Ready to get to know one of the most famous Silver mining boomtowns in Nevada? There’s no better way than an overnight stay at the Union Street Lodging B&B, situated within walking distance of the Austin Historic District. The halfway point between Reno and Baker along the Loneliest Road in America, an overnight stay in historic Austin is a great way to break up this celebrated Nevada road trip, with all the creature comforts of home, to boot.
Situated in a building that’s been part of the Austin story from the very beginning, the Union Street Lodging B&B was first built in 1860 and has been lovingly preserved and built onto by current proprietors. All rooms are named after historic figures and events in Austin, with tasteful decor, photos, and memorabilia from the era. Set in a quiet residential neighborhood just two blocks from Austin’s main street, this historic Nevada B&B features antiques, a restful shaded deck, and a tree-covered yard with a great view. Four non-smoking guest rooms are available.
Start your day with coffee, tea, or hot chocolate, and a home-cooked breakfast. Then explore the sights and sounds of historic Austin and the spectacular Toiyabe Mountains that surround. Jump on the newly improved Toiyabe Crest Trail for hiking and mountain biking, learn the history of the City of Churches at a handful of historic buildings, visit the Austin Historical Society, and more.
For a more rustic retreat, consider staying in Union Street Lodging’s sister property, the Kingston Cabin. Located 30 miles south in stunning Kingston Canyon, this cozy, wooden, two-bedroom cabin puts up to four guests right at the base of the Toiyabe Mountains, with unbeatable access to hiking and mountain biking, fishing, stargazing, and clinking cold ones at the Lucky Spur Saloon (conveniently located just steps away)—as well as to the wonders of sweeping Big Smoky Valley, home to Spencer Hot Springs, Toqiuma Cave, Hickison Petroglyphs, and much more.
Union Street Lodging B&B is open year round. For more information on making your reservation and planning your trip to Austin, please get in touch with Union Street Lodging B&B proprietors directly at(775) 964-2364.
