Many thanks to all the beautiful community there who make great effort to continue the legacy of such a beautiful setting and history in Ojai. The hiking in the...

My husband was called out of town emergently for work and my mom who was going to be the main caregiver is unwell and my daughter has her own health issues. The lady (Julien?) on the phone heard me out, and...

The Pepper Tree Retreat provides a tranquil atmosphere in a beautiful landscape. The fragrance of orange blossoms and jasmine at this time of the year are intoxicating. The rooms are filled with light and comfortable. Whether you visit to take part in the teachings of J. Krishnamurti or to relax, the Pepper Tree doesn't disappoint.

Wonderful time in Ojai at the Pepper Trea Retreat. Deep immersion in Krishnamurti's interesting life and profound message. Felt in harmony with the world, enjoying the simplicity and spaciousness of the facilities and the beauty of the amazing garden. Great place to read, let time unfold, talk, rest, reconnect. Staff are relaxed and accommodating. Fully recommended!

So far, Spa Cucina has led two yoga retreats to this beautiful property, in fall and in spring, and we're excited to have another planned next summer! The grounds are lovely and tranquil, the rooms well-equipped and comfortable. Continental breakfasts nourished us for our hiking and yoga practice and we enjoyed meditating among the birds on the lawn. Close proximity...

The Lennon Room was beautiful and relaxing with a beautiful bedroom and balcony looking out to the bush. There is a lovely orange grove on the property, meditation facility and garden and gorgeous views of the valley. We absolutely loved our time there, and hope to return again!

My stay at Pepper Tree Retreat couldn’t have been more renewing. Its location in the middle of orange orchards is amazing and it’s so dark and quiet at night...perfect for the kind of deep relaxation I never get in the busy Bay Area! My room in “The Annex” was exceptional...windows on 3 sides and a fantastic view, clean and simply...

I went to Pepper Tree for a yoga retreat weekend. The rooms are simple and like home. I found it warm and very relaxing. You can walk the grounds, short walk to hiking trails, go to Meditation Mount, find horseback riding, orange trees cover the landscape, books available to read plus- Krishnamurti library
