Joshua Tree house description

Leave your troubles behind and bask in the beauty of nature. The National Park begins a short walk up the road. Enjoy stunning hiking trails into a desirable, but little known area of (south) Joshua Tree.

Perfect as a romantic couples getaway or for a group. By evening cozy up to a crackling fire. Cook your meals in the well-equipped kitchen and snuggle into soft covers by night. There are ample fresh linens for a party of six. In the morning sip fresh brewed coffee while staring into expansive vistas in every direction. The large picture windows overlook far away mountains and desert that can also be enjoyed from outdoor tables and chairs. This cozy two bedroom one bath house is all newly refurbished. Outdoor area includes barbecue.

Located near Harrison House, a straw bale artist retreat that is, at times, also available.

The 'locals' entrance 3/4 mile up the street to Joshua Tree National Park features some of the most beautiful hiking in the national park and is just a walk up the street. Desert View House is also located near the Harrison House Artist Residency and serves to house the artist overflow and guests who are visiting.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Location Location Location! Desert View House is convenient to the town of Joshua Tree, in between the two major entrances into the park and easy to access to the 'village of Joshua Tree' and the 29 Palms area where there are beautiful murals and restaurants to enjoy. In addition to hiking there is horse back riding, climbing and live musical performances nearby.
