Joshua Tree, California
Location, location, location. Surrounded 360 degrees by Joshua Tree National Park and habitat conservation parcels, Think Tank is a one-minute private hike into the park or a one mile drive into the main park entrance, but only four miles to downtown Joshua Tree.

In order to encourage wildlife, every effort has been made to keep the grounds natural and free of disturbance. Inside, you'll find polished concrete floors and Jenn Air appliances including a gas cooktop, fridge with ice maker, and a dishwasher. There's a foam topper on the queen bed for firmness options. Amenities include wifi, air conditioning,... Read more
