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’s pueblo spreads an impressive 5,000 square feet, divided into 35 rooms and adorned with 150 windows and 65 doors. What a sight it is to see!

Through the tour, you will have the chance to get to know the man behind the pueblo: a bright and ambitious man, who followed his heart, traveled the world and accomplished countless things.

In a modern world where everything we need is at our fingertips with a touch of a button, a flick of a switch or the sound of a voice, it’s hard to imagine having to walk 14 miles for water. Let us take you on a journey back to simpler times and introduce you to an exceptionally fascinating man, Cabot Yerxa.

Watch the clip for a glimpse into the inspiring life of Cabot Yerxa.  Come take a tour!
