Adjoining 33,000 acres of Wildlands Conservancy, our gorgeous solar and wind-powered Southwest casita is a refuge of quiet serenity. High Desert Eden's 22 acres is surrounded by a panorama of rare flat-topped mesas, jagged peaks and giant boulders. It delights the senses with breathtaking sunrises and sunsets, and the Milky Way on display virtually every night. Our luxurious casita with plush furnishings and stunning vistas from every window will delight you senses and soothe your soul. We enjoy four seasons here, each with its own distinct pleasures; spring with its unmatched wildflower bloom; summer (20 degrees cooler than Palm Springs, 10 degrees cooler than Joshua Tree) with maximum greenery and balmy, star-filled nights; autumn's crisp days and changing colors; and snow for a fantasy winter holiday. We are located 2 hours east of Los Angeles and a convenient, scenic 45-minute drive from Palm Springs International Airport. Historic Pioneertown is minutes away.More
