This winter vacation hot spot features spring-fed pools averaging about 87 degrees Fahrenheit, the lowest USGA Golf course on earth and Xanadu Gardens. It’s also a natural home for wildlife such as kit fox, desert cottontail, coyotes, roadrunners and numerous species of birds.


Dating back to 1927, the historic property offers two lodging options, the luxurious AAA Four-Diamond The Inn at Death Valley and the family-friendly The Ranch at Death Valley, both of which recently received a $200 million renovation.

The Inn attracts travelers and celebrities, including stars like Marlon Brando, Clark Gable and Carole Lombard, and more recently the cast and crew of a Star Wars film. The Inn features 66 rooms with modern amenities and landscape photographs, bringing the delights of Death Valley into the rooms. For travelers looking for total privacy, stay in one of the new 22 Inn Casitas or 80 Ranch Cottages.


At night, enjoy delicious local fare with cactus, citrus, dates and pomegranate from the garden while enjoying the desert air and Panamint Mountains. Guests can watch the sunset from one of the stone patios or admire the Milky Way from the Stargazers Deck. End the night with a cold one at Last Kind Words Saloon, a cowboy-themed bar with Old West décor.
