Unitarian Universalist Church of the Desert sits in Rancho Mirage, CA – the heart of the Coachella Valley, a perfect winter (and summer) getaway destination!
This international resort valley includes the desert cities of Palm Springs, Cathedral City, Palm Desert, Indian Wells, La Quinta and Indio. All are venues for professional and recreational sports (golf, tennis, swimming, hiking, horse back riding, polo and more). In addition, Palm Springs International Film Festival, the BNP Paribas Tennis Open, major golf tournaments, the Southwest and La Quinta Arts Festivals attract world-class artists and collectors. And, of course, there are the Coachella and Stagecoach and Desert Trip Music Festivals. Or take the aerial tram to look across the valley from the slopes of Mt. San Jacinto (you can play golf in the morning and snowshoe in the afternoon). Or take a hike in nearby Joshua Tree National Park.
Church members now offer UU travelers to the desert the economical short-term lodging option to stay in our church members' homes: private rooms ($75 single; $85 double) and casitas with separate entrance and bath ($100) with a light breakfast.
All accommodations are non-smoking and all funds from the BnB program go to the church.
