The Ojai Valley Inn & Spa
Ojai Valley, California


Ojai Valley Inn

Between syndicating the show, publishing this magazine and running for president, Max and I were in desperate need of another break from L.A., so we drove up the coast to the Ojai Valley Inn & Spa.

Ojai is, without a doubt, one of the loveliest places on earth, not as spectacular as Tibet, but then the toilets in Ojai are a lot better than those holes in the ground in Tibet. And it was breathtaking enough for film director Frank Capra to choose as the location for his cinematic vision of the mythical Tibetan paradise "Shangri-La" in his 1937 movie Lost Horizon.

One of the local Ojai ranchers swore to us that he sees UFOs beaming off the Topa Topa Mountains on a regular basis. I must say, I don't blame the extraterrestrials for liking the Ojai terrain: Magnificent, sweeping panoramic vistas, perfect weather, and gloriously clean air. Combine that with the friendly efficient staff, fine food and entertainment, superb recreational facilities, gentle relaxing atmosphere, and giant-sized beds of the Ojai Valley Inn, and you've got an earthly Shangri-La, all just 90 minutes from L.A.


Room at the Ojai Inn

When Max and I go back, though, we'll have to make sure we get one of the older guestrooms. They gave us one of the brand new, renovated rooms, which was nice and big with two gigantic beds, but compared to the older, more gracious buildings at the Club, let's just say it lacked character. But Max made up for that by doing his Pee Wee imitations, and we had a fine, relaxing time and were very sorry to have to leave the Elysian Fields of Ojai.
