Description

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday home in Riverside Rancho - O'Leary's Cabin

Charming detached cottage on estate w. salt water pool and hot tub, shade trees

This charming one bedroom, detached house is the original 1940s stableman’s quarters for the Bette Davis estate Riverbottom. The cabin is fresh, vibrant and newly refurbished while still maintaining some of its unique, original features.

The cool, open LIVING ROOM and KITCHEN has high ceilings, exposed beams, white wood floors and original art on the walls. The front door and main windows face the garden, trees and hammock, and the stable block. The back windows look out over the neighboring horse paddocks and in the far distance, the LA Equestrian Center and the setting sun beyond that.

The BEDROOM is small, simple, with a Custom Comfort (very comfortable) queen sized bed. There’s built-in closet/storage area. A small fold out couch at the foot of the bed (that can be used as a second bed).

The BATHROOM has a groovy tiled shower and looks out through arched windows toward the pool.

Named after Humphrey Bogart’s character Michael O’Leary, the stableman in Davis’ 1939 film Dark Victory; the cabin enjoys a 32” flat screen tv with both digital cable and Apple TV and Netfix, there’s wifi throughout the estate. Heating and air-conditioning are in the wall unit in the living room; the laundry (clothes washer and drier) in the adjoining utility room.

We have keyless entry and the grounds are large enough that the house feels very private. With the added bonus that we are right there to answer questions or fix anything that may arise.

We share the estate with other houses that are available for let

Rivergate is a private, historic equestrian ESTATE. It enjoys massive organic gardens, almost half acre of drought tolerant garden with an abundance of butterflies and birds, saltwater pool and spa, hammocks, shade trees, French Lavender maze for toddlers to learn to walk through, art studio, fire pit, fountain area, fruit orchard, outdoor dining areas… and Wi-Fi throughout. O’Leary's Cottage the most private house available, at the far end of the sandy back garden. It is not uncommon as the sun is setting that we all gather to play or chat in the garden, the park, or in the front orchard. It is a unique place and a little hard to describe, it feels a little like a village on a summer day.

About Amy B

I live part time on the estate with my two young children Winston and Vivienne. I am originally from London, England. I take my role as host very seriously and personally. I have won the Hero Award form another Holiday Rental site. We have a kind and hardworking team here and we do our very best to make sure that you have a great time.

Amy B purchased this house in 2012

Why Amy B chose Glendale

The NEIGHBORHOOD upscale and residential. Many of the large houses have private stables and it is common to see cowboys riding in the streets. We are just a few miles from Los Feliz, Silver Lake and Atwater (two exits on the freeway, about 5 minutes). We are bicycling distance from the studios (NBC, CBS, Warner Bros, Disney, Nickelodeon …). Additionally, there are four golf courses very near, as well as Travel Town, the LA Zoo, The Autry Museum, several horse riding facilities and playgrounds, Pickwick ice-skating and bowling and of course the wildlife and 52 miles of hiking and horse riding trails in Grffith Park.

Don’t let the rural setting and the hooting of the owls fool you, we are still in the heart of the city and you should be aware that you can sometimes hear the freeway, helicopters, dogs and sirens typical of city living. I mention it because it seems out of place while you lounge in the sun on the lawn feeling like you are out in the country.

What makes this house unique

There are great cycling trails and running tracks throughout the neighborhood and into the Park. Downtown Los Angeles is about 15 minutes away, depending a little on the infamous LA traffic (there is a shortcut through the park along Riverside Drive that is very pretty and cuts out some of the traffic).

Burbank and Glendale are home to loads of shopping including the Americana (a high end outdoor mall with fountain, fine restaurants and events). A Pavilions supermarket is one of the finest around and within walking distance.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Amy is a great host, friendly and helpful. I appreciated the detailed driving directions as well as the property instructions that were on the dining room table when I arrived. O'Leary's cabin was perfectly located for my trip and I was happy to be Amy's guest for this stay.



One note on O'Leary's cabin that's not in the description - the cabin is one arm of an L-shaped building. The other arm of the building are stalls where two horses are in residence. I enjoyed their presence but it was a surprise when I checked into the cabin in the evening and shortly after heard a boisterous whinny! The horses are quiet 98 percent of the time and I got a real kick out of leaving them a daily apple treat!



October 2013



RESPONSE FROM AMY:

Misty and Curly are new additions to our stables here at Rivergate. The stables were uninhabited and a little lonely so we adopted them. Probably, like us humans in a new place, the horses called out to a stranger in the dark. I think is what happened here.



Misty, the little gray pony, and Curly, the old bay man; are now quite seasoned to us.



I am sure Chandra got a surprise, the previous house description described the stables as uninhabited. I should say that the stables are tended twice a day, they are about 50 feet from the house, and we find add to the charm and enjoyment of the estate.

Relaxing....

  • 5 of 5

This place is a hidden gem. Absolutely charming! It's set back off the gated driveway and very quite and excluded. The rush of being in LA goes away when you enter here. The bed was so comfy, linens are fresh, and Amy the perfect hostess. I will define tally be coming back to stay. Very close to all the production studios.

A perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

Everything was wonderful--the house, the pool, the yard, the fire pit, and Amy was incredibly responsive whenever we had questions. This was our second stay here, because after the first why would we want to vacation anywhere else?

Perfect for the business traveller!

  • 5 of 5

Perfectly located, super clean, very quiet and peaceful - if like me you have to travel to LA for business and are tired of seeing the same hotel rooms over and over again, this made my whole travel week so much better! having a bowl of cereal outside in the sun beats the Hampton Inn buffet!

and to top it off, Amy the owner is very helpful and super nice!

Highly recommended!

Charming Cabin

  • 4 of 5

The atmosphere at the location was as lovely as our property manager, Amy. O'Leary Cabin was very clean and overall a quiet & relaxing place to stay. The grounds & pool were well kept and inviting with hammocks & outdoor seating accented by a lavender maze as well as other plantings in the area.

We appreciated the proximity to Griffith Park and the nearby equestrian center, zoo & Autry Museum. Quiet neighborhood with great information on nearby restaurants & businesses.

We had a bit of a problem accessing WiFi but no other complaints.

A Rustic Cozy Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is such a delightful place and our hostess could not have been more accommodating,. Everything was thoughtfully provided for a comfortable stay. Do note this is located in an equestrian neighborhood so be prepared to hear and smell horses. We personally enjoyed that aspect of the property, especially saying good morning to the chickens. The bed was especially comfortable.
