Our modern 600 sqft retreat is nestled on 5 acres of desert land across the mountain ranges of the Joshua Tree National Park, just 15-min drive from the North Entrance. A home away from home, it's equipped with all the essentials, an over-sized swamp cooler, and a heating system, plus a few perks — gaze under the starry night in our wood-fired hot tub, which also doubles as a cool soak pool by day in the summer, a large covered patio, panoramic views of the desert mountains. You'll love it here!
