About the property

Perfect Retreat For Couples With Magnificent Views W/King Bed & Kitchen


Your historic home built from rocks is beautiful inside and out. The special feeling from the home and surrounding area is the only property in Palm Springs with a retreat feeling. You can check in and never have the desire to leave. We make all arrangements for total privacy. The home is spacious and the patio is over 450 sq. feet for the outdoor living Palm Springs offers.

The Palm Canyon and Earl Henderson Hiking Trails are steps away for hiking and horseback riding. The Palm Canyon Wash is a great for riding a mountain bike. The Indian Canyons Golf Resort and the Famous Indian Canyons - unique to the world are a stone throw away.

Your rock house at Happy Canyon Ranch is the best get-a-way with hiking and mountain biking out your front door.

This historic site was built between 1929 to 1932 and will be your totally private oasis. The famous Indian Canyons and the Indian Canyon's Golf Resort featuring 36 holes of golf is just up the Palm Canyon Wash from your private residence. Here is a link to Palm Springs Life Magazine May 2013 Issue about our wonderful neighborhood -

The rock house at Happy Canyon Ranch is the perfect place to unwind and have total privacy.

The patio with 360 degree views of the city lights and the mountain is 375 feet of patio space for your enjoyment. There are 2 lounge chairs, two tables with 4 chairs each and side tables for beverages. Two (2) umbrellas for shade.

Rock House at Happy Canyon Ranch Restaurant Suggestions:

I have eaten at Morgan's at the La Quinta Hotel & Resort and it is very nice, but a :25 minute drive.

Closer and romantic I would suggest Le Vallauris

We are very spoiled in Palm Springs. Locals in Palm Springs do not drive to Palm Desert and Palm Desert Locals do not drive to Palm Springs. But you my guests are welcome to drive & explore on your vacation. When my children and I go to La Quinta we stay at the La Quinta Hotel kind of a Staycation.

We have excellent restaurants not mentioned so my favorites:


#1: Spencer's 3 course lunch with coffee - $19.50 ++

#2: Sherman’s Deli - Potato Latkes with Pastrami & Apple Sauce & Sour Creme

#3: Everywhere Else Downtown
