-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 Horse Around. 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 this 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.

We spent five incredible days at Horse Around and truly had the best Airbnb experience of our lives. We stumbled upon this listing whilst looking for a place in the Yucca Valley and were a bit hesitant to book at first, seeing as it was a brand new listing. However, we were quickly sold on the incredible location and from the very first contact, Homestead Modern took away any doubts that we may have had and went above and beyond to make sure we had an amazing time. The house itself is absolutely stunning - everything is brand new, super clean and aesthetically just the nicest place, not cluttered at all, but still so cozy! Beds were super comfortable and the kitchen stocked to perfection. The view from every single window is absolutely breathtaking, too. The biggest selling point though are the outdoor areas and the pool/spa in particular. It really feels like you’re completely by yourself in this beautiful landscape! If you stumble upon this gem, book it now!!

Desert Dreams
Hello fellow wanderers, I recently had the pleasure of staying at the iconic "Horse Around" in Pioneertown—a desert oasis that blends mid-century chic with modern comfort. Perched on the edge of untouched wilderness and surrounded by weathered boulders, "Horse Around" is a mid-century gem meticulously restored in 2023. The original butterfly roof and the blend of California modernism with Scandinavian hygge comforts create an enchanting atmosphere. This 2-bed cabin is a canvas of contemporary living, offering sweeping terrazzo-tiled pool views and numerous seating areas that follow the sun. The heated in-ground pool and spa, surrounded by boulders, provide a sensory floating experience. The fully equipped kitchen, outdoor dining with a propane BBQ, and the mesmerizing outdoor fire-pit complete the experience. The outdoor spaces seamlessly integrate with the desert landscape. The San Pedro cactus garden, the original water towers, and the propane fire-pit area surrounded by native plants add to the charm. The pool and covered lounge area with sun loungers capture majestic views. With Joshua Tree just a 15-minute drive away, "Horse Around" offers both tranquility and accessibility. The full-time, local support team ensures a seamless experience. Thank you very much for the stay. Will be back!!
