We drove by it, was not much to see. However, I am one for not wasting the taxpayers money on a house. The area is residential, just a 2-minute run from the former mint museum.

The Governor's Mansion is great. It is classic architecture and they always do a great job of decorating during different holiday seasons. It is in the older west part of town. A must drive by.

It's a joy to drive or walk by and enjoy the tasteful decorations they put up for each holiday season. I apologize to the Governor's family here for my dog marking the property, we walked there so much he 'marked' the trees as his home.

I'll have to applaud the governor of Nevada for being so approachable and living in a more or less normal house. Yes, its mansion looking like in a southern way all white with columns. He is home for Halloween passing out candy and there is not an army of security to guard the place like California or other states. There... More

No public tours are available for the mansion, but you can drive by and gawk as much as you like. It's on a quiet little side street in a residential neighborhood. I was surprised by how large and ornate it was, compared to the capitol building we had just seen.

We stumbled upon the Governor's Mansion while driving through downtown. Was surprised that it is located in residential neighborhood. I expected a much larger residence, in a more secure, private area.

We came across the Governor's Mansion while doing a drive around the historic district. We knew the interior was closed to the public and so we just admired it from the car. My wife loved the old mansion across the street also.

The stories and history is only part of the experience; to see and feel the personal side of the current governor makes this visit very special. I lived in the area for over 20 years and this was the first time I had been inside the house it's self. If you have the opportunity, take the tour.
