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.
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
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!
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.
We had a very enjoyable stay at your cute cottage. It's a great place to relax. Thank You.
The cottage is located on such a beautiful, atmospheric road... it's so secluded + conducive to unwinding. The cottage itself is so humble + cozy without compromising comfort. It was rainy while we were there + the cabin heated up very quickly. Kathleen was a wonderful host-- she was easy to communicate with and made sure all of our needs were met. This is the perfect getaway to forget about time, read, write, go for meditative walks, + appreciate Ojai like a local.
Overall my stay in the cottage was lovely. The only issue was that I had trouble getting the quirky furnace started, but Ashley and her husband quickly came to the rescue. I would recommend this place as a rustic little getaway in Ojai.
Such a wonderfully quiet spot !!! The cottage was perfect for my dog and I. We loved it. Kathleen was a wonderful host. HIGHLY recommend staying here. Truly a magical place !!!
I loved this cabin, it was so cute and comfortable. We happened to be there during a cold snap, getting into the 30's at night, this is a rustic cabin and it was difficult to regulate the temperature, you have an older gas heater, we finely figured out where to set it to keep us warm without over heating, once we figured it out, it was perfect. Quite, beautiful, clean, and well stocked, the only thing I found that needs to be addressed right away is the smoke detector was removed, batteries out, setting on the refrigerator, it needs to be put back up, I will stay here again!!
My wife and I enjoyed immensely our anniversary weekend at the Pine Tree Cottage. Everything we needed was provided and we relaxed, even enjoying the sound of raindrops on the roof one evening. We would suggest to future guests to stop for groceries on the way . . . that way there's no need to leave. We would love to know the history of the immediate area and if it had ties to the nearby retreats.
