An oasis in a hot desert. It was just what we wanted. Being June, there were few people there. Many of the businesses were closed for the summer, or closed at noon. We came prepared and packed a picnic lunch for both days. We loved the area and enjoyed searching out all the wonderful sculptures scattered aver several miles just outside of the downtown area.

We arrived around 4 pm, not sure where to go.. apparently they sent the email after we left. Luckily we found someone. She informed us that the water had some issues, the sediment in the tank was causing the water to turn brown. She asked if we still wanted to stay as the water was essentially unusable. They offered a 10% discount, and apparently no one else stayed that night. So we decided to stay. It was very nice, we got a gallon of water, used whatever bottled water we could find and made the best of it. It was nice. The bed was comfy and our overall experience was good. We are making plans to return.. I do hope they fix the water issue.. that made it a little difficult but workable. We will return it was so much better than a hotel.
Had a nice view of the golf course. Even though the main road is right out front, really did not hear much traffic. Rooms however could be a little more sound proof but not bad enough where you can hear the next door persons conversation (unless they were on the LOUD side)
Food at the restaurant was good and so were the prices
Would go there again.
This is literally in the middle of no where, but that's part of the whole experience, to get away and relax. They remodeled a couple of years ago and it truly is a great getaway. The bar and restaurants close at 10 pm so if you're a midnight snacker, be sure to take your own snacks.

We enjoyed our stay in this lodge (home converted into a lodge). The character of the lodge, view, and seeing four deer running through the property after a fresh snow helped the ambiance. Our kids enjoyed the 2-bedroom suite with the loft and will probably talk about that room for a while. Caretaker Jim was a really nice man; the only staff you'll see during your stay.
I usually don't write reviews but this resort has all the amenities and everything on the resort is up to date, clean, and in perfect working order.
I did not find one thing wrong with this resort and for me that is about impossible.
I will recommend this place to anybody and will definitly go back!!!!!!
The desert dominates East County. Here, wildflowers bloom in the spring at the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. This isolated stretch of land is California’s largest state park. Nearby, soothing mineral waters welcome visitors at a pair of hot springs, one in Jacumba and one in Agua Caliente. Nestled in the Cuyamaca Mountains, the historic town of Julian offers a glimpse of Gold Rush California.
