Wife and I stayed two nights earlier this month. Immaculately polished, decorated and landscaped. We slept well, ate creative and healthy. And enjoyed a bottomless cookie jar. Off the main road, quiet. We're from San Diego and have found a new best place to go to.

We ventured out to Joshua Tree the weekend of Thanksgiving. We arrived at Carrie (the proprietor's) doorstep late the evening of Thanksgiving. She welcomed us inside to a very warm and inviting southwestern style living room and handed us a bottle of wine. I knew we had made a great choice :) The B&B is a bit off the beaten... More

We stayed two nights at this amazing B and B. Fabulous location and well placed for Joshua Tree National Park. Carrie has made her B and B an extra special place with attention to the detail, the breakfasts were amazing and wonderful to eat outside in the sunshine. We received a warm welcome and the lounge area and garden area... More

Our experience at the Desert Lily could not have been better. Carrie the owner was delightful and engaging. We found our room nicely decorated and the bed comfy. The breakfasts were healthy and delicious. Each morning we ate outside over looking the desert landscape and each evening we soaked in the stars that we never see living close to the... More

This is our second time at the Desert Lily B&B "compound". I call it that because there is a B&B as well as several free standing, self-catering casitas where we typically stay. Then Luna Vista was well-equipped, had lovely setting with indoor & outdoor fireplaces and perfectly fit our needs for a great price. More importantly, the staff were very... More

Decided to give this place a try with all the good reviews it had gotten. WE stayed to go the park and have a nice place to relax in. Stayed in the "biltmore" cabin, it was run down, mismatched, dirty, and the fridge was leaking so there was a big puddle in the middle of the kitchen the whole time.... More

We stayed here in early March on a mid-week 3 night trip. Had the whole B&B to ourselves. Our interaction was mostly with Madison who was a delight. She cooked delicious breakfasts and even made us one "to go" on request so that we could get on the trails a bit earlier. There was a small fridge available in the... More

Carrie, Thanks for hosting us in your wonderful B&B, and even trying to lock us in and keep us captive one day. We enjoyed everything! We loved the B&B, the perfect location, and viewing the night sky from your 2-person hammock. You were such good company, hope all goes well for you, Ian and Jane

Carrie is one cool lady she owns two places and manages another three. OK she has some help but she is the place. Her living room is at your disposal but don,t stray into her domaine of the kitchen otherwise there is coffee wine etc. all part of the deal. It is fairly easy to find up a rough track... More
