Chickasaw Homestead is a temple to the medicinal landscape of the magical Mojave Desert and the rich creative culture of Joshua Tree. An original 1950's homesteader cabin with modern comforts and artisan details, it has been rated one of the top 20 vacation rentals in Joshua Tree since 2013. It is the perfect solo retreat to reflect and energize creative projects in peace and quiet, and for couples and small groups to connect and explore the National Park and all the region offers.
An original desert homestead cabin built in 1958 with pink concrete block and beamed ceilings, Chickasaw was completely renovated & modernized in the summer of 2015. Original details were kept while Jenn’s updates made the space more modern, pragmatic and comfortable.
The initial cabin was once a single room with a wood burning stove and an outhouse. Guests now enjoy the rich history and down-to-earth experience with all the latest amenities. The space is equipped with a gourmet kitchen, therapeutic mattress, and solar powered heat and a/c.
The original wood burning stove is now a kitchen centerpiece, and a vintage Malm fire place warms the living room. The curated selection of local art and handmade items, family heirlooms, mid-century furniture, and desert curios acquired while exploring the American southwest gives the space an eclectic charm and warm healing energy. The color scheme of each room was inspired by vintage postcards displayed near the entryways. The collection of classic vinyl, books, and art supplies provide plenty of inspiration for indoor relaxation and cozy evenings by the fire when you've had your fill of the beautiful landscape.
The cabin sits alone on a 5-acre parcel with incredible 360 degree desert & boulder views and no immediate neighbors. You can hike into spectacular rock formations directly from the property, as well as explore the art installations at A-Z West. Two miles to town, you will find cafes, art galleries, a Saturday farmers’ market, health food store, yoga studio, and unique shopping. The Joshua Tree National Park Visitor’s Center is also there, with an entrance to the Park itself a short drive beyond that.
