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
