Spin and Margie's Desert Hideaway was the perfect nest for me during a business/family trip to JT. The courtyard provided a wonderful gathering place for a family and friends dinner, and my room was my very comfortable quiet space just steps away. Lovely, artistically designed rooms and grounds for relaxing. Kitchenette allowed me to relax over a quiet breakfast in...

We loved this funky, unique, comfortable inn! This was the perfect place to come home to after a day in the park. . we highly recommend it! The rooms were spacious and the bed was super comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed to make a meal. And the grounds themselves were super cute. . definitely a hidden gem!

We recently stayed in suite #1, the largest suite on the property (sleeps 4). It was clean, nicely decorated, well maintained, with a lovely private patio. It was spacious (except the bathroom -- pretty cramped) and had three doors to the outside. The kitchen was very well stocked with a good selection of plates, cups, pots and pans, etc, so...

The grounds and rooms are intimate, well appointed and tended with care. This place is special and a great place from which to explore Joshua Tree. We especially enjoyed the garden and our own private patio.

I loved absolutely everything about Spin and Margie's! The proximity to Joshua Tree made it easy to hike at the park in the morning, return to our suite in the middle of the day for a snack and rest, and then head back to the park for a late afternoon hike. The amount of attention and care that Spin and...

This was our fourth time staying at Spin n Margie's. Obviously we love the place. This trip we even had time to enjoy the barbecue and bocce ball court with family and friends. We always visit once a year but it's not enough. Between Joshua Tree national Park and the homestead at Spin and Marjie's, we could come 2-3 times...

We stayed in Suite 4 and loved everything about it! It was a great place to hang out between hikes and after. From the basics( comfortable bed, pillows, great shower and equipped kitchen) to the extras( beautiful photos on the wall, lovely dishes in the kitchen, private back patio and whimsical grounds), it was the perfect place to stay while...

This unique property lived up to all the great reviews. Very convenient to both entrances to Joshua Tree. Our suite (the Desert Rambler, Rm 1) was huge and had everything we needed. Kitchen was better stocked than expected, with oil, spices, coffee/tea and more than the usual "pots and pans" you find in a condo. We appreciated the coolness of...

We absolutely loved Spin and Margie's! We stayed in a cabin with a patio, which was perfect for our two years old. The location is great (not only close to the Downtown area, but also to Noah Purifoy and the Northern entrance to the park, much less crowded), the property is beautiful and the grill area is lovely. Highly recommended!

“Cabin 5 does not have a kitchen but it has a small fridge and coffee maker. It is probably the most private as it is free standing.”
