This 900 square foot one bedroom cabin is situated on 15 acres. I invite you to sit outside on the bi-level deck and take in the brightly colored sky at dusk. The living room's sliding glass door faces west, thus welcoming in plenty of natural lighting throughout the day. Mountain House, with its artistic decorations and vintage furnishings, will warmly welcome up to six guests.
I live on La Contenta Rd. (the same street on which Shell, Mountain, and Rock house reside) so I'm around should you have any questions while visiting. Though I'm close by, all of my cabins are private, secluded, and separate from my own home.
In order to preserve the land from development, to restore the integrity of these homesteader cabins, and to upcycle discarded slabs of granite into artistic tile work, I started Thunderbird Lodge Retreat in 2011.

This place was the perfect weekend getaway. Secluded, quiet, and serene. The most impressive aspect was the privacy. Lori made herself very available but I never saw her if I didn't need to. Really made the place feel like a true escape. Would definitely go back.
The privacy and rustic accommodations were perfect for our spring break adventure. I appreciated the closeness to Joshua tree during the day and the fire pit outside at night during the blood moon. Thanks for sharing your place Lori.
Amazing place, down a sandy track, great views and fantastic fire pit.
My stay at Mountain House couldn't have been any better - it's a cozy, well-appointed space that's just a stone's throw away from Joshua Tree park. And Lori was supremely responsive and helpful. Would stay again in a heartbeat!
We enjoyed our stay at the Mountain House. The house fit our needs and was comfortable and clean with a bit of funky charm. Especially liked the wood burning stove as it was a bit chilly at night. The stove warmed up the large living/dining room/sleeping area very well as did the electric radiator in the bedroom.
The location is excellent for visiting The National Park.
I would recommend the Mountain House as a fun base for exploring Joshua Tree.
The mountain house is one of our new favorite places--it's very spacious and beautifully decorated, with sprawling desert views on all sides and a perfect patio for watching the sunrise and sunset. Even though it feels nice and remote, it's a quick drive to the main drag in Joshua Tree, as well as JT National Park. While I didn't meet Lori in person, she was super pleasant and responsive via text, and made the check-in/check-out process easy. We would love to stay here again.
Great place!!! Rustic and Artsy; had everything we needed. Best Location!!! Right at the edge of Joshua National Park; Gorgeous garden just need some tidy up from unused items. We had a great time!!!!
I had such a great time staying at Thunderbird lodge!! So quirky and comfy. Absolutely beautiful, and so close to Joshua Tree national park!! Lori (the owner) was extremely helpful. I highly recommend staying here!
Well off the beaten path, awesome place, great view, best sunset in the desert. Very private, wood stove, everything you need in the kitchen. Clean, nicely furnished, cool furniture. We felt like we were staying at a cool aunt's house in the desert, while she went salmon fishing in Alaska. Fenced in yard for our dog! AWESOME!!!! For the same price as a hotel you get a cool house with a yard for your dog/dogs! Lori stopped by and dropped off firewood, she's was very respectful of our privacy, left us alone. Dirt road to get there, hardly any people around. Feels like you're staying in a house in Joshua Tree National park. In fact, this might be the last house before the park. Great place! We can't wait to go back!!!!!
Loved Lori's place. The Mountain House was very clean and comfortable with an amazing view. Loved her upcycled, desert-eclectic style. We had a blast and Lori was great. Very close to Joshua Tree National Park. Would highly recommend.
