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
We live in other cabins on the property.
Robert or Anna purchased this cottage in 1978
Our family compound and personal retreat
Ojala is on the edge of Ojai, on the edge of the river bank, on the edge of the Los Padres Forest wilderness, and on the edge of civilization.
Dear Anna & Robert
We are leaving today, regretfully, but with plans to return. This is the perfect weekend vacation for us; we will be back. Listening to the river flowing gladdens my heart; watching the light on the mountains through the upper windows at dusk is a treat beyond compare.
Thankyou for for the lovely bed, beautiful flowers, delightful pottery and all the quaint and intimate touches which make each visitor feel especially loved and prepared for, like precious invited guests.
We look forward to returning soon-
Debby & Tim

We recently spent three nights at the Love Shack in beautiful Ojai. The property is only a few miles outside of town, yet easily accessible for any needs. Our tiny cabin sat directly above a beautiful stream of alternating ponds and rapids. The loudest noises were from the water during the day and the frogs in the evenng. It was so peaceful! We drove a few miles further north and hike in Matilija Canyon, another beautiful area to explore. We enjoyed wine tasting at Old Creek Winery, located just a few miles to the south. We enjoyed great meals at Suzanne's and Azu Restaurants. We enjoyed a restful, yet active half-week.
The cabin itself is very retro, but the queen bed is quite comfortable. The bathroom is tiny, but doable. Our favorite feature was the old fashion heating stove in the living room. The property itself feels like it is far away, even though it is definitely not. We definitely hope to return again!
Just a quick note to echo what many others have said - the lil' place is a fantastic retreat. Can't recommend it enough. Perfect for unwinding and getting away
So close (to SoCal Westside) and yet a magical refuge. We are so thankful to have spent two nights on this delightful property. A full time creek (headwaters of the Ventura River) babbles just below the Love Shack. Wood stove and campfire pit laid out for use upon arrival... Just enough on property walking to keep the blood flowing. It was the panacea we needed. It qualifies as a very tiny home, you might bump your elbows in the bathroom but we loved it. Good reading lamps in bedroom and great DVD about icon Beatrice Woods available, plus a couple of handfuls of other movies. Weak WiFi but we did not care! You can send and receive texts no problem. Two shakes of a lambs tail and we were mellow and creatively inspired. Water from the tap is from their own spring! Must return in every season. Thank you to this family that resides here and runs the rental.
I spent a week at "The Shack". Perfect for getting away from it all. Cozy, quiet and quaint. Great for 1 or 2 people. The stream right outside the door was awesome to listen to, whether sitting on the screened porch with a coffee in the AM or falling asleep at night. Great hiking in the area and a excellent patch of grass in the sun for late morning yoga. Robert and Anna are fantastic people and made sure everything was taken care of!!
We went to The Love Shack for some R&R and birthday day celebration. It exceeded our wildest dreams. Nestled next to a babbling brook (river when rainy) it is wonderfully taken care of and charmingly equipped. We felt transported to a very rustic but comfortable and lush place. The cabin is simple with a burner stove and all the utensils you need. Great bedroom where you can hear the water rushing over the rocks at night and orange trees dotting the property. The enormous natural spring filled swimming pool was such a relief to jump into during the hot part of the day. Incredible hikes just up the road as well as swimming holes. Town of Ojai is just 10 min away so you get the best of both the country living and charming shops and restaurants nearby. We are coming back here for sure!
Thinking of getting away for the weekend--this is the perfect place! Relaxing, quiet, cozy, and simple living. Very peaceful property. The stream running by the cabin is the best part. Robert and Anna were very welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed.
