We look forward to seeing you this Summer!

We hope this info will inspire you to visit someday soon!
Starland Community is located in a rural neighborhood, on a desert bluff, surrounded by mountains and canyons. We welcome adults (18 and older) from all walks of life. We are LGBTQIA inclusive honoring all visitors. Most of the property could be clothing-optional. We offer a rustic and simple, yet loved place to relax, and enjoy the splendors of the Mojave Desert.

Our facilities are available for group and individual retreats workshops or other events.

Starland Community is located in California's Mojave Desert, and is 3500 ft. above sea level. We have four distinct seasons at Starland Community. Average temperatures (F): January: High-50; Low-30;April: High-80; Low-50; July: High-95+; Low-70; October: High-80; Low-50. Winters are often quite windy and cold, sometimes a trace of snow falls; Spring and Fall are the best times to visit, with balmy warm temperatures, few rain storms, and calm air. Summers can be hot, windy, and dry. Generally, be prepared for unusual conditions, since the weather is known to change quickly, and in a short time.

Starland Community is a home for its residents, and a quiet retreat for members and guests. As a private not-for-profit organization, Starland Community's residents and other volunteers serve as the keepers of the land, and the hosts to its members. Our funding comes from member dues, fees for overnight accommodations, resident rents, and friendly, generous donations.
