    The B&B is very close to Joshua Tree National Park. Innkeeper is extremely nice, and cooks an awesome breakfast (really!). There is a nice overall atmosphere of peacefulness surrounding the B&B. Highly recommended.

    Have stayed with Carrie for at least 10 years. Always enjoyable and positive experience. Breakfasts are outstanding and sure to please. You feel like a member of the "family" rather than just a stranger....sight seeing suggestions, restaurants to try, walks/drives of interest. Highly recommended!
