Amer & Cindy Tumeh’s first dip into the hospitality industry started when they purchased the Historic Jens Nielson home and renovated it into a 5 bedroom Guest House. They loved the people and the process so much they decided they needed to expand. However, not wanting to destroy the historic integrity of the Jens Nielson home they decided to build outside the historic district. Landing them on the west end of Bluff they started with 5 Executive Cabins and an office cabin in 1997.
Two years later, now with a son “Tarrik” was their biggest leap of faith. In 1999, they proposed a project of adding a 30 room lodge and conference facility to their list of growing endeavors. They headed to the bank and explained that they would like to design and build a brand new Desert Rose Inn & Cabins. Cindy had told Amer that if the bank approved their loan she would gladly sign on. Positive that there was no way the bank would give a couple of kids with limited experience that size of loan. Well, it has been over 20 years now that they have been operating the Desert Rose Inn & Cabins and have been blessed with an amazing staff and a flourishing business. They truly hope that their guest love Southeastern Utah and all of the beauty that surrounds them as much as they do
