The Farmhouse at Ojai Valley Inn is a new destination for unique culinary experiences and indoor/outdoor events.

Ojai Valley Inn recently debuted a show-stopping, $20 million multi-use epicurean and event center, The Farmhouse at Ojai Valley Inn. Drawing inspiration from the magical surroundings of Ojai, architect Howard Backen with Backen Gillam Kroeger incorporated a natural aesthetic to the 30,000 square-foot culinary and event center.

Set on 220 verdant acres against the stunning backdrop of the Topa Topa Mountain Range, The Farmhouse at Ojai Valley Inn takes form as a series of natural indoor-outdoor spaces, each with a unique personality that flows seamlessly into the next. The center is designed to connect world-class food culture with indoor/outdoor events.
