Joshua Tree Rock House
Unique place. Peaceful. Had so much fun making movies with all the unique antiquities there. Plenty of room and had everything we needed for cooking dinner. Free firewood which was great for the firepit and potbelly heater. Night sky with millions of stars and milky way--awesome! Brought our toy hauler, dirt bikes, quad, and side-by-side. Rode every day. Felt so free there. We try to go somewhere new every Thanksgiving from luxury to roughing it so they kids can learn and see different things. This place was history with modern art. Not glamping, not camping, not luxury however there is truth there. One of the most unique places we've stayed and lots of teaching experiences for the kids.

Joshua Tree Mountain House
We had a wonderful stay at the Mountain House cabin. Excellent location with a view out across the desert, well-stocked kitchen, and giant alien chairs...what more could one want?

Joshua Tree Mountain House
Gorgeous and serene spot
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!

Joshua Tree Ranch House
Great location w/ Western backdrop
The Western town on the property was a ton of fun for our kids. It's got a saloon with incredible views, as well as a old-West "dentist" and jail. The kids played for hours. Joshua Tree is nearby. Can set up tents right in the backyard, or just enjoy the property and firepit. Beautiful views and close to Joshua Tree.

Joshua Tree Ranch House
A Wonderful Western Weekend
An absolute blast - booked to celebrate my birthday and it was the perfect setting. Tons of space for tents and adventuring. The property is bigger than we imagined. Cozy beds in big rooms and the bunk house was a plus. We want to come back asap!!
