Just two hours east
of Los Angeles is Pioneertown's scenic Pipes Canyon
Escape to the tranquility and majestic vistas of this secret high desert paradise. At 4,400 feet, Pipes Canyon is nestled within the vicinity of Pioneertown and is an unspoiled gem within a ring of California's only flat-topped mesas, giant boulder formations, and the Big (and Little) Bear Mountain ranges. Otherworldly sunrises, sunsets, and jaw-dropping starry nights delight the senses. Lush vegetation, abundant wildlife and utter quiet calm the most tightly wound nerves. Living so close to nature, you can't help but slow down. It's like stepping back in time.
With four distinct seasons, Pipes Canyon in summer is the coolest and greenest of California's deserts. We have changing colors in autumn, riots of wildflowers in spring, and crisp winters with magnificent clouds, rainbows, and occasional snow.
An array of unique and varied accommodation offers "a different kind of civilized living" - from luxury casitas to elegant lodges and everything in between - perfect for everything from romantic getaways, artistic inspiration and small family vacations, to reunions, one-of-a-kind weddings and group retreats.
Once here, you never have to leave to enjoy untrammeled back road adventures, nature preserves, secret boulder gardens, world-class music at Pappy and Harriet's Pioneertown Palace or private lessons with an American yoga master. A short, scenic drive away lands you in Joshua Tree National Park, the mysterious Integretron, mineral hot springs or the largest Joshua trees in the world.
