The Pepper Tree Retreat is nestled in the hills not far from Ventura, and it is wonderfully secluded, quite, charming, and peaceful. When you walk outside you really feel like you are in nature, lots of birds, squirrels, rabbits, and flowers. And on top of that, it happens to be where the famous philosopher Jiddu Krishnamurti lived when he was... More

From the moment we stepped through the front door and walked into the living room, we felt completely at home. The rooms are comfortable and individually furnished and the staff warm and welcoming. There is a serenity that envelopes the whole property, making it hard to leave whenit's time to move on

I enjoyed my weekend here immensely. The grounds and the accommodations are beautiful, peaceful, and very restful. The staff and other guests were all very humble, authentic and easy to connect with. Being a little removed from Ojai proper made the retreat feel more secluded, which I appreciated. Yet, it was simple to travel to and from town. I look... More

If you wanna get away from your busy life, check this place out. I stayed for one night and it was just what the doctor ordered! :) The house is very very quiet, and the rooms are quite close to one another so this isn't a traditional hotel experience. No loud music (or any music at all) no TV, I... More

This place is truly a "retreat". It is secluded, serene, and very inviting. The group breakfast was nice because it allowed all the handful of guests (from all over the world) to meet each other. I was sorry I couldn't stay longer!

We came up last weekend just for a night for our anniversary. With the current heatwave I inquired ahead of time to be sure our room had good air conditioning. (it did!) our room was quite spacious and very nice. Justin was very friendly and polite. Nice healthy breakfast is available in the morning.

My car was overheating when I arrived at the Pepper Tree retreat on the Saturday afternoon of Labor Day weekend. It was 95 degrees and I was miserable. I went to the front desk and Julien couldn't have been kinder of more helpful. He quickly calmed me and made an appointment for Monday with a reputable and sweet mechanic. He... More

The physical environment couldn't be more beautiful and the overall atmosphere more welcoming. The aura of serenity which pervades the place and is reflected in the staff's graciousness makes it only natural to relax and tune into the energies exemplified by Krishnamurti's influence. I can't think of a more comfortable and welcoming place to visit and I hope to return... More

Amazing place. Very good staff. Healthy vegetarian food. And very peaceful if one wants to quietly contemplate on deeper issues of life. Nice collection of books and videos on J. Krishnamurti's teachings.
