This Hidden Resort In Nevada Is The Perfect Place To Get Away From It All
If you’re tired of the noise, activity and work-stress of the modern world, finding a quiet place to just take in the sounds of nature can be a real treat. Taking a vacation in a remote place far away from it all can refresh your soul and recharge your batteries. There’s a hidden resort in Nevada that will transport you back to the romantic life of the western cowboy.
Cottonwood Ranch is located in Wells, Nevada and as you can see from the map below, it’s situated far away from big cities or even just small towns! The ranch is at an elevation of 6,037 feet in the Great Basin at the foot of the Jarbridge Mountain range. This area is one of the least visited wilderness areas in the country and you’re sure to find plenty of peace and quiet.
The ranch is a working horse and cattle ranch that has been run by the Smith family for six generations.
Just look at that wide open sky! Not a bit of technology or urban life to see for miles.
You can enjoy taking part in an actual horse drive with the Cottonwood staff. Sitting aside a horse, with the mountains as your backdrop, is a breathtaking feeling. You won’t feel the need for your email and smart phone here with the open range sprawling in front of you.
If you’re looking for less intense activities, you can hike in the meadows and mountains around the ranch. There are many opportunities to see local wildlife such as pronghorn, chipmunks and rabbits.
Bird lovers can see about 50 species in a single day.
Or you can choose to do nothing but sit outside around the ranch grounds and enjoy the mountain air, possibly with a new canine friend.
Guests can relax by a campfire into the evening, joining other guests and the family in conversation and music.
Enjoy a delicious outdoor camp meal cooked by a real cowboy!
Cottonwood Ranch is also part of the Veterans’ Ranch and Wilderness Retreat, a program that helps veterans to rejuvenate themselves through nature and a stress-free environment.
After a restful sleep, take in the tranquil beauty of a western sunrise. And be ready to return home, feeling invigorated and eager to take on your usual hectic pace with gusto!
