Kde budete

Spring Creek, Nevada, Spojené štáty

Elko was settled over a hundred years ago by the railroads, and ranchers with cattle/sheep. In those years Basque herders spent their time in hills and mountains with their sheep. Basque boarding houses and restaurants today testify to their early presence. The Star Hotel and restaurant, Silver street in Elko, is a popular spot for afternoon and evening gathering. Toki-Ono, Idaho Street, serves traditional Basque dining.
Gaming, legal in Nevada, also played a part in Nevada's settlement, and, after the early 70's, gold mining again became important to our economy.

Cowboy Country Bunkhouse: Your location for backcountry skiing, hiking to mountain lakes, wildflower hikes, birding. Only 30 minutes from winter/summer fun in the Ruby Mountains, midway to Moab, Utah!

Mountain biking? Stay an extra night in the Bunkhouse and check out the spectacular Bike Trail in the Ruby Mountains and the Mountain Bike Trails at "Elko Snobowl Ski and Bike.

Looking for a place near Spring Creek High School for graduation travel? Spring Creek High School is within walking distance; Elko High School, a 15-minute drive.

John and I have lived in northern Nevada for over 30 years. We decided to open an AirBnB because what we love about traveling is meeting interesting people, and hosting offers just that, guests from all over the globe, friendly people with fascinating stories.

John moved to Elko as a young boy and spent summers working on a remote cattle ranch north of Elko. He sold life insurance for the MassMutual Life Insurance Company, and ten years ago started a touring business, Cowboy John Tours. He toured prospective employees for local businesses, guests at our Bnb, facilitated the "Ranch Tour" workshop for the National Cowboy Gathering, and shuttled folks to hike the Crest Trail in the Ruby Mountains only about 20 minutes from the BNB.

We both love to hike and explore northern Nevada, and John enjoyed fly fishing and riding horses. Janice loves hiking and identifying wild flowers in the Ruby Mountains. We travel to Ecuador when we can where our newest grandson lives. When you stay with us you'll notice rugs and alpaca blankets Elan's parents Loni and Greg have given us from Ecuador.

Many stop at the Bunkhouse on their way to and from Yellowstone, Tetons, Moab, Utah, or San Francisco, and we love to meet them, but we're especially delighted when some stay for the experience we offer of northeastern Nevada: open space, quiet, robin-egg blue sky, fishing, hiking in the Ruby Mountains, wild horses, cross-country skiing and snow mobile trips in winter. You can leave your snow mobiles, horse trailers, boat trailers, mountain bikes here on the property in the evening when you drive into town for dinner.

We are midway to Moab, Utah! mountain biking "headquarters!" You can stay in the Bunkhouse and check out the spectacular Bike Trail in the Ruby Mountains and the Mountain Bike Trails at "Elko Snobowl Ski and Bike before you finish your drive to Moab.

Children are welcome. When the weather is nice there's a hammock outside with comfy pillows. The road to the BnB makes a great walk after dinner and you're welcome to relax with a walk or sit in the evening on the patio. There's a fire ring for a small fire at night. We can help with fire starters and wood; please ask. Also, there's a small barbecue by the front door with brickets.

We allow pets, too. I request pets not get on beds in the BnB; the dog hair is difficult to clean from alpaca blankets on the beds!
There are many places you can walk your dog: down the lane and near the old horse corral. If you walk the lane to the entrance and continue straight ahead on the dirt road, across Boyd-Kennedy lane to the dirt road up BLM land there's a great view of the Ruby Mountains.
I have a few flower beds near the entrance to the BnB. Please keep pets out of the flowers. You may take a plastic bag with you for dog-mess cleanup. Extra plastic bags are in the kitchen cabinet on the far right before you enter the saddle room. Help yourself.

Cowboy Country Bunkhouse has Two bedrooms:

One bedroom with a California-King bed, and a desk with lamp, pen and paper, and chair. The second bedroom has two beds: one a Twin bed, the other, a generous Queen-sized bed, the desk with lamp and chair, and pen and paper, of course! There is also a sofa bed in the living room.

The complete kitchen with counter island seating is fitted with refrigerator, stove, oven, microwave, dishes and cutlery. I'll bring other utensils from my kitchen supplies upstairs if you need more!

Just this year (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) we began to accept pets in the BnB. We ask that your pets fit a short list of requirements:
1. A pet bed for sleeping. No dog or pet needs to sleep on beds we supply for our human guests! And no dog needs to be on chairs or couches. The BnB has alpaca blankets throughout the apartment from son Greg and Loni who live in Ecuador. The lovely blankets and throws are extremely difficult to clean of dog hair, so we appreciate your dog NOT sleeping on chairs/couches. That’s why you brought the dog’s bed!

