What an honor it was to stay in this gem of a studio! Upon arrival, Chris and Jim (and their dog, Abby) greeted us and showed us around- they are very down to earth and welcoming. Entering, what once was Chris' art studio, I couldn't believe my eyes! It's a mixture of Chris' paintings & jewelry and Jim's furniture, along with thoughtful touches everywhere you look- and believe me, I looked! As hosts in the SF Bay Area, I felt I needed some new inspiration, and I certainly hit the inspiration jackpot! Their backyard is so tranquil with a koi pond, chickens and beautiful landscape. The bed was really comfy, and the shower was great, but the best part was taking in all of the creative talent between these two artists. Chris has a binder full of information on local restaurants and things to do in town. We walked to a couple restaurants and downtown Ojai is a short drive away. We loved everything about our stay! If you need to get away from it all, even for a weekend, this is the place!

The Artist's Studio Retreat is a delight! The room is full of Christine's pieces and you'll be spotting something new each time you enter. The guidebook provided gave us everything we needed to know about Ojai and we had some wonderful coffees and dinners out on recommendation. The garden is also an absolute dream. Very relaxing! Thanks, Christine! (Abby the dog is also super-friendly and greeted us when we arrived!)

This place is magic -- the furniture, art, garden are astounding. Every place you look delights the eye and makes you wish you had thought of "that". When I first arrived, I said charming, but that is too weak a word. It is much more than that. No television, no micro, but who needs them.

Adorable, perfect space central to activities in Ojai! Loved the yoga studio down the street!

The artist's cottage is even better than the pictures let on. The room is spacious and open, and the backyard is an oasis. I really appreciated the complimentary oranges and coffee before setting out on morning adventures. I would definitely recommend!
