Heart’s Desire

Heart’s Desire is a tranquil courtyard sheltered by a huge walnut tree and hidden behind a massive gate. All around are mountains and the Great Wall. Gather in the great room on the built-in heated kang big enough for everyone. Get warm from the dramatic fireplace. Enjoy cooking in an open kitchen with a view or sit in a garden of day lilies and forsythia while listening to a gently flowing waterfall. Created by a busy man to be a place that gives comfort just because he knows that it exists, Heart’s Desire is breathtakingly close to the Wild Wall with every modern comfort. Now you too can share in this dream and Heart’s Desire can be your home at the Great Wall.
