About Us

Wild Heart Ranch was founded by Blake and Bea Hodges-Koch  in 2020.

At Wild Heart Ranch, our goal is to offer a one-of-a-kind experience through adventure and storytelling. It is an immersive experience that you can live in.

Wild Heart Ranch is a 40-acre property outside of Joshua Tree California.

It has two separate listings: The Ranch (which includes the immersive experience) 

and the Sunset Cottage (a great getaway for a couple or solo traveler).

 

Blake Hodges-Koch is the Creative Director, featuring magical-tech by creative partner Thomas Meston and a special installation by artist Marina Fini, and more.

Our Story

Blake and Bea Hodges-Koch took their first ever trip together as a couple to Joshua Tree. They fell in love, not just with each other, but with this place. Shortly thereafter, they had purchased what has become Wild Heart Ranch,

and moved their lives there in Summer 2019. 

 

Blake comes from a background in video production, but in recent years has shifted work to his passion of immersive experiences, along with creative partner Thomas Meston. Blake and Thomas, inspired by companies like Meow Wolf and their love of escape rooms and puzzle-adventure video games, created immersive experiences with various wonderful partners starting in 2018.

 

With the arrival of the global pandemic of 2020, Blake and Thomas had the perfect opportunity to embark on their most ambitious project yet:

Wild Heart Ranch.