2. You are welcome to take your pet for a walk on our property or down the access gravel road for the BnB. Keep in mind that while leashes are not required, if you have a dog who might run away, you are responsible for controlling your animal. I don’t worry much about dog “messes” being left on the property unless the mess is close to the BnB. In that case, please bring a plastic bag to corral the mess for the garbage. (I have a “cash” of plastic bags in the kitchen, far cupboard to the right of the refrigerator for your use). There’s also an extra water dish.

When you walk down the road leading to the BnB you’ll see parking lots for local gold mines. Cars are left there before shift begins and workers are picked up and brought back at day’s end by “Coach America” buses. You’ll see many of them in town and on the roads leading out of Elko.
Nevada is a mining state, and has been for years. (A fun trip by auto is to investigate many mining towns and old mine sites.)

Nevada has more mountain ranges than any state in the US. (other than Alaska)!! Over 250 mountain ranges fill the area between north eastern Nevada and Las Vegas to the south. Also, we have no river that empties into an ocean. They all sink into the earth; one of the largest sink areas is east of Lovelock, Nevada.

The traffic light you went through on Lamoille highway before you turned onto Trescartes: take a right into the small mall and another left right away for Khoury’s, a well-equipped grocery where you’ll find almost anything you need to prepare a meal.

Going the other way, toward the Ruby Mountains, on Lamoille highway for 15 minutes or so to its end you’ll find the charming village of Lamoille with wandering deer and turkeys, a dinner house restaurant with fine evening dining, and a bar which serves good hamburgers.

The Presbyterian Church (The Church of the Crossroads) is at the end of Lamoille road and is open for tours during the week. Go in the side door and ask for a tour to see the lovely early (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) s stained glass windows and old “pew” chairs in the sanctuary.

On the drive to Lamoille, just before you entered the village you noticed a road to the right that headed toward the Ruby Mountains. That road the main road that deadends at “Road’s End” is about 20 minutes up and worth taking, if the season is right and there’s no snow on the road. There are pull-outs along the road for pictures of the alpine terrain, some with explanatory information about glacial formation of the Ruby Mountains.

You’ll drive by the road which goes into the only campground in Lamoille Canyon.

Back on the main road, just past that campground exit, you’ll see a pull-out for a “Nature Trail,” that’s worth examining if you’d like a short, easy hike to a beaver dam and back, birds in the quaking aspen trees.

This main road dead ends at the top of Lamoille Canyon where hikers have the choice of hiking to Island Lake (2 miles up), Lamoille Lake (2 miles up) and the Horse-Trail up to Lamoille Lake (2 miles up.) The hike to Lamoille Lake stops at the Lake, but energetic hikers can continue on to join the Ruby Crest Trail coming from Harrison Pass 37 miles to the south. There are signs explaining the hikes, and lovely benches for relaxing installed by the Ruby Club of Elko Desert Sunrise.

Check the bookcase in the Airbnb for books, (quite a few!) that detail various hikes you can take in the Ruby Mountains, or ask me. I’ve done 99% of them.

Počas vášho pobytu

The Bunkhouse is the perfect place to spend the night to and from San Francisco, Yellowstone, the Tetons. We love having guests stop to spend the night, but we really enjoy it when guests stay longer and experience northeastern Nevada. There's so much to see and do here.
Take your son or daughter fishing at South Fork reservoir (20 min away). Hike with the family to a mountain lake, camp or picnic in the Ruby Mountains. Take your boat and fish the Ruby Marshes. Drive north through hills covered in wildflowers and quaking aspen canyons to visit Jarbidge, Idaho. Drive south through Nevada's basin-and-range topography to catch glimpses of wild horse herds. Spend days in Nevada's open back country sightseeing, hiking, fishing, and return to the bunkhouse for a quiet evening on the patio or take a nap in one of the hammocks strung in the trees. In Winter bring your snow mobile or cross-country skis to play in the snow.

The California Trail Interpretive Center is interesting, a great educational experience for children. The Western Folklife Center, home of the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering is unique, in the historic Pioneer Hotel and bar in the center of Elko.

A bike path runs east along highway 227 to Spring Creek, west to Khoury's grocery, and the many back roads are great for family riding. More extreme biking can be found at Elko's Sno Bowl, up the road in the Ruby Mountains, and the road to Angel Lake, outside Wells, NV to the east.
Free parking in front of the flower bed at the BnB. While you tour Elko we will safely store your recreational vehicles, motor bikes, boats, snow mobiles, bikes, ATVs, and your trailers for a small fee, $20. Storage for equipment, ski, snowshoes, climbing, hiking, camping gear is inside the BnB.
