We had a great local hike, while waiting for our room to be ready, spent the day taking in local charms, enjoying the garden and hanging out in our robes on our balcony. Loved the happy hour snacks...

It is difficult to imagine finding peace and tranquility while still being in the heart of town but that is what you get at the Lavender Inn. Their garden, with wonderful water features, is lovely for both breakfast and cocktail "tapas" hour. In fact this is one of the best B&B breakfasts we have had. Vanessa et al are most...

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.
