Our Front porch and garden is a perfect place to lay back on chaise, read a book, people watch and enjoy the soothing sound of the fountain. It’s a great place to hide yourself behind the veil of roses and flowers and still be part of the Ojai activities.
The main garden off of the breakfast veranda has a beautiful, large, green lawn, a pond, a gazebo flanked by vines and flowers, hidden seating areas and a breakfast nook. It’s perfect for so many activities like crocket, reading, enjoying your home cooked breakfast, having a picnic, lounging, meditating, inviting friends to enjoy tea or simply kicking back and enjoying the view of the mountains. We’ve had so many great events in this garden, including weddings, yoga sessions, Women’s Socials, Tuscan dinners, family reunions, outdoor cooking classes, to name a few. This year the garden is flourishing with beautiful flowers, tall trees and hundreds of frogs in the pond.
You’ll often get a taste of our organic herbs & vegetables from our Herb & Vegetable Garden. Depending on what we’re serving for Breakfast or Wine & Cheese, you might sample fresh picked Basil, parsley, Dill, Sage, Oregano, Rosemary, Kale, Strawberries, Squash, Tomatoes and so much more. We’re fortunate to have this great Ojai weather and be able to grow food and share it, year round.
If you’re staying in the Provence Cottage, you’ll get to enjoy your own private garden with beautiful flowers, a fountain, lounge chairs and a breakfast table, all shaded by our grand Mulberry tree. It’s the perfect garden for peace, quiet, & privacy. If you don’t need a garden of your own but would enjoy having views of the gardens and the mountains, you might enjoy staying in the Garden View Room or Lavender Garden Room with private terraces or the Tree House Room with 180 degree view of the gardens and mountains!
If you haven’t seen our gardens, come visit and we’ll be happy to give you a tour! You can enjoy more pictures of our garden in our photo gallery.
