I booked the retreat for our management team for a two day meeting. Julien and Anat were a pleasure to deal with and answered my many questions promptly and were very accommodating for our group. If you are looking for a quiet offsite meeting space away from the city, I would recommend this place highly. Please note that there is... More

Whenever I'm in Ojai whether for business or pleasure I stay at Pepper Tree. It's comfortable, quiet, and relaxing and best of all no TV! Comfortable bed, good breakfast, and they even have English Breakfast tea. I'll be back!

Very clean , turn of the century rooms in old ranch and cottage buildings. No drinking, loud music , T.V., etc. Quiet friendly place to unwind. Former home of J. Krishnamurti , non- denominational, retreat with no agenda to push. You can be left alone or join in discussions, yoga, lots of good hiking trails into the mountains. Beautiful place.

The Pepper Tree is a lovely, ambient place. It's convenient to downtown Ojai. Our needs were tended to promptly and courteously. Comfortable bed and great breakfast, decadent raisin bread! I'd come back.

The retreat house, my room, and the entire grounds provided a wonderfully reflective environment for such an intensive guided retreat. I really appreciated the attention to environmental concerns while still providing beauty and comfort for guests.

I participated at a retreat, Re-Discovering the Timeless Unburdened Mind. Pepper Tree was very well suited for the dialogues that we practiced in different settings every day. We alternated between beautiful outdoor places around the retreat, giving good shade for the sun and also made use of the spacious meeting room and the yoga room. Pepper Tree is surroundl by...

All around an excellent trip. Once of the best experience as far as a peaceful and high quality service. We stayed in their largest suite (Besant Suite) and it had that old rustic feel with 60+ years of antique furniture but all maintained very well. If you are looking for a Hilton type state-of-the-art environment then this is not that.... More

My last trip to Ojai was half vacation, half work. Pepper Tree is always a very relaxing place to stay. Extremely friendly and efficient staff. Love their beds and their hospitality! I've been there several times and have found guests were friendly too.

If you like a true nature retreat that this is the place to be. Wonderful surroundings and peaceful above the morning clouds. Not for everyone since it is dated but this just adds to the charm. A wonderful get away from the hectic city life.
