About the property

Sleeps 2. 1 Bedroom. 1 Bathroom.

Welcome to the Enchanting Encanto Cabin!

The renovated Encanto Cabin is a vintage Jackrabbit Homestead in a spectacular and dazzling desert setting. It is perfect for a romantic weekend or a recuperative and peaceful escape from the clamor of the asphalt jungle. NEW: The cabin now has unlimited internet via Mojave Wifi. You can choose to disconnect, but you don't have to…

Located just 14 miles from the Joshua Tree National Park North Entrance in 29 Palms, this charming homestead cabin is on 5 acres in a magical desert setting. The interior is very comfortable 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 features a comfortable Queen Bed, a large sliding door closet, extra blankets and pillows, a new shower stall, 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 outer gated fence, and there is also an interior fenced area that is perfect for your Canine Companions. Also on this 5-acre parcel is a fire pit for your night time 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 at the enchanting Encanto Cabin is soooo good many of our guests extend their stay. We bet you won't want to leave either...

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.

Lucy’s Trailer:

We've added Lucy's Trailer to the Encanto Cabin property. This pristine vintage trailer once served as Lucille Ball's dressing room at the RKO Studio in North Hollywood. This trailer sleeps 2 to 4 people. It is super comfortable, with a bathroom and fully equipped kitchenette. The back bedroom has two twin beds; there is a day bed in the middle room area and a large couch in the living room. If you would like to rent this trailer, it is an additional $75 a night. We do not rent the cabin out to separate parties; it is only available to the guests that are staying at the Encanto Cabin. Please let us know if you would like to rent this additional space.

Cheers!

About Jeffrey Perry

My name is Jeffrey Perry and I am the manager of the Encanto Cabin and the recently renovated Wonderama Ranch (2015). 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, 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

Why Jeffrey Perry chose California

The owner of DesertLand loves Wonder Valley. This part of the high desert is so pristine and the Encanto Cabin is arguably in the most visually spectacular section of Wonder Valley as it is intimate, up close and personal to the Wonder Valley Mountain range. Sunsets here are unspeakably beautiful.

What makes this cabin unique

The quiet hush of the desert. The brilliant sky. An opportunity to unplug and be human.

Guestbook comments from the manager

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!

Awesome Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent spot to relax and recharge. I stayed for two nights after a Vegas conference - what a contrast! The drive from Vegas through Mojave is gorgeous. The cabin is supercool and looks like the pics. And I've never been anyplace so quiet in my entire life. Just amazing. Definitely a thumbs up!

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful introduction to Joshua Tree - gorgeous sunsets and sunrises, house is stocked with everything that you need. This would also be an incredible location for a photo shoot, brilliant inside and out.

Manager is wonderful and very responsive - very plugged into the cool side of the valley, art, culture and fun.

Great get away in The Mohave Desert!

  • 5 of 5

The refurbished cabin was wonderful for our 3 night stay. Set up against the mountains to the north with a clear view to the east and west and far enough away from the neighbors the setting was great. Spring wildflowers everywhere. All the amenities ( with the exception of no laundry) you could ask for, satellite TVand good wifi. Windows into the cabin open to the east, sunrises were magnificent to wake up to....great patio in front and fire ring in the yard that's also fenced in for dogs. Option to rent the Lucile Ball retro travel trailer that is onsite, we WILL do this next trip, it is very cool...overall highly recommended and we are coming back for more!
