History of Bubbling Wells Ranch

A Story of Love, Luck & Unbreakable Spirit

The original cabin nestled in the hill side. The first hot water well in the foreground and located from 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.

Best vacationing experience I’ve ever had. The owner David made me feel right at home right off the jump and was the most accommodating host I have ever dealt with. The hot springs and scenery were truly incredible and breathtaking. The grounds of the ranch are very extensive and fun to explore. Amazing sunsets! His dogs are extremely friendly and fun to hang out with as well. 10/10 would recommend. What a unique lodging experience. I don’t think you will ever find anywhere on the planet just like it. Can’t wait to return! 😄😎

I decided to surprise my wife For our anniversary over the weekend. Needless to say, happy wife! To say that we love this property is an understatement. It’s an oasis in the middle of the desert. If you appreciate Nature and the outdoor life but still would like the amenities of a hotel, this is the place for you. If you need to be away from people for the weekend with you and your Significant other, you found the spot! David went above and beyond to make our anniversary special. He’s a wonderful host. Thank you David! We are definitely coming back here for future stays.

A friend organized a big bday party at the ranch and it was a perfect spot for catching up, making food, lounging in the springs, and relaxing. Highly recommend.

This place is nothing short of magical. Stayed here one night on the way back from LA to Flagstaff and it was a lovely experience in every way. This is the real thing - amazing old-school ranch vibes - not a corporate resort kind of atmosphere. David's hospitality is exceptional and his dogs are a joy! I enjoyed every minute and I can't wait to come back.

I am very delighted to have been introduced into this hidden gem. I stayed with family members to get away from the city life. Only to find more relaxation than I could imagine. Very quite and peaceful and a scenic master piece. David, the host was very accommodating and attentive to our stay. If you bring positive energy into this place it will be amplified. Peace and blessings.

Amazing sanctuary away from all the corporate resorts in this area. Tucked away in a convenient location, this place boasts warm “on demand” thermal hot springs baths in a natural rock formation which was super cozy and romantic especially at night under the stars. The houses are air conditioned and quiet, peaceful and secluded. David our host was quiet generous and fun to hang with! The mountain views were also a plus.

A truly unique experience and amazing historical oasis in Desert Hot Springs! Best vacation in many years. I stayed in the Pink Adobe Villa which was super clean, newly renovated with all the mod cons, AC and high quality linens on the beds. Step out back and enter a magical hot spring tub made of river rock, then take a dip or laps around the large, refreshing cold spring with hummingbirds and red tailed hawks flying overhead. I was given a tour of the spectacular main Villa by David, the owner and host who's passion for the property shows in the details. Having sweet dogs in residence also made me feel relaxed and welcomed.

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.
