The Destination
Referred to as the "Shangri-La of Southern California," the Ojai Valley has been quietly attracting visitors to its slice of paradise for decades. Situated between majestic mountain peaks just 90-miles northwest of Los Angeles, this scenic hideaway hosts low-key travelers, creative artists, health gurus, and spiritual seekers who soak up its breathtaking views, its delicious abundance of locally grown organic foods, and some of the most upscale spas found in the Ventura Valley. With a charming downtown village with no chain stores in sight and the smell of the Pacific coast hanging in the air, this city has a natural rhythm to everyday life that is simply sublime.

The Digs
Ojai's Acacia Mansion is a 1920s Spanish-style B&B with marble floors, a private orchard, a bamboo-enveloped hot tub—even a live piano player. At this atmospheric hideaway, a horseback adventure in the morning and fine wine in the afternoon is just another day in the life. Stained glass windows, a dramatic wide-U staircase, and one-bedroom suites with private balconies are just a few of the property's highlights.

Amid the fragrant orange orchard, the restored 1929 landmark is an architectural display of grandeur, complete with its own natural dipping pool and waterfall. Fad diets stop at the heavy Mission-style front door. Savor fresh-squeezed orange juice and a veggie frittata (made from eggs produced by the mansion's resident hens) during the included homemade breakfast.

The Diversions
Ride through acres of orange groves when you opt for a horseback ride for two from Ojai Valley Trail Riding Company. If equestrian sports aren't your speed, you can choose a pair of hour-long massages inside the mansion. Later, you'll raise your glass during a wine or beer tasting at Ojai Beverage Company. With more than 20 beers on tap, you can audition your favorites then stick around for lunch. Try the juicy Cabernet burger with a basket of truffle fries.

  • "The grounds are well-kept, maintaining the integrity and authenticity of this 1920's mansion. The rooms are beautifully furnished, true to the era. A definite jewel in this fresh, country setting!"
