We arrived in Ojai without a reservation and went to look at the Ojai Retreat based on its top rating. The hilltop setting is wonderful and we liked the Ojai Suite, so we took it for two nights. The two rooms were small but comfortable, and it has a very nice private terrace with a panoramic valley view, although the... More

Everytime I visit this place it seems to get even better (as thought that's even possible because it's already amazing). This time they gave me a room that actually had an organic mattress. What a luxury! The key wonder of this place, aside from the amazing natural surroundings, the top notch facilities and world-class management, is the ambiance. You feel... More

My fiance surprised me for my birthday with an overnight stay at this lovely bed & breakfast retreat. Everything that I had read about it was absolutely correct...and then some. From the moment that we arrived, we were welcomed by Clare, the charming manager, who made us feel so very welcome. We stayed in the Ojai Suite and it was... More

I loved staying here. The view was breathtaking, I stayed in the garden room which was charming. The main house was very warm and inviting, I really enjoyed the library. This is a great place to go to disconnected from everything and just enjoy nature. It's also located very close to the center of town but not too close. I... More

The Ojai Retreat is an oasis of tranquility and the perfect place to relax . Read a book near the waterfall or walk on the nature path. Stay in a well appointed cottage, enjoy a healthy breakfast in the main house. The Ojai Retreat is fast becoming my home away from home

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
