In the beautiful mountains of the Los Padres National Forest, which surround Ojai, is a geographically rare East-West Canyon, with perennial streams and great beauty. There you will find The Dent House, its Farmhouse, and Guest Barns, offering a journey back to a gentler time, and a chance to gather together with friends, family, or work mates; to slow down the hectic pace of today's life. Nature waits to be visited, right outside the door, rockers on screened porches, cozy couches and chairs in the houses are perfect for curling up with a book, or for a snooze. Gather together to cook memorable meals, wander off by yourself to reconnect with what is truly important. The houses, which can be rented together for larger groups, or individually, if available, are wonderfully furnished with antiques and all contemporary amenities, satellite TV, book and video libraries, games, fine linens, down comforters and pillows, ceiling fans, and the grounds are glorious...from graceful gardens to the glories of the surrounding Los Padres National Forest. There are great hiking trails, ponds, streams for splashing, burros for skritching, peacocks for beauty, eggs to gather from our chickens, fruit on the trees for the picking, and a setting in nature that speaks of centuries of unique and restorative beauty.
All of the appeal of Ojai is a 20 minute drive away, with terrific restaurants, shopping, and the famous attractions of this picturesque small town with big sophistication and simple charm. E-mail for directions to our website for a closer look.
