Cabin - Entire home/apt · Drown Ave, Ojai, CA 93023, United States

The Space

Nestled in the foothills of the stunning Topa Topa Mountains, you will find our charming peaceful serene and of course romantic surroundings of our Lodgepine Cabin~ situated next to the Salt ~Solar Pool on just under an acre of land in the pristine Ojai Valley.The pine aroma of the cabin combined with the scents of all the blossom from the Orange Groves and flowering trees creates a natural aromatherapy relaxing feeling. The cabin is decorated in authentic native American decor in a tasteful and cozy manner. There is a fridge~ tea and coffee maker~ Pottery mugs & dishes to use. The grape vineyard has 3 varieties outside the door that you are welcome to cut, and also pick very sweet navel oranges from the tree. In summer apricots plums lemons & limes as well.

The first thing you'll notice when you awake is how calm, fresh, and clear headed you will feel. Ojai has an incredible power to rejuvenate tired, stressed and overworked bodies, minds and souls, and you will leave our cabin feeling refreshed and full of life.
Summer evenings are warm and soft with night skies untarnished by light or other pollution, so you can see thousands of stars that you didn't even know existed.Because the property is almost an acre with no street lights at all the the stars and moon are clear and bright to sit and gaze in the paddock at the Topa Topa Mt. The quiet peaceful silence so very romantic and special. A true amazing get away from the city to find a relaxing place full of peace, love, and light.
In the spring you will be delighted by the smell of orange blossoms flowing through the warm wind. In the Fall and Winter, Ojai comes alive with holiday festivities, parades, concerts, and with an average temperature that rarely falls below 62 degrees, you will always have an opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors. The pink moment of the Ojai Sunset is a stunning experience that you must see with your own eyes. Yoga classes, day hikes in the Los Padres national forest, or even a little tennis at Libby bowl are other great ways to unwind and decompress from the hectic pace of modern life, and are all just moments away from our place. Come to Ojai and enjoy our little piece of Shangri-La!

Guest Access

A highlight of the property is we have an array of seating areas to choose from. You can sit in 2 different Cabana with electric fans and lights. Stretch out in comfy sofas and wicker chairs by the pool or at a picnic table under the umbrella. For total shade another sofa area and proper wooden dining table and chairs. The Paddock could be where you might like to do your morning Yoga or Meditation under the pepper trees. My pottery is in the stable and I am happy to teach private lessons so you can produce your own pottery as a memory of your visit. I love having babies and children around and can provide extra futon if needed. Dogs are welcome and we have 2 dog parks a block away as well as Shelf Rd. Trail 1/2 mile away. You can leave from the cabin and make a 5 mile loop back just the right amount of hike before the sunset and a bottle wine.
Laundry facilities ~ Wireless Internet

Interaction with Guests

I love the Ojai Valley and know a lot about where to go and visit and always willing to talk and be friendly but I realize visitors want their privacy and I respect that very much. The property is very private and this can be achieved. My husband and i live in the main house and always are present on arrival to make sure check in is successful.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • My girlfriend and I had a wonderful time staying at Karen and John's cabin in Ojai. We spent a lot of time walking to and from the cabin to downtown (about a 10-15 minute, peaceful walk), relaxed by the pool and overall had a great experience. Karen and John were very helpful recommending hiking trails as well as recommending visiting Meditation Mount just before sunset. Ojai is a wonderful place to get away from the hustle bustle of the city and staying at their cabin did just that for us. Thanks again!

  • Had a great stay. Flew in from Australia in morning, drove to Ojai, and collapsed in deep sleep by 2pm. Perfect. Karen and John were excellent hosts.

    Hi Vincent & Katrina,
    John & I are so glad you had such a restful time as your first arrival point in Ca!!
    We both enjoyed meeting you both
    Happy Trails

  • We arrived on a mid week afternoon during our two kid's spring break. Though we only live 15 miles from Ojai, the journey we made from our beach town into the Ojai Valley made us feel like we were miles away from home. When we arrived, it had been raining and dark clouds sat threatening above the Topa Topa mountains, made that evening feel magical and the air was so sweet and fresh (rain is unusual for Ojai, so it was a bit of a celebration). Karen and John are great people and made our stay warm and inviting. Karen is a potter and makes very beautiful and functional pottery that can be enjoyed everyday. Our two kids, ages 6 and 11 had the fortunate experience to have a pottery class during our stay. This was a perfect two day get away for us. Thank you John and Karen!

