Surrounded by the Los Padres National Forest and majestic Topa Topa Mountains, Ojai’s unique micro-climate offers the ideal setting for many outdoor activities such as tennis, hiking, biking, swimming and golf on our historic championship course. Only 14 miles from the Pacific Ocean, kayaking, fishing and boating top the list for water-themed activities.

The Inn’s 220 tree-lined acres are the perfect setting for 303 spacious and graciously-appointed guestrooms which evoke a feeling of California’s rich history, while embracing subtle modern touches. Immaculately landscaped, with many indigenous, mature plantings, discerning guests quickly discover the sense of place for which the Inn is known. Dining choices offer menus focusing on fresh local ingredients, a 31,000 square-foot Spa Village, and an Artist Cottage and Apothecary with unique classes complete the perfect scenario for a memorable getaway.
