Beautiful, Relaxing, and Quiet Studio Retreat!
We just spent a spectacular week at this little studio in Yucca Valley. The pictures do not do the studio or the views justice. I suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder and so need to go somewhere sunny during the winter to keep my mood stable. The place must also be relatively quiet because I am an online professor and must read and grade essays while soaking in the sun. I couldn't have found a better place in my dreams! Myshkin (we didn't get the opportunity to meet Jenny -- though we loved using her organic herbal soaps, shampoos, and sprays :-)) was friendly and welcoming but also completely respectful of our privacy. The hot tub is fully enclosed yet open--in all the right places-- to a spectacular view of the mountains during the day and of the starry black sky at night. The water seemed to be treated with something that made it smell really fresh and was set to the perfect temperature for both day and evening soaks. The little studio is bright and airy with the curtains open or dark and cool with them closed so I could always create my perfect environment. With Palm Springs and Joshua Tree National Park so close by car (we rented one from Budget), there was always somewhere to go when we wanted to see the sights or simply wind our way through the hills and valleys. The people in the town are welcoming and friendly and their Saturday Farmer's Market is full of fresh veggies and local crafts. I would recommend stopping for a latte or a fruit smoothie at Ma Rouge Coffee House and checking out the local antique shops along Palm Springs Highway. So far this is my favourite spot for getting all the sunshine I need to get through the rest of winter in Southern Ontario, Canada!
