About Stephen Gannon, Marketing Manager

Keith and Priscilla Webb have been married since 1986. Though retired, they moved to Julian in 2010 and knew they needed to keep busy. After all, Priscilla is actively involved in fundraising efforts for the poor and needy in a variety of non-profit groups. Remembering their fondness for fruit from the Julian Farmer’s Market, Keith decided to try his hand at farming. So they bought their first apple orchard across from the Julian High School--Apple Lane Orchard. We are very proud of our apple cider manufacturing and distribution and the Wedding and Event Venue and Vacation Cottage. We hope you enjoy your stay at beautiful Apple Lane Orchards.

Stephen Gannon, Marketing Manager purchased this guest house in 2012

Great one level accommodation

  • 4 of 5

If you are looking for accommodation that has easy access and one level living this property is ideal. The location is off the beaten path but still close to Julian Main Street. We loved the large verandah from where views of the sunset are amazing.

I loved this house! It's huge, beautiful and has everything you could ever need!

  • 5 of 5

This past weekend my family and I celebrated my mom's birthday here and had the most wonderful time. There were 5 adults and 3 children on the first night and an additional adult joined the second night and there were plenty of space for all of us to sleep comfortably. We had visitors join us both days to celebrate my moms birthday and there was plenty of room to host. The house it self is beautiful and somehow remains cozy even though it's so big. My siblings and I enjoyed being able to all cook together in the massive kitchen. The kids probably had the best time. There were games and puzzles stocked up in the cabinets and a beautiful old fashioned fireplace. My favorite part of the house was the porch swing and the relaxing tub in the master bathroom candles included! This house was perfect for our family to be able to get away from city life and enjoy being together. Definitely plan to stay here again!


(+) Very clean from top to bottom

Common Spaces:

(+) Large open Spaces

(+) Wrapped porch with sitting area and swing!

(+) Patio great for grilling and entertaining

(+) Beautiful light set up on patio


(+) Room size

(+) Master bathroom tub!

(-) Bed in Masters a little lumpy


(+) Big enough for 5 people to be cooking/ preparing at once

(+) Abundance of pots, pans, dishes, cups, etc.

(+) 2 dining areas in house and 2 dining areas on patio!

Highly recommend!!

  • 5 of 5

Our weekend getaway was too short to enjoy this beautiful home. As soon as we walked in we were amazed by how beautiful this house was. Everything was just perfect from the top of the hill privacy to the beautiful views of Julian mountains all I can say is that my family and I will definitely be back. Thank you Stephen for being so attentive to make sure our stay was perfect. I appreciate your great directions of your property and the delicious cider you gifted us 😊?

Hope to be back soon!!!
