Whitewater Cabin: Desert Retreat

2 sites · Lodging4 acres · Whitewater, CA
Featured on the Discovery Plus Magnolia network, this architectural marvel is a magical retreat set amid the beautiful Whitewater nature preserve. Massive hand-carved cedar timbers form a bucolic A-frame exterior, while thoughtful, luxurious décor presents an ideal atmosphere for romance…or simply escaping the hustle and bustle. And adventure is never far. Explore Whitewater Preserve, enjoy a desert hike, plunge into the oasis pool and then settle in for some truly remarkable stargazing. The only A-frame log cabin in the California Desert, Whitewater Cabin boasts 18-inch, hand–carved cedar timbers imported from the mountains of British Columbia. Its open concept design with warm interiors, comfortable furnishings and expansive windows that flood the space with natural light make this the perfect mountain getaway. Whitewater Cabin is located in Whitewater, CA just 10 miles northwest of Palm Springs, 45 minutes from Joshua Tree and two hours east of Los Angeles. Whitewater is a local secret: a small, hidden town you might just miss, despite being right off the 10 Freeway. Once there, however, you will find the area full of magic. Sitting on five unexpectedly lush acres and surrounded by BLM land, Whitewater Cabin features an ever running stream that runs right next to the Cabin. This stream, fed by water from the San Gorgonio Mountains, creates a verdant oasis full of hiking trails that begs for exploration. Drive just 6 minutes from the Cabin’s door and you will find yourself in the Whitewater Preserve, a gateway to the San Gorgonio Wilderness Backcountry. Whitewater is the historic Native American Cahuilla Indian village formerly named Wanapiapa (Place of Water). You can simultaneously relax, brush up on your photography, study some of the rare birds in the nearby oasis as well as explore the diverse nature at your doorstep. And if you’re a nature lover who also loves style, shop the likes of Gucci, Tom Ford, YSL, Alexander McQueen and more at the Desert Hills Premium Outlets, a mere 15 minute drive away. All hail the king of glamping. Welcome to Whitewater Cabin. Amenities: · Secluded location at the Whitewater nature preserve · Made from 300 year old Canadian timbers · 2 story A-frame with sweeping views · Romantic King sized canopy bed · Large bathroom with clawfoot tub · Expansive Deck to take in the views · Cozy 2 person cedar hot tub · Outdoor gas fireplace · Outdoor gas fireplace · Cowboy tub with adjacent 2-person hammock · Hiking trails starting on property leading to flowing streams At Whitewater Cabin, not only will you be able to access our stunning, remote 5 acre property but also the surrounding area. Our property borders BLM (Bureau of Land Management) Land which is open to further walk along the stream and explore. WI-FI Whitewater Cabin is in a stunningly remote location. Until recently, it was impossible to obtain any internet access at all. Thanks to Starlink, we now have fast satellite internet on site. Please note that it is normal for the system to drop out for periods of 30 seconds up to 2 minutes at a time since this is early stage technology. STRONG WINDS The winds in the desert are very strong between February and June which may limit your enjoyment of the outdoor amenities. We do all we can to navigate around the winds but cannot control the impact it may have on your stay. POWER OUTAGES The power is cut off for 8-12 hours at least twice a year by the electrical company in order for maintenance to be done (for instance in preparation for the fire seasons). We inform our guests of outages as soon as we are made aware but cannot control the time or manner in which this may impact your stay. REFUNDS Should any inconveniences such as those listed above or anything else beyond our control affect your stay, we will not provide refunds. Please understand certain things simply come with the windy, rural, desert location. Thank for understanding! PETS There is a one time, non-refundable pet fee of $80 per pet and no more than 2 dogs are allowed. We kindly request that any pets accompanying your reservation be specified under the "Extras" section. Failure to include this information will result in the pet fee being deducted from your deposit. Thank you for your attention to this matter. REQUIREMENTS Upon booking, you will receive a link with a request to sign and agree to our house rules, verify your identity, pay our refundable security deposit, and schedule a phone call with our manager. Please note that these steps are required for all guests. All steps must be complete in full prior to check-in.
