This is the Ojai experience you are looking for. A short 10 minute drive from town brings you up the grade, to the Upper Ojai Valley and a distinctly more rural experience.

The space

Big Rock Retreat sits on 1.82 stunning flat acres with views of both the Topa Topa mountain and Santa Paula Peak- that’s two pink moments at once! You will enjoy the views from your sofa and chairs on the rear terrace boarded by a large lawn and huge oaks. Just be prepared to share this space with “the rock”! In addition to oaks, the drought resistant landscape includes fruit trees and a variety of other trees irrigated by an on-site well.

This 2 bedroom, 1 bath (with separate tub & shower) home was totally upgraded in 2006 It sleeps 4 (1king, 2 twins), with an additional 2 on a sofa bed. Central air and heat is available for your use, as is a gas stove for the gourmet cook in you… An open-plan Great Room houses the living room, kitchen and dining areas.
At the entrance of the country road is a neighborhood market, so supplies are close at hand. The 2 minute drive up the road shared by the other homes leads to a trail-head that borders Sisar Creek. So be prepared for a hike and slip into the sparkling natural rock pools of the creek along the way!

At night the stars and the hoots of the owls will lull you to sleep, and the rising sun over the mountains in the morning will confirm that you’ve made the right choice by choosing Big Rock Retreat for a truly unique experience.

We loved our family stay at Big Rock. A perfect peaceful retreat- complete with mountain view & souring eagle. The house is perfectly appointed and very clean, nice & cool on hot days. Location is further out of Ojai town than we expected (more like 15min drive), but it is a spectacular drive. We were traveling with 1 & 3.5yo kids and space worked very well, particularly the large garden to run around in. We would come again...if we didn't live so far away!

Big Rock Retreat is everything it's billed as! We were two couples and three two-year olds. The home is fully equipped with everything you'd need for cooking and relaxing. The neighborhood is very peaceful, and the landscaping around the home is beautiful. We stayed for three days, and by day two we'd wished we had booked a longer trip! It's the perfect place to just simply relax...

Big Rock Retreat was perfect for our needs. We were attending a weekend gathering within walking distance of the house, so it could not have been better. The house was as advertised - - clean, updated, quiet, comfortable beds and with everything one might need. Check-in and out was a breeze. I didn't meet Kim personally, but she was responsive prior to our arrival. We only had one regret - - that we didn't spend more time on the deck appreciating the fabulous view and atmosphere. Highly recommend.

"Perfect" "amazing" "just right" "beautiful" are just some of the things my sisters and I said while staying at the big rock retreat. We didn't want to leave! We really enjoyed our stay and hope we can make it an annual sisters weekend destination. Thank you so much Kim for providing us with a perfect location to unwind and reconnect.
