Owner info

About the owner: 'FIND A NEED AND FILL IT has been a guiding principle for both Loretta, my wife of 65 years, and myself. When I retired from my career as a teacher and school administrator and she retired from her career as a nurse, rather then have me drive her to work and play golf until time to bring her home, we looked around to see what needs we could find. Loretta quickly saw a need for overnight housing since Julian was rapidly becoming a center for tourism. Bed-and-breakfast was such a new concept in California that our friends asked if we were going to serve breakfast in bed. Nobody knew much about how to proceed so we just opened our doors and started. To say that it was an instant success would be an understatement. There was a very real need, and both of us, having spent most of our lives in professions that served people, were ideally suited to it.

Why the Owner Chose Julian, CA, USA:
This rental has everything one is looking for when searching for a unique getaway. Being situated on ten acres allows for seclusion and privacy, along with the tranquility we often seek. The marvelous details of the room ensures that our guests will receive a remarkable experience.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The creative details of this property is what sets it apart from the rest. Our most requested room never disappoints guests with new surprises at every turn. Find peace, serenity, and relaxation at this scenic ranch. When feeling adventurous, embark on various adventures in our nearby towns to see what the country life is about. We invite you to find your dream mountain vacation at Shadow Mountain Ranch.
