A spacious 1,000 square foot great room where you can solve the worlds problems or cook a phenomenal meal. High beamed ceilings, comfy couches in front of an enormous stone fireplace, or cozy nooks to get away from it all with your favorite book. All of these things are possible here and much, much more. If you are like many who have stayed here, you will return year after year! Relaxing? Yes, but don't get so relaxed that you miss hiking the 60,000 acre wilderness right out the door. Black Lava Butte towers over PCL. Recently named ' Ayte'ivyat' by local tribes, it was once home to the Serrano Indian tribe. A place where Chiefs and Shamans reportedly performed ceremonial rituals and dances on the peak. It is sacred ground. When you see it, you'll dance too! Climb it before breakfast and contemplate all that is good in your life. It and the adjacent wilderness are resplendent with glyphs and rock formations that rival Joshua Tree Park. But rest assured, you must go there too. So much to do, so little time. Why not stay a week?
Our brilliant night skies makes it feel like the Milky Way is a fingertip away.

As the first VRBO in Pipes Canyon, and after ten years of inviting guests into our home, we've learned quite a bit about what makes you happy!

Not to mention, a peace and tranquility found no where else. We are just an eight minute drive down the road from famed Pappy and Harriets. Enjoy antiquing and hiking by day and music at night. Why not break away from city life for a few days of hiking in your shorts during the day and toasting yourselves in front of a roaring fire at night, after a soothing mineral Jacuzzi.
Pipes Canyon Lodge was once referred to as 'The Ponderosa' by locals or 'The Big House' Why? Maybe it was the 12 foot high vaulted, beamed ceilings, or maybe it was the massive stone fireplace in the living room. It is rumored that Pappy himself left his mark on this grand old house. Hmm. A lot has changed since those days. The house can still seat all of its' occupants at a sweeping dining room table with elbow room to spare, but now the meals are cooked in a chef's dream of a kitchen fully equipped with every tool you will need and the spices to make all of your signature dishes. Thermador five burner cooktop, KitchenAid double ovens, dishwasher, refrigerator. Stocked pantry with bar refrigerator. Plenty of room for a handful of chefs to cook an impressive holiday dinner while others make those tangy Mojitos for sunset on the 60 foot veranda. Pipes Canyon Lodge is cozy and intimate enough to be enjoyed by a handful but spacious enough for everyone to sit around the roaring fire and tell ghost stories. There are lots of private venues indoors and out.
A total of three fireplaces (wood provided) and a central heating system ensure that you will be toasty during your stay. One in the dining room that adds to the ambiance of dinners that stretch into the wee hours, and one in the Jacuzzi room adding to the steam you create. The Jacuzzi is centered in it's own 500 foot square room. The spa room doubles as a dorm room and looks out at beautiful Black Lava Butte, just 250 feet away.
With forty mile unobstructed views all around, sunsets are not to be missed. Whether from our 60 foot covered veranda or under our shaded pergola. What the heck, try both. Our beautiful boulder monument is there to climb or just ponder. If staying close to home is your scene, just count boulders in the front and backyard.
We are now equipped for retreats. We can accommodate up to fourteen participants comfortably in the house, and we have a separate instructor/s quarters. New this season? Our completely tricked out 1953 Spartan Royal Mansion Trailer. 300 square feet of luxury - 1950's style! Full kitchen! Indoor and outdoor showers. Sleeps two/three or four if you're 'close'! Separate rental fee. Our beautiful 20 x 20 pergola perfect for medicine circles or yoga mats or dining alfresco! Come on, you deserve it! Sipping sunset cocktails on your own boulder monument is pure heaven. What are you waiting for? Perched on top of Pipes Canyon with views of San Jacinto, Sleeping Indian (Sawtoothe) and Big Bear.
Pappy & Harriets just down the road!!!!
