The History of the Deep Well Guest Ranch

Palm Springs has been a getaway spot for Hollywood stars as early as the 1930s. Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Bob Hope, Lucille Ball, Bing Crosby, Liberace, Walt Disney, Marilyn Monroe, and many other classic Hollywood stars have stayed and played in Palm Springs.

One of the most desired getaway spots was the first dude ranch in Palm Springs, the "Deep Well Guest Ranch". A former Palm Springs mayor observed: "It wasn't very dudey. . . It was more like a resort hotel." Its guest list included Clark Gable, Cary Grant, Jack Benny, Mary Astor, and Don Ameche. During its heyday in the 1930s and 40s, it was operated by Frank and Melba Bennett, who owned it with Palm Springs' first mayor, Philip Boyd, and his wife. Melba Bennett was instrumental in founding many Palm Springs traditions, including the historical society.

The Deep Well Well Guest Ranch became one of the most exclusive enclaves in Palm Springs. Famous residents included Loretta Young and her couture designer husband Jean Louis, the list goes on and on.

Gorgeous Estate

"Gorgeous Estate Very private setting on huge piece of property. Beautiful pool, hot tub. So private feels like a bird sanctuary. Views of mountains to the west. Deep Wells is a wealthy enclave of modernism. Lots of beautiful homes and landscaping but this property is particularly lovely. "

Palm Springs Oasis

"Palm Springs oasis We loved the outdoor area of this home. The pool area and gardens were beautiful, manicured, and private. We loved sitting around the pool and eating together poolside in the evening. There was so much to do and the yard was well stocked for fun. We used the pool, the hot tub, the sports court, the pool table, and the grassy areas. It was perfect! "

"We had 12 girls in our group for a bachelorette weekend. We had a last minute mix up and had to stay at a different home. The home we stayed at was perfect and even better than the orginal property booked. Vacation Palm Springs team did not disappoint us, they went above and beyond to make up for the mix up and the bride to be was so pleased with the house, extra details that Michael Loveless took to make it an amazing weekend.

Everything You Need!

"You won't have to leave home to enjoy this place. It really has everything you need for a large group. There was plenty of space and privacy and every room was comfortable. The kitchen is stacked with plates and utensils, pots and pans and the AC inside was great. Loved this place! We couldn't find the pool lights so we called and within less than an hour a friendly man (can't recall his name) was there to help. We extended our stay and the woman I spoke to had lots of patience! "

Family Vacation In Palm Springs

"Beautiful grounds, terrific pool, well furnished home and quiet neighborhood. We loved the oversized dining table for meals and games. On arrival, there was a problem with the rental we had originally planned on staying at but Andy, Britt and Patrick were quick to come up with an agreeable solution so our long awaited vacation was not ruined. Our family of seven had a wonderful time as planned. I will say, everyone we spoke to at Vacation Palm Springs was friendly and professional. They were easy to contact and quick to see to our needs. They worked hard to make sure everyone was satisfied. I have complete confidence in their organization and won't hesitate to enlist them again for our vacation property. "
