We have stayed at the Ojai Retreat twice now, and both times were wonderful visits. The setting is beautiful and serene, the rooms (stayed in Cozy and Topa Topa) clean and comfortable, the included breakfast hearty and delicious. The staff is friendly, welcoming and accommodating. The inn is a short drive from town, restaurants and hiking. This is an ideal... More

I spent 6 peaceful, quiet, and thoughtful days & nights at the Ojai Retreat. This being my 4th trip to Ojai inside of one year, and having tried several other places of lodging, the Ojai Retreat was by far the place most suited to my needs. The setting is unparalleled, the rooms unique, very roomy and comfortable. If you want... More

We loved it! The views are amazing and the sky at night is breathtaking. I felt very relaxed and at peace there. My only real complaint would be the pot hole infested road that leads up to the property.

We stayed at the Ojai Retreat on 11/16/14 and the accommodations, staff and food were all amazing. Situated on a hill with 360 degree views of the Ojai valley only added to its charm and peaceful / inspiring ambiance --highly recommend this wonderful place to all!

This is one of my all-time favorite places. Last time I included a yelp review and thought I'd better put it on trip advisor as well. This is one of those hidden gems that you can miss if you don't know about it. It is not your traditional resorts it is a "retreat" designed to decompress and revitalize your spirit.... More

We had never visited Ojai before and could only spend one night, but we wish we could have spent several more. This hilltop gem is, literally, at the end of the road, so keep driving until you arrive at this Shangri La. We stayed in the Garden Room, which was perfectly situated overlooking the Ojai Valley. You can sit out... More

I came to Ojai to screen my film and my Associate Producer arranged for us to stay at Ojai Retreat. While she had said it was a special place, I had no idea I was up for such a treat. The location is beautiful, the atmosphere peaceful, and the people are warm. I ended up staying longer and feel replenished.

Very quiet, picturesque B&B located just outside of Ojai. Loved the Sky Suite's view of the mountains. Great private patio and all around lovely surroundings. Room was plenty big enough with a kitchenette and an extra sitting room with a day bed. No TV, clock or radio in the room, but didn't miss it. The breakfast was good for continental... More

My husband and I stayed at the Ojai Retreat for a weekend for our 20th wedding anniversary. I was nervous about booking the "perfect place." The Ojai Retreat turned out to be just that. We stayed in the Green Room, which is in the main house. I was a little worried when we arrived to see that the entry to... More

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
