Guestbook

The Dent House has been exquisite! Coming here has been a truly unique experience! Our whole family has come here to celebrate my wonderful grandparents 50th wedding anniversary, and no place could have been a better place to go. Weve loved Ojai, Ventura Beach and all of the beautiful trails and swimming holes! The green hills and fruit orchards are unbelievable. All of the Barns and the Dent House are so amazing! I will always value our trip here and will never forget it! I hope everyone else who stays here loves it as well!

The 550-acre sanctuary in Matilija canyon rests on the edge of Los Padres National Forest. A burro named Bumper, free roaming peacocks, peahens and a gaggle of geese and ducks make this place home. Fruit laden orchards scent the air. Seductive yard swings yawn in the breeze, hummingbirds sip nectar from morning glories, holy hocks, and Matilija Poppies that grow wild in Ojais valley. The serene valleys canyons and the surrounding Topa Topa Mountains, famous for the pink glow they give off at sunset, boast hidden treasures right out the Barns backdoor. We hiked toward a landmark known by locals as Old Man Mountain, because the distinct visage of a wise old man peers out from the distant mountainside. We cooled off at a swimming hole, fed by a nearby waterfall. When youre on the trail listening to seeds crackle and pop open on mulberry bushes its hard to fathom that L.A. rages only a 90-minute drive away.

Thank you for a fabulous time! The house and canyon exceeded our expectations! So cozy and warm, this group of 7 moms will surely return. We cooked, drank wonderful wine, hiked, shopped and laughed! The donkeys were a highlight as they kept us amused. Awesome memories to last a lifetime. Thank you.

We gathered here from Hong Kong, Singapore, New York, Texas and Hawaii. (oh and Virginia). The ranch proved an idyllic setting for family and long lost, (not forgotten) friends to have a reunion with nature and with each other. We found our time here to be exempt from public chaos with tongues in trees and breath in running brooks. We leave today for off places, but will be back.
