We discovered the high desert to get away from the stress of the large city. We fell in love with this area because of the silence, the pure air, the mystical open spaces, the trasparent light, the spectacular sunrises & sunsets and the canopy of stars. A true communion with nature.
Excellent place to unwind, to watch the star filled nights, commune with nature and charge your batteries. Lots of gentle trails for hiking and exploring. Gorgeous Joshua Tree National Park nearby. Lots of Art Galleries and famous Pappy & Harriet Palace only 5 min. away. Home of the world famous sound baths at the Integratron.
1) Belated birthday celebrations
2) The Perseid meteor showers
3) Acknowledgement of 50 years of friendship
We got - all of those plus- the peace of the desert, the charm of La Casita,
the magnificence of Joshua Tree National Park, the astonishing clouds across the sky, our personal tribute to the soul of Gram Parsons, the quiet of device-free living and much more.
Rancho Mojave was a perfect refuge. Thank you,

Kathy said it all- la casita was just lovely. I loved all the fanciful touches

Had a lovely long weekend at the Casita - the right blend of remote but not isolated. The property is charming and the desert is serene and relaxing. We had a weekend of meteor showers (one of the reasons we came). Wildlife (quails, jackrabbits) abound. The nearby Joshua Tree National Park is magnificent. Good place to refresh and renew. We enjoyed our stay!
The casita was ultra clean and comfortable. Perfectly set in the middle of the sierras and dessert scape. I found myself not wanting to leave the property because it was so comfortable and quiet. Cecilia did a beautiful job of decorating the interior and paying attention to detail. A wonderful experience.
This cabin far exceeded our expectations, set in a great location off the beaten track. Easy distance to Palm Springs and Joshua Tree NP for daytrips and a comfortable place to spend the night.
We were super pleasantly surprised by this little cabin! Very cool architecture, design & decor. The place was clean, well cared for, and had everything we needed. Would definitely recommend.
Rancho Mojave is a wonderful high desert destination escape.
Leave your normal daily routine behind and enjoy the beauty of this charming casitas.
It will rejuvenate your soul while imprinting the images of the desert in your memories.
This place is breathtaking. The owners are amazing and will respond to any questions or issues right away. The pictures listed definitely do not do the place and land justice. Pioneer town in which the property is located, is very unique and a short, beautiful drive from Yucca Valley. I will recommend this place to friends and family and am looking forward to staying again.
We are surrounded by mountains with gentle trails to hike.
Things to see: Orchid Farm in Landers, Intregraton in Landers, Noah Purifoy Sculpture Park, Pappy & Harriet Palace (Music club/restaurant) in Pioneer Town, the Swap Meet in Yucca Valley, Antique Markets, in Y. Valley & 29 Palms, etc.
