We booked this trip at the last minute and we couldn't be happier about the experience. Knob Hill Ranch is a very nice place, a bit hard to find at night, on the outskirts of town, but in a very nice neighborhood. We were greeted by Natalia and found the guesthouse to be very nice and clean, with all the necessities provided. We visited during Labor Day weekend, so it was pretty hot during the day even with the AC on. The bedroom does not have AC but keeping the door open was manageable at night. They have horses on the property and you can arrange horseback riding with the host, our girls really enjoyed it. Look forward to visiting again in the spring!

Very friendly hosts, house is bigger than it appears in the photographs. Lovely fresh linen, and plenty of towels.Loved petting the horses, and watching the wildlife. Short drive to shops. 30 min drive to Palm Springs and Joshua Tree west entrance. We visited in June, in the middle of a heat wave, so the air conditioning a major bonus. X

Natalia, Don and Barbara are all super wonderful and friendly! The house was clean, charming and peaceful. I enjoyed catching up on a little bit of work on the back patio watching the bunnies, roadrunners, squirrels and owls on the property. Lovely place to catch sunrise and sunset! I got to enjoy a trailride while I was there and even though I was anxious at first, it was one of the best days ever! Riding through JTNP on the back of a beautiful horse was magical! Thanks Biscuit for being a good boy! :) I definitely hope to come back in the future and stay here again.

My family and I stayed at knob Hill Ranch. We had a wonderful time. The guest house was more roomy than we anticipated and beyond clean. Natalia, Don & Barbara were true hosts and personable. The kitchen and bathrooms had everything we needed, the beds were comfortable, there was a barbecue with charcoal available and a clay fire pit with wood for an evening fire. Our two younger children and dog have were welcomed and had a great time. Don told stories about their horses and Barbara was wonderful as she showed our children how to brush and saddle a horse, they then got a ride around the arena. We had an exceptional weekend!

Natalia and Don were perfect hosts, we felt completely relaxed and comfortable staying at their charming guest house. It's funny - when we first got there I (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN)d "best things to do with Kids in Joshua Tree" and boom "Knob Hill Ranch Trail Rides" was a top return - we had just found them through Airbnb and didn't realize they were such a well regarded local horse ranch. Our kids were STOKED on all the animals on the property (domestic and wild) We weren't able to do one of the full Park rides but Natalia was kind enough to let them ride one of the horses locally for a bit. The guest house is right next to a little rock bluff that the kids could climb and explore and this time of year the blooming plants were so varied and beautiful - lots of different cacti, juniper, desert shrubs and wild flowers - the smells were amazing. Very quiet and peacful at night with sweeping views of the valley - you're out of town enough to feel secluded but only a very short drive to the highway and only a 16 minute drive to Pioneer Town. We really loved our stay, from the warm and accommodating hosts to the location/amenities and Joshua Tree proper this one was a real winner. Thanks again Natalia & Don!

We loved staying here so much. Such a serene trip just what we needed to escape the city. Natalia was such a great host and told us about local scenic drives. We also did the 2 1/2 hour trail ride into Joshua Tree. Really a unique and amazing way to see the park.
