Joshua Tree NP -->15 Min Drive
Pappy & Harriet’s -->8 Min Drive

It sits in a rocky canyon among ancient pinyon pine trees whose roots sustain the trees by following — and further opening — cracks in the rock where water accumulates. Among the diverse fauna dotting the floor of the canyon are desert scrub oaks, Joshua trees, yuccas, cholla, and creosote.

The canyon is sparsely populated and largely undeveloped. The dirt road that leads to the accommodation and ends just to the west, where the canyon abuts on endless wilderness. Members of the small, private community share a deep regard for the serene remoteness and ecological vibrance of the area. The vistas and geologic formations rival the most striking destinations in the National Park.

Hiking opportunities abound and bird watching is remarkably worthwhile throughout the year. Listen carefully after a rain storm — you’ll notice a rare desert soundtrack as waterfalls and washes spring to life. Most winters bring at least a dusting of snow — a surreal sight to behold against the desert landscape.

Here Are a Few Kind Words From Our Recent Guests:

-”Beautiful, contemporary home nestled in the rocks. Top of the line outdoor kitchen, most comfortable bed & luxurious linens. Thoughtful touches everywhere. We enjoyed our stay & I would definitely come again.” -Adam

-”The location is perfect, totally secluded with beautiful scenic views. The house is absolutely incredible - so modern and very cozy!" -Amelia

-”You are surrounded by these giant rocks all around you. The cowboy tub and jacuzzi were perfect to spend some time in.The hammocks are great to lay on at night and watch the stars. The house has floor-to-ceiling windows with automatic shades. The views are stunning. It is a beautiful desert!” -Tina

This two bedroom home can comfortably sleep up to 4 guests. Private, adjoining patios and floor to ceiling windows encourage movement between indoor and outdoor spaces. Each bedroom features a California king bed, Parachute Linens, Blacksaw alpaca textiles, and a desk to write or work.
Both bathrooms include walk-in showers, and a washer and dryer are available for any laundry needs. For maximum privacy, the two bedrooms and baths are located on opposite ends of the house.

The kitchen, dining area and living room are positioned in the open center of the house, where 13 foot ceilings and soaring walls of glass frame the majesty of the desert backdrop.

This kitchen is equipped with a Wolf Range, fridge, freezer, and dishwasher, and the drawers are stocked with dishes and utensils. With Le Creuset bakeware, a Kitchen-aid Mixer, and an abundance of serving trays, this kitchen is a chef’s dream! There’s also a coffee maker, french press and blender so you can whip up your morning beverage of choice.

The warm, wood dining table and Danish Raholt dining chairs accommodate six people. The outdoor dining table is located on the main deck, which extends the length of the house. We recommend at least one meal under the stars; with so little light pollution in the canyon, the night sky’s constellations are especially brilliant.

Although you might be tempted to forgo technology during your stay, the living room has a smart TV and bluetooth speaker so you can stream your favorite shows. Prepare a drink at the bar, grab a Phaidon design book, and settle in among vintage bedouin pillows while the sun sets across the boulders.

The house offers generous shaded sitting areas outside for comfort, even at the height of summer. A propane fire feature invites guests to pull chairs close for magical nights, even when the weather turns cool.

After a day of activities, follow a short path to a secluded group of boulders where a hot tub awaits, along with a “cowboy tub” — a repurposed galvanized stock tank offering cool dips in warm weather. Hammocks and a Petanque court are scattered in different corners of the property! ATVs and dirt bikes are not allowed on this property and cannot be used off road in this neighborhood.

Parking is available for at least 3 vehicles.

The property is equipped with WiFi, heating, and air conditioning.

Visitors come to the High Desert for its unique landscape, culture, and recreational opportunities, as well as for the weather - hot and dry summers and mild winters at our high altitude. Joshua Tree and the communities surrounding the Joshua Tree National Park include Flamingo Heights, Pioneertown, Morongo Valley, Yucca Valley, and Landers. You’ll be close to all the action. Some of our favorite options available to you:

–Joshua Tree National Park: 800,000 acres of mystical beauty - Joshua Tree National Park is one of the world’s most incredible natural desert treasures. Sweeping, grand in scale and populated by granite monoliths and voluptuous rock and boulder formations. This quiet land, conducive to meditation and roaming, was carved by extremes in climate - wind, rain and an ever-present, relentless sun. Diverse forms of plant life are found everywhere, but none as unique or prevalent as the park’s namesake: the Joshua tree, standing majestically across the vast topography.

–Pioneertown: Step back in time to thus rustic Old West-style village. Wander through the historic buildings, visit unique shops, catch a live music performance at Pappy & Harriets, and experience the Wild West charm.

• The Integratron: New age-y healing destination with a sound bath, originally designed by ufologist George Van Tassel with the goal of reversing the aging process.

Pipes Canyon is one of the most sought-after locations in the High Desert. It’s close to everything – and yet very much set apart with next to no light or noise pollution. The area is surrounded by dramatic flat-top lava buttes, towering and weathered boulders, and an abundance of Joshua trees.

Pipes Canyon is immediately adjacent to the Sand to Snow National Monument as well as the Pioneertown Mountains Preserve, both offering endless hiking and exploring opportunities, and the West Entrance of Joshua Tree National Park is about 30 minutes away by car.

• Joshua Tree Village (20-minute drive) - Quirky strip of boutiques and restaurants, including Coyote Corner, Space Cowboy Books, and the rustic Joshua Tree Saloon

• The Integratron (20-minute drive) - New age-y healing destination with a sound bath, originally designed by ufologist George Van Tassel with the goal of reversing the aging process.
• Palm Springs (45-minute drive) - Artsy town known for vintage shopping, art galleries, and the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway.
