Rent Huell Howser’s house? That’s amazing!

Howser bought the property (located on the west end of Twentynine Palms, near  Joshua Tree), in the 1990s. He added his own special touches by adding yard sculptures, a sunroom, and a modern sculptural steel fence designed and installed by the award-winning Belzberg Architects group of Santa Monica.

When Howser died in 2013, artist Joan Robey purchased the home for $395,000. She has added her own upgrades to the 2,221 square foot ranch-style  home and renamed it “The Wheelhouse” – and it is now available to rent for events and retreats. According to the website:

The Wheelhouse is now available for you to rent for photo shoots, weddings, special events, corporate gatherings, writer and artist retreats and extended family holidays. It is an ideal home base for park explorers and hikers, and a perfect yoga retreat location. Whether you want to spend a month or more by yourself working on a novel, finishing a screenplay or simply unwinding from the breakneck pace of city life, The Wheelhouse is both luxurious and rustic. It’s a unique and restorative place to experience alone or with family, friends or colleagues.

But, can you really put a price of walking around the property all day and night gleefully saying, “Luis, look at this! It’s amazing!!”
