History of Bubbling Wells Ranch

A Story of Love, Luck & Unbreakable Spirit

The original cabin nestled in the hill side. The first how water well in in the foreground and located by what has remained the Main Well for the Ranch

An Impossible Discovery

In 1914, per the advice of the local native tribes, Cabot Yerxa dug a well outside of his cabin and discovered a seemingly unlimited source of hot, clean water under what he named “Miracle Hill” due to its exceptional quality and improbable existence.

The hot aquifer is heated by geothermal forces thousands of feet below the earth’s surface to temperatures up to 150 degrees Fahrenheit. Wellness resorts and spas have long sprung up along this natural feature, dating as far back as the 1930s when Al Capone set up next door in what is now famously known as Two Bunch Palms.

For the first time, The Bubbling Wells Ranch has opened it’s gates to the public to experience.

To describe this property with my mere human words wouldn't do it any justice.... It's too meaning-full to summarize. Too Absolute to define! I think it's a home well-suited for a God. Its hand crafted by an artist who put every last ounce of creativity and care into every corner, absolutely one of a kind every way you look. We were all impressed by the 200 year old (and then some) relics crafted by indigenous hands generations gone. You can sense the spirit flowing through the rooms by way of old and new art and artifacts. You can feel the intention that was put into building the home, and the peace and satisfaction felt by the artist during his years of crafting. And the work didn't end with the artists life, now the owner David is putting in his own hard work and energy into expanding the home(s) at Bubbling Wells Ranch, so that visitors can feel even more magic and comfort during their stay, whatever the nature of your stay may be. Super comfortable, super magical, and just an incredible place to be if you should ever find yourself so lucky to book a stay. I appreciate the serenity of the desert and the gem that is Bubbling Wells! I give this review 777/5 stars.

Our time at the Bubbling Wells Ranch was an incredible experience. David, the property host, was exceptionally helpful and very knowledgeable about the ranch and surrounding area. He gave us the perfect amount of hands-on attention when needed, and the rest of the time we felt like we were the only people on this incredible property. The ranch is located close to amenities- shops, bars, museums, parks, hiking trails, grocery stores, and restaurants, both in Desert Hot Springs (3-5 min drive) and Palm Springs (10-15 min drive). You get the best of both worlds- everything in the outside world you might want or need is minutes away by car, but when you’re on site you have solitude, seclusion, and beauty in all directions. The hot spring pools were gorgeous, and it was fun to watch the turtles and dragonflies and the husband-and-wife duck couple scoot around the green oasis pond. The rock-lined hot pool was perfect for stargazing on a cool desert night and listening to the bullfrogs sing. I was in need of healing following a devastating health scare; the waters here set me on the path to revitalizing my old self. There’s a reason this place is historic- the waters truly are magic! I was with one other person and our accommodations were more than perfect, with plenty of comfy spots to relax. The WiFi was super fast, and the kitchen in our hacienda was well-equipped and spacious. However, it’s easy to see how easily the ranch could accommodate large groups and/or events. David was kind enough to give us a tour of the main house which was absolutely stunning and would make an incredible backdrop for weddings and other group celebrations. I highly recommend BWR for those looking for a memorable stay in the desert. Thanks again to David for his kindness and hospitality!

Bubbling Wells - Historic Hot Springs Ranch is a majestic oasis right in the heart of Desert Hot Springs, California. In a matter of minutes, you go from urban city life into a tranquil 110-acre ranch filled with natural hot springs, ponds, trees, historic buildings, and an atmosphere similar to Joshua Tree and Pioneer Town combined. Best of all, the location is only 20 minutes from downtown Palm Springs.

I extended my stay for 2 nights instead. The place was tranquil and very zen. There are so much hiking options to take. I enjoyed the early morning and late afternoon walks with the 3 resident dogs who are most adorable, Cleo, Max and Blue. Both David and Ken were super accomodating and were great fun. I found a home away from home.

The Google reviews for Bubbling Wells Ranch are loaded with superlative words, and after spending yesterday there, I can verify their accuracy. Next time I might try an overnight visit, but even just spending the day there makes me want to give it a 10 if I could. If you're looking to be pampered by snack machines and maid service, it's not your kind of place. Bring in whatever you need, and make sure you pack out every last snip of trash you brought in just because. Just because you're the type of person who cares about leaving things as pristine as you found them. What Bubbling Wells provides is a beautiful oasis ... a canopy of green palms to filter the desert sun, water, and the option of endless raw entertainment, which at this place might involve sitting on a hill looking over the entire Coachella Valley with a backdrop of magnificent mountains accompanied by a soundtrack of beautiful quiet. Taking in the view is a big job if you know how to see, not just look ... it took me hours, and I still wasn't done. And did I mention water? Water in the desert is what makes an oasis an oasis, and at this one, one can choose hot or cold - all of it comes straight from Mother Earth. Soak in it, drink it - some claim it makes you live longer! Interest in local history is a bonus, since Cabot Yerxa was a man worthy of much admiration as well the rustic sign out by the road informing you that you've arrived at "YERXA TOWN". David, your owner and host, will treat you like family ... provided you behave appropriately. Which pretty much means you treat his oasis if if it were your own. I'll be going back soon. Thank you David ... Don is already anticipating my next visit!
