This Renovated Train Caboose Serves as the Perfect Guest Quarters

Your guests will totally flip over the opportunity to stay in the renovated train caboose that’s located on the property. In addition to the train caboose, the unique property also includes a stretch of movie set western town facades. Walk through Pioneertown and take in the barbershop, hotel, church, teepee, “house of negotiable affections,” jail, general store, and a stable with room for eight horses with riding rings – whatever your pleasure!

Outdoor living spaces abound on this large desert property, as well. Covered outdoor space off the main house is perfect for backyard barbeques and gatherings. Located just outside of the dining room, the area features wonderful flow from indoors to outdoors. Nearby, you’ll also find an above-ground hot tub spa for relaxing under the clear desert skies.
