Overview

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...

•• Weekday special - book two days and receive the third day free!•• excluding holidays. Make sure to mention if you would like this weekday special and we will send out a special offer at booking to include the third day.

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 Wonder Valley

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

Spectacular

  • 5 of 5

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!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cabin and it was perfect for two of us and my pup. The yard is gated in so your dog can happily roam around here. The cabin is decorated in a cool desert chic way, and the fire pit was great for stargazing. If you’re looking for a secluded, quiet getaway I highly reccomend this cabin!

Beautiful Inside and Out

  • 5 of 5

The pictures make it look small but it is actually quite spacious inside! LOVED the practical and attractive layout, retro look but all the modern necessities. The kitchen has everything you need: blender, coffeemaker, toaster, and microwave along with all the rest. The a/c unit performed extremely well and there's a Roku if you have Hulu or Netflix and enjoy a show with supper or before bed. Firepit and grill outside (we used both!) and lounge chairs for laying back to enjoy the stars. We didn't use it this time but there's a cute retro trailer on the property as well to serve as a bunkhouse if you need more sleeping space.

There was a bit more evidence of other humans around than I care to see in the desert -- I like to have as complete privacy as possible -- but Encanto is in a nice, quiet setting and we never actually saw any other people around, nor did anyone bother us, so it had just as much privacy as anywhere more remote, and the drive into town for supplies was considerably shorter. It's far enough out that you won't get significant "light pollution" spoiling the sky at night.

Jeff thinks of everything, all the small touches from soap bars and "T.P." to coffee filters, wine glasses, and filling the firepit with wood! It's always a pleasure staying at one of his places, and we will definitely be back.

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!
