This was our 3rd stay here and definitely not our last! We love the peaceful ambience, cool and spacious room with the private patio for stargazing or just relaxing outside. Many thanks to Rich and Gwen for being gracious hosts and sharing this wonderful place. Betsy at the front desk with her smiling face was always helpful and accommodating. Took... More

I can't wait to go back! I felt like a friend left me the keys to their vacation home. The whole property was decorated wonderfully. There was a lot of homey details that you don't get at big hotels. Each room has a big outdoor patio with lounge chairs that are perfect for star gazing. It was super close to... More

Thank you for choosing the Inn for your stargazing adventure. It was an amazing show, and it's nice to have front row seats! The desert in summer is an entirely different experience than in the desert "season," when more moderate temperatures invite outdoor exploration. Thanks again for visiting, and we hope to see you again soon! More

We always pick room 7 to see the south horizon. The Milky Way arches overhead and cascades down toward the horizon, exposing the bright center of our galaxy. The stars of Scorpius and Sagittarius skim the mountains and gives a ethereal union of Earth and sky. I set up my telescope in the patio and enjoy the warm nights for... More

This is a small, but wonderful property. The rooms are very nice and clean, bed very comfortable. Our stay was nice, peaceful and very comfortable. We stayed during the off season, so we were provided with a breakfast tray that was left in our refrigerator. The amount of food on the tray was more than enough for two people and... More

It's wonderful to know you found your desert oasis with us. Summer guests appreciate the astounding peace and quiet and the low-key vibe in town. We're happy you enjoyed breakfast and the private patios for relaxing and stargazing. You're right about our focus -- a "refuge, not a resort," and we cater to those seeking a true reprieve from busy... More

This was our fifth or sixth visit to BVI, one of our favorite places in the world for rest and relaxation. Going in July is always fun because the inn and the town feel deserted in the desert heat. In fact, one night, we had the inn entirely to ourselves! The entire property is always immaculate, from the cleanliness of... More

As a July visitor, you qualify as a true desert lover! We agree that summer visits are truly special, but aren't for everyone -- and isn't that a good thing? Thank you for your loyalty and appreciation of the Inn. Our repeat guests mean so much to us, and they become like family, as you have, over the years. Thanks... More

My wife, Thelma, and I spent our 22nd anniversary at this very charming boutique hotel. It was the 4th of July weekend and nature (the heat and the desert beauty) was most impressive. The rooms were cool (both temperature and styling), two pools, very accommodating staff and the owner, Rich, made our stay memorable. We plan to return very soon!
