The Lavender Inn is a special place. The owner and staff are exceptional; quality people offering a quality B&B experience. The B&B itself is delightful with beautiful gardens and uplifting decor. I recommend the Provence Cottage if you like more space and privacy as it has its own private outdoor space. Although, all the rooms are delightful through their own... More

Wonderful to sit on the porch or the side yard garden. The inside is quite roomy and light. It's decorated in craftsman or mission style. The cottage (one bedroom + living room annex off of the kitchen) was quite comfortable. The vegetarian breakfasts were very good. It's euro bread with homemade jam, granola and an omelette or other egg dish... More

I've now spent two New Year's Eve weekends at the Lavender Inn. Both occasions have been delightful! The Inn is charming and well appointed with a sprawling garden. Rooms are comfortable and clean (I stayed in the Garden View). The location in town is ideal. Breakfasts are health oriented and deliver flavor in every forkful! Evening wine receptions are a...

This Bed and Breakfast is totally charming. The owner and staff wonderful, the guests interesting and outgoing. My husband and I felt right at home....we almost didn't want to leave. They offer great breakfasts and tasty treats and wine between 5 and 6 in the evening. There is a lot to do within walking distance of the Inn including shopping,... More

I highly recommend this wonderful B&B! An historic Victorian home 1/2 block from the downtown Ojai area (such as it is), and every room is a lovely gem. Some come with bathrooms; others have shared bathrooms. Each is charmingly decorated, all around a particular theme. I stayed in the Craftsman room, which was spacious with its own bathroom, and at... More

I am from Laguna Beach and came back to the Lavender Inn.. I cannot get enough of this place. The grounds, the staff, the rooms, the killer breakfasts and the tapas with wine make this beautiful place way above the rest. I strongly recommend it to anyone looking to get away and totally relax.

This was my second stay at The Lavender Inn and once again it does not disappoint. It's wonderfully located within easy walking distance of great restaurants and much of the town. The staff also gave us great recommendations on local hiking spots - which were stellar - as well as great dining spots nearby. The breakfast was delicious and offered... More

This is the only place in Ojai worth staying. The hardest part is getting a weekend stay as it seems always fully book even months ahead. I came to visit my daughter at the Weil Academy and found it very conveniently located and there's a great healthy grocery shop in front. Very safe and I felt just at home. Looking... More

We were very happy to find the Lavender Inn. We had been wanting to check out Ojai for some time and had found the Lavender Inn online. Everything exceeded our expectations. The Inn was very clean, staff was extremely friendly and accomodating, food was delicious and the location was perfect. We especially loved the late afternoon tapas and wine. We... More

We rented out the Lavender Inn for the weekend of Memorial Day for our daughter's wedding. The wedding was in the garden, and the wedding party all stayed in the Inn for the weekend. The staff, the facility, the entire experience was flawless, fantastic, and made great memories that will last a lifetime. Excellent meals showed up without hassle or... More
