Comfortable cabin on secure property with 360 degree expansive views of beautiful desert landscapes. A perfect spot to unplug from city life, stage your desert activities & enjoy starry nights.
THE SPACE: Comfortable homestead cabin that's recently been remodeled. Includes most of the conveniences of home such as water & power utilities, air conditioning, ceiling fans in living room & bedrooms, electric stove top, electric convection oven, microwave oven, toaster oven, coffee maker, coffee press, and full sized refrigerator. Kitchen has full compliment of dishes, glasses, pots, pans, silverware and cooking utensils. Each room has its own electric wall heater and there's a large brick fireplace in the living room. Cabin has a full bathroom with conventional toilet, vanity, sink, tub and shower.
The outside rear of the cabin has a fire pit for relaxing around with family and friends, roasting marshmallows, making smores or cooking meals. For your convenience, a wheelbarrow load of firewood to burn in the fire pit will be provided free of charge. Please note the fire pit CAN'T be used during windy conditions. In addition, the back yard has a horseshoe pit to test your ability.
This is a fantastic location to unplug from "the matrix", decompress, and experience the best of what the high desert has to offer. It's an extremely peaceful and quiet area and is ideal for bringing family, friends and loved ones to deepen connections through fellowship without having the numerous daily distractions of our normal busy lives.
You can certainly find other places to book that will be located closer to other tourists, the National Park and Pappy & Harriott's; however, my property is ideal for those looking for a true get-away to experience the magnificence of the SoCal high desert.
I am flexible on how the property is used provided it remains in the same condition as when you arrive. So please feel free to ask about any special arrangements you require. Whether it is a party, wedding, reunion, photo or film shoot, retreat, etc......I would love to accommodate your needs.
GUEST ACCESS: Guests will have full run of the entire cabin, and the cabin will be stocked with all the basic kitchen, bedroom and bathroom supplies you would find in an extended-stay hotel except for hair dryer or clothes iron.
There are no TV's in the cabin and internet service is not provided (after all, it is a getaway cabin!). If you do require a TV or some other electronic device, then please request in advance of booking and I will do my best to accommodate.
I use Verizon Wireless for my own mobile phone service and get reliable phone, data and WiFi access on the property and the surrounding areas. Those with other carriers should expect poor access based on my experience. I personally will use a tablet or laptop with my Verizon Hotspot for playing music or watching HD movies on Netflix from time to time. This works well for me, and I advise those with desires for these types of entertainment to bring your own electronics, content subscriptions, and data plan.
You will find several legacy games and puzzles in a kitchen cabinet below the stove top. Games include Uno, Yahtzee, Scrabble, Dominoes and playing cards.
There is a metal grate for grilling meals outside over the fire pit and there is also a charcoal BBQ on site. If you think you'll need to use the BBQ, please let me know in advance so I can have it available for you (charcoal is not included).
A full listing of all of the cabin's stocked supplies is available upon request.
INTERACTIONS WITH GUESTS: I am accessible as needed during your stay and will be there to welcome you in and check you out. Please feel free to share your interests with me prior to your arrival as I can also help provide scenic off-road & trail tours, off-road ATV tours, mining sites and prospecting tours, local cultural site tours, and more. My family and I are long time residents of the area and would love to assist with arranging any high desert activity or interactive tour you would like. So reach out to me anytime to formulate a unique adventure that best suits you. It is my sincere desire that you enjoy and discover the best Mojave Desert experience possible.
THE NEIGHBORHOOD: This is a perfect getaway for those looking for peace, quiet, beauty, wildlife and amazing night skies. The extremely low levels of light pollution in this area provides excellent star gazing opportunities nightly and is ideal for meteor showers. Sleeping outside under the stars is one of my favorite things to do while I'm at the property and there are cots available for outdoor sleeping (please request prior to your arrival date).
The property is located right next to hundreds of miles of BLM land open to the public in the Johnson Valley, so it's an excellent location for adventurers and off-roaders. In fact, there is no need to load up all your off-road vehicles and gear to head to the designated Off Highway Vehicle (OHV) areas because you can ride directly from my property to access the vast public lands only about one mile away.
