A great feeling to this retreat. Quiet, excellent but unobtrusive service, great views and convenient to everything. Extensive grounds to hike around. Lovely outdoor areas to sit and relax, read, sketch, look at the view.

My new husband and I stayed here 3 nights during our honeymoon for some rest and relaxation. It was the perfect choice. The views are gorgeous and the property status quiet so you can have tranquility at any time. Restaurants are not far, though fat enough that you feel removed from city life. I will be staying here again!

This retreat is just outside the town center, perched in a lovely spot on top of a hill with great views in most directions, including from most rooms, which have patios or balconies. While it is a bit rustic by nature, everything works well, it is clean and well cared for, and one can feel the love the owners put...

I love my visits to the Ojai Retreat. The quiet, the views, the lovely simple breakfasts. It's a wonderful place to rest, read, create (I write there), and recharge after living in nearby Los Angeles. I've been visiting regularly for several years, and I can't wait to go back.

I was pulled to the Ojai Retreat when I came across the website earlier in the year when I booked my flight to LA. I travelled from Venice, LA, which took 90 minutes. I arrived and immeditately felt the peace and tranquility of the retreat. I just sat down in the outside areas under the shade of the many trees...

This is where you go when you want to unplug for a while, listen to the crickets singing at night, and songbirds at daybreak. Vast canyons, quiet nights, and sunny, peaceful days. I highly recommend this venue for a day or two (or more!) to re-boot and heal. NOTE: Do yourself a favor and have dinner at The Ranch House...

I loved the Ojai Retreat. It was clean, comfortable and peaceful. It was very reasonably priced and included breakfast and access to the library/quiet areas 24hrs a day including tea and coffee. Ulrich went out of his way to ensure I had a wonderful trip and I would highly recommend this place!

The staff was friendly, helpful. My room was very private with beautiful views. The room was attractively decorated, and furnished. Loved my private outside sitting area where I did my morning yoga. The Sky room allowed me to see the sunset not visible from most parts of the property mostly because of trees.

This is a great place if you want a quiet break from life's demands in a beautiful setting with views of the surrounding mountains. The rooms are simple, yet clean and well-supplied. The grounds are clean and beautiful. The vibe is one of quietness and contemplation. The best vegetarian breakfast you'll ever see and eat is included with the room:...

I loved everything about this place and our room! The room and common areas were well maintained and very clean. There is a serene, retreat-like feel to the place. The view from our room overlooking the valley was breath-taking! The complimentary breakfast was fresh and flavorful. I was actually surprised by how reasonably priced the room was for the quality....
