A singular desert oasis featuring a historic inn and family-friendly ranch.
This unique resort combines two distinct accommodations: a beautiful, stone-clad 1927 inn and a casual ranch with guest rooms, cabins and camping. Rooms at both lodgings are stylish and comfy, though those at the inn are more upscale, done in modern Southwest décor. The freestanding pool bungalow is filled with character, with stone walls and beam ceilings. The ranch once served as home to the Borax 20-mule teams, and there is a Borax museum on-site. The resort features the world's lowest-elevation golf course at 214 feet below sea level (an unusual experience as the ball reacts strangely at this altitude) and a swimming pool fed with naturally warm mineral water. Steakhouse fare can be enjoyed at the popular Wranglers Steakhouse, and casual meals are served at the Forty-Niner Café. For fine dining, the inn's house restaurant is open seasonally. The resort has its own airstrip if you want to fly in. And the Death Valley National Park surroundings make for fascinating day trips.
