The Story

A True sense of place


Mountain Shadows Resort originally opened in 1959. Designed by architect Martin Stern, Jr., it was a stylish paradise enjoyed by tourists, locals and the homeowners who lived within the resort development. Mountain Shadows was truly one of the premier resorts in the entire Southwest, known for its mid-century modern design and stunning location.

A Desert Icon


The resort played host to well-heeled travelers from around the country and an array of celebrity guests. In the early 60s, the television show “The Brothers Brannagan” used the resort as its backdrop for the antics of a pair of private eyes.


a new beginning


Mountain Shadows has been completely rebuilt from the ground up. It has re-emerged as the benchmark for desert luxury and distinctive design, inspired by the 1950s modernism of the original resort. Stunning mountain and desert views linger in your memory long after you visit.
