Ojai Retreat, a slice of Shangri-La, sits on a private 5 acre hilltop overlooking the Ojai Valley. Situated just minutes from town and yet it feels like a world away. Guests have access to the two story main house where a delicious European buffet style breakfast is served seven days a week. The first floor offers a spacious and bright living-room with picture windows and a welcoming fireplace. On the second floor, guests can enjoy reading, writing, yoga and meditating in the Quiet Room/Library.

The gardens and walking trails are abundant throughout the property for guests to enjoy.

All guest rooms have been remodeled and are new throughout including furniture, A/C and heating units. Most contain microwaves/refrigerators. Nine guest rooms have their own private garden/patio with beautiful hillside views. » See policies here.
