Directions were accurate, the site is private and very special! As my better half said, "You have to come here with a sense of humor." Whimsical in the house, Western Town out back. We used the fire pit and the BBQ. We brought our own wood and charcoal. We enjoyed whiskey in the saloon as we played cards. Great for a large family for a three day weekend. Highly recommend! Thanks Lori!

The site was awesome, my group and I had tons of fun at the lodge. It's a great space to hang out and have a good group of people and have some fun.
It was a little spooky we found out theres some haunted hike nearby, which we never got the chance to do. That would've been some fun.
The house house all necessities, plenty of cooking supplies, toiletries, and blankets if needed.
Although there weren't that many spots for everybody to sleep in comfortably, I would definitely work out sleeping arrangements a lot better before going next time.
It's not too far from Joshua Tree National Park which was pretty nice.
And we had some dessert friends visit us as well which is expected, like dessert mice and coyotes (make friends, not foes with them).

We can't say enough amazing things about the Ranch House. The cabin was quirky and cozy, it fit our group of 7 perfectly. The kitchen had everything we needed as well (coffee grinder, pots/pans, but bring your own spices/oils). There are so many amazing places to sit outside, but the SALOON was definitely our favorite place to hang out. We'd go there for our morning coffee, daytime drinks, dance parties, you name it. Amazing views of the mountain.

It's definitely an older cabin, but we loved that about it. So many cool knick knacks all around. Also some desert mice outside, but they're harmless.. just keep the door closed.

We will absolutely be coming back here. Lori and Roy were the most incredible hosts and super communicative. Thank you both so much!!!

What a funky spot, all the decorations and nick-nacks are too perfect. Even in 112 degree weather, the small cabin was a relief and was constantly pumping air conditioning. We cooled off with the hose during the day and danced under the stars at night in the mini el darado. Would highly recommend this place and would keep coming back
