Palm Springs has been a getaway spot for Hollywood stars as early as the 1930s. Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Bob Hope, Lucille Ball, Bing Crosby, Liberace, Walt Disney, Marilyn Monroe, Kirk Douglas, and many other classic Hollywood stars have stayed and played in Palm Springs.
One of the most desired getaways was the first dude ranch in Palm Springs, the Deep Well Guest Ranch. A former Palm Springs mayor observed: 'It wasn't very dudey. . . It was more like a resort hotel.' Its guest list included Clark Gable, Cary Grant, Jack Benny, Mary Astor, and Don Ameche. During its heyday in the 1930s and 40s, it was operated by Frank and Melba Bennett, who owned it with Palm Springs' first mayor, Philip Boyd, and his wife. Melba Bennett was instrumental in founding many Palm Springs traditions, including the historical society.
The Ranch gradually gave way to development, surrounding this home and leaving it the only remaining guest cottage from the Deep Well Ranch. Fortunately, the Ranch became one of the most exclusive enclaves in Palm Springs. Famous residents included Loretta Young and her couture designer husband Jean Louis. Liberace's home was next door to Sally Eilers, who was next door to Bill Holden. Across from Bill's back fence were Liz Taylor and Eddie Fisher, and neighbors Jack Webb and Eva Gabor.
