shady lady bed and breakfast beatty nevada

Ready for a dose of true Nevada personality to go along with your Free-Range Art Highway discoveries? Search no further than the Shady Lady Bed & Breakfast, situated between Beatty and Goldfield along Nevada’s US Highway 95. Once one of the most famous legal brothels in the Silver State, this lodging honored the West’s oldest profession up until 2014. New owners have taken over in the years since, offering up a different type of room-for-rent by converting the property into a cozy B&B for an Uncommon Overnighter experience you won’t forget.

What do a heart-shaped bathtub, wild peacocks roaming the grounds, and million-dollar views have in common? Up until 2014, this only-in-Nevada property operated as the Shady Lady Brothel. Today, it’s one of the most comfortable, personality-packed Uncommon Overnighters in the Silver State.

The Shady Lady Bed & Breakfast has four themed rooms awaiting you, each embracing original oddities with upgraded luxury amenities. Enjoy a heart-shaped jetted tub in the Paradise Room or go for a swim in the pool outside the Willow Tree Cabin, which feels like a mountain retreat in the middle of the desert. The Victorian Room feels stately and charming, while the Asian Room features antiques and a fireplace.
