My sister and I came to Ojai on a girls getaway, and decided on the Lavender Inn after looking at options on the internet. We liked the ability to choose our room in this well-maintained and nicely decorated B&B. We arrived late at night, and found a note from the manager with instructions on how to enter. We tiptoed to our room , at the top of the stairs. It was the Craftsman, with bath, overlooking the frogpond in the large and lovely garden. The B&B has 7 rooms in the house and also has a 2-room cottage, which was perfect for a couple with dogs. Sis updated her Facebook page while waiting for coffee to be available at 8 am, and a sumptious breakfast at 9. We enjoyed visiting with the manager/cook and the other guests over breakfast. The Inn is an easy walk to all of the town's shops and restaurants, and to a variety of spa options. Each afternoon at 5 pm we were ready for the wine and cheese social, and more socializing with guests.
