Elko County, Nevada is a wide-open, wild, and scenic place, offering beautiful views of the high desert with mountains on the horizon. Ranchers, hunters, and fishermen have sought out land here for decades, as have business-people and entertainment figures looking to combine a quiet rural retreat with an investment in land.  Examples include Reebok founder Paul Fireman, as well as actor Jimmy Stewart, both of whom owned ranches in Elko County.

There is an incredible amount of outdoor recreational opportunities near this property, thanks to the vast quantity of protected wilderness land in Elko County.  The county contains 3 districts of the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest, while also possessing several million acres of US Bureau of Land Management (BLM) land that is available for public use (see BLM map in the pictures on this listing).

This property is located in Burner Basin, in the Last Chance Ranch Subdivision, an approximately 12 mile drive from the town of Elko, according to Google Maps (please verify directions with the Realtor before visiting the property).  While its rural location and desert views provide a relaxing, natural backdrop, modern conveniences such as bars, restaurants, grocery stores, and Walmart are available  nearby in the town of Elko.  Nearby recreational opportunities include:

  • Hiking, hunting, fishing, horseback riding, ATV riding, and camping.
