The In-Room Instrument Experience is a unique opportunity for guests to experience and play distinctive instruments that have been painstakingly handcrafted with passion, dedication, and craftsmanship here in the High Desert for more than 25 years.

“It’s no secret that a guitar can be a cumbersome travel companion, and we created the In-Room Instrument Experience with that exact challenge in mind,” said Sami Mulhern, director of marketing and artist relations at Breedlove and Bedell Guitars. “By giving their guests the unique opportunity to spend time with our locally crafted instruments at their respective properties, and to visit the Breedlove/Bedell showroom during their stay, our lodging partners have created an exciting new definition of a ‘Stay and Play’ vacation.”
