Breakfast by a waterfall, being eyeballed by Hummingbirds, crisp white cotton sheets, attentive yet discreet staff, a la carte breakfast - a little piece of Europe in the middle of the desert. Quite superb - an absolute must!

We had a brief but memorable stay at the Willows this week, stepping back in time to a more genteel and romantic era. Highlights were the beautiful, peaceful rooms, the charming innkeepers at our beck and call with wine and hors d'oeuvres at 5.30 pm, and an excellent breakfast served on Wedgwood by the waterfall. Oh, and getting inspiration on... More

The Willows is in a class of its own as far as accommodation and service in the US is concerned. We were reminded of our favourite European haunts during our stay. Its all about understated class and the Willows hits the spot. Don't miss out if you're planning to stay in the Palm Springs area.

This was my second visit to the Willows, and I would return in a heartbeat. The setting is serene, the location central and each room has its own charming personality. I love sitting on the balcony just off the living room, sipping morning coffee and seeing the sun shining on the mountains. The evening wine gathering is a nice way... More

The Willows is a beautiful escape from the outside world. The grounds are wonderful and if you enjoy photography, you will get some of your best shots right on the property. The waterfall in the dining room greats you each morning along with the most amazing breakfast. The service couldn’t be better. Gordon and Dave are available to assist with... More

We enjoyed a weekend at the Willows in December for a family gathering. Although Palm Springs is only a 2 hour drive for us, we have enjoyed spring break in the desert for over 20 years...yet we had no idea the Willows existed. What a charming and peaceful bed and breakfast. The location is perfect allowing you to walk to... More

Everything about the Willows with it's colorful history is perfect. The staff - warm, helpful and friendly - and steady, the same dear faces greet me each year - even remembering I like syrup with my bacon. The included breakfast is a gourmet delight with tables set to view the waterfall. Evening wines and appetizers are tasty and fun -... More

Our parents reserved practically the entire property for family to celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary. The Willows (and staff) created the most amazing experience for us all. We stayed in the Marion Davies room - I will definitely take that room again! But I did visit four additional rooms and they all had their own story and warmth. I would... More

From the moment you are escorted into the gated parking lot, you will enjoy a most tranquil, historic, beautiful, secluded, luxurious, peaceful setting. You will feel transported back to 1924 with the beautiful period furniture and original architecture and appointments. The staff caters to your every need. The room accommodations are exquisite. The food is incredible.

We just stayed at The Willows for the second time and we are already planning our next trip back. It is an amazing place. The gourmet breakfast in a beautiful room is lovely and the evening wine and snacks offers the perfect opportunity to visit with other guests. The innkeepers are all fantastic and they make you feel so comfortable... More