    Hi Karen & Family,
    Thank you for such a lovely and thoughtful review. John and I so enjoyed spending time with you all. We loved how you appreciated spending just soaking up the environment that we love. The kids pottery came out so nice!!
    Hope to see you soon
    All the best,
    Karen & Johnx

  • The cabin here is lovely and great fun to stay in. Ojai is beautiful and a pleasure to visit. Karen left us oranges from her garden in the cabin, and she and her husband were both relaxed and welcoming. The only minor suggestion I would have would be to maybe leave some coffee and bagels or something for breakfast. In the description it says you can have breakfast based on the menu price but there was no mention of it when we arrived or a menu that we could find. That said, I would recommend it as a place to stay. The cabin is so well built and the bathroom had a good shower.

  • My husband and I had never been to Ojai, so we decided to go and check it out. We stayed at the beautiful Peaceful Lodgepine Topa Topa Cabin and had a wonderful time. The cabin is super cozy and close to everything in the town. Karen and John were great hosts. They were able to help us with everything we needed to know about Ojai. Thank you again Karen and John!

    Hi Miriam & Max,
    It was a pleasure meeting you and we both appreciate your thoughtful comments. We both are glad we could be apart of your 1st Ojai experience and you had such an enjoyable time spending time in the cabin.
    All the best,
    Karen & Johnx

  • Karen was a wonderful host and her cabin and garden/ pool are enchanting. If you are looking to have some relaxation in Ojai and a place to stay with personality, this is a great option. A nice salt water pool, beautiful plants and a lovely cat on top of it all. Everything is walkable in Ojai and you really do not need to drive unless you want to. Karen told us about a nearby hike which we went on the day we got there and we got a view of the entire town and surrounding area. Not only is this a nice place to stay but Karen is a gracious host who knows a lot about the area. If you want a massage, reiki or other services she can help you find it! You'll love your stay here.

  • This unique and peaceful cabin in Ojai is a wonderful getaway spot! My boyfriend and I were looking to get out of LA and into nature to celebrate our anniversary and this cabin did the trick! The large property has an open feel and is nestled snugly in the Ojai mountains with a lovely view. We brought our dog, relaxed on the property in the comfortable lounging areas, hiked through gorgeous citrus orchards, enjoyed the fresh air, and walked into town for breakfast and dinner. Karen and John were very warm and welcoming hosts! I definitely recommend!

    Response from Karen:

    Hi Amanda and Cameron,
    Thank you for your kind words. We are so glad we could be a part of your special anniversary celebration. It was so nice to see how you really took in the aspects of the cabin and Ojai that we love about the place.
    We wish you all the very best,
    Karen and Johnx

  • Staying at the Peaceful Lodgepine Topa Topa Cabin was phenomenal. The location was central to great hiking trails (we did Matilija Canyon and Shelf Road) & close to many restaurants. It felt private, but still like an event, and the pottery class was amazing. Karen was super nice and available for giving us insider info into Ojai while still respecting our privacy. The cabin itself was very comfortable and got cozier the longer we spent there.
    Loved it!
    E and G

    Response from Karen:

    Hi E and G,
    It was a joy having you both stay in the cabin and thank you for your kind words and being so appreciative of the natural surroundings. So glad you had so much fun making pots and they came out great as well.
    All the best,
    Karen & John

  • We had a great time spending the night at Karen and johns cabin! It's easy to walk to the Main Street and has a beautiful setting at the base of the mountains. Karen and Scott were very interesting to chat with, knowledgable about great spots to check out in ojai. It's was a great relaxing night out of the city!

    Hi Lizz Mike & Violet,
    Thank you for sharing your special Anniversary in our cabin!! Your enjoyment of our simple outdoor space is very appreciated.
    All the best,
    Karen & Johnx

  • My boyfriend's and my stay in Karen and John's cabin was wonderful. It truly is as peaceful and serene as described, and is an easy and flower-scented walk from downtown. During our time in Ojai we did much exploring, hiking, yoga-ing, and eating of great food, but the cabin itself and Karen and John's gentle helpfulness was still probably the highlight of the weekend.

    I even successfully resisted stealing their charming and inquisitive cat.
