“We need more places like this!”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

Travelling with two boys 11 & 13 years - this was the only possibility of peace on our trip! I love the silence requirement which is super easy with the most beautiful view ever and peaceful pond. I would do this in every city we visit if it was available.

“walk and contemplate or attend concerts”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

Attended concerts in early morning as part of Ojai Festival: quiet, serene, views, resonant acoustics in meeting room, pleasant outdoor space as well. Patio for continental breakfast and many quiet stopping places for sitting and meditating.

“Good picnic spot”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

This is a great little hideaway. We were looking for a good outdoor picnic spot with a view that was convenient. This place fit the bill. The only negative is it was very restrictive in some ways. I felt as if I should be very quiet, and contemplative, but we were not in that mood. Well, take it or leave it.
