Description

The Shadow Mountain Club was one of the first resorts in Palm Desert; the Sun Lodges were bungalows which could be purchased by individuals and then rented out when not in use. The land was owned by the corporation, making the Sun Lodges one of the first 'condominium' style developments in the area. These small houses fit the requirements of the local architecture review boards, and helped pave the way for future White commissions in the area.
