Holiday Rental House
A secret vintage gem to make all your Mad-Men-in-the-Desert dreams come true! Allow us to introduce you to Jackalope. The early-1960’s come alive as you walk through the door of the quaint ranch house, its midcentury décor instantly propelling you back to a more dapper moment in time. In true 60’s fashion, all cell phones and computers should be locked away and forgotten…this place is about being present and soaking in the ambience, allowing it to elevate each moment into something truly special. Nothing makes you feel more classic-desert-chic than reclining in an Eames chair while watching the sunrise over the mountains. Throw some Getz~Gilberto bossa nova on the stereo and let your inner Bardot or Newman out to play as you explore each little nook and cranny… ...A secret vintage gem to make all your Mad-Men-in-the-Desert dreams come true!

I've stayed here a couple of times and I just love Jackalope. This place doesn't feel like a rental, it feels like home. The view from the porch is breathtaking - I use it as my phone screensaver. If you're looking for peace, quiet, beautiful...More

My husband and I enjoy traveling with our two dogs and we often stay in cabins. Jackalope qualifies as one of the best equipped and most relaxing places where we have stayed. There is a fenced in back yard where even our big Belgian sheepdog...More
