About the property

Located in Ojai's East End, Pine Tree Cottage is the quintessential retreat, perfect for romantic getaways or as a space to contemplate the final chapters of your novel. Whether you wish to hike or mountain bike up Horn Canyon, visit the Thacher or Ojai Valley Schools, or spend some time at Meditation Mount or the Krishnamurti library, this location offers much for the nourishment of your soul. Ojai itself beckons from here as well, with its festivals and fun, shopping and dining experiences. Lake Casitas, Ventura and Santa Barbara are also nearby, awaiting your exploration.

Pine Tree cottage, at a cozy 450 square feet, has one bedroom with a queen-sized bed, a bathroom with a shower, and a meal preparation-ready kitchen. The living room sofa converts to a twin bed, perfect for a child or third guest. A wooden deck out back is a comfortable place to watch the quail in the morning, or listen to the owls in the evening, and the table and chairs outside the kitchen door provides for a wonderful al fresco dining spot.

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 cottage in 1974

Why Kathleen Barth chose Central Coast

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 cottage 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 a lovely cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Tucked into a bucolic setting, this cottage made the perfect getaway from the madness of Los Angeles. We had come up for the Ojai Storytelling Festival, and our weekend abode could not have been more perfect. 'Peace and Quiet' could take a lesson from our cottage.

Basic, but charming.

  • 3 of 5

We had a lovely stay and our needs were met. The accommodations are pretty basic so if you're looking for upscale, this is not for you. It's in a very wooded area so spider webs were common. Our dog loved it. With fees, we paid $203.50 per night. For this price, we would probably stay somewhere else next time.

Such a peaceful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Ojai for a training at the Krishnamurti Foundation. The cabin is conveniently located near it. And also just about a 10 minute drive into town. It is sweet, private and quiet. Such a peaceful place to stay!

I Loved This Place!

  • 4 of 5

When I first saw pictures online I thought it would be smaller than it was, but it worked great for 2 people and would probably work out well for 3 or 2 and 2 small kids. The kitchen was very clean, we had everything we needed for cooking and were able to eat in for 3 of our meals during our 2-day stay. Everything seemed to be pretty new and upgraded. The location was quiet and nestled away from town in the woods near some good hiking. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars was we had to deal with a few spider webs when we first arrived, once we got past that - we were all set. I would love to stay here again in the future.
