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, and a THREE-NIGHT MINIMUM FOR LABOR DAY WEEKEND. 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. No drones. No ORVs. Nothing mechanical and moving is allowed on the property or over 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.
Just a wonderful quiet place. Everything was as described - even nicer! The welcome warm and easy. A place I would go back anytime!
We enjoyed staying at the cabin! Although we did not see the stars because of cloudy weather we did enjoy the quiet environment. The dirt road was no problem to drive.
This place is amazing! So peaceful and Stephanie and Jay made us feel at home.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Jay and Stephanie! The cabin was beautiful and serene and was equipped with everything you would need for a comfortable stay.
Overall a wonderful and peaceful experience. The home is exactly as pictured along with AC that came in handy with the summer heat! The land was so fun to explore and the sunsets were breathtaking! Perfect for star gazing and being surrounded by nature. It was a great place to go in and out of the park throughout our stay! Also- Angela's juices were delicious!
Absolutely beautiful homestead, a one of a kind experience, and highly recommended.
Jay promptly arrived once we reached the cabin and thoroughly explained how everything worked and what we'd encounter in our stay. He was a great communicative host. The cabin is pictured as you see it here and experiencing the desert landscape right at your door, complete with serene silence, was a calming, yet enthralling experience. I live in the desert as well but it's such an irony that I had to travel 3 hours to truly see and live in it. "Jackrabbit Homestead" is a great read for your stay that describes the history of this restored cabin and other abandoned homes you may see along your trip here.
