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 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 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.

The Magic Cabin

  • 5 of 5

What a magical, peaceful place for us. My husband and I, come here again and again. It is our very favorite VRBO.

Nestled on a quiet road....the stars are so bright on the East end of peaceful. Wonderful walking roads everywhere and hiking right outside your door.

You are a short drive into Ojai..just minutes away to restaurants and shops in the middle of town....But you get to come back to your peaceful abode.

Clean and happy and a great kitchen. A sweet, little patio to sit out on, in the mornings with your coffee or for lunch in the sunshine or for dinner, under the stars.

Kathleen, the Owner is the best and she is quick to respond if you need anything and has been an absolute pleasure to rent from.

A perfect Ojai getaway!

Great stay at Pine Tree

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this cute little cabin. It's not fancy, but IS comfortable. Very quiet which is what we were looking for. We stayed just after the Thomas fire and the owner was in touch with us to answer questions etc. I had the best sleep ever while at Pine Tree. I'm not sure if it was being away from the city and so many electronics but I literally drifted off to sleep each night by the light of the cozy antique stove. We loved sitting outside at night and relaxing under the stars. So much brighter outside of the city, we looked forward to this at the End of every day. The cabin was clean and well cared for. I intended to do some baking for the holiday but never got around to it. Everything seemed to work well. The only slight issue was the lack of shower pressure. I'm not sure if changing out the shower head would help. It did appear to have accumulated mineral deposits but there was plenty of hot water. We just took our time and didn't let it bother is. If you are looking for a cozy, quiet place to get a great nights sleep, look no further. We would definitely return!
