Check out "world-famous" Deer Lodge, 2261 Maricopa Hwy. (tel. 805/646-4256; www.ojaideerlodge.net), the latest incarnation of Ojai's favorite hippie-biker hangout on Hwy. 33, a few minutes north of Ojai. In the valley's gorgeous foothills, the building dates back to the Depression, when it served as a country store with bait and hunting supplies for local sportsmen, but new owners have been busy sprucing up the place and expanding to include a live stage in the bar, enclosed outdoor dining, and a hearty lodge menu with enough contemporary touches to bring in an upscale yet adventuresome clientele.
