About this listing
Located in the rural ranching community of Smith Valley also known as Wellington and Smith where two lane roads and stop signs still exist, a true Western rural experience. No sidewalks, no street lights and no Starbucks!
The clean and cozy cottage feel apartment is *upstairs* with panoramic valley and mountain views. Get a good nights sleep in the queen size four poster Sleep Number bed. Two additional guests can be very comfortable on Intex self inflating quality air mattresses.
20 miles east from Highway 395 in peace and quiet, featuring clear dark starry nights and clean dry air. Approximately 60 minute drive north to world famous Lake Tahoe and south to Bridgeport CA. and the historic ghost town Bodie CA. The gorgeous Eastern High Sierra Nevada Mountains are unsurpassed in spectacular beauty during any season, but visit during early autumn for spectacular fall colors as the Aspens turn golden, recently featured in Sunset Magazine.
Cyclists can enjoy the miles and miles of the wide open two lane country roads and the annual Death Ride over the Sierras.
Our nights are clear and starry due to high desert low humidity. Smith Valley is rated as one of the best for stargazing.
Bring your hiking boots, fishing pole, bicycle, motorcycle, boat, cross country skis, camera, or a good book if you just want to relax your mind and body.
