The Desert Inn Motel & Restaurant became part of history during the late 1880's and continues to make history today. A throw back to the early pioneer days in Florida, this is a must see for people from all walks of life. We hope you enjoy Yeehaw Junction on the web and drop in and visit us some time.Location
The Yeehaw railrad depot in later years was combined into the Yeehaw Juction Intersection for the community. The township was at one point in time called Crossrads, as well as Desert Inn, Jackass Crossing, and the Crossing. No one is really sure who was tesponsible for "Yeehaw Junction." So history gowe, when standard Oil wanted to put their station on the map, they neded to call it something and Jackass Crossing was not going to be it, as the Crossing and Desert Inn were out too!. So with the Turnpike in the 50's needing an exit name and Greyhound Bus line needing a "stop" name also, as well as any other reason, the name "Yeehaw Junction" was popularized, but one sitll hear's "Jackasses Crossing" on the CB's. Disney World is 1 hour away north and Vero Beach is half and hour east.

Meals/Amenities
Not only is there plenty to see, but you can also enjoy a gatorburger, turtleburger, or a juicy 1/2 lbs. hamburger. If you are looking for something a little lighter, enjoy some of our spicy chilli or homestyle pies while visiting our museum.

Awards and Recognition
