Ocotillo Lodge - Palm Springs, CA

Ocotillo Lodge Location Map
The Ocotillo Lodge in Palm Springs, California was designed by Palmer & Krisel in 1955 and completed in 1957. The lodge was commissed by the Alexander Construction Company and Joseph Dunas as a destination resort to attract potential homeowners to the Coachella Valley. The original landscape of the nearly seven-acre property is attributed to Garret Eckbo, with interior design work attributed to Charles J. Aufferth Jr.  

The complex features distinctive Krisel-lines, with the exaggerated sunflap porte cochere, narrow window bands, decorative block work, shadow block, open-beamed ceilings, post-and-beam style construction, vertical banding and varied overhangs. It’s a fantastic complex of mid-century modern vacation units that are approximately 500 square-feet in size, and can be purchased individually for less than $200,000. 

If you're looking for a classic place to stay in Palm Springs, there's plenty of rentals available at the complex; sites such as flipkey, VRBO and trip advisor have plenty of availability.
