The Ojai Valley is one of Southern California's truly wonderful tourist destinations. Fifteen miles northeast from Ventura's excellent beaches, just eighty miles north of Los Angeles, with Santa Barbara just twenty-five miles over a spectacular mountain highway pass, Ojai is at once remote and readily accessible. Tucked into the Los Padres National Forest wilderness, between beautiful Lake Casitas and the 4500 to 5000 feet Topa Topa (multi-colored)Mountains, this pristine area and friendly little town of under 10,000 was the site for Shangri-La in the 1937 film "Lost Horizon" based on the novel by James Hilton, starring Ronald Coleman and directed by Frank Capra.
With an overall cottage-like feel, our rooms feature super comfy beds, hardwood floors, glass tile countertops and whimsical nods to nature.
We have carefully selected a deliciously fresh and eco-concious new line of bath products: Green from NATÜRA. With their environmental focus, the collection features tubes made with PCR (Post Consumer Recycled) material and EcoPure. EcoPure is an organic additive that accelerates the plastic decomposition process. All tubes and accessories in the program are recyclable. All products are printed with naturally derived, environmentally friendly inks made from soy beans. The product itself feels and smells wonderful too!
We offer high speed Wi-Fi, flat screens with premium cable, a great pool area and a warm and inviting fireplace in the reception area. You are welcome to bring your less than gigantic dog and enjoy our pet friendly Patio rooms. As a member of the hospitality industry, customer service is our primary goal. In the guest rooms themselves, you'll find such amenities as refrigerators, microwaves, cable television, and air-conditioning. We pride ourselves in our commitment to you and to make sure your stay is an enjoyable one.
Relaxation and enjoyment are key to our spacious grounds, lawns, and gardens. The pool and sundeck lounging area are completely enclosed for your safety and privacy. Enjoy a complementary coffee, hot coco and assorted teas each afternoon and evening. Our expansive front yard includes a large green lawn area perfect for a picnic and a contemplative wood bench. We strive to create the ideal atmosphere for shedding yesterday's concerns, feeling comfortable and just relaxing into the Ojai vibe. Chief Peak Mountain forms a massive postcard view from just about anywhere on the property, and our family of multi-colored, high-spirited little Hummingbirds don't seem to mind a bit how close you get.
Soule Park Public PGA Golf Course is directly across the street. There are public tennis courts all through Ojai. Restaurants, shopping, museums, art and pottery galleries, parks, Ojai's quaint and festive downtown area, are all within a three to eight block walking distance.
