The Doll House, as it is locally known, is cozy and snug with an upstairs bedroom with double bed, a loft with a single bed, and a fold out couch in the living room. It has been recently renovated and furnished, with a modern bathroom and kitchen, provided with all the necessary implements and appliances for any culinary activity. Free Wi/Fi but no cable. 2 nite min. 8% tax incl.
The Doll House was built in 1880 by the Tognoni family who kept a store on Main Street, and it appears in many photos of early-day Eureka. The town itself is a eloquent reminder of one of the most exciting periods in American history, the westward rush for gold and silver, and the surrounding countryside is an open invitation to exploration and enjoyment. This is the real west, the true west, wide open and (mostly) unspoiled.
The town of Eureka is a photogenic remnant of 19th century Nevada's mining booms. It is the seat of Eureka County, and while mining was active at the Ruby Hill Mine west of the town until recently, it is mining far to the north that makes the County prosperous. Eureka
has all the conveniences of a city but the charm of a small town. Restaurants, grocery and hardware stores, museum, opera house, laundromat, swimming pool (year round), medical clinic, etc. Crime is unheard of. People are friendly here if you are, but if you prefer anonymity, Eureka will let you have your way.
US 50 was once the Pony Express Trail and the country around Eureka harks back to earlier times. This is hunting and fishing country and ATV heaven. A set of detailed BLM maps are in a drawer for your use, inviting you explore our beautiful landscapes.
A network of well maintained dirt roads leads you to forgotten mines, abandoned homesteads, ghost towns and exquisite views. Wild horses roam across our valleys and mountain ranges, and you will see wild life in abundance--horses, pronghorn antelope, coyotes, fox, deer, elk, bobcat, and cougar.
There are lots of activities to do in the town and surrounding countryside:
Ghost Towns/ historic mining camps
Year Round events
Year Round Swimming
Paranormal (Any ghosts at the Doll House are friendly)
