Hidden Passage Guest Ranch is a one of a kind stay in the Sand to Snow National Monument with historic well-preserved original homestead cottages nestled in a private canyon. Make our ranch your home base for exciting adventures-birdwatching in Big Morongo Canyon Preserve, hiking in Joshua Tree and Whitewater Preserve. Or stay right here and hike our amazing trails, cool off in the ranch's large infinity pool, BBQ at night, and gaze at the starry night skies. Experience abundant nature & quiet.

The space
First pet stays free! No one under 18 allowed.

Muse is a private, indoor/outdoor infused cottage, nestled against dramatic canyon walls with large patio offering expansive views (with shade sail in summer), a kitchen with mini-fridge, bathroom with slipper tub, queen bed with memory foam mattress, smart TV, BBQ, air conditioning and heating. Enjoy spectacular star gazing, relaxation, leisurely walks and adventures in a pristine natural environment completely surrounded by protected Wilderness Area.

A favorite feature of the ranch is our pool. The mountain-water infinity pool is shared only with Hidden Passage guests in our four other rentals, and has spectacular 360-degree views of the surrounding mountains that anchors the ranch. The pool is open year-round for poolside lounging in the sun, even if the water is too cold for swimming. Swimming season starts when nights warm in April and usually goes through September.

Note: Due to weather conditions, in winter months the shade sails may be taken down.

Hidden Passage Guest Ranch is located in a secluded 130-acre canyon – an island within the Sand to Snow National Monument -- with miles of unforgettable and exhilarating pet friendly hiking trails right outside your back door. Magical, serene and extremely private, each accommodation is set off by itself, so there’s no worry about crowds or “too close” quarters.

In response to coronavirus/COVID-19, we are adhering to CDC guidelines for appropriate cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting protocols. Your safety and comfort is our priority.

Hidden Passage is located in the center of the desert, with convenient access to Joshua Tree, Palm Springs and Pioneertown.

We have other accommodations within Hidden Passage, as well as at our sister properties. (Click on Diane’s “superhost” picture to see all 14 listings.)

Note: Guests must be 18 or older.
