The space
Welcome to the Sunlight Ranch!

The Sunlight Ranch and all of the trailers located on it, are powered by solar energy allowing them to work congruent with the natural environment. Our permaculture ranch features a grey water system, rain water harvesting, a greenhouse, development methods that incorporate the re-purposing of materials, and an overall REGENERATIVE lifestyle. During your stay, we hope you learn something and are inspired by our bio-cooperative designs!

The Rocket

The 1958 vintage Rocket , is a 7 x 38 foot trailer shaded by re-purposed trampolines! The themed interior is stunning. It is definitely a sight to see! The trailer has great air conditioning, as well as heating. The bedroom has a very comfortable queen bed that is equipped with a heated mattress bad. The sofa bed is adequate for two small to medium guests. We provide extra linens for additional guests so please specify the correct number of guests in your party. Coffee, filters, organic heavy cream, organic sugar, cooking oil and a small variety of spices are located in the trailer. Filtered water is also included via Brita Pitcher which is in the fridge. We provide bio-compatible soap and shampoo. Please be careful and try to make sure only water, mild soap, and non-whiting toothpaste goes down the drain. Our Grey water system provides life giving water to our plants and certain ingredients can be harmful to them. Sunlight Ranch is an observer of Dark Sky Association regulations, which creates the perfect stargazing experience.

Enjoy an out of this world experience in our Rocket Ship!

During your stay

If you want to talk water, energy or permaculture, then I am your guy! I will do my best to try and make time to discuss solar power, permaculture, and any bio-cooperative designs.Tesla vehicles as well.

If you are a musician, you can play at the open mics; Monday nights at Pappy and Harriet's in Pioneertown and Tuesdays at the Saloon in Joshua Tree. If you are an artist, just feeling the land ask us and we will give you a couple of ideas still in our pipeline and you can leave a calling card sample of your creativity on our land for future guests to enjoy. We have lots of materials to play with and the space to create.
