This is a nice private room attached to the main house of Terrace Ranch.
You share a bathroom in the red cabin (with other guests). It can comfortably sleep 2 adults. The whole place is huge and there are many spaces where you can lounge around. They have a jacuzzi where you can watch the sunset or go stargazing. The hosts Mike and Jeff are welcoming and accommodating. Their place is ideal for those who need some quiet or need to retreat somewhere peaceful, ideal for couples or solo travelers.

Terrace Ranch was hard to leave...
Terrace Ranch was the perfect place for R&R after hiking Joshua Tree for two days. Accommodating, friendly (just downright lovely), hosts/pets :)
The pics of the rooms/bathroom online don't do them justice. They are are newly built, modern, and (very) clean to boot! I don't know what mattress was in the room I stayed in, but it was magnificent. The property is warm, and welcoming, but the attention to detail steals your heart. I will be back for sure.

Terrace Ranch was the best way to end a long day of hiking, with all the accommodations and beautiful scenery!! Mike and Jeff are so kind and available to make your stay the best experience. We spent the night by a camp fire star gazing, and woke up to beautiful mountains right out the window. Could not have had a better time, we will be back!!

The Terrace Ranch was an incredible place to stay while staying in the Mojave near Joshua Tree. The hosts were so welcoming and helpful! They had the best recommendations for food and sites to check out. The space was so great and comfortable - outdoor cooking area, patio with hammock chairs and swings over looking the mountains, fire pit, etc. We planned on going out to Pappy and Harriets and some other local bars but ended up just staying in relaxing! Wish we could have stayed longer!

I LOVED my stay at Terrace Ranch (Room with a view). I needed some time alone and this was the perfect place to relax. Mike and Jeff are wonderful hosts. They have a beautiful home on a beautiful piece of land. The room with a view is cozy, cute and has some pretty sweet amenities (Alexa, smart TV- Hulu, Netflix, mini fridge, microwave, coffee maker, etc.). I spent a good amount of my time in the spa watching the sun set, sipping coffee on the veranda, reading, meditating, and listening to all the sounds of the wildlife in the area. An added bonus are the two lovely pets that live at Terrace Ranch (Pita the Pup and Five the Kitty)... Such loving animals.

I highly recommend this place to any solo travelers or couples. Thank you Mike and Jeff!!

I can't say enough wonderful things about our stay at the Terrace Ranch Room. The space is beautiful and luxurious, it feels so fresh, clean and light. You can tell a lot of thought, time and effort has gone into creating a most welcoming and comfortable place to stay. The hosts are easy going and super friendly. We especially enjoyed soaking in the hot tub under a bright starry sky and lounging on the deck surrounded by nature which included stunning views of the desert mountains, humming birds, woodpeckers, quails and bunny's. We felt so peaceful and at ease, we wished we could have stayed longer. I especially enjoyed the company of the sweetest dog and cat, who were very friendly and cuddly. I highly recommend this hipcamp to anyone who appreciates comfort and tranquility. I can't wait to go back! Thank you Mike and Jeff for sharing such a wonderful space!

Mike was an excellent host. And so were his pets! Great little private area with plenty of cozy decks and chairs to relax on. Room was nice and had everything we needed. Beautifully decorated with a handmade touch. Perfect for a little getaway to relax. We wish we brought stuff to bbq so we didn't have to go up and down that bumpy dirt road. Also we picked a very hot weekend, our bad! If i had to find a critic Id say the pillows were all thick which doesn't suit back sleepers. Great trip overall!
