Escape to Upper Ojai Cottage, a cheerful, modern, solar-powered 900 square foot guest house in the hills above Ojai, CA!
If you're a writer, a mountain biker, an overworked couple yearning to break free from the gridlock, this is the place for you. Think: economical hipster getaway, not chintzy, ornate B&B.
Greet the mountain morning from your cozy California King featherbed. Enjoy the birdcalls as you sip coffee on the shady patio. Rent a mountain bike in Ojai and ride out our gate straight into the backcountry of the Los Padres National Forest. Pack a picnic and head up to a secret swimming hole at Sisar Creek. Or hide out in solitude and finish your novel while gazing out at the Matilija Poppies and distant Santa Paula Peak.
And at night, you will not believe the number of stars!
Prepare a gourmet meal in the fully outfitted Retro kitchen with groovy red appliances, or zip down the hill to Ojai for great food and charming little shops. Relax in front of the large flat screen TV with a DVD from our extensive collection. Drive 30 minutes to the world-famous Rincon break. (Or rent a foam top and head out to Mondo's - we can recommend good surf instructors.)
We have lived here a long time and know a lot about the backcountry and about the local arts. We are happy to make restaurant recommendations or give you the inside scoop on local events like the Ojai Music Festival and the Tennis Tournament.
FYI - like everyone in the country, we have dogs. That's just a heads up in case you don't like very - perhaps too - friendly canines. However, we are not able to accommodate additional critters, so let ours be your surrogate pets while you're here!

I'm a singer-songwriter and my husband is an attorney and longtime volunteer with Upper Ojai Search and Rescue. We bought this place in 1991 when it was a run-down shack with washing machines and old engine blocks in the yard, and have developed it into the Craftsman home we and our two daughters love today.
Many of our musician friends have stopped over in the guest house over the years, as we host evenings of music in our stone BBQ area in the warmer months. We have just recently renovated the cottage into the beautiful vacation rental we offer today.
The solitude and proximity to Ojai make the Sisar Creek Cottage a perfect getaway!
We live here and know the area well! Anything you need to know to make your Ojai experience complete - the best restaurants (and the most overrated), great places to park on a festival weekend, how long it really takes to hike the Gridley trail - we can help.
