Dine in the beautiful newly renovated clubhouse country club dining and cocktails. Folks that have stayed here comment "the posted pictures don't do the property justice" or "Exceeded Expectations". I think that's what we are all looking for in an escape. Exceeded expectations. You will not find another like this in Borrego. A star gazers paradise with large unobstructed views from every direction. Situated on a very private lot. Inside the home there is 3000 over square feet of living space in a very open floor plan, 3 large Bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, vaulted wood ceilings an outdoor shower off the master suite, a wonderfully large Master bath/dressing area with walk in closets and step in soaking tub.

Great for cooking, entertaining or just hanging out. The living area has a baby grand piano for guests use, large vaulted ceilings, huge seating area and a beautiful natural stone hearth gas fireplace to enjoy on cool desert nights.

Step outside to the back of the home under the protected canopy and take in the best views of the jewel of California Deserts, Day or Night. Beautiful 360 degrees of blue skies, mountains and deserts.

Lounge in the pool or spa all day while taking in the views. The pool and hot tub are seasonally available heated at an additional cost (propane is very expensive here). There is something and somewhere on this property for everyone to enjoy, together or find your own space.

The Country Club now open, the highly acclaimed Fazio Golf Course is available in to our guests (please contact the pro shop for green fees and tee times) as well, our guests can enjoy the 2 best restaurants in Borrego, Rams Hill and Caza Del Zorro next door.

We believe this property caters to most folks looking for a get away. It is perfectly situated for Hikers and adventurers, those looking to enjoy the beautiful desert sun, cyclists, off road jeepers, folks looking to just get away from the cold. We love animals, but Pets must be pre-approved and listed on the application.

Review of Prop 444641

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time and enjoyed several excursion to the State Park, Palm Canyon and esp. Slot Canyon. We were a bit disappointed that we were not able to heat the pool due to a lack of propane fuel since that was one of our primary reasons for renting the property. The spa was great tho and it saved the day.

Had a great time

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed in this house, and we enjoy it very much. We typically travel with two other couples who have similar expectations and activities, and we have been very comfortable here. The view is marvelous and the accommodations spacious. Peter is a great host and very responsive to any issues that might arise. We intend to stay here for our future trips to Borrego Springs.

Beautiful escape in the desert with incredible night time skies!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay--dipping in the pool, watching meteors in the skies filled with a million stars, relaxing in our very private paradise! We brought a friend from Pennsylvania who had never experienced the desert before and was amazed by this different world. Perfect home for three couples to enjoy a weekend escape or for a family get together. Well-stocked with kitchen equipment and a truly beautiful living room.

Peaceful Paradise in Borrego

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this beautiful home over 4th of July was outstanding! Since our two grandsons were with us, we spent a lot of time swimming, playing basketball in the pool, and other outdoor activities; including barbecuing. The view from the backyard is breathtaking! However, we also enjoyed the spacious home when we weren't outside! My husband, a musician, loved being able to play the baby grand in the living room! The owner, Peter Cochran, was very attentive; quickly answering any questions we had about our stay. We definitely will return to this peaceful paradise in Borrego!

Weekend Stay at Rams Hill Drive House in May 2017

  • 4 of 5

This was our second spring staying at Peter's house in Borrego. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay this spring---just as we did the year before. The 3-bedrooms (with adjoining bathrooms) were perfect for our three families (our two daughters and their husbands). The view is magnificent and we really like the quiet (you're not aware of anyone else in the general vicinity). The golf course (Rams Hill) is a nice layout, well kept and quite challenging. Peter is responsive if you need anything. For any family wanting to enjoy the layed-back Borrego life-style, we highly recommend staying here for the weekend.

About Peter Cochran

Our Family of 4 lives in Laguna Beach. We leave these pets in the desert for you folks to enjoy. This property has been in our family for years, our boys are getting older and busier so we have decided to share. We are an avid outdoor family. We have hiked, biked, run, walked, golfed, off-roaded and jeeped many of the beautiful areas in this desert. Just ask, and we will likely be able to point you in the right direction.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From our home Guest-book:

Yo, Cochran's,

This was our "family of friends" annual get-together. It could not have turned out any better. The home is perfectly set up for 3 couples, and thanks for seeing it it that it's completely outfitted...for everything.

We'll be back! Tony & Jo & friends
