The Fresco Room, one of the lodge's three private , ensuite rooms is named after a spectacular painting , a copy of a fresco in a Venetian palazzo that hangs above its queen bed. You have an ensuite bathroom with shower and a secluded, covered patio with a bird's eye view of Turtle Canyon where the desert tortoises live.

The space
Our antique filled Lodge consists of three private, individually available, ensuite rooms with their own patios and bathrooms. Televisions in rooms for casting but no on air programming. A large hot tub overlooking Mt. San Jacinto is a great spot to relax and watch the stars. There is a large shared sitting area and breakfast table where you can meet other guests or curl up on a sofa and read a book from our library! See lots more photos when you look up Casa de los Desperados online!

Guest access
Hike the trails in our backyard ( you are in a nature preserve!) or chill on a sun drenched patio. Our dogs will be thrilled to keep you company! The Wildlands Preserve is at the end of our lane near the Pacific Crest Trail head and the Whitewater River is just across the road from us.

Other things to note
There are no cooking facilities for guests.
