If you want a standard hotel with generic service then don't stay here! This place is AMAZING with the most fantastic hosts. It is an escape; the outdoor shower is a great way to start the day and things just carry on from there. A couple of days here will make you feel like you have been away for weeks! If you are going anywhere near Joshua Tree, Palm Springs or Pioneer Town then stay here - you will love it.

Where do we begin! THE most welcoming hosts we could of asked for, greeted by four of the sweetest dogs on arrival. Gary and Gelina couldn't of done more for us, we had a drink in the saloon, a buggy ride around the ranch as well as getting to feed and play with all their beautiful (URL HIDDEN) really is like no where else in the world. We cannot wait to come back next time and stay in our wonderfully quirky room above the horses. Thank you so much Gary and Gelina! X

A really special place run by a fantastic and welcoming couple. Great views, great energy. Ate at Pappy and Harriet's which is a short drive away. Enjoyed Budweiser in the saloon on our arrival with Garry. Didn't want to leave.

We had a fantastic time staying at the love nest and the ranch. I definitely recommend this completely unique stay to others! Explore and the ranch and hang out in the salon, but be weary of Galiena's margaritas, delicious but surprisingly strong. I hope I can visit again xxxx

Unbelievable place and room. It was amazing. The ranch is beautiful and the location is great. The hosts were extremely helpful and definitely went the extra mile for us. They explained to us what there was the area and showed us a pretty epic view. The room is amazing. Extremely cozy and very beautiful. Would love to stay again.

What a unique desert get-away! Gary and Galiena have created an absolutely beautiful little ranch tucked away in the back hills of Morongo Valley. A great place to stay if you want to explore some of the surrounding desert communities, or even if you just want a weekend away from everything and hang out with G & G, Romeo the burro, Juliet the mini horse or the watchdogs - Doc Holiday, Wyatt Earp, Sasha, Puggy Sue and Gidget. Very centrally located for a weekend of desert roaming, only 20 minutes from Palm Springs, Yucca Valley or Joshua Tree, The "Love Nest" is a very unique, charming loft with a private deck situated above the barn where Romeo will provide your wake-up service. Very clean, private and absolutely beautiful! Gary and Galiena are very gracious and welcoming hosts, and obviously love to share their creation in the desert. We were visited at night on the deck by a very large owl, and heard an early morning serenade by coyotes down in the canyon. If you like animals, and want something completely different, the G&G Genuine Draft Horse Ranch is a truly memorable experience.

What best describes our life style here at the ranch is clean air, mega stars, mountains, hiking, privacy, and animals, all based on Brainstorms, middle of the night Ideas, creative minds, that leads us to; Labor of Love.

All the animals are rescue and live in Harmony. The healthy environment of fresh air, plant and animals is what has created this Desert Serenity.

Several of our favorite things to do in the evening is hitching up our Percheron horses, loading up the dogs, a few neighbors and all going for a ride in the hay-wagon, then end up in the Saloon for a refreshing beverage.
Hiking is very lucrative around here, taking the animals (including the goats) for a hike is always an adventure! Animals and Nature go hand in hand = equaling total therapy.

I like a variety of atmospheres. From our desert location, we have the ocean, and the mountains which are aprox. 2 1/2 hrs.away. Better yet the Palm Springs Tram is 20 minutes from the Ranch which then takes you up the mountain to instantly cooler weather.
So to go from one extreme to another is fun and we never get bored.
