Welcome to Rock Haven Cabin
Joshua Tree, California
Spectacular views, privacy, and luxury define Rock Haven Cabin, which sits on 5 acres adjacent to Joshua Tree National Park. Our eco friendly cabin has been newly renovated to create an atmosphere of exceptional comfort, beauty and serenity. In an effort to live more sustainably in the desert we have installed solar power, and a rain water catchment system for landscaping purposes. This is the perfect place to unplug – you can soak in the private spa with a sweeping view of the National Park, curl up with a good book on a lounge on the patio, or cook a gourmet meal in the fully equipped kitchen.
The cabin can sleep 4, with a king bed in the bedroom and a pull out sofa bed in the living room. However, being a small gem, it is more ideal for 2 people or a couple with children. Luxury linens, including bathrobes and slippers are provided. There is a fireplace in the living room area and a gas barbecue outside.
The 2-person spa is next to the patio, sheltered by junipers and Joshua Tree’s unique boulder formations. We only use Dead Sea and Epsom Salts in the spa tub, cleaning and changing the water and filter after every set of guests.
It is not unusual to see local wildlife right from the front porch, including quail, road runners, jack rabbits, tortoises, coyotes and the occasional bobcat. In addition, Joshua Tree night skies are famous for their extraordinary star gazing.
For the adventuresome, you can hike into the park from the cabin, or if you want to explore it more fully, drive to the West Entrance, a half-mile away. The park is renowned for its world class rock climbing. It also offers excellent hiking with hundreds of trails ranging from easy nature walks to strenuous mountain hikes.
The local area has plenty for you to discover in addition to the beauty of the National Park. The village of Joshua Tree is a short drive from the cabin, where you can check out the Park Visitor Center, explore a variety of gift shops and art galleries, or hunt for treasures at local thrift stores. There are several good restaurants, a gourmet food store, a health food store, and a Saturday Farmers' Market. Joshua Tree also has an excellent yoga studio with a full schedule of classes.
The Joshua Tree art scene is vital and eclectic with regular gallery openings and nearly 200 artists living in the area. There is an Open Studio Tour each fall, and many artists welcome visitors at other times by appointment. Live music can be heard almost any day of the week at Pappy and Harriets in Pioneertown, and Joshua Tree holds annual music festivals in the spring and fall. There are also three live theater venues with a variety of interesting offerings.
There is something very special about the peace and spaciousness of the desert, and regardless of the time of year, Rock Haven Cabin offers a wonderful opportunity to relax and unwind in comfort.
