This is an original 1950s cabin with refinished original hardwood floors yet with lots of modern upgrades for a comfortable and cozy getaway. For our summer guests: We have two A/C units, one in the living room and one in the bedroom. I have stayed here in 114 degree heat and it has still been cool and comfortable inside. We just added a water misting system for the front porch and hot tub in the backyard. New for 2023: ice maker for kitchen. For our winter guests: We have infrared & radiant heaters in every room, which keeps the whole cabin very warm and toasty yet without drying the air. Both our minisplit units can also add extra heat if desired. Our hot tub is designed to stay hot all the time so we always have it set for 100 degrees so it's ready to go when you arrive. Our backyard also has a wood firepit & charcoal BBQ We are available through the app or phone any time during your stay and also have local contacts available as well for any on-site emergencies. We're located in Landers, just about 15 minutes north of downtown Joshua Tree, 7 minutes to the Integratron, 10 minutes to La Copine Restaurant, 30 min to JT Park West entrance. 4 adults max per reservation--we allow up to 5 for families with small children. Guest count must be accurate on reservation to see the correct pricing. Easy keyless entry with Nest lock. Exterior gates can be opened with a keypad or you can borrow a remote to keep with your during your stay (MUST be returned when you leave).

BEDROOM: features a very plush Aireloom Palazzo queen bed with premium West Elm/Restoration Hardware linens. Qi wireless phone chargers on nightstands. Corner windows provide natural light, but have blackout shades for late mornings (please note they're not 100% blackout as some light will come in around the edges).

Please use provided mattress protector over sofa if setting it up as a bed. We also provide a child's cot and pack n play crib upon request. Dining table with 4 chairs. 50" Roku smart TV, record player with records to enjoy, board games, Echo Alexa speaker, black & white laser Wifi printer. INFO ABOUT PETS: Dogs must be pre-approved before booking (please provide age, size, breed, etc.) to make sure they're a good fit for our place. There is a $50 pet fee per dog per reservation ($50 fee applies weekly for bookings of 7 days or longer). Please note no dogs on furniture and dogs cannot be left alone in the house at any time. There is doggie daycare for $18/day at Blue Barn Ranch or $30/day at Joshua Tree Pet Resort. We have refinished hardwood floors and ask you ensure your dogs have trimmed nails before they arrive that will not scratch them. Our property is fully fenced, HOWEVER dogs should be supervised outside at all times as small dogs might be able to fit through our fencing, or there could be places where other animals have dug underneath or created holes in the fence--we cannot guarantee your pet will not be able to get out of the fenced area, you are responsible to watch them at all times. There are coyotes and other wild animals in the area so dogs should never be let out alone after dark. Washer/dryer (free) access only for stays 5 or more nights. OUTDOOR AMENITIES: We have a sitting area in back with firepit and charcoal grill with BBQ tools. Please note we do not provide firewood or charcoal--they can be purchased at any local grocery store. If we have some there you are welcome to use it, but we don’t guarantee we will supply it or replenish if it runs out during your stay. If you are coming for a long stay and would like a lot of firewood, our neighbor can give you a quote to deliver. The backyard motion sensor light can be turned on or off inside the house--keeping it off is better for clear nights when you want to see the stars. The front porch has two chairs, misters, as well as some twinkle lights. HOT TUB: No glass around or in hot tub, we have plastic cups provided. Please place hot tub cover on wood surround or rocks below, not on the ground/dirt. Please rinse off in the shower and wipe dirt/sand off your feet before entering hot tub. All 4 buckles on the cover must be secured when not in use—it gets very windy here and the cover could easily blow away. Hot tub can be used any time, but please respect our neighbors and keep noise to a minimum after 10pm. ***Please note our hot tub gets serviced weekly on Fridays*** TV/INTERNET: We have a Roku TV with basic live channels as well as typical smart apps. Our wifi is 25 down/5 up and we typically actually get those speeds on our tri-band mesh network with coverage both inside and outside the house. I have been able to watch streaming TV plus use my laptop to work at the same time without any issues. However please note when it gets especially windy, the internet can go in and out. We have added a laser printer which you can use if connect to WiFi, prints black & white only. We will do our best to supply printer paper but cannot guarantee we will have it. Please be aware we are in the actual desert! We have lots of nature around us and you will see some bugs and critters during your stay. We recommend keeping doors closed at all times whenever possible to prevent bugs from getting in. During the summer there are lots of flies--if you leave doors open they will get inside. We have eco-friendly bug spray provided. There are animals and sharp desert plants on the property which could be dangerous to pets, children, or even adults. Guests exploring the property or letting their children/pets wander around the property do so at their own risk. If you drive off of the gravel areas of the driveway, you could get stuck in the sand, especially if your car does not have 4-wheel drive. We recommend to only drive and park on the areas with the gray rocks. As we are in an area where water is an especially precious resource, please be mindful of running the dishwasher or washing machine only when it's full, and if possible at night when the energy costs are lower. No electric car charging--if you charge your car or use any energy heavy equipment you will be charged an additional $50/day, or for actual cost of the extra usage above our average daily use, whichever is higher. This is a high fire hazard area, use of the firepit or smoking outside must be done with extreme care. Any fires in the firepit and cigarette butts must be fully extinguished and cannot be left unattended. Sometimes during high winds the county prohibits fires. It can get quite windy is this area, so we do not recommend leaving anything outside that could blow away or get knocked over. For this reason no inside furniture or linens can go outside at any time. Outdoor blankets must be taken with you when you go back inside. When it's especially windy power and/or internet can go in and out. Some carriers get service at our house, but the most reliable method is to turn your phone into airplane mode and connect to the wifi. In the Summer: A/C should be turned off or left at 78 when leaving the house for extended periods of time. Doors and windows should always be closed when A/C or heating is on. In the Winter: Heating should be turned off or left at 65 when leaving the house for extended periods of time. Doors and windows should always be closed when A/C or heating is on. We provide a remote for the gates--it must be returned at the end of the stay or there will be $100 fee charged.We have just one cabin on the property. You have the entire place, 2.5 acres to yourself. All the site description is about this cabin and property.
