During a soul-searching road trip to the Joshua Tree area, the owners stayed a few nights at the 29 Palms Inn and decided to build something extraordinary in the area. It was important to them to be connected to the outside at all times in the house, while also being protected from the extreme elements and to build a healthy environment that fosters a connection to the Mojave.

Rammed earth is an ancient construction method seen in Europe, New Zealand, Africa and drier climates and uses a combination of native materials, a binding agent and colorant to mix into the material by batch. For Morning Dove, the owners took the soil from this property, which is mostly granite, screened it to get the consistency they wanted and mixed it with specific colored mortars. The mixture is poured into forms and compacted by a tamper. Once the first layer was completed, the forms were moved, and the process was repeated. This type of sustainable design does not exist anywhere in the California high-desert.

Each bedroom suite is a feast for the senses and features Quince linens, a TV, desk area, ensuite bathrooms, and inviting seating nooks positioned for optimal views. The bedrooms offer glimpses of boulders, rabbits, picturesque pink sunrises, and of our mesmerizing night sky from the comfort of premium mattresses.

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, 29 Palms, Pioneertown, Morongo Valley, Yucca Valley, and Landers. 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.
