Boulder House Dream Vacay
"Our second time staying at this amazing place! The property is a dream! Love all the art that infuses this place! Everywhere you look, there is some treasure, some visual delight, something beautiful, colorful, exotic, fun, humorous, textural!!! I continued to see new things that I had missed before!
Comfortable, cozy and a great place to share with a group!
Thank you, and looking forward to making this an annual event!"

"We came from Connecticut to explore Death Valley and Joshua Tree. LOVED JT. Such an amazing spot in the world.
It was great to stay so close to the park. This cozy cottage is just as described, with a comfortable and relaxed ambiance. Big patio for sitting outside and watching the sun rise or set. We enjoyed the interesting yard--and the yard of the Harrison House Art & Music Center across the street. (We read up on Lou Harrison once we figured out the connection--which made the whole place feel more intimate and interesting.)
Couple of downsides: The refrigerator was not cold; we froze bottles of water and put them in the fridge. We could have called the caretaker, but didn't want to take the time and left a note instead. Had to search around for the washer/dryer (in garage). And the place could benefit from a Welcome book, as someone else stated.
But overall, a wonderful, memorable stay. We stayed 3 nights and could easily have stayed longer."

"The place is a dream for everybody not wanting five star luxury but a unique getaway in a great location. The authentic vintage interior as well as the great collection of old cars, trailers and neon lights outside (among other collectibles) makes you feel very special when spending time there. The views and landscape are stunning. And sitting in the back of the house barbecueing can only be topped by dipping into the old metal tub with a good bottle of beer...
From a more practical perspective, the house is just minutes away from the Joshua Tree National Park entrance. And should anybody like to horse ride - the friendly neighbors did show up by horse one evening and offered tours by horse. If we did this again, we would definitely spend more time there (we just had two days left this time).
Oh, and the kids loved sleeping in the vintage trailer. And all the critters that keep coming to the house in search of food."

"We had a very comfortable Joshua Tree getaway at Turtle Crossing Ranch Guest House. It was very clean, as advertised, and easy because the house is so well equipped and conveniently located! We made great use of the kitchen (gas range!) to make home-cooked meals. The setting was peaceful and private--just far enough away and just close enough to easily get into town and the park. It was a very memorable stay!"
