Ojai Part 1: The Love Shack and Ojala

We have just returned from the most inspiring, relaxing weekend in gorgeous Ojai. Central to the wonderfulness of our getaway was the cabin we rented: The Love Shack. This little jewel sits perched over a flowing stream, on the lush grounds of a former resort called Ojala.

Entering the gates of Ojala was like stumbling into the sweetest, sun dappled dream. The perfect cabin embodied cozy. We never saw our hosts but their personalized graciousness was felt throughout our stay.

Warm welcome from Robert and Anna.

If only you could hear the stream, the breeze through the trees, and the birds...

Softest sheets.

Isn't this the most delicious porch?

NOTE: We choose The Love Shack based on Heather's glowy recommendation. So thank you so much Heather. It was beautiful.

  1. Dear Elsie,
    Thank you for sharing these most excellent pictures of our beloved Ojala and of the Love Shack.
    The real payment that Anna and I value most is sharing our getaway with some one like you who appreciates its unique beauty, peace and charm.
    We hope we get to meet you on your next visit to Ojai. Thanks again, Robert and Anna
