If you've ever wanted to stay in a cool vintage trailer, this is heaven. The pool is warm year round. Borrego Springs has warm sunny weather year round so if you love the outdoors you will enjoy staying here. We have guests that have been coming back for years.
It sits on its own space about 200 yds from the pool, Jacuzzi, bathrooms, public showers. The trailer has 2 windows and has a very airy feeling when the ceiling fan is turned on. Spectacular views of the mountains on three sides. Even though to the untrained eye the desert looks dry and desolate, once you spend a night in the middle of it all you may hear the howl of a coyote in the distance, in the morning you might wake up to the sounds of different kinds of birds, while sitting outside drinking your morning coffee you'll see rabbits, humming birds, lizards etc.
Borrego Springs is a dark sky community meaning there are no bright white lights and people use deep orange lights on homes and buildings so that the stars and moon can shine as bright as possible. Stargazers come from all over the world the view the incredible night sky in Borrego Springs
