Ojai Retreat was exactly what we needed to celebrate our 48th anniversary! It’s quiet, secluded, bans children under 12 and pets, and it has no television. Tranquil doesn’t begin to describe it! The retreat is located atop a hill, west of the town of Ojai. It consists of four buildings containing rooms, plus a large main house, which houses rooms... More

The Ojai retreat is aptly named, as it is truly a retreat from the stresses and noise of everyday life. Situated high on a hill with spectacular views, the grounds are quiet and lovely, and you feel like you have stepped into your own private world of peace. The staff is very friendly and accommodating, the facilities are charming, the... More

Stayed here last week from May 17-19. It was EXACTLY what I needed. Away from the city, up on a hill overlooking Ojai (the views are breathtaking!), and a very quiet place where I can just unwind, meditate, and relax. There were trails you can walk on next to the retreat, and the people there are super nice! I stayed... More

The Ojai Valley is a beautiful location and this BNB makes the most of its location which affords peace, quiet and amazing views of the Ojai Valley. It's amenities include a refrigerator, microwave, sink and some flatware and dishes and glasses. We stayed in the Sky Suite which allows a second person some privacy. The room was clean and comfortable... More

Just compare the Ojai Retreat with The Ojai Valley Inn resort and Spa... The Retreat is all yours and you have a charming paradise just for your people- and this for....almost nothing compared to Ojai Valley Inn -only the "privilege " to be on the premises is 40,000$,Seriously?

It's a lovely property with simple, well-designed clean rooms. The staff are awesome. Very comfortable. Free wifi (very important!). Delicious, simple breakfasts. Coffee and tea is always available in the main house. Charming and quiet...what more could one ask for?

I feel very fortunate to have found the Ojai Retreat Center online. I had traveled to Ojai some years ago, but at that time had a good friend living there, so I always had a place to stay. When my friend from England and I decided to visit Ojai, I needed to check for accommodations. Most places were plush, overpriced... More

I absolutely love this place. I try to come at least twice a year to get my fix. This time I came with my bestie for her birthday and shared the beauty of this amazing place with her.

My husband and I spent two nights at the Ojai Retreat in the Oak Room for a romantic getaway and we will definitely return. The grounds and views are gorgeous and the setting is very tranquil. There are no loud parties or people here and children under 12 are not allowed, which means you can actually relax. The Oak room... More
