The Lavender Inn
Ranked #4 of 9 Ojai B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 May 2014

We travel with our pet and The Lavender Inn is pet friendly. I also wanted to be close to the town center. The location couldn't be better. Everything is in walking distance. The staff is professional but laid back. They were so relaxed about our pet. There's a large enclosed yard area and we were allowed to leave our pet off leash. She is well behaved and we made sure she didn't bother anyone. And the breakfasts were amazing. The Inn is beautiful and well maintained. I would absolutely stay here again.

Room Tip: Only one pet friendly room and we loved it.

From the moment you arrive through your departure, the Inn keepers both Kathy and Beth along with all the staff are at the ready to provide impecible service and hospitality. The evening wine and cheese selections are outstanding, as is the breakfast which on this occasion was created by Vanessa and will take you through the day. The Inn, situated right in the heart of the city calls for browsing the many unique shops and galleries. We were treated to a private olive oil and balsamac vinegar tasting at the Regalo Estate which was out of this world. Truly, one of the top B&B's I have ever stayed at and there have been many. One of my friends even uncovered the mattress in her room to find the maker and plans to replace hers at home! You will sleep well in comfort and serenity. Bravo to the Lavender Inn too for all that they do in making a difference the community of Ojai.

Room Tip: All the accomodations are superior. Of course the private cottage is exceptional!

We throughly enjoyed our 2 day visit at the Inn. It has a lovely garden and such charming sitting areas scattered throughout the property. Our favorite spot was the 2 person cozy lounger on the front porch where we enjoyed a visit from a friendly cat, were warmed by the morning sun while listening to the music from the Farmer's Market. It was heaven! The location is superb. We walked to the Farmer's Market on Sunday, strolled through Libby Park and browsed the many unique shops across the street. We really enjoyed our room which was nicely decorated and very clean. The breakfast was was delicious and had everything we needed to start our day and the staff could not be any more accomadating. This Inn is a gem!

Room Tip: The Inn does not have a swimming pool or fitness center but this rating system does not allow me to...

We recently enjoyed a 9 night Lavender Inn experience that was just what was needed. The cottage is very private complete with private garden. I was involved in a yoga training in Ojai, but husband found the area & people very welcoming. Judy the owner & staff Diana, Beth, Vanessa & Linda in particular were super friendly & made sure we were comfortable. We loved the private entrance too since I was coming & going @ different hours! We hope to return in the fall. Thank you!

My mom and i always use to celebrate our bdays together in ojai at another place in town we decided to go to the Lavender Inn, what a great place to stay the rooms are all so nicely decorated with attention to every detail imaginable! they serve awesome wines and happi hour snacks , not to mention the beautiful breakfast served every morning. they have great spa services massage , facials etc: just such a warm charming cozy place. Nestled among beautiful native plants with the topatopas as the backdrop to the secluded Inn, it's beauty is breathtaking. A great spot also for events of all kinds not to mention a beautiful place to host a wedding.
The staff are all so friendly and helpful and make your stay even more enjoyable. We cant wait to go back and even if you live close by you feel like you are far away in a secluded serenity.

Best B&B ever!

Room Tip: all the rooms are great you could not ever be disappointed with any room

We spent only one night in the treehouse .... nevertheless we were overwhelmed of the colors, details, thoughtfulness, breakfast, caring atmosphere, garden & the cat ;)

Good and good to know such lovely places exist.

PS: And BIG thanks for sending my wedding ring over to Germany.

I had so much fun at the Lavender Inn in Ojai, Ca. You are out of the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The area is just so serene. The Inn has the most beautiful back yard for meditating or just a nice wine that they have on premises. The rooms were very comfy and clean with there own bath. At night you can hear the frogs talking to each other. The staff was so attentive and knowledgeable of the area. The Inn is just a half a block from stores and beautiful scenery. It was truly a great experience. I cant wait till I can go again.
