    Genuine Western experience. The hosts are very friendly. Lovely communal breakfast under the trees in the garden. Truly a place to "get away from it all" for a couple of days.

    Waaaay off the highway. Long way to drive for anything. Our initial reaction was a bit shocked, as the building looks quite run-down from the outside, although inside, everything is spic and span (except for bugs on windowsills). Also, only one bedroom had a fan.

    This is an absolute gem of a place to stay and well worth the detour to find it. Dont lose heart as you drive a long way into an empty desert valley, either via a paved road from interstate 80 or, as I did, a dirt road over the mountain, Unionvile is there, hidden in a canyon. The house is a lovely period building, comfortable and interesting. You get a homely breakfast back in the owners house.

    The nearest and only place to eat is the Star Point general store near the highway, 15 miles away! Eat before you arrive or bring some food to cook in the kitchen.

    If you want to step back 100 years, this is the place to go. Good country food, served at the owners home.

    weather was cool, I'd recommend later, March was a bit too cool but i did sleep very well and long.

    It was different and the breakfast was amazing. The host were friendly and nice.

    Too isolated, but for some people that is a plus. It was a cold night and we felt sort of trapped inside a drafty cabin. The bathroom wasn't clean and there was dust on all the surfaces. But, the dust probably blows in through all the drafty places!

    David and Mitzi are wonderful hosts. The buildings are in good shape for their age and location. Great place to truly "get away from it all."

    Animals wandering around in kitchen and dining room while breakfast being made and served. I understand "animal friendly" locations, but their must be limitations to this allowance. This would be the only reason I would reconsider visiting again.

    We stayed in The Fieldhouse which is a 150 year old farm house. It has tons of character, is full of bookshelves and books, and antique furnishings. The beds in our room were very comfortable with nice linens. Unfortunately we arrived too late to have dinner, but breakfast was wonderful. We loved it and we will be back.

    The owner Dave and his mom Mitzi have a special touch in serving and bringing together their guests around a dinner table. Breakfast was a delight and meeting all the other guests was a treat.

    There were not any curtains on the windows in the room we stayed in. However, there were curtains in the other room in which we had a choice to stay. The room with the curtains had a smaller bed(double) and we preferred the extra sleeping space(queen) but would have also liked the privacy of curtains.

    The place is magical. Located way out in the desert of NV, it is an oasis of quiet and tranquility. There are trees and a stream and all the rooms are in very beautifully restored rustic old houses. There are antiques and books and farm animals and good food provided by the very warm and generous innkeepers. It is a perfect place.

    This is a unique experience in a Nevada mountain setting. It is great for a relaxing get-away in a rustic but comfortable large cabin (actually a house). The staff is friendly and personable.

    Not a thing. We had only regrets. We never saw anyone after we were let through the door except to go tell them the air conditioning was still not working. No breakfast, no ice, nothing.

    Everything turned off- air conditioning, refrigerator. No ice, no coffee. No one to greet us/passer by, son asked me what I was doing. I told him trying to check in. Asked to have air conditioning fixed/Not. We were let in and just given a place to sleep. We were the only ones there. We hated it.

    Owners were great. We loved the space, era appropriate furnishings, great breakfast outside and the opportunity to forgo the usual truck stop hotel along the interstate at the end of our 2 week driving vacation.

    No complaints--just a few notes to visitors perhaps expecting something else. Visitors need to be aware it is off the beaten path, in old farmhouses which means possible spiders and dust--we are used to that from staying at cabins in Montana. This is not like a New England bed and breakfast, it is western style guest houses separate from the owners' property--I liked the privacy. Also very important not to follow the directions from Mapquest--if we had we would have driven a 4 wheel drive dirt road over the mountain. Use Exit 49 route as directed by owners.

    Isolated quiet area. Saw deer, rabbit, quail, sheep, lots of birds. Great place to unwind.

    I will also be writing them about this. We had a family of 6 and needed two rooms to sleep 3 each. I ordered those at $95 a room and expected to pay $180. When we arrived, we were told they had 2 rooms to sleep 5 and if we wanted another room we had to pay an extra $95. We didn't have it and asked if my husband could sleep on the couch so as not to use another bed or room and save an extra charge. It was okayed. So only two rooms (3 beds) were used and my husband slept on the couch. At payment time, we were given a bill for $232, not $190. I don't know what the extra charge was for. However, because our young people were enjoying a baby goat and dog the next morning at bill paying time, I did not want to damper their happiness by complaining about the bill. I knew I would be writing later and requesting the difference. We caused no extra work on beds or rooms and expected only a $190 bill. Again, we expected enough beds so we were greatly disappointed when they could have told us way ahead of time they couldn't supply that.
