“We loved it!”
Reviewed June 7, 2012

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.

Room Tip: Maybe ask for one with a bathroom?

After reading reviews of places to stay near Great Basin National Park we decided to try out a bed and breakfast. We were very disappointed in the experience starting with the first greeting when we were told to take our shoes off. I am not comfortable running around barefoot (I had not brought slippers) and felt very apprehensive about stubbing a toe, particularly in the VERY dark house at night. Since there was just the two of us we had chosen a queen bed with a shared bath. The room we were given was the size of a big closet with NO room to get out of the bed much less put our luggage and toiletry items. We opted to take the next best room for $39 more, but still was cramped. The little extras we are so used to: ice, TV, clock, in room coffee were not available. The bed was good but the lack of lighting in the hall made going to the bathroom in the night, hazardous. The nights in the canyon are intensely black.

Without a TV we were hard pressed to find evening entertainment. We had expected more of a working ranch setting with animals, outdoor seating for star gazing or at least lighting for the stairs to go outside safely, but the entire lodge was pitch black by 9PM and the outdoor grounds were not lighted. The host had no activities planned for the 6 guests that were staying that night. The breakfast was cook to order and was adequate but nothing special with no meat dish. In short, this B&B was clean and in a nice location, but it was overpriced and not a good value.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a bath but be careful of the much higher price. Thlis B&B is in a nice locat...

we stayed here for a couple of nights on our drive home from Bozeman, MT where we had dropped off my stepson for his first year of college. i had looked at some of the other offerings in Baker and they just didn't look like the kind of places we were looking for. then i found a listing for Hidden Canyon Lodge (Ranch) and tried to make a booking there. it took a bit of time to actually get hold of Robin (her phone was down) but we were so glad that we finally did. the Lodge itself is just beautiful and the location is amazing. you think you have reached an oasis in the middle of the desert high country. we had a end unit suite which gave us access to the front balcony. the room was a very good size with high ceilings and it had a comfortable bed and sofa along with a small table. the views from the room were amazing and the light show you get from the stars at night is a special treat that you will not find elsewhere. robin also provides a very nice breakfast with farm fresh eggs along with other goodies (we had pancakes, potatoes and smoothies on the two days we were there). finally, there are horses, alpaca's (or llamas?), and chickens on the ranch, and we even saw an eagle one morning on the way out. we would certainly stay here again if we were in the area visiting GBNP.

A WORD ABOUT GETTING THERE:

1. the dirt road is good (we drove a BMW Z4-not exactly ideal for such roads) and we had no problems. however, there are three switchbacks/hairpin turns as you get close (about 3/4 mile from the end) to the property. if i hadn't looked at an aerial map view, i might have thought i was on the wrong road. you are not. you are almost at the Ranch.

2. try to arrive in daylight, but if you can't, don't worry. it is still doable. AS YOU LEAVE GARRISON, UT HEADING SOUTH LOOK FOR THE "SPEED LIMIT 65" SIGN ON YOUR RIGHT. THE ENTRY ROAD IS ABOUT 50-100 YARDS BEYOND THAT SIGN. you will also see a pair of black and yellow reflector signs on either side of the road. again, the road to the Ranch is perhaps 30 yards beyond these. once on this dirt road, just drive carefully and watch for jackrabbits. IF YOU ARE HEADING NORTH TOWARDS GARRISON, LOOK FOR THE SIGN "GARRISON" AT THE BEGINNING OF TOWN ON YOUR RHS. YOU HAVE JUST MISSED THE TURNOFF BY ABOUT 30 YARDS IF YOU PASS THIS SIGN.

3. at the end of about 6.2 miles down the dirt road, you will come to a "T" with "parking" indicated by an arrow pointing left, and "lodge" indicated by an arrow pointing right. GO RIGHT. the Lodge is about half a mile further on with the road getting a bit bumpy. you wont see the lights of the house until you are almost upon it.

4. Good luck!

He booked 2 rooms with balcony at the Hidden Canyon Ranch and did not regret it for 1 second!
It turned out that we were the only guest around for the whole weekend, so we basically had the ranch to ourselves.
The ranch and the rooms are immaculately clean, very comfortable beds.

Our hosts were very friendly and they made us feel right at home.
Every morning, they prepared a fresh, good breakfast, even though the combination of foods were a bit "odd" to us Europeans (e.g. pancakces with scrambled eggs)

The only downside, if you could call it that, was that the rooms did not have any TV and the guest TV on the groundlfoor in the ranch, did not work either.

The dirt road you need to take to get to the ranch is no problem at all. Once you then get to the ranch, you drive into this oasis of green gardens. Watch out for the deer and the lama!

What a wonderful surprise for us to find out about Hidden Canyon Ranch. If you've looked for a room near Great Basin Nat'l Park you're aware that the choices are very limited. We were hesitant about staying here because of the dirt road and the possible distance to the park, but as the other reviewer stated, the dirt road is well maintained and no big deal and parts of it are very scenic. The distance to the park wasn't bad either, about 15 minutes. For us the nicest part was that we enjoyed the lodge and the beautiful property it was on more than we enjoyed Great Basin Nat'l Park, however the park and the caves are beautiful.. We enjoyed leisurely strolls around the property and seeing the animals roaming around. They have a beautiful grove of trees where we took a bottle of wine, relaxed and played horseshoes. They also have their own hiking trail. The owners and their family are wonderful people and make you feel very comfortable and welcomed. Everything is immaculately clean and they provide a wonderful fresh breakfast in the morning. I've already been trying to figure out when we can return and recommending it to our friends.

We were able to look at the new Roseberry Retreat Center and it's very nice. I would definitely recommend it for a church or business retreat. The guestrooms at the Roseberry are very nice, as well.

We didn't find many reviews on describing Hidden Canyon Ranch in Baker, NV, but given the limited choices for lodging in Baker, we decided to take a chance, and what a great decision we made!!! DO NOT be afraid of the 6.5 miles of dirt road to get to the lodge and cabins. It is well graded and maintained and is not to be feared. It may seem to you like are driving into the middle of nowhere - up until you arrive, the road leaves you wondering whether you made a wrong turn. Just keep driving! Most dirt roads in the area end here! The end of the trail is worth every piece of dust on that road. My only advice is to arrive before dark on the first night of your stay.

Robin and her husband operate a B&B in a large log-cabin ranch style lodge house. They also have a number of cabins and motel rooms on the property, which I only saw from the outside, but which looked very inviting. The property includes many, many acres of lush green canyon on the border of Great Basin National Park. The drive to the park is only 15 minutes or so and the Lehman Caves are a marvel. Some of the best hiking trails in the park are right on the property of this lodge! It is GORGEOUS country.

On the ranch property we saw many deer and other wildlife, eagles, hawks and an antelope or two. Robin cooks a hearty breakfast each morning as part of your fare , complete with fresh eggs gathered right on the ranch. The beds were great, the rooms were beautifully turned out and the people were fabulous and accommodating. Evening meals are optional and must be arranged in advance, mostly because shopping is a distance away for the proprietors, so they must have firm head count.

And oh, surprisingly enough high speed Internet is available! But be prepared that there is no cell service in the area, even the entire park.

My family can't wait until we have occasion to return to this wonderful place. Oh, don't be surprised to find a friendly llama roaming the property. He gave us lots of giggles one evening when we arrived late one evening to discover him laying in our favorite parking spot.

Hidden Canyon Ranch has our hearty recommendation! We loved this place and are confident that if you give it a chance, you'll leave relaxed and rejuvenated.
