08/17 Tiny House: A Vintage Cabin With a Starry Background in Los Padres Forest

When we spotted this rustic cabin in the woods, we thought it was the ultimate getaway. The 300-square-foot cottage located in Los Padres National Forest is a steal for $85,000.

However, this tiny house also brings the sheen of Hollywood glamour. The owners, who prefer to remain anonymous, have had the cabin for 20 years—and they’re in show biz.

So going from “the belly of the beast to paradise,” as they put it, in just 60 minutes from Los Angeles was a major draw for the couple, who raved about the back-to-the-land appeal of their vacation home. It’s located outside the town of Frazier Park, CA, and only a short drive to shopping, dining, and a post office.
