About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

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

What makes this cottage unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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

Amazing Getaway Close to Home

  • 5 of 5

I'm almost reluctant to write a glowing review for fear that it become so popular I can't rebook. But a good experience deserves to be lauded and this is certainly the case with the Love Shack. The space is perfectly sized for a couple, giving you the chance to stretch out and relax while also not wasting any space at all. The creek adjacent to the house brings a lovely sense of nature into the home and the ceramics throughout the home add a note of memorability. The house was well-stocked with linens and firewood and the hosts are very communicative and leave no question unanswered. This really was one of the easiest vacation rentals ever. The location is just far enough from Ojai to make you feel like you're off the path while close enough to take advantage of restaurants and other sites and attractions--but I'd recommend at least one day on the premises to rest, relax, and maybe cook a meal yourself.

The quiet rustic cabin alongside the babbling stream is basically the antidote to everything

  • 5 of 5

Provided you remember that the operative word is cosy you will enjoy everything about this place. So sweet. And the surrounding flora so beautiful

A perfect cozy getaway

  • 5 of 5

The Love Shack was the perfect place to get away and simply relax. The cabin is incredibly cozy and comfortable. Our favorite things were the screen porch and the sound of the creek just a few steps away. We would definitely return! Thank you, Anna!

A quiet, cozy creekside cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at the Love Shack. It's a perfect place to get away from it all and simply sit on the porch, read or talk, and listen to the relaxing sounds of the burbling creek. Anna was a great host. We would definitely return. Thank you, Anna!
