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.

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

Provided you remember that the operative word is cosy you will enjoy everything about this place. So sweet. And the surrounding flora so beautiful
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!
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!
Much, much better than any hotel room, has everything you need and don't need and more. Very clean, 10 minutes from downtown Ojai. The privacy, relaxing environment, the porch (reading in the AM and watching the moon in the evening), the babbling brook (go down and sit by it for a while) made for a stay you don't often experience when traveling. Perfect for couple bonding. Minor minus, challenging to find at first, better directions needed especially if at night. Make sure you get the gate code too.
From the very beginning of our communication, it was clear that our stay in Ojala would be very easy and relaxing. We were provided with very clear instructions on how to access the property and what we would be able to expect. The shack itself was small yet spacious all at the same time, and the property at large was very inviting (including a really wonderful freshwater pool). For anyone looking to find a quiet spot away from the craziness of LA or the coast line, this is a perfect spot.
My wife and I spent an enchanting two nights at the Love Shack. It was hot but we took dips in the creek and the pool to cool off. We used the little screened in porch to read and relax. The kitchen is lovely and we cooked all our meals there. The caretaker left us fresh fruit from the orchard which was a very welcoming touch. Don't miss the chance to stay in this magical place! Thanks Anna!
