We are Stephanie Smith and Jay Babcock. Over 10 years ago we came to the hi-desert, landing in slightly settled, mostly unfenced quiet wilderness, with deep unsmogged horizons, enveloped nightly by a fantastically starred sky.

Stay in this magical homesteader cabin with extraordinary views of Joshua Tree National Park. The cabin sits on 5 acres, and feels remote; we’re on the grid but well off the pavement. Enjoy the spectacular panoramic sunset and sunrise—as well as a blanket of stars.
The cabin, which has been featured in the New York Times ‘T’ travel magazine and the book ‘Jackrabbit Homestead,’ was constructed in 1955 and still has its original green paint. [READ MORE]
We’re veteran AirBnB hosts with over 300 “5-star” reviews.
Stay in this lovely, gently renovated piece of history. Pioneering homesteaders came to this area over 50 years ago and built small cabins on large tracts of land, some of them pre-fabs. This is one of them!
Less than 15 minutes’ drive from downtown Joshua Tree. Spectacular views, and desert wildlife, flora and fauna. [READ MORE]
To our surprise and delight we now own a derelict 20-acre fruit orchard near our homestead cabins. The property was purchased by a previous owner in 2003, scraped, irrigated, planted with 1000 fruit trees (now all dead save for 32), and then abandoned about 2 years later. We bought it at last summer’s tax sale. Follow along as we rebuild, at SuneverFarms.com or on Instagram.
