This beautiful, historic stone house sits in the midst of tall, tall palm trees. We stayed in the Museum Room, in a small building not far from the main house. Desert sunrises outside of our room. We had a comfortable sitting area with two couches, a handy kitchenette, and a big tub for soaking after hikes in Joshua Tree. Very generous, delicious breakfasts in the great room with a fire going in the big stone fireplace. My favorite breakfast: praline French toast. An extra treat: a bird cam in the reception area, showing the resident great horned owls as they sat in their nest. Gary and Jan, the owners, do an outstanding job at this very special place.
