Rockin' Dawg Ranch!
Secluded Desert Ranch off the beaten path! ...with some special surprises and extra features for music-makers and artisans (*ask owner about special rates for booking the MacBook Pro, etc.).
BREATHE IN THE FRESH DESERT AIR
Bring your horse, guitar, or both! Rockin' Dawg Ranch is not only a scenic relaxing vacation destination, it's a unique place in which to create your art.
Close to festivals: Coachella and StageCoach; minutes to beautiful Joshua Tree National Park; and a short drive to downtown Joshua Tree and Yucca Valley for rustic treasure hunting in eclectic artisan shops. Don't forget to book a vibrational healing sound-bath at The Integratron, located 5 minutes from RDR.
When you've had a rough day of fun, you may fire up the BBQ, take a soak in the tub, and hunker down to watch a movie, while drifting off to the sound of coyotes in the distance.
Along with hiking, riding, relaxing, you'll have the capability to play music or edit audio/video, etc. The Rock-n-Roll Room includes a MacBook Pro dual Core Intel, Pro Tools, editing software, and more (too much to list here).
Get away from it all', write and edit your screenplay, script, treatment, or book, in the solitude and serenity of the high desert.
Let your hair down - Elvis is in the building! You'll enjoy the fun & folly of the Shelf o' Toys, including dress-up wigs, Pee-wee Herman glitter shoes, funky glasses, and a DVD Belly Dancing course!
The music Room also includes a green screen for your photography or videography; make sure to take lots of photos/videos and share them with us!
The main room, an African-themed hang-out, is a fun place to just kick back and watch a good movie from our expansive video library. Amenities also include WiFi and streaming video. Enjoy the private patio off the main room with a soaking tub and BBQ.
The main bedroom is a romantically cozy equine-themed room, which includes air conditioning and heating, and a cute retro-themed tiled (full) bathroom.
The old-school cozy kitchen is fully stocked with cooking utensils and everything you'll need to prepare a wonderful gourmet meal (be sure to pick up your fire wood and groceries on your way to RDR).
In addition, you may trailer your horses out to RDR ranch and stable them on our 2.5 acre property for your stay. Enjoy horseback riding on beautifully scenic trails surrounding Rockin' Dawg Ranch in all directions.
Rockin' Dawg Ranch is continually evolving! Make sure to visit us again soon to see what new surprises we have waiting for you! (see www.rockindawgranch.com for updates)
Rockin' Dawg Ranch supports Animal Rescue. Twenty-five percent of proceeds are donated to Pet Place International, Inc. (www.petplaceintl.org).
Jeff and I met in 1975 and formed a close bond and connection that would last until we would finally meet again 35 years later in 2009 (you may read our full bio on our site: www.rockindawgranch.com).
Shortly after Jeff and I reunited, we started a 501c3 non-profit Animal Rescue, which is located at 'Rockin’ Dawg Ranch Too'. We rescue and offer a sanctuary to horses, dogs, cats, pigs, and a donkey name Star.
Jeff is a professional drummer, animal advocate, vegan - and an old hippy soul. I have had a colorful life and have gone from being a hitch-hiking hippy (that's how we met) to a stenographer, dancer, dog groomer, published writer, vegan, alkaline-water drinking, animal advocate, and flower-child ol' soul. Together Jeff and I found our inner bohemian once again.
Our love for saving animals has become a full-time passion. In addition, we endeavor to start a low cost spay/neuter clinic in our community. Our ultimate goal is to unite animals and people together to help them learn to trust, and live with love, compassion and empathy.
In between animal activism, Jeff and I make time to play and enjoy live music. We're rich with family, friends, and lots of animals to love. We are blessed to live in this heavenly place.

A great place for writers, musicians, horse lovers (animals lovers), and an all-around relaxing, star-gazing photo-opportunity that is unique only to the high desert.
Jeff and I left the big city to live in an area where we could get away from it all, have a place to house and build our dog kennels and grow our animal rescue/sanctuary.
We're so grateful that God led us to the desert. We absolutely love the peaceful solitude of our home and the beauty that surrounds us. We knew that if we love where we live, that others will too!
Rockin' Dawg Ranch is a wonderful retreat to get away from it all, enjoy the brilliant stars at night, bird watch, and simply relax.
Moreover, we designed RDR with all the elements that we would enjoy on our own vacation: music-making, horseback riding/animals; the ability to create our art, and enjoy fun, folly, and relaxation - against a peaceful, beautiful, and unique desert backdrop.
