The very fun Thunderbird Lodge Retreat AURORA CLUB HOUSE is decorated with a rustic flair and loads of games both inside and out. This is a great space to escape the city lights for a getaway with friends and/or family for a truly relaxing vacation while immersing yourself in the seclusion, tranquility, and natural beauty of the Mojave Desert. The private property, that rests on 5 picturesque acres, features two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and sleeps 6. Board games galore, poker table, basketball hoop, dart board, wood paneling, lots of plaid, an eclectic assortment of unique wall adornments, full kitchen, and fire pit. This is a great space for "kids" of all ages who want to hang out and enjoy each other's company while playing board games and shooting hoops. Secure, pet-friendly yard for even the most Houdiniesque of dogs. Relaxing covered back porch is a great space to take in the spectacular sunset with a beer. The Aurora Club House also has room for campers and RVs, but we have no hookups (sorry!). Located on La Contenta near the Covington Flats entrance to the National Park, near lots of hiking trails.

Excellent site. Semi-secluded, enough to play music indoors in the evening without bothering anyone - neighbors are more than a few acres away. Dirt road to house is a tad bumpy but par for the course for Joshua Tree area, and not a concern. Host accommodated all of our needs and had VERY plentiful resources available for us - board games, full kitchen, fire ring, grills, and enough blankets for our group of 14 to be cozy at night. Would definitely book again!
