About Kathleen Barth
I have been visiting Ojai since childhood, and have lived here sporadically since 1988. My husband and I met at UC Santa Barbara, were married in Ojai, and lived here as newlyweds. We currently live in Riverside, CA, but frequent the valley for relaxation and rejuvenation.
Kathleen Barth purchased this Cottage in 1974
Why Kathleen Barth chose Ojai
My parents purchased this property as a family retreat and potential retirement spot. My husband and I now own it and love sharing with visitors!
What makes this Cottage unique
We love the rural feel of this area, and also enjoy its proximity to civilization. The hiking and biking are amazing, and the village of Ojai has fun activities year-round: festivals and events, great shopping, and open space. We have easy access to both Lake Casitas and the ocean, as well as a number of attractions along the coast. Most of all, we enjoy the quiet of hanging out here in the East End.

A Getaway Oasis
This property is located in a quiet neighborhood. It is a great location for a solo traveler and not far from town. There are trails and paths near this spot. The residence was clean and AC cooled.
Exactly like the pictures, my first time with Vrbo, and it was great!
Would definitely renting it again, didn’t really cook, but check out the cute kitchen and they were all stocked up.
Cottage in the woods
The cottage is well-appointed, cozy and very comfortable. It is located in a quiet, fairly secluded area about an 8-10 minute drive into Ojai. It is also about a 10 minute drive to several nearby hiking/walking trails. The property manager was very responsive. Check-in was a breeze. We look forward to returning for another stay soon!
Great little get-away spot.
The cottage was cozy, clean, simple but had everything we needed. In a great area with easy access to hiking and the beach.
Should be called Jade Tree Cottage
This place is AMAZING and was perfect for us. The neighborhood was lovely and quiet. We had everything we needed to make our food. The sleeping options were incredibly comfortable :). The outdoor eating space was beautiful and restorative- surrounded by incredible Jade Trees. I would have done some yoga if I had more time there. The reading nook in the bedroom was a lovely space for me to start the day while my children continued to sleep peacefully and comfortably in the front room. This would also be a perfect place for a writer's or artist's retreat. It's remote enough for quiet solitude and close enough to Ojai for delicious meals and community connections.
The East End of Ojai, renowned for peace and quiet, perfect for a relaxing stay away from the crowds, yet close to the action. Located in the far end of the valley, Pine Tree Cottage offers comfy privacy and amazing access. A short walk to the Horn Canyon trailhead, and multiple hikes of all distances and difficulties are available. A brief drive, and all of Ojai's activities and advantages are at one's fingertips. Sightseeing in Ventura or Santa Barbara make for fun and easy day trips.
