About Brian Marvin & Laura Morang-Worsfold

We built this home in 2005. We always felt like we were in a western movie because of the Joshua Trees and rock formations. The local color of Pioneertown was loads of fun. Pioneertown is a cowboy town created as a movie set where Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, and others filmed.

Brian Marvin & Laura Morang-Worsfold purchased this house in 2005

Why Brian Marvin & Laura Morang-Worsfold chose Pioneertown

A quick commute from Los Angeles, we were able to pop up to our desert home three and four times a week. Also close to Palm Springs 45 minuets. Miles of trails for hiking and horseback riding.

What makes this house unique

Endless unique and beautiful vistas, dark sky's for star gazing, quiet, solitude and peaceful.

Incredible views

  • 5 of 5

This is a very comfortable and homey dwelling. The views of Pipes Canyon are spectacular! We would most certainly return for another stay.

Wonderful place for one or two families

  • 5 of 5

The house has beautiful views, is well appointed and the property is amazing for kids to explore. The boulders behind the house are perfect for climbing so you don't really have to leave and get a great High Desert experience!

great property, house, and location

  • 5 of 5

Spent a weekend in the desert with great friends to hike in Joshua tree. The house was perfectly accommodating and had everything we needed. The location was secluded but also close enough to Pioneertown. Su was very helpful and always available when i had a question. Weill absolutely return again. Thank you!

Simply Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time staying in Pioneertown. The house was perfect and had everything we needed. Make sure you get up for at least one sunrise!! It was by far the highlight of our trip.

Beautiful stay in Pioneer Town

  • 5 of 5

My siblings and I rented this spot for the weekend of my sister's funeral in Joshua Tree. It was the perfect spot - beautiful, serene. The sunsets are crazy. Nearby Pappy and Harriet's is a great place for a drink and a show - we happemed to catch Gang of Four out there.

Su was friendly and easy to deal with.

Great spot in the desert

  • 5 of 5

If you're in Pioneertown, this is a great little house. Had all the stuff we needed and nice porches to take in the desert breeze. Thanks for a great stay.
