Joshua Tree cabin description

Welcome to the Enchanting Encanto Cabin!

Located just 14 miles from the Joshua Tree National Park North Entrance in 29 Palms, this newly renovated homestead cabin is on 5 acres in a magical desert setting. The interior is comfortably outfitted with mid-century furnishings that accent the original 1950’s architecture without being too precious. We have adorned the walls with some interesting local “found” art treasures that we unearthed from in and around the 29 Palms area.

The cabin is a spacious single room with a designated kitchen area and bath. It is perfect for a romantic weekend for two or the solo traveler looking for sweet and quiet solitude.

The cabin features a comfortable Queen Bed, a large sliding door closet, extra blankets and pillows, a new shower stall, WIFI for your laptop, a TV enhanced with a satellite dish connection and a DVD player, and a fully equipped kitchenette with microwave, coffee maker, pots, pans, dishware and utensils.

Outside there is an extra large patio area with a table and chairs and chaise lounges. The cabin is enclosed from the street by an exterior gated fence and there is also an interior fence area that is perfect for approved Canine Companions. Also on this 5 acre parcel is a fire pit for your nighttime storytelling - stargazing pleasure.

The desert vista will put on quite a show at Golden Hour and about that time you might want to pour a glass of wine and put some shrimp on the small hibachi-like grill. Life is good.

Cheers!

          We like to go out and get lost in the Mojave exploring the old abandoned homesteads that still dot the high desert landscape.

           

          Manager info

          Year Purchased: 2013

          About: My name is Jeffrey Perry and I am the manager of the Encanto Cabin. I've always been a big fan of the high desert and have been coming out here since the 70's. I have remodeled many popular vacation cabins – notably the Sapphire Ranch and Cabin 51. In early 2013, I was approached by Dana Desselle, another big fan of the high desert and the owner of DesertLand.com, to remodel the Encanto Cabin. The old homestead cabin was in sad shape, just a falling down uninhabitable heap really, but the potential of the setting was obvious. The renovation road was winding as remodels tend to be, but we are quite proud of the resulting cabin and everyone who sees it concurs – it is simple and comfortable and the setting is simply stunning.

          Why Joshua Tree:
          The owner of DesertLand.com loves Wonder Valley. This part of the high desert is so pristine and the setting in Godwin Heights where the Encanto Cabin is located has arguably one of the most glorious desert vistas to be found on the 29 Palms side of Joshua Tree.

          The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
          The quiet hush of the desert. The brilliant sky. An opportunity to unplug and be human.
