Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday home in Joshua Tree - Rattler Ranch

House, 1 Bedroom + Den, 1 Bath

Rattler Ranch, NOW 100% SOLAR POWERED!

Come enjoy the expansive space of the beautiful Mojave Desert at Rattler Ranch.Situated on 5 acres (along with 2 other bungalows), and is NEVER OWNER OCCUPIED, unlike many properties on VRBO.

The Casita de la Senorita at Rattler Ranch, is fully furnished and decorated by the artist/owner, and is known for its' quiet and privacy. Rattler Ranch has quickly become a favorite of the many visiting artists, musicians and writers, in the tradition of U2 and Gram Parsons - for accomplishing their creative work, or just kicking back. It is also popular with first time desert visitors, and veteran desert lovers alike.

The Casita De La Senorita, has one bedroom with a queen bed, sitting room with one twin daybed, dining/sitting room with wood burning stove, and really comfortable queen sofa bed, full kitchen, bathroom, and outdoor patio with dining table and chairs, barbecue, & burn barrel 'hobo hotty' to keep you warm for nighttime stargazing. Ask about other cabins available.

Outstanding views of the boulders on the north edge of Joshua Tree National Park, Mount San Gorgonio, the Bullion Mountains, and the wide open spaces of the Mojave will calm and inspire you.

Rattler Ranch is beautifully landscaped with ocotillo, palm trees, cactus, desert willows, elms, sycamores, smoke trees, desert pines, and many other desert plants.

Chickasaw Homestead is 1/2 mile down the dirt road.

From Rattler Ranch, you can hike directly into Joshua Tree National Park on a trail 1 mile down the dirt road. The property abounds with wildlife - jackrabbits and cottontails, roadrunners, desert tortoises, coyotes, lizards, and dozens of quails that spend their nights roosting in the palm trees.

World famous Joshua Tree National Park is nearby (2 miles to the Visitor's Center), for rock climbing, hiking, and touring. The town of Joshua Tree has several eating establishments, a health food store, visitor's center for the Park, outdoor equipment & climbing suppliers, art galleries, a saloon, and gift shops.

In the nearby town of Yucca Valley you will find a cinema, more restaurants, and antique shopping. The Twentynine Palms Inn has an excellent poolside restaurant on a desert oasis, 20 min. away from Rattler Ranch. Also worth visiting is historic old west Pioneertown, as well as Pappy and Harriet's Saloon, for fine barbecue eating, and great live music.

Joshua Tree also has 2 music festivals, held over a three-day period every May and October - the Joshua Tree Music Festival, and the Joshua Tree Roots Music Festival. The last 2 weekends in October feature a studio tour of local artists. And, of course, the springtime wildflower bloom is very popular. So check them all out, and stay at Rattler Ranch.

I am an artist living and working in Joshua Tree.

Diane purchased this house in 2004

It's a fantastic desert location, with awesome boulder views & open desert vistas from my property up the hill south of the highway, and I fully enjoy sharing this desert magic with my guests.

Peace, silence, beauty, and wildlife - 100% solar powered. AND Rattler Ranch is only 5 minutes away from the west entrance to Joshua Tree National Park.

EFFORTLESS DESERT GETAWAY

Really couldn't ask for anything more. Exceeded expectations. Most peaceful sleep I've had in a long time. Wonderful location. We were delighted with our stay there.

We booked this cabin a few days before our planned arrival - so beggars can't be choosers. That being said it felt very private and quite comfortable with nice touches of art. Few things to note: view is of the highway and while the cabin is quite high up...you hear and see the cars. Few things were irksome: Not enough dishes, light switches were crazy, no trash can in bathroom and you have to walk through bedroom to get to bathroom.

WHAT A PEACEFUL PLACE

  • 5 out of 5
Our stay at Casa de la Senorita went by far too quickly, but it was wonderful. Such a quiet respite from our busy lives, and a great jumping-off point for hikes in the park. The house is very well appointed -- beds are super-comfortable and the outdoor areas beg for a break with a glass of wine. I'm already recommending the place to friends.

MUSTANG CABIN AT RATTLER RANCH

  • 5 out of 5
Mustang Cabin is a sweet little spot to hang in Joshua Tree. It's a comfortable distance off the main road to relax, but close to the town. The decor is clean, comfortable and cozy, with cool artistic touches. Diane and Christopher are truly caring and wonderful hosts. They took care of all my concerns with care and attention.
