On a picturesque dude ranch in Sandy Valley, Nevada (an hour’s drive from Las Vegas), sits a rustic-chic tiny house that’s perfect for a low-key getaway.
Natural wood furnishings and cowboy-themed decor are a nod to the overall Western theme and surroundings of the petite accommodations suited for a maximum of three people. There’s a queen-sized bed with linens and pillows, plus a pull-out couch that sleeps one. In the bathroom, there’s a flushing toilet and a shower with hot water, and the kitchenette has a stove and refrigerator. Meals can be eaten at a small table situated next to a window that offers ranch views, and for an additional fee, guests can have a tasty breakfast prepared for them. Head to the small rooftop deck furnished with two chairs to relax after a long day at the ranch, ideal for taking in the desert scene and stargazing.
Offering an “authentic Western experience,” guests can explore the property on horseback, take part in (or simply watch) a cattle drive, and attend world-class rodeo events (schedule permitting). At night, guests can enjoy stellar views of the night sky before heading to Pioneer Saloon for food, beer, and live music. The surrounding Mojave Desert (a rugged landscape marked by cacti, canyons, and mountains) can be explored via horseback, hiking, or biking, with trails that are suited for all ages and fitness levels.
Nearby attractions include the Seven Magic Mountains, a public art installation featuring tall towers of colorful boulders, Tecopa Hot Springs, and Death Valley.
