Pepper Tree Retreat

1130 McAndrew Road , Ojai, CA 93024 USA (Show map)


Ojai Valley's Pepper Tree Retreat Offers: Comfortable, quiet guest rooms in a vintage 1910 farmhouse and more recent cottages. All rooms have a private bath, writing desk, wi-fi connectivity, and air conditioning. A large front porch, trellised outdoor dining area, gardens, and lovely views. A vegetarian breakfast buffet is offered each morning. The Pepper Tree retreat is the former home of philosopher J. Krishnamurti. This Krishnamurti retreat offers a quiet setting for those who really want to see, hear, and feel the natural beauty of the Ojai Valley. It is for those who want to leave behind the noise of the world, the crowded life of the city, and the chattering of the mind. For in a quiet setting, with a quiet mind, one awakens a different dimension to awareness, and a whole new world is revealed. Therefore, Pepper Tree Retreat does not provide television, radios, amplified music, or other distractions. The sounds of the retreat are the chirping of crickets, the hooting of an owl, and the wind rustling through the trees.
