Discover a special place on the California coastline, the legendary Pierpont Inn - a member of The Historic Hotels of America. The classic 1910 California Inn is just an hour from the heart of Los Angeles, in quaint and historic Ventura. Since 1999, the Inn has been fully renovated with meticulous attention being paid to maintaining the Inn's rich historical traditions. Since Mattie Vickers Gleichmann and her husband Gus acquired the Inn in 1928, the Pierpont Inn has hosted guests with a tradition of signature family style service admired by all. From fresh cut flowers in the lobby to magnificent Channel Island sunset views to a booking for tennis at the adjoining Pierpont Racquet Club, we pamper and indulge our guests. Adventures and delightful surprises mark your visit to the Inn by the Sea. The Pierpont Inn offers you the very best in California relaxed style. From Austen's, our intimate restaurant overlooking the magnificent Ventura coastline, to our spacious accommodations and secluded grounds, this historic hotel stands as a modern tribute to a rich and colorful past. At the Inn we are proud to carry on the Vickers Family legacy - one based on a lifelong dedication to excellence. Four generations of ownership have taught us a great deal about the art of hospitality. We are delighted to share it with you.
