This vacation home rental in Pioneertown is located in a magical high desert setting surrounded by expansive desert conservancy land in an enviable spot of great natural beauty. We like the lovingly tended gardens and the southwestern inspired adobe home that complements its place within the landscape.
Situated at 4,400 feet and set within a vast and peaceful tract of over 20 acres of high desert, this vacation home rental in Pioneertown is a refuge of serenity and spectacular natural beauty. Located in a largely undiscovered gem called Pipes Canyon Valley, it’s just a stone’s throw from historic Pioneertown at the foothills of the Big Bear mountains adjoining over 30,000 acres of nature conservancy land.
The charming adobe home is perfectly suited to the desert environment and is a homey and comfortable retreat designed as a peaceful and restorative place for relaxation and exploration. The cozy layout includes a comfy living area and dining space that adjoins a fully equipped kitchen and one double bedroom. With the sofa bed, the house can accommodate up to five guests. There’s also a screened-in porch that is the go-to spot for sleeping al fresco (weather permitting).
The property is solar and wind powered with all of the mod cons for comfort year round and shares the property with the owner’s home nearby without sacrificing privacy.
The gardens and surrounding landscape have been lovingly maintained as an all-natural oasis with native plants and cactus gardens, a fabulous labyrinth and a meditation teepee.
The property is also part of a wildlife sanctuary and guests are regularly treated to myriad sightings of dozens of bird species, coyotes, bobcats, jackrabbits and more as well as dark skies for epic star gazing.
Owner is a yoga master and can offer instruction. Wifi throughout, satellite cable TV with DVD player and video library, kitchen and bath essentials, laundry facilities, ample parking.
Located just outside of Yucca Valley and Joshua Tree National Park in the Pipes Canyon Valley, the home is also within minutes of historic Pioneertown, a kitschy Hollywood relic founded in the 1940s as an authentic frontier town movie set. Today there are a few shops, cafes and galleries to visit including the famous Pappy and Harriet’s Pioneertown Palace. There are miles of outdoor desert adventure in the area as well as several unique attractions and interesting local museums and art venues such as the Noah Purifoy Outdoor Desert Art Museum, and the famed Integratron. Palm Springs is less than an hour drive and further afield, the San Jacinto mountains rise above the desert floor and are lined with miles of hiking trails at a cooler elevation. Indian Canyon and Palm Canyon are also within driving distance for rural getaways in the Coachella Valley area. Los Angeles is a two-hour drive.
Pioneertown, California. Nearest Airport: Palm Springs International (50 miles).
BEST TIME TO VISIT: Spring and Fall are ideal but this part of the desert is fascinating year round. November through March is high season and the winter months are bright and sunny and popular with hikers and rock climbers.
