This was truly a wonderful experience from start to finish! Gary was very accommodating when I called to book at the last minute. My fortune that they had a room available! And not only that, but they were kind enough to upgrade me for my night.
I was making a brief visit to the area for the sole purpose of crossing the Joshua Tree National Park off my bucket list. I could not have chosen a better place to rest my head! The grounds are a lush haven in the middle of the desert offering a remarkable contrast in landscapes. It was very relaxing to walk around and take in the scenery. The weather was accommodating and we were able to have breakfast (delicious praline French toast!) outside on the patio. Even during my short visit, I met lovely guests on the grounds.
If you are ever in the area, I highly recommend Roughley Manor - you will not be disappointed!
Hint: Please use the directions in their website. My GPS took me on another route but Jan sent me in the right direction when I called them.
