“Refreshingly different and “homey, We were on a planned-from-home road trip and were attracted to the ‘Wild West’ appearance of this little gem. We found very friendly and helpful hosting there and a suite which was really a complete apartment with a full kitchen, 2 bedrooms and 2 toilets – really a great place to stay on the edge of the desert and a trip to Joshua Tree National Park. Our host suggested going for a night of stargazing with amateur astronomers at the Sky’s The Limit Observatory near the entry to the park – we did and it was a great experience!”
