It is in a beautiful high desert setting, comfy room, well-appointed shared great room with wine, teas and cookies. Carrie is a very good cook, providing great breakfasts and offering wine, teas and cookies for the evening. She is an excellent hostess, she suggested lots of restaurants. She has thought of everything one might have forgotten to bring, even a daypack and cooler for picnics.

We spent three nights in Casa Rosita, one of the 'self catering' units available through Desert Lily. A great location very near the Joshua Tree Welcome Center and the West enterance of the Joshua Tree National Park. This is why we picked Desert Lily and we were not disappointed. Some of the best hiking in the park was minutes away.

Our stand alone house/Casa had a full kitchen a dining room/area, a living room and a bedroom and a full bath. It was a bit cool and windy during our stay but there is a nice outside patio and a fireplace on the patio affording lovely views of the valley into the town of Joshua Tree. The place has a remote feel as it is up the hill and down some windy gravel roads.

This was billed as a 'self catering' unit. We checked in at the main house (the traditional B& B). We were presented with a bottle of wine. We were on our own for our stay. The place did have sufficient toilet paper, some paper towels and dish soap. We could have used extra garbage bags. I don't know if they have a mechanism to replace towels or linens or tidy up if you are there more than three days.

Though there is a full kitchen we elected to bring in take out and wine back to the house and we dined in. We didn't want to try the windy road at night after wine with dinner. We especially enjoyed the nearby Thai restaurant take out. Order mild or medium and get hot sauce on the side! Some previous guests had left condiments and odds and ends in the 'fridge. I think those should be tossed. No clue how long they have been there. Even were we cooking I wouldn't have used them.

Furnishings and decorations in the house were a bit ecletic and a little shabby. The carpets could use replacing. My husband said it looked like a " '60's-Dragnet-hippies-lair". Beads, feathers, pillows and a lava lamp (which sadly didn't work) did give it that feel. The bed in the middle of the living room with a gazillion pillows (which faced the tv and the slider leading to the patio and the view down into the valley) seemed over the top until we lay on it to watch the tube and the views as the sun set. Not something I'm going to copy at home but it was comfy for our visit.

As we noted it was cool for our visit and they did have some space heaters and blankets which were adequate for us. Didn't notice if there is any AC for warm weather.

We would definately stay here again for the lovely views, the quiet setting and the proximity to the Joshua Tree National Park.

Desert Lily is very conveniently located just outside one of the entrances to Joshua Tree National Park. We were amazed by the beautiful surrounds - but the accommodation was very disappointing. The B&B has 3 rooms - A, B, and C. Heaven help you if you land up in room B because the rooms literally have zero soundproofing and you will be treated to every sound coming from your neighbors on either side. We were fortunate to be in the end room - so we only had to deal with "sounds" from one side. The rooms are TINY - you can barely get in the door with cases. There are nik naks all over the room - making the place feel very cluttered and not wonderfully clean. Our breakfast was excellent and the inn keepers are very accommodating. However at more than $150 a night I'm pretty sure you can do much better somewhere else in the Joshua Tree vicinity - we would not recommend the Desert Lily.

Wonderful B&B! There are only two rooms and the place is located on the dirt roads outside the city of Joshua Tree, north of the park. The rooms are not big but very charming. There is a wonderful common room with a fireplace, where wine and freshly baked cookies are provided for the guests. Breakfast was delicious and Carrie is a very generous host. Overall a wonderful experience!

nice people but rooms were tiny and noisy (other guests cell phone calls woke us up), too much decoration and no place to put our stuff down.
