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!

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
