A True Gem A review of The Ojai Retreat
Hello fellow retreaters!
I almost hesitate to write a review so as not to expose this gem of a place to the world but, I need to give credit where credit is due!
A friend and I spent one of the most perfect weekends I have had in years at the Center. We arrived on the landscaped gardens of the property and immediately wanted to take a restful nap - it was that wonderful.
The office let us check-in early (lovely touch), to our fabulous room - the Ojai Suite which was great - comfortable bed with a comfy pull-out couch. The highlight for us was really the private patio where we sat outside with wine and contemplated our futures overlooking a beautiful valley and mountain viewscape. Each guestroom had this feature!
Oh, have I mentioned the breakfast? I was so amazed at the spread they put out for guests - fresh fruit, a beautiful souffle, muffins, yogurt, cereal and all types of beverages. Fantastic! We were able to meet others staying at the retreat center in this great reading room - and made some business contacts - which didn't surprise us a bit.
Really, the place rocks. I was relaxed, enjoyed walking through miles of fabulous trails around the property (complete with woodpeckers, goldfinches, coyotes (heard them in the distance) and hawks.
So, in a few words, a gem...
