We visited Roughley Manor just after Christmas, a surprise birthday present from my husband, after I had mentioned I would love to see it at that time of year. We were not disappointed. It was just beautiful- like being in a winter wonderland!
This time we stayed in the house, in the Campbell Suite and had a superb bedroom, lounge and bathroom all to ourselves. Jan and Gary were away, but we were looked after superbly by Caren and Kathy. The breakfasts are always very special, set in an amazing dining room and the tea and cookies were as mouthwatering as ever!
A bonus to this visit was that we saw one of the horned owls - we had missed them last time.
We, of course, visited the beautiful Joshua Tree National Park, just a few miles away. To come back to Roughley, after a day's walking, was like returning home. It is truly an oasis and a haven.
We hope to return on our next visit.

Room Tip: We have stayed in the Cholla and Campbell Suites and would recommend both.

Comfy beds, elegantly furnished & quiet rooms, delicious fresh-cooked meals and gracious hosts!
I went for a scrapbook retreat with 24 ladies and the scrapbook room was spacious. We had personal tables & lamps, a kitchen and a very short walk from the main house. Available masseuse was a nice amenity. There was no fitness center but the grounds and surrounding area were great for walking at this time of year (late winter). It was worth the drive.

Room Tip: I stayed in one of the suites in the main house which I liked because of the fireplaces, books, co...

Spent a couple of days with my wife at Roughley Manor while visiting Joshua Tree National Park. We stayed in the Palms Room, which is in a separate building on the property. The room was large, tastefully decorated and with almost every amenity one could ask for. The furnishings seemed fairly new and spotlessly clean.

Gary, the owner, was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was excellent in the main house, in a comfortable large room, with a working fireplace.

Can't say we loved the town of Twentynine Palms, but we would definitely stay again at Roughley Manor again.

The Cholla casita was large, well equipped and very comfortable. This is an oasis in the original sense of the word! The grounds are inviting and open for exploration. Breakfasts are homemade, but too heavy on sugar for my taste. I would like to see some choices for those of us who don't really want to eat whipped cream and syrup at 8:00 am.

I was in 29 Palms for four days for work, but also did some exploring of the local area. This is by far the best place to stay in 29 Palms. It is a real oasis, surrounded by massive palms, beutiful swimming pool and lovely grounds. Gary and Jan own and run Roughley and do a flawless job, the rooms are extremely comfortable, the breakfast delicious, extremely knowledgeable and all/any requests (no matter how small) are taken care of immediately. Roughley is well located, close to the USMC base, Joshua Tree National Park and the tow of 29 Palms. This is a great option if you are in town for work or taking a look around the area. Make sure you check out the owls that are resident at the manor also. I am looking forward to bring the family back with me!

My husband and I spent two wonderful nights on a work/leisure trip to 29 Palms and Joshua Tree NP. This B&B is among the best I have been to. The staff was gracious, helpful and knowledgeable--the owners were away on a vacation, but their subs were terrific-helpful hints on dining options and directions. Our room was bright and airy, warm, clean and comfortable. The doors opened right out to the pool and jacuzzi. The breakfast was unmatched, terrific food and great service. Coffee and tea and pastries are always available, and the main room has reading material about the area as well as games and other books. The B&B is just down the road from Joshua Tree NP and not far from the USMC base. We will come back here as often as we can.
