Our Group started staying at Cockrell's High Desert Lodging for the Squirrel Round Up years ago and now we come back 3-4 times a year. Just a great comfortable place to get away and enjoy Surprise Valley!

Very nice, clean, and well kept accommodations. The houses are well stocked and furnished. It feels like you are at home! The Cockrells' are very good hosts. We have been coming annually now for over 15 years.

I've been coming to see Deb and Will for about ten years now, usually in the early to mid-March time frame. The two cabins, (if you could call them that, actually way nicer than what the average person would envision for a "cabin" in a rural area), are invariably spotless with fully equipped kitchens, large flat screen TV's, hot tubs,...

All the comforts of home, with all the "frills" of a vacation retreat in a beautiful country setting. The Cockrells are truly "down to earth" country hosts! Everything needed was provided. We can't wait to make it up there again.

What a great place to stay in Northern California. Off the beaten track surrounded by mountains and ranches in a beautiful setting. The lodge was spacious, beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Loved sitting in the hot tub in the evening hoping to see the Sandhills cranes and other wildlife. The owners were very friendly and accommodating especially on such short... More

If you like crowds and noise, this place is not for you. If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and life ....this is your place.
