You can't imagine all the work put into this genuine desert hide-away. Built like a native American structure, the main residence is a work of art. Scattered about the grounds are antique tools and wagons. You can take all day to see it all. Fascinating.

Yes, but I think it's worth it to do at least once. Small children would probably be bored by the tour though.
