A magical homesteader cabin embedded in 5 acres of unfenced Joshua Tree desert wilderness, 12 minutes from downtown Joshua Tree. Experience peace, quiet, wildlife and STARS—on the grid but off the pavement.
*** If you would like to use our cabin as a shooting location please get in touch to discuss our rates, otherwise we do not allow commercial or professional shooting of any kind (photo, video, film) during your stay. Thank you in advance! ***
The restored cabin, which has been featured in the New York Times 'T' travel magazine, Wilder Quarterly, The Weekender and the book 'Jackrabbit Homestead,' was constructed in 1955 and still has its original green paint.
Joshua Tree National Park is a 15 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, teacher Ruth Denison's Vipassana Buddhist 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 sits on 5 acres, and feels remote, but it's just 12 minutes from downtown Joshua Tree. You will travel a few miles on a secure, hard dirt road to get here. Enjoy the spectacular panoramic sunset and sunrise—as well as a blanket of stars. In the wintertime, you can build a bonfire too. Sleep comfortably in a queen-sized bed.
The renovated interior has a cookware-outfitted kitchen and dining area. There is an outhouse with a dry toilet and roofless shower a few yards from the cabin. Wireless internet is available if you require a connection to the digital world. The cabin is equipped with air conditioning.
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.
Guests may have freshly prepared organic juices made by local juice cleanse guru Angela de la Agua delivered to the cabin. A menu/pricelist is available upon request.
Extra guests can sleep on the air mattress or camp on the site for an additional $30/person per night. This absolutely must be arranged with us ahead of time so that it can be reflected in the Airbnb reservation and bill.
Please note that we have a TW0-NIGHT MINIMUM stay. This requirement allows us to keep our rates low, so that the greatest number of folks get a chance to experience being here in the unfenced desert, under the Milky Way.
We donate 2.5% of our proceeds to the Mojave Desert Land Trust, an excellent local non-profit organization devoted to "protect[ing] the Mojave Desert ecosystem and its scenic and cultural resource values."
Upon your arrival, we will introduce you to how the cabin works, and to the land and its animals. We live up the road and will be available 24/7 during your stay.
CHECK-IN TIME is by appointment only, between 3pm-8pm. We recommend arriving before dark.
CHECK-OUT TIME is noon.
No smoking indoors. Smoking outdoors is permitted away from the cabin only, using an ashtray. We live in the wild and brushfire is a real possibility.
No firearms. We gotta say it.
Absolutely no commercial photography or filming is permitted on site without previous agreement with us.
Please check with us as to where you can roam on foot. The cabin is situated on five acres of near-wilderness, next to many more acres of BLM-owned wilderness, including a wash. We'll be happy to show you where the boundaries are, where the best views are, the best flowers, the tortoise burrows and so on.
Most importantly, do not harm or harass the wildlife or tamper in any way with their respective nests or burrows. We will explain to you what to do if you encounter specific animals (roadrunner, cactus wren, desert tortoise, coyote, snakes, etc) while you are here. We all live here together. It's easy to do.
This place is wonderful! My husband and I loved every minute we were there. It is so peaceful and quiet. We enjoyed sitting out on the porch and watching the sunset, stars and wildlife. The cabin is very well equipped and comfortable. Jay and Stephanie were very nice and informative.
Thank you for the wonderful stay. It was everything I expected and more. The bed was comfortable, the air conditioning worked quickly, the room was clean and simple and the shower was hot and the shower floor was made up of smooth stones. The bed faces a huge window that looks west, so when the sun rises it's not in your face, but instead lights up the desert landscape before you. Jay was quick and efficient in showing us the ropes. If you want a couple nights of serenity then this is your place. I will def. be back!
This was an amazing experience. The cabin is exactly as depicted, there are many thoughtful little touches and details, and it is the perfect backdrop/setting for relaxation, contemplation, quiet, and being in nature. Jay was very helpful and communicative, and we hope to visit again frequently. This was a special place for us.
I haven't language to describe the grace and spiritual center of Jay's and Stephanie's Soul Retreat in Joshua Tree. In a perfectly appointed one-room space, Jay and Stephanie have with careful but not precious precision have hand-crafted the Perfect Place on Earth. Every possible amenity and necessity has been anticipated, without a single excess: just the right number of pots, towels and pillows live happily with indulgent perfections: an abundance of magazines, a coffee grinder, a fast wi-fi, a hammock, excellent cell service, and an exquisitely designed separate facility for showering and toileting.
Jay met us at their home upon our arrival, not the least bit put out by our unanticipated tardiness. He kindly answered every question with patient sincerity, weathering my slavish St. Bernardish foamings. He had connected us to a beautiful Desert Spirit, Angela, whose fresh juices were delivered within an hour of our arrival. She walked in "our home" and we wanted to scoop her up and keep her with us, she so fully emanated the peace of the Almighty Desert.
I cannot give out any more stars. I am apoplectic with gratitude that Jay and Stephanie welcomed us home to their safe, electric, cozy, exhilarating piece of the World. One can become most fully realized and most fully rested, both, here.
the location is beautiful - quiet and private. Stephanie and jay are great. we particularly appreciate their care in preserving the desert plant and animal life. would definitely return....
