Shady Lady Ranch, south of Scotty’s Junction
Highway 95, Esmeralda County, NV 89003
775-321-3126 or 866-301-5855
As you journey through the barren Nevada desert, stop over at the Shady Lady Ranch, a self-proclaimed “Gem in the High Desert”. Don’t be dissuaded by the brightly painted (and somewhat cheesy) exterior — the interior is posh and elegantly decorated, and Shady Lady’s goal is to please and provide a paradise for the average working man. The parlor is set in a provincial French motif, and Shady Lady also has a room accented in an entirely Asian theme, with a bed designed to be ‘fit for an emperor and his Geisha’. They also have a heart-shaped hot tub to help you relax after a long week of working or driving in the sun. Their hours are Tuesday through Sunday from 7am-midnight, and prices range from $200 to $2,000. Be sure to visit their website or call in advance to find out what their specials are.
