About Jeffrey Perry
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.
Jeffrey Perry purchased this Cabin in 2013
Why Jeffrey Perry chose Wonder Valley
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.
What makes this Cabin unique
The quiet hush of the desert. The brilliant sky. An opportunity to unplug and be human.

Desert Beach House?
The Encanto is more like a beach house in the south of Maui than a cabin in the desert. Of course its the big, raw, wide-open desert and so far from neighbors it has tons of privacy and peacefulness. But the house itself was like a beach house, so simple and down to earth functional, it was just perfect! The rental aspect was easy, with instant communication from the owner/manager with all the info you need, instructions, directions, it could not be more simple. The lock box at the gate is awesome so you can come and go as you want, without needing to disturb anyone. This is a perfect place to explore JTNP from. We did not use/access the Lucille Ball trailer on the property, but it was pretty cool having it there. The artistic taste and overall set-up was great. The rusty items lining the driveway was pure art! We hope to come again!
Comfy, quiet. Thank you so much for providing coals for the grill and wood for the fire pit. I will definitely be back.
Great getaway in 29 Palms
The studio is very nicely appointed and has all basics you'd need for a stay. The fenced areas and yards are well maintained and perfect if you have a dog. We loved the views, stargazing, and sunrises. The location is remote. It's a 15 min drive to the park and 30 mins to a few restaurants in JT. So quiet. We really enjoyed our stay.
Very quiet and comfortable.
We enjoy the peace, quiet and solitude enjoyed our adventure
Wonderful airy and well lit space. A great place to relax and enjoy the quiet during the day.
The solitude was very relaxing. It was nearly always very quiet. A great place to watch the heavens at night. So many stars! You can see we are part of the Milky Way. The pit fire was where we spent our evenings and the large porch we used to relax after a day of clambering over rocks in Joshua Tree. I’d highly recommend this place.
We like to go out and get lost in the Mojave exploring the old abandoned homesteads that still dot the high desert landscape.
