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.

I was there for a workshop and the beauty of the place kept me calm and in tune with nature. The staff operate like a family and the harmony is wonderful to experience. Overall, I would recommend this place for anyone looking for some quiet quality time.

We visit Ojai 2-3 times a year. This time all the hotels in downtown Ojai were booked, so we stayed at the Pepper Tree Retreat. The Pepper Tree is just four miles from downtown Ojai. It is located in a very quiet area, surrounded by orange trees. The retreat itself is a very old home, which is beautiful, but the... More

Just got back from Ojai. We had a wonderful experience! Staff, guests and interns were all very friendly. The grounds are magical and the aroma of the citrus trees combined with the peppercorn trees is indescribable. This is a place you come to think, and meditate on life. It's not a five star resort, so don't expect to be served... More

This was my second trip to Pepper Tree Retreat. A new herb and flower garden had been planted and a new gazebo built. All improvements to the property. The staff is still friendly and helpful and the breakfasts are amazing. Really enjoy the beauty and quietude of the place. A place to renew the spirit. As Krishnamurti once said, one... More

My wife and stayed here for a weekend. You get to pick the ripe oranges, site in the herbal garden watching the sun rise and set. On the weekends they serve a full breakfast. The place is very quiet. The location is away from downtown, but easy to get around in Ojai. We hike a trail that allowed us to... More

The quiet, tranquill ambience of Pepper Tree matches its lovely setting in the Ojai Valley. Pick your own orange from the orange grove outside the door. Visit Meditation Mount for a spectacular view of the valley..

We went to Pepper Tree because of the connections to Krishnamurti and Aldous Huxley. Michael Krohnen (author of "The Kitchen Chronicles", about his days as cook for Krishnamurti)) in the bookstore is great fun to talk to. The place is quiet (quiet hours, no amplified sounds; also no meat or alcohol or tobacco). Short drive to the town of Ojai... More

Quiet space to relax, reflect and refresh. Hiking trails and orange groves in a valley setting provide a serene space. Healthy breakfast food and friendly, courteous staff set the right tone. Pepper Tree is highly recommended.

We were up in Ojai for a wedding. We didn't want to spend tooo much on the weekend. We couldn't have been happier at the Pepper Tree Retreat. It was beautiful, quiet & filled with orange trees. What else do you need.
