A very unique spot that you just won't easily find anywhere else. Take it as a new experience rather than merely a place to stay. The surrounding terrain and what they've done with it will stay with you forever!!

I first visited the Desert View Tower when I was four years old. I ended up buying the Tower (and surrounding 99 acres) 12 years ago. Needless to say, I think the Desert View Tower and Boulder Park is a very special place.
