“After doing the whole guys only camping thing during our first outing to Joshua Tree, my friends and I decided that we’d rent a cabin/lodge and bring the girls the next time. The Mesa House was everything we hoped it be, and more. It is a truly magical property in a very magical place. The views from the mesa of Joshua Tree, the mountains, the joshua trees and other flora and fauna were absolutely spectacular. The sunsets were otherworldly and the moonlit desert was inviting for night hikes, with several different paths and roads to explore. The home itself was perfectly designed and furnished and befit the ambiance of Joshua Tree. We had an incredible time and would be tempted to visit again over trying something new next time. Lori’s response time was great and she gave us complete privacy during our stay.””
