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

Wonderful Cosy home with the most amazing views!!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at the Old Julluan Farm House!! This house was just amazing!! We loved the outdoor spaces so much! Our little family of four enjoyed this spacious home, which has room for way more than four. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking and baking. We enjoyed breakfast on the balcony every morning with the most amazing views of the mountains in every direction!! The house was cozy, quiet and comfortable. Our daughters loved exploring the yards and hills around the house! We are already hoping to return to the farm again soon! We are already thinking of returning to the farm soon!! Thank you so much for such a lovely place to stay!!

An encore performance for the Apple Lane Orchard!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to the farm house. First trip was this time last year. Aside from weather which we couldn't control, and kept us somewhat house bound as compared to hiking, we found relaxing ways to keep ourselves occupied as well as rejuvenated. The tranquility of the home, combined with its seclusion, yet access to the town of Julian makes it a place we are very likely to return to again and again. And once the weather cleared, we took to the trails, which never disappoint. We'll be back! :)

Spacious, comfortable, excellent view. All the luxuries of home

  • 5 of 5

Close to town. Clean, comfortable, and lots of room to spread out both inside and out. We felt almost like we were at home. We have stayed at other homes in Julian but this was by far the greatest! Very much enjoyed the complimentary apple cider waiting for us in the fridge. You can tell the owner's put thoughtfulness and care in providing a place for guests to enjoy! Thanks for a memorable experience.

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.
