The 1930s adobe home of cowboy artist Lon Megargee sits in the center of this boutique desert hideaway, technically in Paradise Valley but just a half-mile off the Camelback Corridor. There’s not a golf course in sight, and it’s not a resort, though there’s a pleasant pool. But if you are looking for a) luxury and b) a quiet place to chill in the evenings, this is for you. There are 35 rooms on just 6 acres, set amid quiet walkways, cactus gardens, towering mesquites, and fountains. Most of the rooms were redone in 2015; they are spacious, with arching wood skylights, big bathrooms with large walk-in showers and deep bathtubs, and patios right outside. (I’ve stayed in boutique hotel rooms in NYC smaller than the patios—or the bathrooms, for that matter!) The setting, amid sprawling desert mansions, is a great place for a morning bike ride, and the restaurant, Lon’s, will take care of you.
