Welcome to The Moon Cabin - a romantic rustic modern homestead on 2 acres in Joshua Tree.

Lovingly designed and curated, it is the perfect place for a weekend getaway for two. Watch the sunset from porch rocking chairs, stargaze in the hammock, cozy up by the fireplace and recharge surrounded by gorgeous desert views. Conveniently located 10 miles to the park entrance and a quick drive to the Joshua Tree village.

The space
The Moon Cabin is a 1959 homesteader that has been renovated with modern amenities and custom elements to bring back the cabin feel. The space is meant to highlight the best parts of the desert - solitude, sunsets, and expansive views. We have AC and Heat so you can stay comfortable year round. Coffee, tea, and oatmeal are provided for the morning as well as filtered water, spices, and everything you need for the kitchen. We also have a telescope available for stargazing, a double hammock, curated records, books and DVDs, vintage board games and a bocce court and a charcoal grill for BBQing.

We have worked hard to make it a comfortable space but keep in mind you are visiting the desert. This place is perfect for easy-going folks who want a break from the every day and don't mind interacting with nature. If you are expecting 5-star accommodations, this cabin is not for you.

We are taking the Covid-19 crisis very seriously. We are spacing stays and will be taking strict steps to sanitize between guests.

Where you’ll be

Joshua Tree, California, United States

Where the asphalt meets the dirt, The Moon Cabin is located in a secluded pocket of North Joshua Tree, next to Acido Dorado & Rosa Muerta, just a short drive from the Noah Purifoy Foundation and downtown Joshua Tree. The cabin is private but not too remote—surrounded by a community of artist studios and artisan neighbors.
