Just got back from our two nights of lodging in Joshua Tree at your wonderful place! It will be hard to stay anywhere else after this. Absolutely PERFECT!!! Every single detail was wonderful…Even my son noticed and commented on things like the tiles around the windows and the little lantern hanging on the gatepost. The artistic details are incredible and really just made it look right out of a magazine. And don’t even get me started on the landscape! I know it’s natural and native, but still had so much thought put into it. I wish I could have you guys come design my yard for me! Anyway, thanks for the great time! I don’t know if I will ever get back to Joshua Tree, but if I do, it will be Spin and Margie’s where I stay! The Perfect Joshua Tree lodging.

Hi Spin and Margie,
Just wanted to take a moment to thank you for our stay in cabin #5 this past weekend. Everything (and I do mean EVERYTHING) was wonderful…from the décor to the views, to the peaceful tranquility and the serene surroundings. Thank you for making my husband’s birthday weekend magical…we anxiously await our return to your desert hideaway. Wishing you and Spin ALL the best! Warm Regards,

Dear Spin and Margie,
Thank you for an unforgettable 3-night stay. Your desert hideaway is a unique & perfect blend of privacy & remote landscape. Yet, the good and special things in life are present with all your attention to details! Our stay will always be a special reminder of comfort, intimacy and joy. We will come again.

Thanks for this little slice of heaven!

  • Bev & Dave (San Francisco)

Spin and Margie,
This place comes through as an exquisite labor of love.
Thanks for letting us have a part of it.

  • Mica, Michael, and Kai

We sat out in our courtyard on our last night and saw a shooting star.
This is Heaven – no waiting!
Thanks again,

  • Kitty and Mark (Vancouver, B.C.)

I can’t thank you enough for creating such a comforting and funky place – it really felt like home! Everything here is so welcoming and obviously a labor of love, down to the smallest details! And Drew, your photos are so beautiful and they set the mood for a stay here perfectly ….. I really appreciated all the hiking info. in the room, as well as the CD’s, books, and videos – you have truly thought of everything! I really can’t remember having stayed at a comfier, cuter place – I can’t wait to come back. Joshua Tree National Park is phenomenal, and you’ve created the perfect oasis away from my crazy east coast life! Being here was so inspiring… Bless You! Thanks Again,
P.S. I really dig the kitchen mermaid

your hide-a-way perfect!!!!!

Charming. Thank you for creating such a special place. We have loved every minute of the past few days and hope to be back soon. Thanks again for such a thoughtful and unique getaway.
Best Wishes,

  • Ken and Jen (Santa Barbara, Ca)

What a fabulous place to spend our “romantic getaway weekend.” You are obviously experienced travelers, as you’ve thought of everything, and I think we enjoyed it all – we’ll be back to #3 in the near future. Cheers,

  • Susannah and Antonio

As beautiful, tasteful, and joyous a place as we have ever been. We love Joshua Tree. We’ll be back.

  • Bruce and Ellen W. (Palo Alto, Ca)

Happy New Year Spin and Margie!
Everything is perfect – it was fun to notice every little tile, every new color, even the Joshua Tree hanging from the fan. Thanks,
P.S. Thanks for the toothpaste. Even world travelers do silly things & forget the essentials.

We used to spend our nights out in Joshua Tree in our VW Van, but this year we upgraded ot the Hideaway. I’m not sure we’re going to be able to go back to roughing it. It is rare that a hotel itself is part of the joy of traveling …. we’ll be back in the fall!

  • Kathy and John (L.A.) & Cristel (Seattle)

This is my third time at Spin and Margie’s – the 3rd place I’ve stayed in and they are all beautiful – the attention to detail is amazing from the great photos by Drew (a.k.a. Spin) to the teapot in the kitchen. A great escape from a hectic life in L.A. and the flowers this year were spectacular.

  • Susan R. (Los Angeles)

A place full of heart and care. I wish I could take it to our next destination.
