Chateau Sonoma is a sprawling and comfortable guest house backed up against the 150,000 acre Sand to Snow National Monument with abundant wildlife and pristine desert landscapes. Needless to say, the views are remarkable.

The large guest home is divided into 3 private suites on separate sides of the guest house with a shared Lodge area that includes a large kitchen, living room, dining room and den.

Suite #1 is our Grove Suite which is a separate apartment/suite within the large guest house, and has its own private entrance, two bedrooms, 1 bathroom, evaporative cooling, heat, WiFi, TV, and a kitchenette. Guests can choose to be self-contained in their suite, or choose to also use the shared kitchen and living area in the main Lodge area. Pets brought by other guests may be present on the premises.

This suite’s outdoor patio looks to mountain views to the north. (If you have a dog and wanted to let it run, the dog park is visible from this deck.) Feet away is the Ying Yang meditation garden. The large covered patio is very accessible from this suite.

The Grove Suite is connected to the west side of the house with beautiful views of the mountains in the Sand to Snow National Monument. The two bedrooms are connected both by a hallway and directly through a shared door. The hallway contains a kitchenette with a coffee pot, microwave and mini fridge. The suite has a very large bathroom with shower and tub. The space has an exterior door leading to a private patio area with a BBQ and shade trees and lots of acres for you to explore.

Chateau Sonoma is a great base to explore all the desert has to offer; it is only 20 minutes to the Joshua Tree National Park entrance, 20 minutes to Pioneertown and 20 minutes to Palm Springs.

Sonoma is part of the 25 acres Chateaus Estate that is tucked against the mountains and Sand to Snow National Monument. Spectacular star gazing, relaxation, leisurely walks or serious hiking into the pristine environment of the protected Wilderness of the Sand to Snow National Monument.

The Chateaus Estate while being quietly tucked against the mountains is close to the main road (Hwy 62) so that it is convenient to get to other key areas of the desert. (As said so often, don’t get left at the end of the road” of Joshua Tree proper.)

Chateaus amenities:

-Availability of the rest of the “Chateaus Lodge” (5000 sq ft home) which has large dining area, large kitchen, living room and huge outdoor patio.
-Dog park for the pooch.
-Loop Trail Hike; ¾ mile loop: travels along the mountain ridge of the Chateaus that is arguably the most spectacular view in all of the high desert. Go to “Crow’s Nest”, one of our “Panorama Pass Challenge” Vistas. Meanders through a classic, unfettered desert wash.

-Ying-Yang Meditation Circle.

-Hiking right out your back door, or visit nearby Joshua Tree, Pioneertown, Palm Springs and other nearby locations. Located 20 minutes from Palm Springs and Joshua Tree National Park with the perfect weather in the high desert to enjoy any season
-For guests over 18 years old, a pass to Hidden Passage Estate that is on the other side of the mountain (see map in photos):
- The infinity pool at Hidden Passage fed from mountain water feed. The pool is open year-round for poolside lounging in the sun, even if the water is too cold for swimming. Swimming season starts when warms in Spring and usually goes through late Fall. Note: Due to weather conditions, in winter months the pool shade sails may be taken down. Over 18 years old only.
- Hike from Hidden Passage into the miles and miles of pristine Wilderness trails where you will never see a soul . . . unless it’s our guests. (Trail map in Apollo Community Center.)

There is also the option to book the entire Chateau Sonoma home, which includes 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, huge kitchen and dining room, living room, media room, multiple patios (including a spectacular private patio with astonishing views on the upstairs Vineyard Suite, which also features a king memory foam mattress), and all necessities to make your stay easy and enjoyable (sheets, towels, utensils, pots/pans, etc.).

Where you’ll be

Morongo Valley, California, United States

Morongo Valley is a beautiful and centrally located in the high desert community. Enjoying weather much cooler then Palm Springs, and is the closest part of the high desert to Palms Springs (only 20 minutes). To the east is Yucca Valley with plenty of restaurants and grocery stores. Pioneertown and the famous music venue Pappy and Harriet's is just a 20 minute drive. The west entrance to Joshua Tree National Park is a 25 minute drive and the Black Rock Canyon area of the Park is even closer.

Morongo Valley itself has great hiking. The Valley has more natural water sources than surrounding areas. Big Morongo Canyon has beautiful wetlands with trees and lots of wildlife. The Valley is also surrounded by the Sand to Snow National Monument. The Monument is comprised of 150,000 acres that span from nearly sea level in the Coachella Valley to over 12,000 feet at the top of Mount San Gorgonio in the San Bernardino Mountains.
