High Desert Eden

"Though I've spent time in the high desert before, never was I met with such comfort or luxury. Everything about Robin and Max's Eden is wonderful - from the hosts to their gardens to the casita to the stargazing. Use the spot as a jumping off point for hiking and adventure throughout Yucca Valley and Joshua Tree, or simply recline and let the desert peace become you."

"Staying in this delightful desert haven was a refreshing change from other "destination" sites" I've been to . The scents of the high desert were accentuated by the sounds of the myriad birds regaling me.  The sunrises and sunsets inspire tears with their magnificence and majesty.  The casita had everything a guest could have wanted in a highly comfortable and extremely satisfying environment filled with fine art and lovely vistas. The beauty of the hills and boulders surrounding this dream location is still whispering its song of enchantment to me.  I'm going back!"

Nearby Joshua Tree National Park

While there are fabulous things to do and see all around us, if your desire is for silence, solitude and reflection, you never have to leave the grounds to enjoy a complete high desert experience.

Grab your camera and snap a colorful bird bathing at our waterfall. Meander along gentle trails, climb up into the hills or boulder and cactus garden behind the casita.

Explore our ancient seasonal wash, a treasure-trove for rock hounds...and there is nothing more heartstopping than a moonrise over the mesas.

If you're up for some live music and country cooking, take a 5-minute drive down the road to PAPPY AND HARRIET'S PIONEERTOWN PALACE. One reviewer said, "The scene is amazing: old desert folk, bikers, musicians (known and indie), Angelenos w/out attitude, country folk, all together to share food, booze, desert views and live music.  You can't have a bad time here."
