About 1950 Spartan @ CampTemenōs
The 1950 Spartan Mansion: an immaculately-restored mind-blowing nomadic midcentury dwelling. This shiny work of art has a rich past; she served as a rolling home for a traveling family that worked on big contract jobs around the US in the fifties. The Spartan sleeps 3 and has a kitchen with original, working fridge and its own groovy bathroom with sink, toilet and hot/cold shower.
A perfect desert homestead for your next retreat.
Camp Temenōs sits on the north edge of the Pioneertown Mountains Preserve in California's Mojave Desert with a trail from our back gate into the preserve. (Guided hikes and breakfast available upon request and arranged in advance) We're 9 miles from Yucca Valley, 5 miles from charming Pioneertown and the legendary music venue Pappy & Harriet's, a 30 min drive to Joshua Tree National Park, an 18 min drive to the Integratron & Giant Rock, and a few minutes' walk away from sweet, complete solitude in a true desert wildland full of riparian corridors and boulder-rich canyons. The desert truly is alive and our neighborhood makes a great basecamp.
Our family home is in the center of a 1.25 acre property and there are 3 cultivated spaces available for rent in the corners of the acre (the 1950 Spartan Mansion, the large tipi and the small tipi) as well as several good tent spots and an RV electric hookup site (no septic).
We have a private, heated bathroom/showerhouse, a hot & cold outdoor shower, an outdoor kitchen with fridge, hot/cold dishwashing sink and campstove and several communal spaces on the property to enjoy a fire, grill, sit, contemplate... Temenos means sanctuary. We hope that you will enjoy the restorative sanctuary we are working on creating here.

The vibe at 1950 Spartan @ CampTemenōs
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
We had an amazing time and will recommend Camp Temenos to everyone we can. Karen and Chris did everything they could have to welcome us and make us feel at home. The spaces we stayed in were immaculate (both the Large Tipi and 1950 Spartan). The small touches throughout the property, both inside the spaces and outside, were definitely filled with love. We will be back!
