Just spent the weekend at the Dent House, Guest Barns, and Farmhouse. We have a large group of 20 and 30 somethings that go away every year for Halloween weekend. We've been to some spectacular places and this was our favorite. We all went in prepared for serious rusticness, dirtiness, and ants based on the other reviews from this website... More

First, the Rustic: We stayed in the Farm House and the Guest Barns. The Farm House is a quaint country cottage but pretty dirty and bare-bones in terms of comfort. Hot water was iffy, windows leaky so freezing at night without central heating (just a kind of space heater that did not heat the house properly). The caretaker and his... More

I'll just start by saying....I LOVE THE DENT HOUSE. Love everything about it. I spent last weekend there along with my 6 best girlfriends. This was our 9th year doing our trip and our 4th time staying at the Dent House. A noticeable difference from our last trip was that the grounds look really amazing. All of the trees were... More

Our women's group (8 moms from No. County San Diego) stayed at the Dent House 3 years in a row during the first weekend in November. Each of us has only the FONDEST memories of the Dent House. We stayed in the Main House, and there was at least one donkey whose hee-hawing each morning we found very delightful! Several... More

First of all bring your camera!! i cant believe that everyone in our group expected someone else to have theirs with them! My only regret is that I dont have any pics to show my friends who I have been talking about my weekend with. I first learned about The Dent House from a family member. I am happy and... More

We just returned from a family reunion at the Dent House in Ojai CA. There was 23 of us and everyone had a great time. This is not a spa or resort and shouldn't be confused with one, but a great place to spend time with family and enjoy the outdoors. We rented all four homes/cabins and everyone was quite... More

Wow, we just got back from a weekend at the Dent House for a friends birthday and I was going to review it. I had never been there before and didn't know anything about the place so arrived with no preconceived ideas. I’m glad that I didn’t see that review that momofthree wrote or I might have tried to talk... More

DO NOT go to the Dent House. It was a nightmare of a stay for us. Ants cover everything & are everywhere in the houses & barns. The bathtubs are stained brown (no joke) - - I will put up pics when I get a chance. Whoever did their website deserves an award for faux marketing b/c it is nothing... More

Elizabeth-denthouse, Owner at The Dent House, responded to this review

Hello; This is an open letter responding to a review by momofthreeintheOC. I feel compelled to respond since I just read her review of the Dent House, and was appalled. We lease the residences fully furnished without housekeeping unless this is additionally requested, yet I don’t know when they could have had such an experience so I do not know... More
