Breathe in the fresh desert air the moment you open your car door and experience pure relaxation
Joshua Tree's The Folly Collection
The Folly House
Joshua Tree, a sleepy town of less than 10,000, is home to one of the most stunning high desert national parks offering surreal rock formations, animal life, breathtaking sunsets and star gazing that is beyond magical. The desert has been a favorite of old Hollywood and musicians for years.
We stayed at Folly House, a tiny minimalist architectural hideout off a remote dirt road. The first visual of Folly House took my breath away- the desert is so vast and, yet, this tiny home made of steel and glass immediately grounded me to the place and moment I was in. While the interior design is simple and chic, the natural beauty of its surroundings from within Folly House was truly magical. The desert nights in this remote space are dark and quiet, but promises stargazing like you’ve never seen before to awaken your senses and connect you to the earth. For travelers who are looking to feel grounded, inspired and connect with serene natural surroundings, Folly House is a must.
