We just returned from our fourth trip to Nurturing Nest. It’s the perfect retreat from our busy lives. As other reviewers have mentioned, this is a small, simple, updated desert motel. Nothing too fancy, but just perfect for us. The rooms are attractive and comfortable. Free WiFi, but no TV – thankfully. Best of all are the two natural hot spring-fed pools, which are open 24-hours. We think that their in-door “hot” therapeutic pool is one of the best anywhere. Housed in a free standing enclosure with large windows on three sides, this pool appears large enough to accommodate twenty people, though there were never more than a couple of others in the pool with us and the retreat was completely full. The water comes out of the ground at a wonderful 105 degrees and there’s no sulfur smell! When you’re not soaking, you can float on one of the rafts or read sitting in one of the pool-side lounge chairs and be fully protected from the elements (it can be cold and windy in the desert!) The outdoor pool is also hot springs-fed and stays at about 90 degrees. Perfect for a swim and lots of places to relax in the sun by the pool. This was our New Year’s Eve trip and we splurged for room #7, which doesn’t have any common walls with any of the other rooms and has a king bed, kitchen, and private, shaded patio. It was great.
Ram and Sandy are wonderful, accommodating hosts. We’ll can't wait for our next visit!
