When Garth started the Boulder Gardens 40 years ago,  he built small birdhouses for his friends to stay in when they visited him. They are 4'x8'x4'. Made of plywood and situated in the most beautiful areas.  They are simply made. No frills! Just a place to crawl into and stay with a roof over your head, and windows, that can fit two, with room for a small tent Just out side the front door. You will love the Birdhouse! Its a magical miracle place to stay. Having the Bird Houses available when all the other accommodations are full is a great treat for those wanting to do a simply stay at Garth's. And it's just a stone throw from Garths tepee, which he has lived in for 41 years. Come be with the community that runs and cares for Garth. Coffee in the tepee every day at 530 am made by Garth and friends. Meditate in the amazing boulder gardens, up against an ancient Pinion pine tree. So much to do, or not. Take a dry sauna and cold dip in the cement pond. Go for hikes around the 640 acres. I could go on and on, instead  come find out for yourself how amazing it is up here.

Warm Hugs, Kyle

We had an awesome stay and Kyle our host helped us find close parking and gave us cut up fruit and freeze squeezed grape fruit juice with some coffee and it was really great getting to sleep amongst the rocks in our bird house.

I loved my trip to Garth’s, have dreamt about it since returning home and look forward to going back. The land feels pristine and the community takes care of each other and their guests.

There’s a learning curve of about a day navigating around the property, and sleep can get tricky because when the sun comes up (in summer at least), that birdhouse warms up quick and you’ll be up and about your business. During the hot part of the day, the plunge pool and nearby boulder caves are essential. I did a tour and soundbath with Joshua Tree Alchemy while there, loved both, and so recommend that program if you’re staying at Garth’s.

Make friends with Garth while you’re there, he’s inviting and warm and reliably around his teepee.

I felt completely safe during my entire stay at Garth’s Boulder Garden. I can’t help but appreciate and mention how amazing everyone there is. The energy and vibration of this place is high, everyone is welcoming! The bird house is perfect if you’re looking for simplicity during your trip as it better serves as a place to rest, sleep, and keep your stuff. I will definitely be back.

Kyle and the whole team at Garth's Boulder Gardens are fantastic. Beautiful and real people with deep reverence for nature. Forever grateful for the experience. If you want to feel like you are off the grid and need a reset, this is the place. There are incredible hikes around with caves and even a petroglyph. The cosmic castle is fantastic and you will truly feel like you are in another world sleeping there. I can't wait to return. Garth created paradise in the desert.

Amazing desert oasis with a colorful cast of critters and characters. Mahalo Garth for providing this splendid slice of desert dwelling and to Kyle for keeping the plates spinning. I hope to return someday to explore further.
