An elegant hideaway since 1927, The historic Inn at Death Valley still pampers every guest. Once the exclusive desert escape for such Hollywood elites as Marlon Brando, Clark Gable, and Carole Lombard, The Inn is bringing the elegance of Old Hollywood back after its $100 million renaissance.

Escape and reclaim your senses as you relax near the spring-fed pool (an always inviting 87 degrees), stroll through date palm gardens to the bubbling melody of natural springs, watch a glorious sunset from one of the quaint stone patios, or enjoy a cool drink from Stargazers Deck underneath the Milky Way as you’ve never seen it before.

The Ranch at Death Valley

The Ranch at Death Valley

The Ranch at Death Valley has just been part of a $100 million renaissance and is the energetic center of activity in Death Valley.

The Ranch at Death Valley has a classic mid-century feel with easy access to the ever-refreshing 87-degree spring-fed pool as well as a new restaurant, ice cream and coffee bar, general store and our famous "Last Kind Words Saloon" straight out of a western movie.
