Cozy and quirky cabin, with sounds of the creek outside your window
My boyfriend and I spent the weekend at the Love Shack for his birthday. Even though I had read the reviews beforehand, nothing could have prepared me for the wonder and the splendor and the absolute delights that awaited us. The cabin is smack in the middle of nature, with all sorts of greenery surrounding the place. At night, we fell asleep to the sounds of running water and frogs, and in the morning we awoke to the same creek and chirping birds. We spent lazy mornings drinking coffee and breakfasting on the covered porch, where we could watch and hear the nature around us. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare light meals--stove, oven, mini-fridge (even had a tiny freezer compartment!), pots, pans, and a baking tray. We built a fire both nights, using the cut wood buffet that was in the shed right outside the cabin--it made the cabin even more cozy. One of the most fascinating parts of the cabin was the art. Pieces by Beatrice Wood were in ample supply, peppered throughout the cabin. It was fun and humbling to read the books about her, while trying to spot all her pieces in the cabin. Even though the Love Shacks seems out of the way on a map, it really is not far from all the fun Ojai things you might want to do. There are plenty of trailheads close by (we did the Cozy Dell Trail, less than half a mile from the cabin). The main drag of Ojai is about a 10-minute drive away, and there are quite a few other spots in between. Ojai is a funky, spunky town, and getting to stay at the Love Shack while exploring made the weekend infinitely better. The next time we visit Ojai, we definitely want to return to the Love Shack.
