CABIN 51: THE EXTRATERRESTRIAL HIDEAWAY...IT'S 'OUT OF THIS WORLD'!

Joshua Tree Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Detached Unit, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3-5)

The Weather has been great! Warm days and cool nights: Now is a great time to come out and enjoy the Joshua Tree National Park and everything the surrounding Mojave Desert has to offer.

And believe it or not....right here in the shadow of the National Park...there have been countless reports over the years of Crashed Saucers, Captured Aliens and Secret Military Installations.

There is also a road...Old Amboy Road...that heads East from the Historic Town of 29 Palms. And because of theses stories and sightings, local folks have often referred to it as the MOJAVE UFO HIGHWAY...as it cuts through this really interesting and unspoiled part of the desert.

Nearly unchanged since the 1950's, just crusing along this 2-lane ribbon of blacktop seems to transport you back through time and space into an area of the Mojave Desert that has more UFO sightings and related phenomena than just about anywhere else. Many curious forgotten cabins and vintage trailers dot the landscape. This is also the secret back way to Las Vegas...and is traveled at various times by luxury vehicles, cars and slow moving old pickups...and occasional convoys of young military recruits in big transport trucks. (Wonder what's under those green tarps?) On one side of the Highway is the Joshua Tree National Park and on the other is the largest Military Base in the world. Perhaps it's these opposing forces that generate all this unusual activity? Maybe. Besides the many UFO reports, rumors have circulated for years of underground caverns and interdimensional portals out in nearby Dale Dry Lake. And even the Desert Bigfoot! Then at the end of the road is Roy's Diner and gas station along with the prehistoric Amboy Volcanic Crater. Hike up to the top and then down inside...it's like going to another planet!

All this Mystery is a great backdrop for plenty of Fun and Adventure!

And we just so happen to know a great place you can stay...

Welcome to CABIN 51 !

Located just off the Mojave UFO Highway (old Amboy Road) and only 18 minutes from 29 Palms and the Joshua Tree National Park. Situated high up on 5 scenic acres with a FANTASTIC view of the entire Joshua Valley, this fully restored Mid-Century Cabin is in like new condition. Modern and Retro furnishings compliment the unique theme of this Fun Desert Hideaway.

Enjoy the Great Outdoors: Relax on a large covered Patio with BBQ, table and chairs, lounges and hammock. Take in the spectacular Desert and Mountain views in all directions. (Note: Even an alleged UFO crash site is visible on a nearby mountain!) At night sit around a real-campfire and and gaze upwards at the dark clear sky with a million stars overhead. Listen to tales of visitors from other worlds and then wonder if we really are alone in this endless Universe.

I originally purchased this cabin as a get away for myself and friends from LA. I've always been a big fan of the high desert and have been coming out here since the 70's. Also been facinated with the extensive UFO lore associated with the area. And when I learned about the 'other' UFO Highway...Amboy Road...just outside 29 Palms, well, so much the better! What started as a 'quickie' fixup took nearly 2 years. But the final result is a perfect desert get away...situated in a perfect desert location. Up high with fantastic views of the mountains and the Joshua Tree National Park beyond. Having been in the retro furniture business in Los Angeles for over 20 years...I was able to accumulate alot of really nice furniture and accessories as well as fun collection of UFO artifacts to decorate the cabin with.

Jeffrey Perry purchased this cabin in 2006

This part of the desert is so clean and unspoiled. The view is some of the best you can find anywhere.

Peace and Quiet. Clean Air. Clear, Starry Nights. And The UFO Highway passes by right out front!

Spooky!

Spooky but fun! Cabin décor is amazing; the meticulous care taken to create such an authentic UFO-enthusiast's dream was unbelievable. I stayed there alone and the atmosphere really creeped me out which was a lot of fun. There is one house to the right of the property where the lights are on but no one appears to be home....or are they? The helicopters coming and going from the Marine base were interesting to watch and one buzzed the house at 1:15am...I wondered if they could see the glowing UFO in the yard. Cabin was cozy and comfortable...very good book and movie library! No surprises with listing and pictures. Owner is a great guy and the map he provides of the area had be exploring things I didn't even know existed.

We stayed at the cabin 51 and had a great time. Everything looks like the photos and was real clean and functional. Really quiet location to see all the stars and relax! Make sure to check out the Amboy crater which is not too far away and was worth the trip if you have the time to hike into it. The owner was great to work with too.Hope to come out again and stay here sometime in the future. Thanks!

Cabin 51 is a great place to stay if you are interested in UFOs . It's located close to the Amboy crater which makes for good day full of hikes and night spent at the cabin making food and endulging in their fantastic video collection. The place itself is cozy perfect for a couple. The charm overrides any minor critiques - chain link fence and close to the road but this place is best at night as the cabin glows green and you can watch the stars.

Wow...where do I begin? Well, after too many abductions from Zeta Reticulans, I knew I needed a break from the daily grind, or as Elmer Fudd would say, "west 'n' wee-wax-ation." When I came across Cabin 51 after doing a web search, I knew this was the place. I couldn't have asked for a better location, since I love Amboy crater, Exploring the Hole-In-The-Wall trail, sandboarding down the world famous Kelso Dunes, driving the historic Route 66, and hiking the spectacular Ryan Mountain Trail in Joshua Tree National Park. Cabin 51 is proximal to all these beautiful environs, and more. When I arrived, the cabin was exactly the way it looks in the photos. No hidden surprises. Even the UFO crash site was visible on the mountain side. And the grave of the unknown alien was visible in the distance. Jeff was extremely accommodating in all aspects. He clearly pays meticulous attention to detail regarding the cleanliness of the cabin. Cabin 51 truly has all the comforts of home-sweet-home. The air conditioning made a huge difference, since at the end of a busy day hiking and sandboarding, I was delirious from the heat. As soon as I crossed the threshold from reality, to the dreamland of Cabin 51, my inner alien breathed a sigh of relief. The obvious UFO motif was a hoot! It brought back so many wonderful memories of being a kid and reading about the Mothman, or the MIB. I kept waiting anxiously for one of them to show up, but unfortunately no such luck. The MIB's make-up tends to melt when it's 106 Fahrenheit in the shade, and the Mothmen seem to be ultra-sensitive to sunlight and hot heat. Being the only living soul for miles made my experience even more rewarding. It was almost as if I were Robinson Crusoe on Mars.

If you're looking for that proverbial needle-in-a-haystack, Cabin 51 is definitely the place. Jeff is a really cool dude and his coolness shines throughout the cabin. I'm totally looking forward to my next visit.

Party on E.T.!

human couple and wonder pup

It was our wedding anniversary, so we wanted something unique and quiet. We got both at Cabin 51! Jeffrey was very attentive and accommodating, and his property is immaculate. Most importantly, the Wonder Pup loved every minute of it. He is the center of our family, and especially loved the bunkhouse. The furnishings were both attractive and comfortable, as both the humans have "bad backs" and require certain characteristics from our couches and beds. The kitchen met our cooking and heating needs, and the peace and quiet could not be matched anywhere. The cabin has a 360-degree view of desert expanse, and it offered "retreat energy" we all so badly needed. Jeffrey thought of everything as far as amenities were concerned, and the shower doors reminded us of what we imagine a futuristic bathroom design might look like. No detail was missed, and the fire pit offered the highlight of our stay, under the blanket of stars! If you have children, it's a safe bet to assume they would adore the bunkhouse. It's also a great meditation space if you're out there solo or just want some private time. Just the right amount of subtle outdoor lighting, and just the right distance from the neighbors. Can't say enough good things about Cabin 51! Just go see for yourselves!!
