Welcome to Ojai Valley

All rooms have a refrigerator and microwave, free wifi, and are TV-free and telephone-free. A delicious European-style buffet breakfast is served every morning.
Ojai Retreat also offers three beautiful outdoor event venues, as well as a nature trail, and two meeting rooms in the Main House which contain books on spirituality and philosophy, and books by local Ojai authors.

The Los Angeles Times placed Ojai Retreat at the top of the list of places to stay in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties.
“Beauty and peace: I visit family in Ojai at least once a year, and the Ojai Retreat is my home-away-from-home. I treasure its beauty and peacefulness. There are no TV’s or phones, and the atmosphere is quiet and serene. A lovely breakfast is served every morning in the main building. I’ve stayed in several rooms at various times, but I have my favorite. Each is different, so study the descriptions on the website.”
“Top of the world: If you are looking to recharge, commune with nature and enjoy a fabulous view, you need this place. The rooms are quiet and spread around the top of a hill with a 360 degree view of the valleys below. No TVs but there are microwaves and refrigerators in the rooms. Everything was spotlessly clean. The 5 acre property is located a short distance from downtown Ojai with a great restaurant at the bottom of the hill for dinner.”
“Peaceful Ojai Retreat: For my husband and I, this tranquil spot is our escape from city life and all its intensity. The clean accommodations, organic breakfasts and peaceful atmosphere are just what we are looking for to unplug and rejuvenate! The director, Ulrich and his warm and friendly staff are always available to help, if needed. They make every guest feel at home and do everything possible to make every stay special. We love this place!”
