Sacred Sands

Top choice b&b in Joshua Tree National Park

In an isolated, pin-drop-quiet spot, these two desert-chic suites are the ultimate romantic retreat, each with a private outdoor shower, hot tub, sundeck, 2ft-thick earthen straw-bale walls and sleeping terrace under the stars. There are astounding views across the desert hills and into the National Park. Owners Scott and Steve are gracious hosts and killer breakfast cooks.

It's 4 miles south of 29 Palms Hwy (via Park Bl), 1 mile west of the park entrance.
