Two years ago a new owner bought Gurney’s Inn from the Monte family, which had owned the sprawling oceanfront resort since 1956. A trip there was always like visiting an old and beloved aunt. It was familiar and comfortable, but down at the heel. Alright, it was downright tacky.
Everything old becomes new again, and so it is with Palm Springs, California. The one-time “Pompeii of the California desert,” as the New York Times called it, has been rediscovered by warm weather seekers as far east as Montauk...
