Bedrooms 2
Space 1,008 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

2 bed, 2 bath with 360 degree mountain views

Newly constructed and purpose built, this rental ticks all the boxes. Open concept living/dining/kitchen with views of iconic Black Lava Butte, now part of the Sand to Snow National Monument. In fact, because we share a property line with the Monument, just step out of the gate and you are right there and you can hike thousands of acres of unspoiled desert.

Both bedrooms open onto an upper patio with views of Mount San Jacinto and the Sawtooth Mountains. Full size sofa bed in living room sleeps an additional two people. Fun bunkhouse with full size futon couch for warm nights. Large lower patio for barbeques, parties and other events. Luxurious outdoor shower and hot tub with mountain views. There's a fire pit for sitting and stargazing. Watch the wildlife that visits the pond. Maybe you'll even meet our local coyote!

We were pleasantly surprised on arrival. We've been doing vacation rentals for years...since our grown children we "Littles". Always we have to come prepared. We have a family binder my mother-in-law created on the places we've stayed, the common issues to expect, a list of items to take depending on menu plans, what to avoid, what extra cleaning supplies to take, etc.

On arrival, depending on first glance, we've been known to run all the dishes back through the dishwasher, pull the bedding and launder before use, etc.

None of that was an issue here. The size was more than adequate for our needs. It was clean. We had nearly every kind of dish we needed. I would have liked a larger roaster. I brought my smaller one concerned about size of oven. It plenty big for a large roaster.

But beauty and serenity was above and beyond. We couldn't have ask for more. We were there for our daughter's wedding at The Ruin Venue. The home was close to the venue making it easy to get to and from, especially when you're making multiple trips with deliveries. Our kids there for the wedding (not the bride) found time for hiking and other adventures my husband and I didn't get to enjoy. Our son made the most of the bunkhouse and outdoor shower. He loves being quiet and having downtime by himself. It was perfect.

We are hoping for a do over trip where we can focus on us and simply enjoy the quiet beauty that surrounds the Black Lava Lodge. Get in a few hikes and basically just relax.

Thank you for sharing your home!

Beautiful inside and out!

  • 5 of 5

This property was a fantastic spot, beautiful surroundings and well thought out. House and outbuildings melded in to the surroundings and we enjoyed every bit of it.

Thanks for accommodating our arrival and departure and the guided route to the house. We hope to come back soon!

My husband and I really loved visiting Yucca Valley. The house has everything you need and more. Grocery stores and gas stations are only a 15 minute drive but this place feels remote and private. Michelle and Sean are wonderful hosts, leaving a bottle of wine and some doggy treats for our furry family member. We lounged around reading by the fireplace, drawing the beautiful landscape around us, and hiking close by. This is a place to disconnect and be present with the landscape and loved ones. We hope to be back soon! You won't regret your stay.

Cutest home, real desert feel

  • 5 of 5

Amazing home in the desert is the perfect getaway. Well designed and very clean...details included toiletries and a bottle of wine. Hot tub was fantastic and home is heated well by propane fireplace. 2 bedrooms are on either side of the home making for a private retreat for two couples or a family. Cannot wait to return.

Owner's Response: We loved hosting you! Elsie gave me the most beautiful smile when I delivered the additional drinking water. Your mom left a book in her room. Do you want me to mail it?

Beautiful Oasis in Pioneertown

  • 5 of 5

If your looking for a house with a hot tub, hiking trail right out your front door, close to Pappy and Harriet's, great views, beautiful outdoor space and dogs allowed, look no further. This house is spectacular and we even had a visit from a Bobcat. We will be back and thank you Michelle for everything.
