The Mustang Cabin is located on the beautiful Rattler Ranch property: 3 mid-century rustic bungalows on 5 acres with boulder and panoramic desert views, 2 miles from "downtown" Joshua Tree, and the west entrance to Joshua Tree National Park. It is also possible to hike directly into the Park down the dirt road, 1/2 mile from the bungalows. This is a private and quiet retreat, with few neighbors.
Rattler Ranch is in it's 10th year of operating as a vacation rental property. It is professionally cleaned, and never owner-occupied
The Mustang Cabin is decorated rustic/western style, with a queen bed in the bedroom, and a living room with kitchenette at one end. It has a wood-burning stove inside, and a large covered patio, with outdoor sofa, table & chairs, grill, and burn barrel to keep you warm while star-gazing. Spectacular views from the patio!
Rattler Ranch is beautifully landscaped with ocotillo, palm trees, cactus, desert willows, elms, sycamores, smoke trees, desert pines, and many other desert plants.
The property abounds with wildlife - jackrabbits and cottontails, roadrunners, desert tortoises, coyotes, lizards, and dozens of quails that spend their nights roosting in the palm trees.
World famous Joshua Tree National Park is nearby (2 miles to the Visitor's Center), for rock climbing, hiking, and touring. The town of Joshua Tree has several eating establishments, a health food store, visitor's center for the Park, outdoor equipment & climbing suppliers, art galleries, a saloon, and gift shops.
In the nearby town of Yucca Valley you will find a cinema, more restaurants, and antique shopping. The Twentynine Palms Inn has an excellent poolside restaurant on a desert oasis, 20 min. away from Rattler Ranch. Also worth visiting is historic old west Pioneertown, and Pappy and Harriet's Saloon, for fine barbecue eating, and (email: hidden) music.
Joshua Tree also has 2 music festivals, held over a three-day period every May and October - the Joshua Tree Music Festival, and the Joshua Tree Roots Music Festival. The last 2 weekends in October feature a studio tour of local artists. And, of course, the springtime wildflower bloom is very popular. So check them all out, and stay at Rattler Ranch.
