Escape a busy life and step back in time to relax in our tiny, high desert, old mining town. Expansive views of surrounding mountains. Dark sky for star gazing. Cruise the town to see sculptures and other works of local artists. Dirt roads for exploring desert life in the surrounding BLM land. 20 miles from the entrance to Death Valley, near eastern Sierra hiking. Personal retreat or group adventure. No stores or services in Darwin, but sounds of burros and coyotes! Inyo County TOT Permit #259.

There are two bedrooms, a kitchenette, bathroom, and deck--the second story of a larger house on 1.4 acres. Balcony off one bedroom overlooks garden and patio. Deck has a wonderful view of the Argus and Coso Mountains. Located in the tiny town (population around 40) of Darwin, CA, where mining used to be big business. Surrounded by the Coso Mountains, the Argus Range, and hills that border Death Valley National Park, Darwin is at just under 5000' elevation, and just a 40 mile drive to the eastern Sierra/Mt. Whitney area with many hiking trails to choose from at higher elevation during the heat of summer. Kitchenette has a counter top two burner stove, large toaster oven, under counter size refrigerator, crock pot, blender, and microwave, as well as many cooking utensils. I supply a coffee grinder, French press, and drip equipment plus a selection of teas. Deck has a dining table and propane grill with a single burner on the side. A salt water hot tub is located on the other side of the house. There is no cell service, but satellite wifi is available. I also teach Qi Gong classes outdoors on Thursday mornings.

I can give a discount on cleaning if only one bedroom is used. I'm also open to negotiating rates for longer stays, or working out a deal where guests can stay one or 2 days at the Lucky B, then stay one day in Death Valley or the Sierra (perhaps climb Mt. Whitney!), and return for a final day in Darwin—an opportunity for maximum exploration and immersion of the unique geology of this historic region!

Darwin, Kalifornía, Bandaríkin

Darwin is a tiny town of around 43 people that used to be a booming mining town—the same population as LA back in the 1880s! Some buildings are vacant, some are dwellings with permanent residents, and some are vacation homes for people living out of town. Many have funky artistic flairs that are fun to look at, including lots of old, rusty vehicles we call yard art. Due to several fires, there are only 2 older buildings left from the earlier mining days—one of them is a partially underground prospector’s shack in the wash on my property!

One highlight is the Post Office where locals gather around mail delivery time to catch up on news and have some social time together. Visitors are welcome to come by and say hi, exchange stories, and get a taste of the simpler, slowed-down life of the high lonesome desert.

Climbing a hill behind our town provides views of the Sierra Mountains in the Mt. Whitney area (14,505’), as well as Telescope Peak in Death Valley, where it plummets to 282’ below sea level—the highest and lowest elevations in the lower States!

There are no services in Darwin! No gas stations or stores--closest grocery store and gas station is about 35 miles away, so bring food and water with you!

Five things I can't live without.... 4-legged furry creatures that like to snuggle and sit on my lap, birds singing in my garden, my bicycle, time with my kids, time in nature. I moved to Darwin to live a simpler, less busy life since we are far from most modern conveniences. I love the wide open expansiveness of the desert, the quiet surroundings (no sirens!!), the lack of traffic (only one stop sign in town), and the amazing night sky we can watch without light pollution!

I am a retired high school teacher from Santa Cruz, CA, where I lived for 40 years. Now I'm living in the eastern Sierra Nevada area of California in a tiny old mining town in between Death Valley and Mt. Whitney where I have a part time job as the secretary/treasurer of the local water district and offer Qi Gong classes once a week. I love spending time in nature: hiking, biking, kayaking, and paddleboarding. Interests include salsa rueda and ecstatic dance, local history, traditional plant uses, permaculture, cooking, and gardening. I strive to be conscientious of our environment and live as sustainable a life as possible.

I have traveled to many places, including Mexico, Jamaica, Ecuador, Peru, Bali, Java, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Costa Rica, Belize, Hong Kong, Taiwan, the Philippines, Norway, Greece, Turkey, Rwanda, Uganda, and Tanzania. I climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro with my daughter- the hardest thing I've ever done. Of course, a safari in the Serengeti was a childhood dream that was also fulfilled on that trip. Camping and cross country skiing are favorite things to do in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, where I go several times a year. I have driven across the United States 4 times and was able to visit many of our National Parks, like Yosemite, Yellowstone, Death Valley, and the Grand Canyon. When I visit another culture, I love to immerse myself by learning some of the language, eating local food, and exploring the history and social background. I prefer staying at hostels or homestays over big hotels. A little adventure, time in nature, and physical activity are always important to me.

I grew up in Illinois- until I was 14, when I moved to California to live with my mother. My mother is the 10th woman to solo circumnavigate the world and now lives in Mexico, so I've spent quite a bit of time sailing and living on boats. Now I prefer a kayak or paddleboard, as they give more opportunities for observing wildlife. I once worked as a crewmember on a whalewatching boat. I've also been a veterinary aide, exotic animal caretaker, stained glass artist, and a docent in the state parks.

My favorite part about hosting air bnb guests is discovering how much we have in common. I am inspired to know there are so many people out there from all parts of the world who are thoughtful, fun, interesting, and with a good sense of humor- and who share my passion about caring for this amazing planet we call home. It's so fun to share ideas- I've gotten many helpful tips from guests on how to live more sustainably. The biggest surprise was a guest who had an aunt that was my neighbor and shared a driveway with me for 5 years!

Í dvölinni

I love talking with guests and helping them plan adventures, but I also like to honor people's needs for space and relaxation. The best way to connect with me is through texting, but you can also come downstairs and knock on my front door.
