Borrego Springs is surrounded by the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, the largest State Park in the contiguous U.S. The property is minutes from world class, unforgettable desert hiking trails. You can choose to go for a casual stroll or a more strenuous climb. Other than world-class hiking, the park provides mountain & road biking, off-road motoring, golf, and amazing star-gazing. The State Park has lecture series and hikes addressing wildlife, star-gazing, local geology, and paleontology. Easy drive / hikes to ancient rock art and indigenous dwellings.
Borrego Springs has an active artists community. Art walks / openings are held regularly in-season, lots of galleries to drop in on. Local art scene includes a wonderful series of large metal sculptures of prehistoric animal life.

Within a reasonable driving distance you could visit Julian, an old gold mining town nowadays famous for its apple pies. Cleveland National Forest, the Salton Sea area are also nearby. If you desire more nature then you could hop over to Joshua Tree National Park. If you miss the city or you wish to visit our beautiful city, San Diego, with all its attractions, then you can be there within a two hour scenic ride.
Borrego Valley Airport is located approximately 5.5 miles from the property. It has a pilot-activated, lighted, 5000-foot runway, fueling and space for overnight and longer stays. It is student pilot-friendly and has late-model rental cars available, a restaurant and information on numerous other activities. It also offers the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park Sky Trail that gives pilots and their passengers a chance to enjoy natural and historic features of the park, many of which can only be viewed from the air. The Borrego Valley Airport has 99% clear skies. We hope you will enjoy staying in Borrego Springs at our vacation home and return for many more vacations. Welcome to Borrego. :)

Owner info

About the owner: I am a retired person just starting on my 7th decade. I'm married to my lovely wife, Brigitta (in the picture) for over 28 years. We have a daughter, Ashley, and a son, Edward, both of whom are in medical school. Hopefully they'll be able to treat and cure their aging father. :) We moved to Southern California from Canada fifteen years ago and love it. We visited the desert a couple of times with some prejudice, I might add, but the more we came the more we enjoyed it. Outdoor activities, the serenity and beauty of the desert, the air and the sky are all wonderful here. I find it healing, very relaxing to spend time here. The desert air, the stars at night, the whole environment is magical. There are places to visit, sights to see, trails to discover. It's an experience you'll want to return to. I hope you'll enjoy it too.

Why the Owner Chose Borrego Springs, CA, USA:
My family and I just wanted to have a desert retreat, but still have the amenities and conveniences of a town setting. This property is well located and comfortable. It has charm and character. The neighbors are friendly and quiet. All amenities are within a short distance, yet the desert is at our doorstep.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
All the beauty, serenity, the air, the night sky, the magic of the desert is here for you. I like to sit out on the patio in the evening and watch as the sun sets over the mountains, lean back in your chair and marvel at the stars, or the morning sky at sunrise. Sometimes our friendly neighbor, the road runner visits. In the evening a coyote may pop out from behind a bush. Don't worry they respect humans, but remember they are part of the wildlife here. It is the perfect place if your are looking for a relaxing, quiet location. But it also offers a lot of opportunity for an active lifestyle in the surrounding areas. We are in the De Anza Borrego Desert with trails to discover, sights to see, and to play and enjoy the desert. (Ample information is available on the internet.)
