Rancho Rincon

Situated in the Joshua Tree Highlands just minutes from Joshua Tree National Park, Rancho Rincon encompasses the very essence of desert tranquility. Surrounded by natural desert landscape, you'll feel as if you've been transported back 100 years when settlers first discovered the magic and mystique of the west.

The Rancho is a true getaway retreat that offers a little bit of everything for everyone. Whether reading a good book or trying to write that great American novel, rock climbing, hiking or taking in the sights of the beautiful Morongo Basin, this home will make your desert experience one of amazing memories.

The Rancho has two lovely and light-filled bedrooms, a wonderful country bathroom, and a large open living room - study - dining area with a fireplace.A bunk area is available for overflow sleeping accommodations for up to three additional people.

The gourmet kitchen is complete with everything you need to make as elegant a meal as your heart desires. French doors open onto one of two delightful patio areas that have fabulous views of the star-filled sky, cacti, desert wildlife and the mountains of this high-desert wonderland. On the back patio there is a large barbecue grill for outdoor cooking.

Two ‘cowboy hot tubs’ are located just a stone’s throw from the back patio, where, on a moonlit desert night, you might find yourself soaking beside a crackling campfire. The tubs, outdoor shower, flush toilet and fire ring are all stashed behind a wooden corral that provides total privacy without obstructing any of the sweeping view.

Laundry facilities available for longer term guests.

All linens and necessaries are provided.

There is central air/heat, TV and DVD player. Your very well-behaved dog will be considered as well

Quail Haven

Quail Haven’s open floor plan offers a bright, family-friendly space perfect for entertaining. Plush carpeting, hand-sculpted iron furnishings and tasteful art décor create a sophisticated-yet-comfortable atmosphere from which to enjoy this unique, rock-strewn landscape. The light-filled family room has a new sleeper sofa, large flat-screen TV/DVD player, and shelves of books and games for the whole family; a half wall separates it from the formal living room, where you’ll find a stone fireplace next to a wall-of-glass slider that leads out to the deck. The dining room and kitchen form another large open space with seating for eight.

This bright and colorful desert hideaway has one bedroom with a queen-sized bed and one bathroom. There is also the sofa bed in the family room and other sleeping arrangements possible (sleep upon magnetic pads and find relief for aches and pains!).

Sit outside on the spacious deck with luxury furnishings or enjoy the view from out front among the many huge terracotta pots. Cook on the BBQ or light a fire in the hand-sculpted iron fire ring. Explore the unique collection of antique farm implements, and, of course, the evening skies are breathtaking!

Quail Haven welcomes your well-behaved four-legged family members as well. Prior permission is required along with a pet deposit.

All linens are provided. Access to a washing machine and dryer.

This is a spectacular, private locale for a group of singles or a family gathering (kids are fine, too!).

B’iltmore Bunkhouse

Located in the Joshua Tree Highlands just minutes from the west entrance to Joshua Tree National Park, the B’iltmore (when homesteaders needed more room they “built more”) Bunkhouse has panoramic views of the mountains and tilted plains that define this desert paradise.


While it can sleep five, it is a lovely retreat for an individual or couple as well. Artfully painted and decorated to emphasize the light and colors of the desert, downstairs has a bedroom with a queen-sized bed, bathroom with tile shower, a convenience kitchen with dining area and a small sitting room with a sofa/daybed, CD player & VCR/TV. There is an upstairs sleeping room with two twin-size beds and a half bath, accessible from the exterior staircase to the large redwood deck. All linens, dishes, cooking utensils and other necessaries are provided.

The cabin has a partially covered natural stone patio complete with barbecue, fire stove, its own desert cowboy spa, hammock and furniture to sit out and observe the heavens and desert surroundings. The cabin has its own roadway and feels very private although it is in reasonable proximity to the other amenities of the ranch.
