Overview

About the property

Cabin, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-3)

Green Acres Ranch is more than a cozy place to stay...it is a work of art surprising its happy guests with beauty and creativity.

The ranch has two separate cabins (rented individually or together - see our other VRBO listing #506635) and is on acres of clean and sparse Mojave Desert land. Several lounging areas, hammocks, and fire pits help you soak up the sun, the stars, a good book or a glass of wine (It's rumored that a bottle has greeted a guest or two).

For those who love wildlife, our mature trees and other plant life attract a host of twittering birds and scurrying critters: quail, doves, friendly bats, and roadrunners to name a few. Ravens often nest in the large Tamarisk trees at the front gate, raising new hatchlings each year.

We're located less than a mile away from the boundary of Joshua Tree National Park, and our convenient location near the 62 Highway provides easy access to all nearby locations without sacrificing a sense of peaceful seclusion. Daily excursions may include Joshua Tree National Park (West entrance less than ten minutes away), East Mojave Scenic National Area, Big Morongo Wildlife Preserve, Palm Springs, the Coachella Valley, Big Bear Mountain, Twentynine Palms, Pioneer Town, or Giant Rock.

Lovely

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful place, perfectly situated close to the park, yet secluded and very private - so much so that we never saw the family members who were coincidentally staying in the other cabin on the property! Everything is well appointed, with a comfortable bed, nice linens, lounge areas for reading and napping, and a cozy wood burning stove. We’ll be back as soon as we can!

The PERFECT getaway for 2! Secluded, stylish, well appointed, and just wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This was my third time staying in the Cactus Flower, and each time is better than the last. Lots of love and focus has clearly been poured into making this place so special. The fire pit outside is the heart of this place, as you look up, you can see STARS! Bright stars, a bright moon, and even a planet or two! The kitchen is great for making a large, well planned meal, or just mowing down a PB&J. The bedroom/living room has a wood stove that is just so damn charming and warms the place up perfectly.

You can cut yourself off from social media, work, smart phone nonsense, and just focus on your surroundings (your backyard is the desert and mountains!!!), listen to the coyotes while sitting outside with your loved ones, hone your fire building skills...but if you must, there is WiFi.

There are plenty of restaurants, markets, conveniences within a few miles drive. Morongo Casino & an AMAZING Outlet mall are not too far, either....but when you can just seriously relax at a tiny slice of heaven that is Green Acres/Panoramic Heights, why leave at all?

Beautiful place to escape and unwind.

  • 5 of 5

Truly enjoyed my stay. Wanted a nice, open, quiet place to just unwind for the weekend. My girlfriend and I found that at this desert cabin. The grill and fire pit were definitely enjoyed but just the quietness and the clear night skies riddled with stars is what made our stay truly worth it. Above all, Albert was very easy to contact for anything we needed and was extremely helpful.

Cute, clean, comfy

  • 5 of 5

Easy access to Joshua Tree National Park, and also a few great restaurants (Crossroads Cafe; Natural Sisters), which made for a great weekend! one note: you can slightly hear the highway from the house. Not a big deal, just a note if you are looking for a place with the ABSOLUTE quiet of the desert.

Even better than the pictures! Adorable house and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect house for a couple and our border collie also quite enjoyed the outdoor space! The house is very comfortable and has everything you could possible need - fully equipped kitchen, clean linens and even Mexican blankets to keep you warm outside on those chilly nights! Loved the decor and perfect location for day hikes in Joshua Tree. Would definitely come back again!

About Sandra Lee

We are Albert and Sandra, artists from the Los Angeles area.

Sandra Lee purchased this cabin in 2001

Why Sandra Lee chose Panorama Heights

Joshua Tree is the best getaway from the city, if you want big open skies and uncrowded spaces! Green Acres Ranch has a relaxed and unpretentious feeling that guests instantly respond to.

What makes this cabin unique

What our guests really enjoy about the property is that it provides great comfort, yet has the slight feel of 'roughing it'. We are private, and yet easily accessible to Highway 62.
