Joshua Tree Retreat (on the Border of National Park)Hot Tub,Pool,WiFi


Property Details

Updated: Oct 22, 2016
1 Bdrm, 1 Bathroom, sleeper sofa & futon,Sleeps 4,lvng rm,kitchen,1100sq. ft.

This is a beautiful 1100 sq. ft. cabin on 5 acres on the border of the Joshua Tree National Park that affords privacy and tranquility. The view is amazing. Although you can take the opportunity to visit the park, hike, climb, etc. Many people just stay and relax at the cabin, swimming in the pool and soaking in the jacuzzi.

The cabin is 1100 square feet with 2 large rooms, a kitchen, bathroom, and washer/dryer area on 5 acres with our residence. The king size bed is all natural and super comfortable. Snuggle under the down comforter. Pick a book from our library and read by the Tiffany lamps. Living area has a hand carved wood table, sleeper sofa and a leather chair. Board games and cards are provided.

There is nothing between you and the wonderland of rocks...except for the adventure.

Note: Pool is now open, and the hot tub is available all year long : )

We moved to Joshua Tree in 2007 to escape the city life and never looked backed.

Leslie and Tom were amazing gracious guest, they made us feel at home right away. The cabin Is very comfortable, clean and beautifully designed. For our first experience in JT, it couldn't be more perfect.

Heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5

One special place, two very friendly owners. An absolutely gigantic place - so close to the stars and to the Joshua Tree NP.

We enjoyed our stay and can recommend this place with good conscience. Very clean and quiet place, nothing to complain.

We hope we will get the the opportunity to spend some more days in this unique place. We just loved it.

Two Thumbs Up

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a weekend at the end of March. The property was very cute, nicely decorated and well kept up. We really enjoyed the peace and quiet, this was such a great escape from LA. The hot tub was a major bonus! Wish we had more time off from work, it would have been nice to stay one more night and just relax. We really enjoyed the one full day we spent exploring the nearby Joshua Tree Park. I would recommend this property to others visiting the area, it's much roomier and nicer than a hotel. My husband enjoyed using the grill to cook a meal and we enjoyed eating outdoors while having a glass of wine.

Had a wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

This vacation rental was everything we could have asked for: private, comfortable, convenient, clean, with great hosts and a fabulous location. Todd and Leslie welcomed us warmly upon arrival, showing us around the cabin and explaining how everything worked. We chose this rental for its location and pet friendly policy and were not disappointed. The floor plan allows you to close off the doors to the bedroom and living room, where there is wall to wall carpeting, and leave your dog in an area that includes a hallway and kitchen with tile flooring. Because of this, we were able to leave our senior dog in the house when we wanted to hike trails that either prohibit pets or would have been too taxing for him. There were plenty of scenic desert walks nearby to get him his daily exercise. We highly recommend a stay at Indian Cove Ranch if you want to get to know Joshua Tree National Park.

peaceful getaway, clean and comfortable, beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

This was one of our best VRBO experiences. The setting was fantastic, very quiet and peaceful but not too far from the national park entrances (north and west) nor from town. The house was clean and very comfortable and the rate was extremely reasonable. I highly recommend! The host was very kind and explained everything very well. We took our small children on the Hidden Valley hike (1 mile loop) and although it was hot under the desert sun, everyone loved it. We also wandered around the Indian Cove trail right around sunset, very easy and close by, and that was nice, too.

Beautiful homely escape

  • 5 of 5

After some time travelling and in Las Vegas this was the perfect place to stay. Todd and Leslie were fantastic, they met us when we arrived and showed us around the property and told us all we needed to know. Then we were left in the peaceful cabin to relax. The hot tub was very impressive and we spent a few hours under the stars in it.... So magical. The next day we went to Joshua tree national park which is only a short drive away! It was such a great day out.... We loved it. The cabin is so peaceful and has all the amenities and more. There is a big good shop 5 mins drive to get all the food you need then you can enjoy the cabin and escape from the rest of the world. I will be telling all my friends and family about how wonderful this place is and hope to return in the future! Thanks for a wonderful stay Todd and Leslie.

From the Owner

I walked by it and fell in love with it instantly. I knew I would buy it someday (not knowing it was for sale) and within a month, we were in escrow.
