Overview

About the property

Way beyond Glamping, the Cultus Camp compound is an art installation itself.

Cultus Camp is a majestic Joshua Tree preserve and retreat with a stunning Glamping Cabin and complete privacy. Cultus contains a modern bathhouse with an artful kitchen including a variety of complimentary teas and coffee, two private bathrooms and an outdoor shower with a view. Explore the various lounge nooks, wander the sculpture garden, feast at one of our monumental dining areas and gaze upon the cosmos in the vast star viewing grounds. An epic patio with a 16 foot dining table and BBQ is the perfect spot to grill, dine, or just enjoy the vistas. The cabin features a plush memory foam queen mattress, a single sofa sleeper, the writers desk equipped with a vintage Royal typewriter and a remote control stove for cozy nights inside. The 18 foot raised cabin deck provides the perfect spot for morning tea and sunset escapes. We are fully off-grid with the purest water to ever come from the earth. There is plenty of solar power for hot showers and all your charging needs. No cell service on the grounds provides a true opportunity to unplug.

We are a seven minute drive to the legendary Pappy & Harriet's music venue and saloon, fifteen minutes to The Integratron & historic Giant Rock and only ten minutes to the culinary art & magic of La Copine restaurant.

Owned and created by artists, Cultus Camp compound is an art installation in and of itself with many hidden mysteries to unearth. After falling in love with the landscapes and infinite stars of Pioneertown & the Mojave Desert, Jeremy and Katrina decided to preserve and share the natural beauty of the land in a unique and artistic way with others. There is nothing like this isolated pocket of Joshua Tree forest. Be sure to watch the stars, as there are more than you ever thought possible. You will experience cosmic time, see wildlife, and fall in love with Camp. If you're a writer, artist, a family, or simply an adventurist, we welcome you to visit and experience the true Mojave mystery that is Cultus Camp.

You'd be delighted to meet Jeremy and Katrina anywhere in the world. The fact that they're your hosts in the desert is precisely the kind of magic you'll come to expect after a few minutes spent in this Joshua Tree forest. Everyone should have a chance to experience Cultus Camp, but you'll be tempted to keep it a secret, because within your first 30 minutes, you'll likely be planning your return.

Pioneertown, California, is a precious and unique gem. The winding, 4-mile (6.4 km) drive northwest as you enter Pioneertown has been designated a California Scenic Drive.

LOCAL'S TIP: "You ain't done nothing right in your life till you visit La Copine Restaurant for a bite to eat." - Jeremy Kenyon Lockyer Corbell

The town started as a live-in Old West motion-picture set, built in the 1940s. The set was designed to provide a place for the actors to live while using their homes in the movie. A number of Westerns and early television shows were filmed in Pioneertown, including The Cisco Kid and Edgar Buchanan's Judge Roy Bean.

Roy Rogers, Dick Curtis, and Russell Hayden were among the original developers and investors, and Gene Autry frequently taped his show at the six-lane Pioneer Bowl bowling alley. Its construction was credited to Arent E. Thompson in 1947 and Rogers himself rolled out the first ball at Pioneer Bowl in 1949. School-age children were hired as pinsetters until the installation of automatic pinsetting equipment in the 1950s.

As of 2016, Pioneertown had a population of 362.

On July 11, 2006, parts of Pioneertown was burned in the Sawtooth Complex fire. Firefighters managed to save the historic movie-set buildings, but much of the surrounding desert habitat was damaged. Among the buildings saved was Pappy & Harriet's Pioneertown Palace, a longtime local club and landmark built within one of the original sets, which counts among its regular patrons notable musicians, including Eric Burdon and Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin fame. On Oct.13, 2016, Sir Paul McCartney make a unexpected but spectacular appearance for a 100 minute concert and 22 songs for 200 guests only.

"Strolling down Mane Street is a bizarre experience. An abandoned bowling alley stands opposite a reconstructed jail, bathhouse and bank. Carts of “dynamite” sit like props in the dusty street, presumably from the weekly Old West re-enactments. Unsettlingly realistic dummies slouch in rocking chairs on porches, and fake crows are tied to rails and posts. We pass a grave with a wooden sign proclaiming “Welcome.” It is hard to tell what is real and what has been purposefully set up to unnerve. On the day we visited, the four-block town was empty aside from locals selling handcrafted saddles and feathered dreamcatchers, and a couple of tourists who seemed as confused by the place as we were. The houses on Mane Street look more like live-in works of art than homes; some residents had installed a display of broken chinaware, 50s-era toys and colored glass in the front yard."
