Seeking Calm and Cuisine at the Ojai Valley Inn
Despite the brevity — or perhaps because of it — the one-night, short-drive getaway can deliver an ample dose of relaxing escapism, providing a quick respite and recharge without requiring much attention to planning or packing. There’s really no reason that you can’t tackle a spur-of-the-moment one-nighter in whatever you happen to be wearing, which is especially true when absconding to full-service resorts like the Ojai Valley Inn, where fluffy, in-room robes cover whatever attire gaps arise. And for the lucky many whose incomes remained steady during the pandemic as extracurricular expenses evaporated, there’s never been more ability or impetus to splurge a little bit, especially if only for one night.
