WIN a 2-night Stay at Ojai Valley Inn + Golf, Breakfast + More

The Most Dog Friendly Place On Earth?

Of all the places in the world, I think Weston + Fira’s favorite place is here… Ojai Valley Inn. Around 5-6pm, Weston starts getting antsy, paces around and stares at us begging to go to the Inn. Once we get there, they shoot out, running full-force through the grass and I get the feeling they feel the most free… the most wild (haha) and happiest.

I partnered with Ojai Valley Inn to give one winner a 2-night stay at the hotel, golf for two, a Somadome session (a really cool meditation pod for one at the spa) and breakfast for two!

What are some of the features the hotel offers? Let’s see…

220 sprawling acres to explore… and no weight restrictions for pup-guests.


Making s’mores at the fire pits.


Free Linus bikes to rent…


Get in touch with your creative side at the Artist’s Cottage!


We also made a mini film called Ojai Dreamin’ that I had so much fun making. I think it embodies my experiences in Ojai… also discovered one of my new favorite songs from a band called Valaska – Golden Age.

    • Us and our little Frenchie, would love a family holiday!! I’d imagine our ideal day would start with piggy sniffing all the grass, then maybe some tasty breakfast picnic where, our piglet could sit in the basket and see the sites while we relax and stretch out our LA traffic cramped legs. Then maybe some spa time, and pool lounging before we all cuddle up and wait for the pink moment!

Keeping our paws crossed for this one! ❤️

  68. Wow! I’ve been to Ojai before, but I never knew how beautiful Ojai Valley Inn is. My fiancé wanted to book us a stay there, but I had no idea it is pet friendly! I can’t wait to visit with our furbaby!

    *made sure to answer the question this time!

  73. I most look forward to doing the art experience at the spa resort. I also thought your you tube video was smart, short, sweet, and most importantly made you smile. I love a short walk with my Frenchie Eloise and I look forward to meeting CoCo.

  74. We would love to visit Ojai and relax in this beautiful Inn & Spa! Linus bikes in the morning, massage in the afternoon. Deal? 🙂

  75. Spa, s’mores, bikes and golf!?! How do you pick just one! A weekend getaway with my honey and pup though, that’s the best ☺️

  76. Looks like frenchie paradise! Most excited about the possibility of being at a dog-friendly hotel for a few days (I’m a dog travel virgin) and for the meditation pod (;

  77. Me and my girl @kaiya_the_frenchie can’t wait to have some girl time making some s’mores and riding the Linus bikes around the beautiful property! Maybe even lay be the pool to see what handsome studs are hanging around! Kaiya’s got a perfect pupikini for pool lounging!

  78. We just recently discovered ojai and can’t wait to go back! Would love to relax by the pool, roast some smores at night and bike down to Ventura beach!

  79. Oh boy, what’s not to love… I’d say I’d be most excited for the Artist’s Cottage— a cozy little art studio where I can bring my pup as a model?! Plus the fact that there’s no weight restriction on puppers… I’d love to bring my King Charles, Oscar, and explore the grounds and go on bike rides with him! (Plus, he’s bigger than most King Charles pups, as he’s quite spoiled, if you get me :P)

  80. Leo the Frenchie would love to have his portrait painted at the Artists Cottage! His first portrait was destroyed due to a jealous English Bulldog named Hank :(! Next up we’d do some bike rides and hit the pool. Please choose us!! <3

  81. With an overview this beautifully portrayed, how could any dog lover not want to race there right away? Thanks for showing us a bird’s eye view of your escape to Ojai! While I love every feature you showed, my favorite of the resort would be that each pup gets their name on the door with a dedicated spot to sleep and gourmet pet food! Resorts like Ojai are trailblazers in that they celebrate the importance of fur babies and want to give them five star treatment just like their owners!

  82. We would love to visit the Ojai Valley Inn with @SkippertheFLFrenchie All of the amenities and activities sound furbulous but I think we’d be most excited to hit the links with Skipper and then relax by the pool with some great wine and bacon 🙂

  83. Waffles and Jelly (2 frenchies) can not wait to try all the walking trails and to run around around on the golf course!

  84. Coconut Saint James @coconutsaintjames would be most excited about the five diamond doggie room service! I am a pampered Frenchie!

  86. Easily the most excited about the 220 acres of land for my pup, Finley! Plus, those Linus bikes look so much fun. I wonder if I could actually get Fin to sit in the back while we biked around the area. Would be so fun! Hope we win! We’ve followed all of the accounts + left a comment on your video. <3

  87. I would love to soak up the sun by the pool and relax at the spa! This place has been on my bucket list ever since seeing the videos of Weston and Fira enjoying the property on your Instagram stories!

  88. My frenchie Cleo would absolutely love to adventure around this resort. My boyfriend and I have been on many cool vacations but haven’t gotten to bring along our pup yet. We both are golfers and would love to hit the golf course in the morning and then lounge by the pool with Cleo in the afternoon.

  89. My name is Emily and my pup is Murrow (@murrow_the_frenchie). Ojai does sound like an absolute dream. Murrow has never been to California and this dog friendly haven sounds like the perfect place for us to visit as a family. We’d start our morning with snuggles in what I’m sure are super cozy beds. From bed we’d head to our yoga mat and start with a few downward dogs and some meditation. Murrow loves to play ball so of course we’d hit up the tennis court where it would be ball heaven! We’d drink mimosas by the pool and soak in the sun. My husband absolutely loves to golf so we’d get a round in after our pool time. And of course we’d be starving by then and would enjoy an indulgent meal at one of their fabulous places to grab a bite. And the evening wouldn’t be complete without soaking in the sunset. We hope you’ll pick us!

  90. I would love to come here for a mini babymoon with my husband and our 2 precious fur babies Holly and Chloe! We’d all love to lounge by the pool and enjoy the sun. My 2 girls love to sunbathe!

  91. Recently rescue sweetie frenchie, Mochi from a puppy mill, this sounds like the perfect welcome to the good life vacation. I look forward to the pool and a bike ride with Mochi!

  92. I would love to take our two little 4 month old frenchies, Tokyo and Kona, to explore and take walks on the 220 acres of property. They would absolutely love love love all the land they can roam around in. Would also love to enjoy relaxing by the pool, decompress at the spa, and enjoy a round of golf. Love that Ojai valley inn is pup friendly so we can take them with us without the guilt of leaving them home.

  93. I would love to come here with my mom and my dog Mini! We usually have discomfort bringing Mini along to hotels, but I feel like this will be a perfect place to spend a good time !! It’ll also help to relief stress and spend quality time with my mom and dog.

  94. Eating smores with my new Frenchie Mochi just like Weston and Fira! We adopted her from a tough situation, and I want to share the best things in life with her.

  95. I look forward to making s’mores with Weston & Fira along with our new frenchie, Mochi. We recently rescued her from a bad situation. Would like to show her happiness in life at Ojai Valley Inn.
