My husband and I spent 3 days at the Lavender Inn for his birthday. We will definitely stay here again when we return. The breakfasts were delicious, with enough variety to cover all morning eating habits (well ... no meat for the carnivores among us). Our room and bed were very comfortable. We had a balcony that looked over the...

Hi Nancy! Thank you for your review! Our breakfasts are amazing, but you are right...we've gone so healthy (while delicious) and cater to so many diets (gluten-free, dairy free, vegetarian and vegan) that we've forgotten carnivores. We just started adding back a variety of specialty chicken sausages on the weekends. Your comment reminded me that we don't want to forget...

This review is long overdue; my apologies to all of the wonderful staff at Lavender Inn and Mister the cat. Lavender Inn is a beautiful, quaint bed and breakfast right in the middle of downtown Ojai. We had our wedding there in October and rented out the entire Inn for our family and friends. From the moment we checked in...

Every detail of my stay was perfect - The location is unbeatable right in town, yet charming and quiet. I walked to the restaurants, shops, hiking, yoga, and more.

We had a fabulous weekend in Ojai thanks mostly to the Lavender Inn! It was the perfect getaway from San Diego. We arrived at check in time and were immediately escorted to our room. Room #2 was perfect for us, as my main requests for a room were a king size bed and a private bathroom. We had previously booked...

Made the Lavender Inn home base for a mother/daughter writing retreat. Our room was pretty, the bed was comfortable, the bathroom was spotless. The Inn has lovely public spaces with many interesting and historic details. We enjoyed sitting in the breakfast room for typing at our computers as well as during the evening wine and cheese hour and of course...

Wow, I can tell you are a writer, Mary - such a flowing, thorough review! We do get numerous writers coming for an individual's or small group writers' retreat. I hope you made it to Bart's Books, the outdoor bookstore, down the street. You'll have to come back to experience the other local farm-to-table restaurants! Ojai is a mecca for...

No better location than the Lavender Inn! We parked our car upon arrival, and didn't use it until we had to load up to return home. An old 1920's converted schoolhouse that was charming and comfortable. sitting on the back patio with a glass or more of wine (included), and evening snacks, is a must. Best times of year to...

So glad you enjoyed your stay! We do have air conditioning during the summer months or any other day during the year - I cannot imagine not having it. I hope you didn't experience a problem with the buildings not being chill enough. Please come back for another ride to the beach. We'll make sure your stay inside has the...

I love this place. I wish I can spend more time here. Located one block from the main street, it has beautiful garden. Each room has it own unique decor. We stayed at the room called tree house. It has two big windows and surrounded by tree tops. It also has a mountain view, very cozy. The breakfast is excellent...

The Lavender Inn has 8 rooms. Two of those rooms share a bath. We stayed in one of those rooms and the bath was literally a step away. The other six have their own.

Hi Dusty! I'm always surprised how popular our rooms that share a bath - Cozy Retreat and the Treehouse - are. Guests seem to not miss a private bath - it's just not an issue. The rooms are cute and the best deals in Ojai because the full breakfast and daily wine and cheese for two are included in the...

Hi Bruce! We not only enjoy our guests, but we love the dogs that stay with us! Yours were so well behaved...though we find that most people like you who travel with their dogs have incredibly behaved dogs as well. Come back to explore more hikes and also more restaurants that are dog friendly!!!

Located near the center of this small, slow growth town of Ojai, the Lavender Inn is an idyllic get-a-way from all your big city woes. The property is an old school house built in 1874 and has been converted into a delightful and serene Bed and Breakfast. Their private garden with the soothing sounds from several water features offer an...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Blending comfort with elegance, the Lavender Inn is conveniently located across from shops, galleries, and restaurants. Originally built in 1874, this Bed & Breakfast offers a ROMANTIC GETAWAGIRLS NIGHT OUT AT THE INN, intimate business workshops, family reunions, or a QUIET RETREAT. The gardens are absolutely stunning with mature oaks, 7 fountains, a petite waterfall into a petite pond, and colorful flowers for our GARDEN WEDDINGS. The interior is tastefully decorated with an array of art and antiques but with a subtle modern twist. Full, GOURMET BREAKFASTS and housemade TAPAS & WINE are served daily on the veranda. Put on one of our lush robes and wander out the front steps for a facial or massage in our LAVENDER INN SPA. Look for our COOKING CLASSES in our kitchen, Ojai Culinary School, with visiting chefs. We are proud to have created a 3 day CANCER WELLNESS RETREAT, InnCourage, free to underserved women undergoing treatment for cancer - a full time on-site counselor, massages, facials, healthy cooking class, American Cancer Society Look Good Feel Better make-up & wigs, and support from fellow cancer patients.
