Cynthia's Guesthouse and Hostel


Immerse yourself in the desert mystique of the Armagosa Valley, gateway to Death Valley National Park, where Cynthia's offers a collection of lodging options for the adventurous desert traveler. Visit a valley ringed with mountains, red and golden in the desert light, where the Armagosa River cuts through a dramatic desert canyon rich with wildlife. Sheltered by rolling mud hills, the remnants of an ancient lake, the quirky and artistic small town of Tecopa is home to world-class mineral hot springs and plenty of local flavor. Enjoy our luxury tipis nestled in the spring fed greenery of China Ranch, a desert oasis and family owned date farm surrounded by pristine and unpeopled natural splendor. Located midway between Las Vegas and Los Angeles, a short and scenic drive from Death Valley, Cynthia's welcomes you.
