Made the Lavender Inn home base for a mother/daughter writing retreat. Our room was pretty, the bed was comfortable, the bathroom was spotless. The Inn has lovely public spaces with many interesting and historic details. We enjoyed sitting in the breakfast room for typing at our computers as well as during the evening wine and cheese hour and of course... More

No better location than the Lavender Inn! We parked our car upon arrival, and didn't use it until we had to load up to return home. An old 1920's converted schoolhouse that was charming and comfortable. sitting on the back patio with a glass or more of wine (included), and evening snacks, is a must. Best times of year to...

I love this place. I wish I can spend more time here. Located one block from the main street, it has beautiful garden. Each room has it own unique decor. We stayed at the room called tree house. It has two big windows and surrounded by tree tops. It also has a mountain view, very cozy. The breakfast is excellent... More

The Lavender Inn has 8 rooms. Two of those rooms share a bath. We stayed in one of those rooms and the bath was literally a step away. The other six have their own. Every room is comfortable, cozy and charming. Great wine and cheese in the evening and a superb breakfast are included. Friendly staff and wonderful location. The... More

Enjoyed a night at the Inn for our anniversary. Too short. We stayed in the Lavender Cottage. Very spacious 2 rooms with large landscaped outdoor patio. Wine and tapas that evening were excellent and the full breakfast the next morning delicious. Steps from town but a trail head to a nice hike in the Los Padres National Park Very just... More

Located near the center of this small, slow growth town of Ojai, the Lavender Inn is an idyllic get-a-way from all your big city woes. The property is an old school house built in 1874 and has been converted into a delightful and serene Bed and Breakfast. Their private garden with the soothing sounds from several water features offer an... More

Just returned from another stay (three nights) at the lovely Lavender Inn, this time with my daughter. What a wonderful break it was for both of us! The innkeepers are warm, welcoming, helpful and accommodating - and they are FABULOUS culinary artists (more about that later). The grounds are beautiful and serene - with birds, butterflies, and of course Mr.... More

Prior to this trip I loved the Retreat, it's also in the corner with 2 beds. Perfect for a girlfriends getaway. This time I was alone and stayed in the Tree House, which is next door to the Retreat.

Every time we come up to Ojai it's our favorite place to stay with the vegan breakfast absolutely delicious and the staff is amazing truly my home away from home. Special treats for our dog even a sheet so he could sleep on the bed with us really is a great place. And a dog bed.

This B'n'B is by far the best I've ever visited. The staff made me feel like a long lost relative and greeted me every day with the warmest of greetings. The grounds were peaceful and serene, and the rooms were lovely. I will absolutely be back!!!!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Blending comfort with elegance, the Lavender Inn is conveniently located across from shops, galleries, and restaurants. Originally built in 1874, this Bed & Breakfast offers a ROMANTIC GETAWAGIRLS NIGHT OUT AT THE INN, intimate business workshops, family reunions, or a QUIET RETREAT. The gardens are absolutely stunning with mature oaks, 7 fountains, a petite waterfall into a petite pond, and colorful flowers for our GARDEN WEDDINGS. The interior is tastefully decorated with an array of art and antiques but with a subtle modern twist. Full, GOURMET BREAKFASTS and housemade TAPAS & WINE are served daily on the veranda. Put on one of our lush robes and wander out the front steps for a facial or massage in our LAVENDER INN SPA. Look for our COOKING CLASSES in our kitchen, Ojai Culinary School, with visiting chefs. We are proud to have created a 3 day CANCER WELLNESS RETREAT, InnCourage, free to underserved women undergoing treatment for cancer - a full time on-site counselor, massages, facials, healthy cooking class, American Cancer Society Look Good Feel Better make-up & wigs, and support from fellow cancer patients.
