High Desert Eden

"We had the most amazing time at High Desert Eden! Our hosts, Robin and Max, were wonderful and the scenery was quite simply breathtaking. Photographs cannot even begin to do this landscape justice. The sights were incredible, and Robin and Max were a delight. We are from New York and could not have asked for a more romantic getaway. The first thing my boyfriend said each morning was, "It's amazing how quiet it is out here," because we are so used to the buzz of a big city!"

"I  have stayed at the 'casita in the desert' several times now, and each time it's just a magical experience.  I write, hike, relax in the peaceful silence of this secluded desert land. The casita is just the right size for comfort and coziness, and the unobstructed view of the stars at night will take your breath away. There are no words to describe the night sky overhead, and the serenity of the land will sooth your mind. Max and Robin are excellent hosts who leave you to your peace and quiet.  You're on your own time -- turn off your cell phone, leave the city behind if only for a few days. But it's enough to re-generate your soul."
