 The large 18' diameter Bell Tent is furnished with thrift store furniture. We are now operating with a BYOB!!!Bring Your Own Bedding Policy!! As well BWOL bring your own lighting..... and BYOB ...bring your own 8 D batteries for the fan. The Bell tent sits in a  surrounded by boulders. Its has a queen size bed and an 8 foot couch and a round table.  A very special spot, for sure one of the most beautiful desert wilderness imaginable.  For almost 40 years now, Garth has been creating this privately owned desert oasis available for folks to make a spiritual connection to nature ever since its beginning in the early 8o's.  Located on 640 acres of pristine desert stargazing wilderness with Joshua trees, massive  boulder outcroppings,  long views and open night skies everywhere all over the property. When hiking you may discover caves,  petroglyphs, crystal gardens, peacocks, frogs, birds, and much more.  Garth's Boulder Gardens. Amazing!

! Reminder: its gets hot in the summer at the most 100 degrees, so bring 8 D batteries for the fan we provide. A power cell to pug if into. And Its get cold in the winter so be ready, or you may rent a heater and propane from us to stay warm.  Okay see you soon!  Kyle

Was looking for a quick weekend getaway for my birthday and couldn’t have asked for a better place. Everyone on the property is friendly and more than willing to make sure you are comfortable. The tent was clean and secluded enough to have some quiet time. The propane fire pit kept us warm and comfy at night. The stars were beautiful. Will definitely be back when they days are a little bit cooler. Only wished we had more time to wander more around the beautiful property.

You've never seen anywhere more magical. There are endless places to wander and works of art to discover. The people are helpful and kind. I have stayed in several tents like this and I have to say we've never stayed in one cleaner. I couldn't recommend this place enough.

Garth’s Boulder Gardens is the perfect place to unwind in nature. Take a hike, read a book, stare at a rock... and just enjoy the quiet. Very low/no tech environment (this is not a wifi and plumbing kind of place) which makes it very conducive to meditation. There is a vibrant community of permanent and transient residents at the Gardens, please be respectful of their space. Kyle is a font of useful information about the grounds and surrounding area and after that... you’re on your own. The bell tent is capacious and nicely furnished (bring your own bedding), and provides a pleasant indoor/outdoor interface.
