I am not sure which room the previous reviewer stayed in, but our room was spacious, comfortable and very clean. Yes, you are asked to remove your shoes in the house. I think this is a great idea as it keeps the floors much cleaner, but it would be good to know about this practice beforehand so that you bring slippers or flip flops for indoors. The bed was very comfortable, and the food delicious. We opted for the evening meal plan. The evening food was really terrific. It is served family style, and there was plenty of it. Robyn is a great cook. You sit at a kitchen or dining room table and get a chance to meet other guests if you so choose. The host family is very friendly and accommodating. When my husband wanted ice, he was able to get it from the refrigerator downstairs. As another reviewer mentioned, there are no TV's in the room. I don't know if the big TV downstairs was working or not as we never used it. The internet worked great. The star show in the evening was entertainment like we could never see at home. It was breathtaking. I did check out the hall light as another reviewer had mentioned it. It was on all night. My husband was up reading downstairs one night, and it was lit up too.
Great Basin National Park is one of the least visited NP's in the US. I am not sure why. The Lehman Cave is not to be missed, and the hikes are gorgeous. We hiked quite a bit on the ranch property too. The views from the deck are spectacular. We would definitely recommend coming here. We had our son and granddaughter with us, and all three generations recommend it.
