Tower Homestead

Guest Ranch



Tower Homestead Ranch is a family owned guest ranch. Spend your days poolside enjoying the clear blue skies and your evenings star gazing by a warm fire.


The Tower Homestead was built from a 100 year old house that was originally located in Pasadena, CA. In 1929, plank by plank, the house was relocated to Twentynine Palms on the back of a Model T truck. 

There was no freeway at this time, and coming up the Morongo Valley grade, the truck would move forward 10 feet, have it's wheels chocked, and then move forward another 10 feet until it reached the top of the grade.

Herb and Lily Tower made the move to Twentynine Palms during the Depression in 1933 and homesteaded in 1929. The original Homestead comprised of a 20' by 20' family room, with a wonderful fireplace (still in place today, and still working.) There was no running water, no electricity and no amenities. The Homestead remains in its location to this day.


"Twentynine Palms was a wonderful place to grow up. We learned to be self sufficient, make do and do without. The solitude of the desert affords one the opportunity to know one-self"

(Daughter of Herb & Lily Tower, mother to current owners Robin Anaya and her husband Manuel Anaya.
