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.

Guest access
Guests will have access to the entire home and two acres of land. Garage is for owner use only.

Other things to note
Please note we are in a desert wilderness area and we do not always have control over nature. Please be careful of creatures and cactus and take care of the landscape. You may see a few cats, jackrabbits, roadrunners, coyotes, cactus wrens, and even quail! Do not leave food unattended outside or inside although the critters will enjoy the free feast!

We are reasonably isolated, but we do have close neighbors on both sides. Our neighbors are wonderful!!! They are artists who work out of their homes, so at times they can disturb the serenity with some workshop noise during the day. They also keep lights on throughout the night for their protection and ours, this bit of light pollution will impede night photography.

It is common in Joshua Tree to let dogs roam free. Our neighbors have two large dogs who you might see in our property. Please be mindful with small children when outside. They are friendly but proceed with caution.

We have AC and Heat but keep AC off when the cabin is not in use to conserve energy. Please note: It may be hot when you arrive during summer months but AC cools down within an hour. We suggest turning on the units and heading into town to explore.

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.
