My daughter was recently married at the Lavender Inn and thanks to the wonderful staff, beautiful and comfortable accommodations, it was a wedding to remember! We booked the wedding venue for the rehearsal, wedding and reception. The wedding venue is located in a beautifully landscaped, enclosed yard with water features, trees, flowers and shrubs. You would never know you are...

Lavender Inn is one of the nicest places I ever stayed. The calm grounded atmosphere, the beauty of the land, the outstanding breakfast (Vanessa is a 5 star chef!), the afternoon wine and cheese buffet ... it is just a dream come true. The rooms are lovely, calm and I slept like a baby. It is my second stay at...

We spent 3 nights at the Lavendar Inn and loved it. It's in an excellent location - 1 block off of the main drag - and within walking distance of good restaurants, art galleries and wine bars. The Inn itself is very charming - a beautiful old home with a wide staircase, comfortable living room, and a very roomy deck...

We spent a few days at Lavendar Inn for our anniversay and it was absolutely beautiful!! Our room was lovely, and we completely adored sitting out in the wicker chairs on our little balcony over looking the gardens...with our coffee in the mornings and a glass of wine in the early evenings. The breakfasts and the evening appetizers that Vanessa...

Frequenting the Lavender Inn for several years now, it has become one of my most cherished places to stay. The staff are wonderful and they take care to continually make improvements on the building and the quality of food (like more organic, local food!). They are also working towards becoming a more green business (changing to non-chemical and eco friendly...

Lavender Inn: We selected the Lavender Inn after reading very good reviews. At our destination we found the Lavender Inn to be unsatisfactory. The room was very small and dingy, paint chipping off the walls, plus other issues to numerous to mention. The bathroom also had issues, not one place to store hygiene products. Flushing the toilet at night would...

Had an absolute blast staying at the Lavender Inn! The B&B is just beautiful and everything you need for a romantic getaway. We stayed in the cottage and it was so wonderful. We had our own private garden where we had wine & cheese & crackers. Vanessa was so sweet and made the best organic locally grown healthy breakfast. There...

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!!!

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. Lavender Inn is More Than a Bed & Breakfast! ... more   less
