We spent a wonderful girl's weekend at Diane's cabin which was so wonderfully comfortable. From the moment we opened the thick 1940's wooden door, we knew we were in for a treat. The cabin is fully furnished with an adorable kitchen, comfy living room couch, upstairs office/loft, and beautiful private back bedroom with wood burning fireplace. One step outside the backyard and you're surrounded by the trees of the Los Padres National Forest, a nice change of pace from our busy LA lives.

We drove an hour east to explore the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve and were not disappointed--definitely a must-see if you are visiting during the bloom!

This cabin was the perfect for spending a relaxing weekend with friends, we loved just hanging out in the living room together watching dvds and chit chatting while eating dinner. Everything about the place made us feel comfortable like we were in a second home. Would definitely recommend staying here if you're visiting the area :) Their backyard opens up to the Los Padres National Forest -- acres and acres of land to explore!

My girlfriends and I had a great weekend getaway here and it was very relaxing! The cabin itself was cozy and cute! Everything was stocked well and it was very clean. The surrounding area is beautiful and has an amazing sunrise. There are a few local spots to eat or grab a drink. The backyard area is a perfect spot to hang out for an afternoon or enjoy s'mores by the fire in the evening.

Our host Diane answered all of our questions before arrival with several suggestions. This made for little interaction and an overall good experience.

I highly recommend this spot to anyone looking for some place to get away for a few days and not have to drive a very far to get out of Los Angeles.

What a beautiful spot. Diane made herself available to chat about the details beforehand. The house, while in a small mountain-community neighborhood, backs up to the forest and feels very private. All the amenities you would need for a comfortable trip away - pots & pans, dishes, silverware, bedding, etc + fire pit in yard & wood burning stove in master bedroom. Grocery store, gas & a few restaurants two minutes down the road. Will definitely be coming back. Thanks Diane!

My boyfriend, Nick and I, decided to rent this cabin for our 6 year anniversary. We are so glad that we did too. If you've been to this area before--you know it's magic. It's less than two hours away from Santa Barbara or LA and it seems like another world. It kind of reminded us of Northern Colorado where dry ranch terrain meets mountains and lush greenery. However, nothing really compares--it's something all on it's own.

Previously when we travelled to this area, we stayed in Pine Mountain Club which definitely had more of a tourist/vacation home vibe. Frazier Park feels local. We're both from small towns in the Midwest so the slow and relaxed nature of Frazier Park reminded us of home. The cabin is located in a residential area, so you do have neighbors to your left and right, but none past the back yard which is National Forest territory. Coming from the city, this location still felt very desolate and relaxing. The neighborhood is quiet and it seems like nearly everyone in Frazier Park are dog people (yay!). The people that we met at the local stores and market were extremely friendly and welcoming. There is a coffee shop on the other side of town which we walked to as well. But, I should provide fair warning that it's quite a bit of a work out walking back up from the coffee shop. It's a great way to wake up though! We also found some walking paths down the street from the cabin and spent a whole day exploring Mt. Pinos. I can't believe we've lived in Santa Barbara for so long and never made it to the summit of Mt. Pinos before. To see snow in April, in California, is truly something else. There were memories made during this trip that we'll never forget. Thank you!

The view from the back yard. So serene. There were many birds to watch too.The door to the cabin was fit for a castle! This was probably my favorite design feature. However, the cabin is filled with kitsch details that make it feel like home.The loft with a desk and twin bed upstairs was adorable. Any guest would love this private space. The lighting was also lovely in there.This chandelier hung from the living room ceiling. The ambience was everything.

This spot is in the perfect spot in this Los Padres community. The nearby market has all the good stuff (no really their buyer is brillant) and the Caveman Caveys pizza place is soooo perfect with chewy dough.

The home itself felt like it wanted people there. I wanted to treat it like the cozy, beautiful, and above all comfy home away from home that it is.

You really will find everything you need here, and it is kept in amazing order. You will love it!

We enjoyed staying in this Cozy Cabin, which lived up to its name! It was very comfortable and we especially enjoyed watching the ground squirrels run around in the back yard. The kitchen had everything we could possibly need and there was plenty of space throughout the cabin. The location is great for doing some hiking, and the nearby town is convenient for grabbing forgotten items or a meal. We would definitely stay again and recommend to anyone else.

A lovely little cabin right by the woods. We enjoyed cooking on the fire outside, and watching the sunset from the mountain. The house was equipped with everything we needed to make us feel right at home. We loved revisiting some old favorite movies like Jumanji and Holes–great DVD selection. A quaint and cozy place to stay.
