About the property

3 bedroom, one bath cabin in Ojai's East End

Our cozy and rustic cabin is the perfect base for your exploration of Ojai and the surrounding area. Built in the late 1930s as part of an East End religious retreat, the quirky neighborhood is peaceful and serene. It has three snug bedrooms, two with queen-sized beds, and one with a built-in bunk bed plus a twin--perfect for one or even two families, or two couples traveling together. There is one bathroom with a shower for your friendly group, and while it is small, there is everything you need for a comfortable stay.

The location is really what sets our place apart. While not solitary, our neighbors are situated so that everyone has privacy and elbow room, and the peace and quiet is typically respected by all. We are within walking distance of both the Thacher school and the Krishnamurti foundation, as well as the Horn Canyon trail head--no need to climb in to your car for an outstanding hike.

This is our family's retreat, but we would like to occasionally share it with folks who will respect and enjoy the surroundings.

About Kathleen Barth

I have been visiting Ojai since childhood, and have lived here sporadically since 1988. My husband and I met at UC Santa Barbara, were married in Ojai, and lived here as newlyweds. We currently live in Riverside, CA, but frequent the valley for relaxation and rejuvenation.

Kathleen Barth purchased this cabin in 1974

Why Kathleen Barth chose Ojai

My parents purchased this property as a family retreat and potential retirement spot. My husband and I now own it and love sharing with visitors!

What makes this cabin unique

We love the rural feel of this area, and also enjoy its proximity to civilization. The hiking and biking are amazing, and the village of Ojai has fun activities year-round: festivals and events, great shopping, and open space. We have easy access to both Lake Casitas and the ocean, as well as a number of attractions along the coast. Most of all, we enjoy the quiet of hanging out here in the East End.

What’s charming little getaway cabin.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Ojai, despite the fire damage to the mountain range! The cabin was so cozy, clean and well equipped. All the beds were comfortable and having 3 bedrooms was perfect for our family. Thank you!

Cozy cabin in an idyllic location

  • 4 of 5

Our two families enjoyed the tucked away location in a part of the Ojai hills (East End) that we had never explored. The cabin was well appointed, tidy and warm. We enjoyed morning strolls to the Horn trail. Worth noting that the AC is not central, so if it's a hot one, plan accordingly. Thank you Kathleen and family for having us! We were honored to share your home for the weekend.
