Actually, if I want to live in a small house in the country with spectacular views I’d ask my tenant to move.January 25, 2014 at 3:39 PM #770204flyerParticipant
Once our kids were set in life, we started spending extended periods of time in various locations we enjoy–and have been able to continue in our professions–which, like you, we still really enjoy, also. Maybe you can do both, scaredy, and have the best of both worlds.January 25, 2014 at 4:57 PM #770207
wel we stayed att the best western with some visiting Elks, and frankly it was pretty awesome. there was a hot tub of sorts, some beds, aa person who cleaned up in between our sleeptimes, a tv, a table…free crappy breakfast. on the whole…it was way worth 109 a night. maybe ill just stick with one house at a time. i think its all my tender nerves can takeJanuary 25, 2014 at 6:02 PM #770210FlyerInHiGuest
$109 is expensive for the middle is nowhere, if it’s not inside the park where the operator has to pay concession fees. Considering cheap real estate, the hotel owner is getting good returns if he can charge that much everyday.January 26, 2014 at 8:52 AM #770222
seemed like a good deal at 109. it was so clean and new. except we managed to clog the toilet, just like we do at home….that’s our family specialty…January 27, 2014 at 6:21 AM #770243UCGalParticipant

There’s no lodging inside the park… just camping. So the motels outside can charge higher because there are a lot of folks who don’t want to tent camp. (ANd the reservations for tent camp spots book up well in advance.)
My brother used to spend the week between Christmas and New Years at Joshua Tree with his friends for about 20 years in a row. He had it down to a science when to reserve the camp site.January 27, 2014 at 7:02 AM #770244

I wonder if there are airbnb listings out there.
You can buy a house and run a bnb
