TravelPod Member ReviewsRoughley Manor Twentynine Palms
As I left the Joshua Tree forest and followed my GPS's directions across the desert, a foreboding came upon me that I was either very lost or I had made a very bad lodging error. I was literally in the middle of a vast desert, on a dirt road, with only small desert dwellings in my view. It was then I saw an Oasis. Literally, the Roughley Manor is set in the middle of an Oasis of extremely large palm trees forming the perimeter of the most delightful setting.
I enter the main stone home to the smell of baking chocolate chip cookies. I'm home. I had elected to stay in one of the two suites within the main house. The evenings would be chilly and there is a separate living room with a fireplace. The perfect setting for a romantic evening with my honey. The Magnolia Suite was well appointed, spacious and tastefully decorated. My wife, who has a keen eye, was truly impressed by the decorating of the entire home and a peak into a couple of the cottages that are on the grounds.
This home has been restored and maintained with meticulous loving care. It is a labor of love to attain and maintain the high quality I observed. Walking the grounds is like being in a fairytale. You could see the signs of attentive landscaping professionals everywhere and pathways were all recently cleaned and raked. Outdoor furnishings and settings are extremely comfortable and provide venues for couples or small groups to gather. The water features accent the entire setting to be just perfect.
Breakfast - The two we enjoyed were out of this world. Artfully crafted, the presentation and taste was five star quality.
I highly recommend a stay at the Roughley Manor to anyone who plans to visit the Joshua Tree National Forest or who has any other reason for being in the area

... for an interesting morning ride. With few options, we head west to California on the I10 and encounter gusting crosswinds that limited my speed to a pedestrian 70mph which separated me from the herd. My only concern with this situation was - my mobile was on recharge in a mate's saddlebag as I watch them disappear over the horizon. We did however meet up at the General Patton Museum in Chiriaco sometime later...much to my relief. After lunch with the General, we left the ...
... take the time. But it looked awesome, so I made a mental note to come back later.
- Skull Rock: This was an awesome rock that looked like a skull, including two eye sockets and a nose. The rock was cool, but the surrounding rocks were even cooler. There was also a nature trail here, and I made another note to come back later.
- Queen Valley: This was the first real joshua tree forest that I drove through, and it was incredible. It was a ...
... Park as the destination. Many miles of bleak desert landscape follow, with the temperature hovering between 106 and 107. We finally arrive at the town of 29 Palms, which is the southwestern entry point to the park (29 Palms sounds lush and lavish, but those 29 trees appear to be the only greenery in the whole city).
Initial impressions of the park are not that great....still hot and more of the same desert. But we gain ...
... with the top down, we headed onwards to Joshua Tree National Park. Driving through the desert towns alongside the park, you notice that the towns are basically roadside cafes, motels and diners. We stayed in the town of Joshua Tree, at the Joshua Tree Inn, famous for visits by Gram Parsons, who also died there.
After taking advice from the Park Ranger (who looked remarkably like the Park Ranger from Yogi Bear) we entered the park. There is definitely ...
Sadly Mimi couldn't be hired on a one way deal, so with Mimi safely back home in San Francisco, and with Dan needing to be in Palm Springs for a work meeting, we found ourselves a cheap Chinese bus company to take us down to LA. We then picked ourselves up the smallest Chevy on the market and, like moths to the flame, we headed back East towards the desert again.
I’m not sure if the laws about giving way are different in the US, ...
