Huell Howser's Desert Dream Home is Now Available to Rent

When California treasure and public television host Huell Howser died in 2013, he left behind his "dream home" in Twentynine Palms, out by Joshua Tree National Park, which he had lovingly restored and updated. The 1953 residence was decorated with an eclectic assortment of repurposed items (all collected by Huell) and offered serene and unfettered views of the mountains and desert that surrounded it. The house came up for sale after his death and sold last year, for $395,000, to artist Joan Robey, who is now marketing it as an event space called The Wheelhouse—it's available for rent for photo shoots; retreats for writers, artists, and yogi; weddings; and "extended family holidays," according to the official website.
