We had been "eye-ing" the appealing ads for Pepper Tree Retreat ever since we began attending the Ojai Music Festival, five or six years ago. But when we knew we wanted an Ojai getaway for our 50th anniversary, we didn't hesitate to decide on Peppertree. Little did we know how amazingly wonderful it would be. We were greeted by Michelle, who showed us around, and made us feel so welcome and comfortable. Our room was spacious and comfortable, with loads of trees watching over us through the expansive picture windows. And from our balcony, we could take in the lush orange groves, and look out over the Valley. Breakfast was a wonderful way to meet and converse with the staff and other guests, but in a serene, unobtrusive way, with everyone respecting individual needs for quiet and contemplation. We had the opportunity to learn about Krishnamurti, as many books by him and about him, were on bookshelves throughout the Inn and of course in his beautiful library. We will return to this spiritual place as often as we can.
