This wonderful little resort nestled in the Ojai Valley is truly unique. It is quieter than any place you'll ever go and the staff is super nice. The rooms are sparse but the beds and location make it a must see. Don't come here to drink wine, stay up late or be noisy. This is a respite for all of...

The Pepper Tree Retreat in Ojai is the former home of philosopher Krishnamurti. Ojai is a very special, small town located just south of Santa Barbara and just North of Ventura. Even if you just visit Santa Barbara, Ojai is a must see while you visit S.B., lots of unique artistry shopping, organic restaurants (try the Farmer and the Cook),...

We have been here twice already in the last year and absolutely love it. It is wonderful to be able to live in such a peaceful environment with great service and locality. The whole process is very easy and we will be doing this trip again soon. The library is amazing and the garden makes for a good reading spot....

My fiance and I stayed at Pepper Tree last summer in the Stravinsky suite. We felt like we were stepping back in time and were honored to learn that physicist David Bohm had also stayed in that particular suite when he had visited Pine cottage years before. The suite itself was refreshingly cool and filled with tons of books for...

I am writing a review of Peppertree retreat not based on its philosophical background or my sentiments towards the founder (which is very positive), but rather as compared to other places I've stayed during my extensive travels -- I care a lot about how well a place is managed as much as how clean and quiet it is. Management sets...

Stayed In The Salk Room In The Annex: Nice room at a fair price. Friendly staff and decent breakfast. Cool to think that my wife and I stayed in the same room as Jonas Salk. The grounds were fun to walk and filled with Orange Groves and other great landscape features.

My daughter and I spend a week at Pepper Tree Retreat recently. The nature, fruit trees, the library, the sweet room, and the lovely people, made it one of the best of our many outings. Great for quiet reflection time, and walks in nature. We love our yoga sessions with Francesca. All the rooms that we viewed were lovely, each...

The retreat is a very relaxing and meditative place. Located in the beautiful Ojai valley, the views are magnificent. The staff and people running the retreat are fabulous as is the morning breakfast. I felt renewed, spiritually, physically, and mentally. Michelle is a great hostess, she will make you feel at home. Keep in mind, this is a retreat, not...

I stayed here for 5 days while taking a workshop in Ojai. Michelle is the best host ever, and all the staff I met were superb. The property itself is tranquil and still and the general location beautiful. I would definitely return. Please keep in mind that Pepper Tree isn't for everyone. If you want hub-bub and frenzy, this wouldn't...
