The grounds are great with plenty of places for quiet contemplation in beautiful surroundings, yet there...

Beautiful setting, delicious breakfast, comfortable bed, wonderful view from our Garden Room. Very simple quiet place, we will make it our spot in Ojai. Staff were attentive, not intrusive. Very pretty gardens to walk through.

This is my second stay at this small gem. The location is excellent. It is on top of a hill offering grand views of the surrounding mountains and yet close to all of the amenities Ojai has to offer. My room was clean and comfortable. The beds and pillows are excellent. I thought that the included morning breakfasts were tasty...

With no televisions or radios to distract us, we rested beautifully. The grounds were lush and green with beautiful pathways that inspired and brought a sense of peace to my work. Hawks flew above,...

I spend 3 full days there for a Writers' Retreat and is was the perfect location both for the retreat and for writing. I highly recommend it. It's quiet, the rooms are very comfortable and...

This is my favorite place to stay in Ojai. The people are very friendly and the grounds are relaxing and serene. The perfect getaway for those who want peace and quiet. The breakfast is very good with lots of organics - very European style although can use a little more protein. The rooms are very tranquil, many with amazing views....
