This architectural gem has been operating as a very successful Bed and Breakfast Inn for over a decade. Just outside the west entrance to Joshua Tree National Park, the 3 bedroom 3 bath estate was designed with straw bale construction by renowned local architect Janet Armstrong-Johnston. The 5 acre property includes private patios for each bedroom with outdoor platform beds, hot tubs and outdoor showers. There is a two-floor master suite with bedroom, bath and sitting room/office. There are several additional rooms and many outdoor entertaining spaces. The property is lovingly landscaped with native trees and plantings, and has a expansive gathering space and a large ceremony circle. The great room has 17 foot ceilings styled in metal, a wall of glass doors and a working fireplace. There are too many architectural and artisinal elements to mention. Known as Sacred Sands, it is a work of art, and a welcoming retreat. The 360 degree views of the mountains, park and city lights will have you weeping.
