Great location
95% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Rimrock is surrounded by wide open Preservation land, Mountains and Rock vistas. It is a small community located approx. 5 miles past Pappy & Harriet's. Your cozy, private studio cabin is set on a shaded, tranquil Oasis with lots of unique things to explore. An escape from chaos with all the comforts of home. Please note before booking: the bathroom is detached and it’s an outdoor shower. It is very close to the Cabin and we have hot water, however you should consider it before booking.

The space
The Cabin is the size of a standard one bedroom. It is cozy and comfortable. There kitchenette (on porch) with refrigerator, coffee maker, refrigerator, microwave. There is NO sink- closest water resource is the hose and bathroom. If you know that you will be cooking, let me know so I can have make sure you have the proper utensils.
Wifi and mobile service is NOT great. I find texting works well. I have a landline should you need it and/or give it out if you need to be contacted. Phone number hidden by Airbnb) ).
We have set it up as a SELF CHECK-IN, however we are available 24/7 and we live on the property, however the cabin is completely separate and private from our home.
Animals/Pets: We have 3 dogs. They are extremely friendly. If they are out, they may come down to say "hello". They are super nice and they are only out when we are home.

MISCELLANEOUS:
We tried to create a rustic/vintage vibe therefore the bathroom sink and tub are antiques. Due to their age, they have rust stains. Trust me, they are clean. We had a Guest that perhaps is to young to appreciate "older things" because she had thought it was not clean. I felt very bad that she left with that impression. Therefore, I thought I should mention it.

SOUND BATH: If you are interested in booking a Sound Bath experience, please let me know and I will send information.

Lastly, upon arrival: kick back, relax, explore the grounds and chill….

Additional description (this may be duplicate information):
The Love Shack is a small cozy cabin (approx. 10x12) located in a true Desert Oasis known as Rimrock. Rimrock is a unique area bordering Pioneertown, CA. We are located, above Yucca Valley and at the base of Big Bear. Because we are 4,600 feet above sea level (just at the snow line), the summers are 10-15 degrees cooler than nearby Joshua Tree and 15-20 degrees cooler than Palm Springs. In addition the trees on our property provide lots of shade, cool breezes and the tranquil sounds of birds.
The cabin itself has a rustic feel with all the comforts of home.
The bathroom is detached and only steps away from the cabin with an outside shower. Towels, soap, shampoo, hair dryer provided. You will find sweatshirts, hats, games, sunblock, mini travel iron/board, water, BBQ with charcoal, fire pit with wood, dishes, utensils, extra blankets and a First Aid Kit. Please let me know in advance if you will need a: blender, magic bullet, toaster oven and/or a slow cooker and I will be sure they are available. If you forget something, I'm sure we can provide it!

We do not require a minimum night stay. However from time to time Guest's request to stay another night. We are typically booked but we can provide add other accommodations either at our other location (Maglietto's Star Gazer) or a Vintage Trailer located on our property. For more information on the Trailer, please email. The Star Gazer is listed on Airbnb. The Star Gazer has a different feel, i.e it's a wide open space with beautiful views! It is located across the street from a funky western town and steps away from Pappy and Harriet's.

Guest access
Private detached Cabin and Bathroom offering complete privacy and seclusion. The Bathroom is steps away from the cabin with an outside shower for Love Shack Guests only. Feel free to roam around our property.

Other things to note
Before your visit, I recommend checking the weather. The weather in the desert can be erratic. Also, if you're planning to prepare meals you may want to pick up groceries on your way up. There are lots of stores close by in Yucca Valley (10 miles) but once you get here it has a way of sucking you in for the long haul. We do supply charcoal and firewood. In addition, if you're planning to visit the Sound Bath (The Integratron) or Pappy and Harriet's you will need a reservation.

Welcome to our special cabin. A few things to note: Complimentary water will be provided upon arrival. Mobile service is intermittent - AT&T seems to work best. Unfortunately, wifi is not the best up here. Ideally, it's best if you can go without it, however if it's a must, you will have decent internet service at the picnic bench. If you can wait til you're in town, the Frontier Cafe, and Starbucks and several other retail establishments (Pappy and Harriet's) offer wifi.

Things to bring:
light jacket, sweater/sweatshirt, sunscreen, lip balm, hat, comfortable shoes (hiking shoes/flip flops). The High Desert is a very casual place and the weather can be unpredictable, therefore I recommend dressing in layers as well as comfortable, light clothing, i.e. linen, jeans, flip flops, tee shirts, tank tops, sun dresses, etc.

Location

Pioneertown, California, United States

Rimrock is a small community approx. 5 miles West of Pioneertown, CA. Pi Town, as it is often referred, started as a live-in Old West motion picture set, built in the 1940s. Pi Town is the home of the famous Pappy & Harriet's Saloon.
It is easily accessed via Pioneertown Road at California State Route 62 in the town of Yucca Valley. The gently winding, four-mile (6 km) drive northwest to Pioneer town has been designated a California Scenic Drive.

The town started as a live-in Old West motion-picture set, built in the 1940s. The set was designed to provide a place for the actors to live while using their homes in the movie. A number of Westerns and early television shows were filmed in Pioneertown, including The Cisco Kid and Edgar Buchanan's Judge Roy Bean.
Roy Rogers, Dick Curtis, and Russell Hayden were among the original developers and investors, and Gene Autry frequently taped his show at the six-lane Pioneer Bowl bowling alley.
