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

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.

We chose the Ojai Retreat on the recommendation of a friend. Nestled in the hills, you are rewarded with a sweeping view of the valley after a short drive up a private road. The Practical We booked the Sky Suite, which, after having walked around the property, seemed to be the most private of all the cottages. It comes with... More

We stayed at the Ojai retreat en route to San Francisco and enjoyed the 'away from it all' feel and beautiful gardens. Breakfast was delicious and taken on the terrace with magnificent views of the mountains. Our host was friendly and efficient. Our rooms were clean and well-equipped. The beds were super comfortable! We left Ojai feeling refreshed after a... More
