We booked a cabin at Furnace Creek and were glad we chose this particular option among the limited choices available. Furnace Creek Inn is reviewed here under the same title, but it should have a separate listing - it's a completely separate place and much more expensive and upscale. That said, we were glad we chose a cabin over a place by the pool and the grass because it was quieter there, and for us the point was to "get away" out into nature, not to hear other people at the pool or the tennis courts. Plus I really enjoyed my early morning stroll down to the end of the short road which terminated in the palm tree grove, where I saw a coyote one morning and lots of birds another.
The cabin was very small and basic, and more like a motel room than an attractive log cabin would be, but it served our needs fine. We especially enjoyed sitting on the front patio with our coffee and tea in the morning or with a beer in the evening. The coffee maker and hair dryer in the room were much appreciated.More
