Must admit, B&Bs are not my first choice. However I am married so I compromise. This is definitely one of the better ones we have stayed at. Nice rooms, good breakfast and perfect location to see Ojai.

I stayed in the Lavender Room and couldn't have been happier!!! I arrived very stressed on Thursday evening. Got off work later than I expected, but Erin had emailed me that late check-in would be fine which took a lot of the pressure off. The place is absolutely beautiful!!!

We spent two weekend nights at the Lavender Inn half way through a two week stay in Southern California. We had high expectations and were not disappointed. This is a beautiful property both internally and externally and the garden is quite simply very special. We were fortunate to have two mornings where we could take breakfast outside and enjoy the...

The Lavender Inn has a garden filled with colors and textures, a joy to look at and wander in. The Inn is tastefully decorated with beautiful colors and comfortable and well-maintained furniture. They have a covered wooden deck that is perfect for their complimentary wine and cheese or for breakfast time. Their breakfasts are fabulous. We had eggs over sauteed... More

This lovely set of cottages is delightful! The staff made us feel so welcomed from the moment of our arrival.

Loved my stay!!! The Lavendar Inn doesn't just cater to couples, I just turned 50 and came for a great weekend with a gal pal, on a girls weekend. The staff was so friendly, that we felt we made new friends in our short stay. The breakfast was truly old school B&B...not just a 'continental breakfast' with store bought bagels... More

My husband & I celebrated our anniversary at this beautiful B & B. We brought our six month old son with us. The cottage gave us enough privacy that we didn't need to worry about disturbing other guests. We even had our own private patio for sipping champagne and enjoying the perfect Ojai weather.

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 GETAWAGIRLS NIGHT OUT AT THE INN, intimate business workshops, family reunions, or a QUIET RETREAT. The gardens are absolutely stunning with mature oaks, 7 fountains, a petite waterfall into a petite pond, and colorful flowers for our GARDEN WEDDINGS. The interior is tastefully decorated with an array of art and antiques but with a subtle modern twist. Full, GOURMET BREAKFASTS and housemade TAPAS & WINE 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. Look for our COOKING CLASSES in our kitchen, Ojai Culinary School, with visiting chefs. We are proud to have created a 3 day CANCER WELLNESS RETREAT, InnCourage, free to underserved women undergoing treatment for cancer - a full time on-site counselor, massages, facials, healthy cooking class, American Cancer Society Look Good Feel Better make-up & wigs, and support from fellow cancer patients.
