We like to find the most off the beaten path places possible to visit, away from the crowds, and Jerry's ranch definitely fit the bill. From the reviews I had an idea that this place would be amazing but it exceeded all expectations. Right away they welcome us into their home and we felt like we were staying with old friends, and enjoyed a hot tub under the stars, cards in the saloon together, and just overall great company. The place is definitely out in the middle of the desert and takes some time to get to, but it was totally worth it. We went on what we deemed the "Death March" off trail hike through mountains that had likely not been traversed by another human in decades. Tip: For a fun night in the saloon, ask Jerry to play a game of cards!

If you're looking for an experience that's considerably off the path and welcome genuine, personable interactions with others, then this special retreat may be for you. Alternately, if your focus is how much you can fill your instagram feed, then you may want to stick to the main road and sate your media fix on the many vista. The hour+ drive to ranch on a dirt road drive is transformational, as you strip away cell phone service and are applied with a fine layer of dust. The highlight of the stay was spending time with Jerry and Robin. More than consummate hosts, after a day you feel like part of the extended family. There's plenty of space to enjoy the solitude of being miles from anything or anyone else. With some help and guidance from Jerry, we were dropped at the end of a trail and bushwacked into the higher elevations up through aspen forests and back down through dry gullies - a real adventure. Looking forward to returning to Ike's Canyon, and seeing Jerry and Robin before too long.

This is my first TripAdvisor review, I use the reviews all the time so it’s time to contribute. We have fallen in love with Nevada and Highway 50 and we were looking for a place to stay between Ely and Auburn, Ca (Our home). And somehow I came across Ike’s and we are really glad we did. From their website we had a pretty good idea what it was going to be like. No fancy lap pool, no tennis court . . . but we weren’t looking for that. We were looking for something off the beaten path. Ike’s was that and it exceeded our expectations. It’s 30 or so miles down an unpaved road off of highway 50. They met us in Eureka, NV to make sure we knew how to get to their place. Their place was pretty much what we expected, there was a stone cabin and a main house. Since we were the only guests (they pretty much book one party at a time), we had the option of the main house or the cabin – and we tried them both. We really had the place to ourselves. The stone cabin was pretty fun though. You bring your own food to cook, which is fine by me. But they has staples if you forgot something. Life at Ike’s is very relaxed. We basically just chilled. The kids (our daughter and her friend) would spend their time with the donkeys, gathering eggs from the chicken coop or kayaking in the pond. They spent zero time on their devices. Their only goal was the beat Jerry (one of our hosts) at 22. Which brings me to the hosts. They were just mega fun and part of the package. By the end of our stay we felt like they were not just hosts but friends. We thoroughly enjoyed both Jerry and Robin. They took some time out to show us around, one time was up into Ike’s Canyon to an Aspen grove, which we didn’t expect here. And to White Rock Canyon. Both well worth the drive. We would like to explore the Monitor Valley more in the future. And they made great tour guides. (And we now have some fun stories to tell, but as they often say, “What happens in the Monitor Valley stays in the Monitor Valley). I think our favorite part of being at Ike’s was just hanging out, no devices, no TV (they had one, but it was never on), just a pond, a kayak, some donkeys,.and a chicken coop. There was a well stocked kitchen. The evenings would usually involve a couple beers and a few games of 22. My wife loved the hot tub, since they are off the grid it’s a wood fired hot tub. And after a couple glasses of wine, sitting in that hot tub looking up at the stairs . . . well, no fancy lap pool or tennis court can compete. It’s pretty unique and special. So if you are looking for some place unique and special, I would highly recommend Ike’s. It’s a different pace. If you are looking for someplace off the beaten path to just chill or for a change of pace, we highly recommend Ike’s Canyon. I feel certain we will be back once we improve on playing 22, our daughter feels she has unfinished business.

What an incredible treat! We just spent 3 days with 6 friends and our hosts Jerry and Robin at their mountain retreat in the high desert of central Nevada. A truly special and memorable experience featuring spectacular sunrises and sunsets and vast landscapes, in an area rich in geological and archaeological history in addition to wild horses, antelope, wild flowers, and quaking Aspens. You can choose solitude or — as you wish — hearing engaging stories about the area from Jerry and reflections from Robin about what animates her short story writing. We can’t wait to return!

If you're looking for a great, rustic time, book with Jerry and Robin at the Ike's Canyon Bed and Make-Your-Own-Breakfast lodging. Located between Austin and Belmont, NV, this working ranch is situated in a heavenly spot full of pinyon-juniper and quaking Aspen trees. Wildflowers abound. The lodge has all the amenities anyone could wish for, including an excellent kitchen. You will share your stay with Jerry, Rocky the goat, Pearl the dog, a couple of dozen wild horses, a herd of antelope and the most gorgeous, temperate days and cool nights. The hosts have stories that will fascinate all. Book it before everyone finds this amazing place!!
