We are a unique, rural property in the foothills just outside of Palm Springs, California. As a Certified Wildlife Habitat and Monarch Waystation, you are immersed in a living desert. Whether you are here to write your next song, hike Joshua Tree, enjoy Palm Spring's Village nightlife, or just relax, we've got something for everyone.
