Property description

Welcome to the Enchanting Encanto Cabin!

The renovated Encanto Cabin is a vintage Jackrabbit Homestead in a spectacular and dazzling desert setting. It is perfect for a romantic weekend or a recuperative and peaceful escape from the clamor of the asphalt jungle. NEW: The cabin now has unlimited internet via Mojave Wifi. You can choose to disconnect, but you don't have to…

Located just 14 miles from the Joshua Tree National Park North Entrance in 29 Palms, this charming homestead cabin is on 5 acres in a magical desert setting. The interior is very comfortable 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 features a comfortable Queen Bed, a large sliding door closet, extra blankets and pillows, a new shower stall, 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 outer gated fence, and there is also an interior fenced area that is perfect for your Canine Companions. Also on this 5-acre parcel is a fire pit for your night time 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 at the enchanting Encanto Cabin is soooo good many of our guests extend their stay. We bet you won't want to leave either...

If the cabin is available on the dates that you want, you can go ahead and instantly book it online, even if you are booking with well-behaved pet friends.

Lucy’s Trailer:

We've added Lucy's Trailer to the Encanto Cabin property. This pristine vintage trailer once served as Lucille Ball's dressing room at the RKO Studio in North Hollywood. This trailer sleeps 2 to 4 people. It is super comfortable, with a bathroom and fully equipped kitchenette. The back bedroom has two twin beds; there is a day bed in the middle room area and a large couch in the living room. If you would like to rent this trailer, it is an additional $75 a night. We do not rent the cabin out to separate parties; it is only available to the guests that are staying at the Encanto Cabin. Please let us know if you would like to rent this additional space.

Cheers!

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2013

About: My name is Jeffrey Perry and I am the manager of the Encanto Cabin and the recently renovated Wonderama Ranch (2015). 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, 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 Wonder Valley, CA, USA:
The owner of DesertLand loves Wonder Valley. This part of the high desert is so pristine and the Encanto Cabin is arguably in the most visually spectacular section of Wonder Valley as it is intimate, up close and personal to the Wonder Valley Mountain range. Sunsets here are unspeakably beautiful.

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