We're in Carson Valley, NV (Gardnerville) with stunning views in one direction of Job's Peak (Sierra) 2.5 miles away and 6,000 ft. above us. Ranches / farms to the north of us with closest residence 3/8 mile away. To the east we look across the Valley to the Pine Nut Mountains. Our property is 2.5 acres and fully landscaped with 80 trees and five lawn sections. The Minden and Gardnerville business area is 12 minutes away. Carson City is 25 minutes north. South Lake Tahoe to stateline (Harrah's and Harvey's, etc) is 25 minutes. Markleeville (CA alps) is 20 minutes to south. Reno is approx. 50 minutes to the north of us. Heavenly Ski Nevada side is 15 minutes. Kirkwood Ski area is 30 miles and 40 minutes away. The historic first community in Nevada named Genoa (founded 1851) is 10 minutes north.
Please no smoking anywhere on the property.
We like friendly dogs, but have no pets of our own.
Enjoy the unbelievable scenery! We really like helping with info about the area and ideas of things to do.
Everything paved all the way to and on our property. We're on a short, dead end street off of a fairly major 2 lane road.
I should mention that for pull through parking it will be in the loop to the front side of the home. I have fresh water and 120 VAC, 15 A available there.
To the rear of the home behind our attached garage and next to my detached garage is a huge level concrete area. IT IS NOT A PULL THROUGH SPOT. In that area I have 120 VAC, 30A (TT-30R) and also 120VAC, 15A. There's also a tap that supplies our fantastic well water nearby.
No problem in that we have 12,000 sq ft of asphalt driveway area within our 2.5 acre property. So there's no need to even consider using the street.
We do some last minute trips in our camper in the summer, but feel free to give us a shout and see if we can accommodate you.
Tahoe (everything you can think of to do there), Genoa (Mormon Station State Park, Genoa Bar in continuous operation since 1853), Virginia City (historic silver/gold mining town), Markleeville (Grover Hot Springs), Carson Valley (Tahoe Minden airport- world renowned sailplane rides, skydive center), hundreds of miles of OHV roads in the Pine Nut Mountains, historic Dangberg Ranch, world class fly fishing on the forks of the Carson River, hiking 5 minutes away in Fay-Luther Canyon trails, 5 more trail systems in the Valley. Bentley Heritage Distillery- Tours and spirits (Gin and Vodka right now)- Gambling in the local casinos or at Tahoe. Highway 88-Hope Valley recreation area. Photography outings and excursions to see wild horses in the Pine Nuts. If you're an outdoor person (winter and summer), this is the area! World class skiing all around Tahoe! Too much to recount all possibilities right here!
It’s hard to decide what was more incredible about our stay—the stunning property and location or the warm, welcoming, generous hosts—everything about our stay exceeded even our loftiest hopes and expectations.
We thoroughly enjoyed delightfully knowledgeable, colorful, and helpful conversations on the patio—learning and sharing with one another while watching the sun rise up and down over the Sierras.
It’s rare to find such kindness and connection in this world—the beauty and friendship found here in the Carson Valley feels like a miraculous gift for which we’ll be forever grateful.
Both Ken and Jerilyn made us extremely welcome at their home at the foothills of the Eastern Sierra.
Your comments and advices were appreciated. Sadly after 3 nights we said our goodbyes as we head north on this trip to the West Coast of the USA
John and Judy
Really nice and personable couple. Property was like a resort in the low hills below the mountains. They provided good directions to some beautiful scenic attractions. Really enjoyed our time with them. A+
I could never even begin to do justice insofar as giving my stay at the Carson Valley Scenic Estate a great review. Not only was the space / accommodations absolutely PERFECT, the host was one of the nicest persons you could ever wish to meet. Unfortunately I was not able to meet his wife who was traveling. If you get a chance to stay here consider yourself lucky! If you want to watch of video of us having a real adventure on his UTV in the Sierra click here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pc3aDx62ZIA
