Cabin at Artist's Remote Nevada Ranch Oasis with Pool

Located in: Cedarville
Spectacular 320 acre isolated working ranch, no neighbors, total solitude, awesome panoramas: lush meadows, snow-capped peaks to the west, rim-rock buttes/tablelands to the east, exuberant sunsets, warm spring-fed swimming pool, park-like lawn/trees, owned by artist (painter)... Great hikes in every direction, exquisite wild hot springs 1/2 hour away. Perfect place to relax, de-stress, de-program, be creative, be with Nature (and with your true nature.) (Closed Dec -- March, for winter, open April 1.)

The space
Enjoy vast vistas, immense skies, and solitude at the historic Long Ranch (est.1890's, before that a native settlement for millennia), in Surprise Valley.... This small working ranch encompasses 320 acres of high desert ranchland on the far northeast edge of California, just over the Nevada border. High rim-rock tablelands of the Hays Range, towering peaks of the Warner Mountains, spring-fed pastures and desert sand dunes are your welcoming views from a private rustic cabin. This cabin has off-grid electricity for lighting and internet, and good water which flows from a natural warm spring up the mountain. The bathhouse, with clawfoot tub, shower, 2 toilets and 2 sinks,
is located only forty feet away. Shade trees and lawn surround a beautiful warm (80 degree) spring-fed pool 100 feet away for your enjoyment. Wander the ranch grounds, sit on an old corral fence, hike the nearby canyons and mesas of the Hayes Range or across the valley up into The Warner Wilderness, seek out the local wild hot springs, or just relax, absorb the magic & solitude, and have an epiphany or two...

Guest access
Bathhouse, swimming pool and surrounding lawn, adjacent corrals and most of property, including the best outdoor asphalt basketball court in northwest Nevada, are open for guest access. (The pasture is usually hosting 80 head of cattle, so visiting w them is possible, though not recommended...). The old ranch house, the new studio, the workshop, storage sheds, and ranch equipment and any posted areas are not open for guest incursions without invite...

Interaction with guests
I'm available for help/advice/info, if needed... I'm pretty gregarious... (if I'm not around, there is a family here I'm partnering with who will be happy to assist.)

IMPORTANT: Please do not bring/use any devices that require/produce electric heat, such as small heaters, hairdryers, toasters, electric pads/blankets, coffee/espresso machines, electric tea kettles, etc. MY ELECTRIC SYSTEM WILL NOT BE ABLE TO HANDLE THE EXTRA LOADS.

The internet usually works, kind of slow tho. Cell phones maybe -- Verizon is best carrier, others: not so good to non-existent service...

Don't get stuck out here without gas/water. Don't drive too fast on the dirt roads ( too fast is over 45-50). Watch what you're doing, where you're walking. Try not to do anything too stupid -- it's a long way to town.

DON"T BE CARELESS WITH FIRE: I'm not particularly happy with cigarette smoking, inside or out.....

To ranch is really remote , off-grid, NOT your typical corporate Ritz-Carleton "Western" dude ranch "experience".... Expect extreme solitude, quiet, plenty of dust (it's a fact of life here), various types of free-range organic wild critters in wild country, being far from the "safety" of "civilization".... (similar to hiking/camping in wilderness, except you have access to your vehicle, not to mention a swimming pool, electricity, a fully-operable kitchen, internet, etc, etc....) To repeat: do not expect the ranch to meet your urban standards, leave them back where they belong...

DOGS: the dogs, Harley & Sandy, are very friendly & have no belligerent attitudes towards people or other dogs. They do bark at night when the coyotes are howling, which can be annoying . (I use earplugs when necessary, recommend bringing some in case they get on your nerves.) The alternative to letting them bark would be to keep them inside, but then my ranch most likely would be quickly overrun with coyotes, & possibly also a mountain lion now & then, which I am sure their presence keeps at bay... So, that's a trade-off I'm not ready to contemplate. As for guests' dogs, if they're well-behaved, don't chase cats or cows, and their owners don't let them shed too much debris --burrs, foxtails, hair -- on the couches & rugs, I'm good with them....& Harley & Sandy will enjoy the company...

There is another similar ranch cabin at this this one is unavailable, check to see if the other is....
