Live in Old World Charm at this Celebrity Pick in Palm Springs

An official Palm Springs Historic Landmark, the Ingleside Inn and Melvyn’s Resort, built in 1925 when Palm Springs was little more than a sleepy desert village, it has retained its old-world charm. Serving patrons from presidents to movie stars, the inn has undergone major restoration but remains a celebrity favorite and desert gem.


The Humphrey Birge family built the Spanish-style estate in the calm beauty of the scenery at the foot of the magnificent San Jacinto Mountains in 1925. When sold to Ruth Hardy, she changed the estate into an exclusive and private hotel, changing its fate forever.


From the moment you enter the lovely, wrought-iron gates on your wedding day, you are spellbound; the Spanish adobe walls that enclose the property and maintain its privacy are lighted with multicolored bougainvillea.
