The Inn at Furnace Creek
The Inn at Furnace Creek, a member of Historic Hotels of America since 2012, was built by the Pacific Coast Borax Company of Twenty Mule Team fame as a means to save their newly built Death Valley Railroad. Designed by prominent Los Angeles architect Albert C Martin and landscape architect Daniel Hull, the Inn was first opened for business in 1927.
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, The Inn has remained an elegant hideaway for more than 85 years and is open from mid-October to mid-May. Guests can experience fine dining in one of the world’s most remote settings, relax at the spring-fed pool, stroll through spectacular palm gardens, or shop for unique items in the gift shop or nearby General Store. The architecturally stunning Inn also offers unique function space, ideal for small business and social gatherings.
During the winter season, guests can also enjoy tennis, sport courts, horseback riding, or romantic carriage rides. When it comes to golf, guests can tee it up on the world’s lowest golf course at 214 feet below sea level. This historic course opened with nine holes in 1931 and was expanded to 18 holes in the fall of 1968. The course was redesigned in 1997 by noted golf course architect Perry Dye and a high-tech irrigation system was installed at that time. The course is irrigated using recycled water from the resort’s spring-fed swimming pools.
Furnace Creek Airport is located just west of the resort and serves private aircraft. Furnace Creek Resort provides complimentary van transfers from this local airport. The runway is 3,065 feet long and the FAA identifier is LO6.
The Inn at Furnace Creek is located in Death Valley National Park.
