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 like the website states.
Oooh, and Bats fly through the bedrooms at night - - ok, that is neat for kids, but not neat for parents paying a couple thousand for a few nights! The only thing respectable were the clean sheets & bed coverings. The rest of the house was filthy. Think black feet when you take your shoes off. (We stayed in the West Barn, East Barn & Cottage house next to the barns.) Never again. And, since it was such a nightmare of a stay, I feel obligated to warn others. Cobwebs, filth, and a caretaker out of a horror movie. You could hear him cussing up a storm, drinking beer in the peacock cages, and he even had the nerve to tell our kids (all under 8) "Don;t worry about the poision oak, unless you have s*x in it." ?? We, the parents, were standing right there! Obnoxious, unhelpful, and scary. Really.
Btw, no donkeys, no horses. Just peacocks, chickens & geese in filthy surroundings. Not our idea of country charm.
