The Trafalgar difference

MAKE TRAVEL MATTER®

The Amargosa Opera House was founded by the eccentric Marta Becket who stumbled upon the run-down space when her car broke down in 1967. She spent years personally doing the labor to create the theatre space in the most unlikely of destinations, Death Valley Junction. Today the facility still strives to bring the arts to this little desolate sliver of America. But the past few years have been a financial struggle and your visit will Make Travel Matter as Trafalgar will make a donation for each guest to hopefully keep the opera house entertaining guests for many years into the future.

Stays With Stories

The 224-room hotel built in 1933 has undergone a $100 million renovation and is the energetic center of activity in Death Valley. Set along Highway 190 next to the National Park Service Visitor Center, guests will enjoy a classic town square with towering date palms and mission California architecture.

Stays With Stories

Set on 25 secluded acres, surrounded by towering fan palms and lush gardens, the Campbell House offers a peaceful retreat, where you can experience the quiet and calm of the open desert.

Be My Guest - Campbell House

Heidi Grunt, owner and operator of the Campbell House, will host group dinners inside the main dining room. The evening begins with a welcome by the owner and led on a short tour of the property. During dinner, Heidi shares her and her family’s story and the history of both properties and enjoys a meal seated with our groups. Heidi is the fourth generation owner and operator of the 29 Palms Inn and Campbell House. They will be celebrating their 100th year anniversary in 2028. Heidi purchased the Campbell House in 2016 from long time friends and fellow inn keepers as they decided to retire. The two properties are both very special, with rich history, desert architecture, beauty, an abundance of wildlife and desert fauna.

MAKE TRAVEL MATTER®

San Gorgonio Pass Wind Farm is one of the windiest spots in the United States and makes the perfect location for the 3,218 windmills that dominate the landscape and provide power to Palm Springs and the adjacent desert communities. Enjoy a private "behind the scenes" tour of the windmills getting the most incredible up-close education on what affordable and clean energy is all about.
