Ike's Canyon Ranch is located in the high plains desert of Central Nevada. This spot is perfect for those who enjoy wilderness and outdoor activities. The closest town is an hour away and the closest gas station two, this is definitely for those who want to get away from the busy world. The ranch is run on solar and hydro-power, and is heated by a wood stove. We have three different listings for Ike's Canyon Ranch so in total the ranch can accommodate eight people, "special offers" available for those who would like to take advantage of this. There ranch house is beautiful, clean, and comfortable with lots of space to find an area of privacy. If guests have animal allergies this may not be the place for vacation, there are donkeys, cats, dogs, and other various animal which show up from time to time. Ike's Canyon Ranch also holds claim to an abandoned mine, day tours of the mine and other spots such as the Petroglyphs are available for a nominal fee or maps for those who would prefer to go it alone.
Guests will have access to a freshwater pond for swimming, various trails for hiking ranging from easy to difficult (there are plenty of wild horses to see in the canyons), Spencer Hot Spring is relatively close to the ranch and makes for a beautiful evening, a kitchen stocked with utensils and dishes, washer and dryer, clean and stocked bathrooms, fridge and freezer space (it is necessary to stock up on ALL food you will need for the duration of your stay), wireless internet, a T.V. for viewing DVDs only, and last but not least there is a saloon on the property for guest use, bring beverages and we can provide a deck of cards.
Interaction with guests
Jerry, Meredith or Anton will be here for anything guests may need, questions, tours, a hand of cards. That being said there is work which must be done on the ranch so we may be engaged with that but someone will be easy to find for any help whatsoever. If guests are into disappearing into solitude that works for us too. We are extremely friendly and we love meeting people from all different types of circumstances. We are usually always down for a hand of cards.
Other things to note
"In dust we trust" is another Nevada aphorism. The ranch is kept very clean but dust is a constant battle, be prepared for a dusty car, dusty shoes, a dusty face, etc. It is all apart of the experience. Wireless internet is available so e-mailing and imessaging on iPhones works wonderfully but phone service is not available. There is a phone on the ranch for emergencies but keep in mind cell phones will not have service.
As the ranch is powered by solar and hydro, there are a few rules of conservation. Hair dryers, coffee makers, any type of appliance or electronic which generates heat cannot be used as it drains the battery (percolators and french presses are available for coffee). Wireless internet is available but it is necessary to be conservative with downloading, the same applies to the washer and dryer, these are available but please use in moderation. Smoking is allowed outside or in the saloon.
