I came to the Ojai Retreat for two night and stayed in the Garden Room, which was just perfect.
My husband had reserved the room for me as a birthday present so I could get away to do some writing--away from the kids and the barking dogs, etc. Turned out to be a GREAT place to work and to concentrate. At times I felt like I should NOT be working and just meditating or napping, but to me, having a "Room of One's Own"--space and time is all the peace I need.
The Garden Room is just lovely, too. As I sat working at the corner table, I had a lovely view of the valley, and I was amazed at the number and species of birds that I saw in the oak tree just outside the window--woodpeckers, blue jays, towhees, crows, and many other interesting species that I've never seen before!
Finally, the breakfasts are just wonderful. A lovely woman (sorry, I've forgotton her name!) prepares a delicious breakfast with eggs and veggie sausage and fruit salad, lots of breads and condiments, teas, juices, and the BEST homemade granola. I ate my breakfast out in the patio watched a couple of black phoebes take a bath in some water that had pooled in a pot.
Overall, it was a wonderful stay. No complaints whatsoever.
