When you drive into Spin & Margie's, you are welcomed with vintage Route 66 signage, old license plates, barrels and cactus, and a "WELCOME" sign that makes you feel like you are! Try and arrive during the day so you can really enjoy the ambience in those first few moments. Plus, you might miss the turnoff in the desert darkness.... More

Spin and Margie's was beautiful. It is decorated with such care, and it is clean, pretty, and a fun place to spend a few days. I came for a week and stayed in the cabin, and ended up staying an extra night because it was so relaxing. The hosts are kind people who care a lot about your comfort. I... More

Stayed in room 3, which was brilliant. There was plenty of space in the room, which included a kitchen. There was also a private terrace to sit on during the day when it was too busy to explore the national park. Due to the elevation above sea level it can get windy, which can create some noise. The gardens are... More

We stayed in Suite #1. The Suite was spacious, comfortable and clean, with some very cute and unique decor. I am very happy we stayed here rather than any of the motels in town. The unit had a full kitchen and was fully stocked with kitchenware. There is some noise from the cars passing on the highway, but I imagine... More

This was our first trip to Joshua Tree and Spin and Margie's. The guest cabin we stayed in was lovely - great decor, everything you could need including a map of the area, places to visit, wifi...even a torch! We had a fantastic stay, and our host was so kind and accommodating. Not only did she phone the fabulous Pappy... More

This was our second visit to Spin and Margie's. We stayed in the Desert Rambler, one of three suites that has a private courtyard. This time, we brought our food, wine, and cocktail supplies with us and enjoyed the quiet, secluded retreat we were looking for. We'll be back again for a longer stay.

This place is awesome. There are 5 guest cabins you can stay in, each decorated in a sort of Santa Fe chic. Outside, the landscaping is more Far West. There is a little communal courtyard where you can bbq or make a campfire. You're between the East and West Entrances of Joshua Tree but not far from restaurants and stores... More

We stayed at Spin and Margie's as our base for the Perseid meteor shower recently and had a fabulous time. We stayed in Suite #3, which had a private patio. The suite was thoughtfully decorated and very comfortable and the kitchen was surprisingly well equipped (microwave, colander, tray, bottle opener, knife sharpener, dishwashing soap-- everything we needed). We appreciated the... More

We used Spin and Margie's for a week long sewing retreat. What a fabulous spot! Quiet, very clean, and well cared for inside and out. The property is close enough to get essentials in town, but far enough out to feel the calm. We were there long enough to see Mindy, Drew and CJ several times...they are fun people, who... More
