Main House – Description

Come and live amongst true wilderness of the High Desert. The ranch is only 17 miles from the entrance to the Joshua Tree National Monument and is 2.5 miles off the 29 Palms Highway at the north end of Morongo Valley.

This is a wilderness hideaway tucked up a mountain canyon.  The site has wildlife and birds, a constantly flowing creek, huge cottonwood trees, and large climbing boulders. Shooting of guns is possible but hunting is not allowed.

The ranch house shares 200 year old Cottonwood trees looking down on a fast running creek that never goes dry. The ranch is surrounded by BLM Wilderness designated area and the creek originates in that area from springs just 300 yards above the house. Cottonwood trees, grasses and meadow plants cover the canyon floor.

Primary heat is provided by a wood stoves.  You will have your own gate key for access to the ranch.  The security gate is located about 1/2 mile down the road before the ranch.  Drugs are also not allowed.

Some furnishing is available as shown in the photos.  There are no king size beds available.  Single beds are in place but double beds can be exchanged for them.   Arrange with our property manager at 760 363-6595 to visit the home and see it is your ideal retirement location.  Cell phones do not work in the canyon.  A land line phone and TV  service can be purchased.

As a desert wilderness area, we have a variety of wildlife including several species of reptiles, raccoons, squirrels, coyotes, rabbits, quail, an assortment of bird life, plus about once a year we are visited by deer, bear and mountain lion.
