Enjoy the peaceful silence, private desert expanses, wildlife, and unforgettable starry night skies from the hot tub. Only 8 minutes to the village of Joshua Tree and 15 to the west gate entrance of the National Park
“Leafe and Katherine’s place is perfect for a little getaway. I love how the backyard is fenced to get that sense of privacy. I appreciate that they allow pets, it makes it easier to travel! We did a lot of cooking during our stay, and having all the pots and pans, as well as a ton of spices to choose was a great touch. I even got to use the French press! The heater kept the place nice and cozy for you after being out in the cold. They have tons of suggestions on where to go, whether than be in nature or at one of the local restaurants. I would definitely recommend their place!”
The Wanderer is newly remodeled with a modern theme in the heart of the Joshua Tree Village. It's a short 4 mile (11 minute) drive from the National Park Entrance and walking distance to the downtown area. Enjoy a hot tub dip under the stars. Be lazy and lay in the hammocks all day or night. Enjoy hanging out with friends outside on the patio. Or lounge around in the modern interior.
“Cute little house in a quiet neighborhood, perfect location that is not too far from everything. We really enjoyed the backyard which has hammocks, a fire pit, hot tub and outdoor dining area. It was the prefect home away from home, would definitely stay again!”
This is not for everyone! We offer a small and very private (heated) cabin that sits on a seasonal stream. There is no bathroom, plumbing, or electricity. There is an outhouse. It is not suitable for toddlers, as there is a stream with a steep rocky bank and a narrow bridge without a railing. Lake George (the actual lake) is 1/4 mile away as is a marina (2 closest are Castaway and Fishers). The village with public beaches (and bathhouse) is a 10 min drive. There is a hiking trail from the cabin.
“Thank you so much for allowing us to spend a much needed relaxing long weekend at your place! It’s clear that you put a lot of thought into the location and the amenities as well as the details of the cabin itself. The cabin is comfortable, cozy, and clean. The property is beautiful inside and out. It’s also functional with many hooks and drawers and the way the space is laid out. It was lovely that both of you checked in on us during our stay. It is so considerate that you have added “little touches” such as the battery operated fan and light. The smattering of just enough solar lamps to provide landmarks but not mar the perfect darkness. The various labels around the building and grounds. The black hose allows for the water to warm for washing up. You provided soap, empty separate trash and recycling bins, a few cooking utensils, a grill, two chairs for sitting around the fire, and wood available on site. We slept well on the bed and it was so nice that you provided extra pillows, blankets, and towels. Even paper towels, cleaning wipes, a broom, a vacuum, an indoor trash can. Highly recommended and we can’t wait to stay again!”
