This one-of-a-kind cottage looks like it's out of a fairy tale. It is a lovely mix of antique and modern, nestled in the middle of a giant oak forest. There is a loft bedroom upstairs with lots of windows and a very luxurious queen bed. Adjacent to that is a second queen bed in a smaller "cubby hole".
Downstairs is a living room with lots of windows and a floor made out of actual stones. There is a kitchen with a stainless steel sink, fridge and hot plate. The cottage features a handcrafted bathroom with cedar walls and a large marble bathtub.
This cottage is on a 13 acre ranch with 8 artistic cottages and lots of parking. All the structures on the property were built by artists, are very rustic and each has its own whimsical character. The neighbors are far away and the house far off the road so there's lots of privacy. There are also over 100 oak trees and sculpted streams below. In this canyon there are even places where you can be in rocky areas with a total canopy of green above.

The 6 hour minimum hourly rate includes an interior of 1 cottage (ending before noon or starting after noon) + exteriors throughout the property and up to 8 people. For productions larger than 8 people there is a 12 hour minimum. This includes up to 16 people - beyond that people are $40/person/day. Please note that this property is an active hotel - so property rentals start at midday. If a cottage is needed for the whole day an additional day of interior fee is usually required. Please be considerate of other activities happening on the land, especially after dark. We look forward to hosting your production!
Unlike many super rustic locations we are literally only 15 minutes from Santa Monica, Malibu and the 101 in the valley.
