“Elegant and Totally Secluded!”
In 1925, Palm Springs was little more than a sleepy desert village. The prestigious Humphrey Birge family, owners of the Pierce Arrow Motor Car Company, then the "Rolls Royce" of America, liked the calm beauty of the scenery and built a Spanish-style estate at the foot of the magnificent San Jacinto Mountains. Here they lived for some ten years until the demise of the matriarch of the clan, and the property was then sold to Ruth Hardy, a lady from Indiana, who changed the face of the town and of the Inn itself. She transformed the estate into a 20-room hotel, and it was a very special one indeed. You did not call for a reservation, you had to be invited, and if Mrs. Hardy did not consider that you measured up to her standards, you were simply told there was, "no room at the Inn."
