Joshua Tree cabin description

Walk directly into Joshua Tree National Park from this “tiny modernist jewel” (Western Interiors Magazine), situated among iconic granite boulders on five untouched acres, right on the border of the Park.

The Modernist Cabin provides unmatched access to the Park in a truly private setting, but is just four miles from the village of Joshua Tree. Designed by Ron Radziner of Marmol Radziner and Associates, this re-imagined homestead cabin is the perfect base camp for exploring the Park, star gazing, catching the spring wildflower bloom, attending the JT Music Festival, rock climbing, or sampling the local arts and music scene.

Take a soak outside in the luxe cowboy tub or relax on the patio with a view as stunning as anything in the Park. On Saturday's, visit Joshua Tree’s Certified Farmer’s Market and prepare gourmet meals in the fully-appointed kitchen, or attend a yoga class in town -- free passes to Instant Karma Yoga in Joshua Tree are provided with every booking, and private yoga classes can be arranged.

Featured in Western Interiors Magazine (“a shack for the twenty-first century”), on the cover of the LA Times Home Section, and in Haven: Cozy Hideaways and Dream Retreats (“a modern house that takes design cues from the land itself”), this is THE place for the discerning traveler in search of the ultimate Joshua Tree experience.

The Modernist Cabin is small (about 400 square feet), so bookings are limited to singles and couples without children or pets. Please take a look at the pictures to decide whether it meets your needs. For those booking in colder months, the shower is partially outside, so it can be a bit brisk. But the tankless water heater provides abundant hot water and most of our guests love it year round. We hope to see you soon!
