WEEKEND AWAY – OLD HEARD RANCH on Emily Alder
We had a quick weekend away in Pioneer Town for a family friend’s wedding this past Spring. We had booked a beautiful ranch for the evening for all our group including our family, my parents, along with my sister and her husband. I have only spent a limited amount of time in Yucca Valley and Joshua Tree, but it’s always been on our to visit list. Oddly enough while planning for the weekend I had this thought in the back of my mind of a friend whose girlfriend had purchased property out there and I had been watching their journey through social media. So it wasn’t until the night before we were planning to head up there that it hit me that we were staying at their house. It was quite the coincidence. Driving up to their beautiful ranch to see her happily working on the landscaping while their pup ran around was so heartwarming.
They have done a beautiful job putting together this vacation rental. Supplied with all the items you might need, plus games and activities, and a beautifully designed interior. We all had a blast playing Oregon Trail in the living room, horseshoe in the yard, and hiking on the property.
Walking distance to Pioneertown and a short drive to Yucca Valley, we all left with an eagerness to return. If you’re looking to visit the area, I highly recommend Old Heard Ranch. You can get in touch with Holly and see more about the listing here.
