“An oasis for the mind”

Pepper Tree Retreat is the former guest house of noted philosopher J. Krishnamurti, who lived at nearby Pine Cottage (now the Krishnamurti Library) from 1922 to 1986. During his 64 years in Ojai, Krishnamurti welcomed thousands of visitors from around the world who were challenged by his penetrating inquiries into the fundamental questions of life. These included such 20th Century luminaries as Annie Besant, Aldous Huxley, John Barrymore, Greta Garbo, David Bohm, Dr. Jonas Salk, D.H. Lawrence, Jackson Pollack, Igor Stravinsky, The Beatles, and many others. Today, the Krishnamurti Foundation of America (KFA) continues to operate the guest house as a retreat, for anyone wanting to get away, enjoy the beauty of the Ojai Valley, and reflect on life. The guest rooms are named after the Retreat's historic visitors, some of whom stayed in the rooms that are named for them. The original two buildings on the property, Pine Cottage and the guest house, have been designated historic structures by the Ventura County Historic Preservation Commission. These two buildings were constructed in 1895 and 1910 respectively, but gained historic significance as the home and teaching center for Krishnamurti.
