Staying at an AirBnB in Pioneertown
Since Pioneertown is a year-round community there are a few rules and regulations that you need to know before renting your vacation spot. It may seem like the desert is the perfect place to go wild. No one is around and it’s desert so there is nothing to damage. That is 100% not the case. Most people don’t realize that many of their party plans are not legal in this area and the sheriffs and the jail for Pioneertown are very real. Properties in Pioneertown, Rimrock and Pipes Canyon are all private property. The Pioneertown Mountain Preserve is open to the public, but it is also privately owned and managed. The area is part of the Sand and Snow National Monument and many of the plans and animals are endangered and protected by law. The whole Desert/Mountain region is a high wildfire danger area and anyone caught starting any kind of fire will be fined and will be billed for damages and for Cal Fires expenses.

Some fun and exciting places to visit while staying in a Pioneertown vacation rental.
Explore the Joshua Tree National Park
Make sure that you give yourself plenty of time to explore the national park itself. With its unique rock formations and distinctive Joshua Trees set against a barren desert landscape, Joshua Tree National Park is one of the most exciting places on the planet. There is a fantastic variety of things to do in the park, from checking out the strange rock formations, admiring the panoramic vistas at Keys View, exploring abandoned mines and ranches in the wilderness. At night there is incredible stargazing in the crystal clear night skies.
Joshua Tree Saloon
Joshua Tree Town’s old western-style watering hole is one of the busiest stops in town. Get the feeling that you are in an old west saloon with the rustic interior and the decor. The food is excellent, and there is nothing better than an ice-cold beverage after a long day in the Joshua Tree National park.
Noah Purifoy Desert Art Museum
Rusty bicycles, old tires, retro computers, beer kegs, and even toilets are among the recycled items used in the art installations at the Noah Purifoy Desert Art Museum. The museum showcases artworks by Joshua Tree visual artist and sculptor Noah S. Purifoy. Located in the middle of the Joshua Tree desert, this open-air museum is a mix of quirky, creative, and clever, and many of the pieces convey compelling messages.
World Famous Crochet Museum
The World Famous Crochet Museum is part of Art Queen, a quirky art complex where recycled art is the overriding theme. Housed in a neon green photo booth, the crochet museum comes packed with cute and colorful crochet works—the museum’s extensive collection of crocheted bears, superheroes, unicorns, teapots, and much more. You will find some incredible installations and art pieces for sale around the Crochet Museum.
Desert Christ Park
Location on a hillside in the Yucca Valley, just off of Pioneertown road, the 40 stone white sculptures of the Desert Christ Park are remarkable. The statutes depict the Bible stories. The park is a tranquil spot to reflect and relax.
Beauty Bubble Salon and Museum
Beauty Bubble Salon and Museum is a fabulous hair salon turned museum. The hair wash stations and styling chairs sit amidst a fantastic collection of vintage beauty tools, colorful wigs, and old-time hair dryers.
Big Morongo Canyon Preserve
Nestled among the Little San Bernardino Mountains in the Sand to Snow National Monument, the desert oasis at Big Morongo Canyon is one of the 10 largest cottonwood and willow riparian (stream) habitats in California. The upstream end of the canyon lies in the Mojave Desert, while its downstream portion opens into the Colorado Desert.
The Morongo fault running through the canyon causes water draining from the surrounding mountains to form Big Morongo Creek and the marsh habitat.
At 31,000 acres with elevations ranging from 600 feet on the canyon floor to 3000 feet at the top of the ridge, this diverse landscape has been an important part of the Morongo Basin’s natural and cultural history for almost two billion years.
