Two Bunch Palms famous for its mineral water grotto.
Palm Springs Valley is such a jewel, as it is home to compelling locales like Two Bunch Palms resort. I’m always surprised how many full time desert residents I talk to have never made the short drive to Desert Hot Springs to partake of Two Bunch Palms’ unique offerings. Once there, you feel like you are in a place out of time. Two of the Resort’s most famous offerings are their artesian mineral waters, revered by people from all over the world, and its illustrious history involving the notorious gangster Al Capone.
Personally, I go to Two Bunch to “take the waters,” as many refer to the mineral lithium rich hot springs that naturally occur in the Palm Springs Valley from the ground underneath. The lithium has an amazingly soothing effect that’s hard to describe . . . it’s something you have to experience firsthand. Many people come to Two Bunch just to float in the grotto, equipped with a good book and a cold beverage, as you must keep yourself well hydrated while immersed in the hot water for any length of time. It’s easy to drift off into a dreamlike state and there’s a quiet hush around the waters, with a sign posted asking for silence to be observed, or at least quiet whispering. You will never sleep better or feel more relaxed than after a soak here.
WHAT ELSE IS THERE TO DO AFTER A SOAK AT TWO BUNCH?
Two Bunch Palms dates as far back as the 1930s when Al Capone and his gangster buddies hung out there, it was their desert hideaway. Once you’ve visited the Resort, nestled amid native palm and tamarisk trees, it’s easy to understand why they were drawn to this little oasis. Since that time, Two Bunch has also served as a hideaway for many of Hollywood’s celebrities and those seeking a relaxing respite away from the public eye. It was acquired by new owners in 2012 and has been updated and improved to attract an ever-growing number of guests. How about a walk through the labyrinth to calm and center your mind? Take a stroll in nature around the grounds and you’ll find the turtle and duck ponds, so soothing. There is a menu of amazing spa treatments, maybe a mud bath today? Yoga in the yoga dome and other fitness classes are available for those with energy to work off.

I haven’t been to Cabot’s Pueblo Museum in Desert Hot Springs
. . . but I’ve been told that it is one of the jewels in our Palm Springs Valley here and not to be missed. So, some friends who are familiar with it are taking me on Sunday to peruse this local treasure, so I’m studying up on it before I go.
Cabot’s Pueblo is a structure or home – handmade by a man named Cabot Yerxa from objects that were reclaimed or found. The four story high structure was built in Pueblo style, has 5,000 square feet and 35 rooms, 150 windows and 65 doors. The building possesses many unique and interesting features, as some windows and doors were collected from abandoned homesteads and reassembled for use in this home. Yerxa also used buckboard wagon parts, old telephone poles and other building materials in a very creative manner.
Cabot Yerxa founded Desert Hot Springs and was a homesteader there from 1913 until 1918. He is also responsible for discovering the “miraculous” hot water aquifer that lies under Desert Hot Springs and from which sprang a whole tourist and resort industry capitalizing on these readily available healing waters.
Upon visiting Cabot’s Pueblo Museum, guided tours take visitors on a journey through the life of Cabot Yerxa and his family. You will see artifacts they collected from their adventures spanning back over a hundred years. You will also hear Yerxa’s stories from his travels to the Dakota Territory, Mexico, Alaska, Cuba, France and throughout California and the Southwest.
The museum is open year-round for single tours, prearranged group tours and special events. Hours are Wednesday to Saturday from 9am to 1pm. Tours are scheduled at 9:30, 10:30 and 11:30am. Tickets are $11, first come, first served.
Cabot’s Pueblo Museum is located at 67-616 E. Desert View Avenue in Desert Hot Springs. For more info, call 760-329-7610.
