Very comfortable Bed and Breakfast on a hill, close to Ojai, California. Convenient location is very close to Ojai's downtown, but peaceful at the same time. Has great views, very comfortable room, quiet AC.

Stayed in the Patio cabin. Perfect size room, very clean and quiet. Quiet A/C at work. Bed was comfortable, not too soft. Bathroom had tiled tub area/shower. Good shelf space. Kitchen area... More

The inn is beautiful and grounds are spacious and well maintained . My son took his dog and she too was happy. We were in two lovely "dog rooms" by Jimmy's Pub. Rooms were spotless and service was excellent. It is a great place to walk with human friends or your best friend. Although there were several dogs there we... More

This is the most tranquil place to stay - there are 12 rooms and most have spectacular views of the Ojai Valley. This is where you can see the famous 'pink moment' as the sun sets behind the mountains. The staff and management I rate aas excellent.

The lovely Ojai Retreat is a small slice of a time gone by - a time that heals without doctors, and feeds the soul with a bounty of beauty, quietude, and old world comfort. I cannot provide a higher recommendation. The Retreat is comprised of twelve guest rooms, eight of which are private cottages. There is a lovely main house... More

Peaceful Oasis – Highly Recommended. This is truly a retreat and healing getaway. I've find it to be a wonderful place to read, write or be with my husband. It is surrounded by beautiful grounds that glow in the pink moment sunsets over the mountains. There is soothing room décor, a welcoming staff, and a delicious breakfast with gluten-free options,...

After our large Los Angeles wedding, my new husband and I longed for peace and quiet on our honeymoon. The Ojai Retreat was perfect for us. It's comfortable, clean, and picturesque with a simple, unpretentious style. They also served the best continental breakfast I've ever had. Coffee, tea, and drinking water were conveniently available all day. We arrived on a... More
