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.
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

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!
Calm, nature, the love Shack was the perfect home away from home... We look forward to being back, and jump in that perfect pool!
Thank you Carrie and Anna for everything
We had a great time at Anna's comfortable cabin! We especially enjoyed the spring fed pool, creek, nearby hiking, convenient distance to town, Beatrice Wood artwork, and the excellent communication with Carrie and Anna. We had to move our booking by a day due to a family emergency and they were very accommodating. Would recommend to anyone who prefers a unique place surrounded by nature over a generic motel in town!
My husband and I enjoyed three nights at the Love Shack celebrating our 48th wedding anniversary and found the Love Shack to be just perfect. It was clean, quiet and so lovely to sit on the screened porch overlooking the creek listening to the running water over the rocks. Enjoyed our stay very much. Sam and Sandy
This place was perfect for exploring Los Padres national forest and Ojai. Wish we had more time. Was so nice sitting on the porch listening to the stream. The cabin had everything we needed. And we were there during the CA heat wave so the pool was very refreshing.
