Homestead cabin with rustic exterior, spectacular views and cozy uniqueness inside! A place to enjoy the wonderment of Joshua Tree.
This is how I "try" to describe the cabin.
The cabin is located on a hillside surrounded by open desert with views of Joshua Tree National Park. Perfect for one to four adults or a small family. Great location for stargazing, enjoying wildlife listening to birds sing and coyotes howl. Enjoy your evenings around an outdoor fire.
The cabins decor is desert Bohemian. The cabin has two bedroom with queen size beds. The kitchen has a full sized refrigerator and stove, a spice rack with everything needed for cooking. Our dinning room table has seating for six. The inside space is functional and uniquely cozy.
Our "hot tub" is an antique clawfoot bathtub previously owned by 'Hollywood Royalty' it is outback and dreamy.
Lost Coyote Cabin is very private, a unique place for adventurous people to experience the desert culture and wonderment of Joshua Tree.
The cabin is nestled in the hills where you can roam, hike and explore without having to go anywhere.
“Passage of the Small Tract Act has opened vast areas of land, not for profit or exploitation, but for folks who like to build with their own hands, and who are thrilled by the challenge of creating a home of their own…These homesteads are for people who delight in watching the moon rise over purpled hills, for those who would call the stars by name, and who love the peace that is found only in remote places.”
DESERT MAGAZINE 1954
Lost Coyote Cabin is a "Jackrabbit Homestead Cabin" and its history is part of the Small-Tract Homestead Act of 1938. This allowed people to homestead on 5 arce's of land provided they improved the land with a home or cabin. Most of the desert cabins were built by weekenders like us seeking to escape city life. We purchased this cabin from the original owner, it had been abandoned for many years. This was before Home Depot open and the only hardware store in town was closed on Sundays. A VW Bus was our only vehicle and it double has our work truck. We didn't have extra money to buy things and have them delivered. Out of necessity we embraced the culture of reusing and repurposing things found at local swap meets, garage sales and thrift stores. What was once work rebuilding the cabin became passion! Lost Coyote Cabin is a testament to the history and culture of owning a Jackrabbit Homestead Cabin.
