Located in the core of the quiet, northeastern community of Jarbidge, the Outdoor Inn is the perfect place to drop off the grid and get away from it all. Buried deep in the spectacular Jarbidge Wilderness Area, visitors to this portion of the state can dive into the spirit of the state with unparalleled backcountry adventures in spectacular countryside. Phenomenal hunting and fishing are right around the corner, and if you’re in search of unfiltered, Wild West history, you’ve certainly come to the right place.
While Jarbidge’s enchanting history dates all the way back to the early 1900s, the Outdoor Inn was constructed in 1970 and been a staple in the community since. A terrible fire decimated the property in 1999, but by the year 2000 was completely rebuilt and opened for business again. Having just celebrated their 45th anniversary, the Outdoor Inn couldn't be a better launching pad for outdoor adventure in one of the most special places in the state.
Boasting a rustic, 10-room hotel, seven suites with in-room bathrooms, and a 14-unit RV Park with full hookups, the Outdoor Inn offers a variety of lodging options fit for just about every need and budget. Best yet, the Outdoor Inn features an on-site restaurant with mouthwatering home-style cooking, with specialty items like homemade breads, jellies, pies and ice cream. The burger is pretty dang good too. The property also features a full-service bar, which is the perfect place to quench your thirst and hear local lore from friendly locals.
Whether passing through this alluring ‘living ghost town’ or stopping in for a good meal and great conversation, be sure to take note of the arrows jutting out of the wall in the bar. As most of Nevada’s record deer come from this region, anyone who has nabbed their game bow hunting is invited to shoot an arrow into the wall inside the bar. Also, you cant refuse tradition of penning your signature on the bar wall!
A true gem buried deep in the heart of some of the most beautiful backcountry in Nevada, make Jarbidge and the Outdoor Inn a place to see on your next Silver State adventure. It will certainly be an excursion you wont soon forget.
Motel is open May thru November. Reservations recommended.
