-”This place is a rare example of reality exceeding expectations. The site is spectacular, the home is an architectural masterpiece..the desert landscape and the modern structure so brilliantly sited, nestled in the boulders underneath the glorious expanse of sky. The tasteful and carefully curated furniture, art, and accessories made us feel like we’d landed in an oasis of discernment and exceedingly good taste.” -Richard

-LIVING SPACE-
Prepare to be amazed by the one-of-a-kind living room, which features a breathtaking wall of windows that look out to the rocky landscape of the 440-acre private preserve abutting the home. Comfortable furniture and a cozy fireplace mean this room isn’t just for show, but also a lovely spot for entertaining or hanging out.

Black Desert House is equipped with high speed WiFi, heating, and air conditioning.

ACTIVITIES/ATTRACTIONS
Visitors come to the High Desert for its unique landscape, culture, and recreational opportunities, as well as for the weather - hot and dry summers and mild winters at our high altitude. Joshua Tree and the communities surrounding the Joshua Tree National Park include Flamingo Heights, Pioneertown, Morongo Valley, Yucca Valley, and Landers. You’ll be close to all the action at Black Desert House. Some of our favorite options available to you:

–Joshua Tree National Park: 800,000 acres of mystical beauty - Joshua Tree National Park is one of the world’s most incredible natural desert treasures. Sweeping, grand in scale and populated by granite monoliths and voluptuous rock and boulder formations. This quiet land, conducive to meditation and roaming, was carved by extremes in climate - wind, rain and an ever-present, relentless sun. Diverse forms of plant life are found everywhere, but none as unique or prevalent as the park’s namesake: the Joshua tree, standing majestically across the vast topography.

–Pioneertown: Step back in time to thus rustic Old West-style village. Wander through the historic buildings, visit unique shops, catch a live music performance at Pappy & Harriets, and experience the Wild West charm.

• The Integratron: New age-y healing destination with a sound bath, originally designed by ufologist George Van Tassel with the goal of reversing the aging process.
