My mother and I came back to the Lavender Inn. We simply LOVE staying here. When we walked into the welcome office, The Innkeeper gave us each a warm hug and said "welcome home". What more can I say? The wine and cheese and figs and baquette were a perfect end to a warm and friendly day. The Frittata served the next morning was absolutely divine. AND...I just read that the owner, Kathy Hartley, was just named "Philanthropist of the year". That does not surprise me. We met her at the Inn and she is as charming and down to earth as the environment she created. Next time you are anywhere near Ojai...go in and check out this amazing historical landmark...and remember...bring your mom. She deserves to be treated like a queen.
- 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 or outdoor adventure getaway, Girls Night Inn, or a quiet retreat. The gardens are absolutely stunning with mature oaks, 7 fountains, a waterfall into a petite pond, and colorful flowers for our guests to relax in or for a memorable setting for GARDEN WEDDINGS. The interior is tastefully decorated with an array of art and antiques but with a subtle contemporary twist. Both BREAKFASTS and HAPPY HOUR with appetizers, wine, and local craft beer on tap 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. We offer cooking classes in our kitchen, OJAI CULINARY SCHOOL. This is our 10th year of InnCourage, our CANCER WELLNESS RETREAT, free to underserved women undergoing treatment for cancer. ... more less
