Two rustic, no frills homestead cabins on 5 acres in a great area. Main cabin is your sleeping cabin. Second cabin a few steps away is your bathroom cabin. About 1.4 miles (as the crow flies) to the Indian Cove entrance station. Short drive to either 29 Palms or Joshua Tree entrance to the Park. Isolated and private, yet easy access to amenities in either JTree or 29 Palms. Nice old west vibe with great views and lots of privacy! An authentic desert experience!!

Great little casita between joshua tree and 29 palms, near the entrance to indian cove campground. after four days camping in the park with our 8-month-old, this was the perfect place to land for a couple days of relaxation. Peter describes the place as no-frills, which is true…
