Santa Barbara, CA: Eco-Cabin Retreat

Bjorklund Ranch: Peachtree Eco-Cabin


As they say, it’s no walk in the park, but we disagree. We think a long hike in the woods with your honey is the best way to endure the ups and downs of any long-term love affair (just don’t get any wise ideas, ya hear?).

So, for some much needed couple time with no distractions, Eco-Adventurer’s advice is to take a weekend (or longer) and spend it at a hidden Swedish eco-cabin in the Santa Barbara mountains. We’re not lying when we say, this is one secret gem we’ve been hesitant to share. Namely because… we want this sweet spot available the next time we’re in town.

Picture this: an eco-friendly cabin, an outdoor shower, an outdoor tub that you heat by lighting a fire beneath, and a deck overlooking a large expanse of mountains with near total privacy. Plus, it’s cheap!

The Stairway to Heaven (aka. The Stairway to the Outdoor Shower)

Granted, the outhouse is an outhouse, but the Bjorklund Ranch cabins (and yurts) are clean, comfortable and make for a rare Swedish retreat nestled into the California mountain side. The cabin, completely private and quiet, is also surrounded by fruit trees, a creek, and a view of the ocean.

Rental Includes:

  • Deck with great views and a BBQ grill
  • Wood burning stove with firewood provided
  • Private, outdoor shower under the deck
  • Exterior smell free composting toilet
  • Bio-compatible soaps
  • Jacuzzi (short walk to shared jacuzzi)
  • Optional Spa Package can be purchased

Rates/Conditions (rates include tax)

  • Mon – Thurs – $125 per night
  • Fri – Sun  – $145 per night

All rates are based on Double Occupancy and, trust us, if you don’t have a unique, truly loving experience… ain’t no amount of nature gonna help you weather those storms! This is one piece of natural bliss we certainly won’t forget.
