Hotel at a Glance: Acacia Mansion

As soon as you enter Acacia Mansion, you might feel like you've been transported to another time. The entrance is decked out with stained-glass windows and alabaster floors, and period decor fills the living room, along with the tinkling sounds of an antique player piano. The trappings reflect this restored 1920s Spanish mansion's rich history, which helped it secure a spot as one of Ventura County's Cultural Heritage landmarks.

  • Complimentary beer or wine tasting at nearby Ojai Beverage Company
  • Unwind for an hour with a horseback ride or massage (your choice is included with this getaway).
  • Individually decorated suites feature Tempur-Pedic mattresses and period headboards. Some also have sheer canopies and private balconies with views of the gardens.
  • Old-fashioned saloon decorated with a mounted deer's head, wood paneling, and a bar supported by repurposed barrels
  • Outdoor pool with a waterfall surrounded by rocks and tropical foliage
  • Pull up a tree stump to warm up by one of the outdoor fire pits.

Ojai, California: Artsy Small Town in Peaceful Mountain Valley

In Ojai at dusk, the light from the setting sun reflects off of the Topa Topa Mountains in such a way that the face of the mountains starts to glow with a distinctive rouge color. Locals call it the "pink moment," and Ojai is one of the few places in the world where this phenomenon occurs. You can get a nice view of this event at Meditation Mount, a New Age center.

Serenity and simplicity seem to be some of the defining characteristics of Ojai, contrasting it with the sprawling Los Angeles, located about 90 minutes southeast. Ojai has just a handful of traffic lights and some well-kept bridle paths. The city also used to be home to the peaceful Chumash tribe, who believed that the land's east-west configuration gave it magical powers. Spiritual traditions still linger; today, the town features a number of sites, spas, and shops dedicated to holistic healing and meditation.

Many restaurants in Ojai rely on local farms to source their food; the produce grown in town is well-regarded enough that residents of neighboring towns have been known to travel to Ojai on Sunday mornings for the weekly farmers' market.

There's also a strong artistic presence in town, due in no small part to former resident Beatrice Wood, a renowned sculptor. She worked until her death at age 105. You’re likely to stumble upon the works of local artists hanging on the walls in the area's restaurants and shops, and many artists open up their studios to outside visitors.

There were so many great things about Acacia Mansion. One top one was the owner, Christina. Very genuine and passionate. We had great food, great conversation, the grounds and room were amazing. Loved the saloon, too!
Rose R. · February 15, 2014
I felt very comfortable there, as if I was in my own home, and had a live-in chef and housekeepers taking care of everything. The location is great, the room was very comfortable.
