Welcome to the Enchanting Encanto Cabin!
Located just 14 miles from the Joshua Tree National Park North Entrance in 29 Palms, this newly renovated homestead cabin is on 5 acres in a magical desert setting. The interior is comfortably outfitted with mid-century furnishings that accent the original 1950’s architecture without being too precious. We have adorned the walls with some interesting local “found” art treasures that we unearthed from in and around the 29 Palms area.
The cabin is a spacious single room with a designated kitchen area and bath. It is perfect for a romantic weekend for two or the solo traveler looking for sweet and quiet solitude.
The cabin features a comfortable Queen Bed, a large sliding door closet, extra blankets and pillows, a new shower stall, WIFI for your laptop, a TV enhanced with a satellite dish connection and a DVD player, and a fully equipped kitchenette with microwave, coffee maker, pots, pans, dishware and utensils.
Outside there is an extra large patio area with a table and chairs and chaise lounges. The cabin is enclosed from the street by an exterior gated fence and there is also an interior fence area that is perfect for approved Canine Companions. Also on this 5 acre parcel is a fire pit for your nighttime storytelling - stargazing pleasure.
The desert vista will put on quite a show at Golden Hour and about that time you might want to pour a glass of wine and put some shrimp on the small hibachi-like grill. Life is good.
If the cabin is available on the dates that you want, you can go ahead and instantly book it online, even if you are booking with well-behaved pet friends.

My name is Jeffrey Perry and I am the manager of the Encanto Cabin. I've always been a big fan of the high desert and have been coming out here since the 70's. I have remodeled many popular vacation cabins – notably the Sapphire Ranch and Cabin 51. In early 2013, I was approached by Dana Desselle, another big fan of the high desert and the owner of DesertLand.com, to remodel the Encanto Cabin. The old homestead cabin was in sad shape, just a falling down uninhabitable heap really, but the potential of the setting was obvious. The renovation road was winding as remodels tend to be, but we are quite proud of the resulting cabin and everyone who sees it concurs – it is simple and comfortable and the setting is simply stunning.
Jeffrey Perry purchased this cabin in 2013
The owner of DesertLand.com loves Wonder Valley. This part of the high desert is so pristine and the setting in Godwin Heights where the Encanto Cabin is located has arguably one of the most glorious desert vistas to be found on the 29 Palms side of Joshua Tree.
The quiet hush of the desert. The brilliant sky. An opportunity to unplug and be human.
Excellent ! If you are looking for peace and quietness you have the right adress. It feels like you are alone on Earth. The interior is brand new. You will love it !
My husband and I and our dog just spent a magical christmas at the encanto cabin.
It's not very often that modernist design can combine with a cozy and comfortable feel, but this cabin achieves that. It is both pristine and impeccable.
You are really in the middle of an undisturbed desertscape, although there are a few other houses visible about 1/2 mile away so you don't feel completely isolated.
Also, the large southern exposure picture windows allow for a light-bathed vista--really amazing to wake up to.
All this and heat that works, reliable wifi, functioning satellite tv and an eclectic dvd library, a fully functional kitchen, reliable hot water, etc. We have gotten used to funky but pricey desert lodging with corroded electric contacts and rusted shower stalls passing as "charm"; this was a welcome and huge step up!
IF you love the desert and quiet open spaces, this cabin has it all. The bed was so comfortable, the cabin clean and nicely decorated. This is one of the greatest places we’ve stayed at. We loved the mid-century modern furnishing ,design, and outstanding layout. Ask Jeff about the story behind the 1953 travel trailer located on the property.
At first we chose this cabin because it allowed dogs then realized it had everything a person would want for a nice secluded getaway. It has a nice fenced in dog area, an outside fire pit, a small BBQ, and a great selection of books and DVDs. We picked up groceries at the Stater Brothers, which has quality items with great prices and exceptionally nice employees. We opted to take a driving tour instead of hiking at Joshua Tree since there are only a couple of dog friendly areas in the National Park. It was a perfect vacation spot. Thank you to both Jeff and Dana for your exceptionally good taste and ease of renting the cabin.
This remote "cabin" is a perfect oasis from which to explore Joshua Tree NP and other desert landmarks. Extremely comfortable, clean and well supplied, decorated with adorable "finds" and echoes of the '50s. The barking dogs (far away, audible but only barely) were the only disappointment, and obviously are not the owner's fault. We agree with previous comments that cooking your own food is preferred because of the distance to town and paucity of restaurants. The glorious sunsets, moonrises, and dark night sky provide spectacular entertainment.
Jeffrey thought of everything! Right down to cute kitchen plates & flashlights! I hesitate to even review... since it may become even more popular! Gorgeous views and out BichPoo Loretta Lynn loved the yard. The patio was perfect for evening cocktails and cooking up BBQ. We will be back. P.s. we can't wait to see what becomes of the "Lucy Trailer". The only thing that would add to this liitle desert diamond? A hot tub!! :).
We enjoyed a restful weekend at the Encanto Cabin! The patio is a great space to sit and enjoy the surroundings. We were sad the DVD player wasn't working properly, but I am sure the owner will fix it soon. I do recommend bringing your groceries and cooking onsite. There are restaurants in town, but we didn't find one that we would recommend to a friend. The yard is great; our dog had an amazing time, too.
We like to go out and get lost in the Mojave exploring the old abandoned homesteads that still dot the high desert landscape.
