Special Events



Secluded Thunderbird Lodge Retreat cabins, perched on the edge of Joshua Tree National Park, offer breathtaking settings with majestic high desert views for a variety of special events. We can accommodate intimate indoor events as well as outdoor gatherings. 

 • Weddings

 • Receptions

 • Retreats

 • Reunions

 • Private Parties

All of our rustic homesteader cabins have eclectic furnishings with effortless western charm. Each is equipped with a full kitchen, bathroom(s), private outdoor seating areas, and a barbecue. All cabins also have fireplaces, evaporative coolers (used in the desert for air-conditioning), Wi-Fi*, and ample parking spaces. Event planners are welcome to bring in additional equipment for their event. 

We offer reasonable space rental rates, which range in price depending on event requirements. With reservation and deposit, we would be happy to provide vendor recommendations for event planners, officiants, catering, servers, tables, seating, and other necessities.

In the gallery below, we have included a map of our cabins, which are all located a few minutes from each other.
