this month’s SHOUT OUT! goes out to carrie yeager of the desert lily bed & breakfast in joshua tree, california. carrie and her husband, bob, are dear friends of my wife and i. we’re very pleased to be giving them a well deserved SHOUT OUT!

carrie and bob became the proud owners of the rosebud ruby star ranch (not sure why they didn’t keep THAT name) on june 16, 2007. they had been looking around for the perfect b&b for a couple of years and looked as far north as oregon and as far east as vermont. BUT, thankfully for me and anyone reading this, they settled on joshua tree, california for their new home and b&b. when they took over, they spent the hot summer getting the b&b ready for the fall season as the ruby star already had its fair share of regulars.

the rosebud ruby star already had a decent track record, but carrie and bob really took it to the next level. they renamed it the desert lily and added on a modest two story addition (so her and bob didn’t have to live in one of the guest rooms) and re designed the living/dining area with a nice desert/southwestern feel and inviting fireplace. there are three guest rooms available and they usually book a month or so in advance especially during holidays. carrie also has a couple of guest type houses available for rent on the property as well. 

carrie is truly the hostess with the mostess. she LOVES to cook breakfast and she does it very well. some of her favorites are double-stuffed triple berry french toast, crustless crab quiche with roasted red peppers and goat cheese, sweet potato waffles, eggs santa fe, and lemon ricotta pancakes with muddled fresh raspberries. she also always has homemade fresh chocolate chip cookies, a delicious private label wine aptly named the desert lily, and a selection of port.

now i’m going to be honest with you here. route 62 is the main road that runs through joshua tree. if carrie’s b&b was located right off the highway, i’d gladly stay there and enjoy her scrumptious breakfastses (yes i meant to do that) and gladly watch the cars go by. BUT, what makes this a real gem, is the desert lily is very close to the entrance of joshua tree national park (you can see my get outdoors! post here) and located on a dirt road (fine for 2 wheel drive vehicles) and in the mountains a bit so you will get some nice views of the mountains and surrounding valley. in other words, it’s in the perfect setting. to wake up in the morning and enjoy breakfast on the outdoor patio and take in the desert landscape is pure bliss.

carrie really understands customer service and will go out of her way to make sure her guests have a pleasurable & memorable experience. she can easily recommend things to do in joshua tree national park and joshua tree itself.  so for those of you who already read the get outdoors! article featuring joshua tree national park, you have no excuse than to get your butts out to “jtree”. you’ll be glad you did and oh, they’ll leave the stars on for you.
