About this listing

Boulder House is a paradox: Raw beauty outside...Artist-designed luxury within. Sprawling space ...Intimate nooks throughout. Utter silence...with desert ghosts everywhere. Acres of seeming emptiness that somehow fulfill your deepest needs.

The Space

(please read entire description)

There's definitely a difference.
And if you're familiar with vacation rentals, you already know what we're talking about.
It's not about the fifteen private, boulder-strewn acres. Not about the sunsets and starscapes that make the nights as lit up and magical as the days. It's not even about the peace, the freedom and the electric energy that has drawn people to this area since the days of the Chemeheuvi.
What we're talking about is a level of luxury, detail and aesthetic sophistication rarely seen in such a romantically remote location.
There are Rooms carved out of rock. Handmade, artist-designed interior details you've never seen, anywhere.
Inside, Boulder House combines sprawling space with the cozy intimacy of a luxurious private home. There's a fully equipped kitchen, cable TV and wireless internet throughout. Giant boulders right outside the front door. Views for days. Extensive, private hiking trails. Period woodstove (wood provided) for nights around the fire. Powerful, dual zone heat and air ...basically, everything you need to enjoy a visit to the High Desert.
We've recently expanded our sleep options, so more friends and family can join. We sleep up to 14 comfortably, in beds. and we've spiffed up the pool, jacuzzi, outdoor shower, hammock and courtyard areas, so you'll be just as comfortable outside as in.
Have a bolder experience. At Boulder House.

Interaction with Guests

Everyone needs to have a conversation with me before they arrive. We, and a squadron of handymen, water delivery person, tech advisors, etc are available on an as-needed basis. There may be visits from a neighborhood security patrol. Events require the presence of a staff member from start to finish.

The Neighborhood

What we - and our neighbors!- love most about Pipes Canyon is its quiet majesty. Listen and you'll hear the desert come alive. Wildlife emerges, winds rustle, sometimes, water rushes through. At night the stars explode with life. IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT YOU RESPECT THE SERENITY HERE. We do not permit loud music, excessive lights, noise, traffic, or fires. These rules are enforced by our representatives at EVERY BOOKING. If you want a big,loud, crazy gathering - we wish you an amazing time - ELSEWHERE!

Other Things to Note

BOULDER HOUSE is a welcoming place. We love being the spot where people marry, celebrate birthdays, gather with friends and family. We will work with you to accommodate your needs, but you need to work with us, too. Our needs( requirements, really) are : QUIET gatherings that DO NOT DISTURB OUR NEIGHBORS with EXCESSIVE LIGHTING, FIRE OF ANY KIND, ABUSE OF OUR NEIGHBOR-MAINTAINED DIRT ROAD, ASKING FOR DIRECTIONS ( we provide a pretty infallible directions packet) or PARKING ON NEIGHBORS' PROPERTY.
