We love Anza Borrego State Park, and you will find us adventuring there a lot, if you have been there before you might know that the park headquarters is in Borrego Springs which is an awesome little desert town. Most of our trips have us in the back country sleeping on the ground but this week I got treated to a special trip, thanks to Stephanie. There are some pretty neat resorts there and we have rolled through town but never stayed.
Well for my birthday Steph hooked it up and put together an amazing trip for me to Casa Del Zorro (Spanish for House of the Fox) so we had to go obviously. Talk about an amazing trip just an hour from the shop we had a pleasant drive through Warner Springs and down to Borrego. The resort was amazing just pulling up the grounds where well taken care of the staff was wonderful. I did not know this but talking to our buddy Brice (Brice Weaver Photography) Borrego Springs used to be a hot spot for Hollywood types who didn’t want the attention of Palm Springs, and resorts like this were popular with them.
I can see why Steph got a one of their casitas and it was one of the better places I have stayed with two bedrooms a living room and a private pool! I was in relaxation heaven. The only time I left was to enjoy sunrise and sunset with views of Fonts Point and the mountains. Oh and I did leave for a great birthday dinner at the restaurant, I definitely recommend the brie appetizer.
It was a great break from the normal and an easy in and out relaxation vacation, if you get a chance check them out this summer, yes summer! They have lower rates and great air-conditioning, and it gives you the morning and evenings to explore the famous desert sculptures nearby and some of the desert (use you head and don’t do anything to crazy its getting warm out). One of my favorite things is the desert in the summer, at night and Casa Del Zorro is a great way to experience it in style.
