An Ojai Boutique Inn

Escape to our one-of-a-kind Historic Bed & Breakfast, the Lavender Inn built in 1874. We are THE best location of all the accommodations in Ojai, across from galleries, shops, and restaurants. Whether you need a romantic retreat, a peaceful respite, a girlfriends’ getaway, or an outdoor adventure, you can experience our affordable, comfortable luxury. The interior of the Inn is thoughtfully appointed and artfully designed with with a blend of antiques, art and modern but comfy furnishings.  Because of COVID we are not able to make our scrumptious breakfasts, but you can either go across the street to many of our unique restaurants or bring food back to dine on our veranda overlooking our elegant gardens. 

MORE THAN A BED & BREAKFAST, we host stunning Garden Weddings, Cottage Weddings and Elopements.  During COVID we host micro weddings because LOVE IS NOT CANCELLED.  Cooking Classes, our Ojai Culinary School, are offered in our kitchen with selected visiting cooks and chefs on periodic Sundays at 1:00 or private custom classes with prior arrangements. At our onsite day spa, Spa at the Lavender Inn, we offer massages and facials. We are proud to have founded InnCourage, a free 3-day retreat for under-served women undergoing treatment for cancer. (We are now in our 10th year!)

At the Lavender Inn and Spa we realize our Innkeepers play a critical role in shaping our guests’ best possible experience. We assist with celebrations, ranging from Elopements to our simple “Treat Her Right” package if you visit for an Engagement, Anniversary or a Birthday. The innkeepers are happy to assist with special requests or suggest activities to do around Ojai.   The innkeepers strive to make a lasting impression, focusing on comfort and guest service, and that is why we’ve had so many returning guests over the years!

“Love is the Beauty of the Soul. There is a lot of Love here.”

I always feel SAFE when I’m @Home

To anyone looking for a quiet safe retreat during these crazy times, I HIGHLY suggest the oh so charming Lavender Inn. I have been coming for years and had no clue what to expect. I am happy to share that I felt super SAFE and the charm was not lost. The fun part was being to enjoy my means outside in the beautiful garden/back yard surrounded by trees and my beloved Purple Chairs. Not to mention, if you have not visited this charming inn, for those that like a nice long nature walk, simply make a right outside the inn and another right and walk walk walk to beautiful Shelf Road.

Another perk that I appreciated is that after check-out, you can leave your car in the parking lot to enjoy some last minute walking/shopping before you head back to your busy lives. Thanks to Beth and the wonderful staff, I always feel “@HOME. See you very soon.
