I had a wonderful time at Terri's cottage. It was peaceful and clean and Terri was available for any questions. The Stars were gorgeous and the space was great! Hopefully can make it back soon.
A jewel in the desert: cute, rustic, intimate, full of whimsical furnishings like Indian blankets and a pot rack (there's no oven), and easy on the wallet to boot. This is probably as secluded as you can get in the desert without camping, and it's only a short drive to town. Terri was easy to work with from beginning to end: cordial, helpful, accommodating.
A couple caveats, though nothing unreasonable: The swamp cooler is loud to sensitive ears like mine, so you may need to wear earplugs or make do with the ceiling fan. And water pressure is low (the place is a Tiny House in the middle of the desert, after all), so you may need to save some bathroom functions for public facilities. Ahem.
My girlfriend and I stayed at Terri's for a weekend at Joshua Tree. We can't say enough good things! The tiny cottage is located about 15 minutes from Joshua Tree, 10 minutes from Pappy & Harriet's, and 25 minutes from The Integratron. Terri met us upon our arrival and showed us around the property. She lives next door and made herself available should we ever need anything during our stay. We would have never even noticed we had neighbors because this cottage provides privacy and feels so cozy. We would usually spend the days exploring and come back to the place for meals and rest. The cottage itself is tiny, but perfect for two people. We had everything we needed while staying there. If you are looking for a simple place to relax and get outdoors, this is a great find. Terri was a wonderful host and I hope we make it back for another trip in the near future!
Camp Terri was awesome! She made us feel very welcome. The cottage was indeed cozy, and very comfortable for a couple. The vantage point from that location provided spectacular views of storms moving across the desert. Close to J-Tree, and Pioneertown. The unit has its own gate and parking, leaving us feeling like we could come and go without disturbing Terri.
Super cute and definitely cozy cottage. Small but comfortable and with all necessities provided. Lovely sitting outside for early morning breakfast and night time star gazing. Watch your head getting up from the loft bed and careful with the ladder before you're completely awake. :) Terri was helpful with driving directions and was a welcoming host. A great place to stay for a weekend in Joshua Tree.
I had an amazing experience in this cozy desert cottage! It was even better than I expected. Very cute yard and outside patio with a bbq. It was also very private! Had a lot of fun and would recommend this to place to anyone visiting Joshua tree!
Camp Terri was a lovely experience. I came to spend a few days hiking through Joshua Tree National Park, which was either 40 minutes or 10 minutes away, depending on the trails I wanted to hike. The space was tidy when I arrived, had everything I needed to prep my day hike meals. Terri was very accommodating. It's was nice having my very own cottage for a few days and I would definitely return again.
