What makes this Mobile Home unique
WE are a long way from any city or town. We love the quiet and peace along with the dark night skies,
100% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 7 days before arrival date.
Nothing fancy but perfectly adequate. Access to the park is quick and easy and all the (scant) amenities of Baker are close at hand. The hosts were pleasant and accommodating. I would stay there again on another visit to the park.
Thank you for your review and we hope you come back someday
Great place to stay for a visit to Great Basin NP
Beautiful location just outside the park with amazing views of the surrounding mountain range. Cozy trailer had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. Baker NV is tiny but home to a surprisingly good restaurant, Kerouacs.
Thanks for the review and thanks for staying with us. come back someday.
Great place for family of four while exploring Great Basin National Park
The location is great! Rowena communicated well with us, and let us know that we would need to bring our own food, as it is the 'off season' and there is only one small store nearby. We ate some good pizza at T&D's, the only restaurant open in the 'off season.' The trailer didn't have an oven, but we did fine with the fridge, stove-top and microwave. Worked well for us on our weekend as we toured Lehman's Cave and went snowshoeing (snowshoes available for no cost through the National Park.)
Thanks for staying with us and hope you come back.
Great Basin NP
Baker, NV - October 2018
Our stay in the restored 1952 Mobile Home was delightful.
The owners, Rex & Rowena, are gracious & friendly people. The trailer is sited just behind their home in the very small town of Baker, NV.
The bed was comfortable - plenty of hot water for shower and kitchen - the unit is clean & well stocked - there are many windows allowing in light and views of the landscape. A nice restoration. Original wood paneling throughout. We appreciated the ample park & town information provided (maps, menus, brochures). It helped us plan activities.
We enjoyed the many deer that hopped the fence in the evening to feed just feet from the trailer. We sat at the dining table to watch their evening strolls and sat at the same table in the morning to await the sunrise. Very nice!
Great Basin NP is a 10-15 minute drive and well worth visiting. There are: spectacular views, wonderful alpine type hiking, Lehman Caves tours…and when available…a Ranger led astronomy program.
We especially enjoyed the hike to the Bristlecone Pine Trail and seeing the oldest living organisms in the world. Magnificent!
There is an exceptional restaurant, Kerouac’s, in town (now closed for the winter) which was a happy surprise. Rex recommended it and he was spot on! This is city class dining in a village location. A couple originally from New York owns & operates the restaurant. The food is made from scratch, delicious & interesting, there is a full bar, and service is excellent.
Keep in mind this is a 1952 mobile home. The quarters are small but sufficient. Think of ‘tiny homes’…or a nice efficiency apartment. My wife & I are on the small side. Again, we were quite comfortable. Our top priorities are: Cleanliness - Comfortable Bed - Hot Water - Quietness. The owners hit the bullseye on all four.
The wifi is weak, but it was enough to check email for urgent messages and local information. There is cell reception enough for text to come through….but just enough. This was NOT unexpected. Baker, NV is an ‘out of the way location’. We were there for the Great Basin NP…not to stay glued to our devices.
There is television reception but only a few channels, nothing really for news and such. That did not bother us at all.
Would we stay at this property again? You bet we would!
Thank you so much for a great review, we hope you come back someday.
All the necessities in great location.
This vintage mobile served the needs of me and my friend. perfectly. The owners were friendly and helpful if we needed anything. Enjoyed the deer eating in the orchard at sunset. Location is perfect for anyone wanting to visit Great Basin National Parks - literally 5 minutes from the visitor center.
Thank you for staying with us and welcome you back any time.
