That’s quite a superlative statement but here’s why we feel it’s justified- The hosts, Muffy and David, were friendly, accommodating and interesting to talk to. The setting was more than grand. Spring is a beautiful time of the year in Washoe Valley - the trees were leafed out, flowers were blooming, the alfalfa was green - which all made for a relaxing, picturesque time to sit out and look across their pond at Washoe Lake. What set this B&B apart was that the accommodation is basically a self contained apartment located in a separate wing of the house - with the rustic appeal of grand woodwork underpinning the structure (which was designed by David - an architect - and built by the entire family), the plethora of books and magazines on interesting topics, and an overall warmth that’s hard to duplicate. Not to mention the scrumptious breakfasts that Muffy prepared each morning. Omo and Addie (the 2 delightful, well-behaved dogs) completed the picture - we would have loved to take them home with us! Our B&B experiences have always been positive but this was above the pale! What a great way to spend a birthday weekend - we plan on returning!

Wow!!! Thank you so much. We have been doing the B and B for 29 years now, and we love it because of people like you. Again, thanks for the review.

We have stayed at the Deer Run B&B on numerous occasions. This by far tops our list as the best B&B’s. The bedrooms and bathrooms are just right. The ambience of Deer Run is outstanding. The views are spectacular and the wildlife (especially deer and wild horses) is fascinating. Breakfasts are gourmet. Muffy and David Vhay are outstanding hosts…very interesting backgrounds with a plethora of compelling stories. I am a bit reluctant to submit this glowing review because I selfishly want Deer Run to be available to us for our next visit. Oh well, Muffy and David deserve the praise.

My husband and I had a relaxing and enjoyable stay at this ranch/B&B a short distance from downtown Carson City. The vistas were awe-inspiring and the innkeepers were so welcoming and helpful. David and Muffy gave us great advice on places to go, but even more than that they were delightful to spend time with. The breakfasts were fabulous and served on Muffy's beautiful pottery pieces.. The ranch itself is expansive, scenic, and wonderful. We really hope to visit this unique and comfortable ranch again soon.

Two rooms, each with bath, cozy, fine art everywhere, relaxing in cozy living room with fireplace, lots of books & magazines & photo albums. Recipes & breakfasts to die for. Host/Hostess, David & Muffy, treated us like family & have so much knowledge of the area. She's a potter too - don't miss the studio & bring some cups & dishes home! Outside the landscaping is lush & quiet - birds, frogs, ducks, etc.

This a working farm renting out 2-3 rooms. The rooms are very well done; the hosts were wonderful and very helpful. The bed&breakfast is about 15 minutes outside of Reno; the location is very quiet and enjoyable..
