BUNGALOW IN THE BOULDERS BOTTLEROCK HOUSE

Photos and Description of this holiday bungalow in Joshua Tree

Cabin, Studio + Other (See Description), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-5)

There was a time – before air conditioning, satellite television and the internet – when desert inhabitants were a breed apart. They lived their rugged, quiet lives almost invisible to the rest of us and identified with their harsh, natural world in ways that city dwellers did not understand. Their two-lane highways, telephone wires and lonely television antennas were their only connections to the outside world, and Route 66 was their mother road.

With a vision as big as a desert dawn, Cary set out to create a rustic world where the highway icons of the 1940s and 1950s could refill travelers’ imaginations again. Scavenging for roadside Americana throughout the deserts of the Southwest, Cary slowly built a collection of neon signs, gas pumps, classic car hulks and other colorful symbols of mid-century motoring. He assembled his treasures together around a quaint little bungalow and discovered something unexpected. He found that this humble getaway had the power to disarm, charm and transport his visitors to a slower, gentler world that they remember with fondness.

Yes, the Bungalow in the Boulders is a tastefully decorated, cozy home with all the modern comforts that a traveler expects. You will find ample crisp linens, a fully equipped kitchen, clean and modern furniture and plenty of electronic entertainment equipment. There is room enough to sleep an entire family indoors and abundant seating and cooking gear to entertain outdoors. You will stay warm by the cast iron fireplace or cool under the old-school swamp cooler.

Surrounded by such abundant natural beauty, you may find yourself in the mood to explore. With the entrance to Joshua Tree National Park just minutes away, you can get started on your own personal adventure almost immediately. If you decide to stay on the grounds, take time to explore and investigate Cary’s rustic collection of relics, set on five private acres of desert wilderness. The atmosphere at the Bungalow has inspired artists, photographers and even filmmakers to create enigmatic work, so bring your sketchbook, your paints, your journal, and most of all, your imagination.

When you try to explain the funky vibe you feel, surrounded by working neon signs, old-time highway artifacts and even a genuine bottle house, you may grasp for words. Imagine waking to the sound of quail gently cooing outside your screen door as the glorious morning sun streams through thousands of colorful bottles embedded in the walls of your quiet cabin. Imagine raising a glass by the brilliant light of the desert moon, whose only competition are the shimmering heavens stretched from horizon to horizon. Now imagine the faces of your closest friends aglow under vintage neon motel signs that once guided weary voyagers along forgotten highways to get-togethers just like this.

Come to the Bungalow in the Boulders to raise that glass, take that hike and swap stories around the fire. You may feel a gentle tug from days gone by when life seemed simple – almost as simple as it is at the Bungalow.

I'm a contractor and decorative artist with many interests. I have a passion for collecting vintage road relics, which explains the vintage motel signs, old gas pumps and other yard art located on the property. I love exploring the desert and spending time with my family and friends.

The Owner purchased this bungalow in 2003

I have been visiting Joshua Tree ever since my youth and told myself that one day I would have my own desert hideout. I found this property just steps outside the park boundaries and fell in love with it. To be able to open the doors and feel and smell the desert breeze, to hear all the sounds of the birds and other creatures is peaceful. I'm very happy to be able to share with others the beauty and serenity of this desert oasis .

Experience the stunning natural beauty of the California desert as it envelops you at The Bungalow in the Boulders. take in colorful sunsets, the star filled night skies and the quiet solitude of the rustic, yet fully equipped retreat. Located within 2 hours of Los Angeles, The Bungalow in the Boulders provides a unique escape from the stress of daily life and an entrance into one of the finest National Parks in North America.

Surprised my sister for her 40th and had an amazing girls weekend here! We had so much fun. The place was super clean and had everything you need for comfort. We loved the cottage so much we only left once for a quick trip to Pappy & Harriet's! Cary the owner was warm, friendly and very accommodating. LOVED THIS PLACE!

A PERFECT GETAWAY.....

  • 5 out of 5
“No man needs a vacation so much as the man who has just had one”…

Once you visit Bungalow in the Boulders this quote will have meaning for you too.
It’s the kind of place you don’t want to leave.
And when you do leave - you’re quick to plan your return!
Imagine if you will, a place that transports you back to a time when life was simple.
Traveling was about good clean fun.
Bungalow in the Boulders is THAT kind of place.
Don’t get me wrong – it has all the amenities that life has to offer.
Great bathrooms, a wonderful kitchen.. and even something you won’t need: A TV.
Believe me, you won’t crave modern entertainment when you let your imagination soar at this place.
From vintage cars, to mid-century trailers and neon signs from eras past…
Your curiosity and childlike wonder will take over.
You’ll find yourself saying things like “How DID they do that?” as you stare at the beautiful maze of bottles that make up a private little cottage…
Just a stone’s throw from the main house.
Bungalow in the Boulders is filled with wonderment for kids of all ages….
Making it the perfect place for families, friends or couples just looking for a private getaway.
This might be one of the few times in my life where it wasn’t about the journey, but the destination!

We loved the place with all the items in the yard. I really liked the 36 Chevrolet coupe with all the bullet holes, I used to own one. the neon lights at night are great. we enjoyed the animals that came to feed. The bungalow is comfortable with everything you need. Josuha park was close to see, we did some hiking.

AN INCREDIBLE MEMORY-FOR A LIFETIME.

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I took a trip to Cary's incredible piece of art in May 2011 for my last birthday before the birth of our twins. We meant to write this review after we stayed but the twins came early. We were absolutely mesmerized with this home, the land and of course the fantastic use of "heritage" art. The neon signs at dusk-amazing. Thanks Cary for the great memories, the discussion on being a father at an older age and for your help and kindness. We keep telling people around the bay area of your beautiful retreat. Some day we plan on bringing the twins down so they can experience what you did as a kid and to give them a memory for their lifetimes. Peace, joy and thanks.

MAGICAL PLACE

  • 5 out of 5
My friends from Australia and I spent 2 magical days at this gem of a place. The owner Cary has such a unique and comfortable desert get-a- way. This was more of an experience than a place to stay. We lit all of the vintage neon at night , played games on the spacious patio, discovered a scavenger hunt on property, discovered a message in a bottle in the bottle house....all I can say is do not hesitate to book this incredible place. Thank you Cary for sharing your vision and place.
