I stumbled upon Goats place while looking for a hotel in Ridgecrest while at work. I sent the link to my wife because I liked what I saw. My wife calls me back two minutes later and say she knows Goat (Goat is the owners name). Goat was a pro motocross rider back in the 80's and my wife was... More

I have stayed with "goat" when he 1st bought the place a few years ago. It is clean, maintains a historical significance and rooms and ammenities are great. It is truley an oasis in the desert. I have never been there on the weekends when most travelers venture through, as I'm a sales engineer for the mines and Naws China... More

We stayed here recently and it was great! Randsburg itself is full of surprises, and this place is another one of them. The cabin was wonderful with everything you could need. It was clean, cozy and had lots of space. We had a patio area in the back with a beautiful view of the desert and a deck in front... More

If you want to see an amazing town from the 1800's go to Randsburg. It's so well preserved we couldn't believe it. The Cottage Hotel is a warm,comfortable place to stay. Scrappy makes you feel so welcomed that she has your name on the door of your room. Randsburg is to dirt bikes and quad runners , what Sturgis is... More

My husband and I have stayed here before in one of the fabulously renovated old cabins. On this last visit we spent four days and three nights in the Quilt Room of the hotel. The room was super clean, inviting and comfortable. The service provided by Scrappy, Goat and Ellie was 5-star and the entire time we were made to... More

When we arrived to check in, Scrappy showed us through the B&B facility, which looked quite clean and comfortable. Scrappy is wonderful; friendly and helpful without being intrusive. Our family of four spent one night at Hill Street Cabin a few blocks from the main B&B. The cottage appeared very rustic on the outside, and we were pleasantly surprised to... More

Driving late one night between Hwy 395 and Ridgecrest in the Mojave Desert we stumbled upon this gem. I decided to drop by Randsburg - an old mining town that still lives - just to check it out as my Grandmother and Great aunt did some growing up there over 100 years ago. I see that there is a "Motel"... More

Completely in the style of this old living museum of a village, the Cottage Hotel is something special. Entering the lobby takes you 100 years back in time. Called the staff because there was a small mix-up, but they handled it perfectly. We stayed in the Hill St. Cabin, which was a nicely improvized piece of metal and wood moulded... More

You don't have to be Prospector Pete or Dirt Bike Bill to love The Cottage in Randsburg, although those aren't drawbacks either. Set in a truly historic mining camp - about $5 BILLION in gold (todays prices) taken out since the 1890s - and massive "off road vehicle" areas, The Cotage makes Randsburg is a totally fun place to visit...
