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.

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
