Ojai cottage description

The 'Love Shack' is a cozy cottage, rustic and tastefully furnished with the work of local artists. The cabin has many windows with river and canyon views, as well as a wood burning stove and a screened in porch overlooking the stream (a raging river when it rains heavily). Nestled among heritage oaks and sycamores, it is on the grounds of Ojala, an old resort that is now our private retreat

Enjoy the soothing sound of the flowing river water, canyon breezes, fresh clean air and drinking water from our own mountain spring. Wild yet peaceful, Ojala is surrounded by the mountains of the Los Padres National Forest with superb hiking trail heads adjacent to property.

Located only three miles from Ojai, known for its historic spiritual community, music festival and tennis tournament, restaurants and galleries, and for the 'Pink Moment'. We are close to the Sespe Condor Wilderness, Lake Casitas, the Ocean and Santa Barbara.

The Love Shack is an intimate getaway for those who love simple luxury and want to be in a natural setting.
Wood burning stove in the winter.
Pool in the summer.
Screened in porch overlooking the creek, all year long
