Well, not actually a desert - but a high plains ranch retreat. The cottage is very very close to the Chiracahua National Monument, and a great place to stay with all the modern conveniences. The cottage is furnished with great attention to detail with luxurious towels and linens, comfortable beds, a great shower and fantastic views. Diana was a wonderful host and even had fresh farm eggs available. A great place to get away from it all without sacrificing creature comforts. There is no cell service or tv so if you can't live without it this is not the place for you. But you will miss the awesome sunsets and sunrises and starlit nights!
