John and I have lived in northern Nevada for over 30 years. John moved here when a young boy and spent summers working on a remote cattle ranch. He sold life insurance for the MassMutual Life Insurance Company, and ten years ago started a touring business, Cowboy John Tours LLC. He tours prospective employees for local businesses, tours guests, facilitates the "Ranch Tour" workshop for the National Cowboy Gathering, and shuttles folks to hike the Crest Trail in the Ruby Mountains only about 20 minutes from our house and BNB.
We both love to hike and explore northern Nevada, and John enjoys 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, 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, viewing wild horses, cross-country skiing and snow mobile trips in winter.
We love it when guests make us a DESTINATION, and we go out of our way to show them what the high desert has to offer.
Also we can safely store your recreational equipment on site for a small fee, $20. Snow mobiles, bicycles, ATVs, trailers. What fun equipment will you be bringing when you stay with us? Feel free to leave it here while you explore Elko or go out for dinner in the evening.
I'll send detailed directions to our place a few days before you arrive, or you may input our address, 2030 Kennedy Ave, Spring Creek, NV, into your GPS.
