Sweet place in the Joshua Tree desert
Carrie’s place near Joshua Tree (town & park) was very comfortable and convenient for our 4 day stay. Yes, the rooms are on the small side, but had everything we needed. The big lounge/kitchen room had a convenient refrigerator and microwave for guests, as well as some treats and wine. Carrie’s breakfasts were very good, and even better was conversing with her. She has a vibrant personality and has led an interesting life. I should mention that the desert landscaping around this place was as good or better than the desert cactus museum we saw in Palm Springs.

Super clean great amenities cabin
House is spacious and nice layout. King bed was bigger than a king! Slept 4 very comfortably. Kitchen had perfect cooking pans and amenities to prepare including marshmallow skewer for smores over the firepit. Games inside were fun! Beautiful property near restaurants and Joshua tree park entrance. Host very responsive. Thanks Carrie.

Loved our stay at the Beautiful Desert Lily!
Very close to Joshua Tree National Park. The grounds and B&B were beautifully decorated. Breakfast very good each morning. The Inn keeper was very friendly and gave good recommendations. The only thing keeping me from giving 5 stars was the bedroom was small and also the dirt road was rough coming in. Although the road was not an issue for us since we had a pickup truck it could be intimidating if you had a car and not accustomed to dirt roads.
We did a ton of hiking in the park and our favorite hike was the Panorama Loop and Warren Peak Trail (located near campground).

If we could give The Desert Lily 10 stars, we would! My boyfriend and I took a 24-hour getaway from LA and were so happy with absolutely everything Carrie had to offer! The bed was comfortable, the room was clean, and the property is just gorgeous. In the evening, we made s’mores over the fire pit, and Carrie provided all of the necessities to build the fire. Then we laid in the hammock and looked up at the incredible star-filled sky. It was completely quiet and perfectly peaceful. In the morning, I woke up and watched the sun rise, followed by Carrie making us the most delicious breakfast! We all ate together outside and had great conversation. Thank you, Carrie, for everything you do. We will be back!

Great Venue for my Daughter's wedding
My daughter wanted a destination wedding in Joshua Tree. I've never been there, but that's what she and her groom wanted. Great choice!
Joshua Tree is a bit remote, and this venue is up some dirt roads, but once you're there, the view is pretty amazing. Carrie is the perfect host and makes a delicious breakfast. You're close to the Park Entrance and not too far from town...or the obligatory dinner stop at Pappy & Harriet's.
There was plenty of room for our party of 140 guests, everyone had a fun time, the place is beautifully landscaped...it was everything my daughter was hoping for.
