Where to Stay

The Ojai Rancho Inn, is a cozy spot with lots of bohemian touches (shibori curtains and smudge sticks) and a pool; essential during the unbearably hot summer months.

For a splurge, check out the recently refreshed Ojai Valley Inn & Spa. The rooms here are luxe and the entire resort is pet-friendly.

Where to Eat

Chief’s Peak (at the Ojai Rancho Motel) is a cozy bar space with a small selection of wine and beer, plus a turntable playing vintage tunes.

Tipple & Ramble is a home shop by day, serving a limited, seasonal menu with live music in the evenings. The patio space is beautiful with cozy couches and tiled tables.

HiHo! Serves up old-fashioned hamburgers, shakes, fries and “sometimes pie” using the best, freshest ingredients like grass-fed beef.
