The Healing Powers of Joshua Tree

Amidst spectacular vistas at 5,900 feet and nestled in the foothills of the Big Bear Mountains is the undiscovered gem called Burns Canyon. Twenty-five minutes off road from historic Pioneertown is our gorgeous retreat property we call Darling Springs. Surrounded by adjoining BLM and national forestry land, we are six miles off-road, truly off the grid, powered by solar and a well. We are a desert oasis of health wellbeing and tranquility — a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of daily life.
