Cabot's Pueblo Museum
Because it’s just so inspirational, quirky cool. True desert pioneering spirit.
Cabot's Pueblo Museum is a historic house museum located in Desert Hot Springs, California, United States. A large, Hopi-style pueblo, built in the Pueblo Revival Style, it contains artworks, artifacts of American Indian and Alaska Native cultures, and memorabilia of early desert homesteader life.
Museum rich in history regarding our town and it's healing waters. Great picture spot.
A museum I once worked at. Gives you a feel for the city of Desert Hot Springs.
Nestled in the scenic hills of Desert Hot Springs, a Hopi-inspired pueblo sits against a hillside. Not just any pueblo, but one built with re-purposed materials he collected throughout the desert.
Cabot Yerxa, one of the early homesteaders hand-built pueblo (1913) and historical site, is within walking distance. Upon discovering the water, it prompted Cabot to name his homestead Miracle Hill.
Totally unique. Began as a homestead but is one mans ide to art and the local culture. The arqitecture of the building is so original and interesting.
Early 1900s homesteader and hot-springs tapper Cabot Yerxa built this four-story pueblo of reclaimed materials and filled its 35 rooms with art and treasures from his treks around the world. Now you can tour it. Advanced reservations are not required, but arriving early is recommended…
Just do it. It is very cool and informative regarding the discovery of the natural hot springs. You'll get to tour the unique home hand built by Cabot himself for the harsh desert life pre-air conditioning ... in his 70s!... using materials he collected over his lifetime. It is something you must…
Cabot Yerxa followed his heart and created an iconic place. Cabot’s Pueblo is marvel of engineering and design. The home was built beginning in 1941 and was always intended to be a museum in addition to the residence for Cabot and Portia Yerxa. The Hopi-inspired building is hand-made and created…
This museum is a gem in Desert Hot Springs. Call in advance for reservations so you can take a tour. It was totally packed when we came, but so worth visiting.
“Day pass $15 (subject to change) for mineral hot spring pools: There are two sections... across the parking lot from each other. One side is for 21+ guests and the other side is for all ages, including under-age. Hours are from 9am to 10pm. ”
“Two blocks from Koi Springs! Quaint eatery in the Miracle Springs Resort serving an all-day menu of American & Italian classics.”
“The BEST BEST BEST Mexican food. Seriously. Matador pictures on the wall are of the owner too....so I don't know why this place isn't called El Matador. It's South of the Border and it's wicked good authentic Mexican in a pretty atmosphere.”
“With a 600-year-old natural spring source on-site, the mineral waters that flow from this relaxing retreat are low in sulfur (meaning odor-free) and rich in lithium, creating a perfect cocktail for maximum cleansing and rejuvenation. Recharging every 24 hours, these bubbling waters are even said to be a natural mood elevator. Set on 72 acres and framed by a backdrop of peaceful palms, the sprawling spa offers a menu of traditional treatments like mud baths and specialty massages, as well as a variety of spiritual services and private readings performed by intuitive healing practitioners.”
“On or way out or if you just want to go cool off and lounge the Spa culture in desert hot springs is amazing. For $9 you can go in all their different natural spring pools of all temperatures from 8am to 10pm. This place is not fancy and hasn't been updated ever but its nice to chill poolside, cool off or warm up off before the drive back to LA or just get some R & R. There sister property is $14 for the day and a bit nicer from 9am-6pm. Both have restaurants and drinks. ”
