The Peppertree Retreat is not a hotel, its a place to come and reflect and rest. The emphasis is on Krishnamurti who lived and spoke here until he died in 1986. The grounds are peaceful, the buildings are peaceful and the breakfasts are healthy & organic. You are several miles away from Ojai in the orange groves. Treat yourself to... More

We spent two lovely nights... while in Ojai took long and short trail hikes (especially liked the loop above Shelf Road to Fuelbreak Road, 2 hours plus, gorgeous) and ate at excellent restaurants... open air bookstore... Ojai is cool, friendly people... read and thought about Krishnamurti, and spoke over breakfast with Michael Krohnen, who knew him well (author of 101... More

I thought this place was more like a bed and breakfast. I honestly haven't been to a B&B, so I cannot compare. My husband was feeling romantic and surprise me by booking a quick getaway. (yes let's hide from the kiddo!). It was a really pleasant surprise, it is very, very quiet and the place has history. It used to... More

The retreat is grounded on Krishnamurti yet worth going to for more than just a new view on life through his words. The beds are amazingly comfortable and the surrounding mountains and trails make it a hiking dream. The staff are great and the entire area has a very peaceful authentic vibe that is hard to replicate in the traditional... More

My husband and I want to highly recommend the Pepper Tree Retreat for a very affordable retreat in the Ojia area. The manager there, Julien, has a true heart to serve others and bends over backwards to accommodate. He himself is a great asset and a blessing. He took time to show us maps of the area and talk through... More

Stayed with my lady friend for one night in Jan 2015. I'm not spiritual or philosophical in any sense of the word(s). I do like relaxing and the outdoors. We stayed in the Lennon room and it was quite nice. Old buildings but very clean and updated. Really strong heaters (it was raining and cold when we were there). The... More

Thank you for everything. We love everything about it. Peaceful and comfortable place as well as lovely staff and people. I would recommend this to EVERYONE. The place was so peaceful and still. It was such a nice experience to be at Krishnamurti's house and see all the history about the place. Michael (who was Krishnamurti's Chef was so nice... More

Lovely, soft and serene is the best way to describe this place. We stayed in the Lennon room, the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. The staff was friendly and helpful. Loved the yoga building on the little hill, the sweet pathway to it and the healthy herb garden. Of course going through Pine Cottage was so special. The... More

This is great place for people who want to have a little time for solitude and quiet mind, personally i enjoyed it. This is not place for everybody, but for people who want to have some self reflecting time and trying to recapturing the silent space in their heart and mind. Thinking about going back soon!
