Old Pioneer Garden

Welcoming guests as a B&B for over 30 years, The Old Pioneer Garden Country Inn is located within an oasis of Northern Nevada's high desert.

The Old Pioneer Garden Inn was built in 1861, the same year that silver prospectors toured the area and established the village of Unionville. Among those seeking fortune in those early days was Samuel Clemens (aka Mark Twain). His Unionville cabin remains standing. Today, most visitors come to this ghost town of about 20 inhabitants just to see Twain's cabin and then move on, but there is so much more.

If you're simply passing through or looking for a quiet western getaway or the perfect place for a wedding, you owe it to yourself to stop at Old Pioneer Garden Country Inn. You'll be glad you did!

Mitzi is a fabulous cook. You won't want to miss out on the delicious home-cooked meals she makes from her garden for visitors.

Unionville's mountainous perch features miles of hiking trails sprayed with wildflowers and frequented by all sorts of birds. In the creek that nestles by the Hadley House, you can fish for German Brown Trout. The next-door neighbor also has horses for you to ride.

Fossil fields about a quarter mile above Unionville contain ammonites. Star Peak, at an elevation of 10,000 feet, contains the ultimate challenge. As for those with more earthbound interests, the slot machines and golf courses of Winnemucca. After a hard day of either climbing, gambling, or golf, hardy visitors will appreciate rustic Kyle Hot Springs.
