It always takes me so much time to write these posts. So hard to recap such an amazing time. I don’t want to miss anything. But, it’s impossible. Unless you were there, you really just can’t understand. Unless your body was aching. Unless you were in desperate need of a shower. Unless your socks were full of dirt. Unless your belly hurt from laughing so fucking hard the night before. Unless your bond with 3 of your best gals grew a mile. Unless you just backpacked the Sespe Wilderness overnight, there is NO way possible I can explain how bad ass, strong, empowered, brave and relieved we all felt in this photo above. We were DONE! We survived.
We had our eye on the prize. We were headed for a night stay at the Ojai Valley Inn.
Our reward to ourselves.
Probably the most brilliant idea we’d actually ever come up with. I mean, the hike was for sure coolest part #2. Ojai Valley Inn…coolest part #1.
That’s why I saved the best for last. And I can 100% guarantee that we would all have to agree.
This place is like the best kept secret. A little gem in the heart of Ojai. A place I’d read about. Shit let’s be real, the Beverly Hills Housewives had 2 episodes taped here. Remember that? That’s how I really heard of it. Oh and remember Brothers & Sisters? That show took place in Ojai too.
Here are a few photos I stole off their website to give you a better idea of what I’m talking about……
Ojai Valley Inn is by far the most gorgeous resort I’ve ever visited.
The luxurious amenities.
Best in class customer service. You guys, customer service is everything to me and I have never seen anything like it here. Friendly. Uber accommodating.
You really need to stay here. Trust me. I can guarantee you that you will have the most wonderful time.
The drive inn
You would have thought we were moving in. Nahhh, just a 24 hour stay 🙂
Our bell boy wan’t even slightly phased. He loaded up every bag and we leisurely followed him to our room.
The view from our patio wasn’t too bad either.
and a bed. After sleeping on the ground, this looked damn good!
The Pool(s) //
Is this heaven?
Yes, it is!
There is a pool to suit whatever your needs. Lap pools. Adult pools. Pool with bars. Family pools. Need I say more?
You could find me right here.
We just so happened to arrive at the pool for Happy Hour. My most favorite hour of the day. But, you already knew that!
Nicole + her Lavender Lemonade ♥
It didn’t just look pretty either.
The Spa //
Nicole + I slipped away to the Spa.
We both gave them an A+
A 50 minute relaxation massage after a backpacking trip. Yessss please.
When the masseuse asked me which “spots” to focus on…..
And she straight up killed it. Nicole would agree!!
