A magical homesteader cabin embedded in 2.5 acres of unfenced Joshua Tree desert wilderness, 15 minutes from downtown Joshua Tree, 18 minutes from the National Park. Experience peace, quiet, wildlife and STARS — on the grid but off the pavement.

The space
Stay in this lovely, gently renovated piece of history. Pioneering homesteaders came to this area over 50 years ago and built small cabins on large tracts of land, some of them pre-fabs. This is one of them!

Less than 15 minutes' drive from downtown Joshua Tree, on 2.5 acres of unfenced land. Spectacular views, and desert wildlife, flora and fauna.

Cabin includes:
-outdoor "under the stars" hot shower
-indoor 1/2 bathroom with sink and flush toilet
-full kitchen (incl stove, oven and cookware)
-queen-sized bed in the bedroom
-wireless hi-speed internet
- Please note that there is a fireplace in the cabin, * but it does not work. *

Please note that we have a TWO-NIGHT MINIMUM ON WEEKENDS (Fri-Sat-Sun), and a THREE-NIGHT MINIMUM FOR LABOR DAY WEEKEND. This requirement allows us to keep our per-night rate low, so that the greatest number of folks get a chance to experience being here in the unfenced desert, under the Milky Way.

Joshua Tree National Park is a 18-minute drive from the cabin. The Integratron and Giant Rock are also 15 minutes away. The cabin is less than two miles from artist Noah Purifoy's famous sculpture garden site. Two miles in the other direction is Dhamma Dena, a Vipassana Buddhist retreat center. The always swinging Pappy & Harriet's BBQ and music roadhouse in beautiful Pioneertown is a 30-minute drive. The Lou Harrison House, which hosts occasional devotional, folk and avant garde music events in an intimate setting is less than 10 minutes away. We will be happy to give you directions to each of these unique places (and many others) that we frequent ourselves.

The cabin is located next to BLM land and a wildlife corridor, which means you will witness these wild animals in their native habitat. The cottontail rabbits, cactus wrens, lizards, desert tortoises, jackrabbits, coyotes, owls and roadrunners (and more!) that make the desert their home make a visit to this serene cabin all the more special.

We donate 2.5% of our proceeds to the Mojave Desert Land Trust, an excellent local non-profit organization devoted to protecting the Mojave Desert ecosystem and its scenic and cultural resource values.

Guest access
The entire cabin and 2.5 acres of the property will be yours alone to enjoy during your stay.

Other things to note
NOTE: Out of consideration for our neighbors, the fragility of the property, and the nature of the surrounding wilderness, ONLY YOU, THE REGISTERED AIRBNB GUEST, may be present at this property. You may not have visiting guests over for any period of time. This is non-negotiable. If you violate this rule, you will be asked to leave immediately.

Extra guests can sleep on the air mattress or camp on the site for an additional $30/person per night. This is subject to our approval, and absolutely must be arranged with us at least 24 hours of advance. DO NOT SHOW UP WITH EXTRA GUESTS. They will not be able to stay, and you will be asked to leave immediately.
