Beautiful patch of desert, lots of privacy, comfortable beds and wacky design touches that my 5 year old loved. Perfect for a family, we used all the games they had on hand. Very clean and lots of little touches like the battery powered faux candles that came in handy when a thunderstorm briefly took out the power. Lori texted back immediately when I had any questions. We’ll be back for sure!

Fun place to stay! Weather was chilly, but the beds were cozy with lots of warm blankets! Had fun exploring the dirt roads on our mountain bikes. The alien decor inside and out at Space Mountain house kept us entertained.

This place was the perfect getaway. The house is clean, nicely decorated with a quirky alien/space theme, and the kitchen is well appointed. It has everything you need to make a meal. Lori is attentive and an amazing host.

The house was extremely clean and everything we needed was provided! Great to be able to have wifi, cooling, and a shower post-hikes in JT to plan out our days and next hikes. One thing that is tough with JT is that dogs are not allowed on the hiking trails, but they are allowed at Lori’s place and on the dirt roads around JT (right by the house) so we walked our dog along La Contenta and Covington Flat road, which turned our great. The house itself has lots of cool and funky art + trinkets that make it fun to explore. Lastly the view of the mountains and the sunset is incredible and the stars are amazing late at night.

This house was along a dirt road that was a bit hard to traverse in our Model 3, but once we arrived we were stunned by the artwork and configuration. It was abound with alien pieces, broken down objects, and had an overall rundown creepy vibe. There was plenty of outdoor seating to enjoy the beautiful starry night sky, and even a clothes hanger. Great opportunity for a desert hike surrounding the property. The only hiccup was the place was double booked through AirBnb by another group, but since we got there first we claimed Mountain House! Would recommend to anyone looking for a unique spin on a desert getaway!

I loved this place! The alien decor was perfect, the house was much more spacious than it looks in pictures, and the property was BEAUTIFUL. I will definitely book this spot again!

Super fun. We had a great time in this secluded little desert getaway. Outdoor deck, fire pit and fire wood supplied by host. The place was neat and clean. Some fun and interesting artwork on display. We enjoyed our stay.
