"Some say when one door closes, another one opens...at Turtle Back Mesa, the journey begins the minute you park your car. The path to tranquility is welcomed by your host Ernie and Marlyn Sussman as you enter their oasis otherwise known as Turtle Back Mesa. A hidden gem in Indio's desert, Turtle Back Mesa is a place where you can't help but be captured by the peaceful nature of the surroundings, from the beautiful mesa architecture to the inviting pool and out to the hot tub where you can sit under the stars and melt away any stress. I always leave Turtle Back Mesa a little lighter with more peace of mind. I love closing my car door and opening the door at Turtle Back Mesa. It's a place I know I'll return to again."

"The fact that I already knew the owners, Marlyn and Ernest, did not change the way a true relaxing vacation should be. The location and quietness of the site speaks for itself. It was clean and well organized. An excellent spot to get away and relax around nature. Highly recommended." — Andre & Antonine, Florida/Canada
"I have been staying at Turtle Back Mesa for several years now. My husband and I like this bed and breakfast so much, it's a quiet place to escape from the city. The owners are very enthusiastic about their b&b and always make you feel right at home. The meals are the best, ask for the crepes!" — Brittany, Long Beach, CA
"If you need peace and tranquility, a place to relax clothes-free — Turtle Back Mesa is the place to be. Gracious hosts Marlyn and Ernie's beautifully decorated home containing Marlyn's pottery and art work is a true gem. A superb breakfast to start the leisurely day; a pool to cool off in during the summer heat; a hot tub filled with natural hot spring water to soak in under the stars. There is only one problem — it is difficult to leave! Highly recommended."
