I was just here for my second visit. The Ojai Retreat is fast becoming one of the most joyful places I can think to go. The grounds are spectacularly pretty, nestled in nature and close to hiking trails. The rooms are beautifully furnished, extremely clean, private and contain a kitchenette. Wonderful views of nature out the windows. Each room is... More

We have had a "bummer summer" as my husband puts it, and needed to get away and declare a moratorium on even talking about any of it! The Ojai Retreat fit the bill beyond perfectly. It sits atop a hill and has a view of the Ojai Valley that is lovely. There are NO TVs in the rooms....which, for us,... More

Loved our stay. Although we live in Ventura we were needing a little r and r so we booked a few days here and left here feeling refreshed and content. Our room was wonderful, the grounds tranquil, the staff wonderful and courteous. We had the pleasure of experiencing the new organic mattress they just acquired and we could not have... More

Wow, Just stayed at the Ojai retreat and it was the perfect getaway for my girlfriend and me. The staff were all super friendly and helpful and the breakfast was so much more than what you normally get. Really yummy gronola, bagels, cakes, cheese's, oatmeal and lots of teas to choose from. The ground are kept up perfectly and the... More

I spent three days at the Ojai Retreat recently, as a bridesmaid, for a wedding and reception here. It was beautifully manicured and extremely scenic and relaxing. I spent much time with the nursery grounds director and she put a lot of love and effort into ensuring that the retreat grounds and wedding looked beautiful. The view was excellent and... More

I recently got married here on 8/3/14 and had my whole family from out of town stay here as well for the wedding. Things couldn't have turned out better. The grounds are well kept and beautifully manicured, rooms were clean, and the breakfast in the morning was great. The views at night are amazing and really gives you a peaceful... More

Recently we stayed for 2 nights at the Ojai Retreat. It is blissfully quiet & was a true Retreat from our road weary travels. No TVs! AC! Lovely, recently remodeled quiet rooms! Views! Welcoming staff! Awesome, healthy breakfast buffet included in room rate! I had stayed there before and was glad to share it this time with my husband. It... More

We needed a few days away and chose Ojai as our destination. The Ojai Retreat was described on the internet as one of the most relaxing b&bs in the US, so we made reservations. It did not fail us. We stayed in the Balcony room which is newly redone. There was a fantastic view from the balcony and the bed,... More

Booked at the Ojai Retreat based on the glowing reviews from Tripadvisor. Unfortunately, the reviews left me wondering where everyone else stayed. First the Pros: 1. Reservations and pre-visit communication - Clare was a pleasure to talk to and very helpful with all aspects of my reservation and my questions. 2. Staff - The staff I encountered were very friendly... More

If I could give Ojai Retreat 10-stars I definitely would. Ojai Retreat is quiet and serene, sitting on top of a hill overlooking Ojai valley. Service and quality of rooms are top notch and deserve 10 stars.
