-- 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 everything at Sundown Ridge. 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.

Great spot. Nice design and amenities in a quiet area. The hot tub and cowboy pool were great as was having a car charger. Will definitely be back.

Lovely weekend in Joshua Tree! The Homestead feels fresh and modern, nicely decorated and has all the equipment/features for a comfortable stay. It boarders a nice stretch of natural desert landscape filled with Joshua Trees for the perfect setting

My wife and I loved this place! Joshua trees on property, surrounded by wild life, star gazing in the hot tub, outdoor grilling, relaxing by the fire pit, and the Sundown Ridge is incredibly beautiful. We instantly fell in love and enjoyed our peaceful/quite retreat. Quick drive to Joshua Tree National Park and to the local Vons/WalMart. The 2 structures on the property where done perfectly and had all needed amenities in them. Only downside is the hot water in the shower seemed to to quickly and the host asked if we wanted any spirits, wine, or treats for check in. We responded with s’mores, they said no problem, but oddly nothing was there. Definitely recommend this gem and we look forward to booking another stay in the future.

My boyfriend and I had an amazing weekend staying at Sundown Ridge! The area is very quiet and secluded, but accessible to pretty much anything needed such as grocery stores, and close to the National Park West entrance. The hot tub, lounge chairs, hotel-style amenities, modern appliances, fully stocked kitchen, and washer/dryer truly made this place feel like home. The bed is soft and extremely comfortable, and the parachute towels feel heavenly! We had no issues with connecting to the Wifi and were able to stream onto the TV. Our highlight was sitting in the hot tub while stargazing. The host is extremely communicative, transparent, and easy to get ahold of. Also, the app they curate provides information and detailed instructions for the various amenities on the property and things to do in the area. Thank you guys again for such an amazing stay and weekend!

Awesome Spot
Wanted to leave a review on our great little getaway. We got moved over to a new property called Sundown. It was perfect for our group of 4. There is a casita that offers privacy then a common area where we could hang and relax. The views out here are incredible! Communication with checkin and everything was easy. Cant wait to explore more in the high desert!!
