Rustic Modern Joshua Tree Desert Cabin
Our desert cabin is where the asphalt meets the dirt road, both literally and in design. Its rustic modern decor stands out with exposed beams, barn doors, farmhouse sink and industrial shelving. On two acres of desert landscape, the cabin is tucked at the foot of a small mountain surrounded by boulders.

An artistic landmark high atop a private rock-encrusted mount more than 300 feet above the surrounding area, on 20+ private acres nestled against a wildlife preserve and Joshua Tree National Park. Spectacular 360 degree views and night sky.
This incomparable property is unlike any other with its monolithic rock formations, spectacularly diverse native plant life, and abundance of native wildlife. One of the only locations with a fully paved drive. To the North you overlook the town of Joshua Tree, to the South undeveloped spectacular boulder and desert land with a Joshua Tree forest and no view of civilization, to the West and East, boulder mountains with unprecedented amounts of plant life. Intimately experience this one-of-a-kind refuge and the natural wonders that have made Joshua Tree world famous.
THE HOME—Built in the late 1960s and situated at the end of a near quarter-mile private paved driveway, the home’s mid-century modern architecture soars above the Joshua Tree desert horizon with large windows and breathtaking views from every room. Made of solid block adorned with native natural stone, the retro/vintage architecture is perfectly complimented by serving dually as a private art gallery that features original artworks from celebrated artisans—including original large outdoor sculptures of a Bighorn Sheep and Roadrunner placed among the rocks, created by the home's original builder, esteemed artist sculptor Howard Pierce. The home features a grand piano in the drawing room and a vaulted sunroom overlooking Downtown Joshua Tree and its renowned desert night skies. Multiple covered and uncovered patios are located throughout the estate, including an outdoor spa with awe-inspiring mountain views, and a propane grill. It also features one small 3/4 and one full bath that remain in their original vintage form, and three bedrooms -- each with a queen bed and with an additional futon in the master bedroom. The kitchen carries the original vintage vibe of the home, as do the unique and post modern furnishings.
