Joanne was there to greet us. The room was small but just perfect with nice decor and super comfortable beds. It was super clean too. There was a space heater in our room which worked to perfection to keep us nice and toasty on a very cold night. It snowed a lot and the kids had a great time. In the common area there is a microwave, cups and glasses, coffee, tea, a refrigerator and basic needs stuff. There is also a large wood-burning stove that cranks out the heat and keeps it all toasty. Just outside the common area there is a huge deck with Hummingbird feeders and a zillion hungry friendly - almost tame & gorgeous hummingbirds - buzzing and zipping playfully by - within inches of you. That provided hours of entertainment. The lodge overall was just perfect for our needs and everything was very nice from the staff to the accommodations to the price. I would highly recommend staying there, and we will definitely be going back.

    Wonderful place to stay. A mirage in the desert. As if you are in New England. And JoAnn is a wonderful hostess and a pleasure to be around. I look forward to my next visit.

    Absolutely beautiful. The view of the lake is stunning and the night sky is amazing. I am so glad we decided to stay here, it is much nicer and more peaceful than any place in Julian. We loved it so much we didn't want to leave and we are planning a return trip in the fall. This is the perfect spot for a romantic weekend or a family trip. Joann and her husband run the lodge and they are the sweetest couple. They gave us a tour of the property and gave us lots of information on the area. Don't miss out, this place is a real gem!!!

    My stay was not as pleasant as the other reviews. I did NOT feel welcome. The room was nice and clean. The hospitality however was awful. I did not get a tour like the others. I felt like Joan was a warden just watching our every move. Our friends were passing through and needed to use the restroom. She came to our room and had a fit yelling that our friends could not be there and needed to leave. After they left she came back with her husband and said she had to inspect the room to make sure just my family was there. I was insulted and frankly wanted to leave. I stayed for the sake of my kids because they wanted to see the snow the next day. In addition, we could not even eat in the rooms! Not even a snack. The scenery is beautiful and the location is nice. Just watch out for the warden. LMAO
