One of our favorite and most magical escapes has always been the Ojai Valley Inn. Only 80 miles north of Los Angeles, it’s the perfect getaway and your own personal wellness retreat. Surrounded by the scenic and serene Topa Topa mountains, you can definitely feel the energy vortex here.
The Inn is Ojai’s crown jewel. You have the wondrous views, the allure of simple, natural beauty, the famous “Pink Moment” sunsets, the 31,000 square foot luxury spa, championship golf course, complimentary Linus bicycles, three pools, several different restaurants and bars, yoga, meditation and art classes.
It’s all nestled in a tiny town called Ojai, known for its laid-back, bohemian vibe and spiritual pursuits. Ojai is a place you go to replenish, reenergize and perhaps even reinvent yourself. Read my Ojai Getaway Guide here.
And for the pooches — the Ojai Valley Inn is truly doggie heaven. They can happily explore the 220 acres of beautiful vistas and even chase a bunny or two. Plus, the staff loves pets. Water + food bowls and cozy beds are provided in-room.
All in all, it’s a perfect choice for those seeking a dog-friendly stay in Ojai!
The grounds are huge here. If you + your pup are tired of walking, look out for the multiple complimentary shuttle stops. They’ll take you wherever you need to go on the property.
The Oak is one of the main restaurants here with dog-friendly tables. The Parker rolls are complimentary — stay for the rolls. They are divine: the fluffiest buttered bread rolls topped with flakey sea salt, baked fresh daily. On Sundays, they offer a gorgeous breakfast buffet with everything from lobster, crab legs, freshly carved ham, an omelette station, salad bar, charcuterie bar, pastries + more.
Jimmy’s Pub. Get an outdoor table facing the golf course and mountains and enjoy the view. Homemade seasoned potato chips are complimentary and addicting.
Libbey’s Market. Grab a coffee and a couple scoops of the legendary McConnell’s Ice Cream and lay out a blanket on the grass. You can ask for a blanket right next door at Jimmy’s Pub!
